A quick update today. Are you getting up to speed with Christmas ? I am getting there, just about !
Although stocking fillers are my favourite thing to do, they always ends up being the last to sort out so if you’re in the same boat or need some last minute extra gifts – I have pulled together some colourful items that I think make great little gifts. They’re fun and functional and fittable ( I think I just made that word up .. ) in a nice big sock. Hope you like them …
1. The scent of Jasmin is heavenly as far as I’m concerned. Do you like to too ? Designers Guild have these soaps in a pretty box. They’re £14. 2. We recently did an Alice in Wonderland play here for charity and it reminded me of how brilliant and mad the book and films are – and also how many people love the story. This Mad Hatter tea towel is by Mrs Moore Vintage Store and it’s £12. 3. Being a huge fan of Ban.do – this tote bag is naturally going to be in the list ! Pink and stripes, yes please. £18 from Birchbox. 4. Amara have a stunning range of gifts – like this dinner plate ( with others to form a set available ) by Christian Lacroix at £48. 5. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a candle or two. Although this is isn’t a festive scent as such, lavender is a lovely gentle alternative – and the motto on the front is perfect. By Rice DK – £17.99. 6. I was at a poetry festival recently and one of the speakers said ” there’s nothing like a new notebook ” .. I totally agree. Full of possibilities. Love the pastel shades of this one by Trouva. £10. 7. A gift for a patient friend who likes to grow their herbs ? Love that it comes in a teacup. This ‘ grow your own basil ‘ is from Not on the Highstreet and is £9. 8. What a lovely, lovely thing. Marimekko print pencils in a box. Amara £9.99. 9. Love this brand. Little Moose Gram. You might already know that I’m obsessed with flamingoes. So, this necklace was an obvious choice. It’s £39.95. Hint hint, husband ! 10. Everyone loves a yummy hand cream don’t they ? Look at the amazing packaging too … another company that I am rather obsessed with – Kiehl’s at SPACE NK. £17.50.
Here are some treats that I know my girls would like, so maybe they will appeal to you and yours too ?
1. For the older ones, obviously. Not for the littles. Some bright bubble gum balls from Liberty London. £6.95. 2. These little animal lights always go down well. My daughters love them. This Squirrel Night Light is from White Mint. £5. 3. Wow ! Such a good idea – Kids Nail Polish from Not on the Highstreet. It can be washed off with soap and has no solvents, phthalates, bisphenol A and is perfume free. £8.50. 4. I think this mug would appeal to boys and girls of all ages. Fill it with sweets sweets maybe ? From Scion – £10. 5. Make your own Super Hero Mask from Not on the Highstreet. £6.95. 6. A beautiful mobile for babas from Leif. Although they are in the States so you will have to get your skates on if you fancy buying one. $70. 7. How can you not love Smiggle ? They’re popping up everywhere and full of cute things. The Yums pencils are £2 each and you can change the erasers. 8. Oh look, how did another flamingo themed item make it in to the list ? ;) One of lots of different birds or animal hangers by Capventure at Forma. £3.50. 9. Well, I wasn’t going to write a post without some elf ears, was I ? Enough said. Paperchase. £7.50. 10. Cannot get enough of Meri Meri. They rock. Cupcake cases and birds – a winning combination. These are £10 for the set.
So, that’s my mini round up. There will of course, also be chocolate coins and satsumas. It’s the law. ;)
