There is not a lot you buy someone for around a tenner these days, but this is a lovely unusual gift for £9 (or £12 with personalisation). It's different, not something I've seen before and would suit many people. I have bought for 5 people in total and they have all loved it. Unfortunately no one has yet bought one back for me ....!
One stunning little glass test tube vase that looks gorgeous in any window and makes a perfect little gift for someone special on their birthday.
This cute little vase is a great way to show off your flowers with a twist. These are genuine test tubes, made in England using pyrex glass; they hang on suede fabric in your choice of colour. Each vase can have a little brass heart attached, which can be hand-stamped with your choice of letters, such as 'MUM' or 'T&S' or simply a single initial.
Rather than getting the usual bunch of flowers as a gift, instead you could give a single flower paired with this tiny boxed vase. This can then be filled all year round with sprigs or flowers from the garden, as it only needs something small to look great. Your test tube vase will also come with a small suction cup with silver-coloured hook - it can then be attached to any window and moved around easily. The vase comes in a smooth white gift box.
To really accentuate the chemistry element of this test tube vase, you could add one of our periodic table greeting cards; there are lots to choose from in the Newton and the Apple store.
MADE FROM: The vase is a genuine scientific test tube that says 'PYREX ENGLAND' in small white letters at the top. The test tube is held using a handcrafted wire ring, and silver pieces are used to connect this to a colourful string of suede in your choice of length and colour.
DIMENSIONS: Test tubes are 10 cm long and 1 cm wide. Hanging length varies depending on your chosen stringing length.
GIFT WRAPPING: This item comes in a small eco-cotton bag with Newton and the Apple tag.
