Still looking for gift inspiration? Well, you could have a look at the Wedgies, which are handmade pop culture doorstops.
And that’s pretty much it. If you find the right design (and there are many), you could find the ideal novelty gift. Just as long as the recipient needs the occasional door wedging open.
And let’s be honest, many of us do. Whether that’s to let some air in or to keep a door open while we move things from room to room. Practically assured with this one.
And they will love the designs, with each one handmade and hand-painted with plenty of detail. Too good to shove under a door, in truth.
Oh yes, you are doing some good too. Each one is made of quality sustainable Alstonia wood, with designs produced as part of an incentive scheme based in Sri Lanka and specifically in rural areas of the country. This allows people in rural communities the convenience of earning an income whilst going about their daily routines.
Artists, musicians, footballers, politicians…there are plenty to choose from and plenty of unashamedly retro designs to pick out too.
So let’s pick out a few from the range, kicking off with the gaggle at the top of the page, which is the 90s pack – Keith, Liam and Kurt. You can buy all three for £56. But you can buy these and others individually too.
Likewise, there’s the opportunity to buy all of The Beatles together too for £74. Or you can pick out your favourite from the Fab Four.
Further down the page, you can see Frank Sidebottom (£20), Bowie and Prince (£38 for the pair), Keith Haring (£20), and Bjork (£20). Not that they have those exact names, but you get the idea.
Many more, too and all are available to browse on the Wedgie website.
