This is my favourite time of year. It’s the choosing gifts that I love the most and my friends will probably tell you that I drive them potty asking exactly what their kids would like. I really don’t like giving something that I think won’t be used or really wanted.
To save you a bit of time potentially, I’ve put together some ideas for loved ones who love a bit of colour and good design, if you fancy a look through. Some fun things for the kids too. Maybe there will be some items that are just what you are looking for. Also have a discount code for one of the stores a little later on …
I’ve had my eye on that West Elm Planter for some time. It’s a classic shape – I think it would be hard to disappoint with it. Also the vase from Studio Arhoj – these look lovely in a set. As a special gift for someone.
Do you have any rock lovers in your life ? I’m thinking this Gold Hand from Audenza would double up as not only a beacon of ‘ ROCK ‘ on a shelf but also a jewellery holder.
All of these websites here have lots of ideas – definitely worth a look.
1. Slippers – Boden 2. Pink Jumper – Oliver Bonas 3. Purse – Liberty london 4. Semi Precious Ring – Ottoman Hands 5. Grayson Perry Brooch – Lou Taylor 6. Yellow Scarf – Whistles 7. Jacket – Scamp & Dude 8. Purse with Charger – Cuckooland
Good ol’ Boden, eh ? I wear their slippers all the time. Always perfect colour combinations. In fact I’m wearing some as I write this !
A pretty pink throw on knit at this time of year is always appreciated. Oliver Bonas as always have a good selection of clothing and homeware.
This year I’ve got very much in to Ottoman Hands jewellery and constantly swoon over their pieces on instagram. It looks so decadent and it stands out in the crowd.
Being the most massive Grayson Perry fan – how could I not share this brooch by Lou Taylor ? Her website has some fantastic icons such as Iris and Vivienne Westwood, transformed in to statement jewellery. I insist you check her out :)
Also I have much appreciation for Scamp & Dude who are relatively new as a clothing brand but doing really well. A fresh take on bomber jackets and leopard print tops. I like – hope you do as well.
Must just mention this clutch bag / phone charger from Cuckooland. Two in one in a teal colour. What do you think ?
1. Bunny Racer Pyjamas – Boden 2. Pen set – Tatty Devine 3. Pom Pom Hair Bands – Topshop 4. Polaroid Pop – Polaroid 5. Rose Gold Earphones – Sudio Sweden 6. Pink Felt Board – Ginger Snap 7. Water Bottle – Roos Beach 8. Unicorn Snot – The Present Finder
Loads of colour here. Pretty sure the pen set would go down well with a wide age range. Glad to see Tatty Devine doing stationery now – they are always so distinct.
Have you heard of Sudio Sweden headphones ? they come in several colours and styles. I have a 15 % discount across their website if you’re looking for something like this. They have a broad price range so suitable for all. The code is LucyLovesYa15 which you can add at checkout.
Who doesn’t love a felt board – totally instagrammable and really fun. This one is from gift store Gingersnap. They also do orange and yellow boards. Another discount code for you here – if you add PINK at checkout for this board or any items on their site you will currently receive 33% off the price of it. Whoop !
If you haven’t heard of Roos Beach then a good opportunity to look at their store. This water bottle is just one of loads of cool things. They’re based near Newquay, Cornwall and their shop is just fab if you’re ever in the area.
That’s my little round up for now. Hope you enjoyed it. Almost time for mulled wine and gingerbread is it not ? … Almost.
