Top 5 Bins to Gift This Christmas
What’s on your Christmas list this year? Have you asked for the latest gadget or a new piece of jewellery?
But what would happen if you came downstairs on Christmas morning, only to find that someone had given you a bin as a gift? (we mean after you stopped cursing!)
We’re sure that as gifts go, you’d rather have the iPhone or the jewellery, but a bin is actually a pretty good gift (hear us out!)
Why a bin makes the perfect gift
Think about it. While we all love an indulgent gift, practical ones are great too. A bin is something useful that will make your life a whole lot easier. Want to recycle more? Want to rid your rooms of clutter? Want a stylish addition to your kitchen or office? A bin can be all this and more. Bins are also very durable so they’ll be around long after all your Christmas chocs have been eaten.
Top 5 bins to gift this Christmas
So with that in mind, gift a bin to the person in your life who has everything. We guarantee they’ll be surprised on Christmas morning (though we can’t guarantee pleasantly!)

You can’t have a bin without the accessories
If you fear your loved one will fail to see the funny side when they wake up on Christmas morning and find out they’ve been gifted a bin, why not sweeten the deal by giving them these fun accessories too?
findmeagift.com have Christmas Pudding Bin Bags that put the fun back into Christmas garbage. Even when you have to tear yourself away from the TV or game of Twister to take the rubbish out, you’ll hopefully do it with a smile and give other people a smile when they see these novelty bags too. The bonus is, you don’t really have to use them for bin bags if you don’t want to. They look like so much fun, they can double as a novelty Santa sack as well (just fill it with some more presents in case the recipient doesn’t take too kindly to the bin gesture!)
What’s even better, these bags are biodegradable, so you can sleep easy knowing that you’ve given a sustainable and incredibly fun gift.
A bin is definitely not a traditional Christmas gift but it is useful, built to last, and makes life easier in its own way. That ticks a lot of boxes in our book!
