SWAG. A word with multiple meanings; a ‘thief’s chosen loot’ being one, slang for ‘low-grade pot’ being another, or perhaps the most current definition; to walk or behave in a very confident, arrogant or self-important way whilst accompanied by Pitbull on the cans and those new Adidas tubular on your feet.
There will no doubt come a point when todays youth will be content in the knowledge that swagger is of little benefit to them and they resign themselves to a life of nervous awkward shuffling, M&S knitwear and listening music their parents were into during their adolescence. I mean come on, it’s just basic evolution, no matter how much ‘swag’ you might have once possessed .
Anyway, thankfully there’s another definition that’s helped me create tenuous link to todays topic. Swag also means; ‘to travel with one’s personal belongings in a bundle’. And those creative folk over at Goodhood have done just that, throwing a selection of their finest branded belongings into these drawstring bundles just in time for chrimbo.
These Swag Bags are stuffed with anything from Wigwam socks to Goodhood Mugs, and are the perfect ‘I’ve left it until the last minute and I haven’t got a clue what to get you’ gift. Although thinking on, a soak in the tub with Pelle’s Soap Stone Crystals, Kuumba Incense stirring the nostrils, and a deep pore hydro-cleansing face mask exfoliating the skin … Get me up them stairs!
There’s a large bundle available at £50, a smaller bundle at £39, or if you’re a real tight fisted twat why not get your nearest & dearest one of their empty bags for a fiver!
Get them while you can over at Goodhood.
