Out of all my friends I only have one who never even enters her kitchen. All the rest make frequent use of it. And even those (or perhaps especially those) who aren’t mad keen foodies can make use of a spatula….

If you can combine then a spatula with a specific personal connection then you have the perfect present! So, I am considering my Christmas shopping. I have a Greek friend, an American friend, and a friend that plays the cello… pretty random you might think. But I head to Tim Foxall and all is solved!

I bought a beautiful spatula in the shape of the Statue of Liberty, another depicting Aphrodite, and a third a replica of a cello. Hey Presto! Problem solved.
