    Christmas Has Arrived!

    Christmas Has Arrived!

    With October coming into it's last week, it's nearing the time when we pack away the pumpkins and treat buckets and get the tree and decorations out. We can practically hear the sleigh bells and festive songs chiming in the distance already...

    So whilst it might still be a bit early, we just couldn't resist showing you some of the goodies we've been getting into the shop already. We've had cards and advent calendars in for a while, as well as the first wave of decorations and the always highly-anticipated Emma Bridgewater Christmas collection.

     

    From the wonderfully quirky Shoeless Joe decorations that are always unique, to much more traditional baubles from Gisela Graham, there's some gorgeous decorations this year. Here's a few of our favourites so far, including the glass rainbow, which flew out last Christmas as a result of the renewed symbolism it held throughout the height of the pandemic.

    As we already said, the Emma Bridgewater Christmas collections are always a big deal every year. This years featured Christmas puddings and robins and traditional toys galore. It's all simply gorgeous and would certainly make your Christmas table look like a winner on the big day.

    Last year we had the Jellycat Christmas range for the first time and people went a little bit crazy for it, understandably. This year has been much the same, with Gingerbread Fred selling out within days of us getting him in! But luckily there are plenty of other fabulous characters who are both hilarious and adorable and we simply love them all.

    Sending cards is such an underrated part of Christmas, don't you think? we love it, and we encourage everyone to do it if they can, even if it's just a few to your nearest and dearest. It's a simple way of showing your loved ones some festive cheer.

    These are just a few of our favourite pieces from our all-things-Christmas ranges so far. There's so much more available online and in the shop, including more decorations, advent calendars, and everything you need to wrap your gifts too. So stay tuned for more Christmas content, and in the meantime see it all for yourself on our website or by popping in to say hello to us in the shop!

     

    Thinking of You Week

    Thinking of You Week

    Today is the last day of what has been Thinking of You Week 2021. Started by the Greetings Card Association, the aim of the week is to encourage everyone to simply spread some love and positivity simply through writing a card.

    Greetings cards are part of what makes us here at Daisy Park, so we love getting involved in this campaign every year. Sometimes they get overlooked, but a cute card with a handwritten, sentimental message inside is usually more than enough to make someone's day. So if you feel inspired, here's a few of our favourite cards and other bits that you can deliver to someone special, or pop in the post to a loved one across the miles.

    If you feel like popping a little something else into the card, an East of India trinket is the perfect little keepsake gift to give an extra boost of sentiment and all round positivity. The hanging hearts are flat and not too big so can slot into cards quite neatly, plus there's a huge variety of phrases on them to suit everyone.

    Sometimes it's nice to send someone some love without a real reason. No birthday or other event, just a reminder of how special they are to you. Take this, and Thinking of You Week in general, as your reminder to give it a go. Find a gorgeously designed card, maybe even a sweet trinket, and write a friend, family member or whoever it might be, a nice little note today. You're welcome!

    What's New at Daisy Park

    What's New at Daisy Park

    Almost every week at Daisy Park there are boxes of goodies in all shapes and sizes arriving into store. It's always exciting when we get one containing new goodies because it feels a little bit like receiving a present, we love it.

    Recently we've had some scrumptious new bits and bobs trickling in and we like to keep our customers in the loop, so we thought we'd introduce you to some of them. For example, there's been some gorgeous candle trays from Pip Studio arrive, which we think would complete a dinner table perfectly by adding a touch of sophistication. Pair them with the beautifully grand candle stick holders we already have, and your table spread will be looking fit for a queen.

    Also in the home décor department is a delivery of Austin Sloan that's recently come in, with lots of signs both new and old. Here are a few of our favourites, including this Handwashing one because it's definitely been an important one this past year or so!

    We LOVE stationery here at Daisy Park. Particularly the kind of product that makes you realise you didn't know you needed it until you saw it, at which point, you simply must have it, of course. Password books are one of these products for us, so these fabulous new mini ones from a fellow small business are new favourites here. If you're forever having to click on the 'forgot password' button then these might just be a life saver for you. They'd also make great stocking filler gifts but we'll try not to talk about that time of year just yet...

    Jellycat toys never fail to provoke laughter when customers pass them in the shop. We love them too, so getting new little characters in every so often is always a joy. Some new friends in the gang include the Fabulous Fruit Blueberry, Amusable Broccoli, some adorable little backpacks, and a Bewitching Cat which would look fab next to a pumpkin this Halloween.

     

    We're always getting new cards in, to the point where we've practically got them coming out of our ears. Paper Salad are a recent new favourite of ours due to their brightly coloured, fun cards that catch the eye immediately, so we've been gradually getting more in over time. We also have some beautiful new cards from Artfile, with countryside settings on or 1920's inspired luxurious designs, there's even some fab pop-up cards.

    All of these lovely goodies are just some of our current new favourites in Daisy Park right now. But we've got plenty more coming over the next month or so, with a seasonal change pending and thus a whole new period of festivities to look forward to. This of course means lots of big new launches from the likes of Emma Bridgewater, Gisela Graham, Jellycat and more, so stay tuned for these newbies. You can keep up to date on what we've got coming here on the blog, by signing up to our newsletters, or by following us on Facebook or Instagram where we're always posting about our antics!

    New Term New Goodies

    New Term New Goodies

    As the month of August seems to be hurtling by, we're sure there's lots of parents out there starting to breathe a tiny sigh of relief. Whether it's just starting school, or taking a big leap to university for the first time, a new term will soon be starting and children young and old all over the country will be back to education. This might be exciting for your children, or perhaps very daunting, but however they might be feeling, one thing's for sure: there's plenty to get organised.

    Fear not! Maybe we can help with some of these gorgeous goodies, including backpacks, lunch bags, stationery and even some good luck cards for the older children heading off to uni for the first time. Before you know it, the new academic year will feel easy peasy to take on.

    Starting with the younger kids, we've got plenty of goodies to get them ready. From lovely backpacks, bottles and lunch bags from Frugi (which can be bought on their own but also look great as a set), to delicious stationery from If & Bookaroo or Djeco. Take the If Children's reading timer, for example, to help them get back into homework duties. Or one of their fab brightly coloured notebooks and some Djeco glitter pens to make their note-taking a bit more fun.

    Or if they feel a bit too old for Frugi, the Eco Chic backpacks have got some lovely designs and they foldaway into neat little packages so when they're not in use they can be stored easily.

    Now for the older children, Bookaroo and Busy B are gorgeous stationery brands for them. Whether they want to organise their studying hours for the week with a weekly planner, or keep their notes and pens etc together with the Bookaroo notebook accessories. The new pouches would make for ideal uni gifts for storing books and everyday stationery bits.

    We all know one of the best ways to do well is by treating yourself well. Ensure your children are staying hydrated with a fabulous Chilly's bottle to take with them to class, or maybe a reusable coffee cup to fuel those 9am lectures.

    Finally for many of the older children, starting university can be scary. Wish them all the best with a good luck card to finish off the gift.

     

     

    Gifts for your BFF

    Gifts for your BFF

    Friends. What would we do without them, hey? Though they may not always be physically there, they are always there. And though we may not have been able to see them as much as we’d like over the past year or so, it’s made us appreciate them more than ever.

    This Friday, 30th July was national friendship day, but we think they should be celebrated and cherished every day. So we’ve put together some wonderful little goodies perfect for reminding your loved ones how much you care. If you feel like doing that, then read on for some inspiration.

    When it comes to friends and showing sentiment, East of India is the one. There’s so many lovely, meaningful quotes on various little trinkets to choose from. Whether it’s the classic hanging hearts, coasters, candles or the newest mini matchbox tokens, we’re sure you’ll find something to hit the spot.
    Getting a friend one of these fabulous little Erstwilder pins with witty, sweet messages on would make for a lovely little gift too. It’ll be something for them to pop on a bag or jacket so that they can carry it around with them all the time.
    We all love a good ‘cuppa & catch up’. If it’s a friends birthday coming up, you could gift them a gorgeous Asta Barrington tray with their favourite drink on, or perhaps just a word you both love. Then serve up your drink and treat of choice on it to add that touch more fun to your meet-ups!

    Finally, if you’re not too fussed about gifts but just want to send them something to show some love, why not just pop a card in the post. We’ve got funny ones or sweet ones but each says that you care in its own little way. Our personal current fave is the Emma bridgewater ‘soul sisters’ card.

     

    Whether it'll be a gift, card or just a text or phone call, let your nearest and dearest know how much you love them this World Friendship Day. Of course we should do it all the time anyway, but if this is a good excuse then we say take it.
