The other week, I received the most gorgeous gift in the post - a customised, heart shaped metallic silver umbrella - from Klair at Love Umbrellas. Now I've followed Klair for a while on Twitter and Facebook and marvelled at the amazing umbrellas she creates for special occasions, mostly weddings. But I'd not realised that you could have one of her fabulous creations to use every day.
So I picked a particularly rubbish day to do a few photos showing off the umbrella...snow and gales. And what I immediately noticed about this umbrella is that it's not a delicate thing at all - it was well able to cope with the strong easterly wind that tried to blow us both away (they've even been weather tested by ITV's This Morning!)
Klair customises these umbrellas herself and can work to one of her many creative designs on the website/Facebook albums or do something special just for you - as she's done with this - adding colour and detail to a plain heart shaped umbrella.
I've had a compliment every time I've used it since it arrived (lots of times). I think the heart shape alone makes people smile and then the buttons are a beautiful bonus.

I think one of these umbrellas would make an amazing present for a friend or indeed a teacher. They are so unique yet really practical. Here are some of my other favourites from Klair's site..
You can find out more and contact Klair via the Love Umbrellas Facebook Page. I know she'd love some new likes on there and that way, you will have access to her regular flash sales and competitions.
