No little leaflet with instructions Cyclops?

Some kind of game? Like croquet only not?

Actually just realised they are individual pieces so that is the all in one part blown away isn't it.

I think they are to hold up long stemmed plants, so they stick in the ground and you make sure the stem is in the hooky bit.

Are they for holding wine glasses off the ground if you're having a picnic?

CyclopsBee Thu 25-Dec-14 11:28:06

These answers are making us laugh! No idea who is right, mum is too scared to ask the giver!
We are clueless

Shit sorry saw the price on the link. Don't scroll down too far.

Hoorah, camping glass holders, she's never been camping in her lifegrin

Usernamegone Thu 25-Dec-14 16:51:08

I thought they were to dry Wellington boots on after wearing them out in the wet!

corgiology Thu 25-Dec-14 19:03:23

Use them as whatever they will be useful for. Be inventive smile

No point in wasting the gift. May as well get some use out of it smile

So if that is kitchen roll holder then sorted.

Toilet roll storage.

Why on earth would you need to keep a wine glass off the floor while camping? It's not like the base touching the ground is the same as drinking the wine from a puddle!

StrattersThePreciousSnowflake Thu 25-Dec-14 19:59:46

Out on a limb here splodgeses, as I don't go camping, but to stop the glasses falling over

TipsyMcStaggers Thu 25-Dec-14 20:05:53

Wrap them back up and re gift them next year grin

flatbellyfella Thu 25-Dec-14 20:07:14

Or to stop insects climbing up the glass.

Why on earth would you need to keep a wine glass off the floor while camping?

Less likely to blow over if it's windy.

diddlediddledumpling Thu 25-Dec-14 21:24:13

I've seem them in catalogues as picnic or just outdoor eating accessories, rather than camping. If you're the kind that drinks out of a proper wine glass when camping, then you'd probably have a wee table to put it on too.

Thanks, I don't drink wine and when we have been camping in the past, I put my drinks on the table, floor, wherever really but then orange squash is not nearly as valued as wine by most
The idea about the insects made me chuckle, because if they can climb a glass stem, they can climb a wine glass holder too grin
