In case you hadn’t noticed, there’s some kind of big football competition starting today…
And as a result, it seems you can’t move for World Cup-themed stuff in the shops at the moment. However most of it is either pretty tacky or unlikely to have a place in your heart/home for much longer than the four weeks of the tournament.
I’m not a huge footie fan, but I do live with two boys (one big, one small) who are. So, in the spirit of fair play and all that, here’s my pick of the best football-inspired bounty out there.
Top: Table football game £12 Matalan
Below: Football line lights £10 Next; Subbuteo bottle opener £11.95 Red5.co.uk (if you’re quick, you can get 10% off everything at Red5 by using discount code RED5WC14 at the online checkout before midnight tomorrow, 13th June)
Below: Football pitch rug £9 Asda
Below: Finally, I love these cute kids t-shirts for ages 3-16 (£80£13) from Next. Surprisingly tasteful, choose from England, USA, Australia, Netherlands, Italy, Brazil or Spain. I want one of the blue Italy versions in adult size!
