Usually a week doesn’t go by without a friend or relative asking me for gift ideas. I can usually come up with a few good suggestions but with at least one birthday party on the schedule every weekend for the little ones I sometimes need a little fresh thinking in the gift department too. Two British gals with backgrounds in public relations and journalism have started The Handpicked Collection as a way to make gift giving for all ages smart and simple. Their range of unusual and best of breed gifts has been chosen by a panel of experts including leading journalists from glossies such as Harpers Bazaar, In Style and Red as well as stylists and trendsetting entrepreneurs.
The Handpicked Collection has recently launched their Birthday Reminder service. Just create a profile and add important dates that require gifts and the service will not only alert you by email of upcoming key dates but will also provide a tailored selection of gift ideas for the person involved according to the budget you set. Their list of Top Toys is sure to cause a few oohs and ahhhs.
