This weeks edition of my gift guide series is a slightly nerdy one and features a lot of badges. I do like to channel my inner geek now and again and have forever lusted after a shiny ‘prefect’ badge. This was probably because I was a child who demonstrated such bad behaviour I’d never get to have been a prefect at school. I was also never in the girl guides and kind of wish I was a boy so I could be in the scouts. With shows like The Big Bang Theory and zombie based series like The Walking Dead, badges and buttons can be the pretty little stocking fillers and a ‘safe’ gift to buy if you’re not quite sure what will be suitable. Looking on sites like Etsy
you can get soooo many cult TV and film items which are quite often pretty unique, I mean Twin Peaks pencils
If you don’t find any badges
suitable you could always have your own button badges
made online and look at having them delivered by a service like Delivery Quote Compare
. With Royal Mail demonstrated such erratic delivery service and time at the moment it really puts me off selling anything via ebay, so finding other companies which can provide a better and more often than not *cheaper* service is definitely worth looking in to. Delivery Quote Compare for example means that you can list your items and companies will bid and give you the cheapest quote. That way you know you always get the most reliable service, and with so many people playing silly beggers pretending they haven’t received items on eBay I’d much prefer to go through a private courier nowadays!
