A rainy day gift

Ever thought of an umbrella as a gift?  Admittedly, it’s not exactly a typical gift…but therein lies its value: it has a point of difference.

Of course, not just any old brolly will do – that really would be dull.  But there are some gorgeous umbrellas, made delightful by images of hummingbirds, butterflies, flowers, Monet waterlilies and so forth, that would brighten up anybody’s rainy day.  Like these ones from Galleria Enterprises, and available at many good gift stores.  Or, in my case, the gift area of my local garden centre.  (Which is why I’m a fan of shopping at garden centres – they often have the most unexpected things.)

Another idea is a mini or micro umbrella, for tucking away in a handbag, briefcase or pocket.  Some of them are impossibly small and light, and they really do work very well.  There are also cute umbrellas for kids too.

If you live in a rainy climate, umbrellas can make very good gifts indeed.  And, of course, one can never have too many of them, as they’re handy to keep in the front porch, back porch, car, workplace, etc.
