Okay, so maybe not everyone took as great a pleasure in fantasy shopping as we did. Living in the countryside in months such as this one meant you made your own fun. We couldn't afford all the niknaks we saw, but no less did we want them.
Recently, we did a Valentines Day post about Firebox.com, a gift site for grownups and it stirred up those familiar desires in me.
Thankfully Firebox are STILL giving Don't Panic readers money off their purchases with code DONTPANIC10. So I can go and live out my fantasy shopping and stock up on a variety of cute, kitsch and collectable products from foody things like a Giant Gummy Skull?! And English Worm Gin (yes, actual worm) and my personal fave (which I will be buying) ANIMAL EGG MOLDS! Honestly, you've got to see this.
They also have techy bits, like portable phone chargers and selfie remotes - the selfie stick is so passe.
And just tones of other tomfoolery to make your life a little bit more fun.
So please, give someone the present they've always wanted this year with Firebox.com and code DONTPANIC10. I can assure you there's something for everyone.
