One Direction – Did you know….?

One Direction

Every decade has had its boybands.  In the 60's The Beatles and The Rolling Stones were favourites, the 70's gave way to The Jackson Five and The Osmonds.  Duran Duran and Wham battled it out in the 80's and the 90's and 00's saw the rise of New Kids on the Block, Take That, East 17, Westlife and Boyzone.

More recently, we have had JLS who were the first group to make it big on the back of X Factor, but without a doubt the boys of One Direction have hit the heights and gained a legion of fans.

To celebrate the launch of our One Direction section Loadsagifts have put together some popular and little known facts about the band.

Madonna – Love or loathe her?

As I was driving to work this morning I listened to a Madonna megamix on an old CD.  I was reminded of how good her early music was and when she was still original and fresh.

I was an 80's kid who listened to the likes of Michael Jackson, Prince and old school R&B.  Not for me were Wham and Duran Duran (although I now admit to liking their music!).  I wanted to be different, not follow the crowd and Madonna represented just that.  Never before had we seen a female artist breaking boundaries and doing things her way.  Her iconic perfomance on MTV when she introduced Like a Virgin was breathtaking.  I was hooked. 

My friends and I would sing her songs at school, we studied her Like a Virgin Tour and mimicked the dancing, bought the LP's, wore the T Shirt, you know the sort of thing.

Gemstones

Gemstones have long been considered a natural beauty and are becoming more and more fashionable with todays consumers. Long before they were considered jewellery they were associated with great spiritual meaning as well as being used for natural healing and detailing which month you were born.

Gemstones are thought to be crystallised minerals and have been around for millions of years.  The rarity of a particular stone makes it more precious than another. 

Stones have always played an important part in our culture and history, think Stonehenge and some of the many artifacts on show in various museums across the world.  It is no wonder that stones and gemstones are seen as "the bones of Mother Earth".

Here are some of the more popular gemstones with their meanings.
