Memory box, the wooden keepsake box

We all have a nostalgia enthusiast in our lives. That mate or family member that’s constantly dragging out the embarrassing baby photos, the shells from the 1988 beach holiday, and if it’s your mum and she’s particularly sentimental – the baby teeth. We know at least half of you have found that Malteasers box she has full of your tiny pearly whites.

Well however, weird, wonderful, or truly cringeworthy the memories (and discarded body parts) your retrophile wants to keep, the Luckies Memory Box has been beautifully designed to house your memories and all their accompanying paraphenalia.

Memory box for keepsakes

The beautifully designed Memory Box includes

  • A notebook, great for jotting down memorable times, dates, and places.
  • A metal Keepsakes tin, ideal for coins, shells, and all kinds of tiny holiday finds.
  • A reinforced paper wallet with a string-tie closure for ticket stubs, ye olde passport photos, and postcards.
  • Paper tags for labelling your historic treasure.
  • A glass tube with a screw top great for sand, earth, sea water, or pebbles. Note: We cannot be held responsible for what you mutate in here!

Keepsake box for memories

The Memory Box is the perfect wedding gift

The Memory Box is a gift perfect for so many occasions; whether it’s a wedding gift for impending honeymooners, a new baby gift for keeping those important firsts (including but certainly not limited to those teeth), or you’ve got some memories of your own that need cataloguing, this sweet wooden keepsake box has compartments and organisational tools abound that will help you do that.

Store souvenirs in the memory box

Even sweeter, buy it as a gift for someone else and fill it with memories before they even open it. We can’t guarantee sobbing and BFF sentiments, but they’d basically have to be a monster not to shed a single tear…

3 killer secret santa gifts

Secret santa gift ideas

It’s time. You can resist all you want, but you know, every year, whether it’s office, knitting circle, or Tuesday night football league; you are going to get dragged into the potentially very stressful game of Secret Santa. Sometimes the universe will cut you a break, and you’ll get an easy ride. Someone you know exactly what sort of gift to buy. Exactly what paper to wrap it in even. But sometimes, sometimes Saint Nick can be a cruel and unforgiving deity, and you get Dwayne in accounting who has no discernible interests, or that girl from football whose name you’ve only worked out through process of elimination.

Whatever gifting struggle Christmas has thrown at you, with whatever budget, one of these 3 killer Secret Santa gifts should do the trick…

Under a tenner – Hologram Viewer

Everyone loves pretty lights, especially at Christmas, and if they can fit them in their pocket, then all the better. The Luckies Hologram Viewer allows your fortunate receiver to create their own artistic magic through an app they download, and then project their creations from their phone and out in the world. The perfect gift for any techies, design geeks, and people who can’t stay off their phones, which might be everyone at this point.

Office Space – DIY Wheelie Bin Desk Tidy

If you’re sharing your desk with the sort of monster who chews their pens and leaves them all over the place, they might be in need of the Luckies Wheelie Bin Desk Tidy. Not only will it keep all their leaky biros, scissors, and cocktail sticks that no one understands why they neat and tidy and away from you, they can also doodle all over the bin, claiming it as their own.

Festive Fancies – Nutter Cookie Cutter

Everyone knows that really, deep down, the only thing anyone really cares about at Christmas besides the cool gifts is the food. The trifles. The roast. The cold cuts the day after. The cranberry sauce. The cheeseboards. And then…the biscuits. In some cultures it’s traditional to hang biscuits from the actual tree. We’re telling you now – they wouldn’t last 5 minutes in the Luckies office. But if you think your Secret Santa victim might fare a little better, the Nutter Cookie Cutter is ready to make all the squirrel shaped cookies Christmas could possibly require. And maybe they’ll make you some before the January guilt diet kicks in.

5 must have kitchen gadgets

Message rolling pin

Whether you’re a culinary wizard or still eating microwave noodles for 2 out of every 3 meals, there’s 101 ways to make your life a little easier in the kitchen. From cookie cutters to rolling pins, Luckies has something fro you, whether you’re the sort of food lover that loves to cook the food, or simply eat it.

Avocado Spoon Rest

Spoon rest

The Avocado Spoon Rest is perfect for all the messy pups whether that’s you or a gift for your favourite kitchen disaster. Keep greasy spoons off the work surfaces by resting in the middle. Easy to clean, and we wager there aren’t too many people around these days who don’t love an avocado.

Message Rolling Pin

Rolling Pin

Maybe your biscuit baking isn’t totally up to scratch, but that isn’t going to matter from now on thanks to our Message Rolling Pin. This cool gadget has 3 interchangeable silicon wraps that mean when you roll out your pastries and doughs, you can choose to imprint one of 3 messages; “Made With Love”, “Secret Recipe”, and “Bite Me”. Give your baking the personal touch (and maybe distract people from the taste if you’re not too good at it).

Chilli Herb Infuser

The Chilli Herb Infuser means that even if you aren’t a master chef, you can still storm the frontiers of flavour without cramming your dishes full of loose bay leaves, cardamom pods, and cinnamon sticks. And just for the record, we don’t know if all of those should ever be used together in a recipe. Simply fill the silicone chilli with your herbs, close it up, and let it sit in your stew or soup. It couldn’t be easier.

Agatha Steam Releaser

Agatha the Steam Releasing witch is perfect for keeping your spoon attached to the pot, ready for stirring at a moments notice. You’re also able to rest the lid on her, so she can release the steam from your bubbling pots (cauldron?). We’re not sure if her magic extends to making the food taste nice, but she’s a handy cool gadget that should make your life easier.

Farfalloni Pasta Shaped Pot Grips

Pasta shaped pot grips

The Farfalloni pot grips mean no more awkward dragging your tea towel through your dinner when draining pasta, potatoes, rice, or anything else. Fix the grips to your pot handles and tip away. Also great for carrying hot pots to the table. Don’t take the first aid kit out of the kitchen just yet, but don’t worry quite so much about developing those asbestos hands that all mums seem to have.

Unusual Valentines Gifts For Him

If your other half says they don’t care about Valentines Day, they are almost always lying. Men, women, it doesn’t matter. People love getting gifts. That’s why you’re here. That’s also why we’re here.
As free and easy as the British are known to be with their emotions (…), there is something to be said for an understated gift. Flowers, chocolates, and human sized teddy bears are very well, but also flowers die, too much chocolate will give you diabetes, and that bear is almost certainly a fire hazard. We tell you this not out of bitterness, but because it is simply no longer acceptable to give these gifts to your Valentine.

If you’re struggling trying to come up with something a little more unusual to gift your beau when February 14th rolls round, we’ve got plenty of gadgets that’ll make it clear exactly how you feel.

You Complete Me is a jigsaw that you can customise however it is you want for your Valentine. Put together the small heart shaped puzzle, write your slushy message, then pull the pieces apart and put it back for them to decipher themselves. There are four choices for the box colour. Obviously in this instance, we’d suggest a red one.

Tell someone they’re just your cup of tea (yes, we know, let us have this one though) with our Biskviti Tea Infuser. A biscuit shaped tea infuser for your boy who loves a brew. Bag of nice tea to go with it; you’re sorted. Maybe get him a packet of biscuits to go with it as well, that way you might end up with something to eat if he hasn’t thought as far ahead as dinner.

With the gifts and gadgets we have for you here, you won’t need to run out and panic buy novelty boxer shorts ever again. And we’re sure we speak for both parties when we say; this is a GOOD thing.

Winning Father’s Day Gifts

We all get stuck occasionally, but you’re here because you’re trying to be better. Your dad has been your dad your whole life, and the minute you stopped making him cards out of screwed up tissue paper and painted peanut shells; you started buying him socks. It’s okay. We understand. We’ve been through this ourselves. Socks, ties, book vouchers. Sometimes they ask for these things, but that doesn’t mean it feels good to give them. The ties, the novelty boxer shorts, The sunglasses cases (when you’re not even sure if he has any sunglasses, but sunglasses themselves are too expensive), the Gap vouchers. The list of gifts men are given when people are stumped is never-ending, and we basically just fell asleep listing them.

You don’t want to be the boring present giver. There is nothing quite so embarrassing and soul destroying as having someone pick a random gift off the table, ask him who bought it, and hear him say “Oh, I’m not sure, I forgot”. HE FORGOT. And that is a reality you will have to face on a regular basis if you continue to purchase your gifts from the Men’s Bathroom section of the Argos catalogue.

If you’ve found yourself here looking for inspiration, then you’re a mere sidestep away from our Gadgets section. Your Salvation. Your lifesaver. No more slogging up and down the high street, furiously spinning around in the gift sections of major department stores. Have a good hard think, right now, about the city centre in the run up to Christmas. Are you really going to do that to yourself, all for a pair of cuff links that he almost certainly will never wear? No no.

At Luckies we pride ourselves on creating and curating the most unusual, innovative, and exciting new ideas in gifting. We’ve thought of it all; office, home, kitchen, garden, DIY, travel. But, you know, don’t let us tell you what to do. If you can come up with a more unusual use for one of our gadgets or gizmos that better suits your purpose, we’d hate for you to feel like we were boxing you in.

Your Guide To Luckies Gift Wrapping

Equally as difficult, and often ignored when it comes to the business of giving gifts, is exactly how you present them to your giftee. The amount of options can be quite crippling. Do you gift bag? Wrapping paper? Does it need tissue paper too? Bows? Tags? Do you tape the card on, or give it seperately? Is this paper too boring? Is it too busy? Don’t pretend you don’t worry just as much about what’s outside as what’s inside, because we know we do.

Some of us are born with the skill, and some of sadly just aren’t. There’s no shame in it, because really it’s what’s inside that counts. Still, it would be nice to have a few gadgets to make your gifts look a little more presentable…

Our Gifted Gift Bows more than solve the problem of how to tie that bow round fiddly little boxes. A stretch bow on a band that your simply place round your package. We can’t begin to tell you how time this frees up at Christmas.

If you’re wanting to customise and give your gift a little more personality, Just Your Type are our gold foil stickers. Various designs and alpahbets in different fonts mean you can make plainer wrapping far more exciting and personal.

Similarly, our Doodle Washi Tape is sticky tape that comes with different pictures and patterns on. Complete with 4 colouring pencils, you can then customise the tape your heart’s content. Whilst it’s not a time saver exactly, it will bring a special something to any gift you give, and you can’t argue that that’s not time well spent.

Whilst your old Grandma will always tell you it’s what’s inside that really matters, she couldn’t deny that she’d be pretty disappointed to get her Christmas present wrapped in newspaper and a carrier bag. These little treats from us here at Luckies mean that whether you’ve got the gift of wrapping or not, it’ll always at least look like you do.

Gadgets for guys, perfect for any occasion

Remember your first car? We do. Despite the fact that they are often never worth the money you pay for them, filthy inside within minutes, and highly possibly two different cars welded together; the single best thing about passing your test, is finally having a car to call your own.

If you’re looking to buy a gift or gadget for someone who recently passed their test, we’ve got plenty for you, whether their car is shiny brand new, or a rust riddled dust bucket on wheels.

Safety should come first, no matter your ride, and whilst you’d like to hope your new driver isn’t especially accident prone, these things do happen. The First Aid pouch actually comes in a pack of two; smaller for the glove box, and a larger one ideal for sticking in the boot. With plenty of room for plasters, bandages, and sun cream, there’s no need for any of those road trips they’ve been planning for the last years worth of lessons to go array.

As important as it is to be safe on a road trip, we think you’ll find the next most important thing is the picnic you bring. Some would say more important, but we’d never suggest you prioritise the vehicle snacks over safety…

The Luckies Brown Paper Lunch Bag means you can bring whatever you want along for the ride, and it’ll stay as hot or cold as it was when you put it in the bag. Road colas, chocolate bars, maybe a yoghurt for the more sensible amongst you. Pop it in the bag and stick the top closed with the built in magnet. So much cooler than the flowery cooler bag your Ma got free at Tesco and gave to you.

Whether you’re lucky enough to have your car look like something from Fast and Furious, or it’s the aforementioned tin can with a petrol tank, a few gadgets will definitely give it the edge. We’re living in the future, even if their car isn’t. There are no longer any excuses for those smelly tree air fresheners.
