Union Jack Flags to Make You Smile
A key element of British gifts is the Union Jack flag. I think my current fascination with Union Jacks came at the last Coldplay Concert that I went to where Chris Martin and his group wore jackets with Union Jack flags. (See image left.) Iím not suggesting you give up the Stars & Stripes but why not make a little room for British gifts? We've got Union Jacks for your walls, your sofa, couch, bed, your blackberry, your iphone, your cufflink drawer and more. It's amazing how wonderful the Union Jack flag graphic looks on so many British gifts.
Union Jacks are ubiquitous in England of course but the British are coming here too. A Union Jack flag is not cause for treason in the USA anymore. In fact people love British gifts. Now that we have our independence, maybe itís time we make up with the ďMother Country.Ē
Itís a global world we live in. The world is flat but our British gifts are anything but. Union Jack flags wrap around our mugs imported from the UK for example. Now you can really feel British when you sip your cuppa tea.
I found our Union Jack flag cushions and pillows on a tour thru Selfridges in London. There were stacks and stacks of them. I decided to imported them across the pond here to the US from the vendor. Since then, I have seen them in all sorts of magazines, and in lovely summer houses on Cape Cod. In fact, the spotting of the Union Jack pillows has become a sport of mine. It would be better if I could just relax and enjoy a pillow but what fun would that be?
Then there are our Union Jack flag doormats. What a great way to wave a flag outside a home without needing a flagpole. And the doormats also offer the Keep Calm and Carry On message, a lovely doormat greeting.
Our Union Jack flag cufflinks are excellent British gifs for a man or a woman who appreciates British style. And these days, with Stella McCartney turning up even at H & M, a lot of people do appreciate it.
We import our Union Jack flag blackberry and iphone covers from Canada. Apparently the flag is all the rage there too. Our Union Jack cell phone covers are a cool way to dress up and differentiate your phone. British gifts are fun!
