eBay Christmas Gifts Random Edition!

I’m not really good at coming up with titles for my posts, have you noticed? But really, this is a random edition of the eBay Christmas posts. It’s the odds and ends that didn’t fit anywhere else, so I just put them together.

Let’s see what we have, shall we?

eBay_random.jpgA mish-mash of wonderful things

Eyeshadow palette, 5.45 GBP
Marine watch, 0.99 GBP
Cow egg cup, 4.86 GBP
Fox bag, 8.68 GBP
Tree pillowcase, 3.85 GBP
Book storage, 3.95 GBP
Christmas cookie jar, 2.59 GBP
Journal, 3.21 GBP
Love picture frame, 1.35 GBP

The cookie jar makes for an excellent homemade gift if you know how to bake Christmas cookies (which I sadly don’t). The tree pillow comes in four different designs, one for each season, but this one is my personal favorite. The “secret” book storage is a neat little addition to a living room (for keys, pills, etc.) while the love frame goes for pretty much anyone on your wish list, as long as you have a picture to go in it.

I don’t wear watches at all but I would definitely buy this one, I just love it. And the price is so low that I think it would make for a great extra gift for a sister or a friend. My personal favorites are the journals, however – I think those would be a gift for myself 😉

I hope you’ve gotten some inspiration from these posts. I would love to hear if you’ve bought any of this! (:

eBay – Christmas Gifts Fandom Edition!

As promised, here are some more gift ideas from eBay. This round is fandom related and definitely big hits for the people who belong to these fandoms (such as myself, for instance – feel free to buy me all of this, someone 😉 )

eBay_Fandom.jpgFandoms – unite!

Harry Potter Dumbledore’s Wand, 3.99 GBP
Tardis mug, 9.89 GBP
Soda lip balms, 12.00 GBP
Superman hoodie, 3.99 GBP
Doctor Who egg cups, 19.99 GBP
Mickey Mouse hoodie, 5.44 GBP
Batman pillowcase, 6.99 GBP
Doctor Who bowtie hair clips, 8.85 GBP
Superman pillowcase, 6.99 GBP

Again, these are all things I’d like to own myself, or someone I know would like to have. The Tardis mug comes in two variations with the Tardis, as well as one with a Dalek and one with a Cyberman. I’ve ordered one of those and they are excellent quality. The wands also come in different types if anyone wants to collect more of them (again, hello!) and I think they Batman/Superman pillowcases are great for the living room – they are extremely cool but not childish in any way. Though I much prefer the pillowcases from last post.

Is there anything here you would buy? I can’t decide which one I would like the most!

eBay – Christmas Gifts Kids Edition!

It’s Christmas! Okay, okay, it’s not – yet. And I promise, I’m not one of those crazy people who start decorating in the middle of August. I am, however, one of those crazy people who look for gifts all year long because it’s much cheaper that way – buying Christmas gifts during the January sale is not a bad idea. It’s also not a bad idea to buy some of your gifts from eBay. The only problem with eBay is that you can’t wait until last minute, so 6 weeks before Christmas is the very least I’d suggest buying gifts from the Asian sellers on eBay – the ones from the US and UK usually ship much faster.

So, what did I find? Well, I won’t show you any of the things I ended up buying (so I don’t ruin the surprises) but I will show you some of the things I considered. This post it’s all about the kids!

eBay_Kids.jpgApparently I love Mickey so much I had to include him twice 😉

Mickey Mouse mug, 12.90 GBP
Owl clock, 2.95 GPB
Mickey Mouse figurine, 4.40 GBP
EVA Foam Bricks, 6.62 GBP
Iron Man pillow case, 4.59 GBP
Funky fridge magnets, 0.54 GBP
Animal learning cards, 2.95 GBP
Kitchen play set, 4.46 GBP

I like all of these things for various reasons. I looove Disney, especially Mickey Mouse, so those gifts can actually be good for adults, too 😉 The Mickey figurine is actually a collect-them-all with a lot of Disney figurines – if you notice, the black thing behind him is one of those movie reels, and when you combine them, you have an entire move reel from the first movie to some of the newest!

The Iron Man pillow case comes in Spiderman and Batman, too, so it’s really neat for any superhero-crazy kid’s room. Or, in our case, or living room… The foam bricks I’ve ordered today, as a last minute thing, because he’s just started showing interest in building blocks.

Mom builds – he destroys and laughs. That’s how it works.

Have you bought gifts yet? (:

eBay Clutch Edition!

I’ve been using eBay a lot these days, having to buy advent calendar gifts and Christmas gifts for four people (That’s 96 advent calendar gifts, people! They’re not all from eBay though ;)) which of course means I’ve also found some things I’d personally like to own.

This post it’s all about clutches (or wallets, handbags, whatever you wish to call them) since my wallet is 100 years old and not very useful when you have 300 club member cards to everything from Matas to Fætter BR.

Screen Shot 10-28-14 at 08.15 PMFrom the top left:

Red & Black clutch, 5.68 GBP (54 kr) for the middle-sized, 6.38 GBP (60 kr) for the longer.

Blue Sequenced clutch & Red Sequenced clutch, 1.26 GBP (12 kr)

Moustache wallet, 2.76 GBP (26 kr)

Red clutch, 3.66 GBP (34,5 kr)

Striped colored clutch, 1.59 GBP (15 kr)

I like the all (of course) but I think my favorites are the tree on the right – red, moustache and striped. Even if I bought all of them, it would only be around 53 kr, which I think is completely doable.

Which ones are your favorites? Would you buy any of these? (:

eBay Goodies – A dress, some brushes and some beads

I’m struggling a little with not buying makeup but I know I don’t need anymore right now, so it’s fine. The only thing I know I’ll definitely have to buy before September is foundation because I’m running out.

Instead, I decided to see if they had any fun stuff on eBay. I’m getting through my Wreck This Journal and figured I could use some more beads and stuff.

eBay dress makeup brushes beads

So excited!

The dress is really lovely and for the price of 46 kr, I decided to take the chance – usually I’m not to keen on buying clothes on sites like eBay but there’s a first for everything.

The striped heart beads cost me 0.06 punds each (0,5 kr) and I bought three. I hope the seller is smart enough to send them together and not a single bead in each pack 😛

The sparkly heart beads cost me 8 kr for a pack of 26 pieces and I got a few other different type of beads as well (:

The makeup brush set is a lovely blue-turquoise color and it costs 77 kr, which I think is really good for 12 brushes.

Some of these were “buy now” items, some of them were auctions, but there’s plenty of similar things all over eBay if you’re looking to get something for yourself. I’m really looking forward to the brushes because I have very few brushes right now and it’s annoying to have to wash them constantly.

 What do you think? What eBay goodies have you bought lately?
