What is a fairy hobmother anyways?

I’ve seen posts all around the web for a few years now with bloggers saying they got a visit from the Fairy Hobmother who gave them a gift and then also gifted someone who commented on their post. I thought it was cool and commented on some, hoping for a visit.

I was ecstatic a few days ago when the Fairy Hobmother finally sent me a message but then I was left wondering, why Fairy Hobmother? I mean I know it’s a play on Fairy Godmother but the Fairy Hobmother originates from an online store called Appliances Online and I had no idea what a Hob was or if it had anything to do with appliances.

So, since I’m a knowledge seeker, I looked it up.

Apparently the word hob can mean lots of things such as a household spirit, a generic term for a dwarf-like or elf-like magical creature, a male ferret and even the top cooking surface on a stove. Hey wait a minute, maybe that’s why the name was chosen!

Would YOU like a visit from the Fairy Hobmother? If you have a blog, he might just visit you, but only if you comment on this post.
