    Spring Freshness

    Spring Freshness

    Now that April has arrived and Easter celebrations have commenced, it's finally looking like Spring might actually be here. This year feels particularly special as that message of new beginnings seems to be one that rings true for all of us. Brighter times lay ahead and Spring is a hopeful reminder of that.

    So in celebration of the new season, we've chosen some glorious goodies that we think captures all things Spring. From Tulip ranges by Emma Bridgewater, to fun Jellycat characters and even a candle to get your home smelling like fresh flowers.

    A famous flower of Springtime is a Tulip, and the new Emma Bridgewater goodies in this design are simply lovely. Serve a spring salad in the gorgeous bowl, or use the jam jar for some very pretty storage, or even as a vase for some real tulips to add some colour to your home. We also love the Gisela Graham mini mugs & jugs in their Spring designs, they're simply yet so pretty.

    Jellycat probably has a toy for all four seasons, so their characters need a mention here. Whether you stick to the tulip theme or go for something more along the lines of Easter such as a lamb or chick, they'll bring an extra dash of joy to your home that's for sure.

     

    Get yourself smelling like Spring with one of the English Soap Company's glorious scents. Bluebells are another iconic spring flower, and the bluebell & jasmine soap is always a popular one here in store. Or perhaps stick to the daffodil theme and choose the narcissus & lime range for a fresh, zingy scent.

    Whilst we're on the topic of scents, you can give your home a refresh too by making it smell like a spring meadow in the sun. St Evals Spring Flower collection is the obvious choice here, but there's plenty of sweet and floral scents from Country Candles, plus these new Gisela Graham candles will also add a touch of colour and pattern if you like your candles to look the part as well.

     

    There you have it! With these fabulous bits your home will be ready for the new season in no time, forget the spring clean! Now all you need is some fresh daffodils and a supply of hot cross buns to see you through to summer and good times.

    The Mothers Day Gift Guide

    The Mothers Day Gift Guide

    Yes, we know, it seems a little early to be talking about Mothers day just yet when Valentine's day has only just passed. But March is drawing ever closer which means the special mum day will be creeping up on us in no time as it's a little earlier this year - Sunday 14th to be precise!

    So, for those of you who like to get organised early, or simply have a bit of extra online shopping time at the moment, we thought we'd give you some inspiration for what you could get the mother figure in your life.

    If in doubt, go for a mug

    Emma Bridgwater is a brand much loved by mums all over. So if you're not sure what to get your mum, you can never go wrong with one of their gorgeous mugs. Because who doesn't love a lovely new one to hold their hot drink of choice? Pair it with one of the brands cards to really bring the gift together for a true EB fan.

    Candles

    Whilst we're all stuck at home a lot more than normal times these days, candles are somewhat of a perfect gift we think. It's likely that it's going to get used and therefore appreciated more than perhaps it would usually, so giving a gift of a gloriously smelling home might just be an ideal one this year. Choose from Country Candles for cute tins, St Eval for natural, Earthy scents or Gisela Graham for candles with a bit of fun.

    Sublime Smellies

    Is there a better gift for a mum than a little bit of a pamper? Whether it's hand cream to soothe dry hands from constant washing, or a bar of luxury soap to enjoy in the shower, English Soap Company offer some goodies that will have your mum or mother figure feeling spoilt rotten.

    East of India

    Sometimes it's hard to put into words how much your mum might mean to you. So make it a little easier for yourself by letting East of India do the work! If you know Daisy Park well, you will have heard us speak about this brand countless times when it comes to gifts. They really have the perfect words for almost every occasion and they can add just the right amount of meaning, we love them.

    Don't forget a card!

    The final piece of the puzzle, the bit that brings the gift together; the card. A beautiful card can be just as enjoyable to open as a gift, in our opinion. So it's a good job we've got plenty of gorgeous cards for you to give this Mothers day. From Emma Bridgewater to Molly Mae, humour to heartfelt, there's a great selection for you to write your thanks and send your love in, even if it is just through the post this year.
