How is December upon us already?! November was the biggest blur with fairs, pop up shops, setting up my workshops, orders and moving house to boot. That being said I need to embrace that the festive season is here and therefore not long until gift giving. Tis’ the season for a holiday gift guide don’t you agree?! If you’re stuck for ideas and pushed for time to get your thinking cap on then hopefully these curations will help you with some much needed inspiration. All of these gorgeous items are from Etsy which means they’re all made by independent designer makers which (being one myself) I think is a great way to shop at Christmas. We all appreciate your support so much and you can rest in the knowledge that so much time and effort has gone into each item!
I’ve trawled the site to do the leg work for you and come up with three different categories. Everything is under £25 so they aren’t going to break the bank this Christmas but I’m afraid they’re all pretty much for the ladies. Unfortunately I literally have no advice for you when it comes to shopping for a guy. They’re so tricky to buy for unless they boldly tell you exactly what they want, which let’s be honest, they should do more often.
The above collection is for those of your friends, relatives or partners that take great pride in their homes and pay special attention to all the little details. I have to add that I have one of those beautiful ceramic mugs and I’m totally in love with it. Each one is slightly different as they’re all individually made and those colours are bound to suit a variety of tastes.
Forget 3 for 2 bath sets at Boots and instead send something much more beautiful and probably a lot more natural too! I’m so excited to finally have a bath in our new flat that I’m constantly adding endless bath products to my Christmas list, including these nourish bath salts scented with rose and vanilla and complete with rose petals, rose buds, calendula and heather petals. The only problem is they’re almost too pretty to use!
Finally, we all know a stationery geek right?…I’m one so I can’t mock. I pulled together this collection of fun stationery from calendars to notebooks to pens to paperclips. There’s something in there for everyone and seeing as most of these are very reasonable, they make perfect stocking fillers too.
Hopefully that’s set the gift ball rolling for you with a little help from me and a little help from Etsy. Happy shopping and is it too early for Michael Buble yet?
