One way that you know it’s Christmas is when the ridiculous perfume ads appear on TV.

Ok, so the woodie in the household usually carries with them a faint whiff of Danish oil, with perhaps an underlying hint of shellac, but don’t despair!

Your present buying problems could be solved, because the Rowden Elves have been busy in the workshop preparing some hand made, exclusive gizmos of a quality that you will not find anywhere else.

Visit the shop to see the delights we have in store! Each item comes beautifully boxed, just wrap, add a gift tag and bask in the glory!

(Beats novelty socks!)
