Note to mum, please don’t point this post out to you-know-who as he’s getting it for Christmas.
You know when you see the very thing – the gift that you know is ideal? Yup that thing.
Well I had that experience the other day.
The lovely folk at Handpicked Collection asked if I’d like to test drive their Christmas shopping experience and blog about it. Yes please, I said.
Then I sat down to see what there was and quickly spotted this wonderful thing. Not only has it got a great name – the bouffadou – but it’s a piece of genius.
It’s a poker you can blow through to help get the fire started. Isn’t that clever?
If you have ever given yourself a stiff neck and sore knees as you tried to coax some flames from a disinterested hearth, you will instantly see the benefit.
Not only that, but I know exactly the person to give it to. Someone who always takes charge of the fire and who enjoys having the right tool for every job.
Happy shopping and good luck in finding the perfect Christmas gifts.
PS Bouffadou is an actual thing – a French thing used for getting fires going for centuries.
