Well, here we are again, that time of year when everything is crazy, expensive, a bit stressful, but quite sparkly and lovely.
However, with Christmas being quite different this year, we want to help our customers out in any way that we can. We know that finding inspiration for gift ideas can be difficult at the best of times, let alone whilst we can't get into shops right now to have a browse. So, as we try do most years anyway, we'll be providing you with the Daisy Park gift guide series over the coming weeks, to give you some ideas on what to get who, within various price ranges and tastes. Let's get started!
This week we're kickstarting with gifts for her. As a business run by women, designed mostly for women, this is kind of our speciality. So the suggestions in this blog post are just a few of some the amazing goodies we sell that would be perfect for the woman in your life. Whether it's your mum, sister, grandma, wife or friend, we think there's something for everyone.
1. Soruka Handbag/Purse
You can't go wrong with a good bag or purse, and Soruka's are simply gorgeous. Made in Spain from upcycled leather scraps, and with a zero waste policy, these products are all made with sustainability in mind. So you can give a beautiful, high quality gift, whilst knowing you're helping out the world a little bit too - ideal!
2. A Powder Scarf
Powder is a brand that's well suited to any glamorous woman in your life who loves a bit of vibrancy. And as we're in Winter now, a scarf is a perfect go-to gift. There's some beautiful designs with bright colours, exciting patterns and fabulous creatures. Plus, all Powder products come with their own gift bag, so it'll look lovely under the tree too.
3. The English Soap Company bundle
The wonderful thing about The English Soap Company is that they do a range of glorious products that can be put together to make a brilliant gift set. Their hand sanitiser would be a useful and very fitting gift for 2020, then combine it with a soap and hand cream in the same scent and you've got a wonderful little bundle.
4. An Emma Bridgewater mug
It won't be surprising to see this product on the list. But as we're all having to use our own mugs a bit more this year being stuck at home more often, we think this might make for a perfect gift. There's designs for dog lovers, flower fanatics, or just those who can't resist a pretty pattern.
5. One & Eight Jewellery
These days, some might not see jewellery as a great gift as it's such a classic go-to that's been done a lot over the years. But we disagree! Jewellery can still be a thoughtful, gorgeous gift. Especially if it's from One & Eight, who create their products with the aim of minimal impact on the planet, and take their inspiration from the coastlines of Devon and Cornwall.
6. An Asta Barrington tray
For the hostess-with-the-mostest, who loves to put on a good spread and generally present even just a cuppa with a certain level of prettiness, then a beautiful, bright tray is a fab gift idea. Asta Barringtons are ideal, and there's even a Christmas one, so they can use it as soon as they open it!
7. A Hinza bag
A practical, yet stylish gift, Hinza bags can be used for probably anything. Whether it's for shopping, storing knitting in, or even gardening bits, they can probably be used. We love the idea of a Hinza bag transformed into a hamper by filling it with lots of your loved ones favourite things - just perfect.
Another great go-to. One again, as we're all stuck indoors a bit more than usual this year, why not give the gift of a divine smelling home? Not to mention the cosiness it brings to a room. Both Country Candles and St Eval have got some amazing scents, customers often comment on how nice the shop smells and it's all down to the candles.
So there we have it, the first of our gift guides and like we said, these are just a few of the gorgeous goodies we stock. There's more beauty, more mugs, more homeware and so much more - feel free to have a browse on our website. And remember, we're always happy to gift-wrap items and write a note or card for you so do let us know. Stay tuned for the next gift guide!
