Merry Kitsch-Mass to you!
It’s Black Friday on 27 November – a day that has suddenly become a fixture on our calendars, and we’re not sure we like it – but we do know we love a good bargain, so we’ll go along with it for now!
And as you know, here at Milk Drunk HQ, we like to be a little different. Give us an ounce of Katy Perry’s sunshine, throw in some Graham Norton cynicism and a drop of Hello Kitty, and we’re well away!
So we’ve picked out our favourite kitsch gifts – anyone who follows us on instagram will know we’re partial to cuteness! Prices are correct at time of going to ‘print’ but may well be cheaper in the Black Friday sale. Get those credit cards handy…

For me please!
This will be a test to see if my husband reads my posts!

I find it comforting that Clarks Shoes were around when I was growing up and still are today for the next generation to love.

Well that’s it for now, but if I can think of anything else I’ll let you know. And if you were at a loose end as to what to get me, I don’t mind a popcorn making machine, or the new Apple iPhone watch, or a test drive in a Ferrari, or anything from Selfridges… you get the picture!
Merry Christmas one and all. x
