    New Home Treats

    New Home Treats

    If there's one thing this pandemic has done, it's that it's made us far more aware of our surroundings. Whether it's sparked a new found love for the beauty of where we live, or provoked a realisation that perhaps it's time for somewhere new, it's probably impacted us all in some way. And with that, it would seem that many of us are making moves to new homes and new areas perhaps more than ever.

    Sound familiar to you? Well, if you know someone who has just moved house or is just about to, here is the blog post you might need to give some inspiration on what gift to get them. Throw in a card and you're good to go.

    Trays

    It can sometimes be difficult to know what homeware to get someone if perhaps they have a specific style or already have plenty of mugs, plates and dishes etc. But often a good tray can go overlooked and there are some really gorgeous ones available. Take the Asta Barrington ones for example, which are bright and beautiful and you can even choose one with their favourite drink or phrase on if you like. Or there's the Emma Bridgewater trays for those who love the classic country look, these are practical gifts too as they're a good size and sturdy.

    Tins

    Sticking to alternative homeware, tins are another brilliant option. Not only are they really useful (you can never have enough tins, right?), but again, there are also some really lovely designs out there - the Emma Bridgewater ones being an obvious choice. You can fill them with goodies to add to the gift too, for example getting some luxury crackers and popping them in a cracker tin, or filling a biscuit barrel with their favourites.

    Candles

    A common gift choice for a new home, but for a good reason. A good quality, delightful smelling candle can be a real treat as a gift. You could opt for the Country Candles New Home candle to mark the occasion, or instead go for their favourite scent, or a reed diffuser from St Eval that they can easily spruce up an empty shelf with.

    Austin Sloan Signs

    For those whose homes follow a more rustic theme and who like a bit of humour, an Austin Sloan sign will always go down well. They can be hung in any part of the house or garden, and are a great way to bring some extra personality to the place.

    East of India

    It wouldn't be a special occasion without some sentiment from East of India. If it's just a small token you want to give, or a little extra piece to add to the main present, a trinket might be perfect.

    Gift Vouchers

    If you're still feeling like they already have everything they need, or you're not sure on their style yet, sometimes a gift voucher is the best you can give. That way they can save it for when they might need it, or choose something they've had their eye on for a while.

    Cards

    And finally, you can't forget a card! The Emma Bridgewater one is one of our all time best-selling cards, so naturally had to get a mention, and it really is lovely. But there are other options too and all are gorgeous. Now your gift is complete!

    Easter Treats

    Easter Treats

    We adore Easter. It's our favourite time of year here at Daisy Park because we get to decorate the shop with bright and colourful decorations. This year, the Easter celebrations we can have must be small and outside only, but why not go all out for it? After all, we missed last years, so get those decorations out and tidy up your gardens for an egg hunt, because Easter is on and here's the inspiration you need to get ready.

    The tradition of sending a card has had a real comeback over the past year, and we feel it's become a real part of people's lives again, which we love. For those special people you won't be seeing this Easter, send them some hope and well wishes for the time of new beginnings in a gorgeous card.

    The Easter tree has become a staple decoration in many homes in recent years. And each year it seems the range of decorations gets more and more gorgeous with more to choose from. As usual, we've got plenty of loveliness by Gisela Graham; from traditional rabbits and eggs, to wooden pigs and wool beehives that all add a touch of cuteness to your home.

    Emma Bridgewater knows how to make storing your Easter chocolate look delightful. The medium egg tins are traditional and timeless, and will keep hold of your chocolate happily until eaten. They make for a great addition to a gift if you're posting eggs this year, just pop one in the tin for a bit of extra protection with some added loveliness.

    Jellycat probably has a toy for every occasion and we simply love it. Their Spring collection has got lots of lovely Easter cuties, including adorable chicks, ducklings, lambs and bunnies. These would also make for a great little gift alternative if you don't fancy giving the little ones too much chocolate this year.

    Finally, for the tea and hot cross buns in the garden, get really into the Easter spirit and serve them on some seasonal tableware. Whether it's the Emma Bridgewater Bumblebee range, or Spring flowers with the Gisela Graham mini bits, it'll be sure to make it feel that little bit more seasonal.

     

    Despite everything, there's no reason you can't get your home looking like a Springtime dream this Easter, even if it's just for the sake of a new season shake up. It's a wonderful time of year to welcome new beginnings and better times (particularly this year). So whether you will be celebrating in the garden with a small group, or simply staying safe with a hot cross bun or two to yourself, we hope you manage to enjoy some of the joyful anticipation that Easter brings with it.

    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.

     

    Send a Hug

    Send a Hug

    It goes without saying that over this past year we've all missed hugs. And whilst in good time, we'll be hopefully able to hug anyone and everyone if we want to, for now we must continue to remember it as a distant privilege. But we can find ways of persevering and getting through, can't we? And one way we can do that is by sending a hug in the post instead. A virtual hug!

    Inspired by the fabulous new Molly Mae cards that we've got new in, we think the idea of sending a hug in the form of a card and maybe a little keepsake is just about as good as it gets in this lockdown life. There's a variety of cards to choose from, whether it's for a grandparent or a friend, one of these lovely little cards are ideal for right now.

    In fact, there's a whole host of lockdown-themed cards for you to choose from. We've had lots of deliveries of new designs and top ups of old ones from brands such as Corniche, and Woodmansterne, with a variety of sweet or humour themes. Perhaps you want to show an NHS worker just how much you appreciate them, or brighten someone's day with a card that would make them giggle.

    Tie it all together with a little trinket from East of India. We've got lots of glorious newness in from them at the moment, so there's even more loveliness to choose from. Whether it's simply a little pebble letting them know you care, or a heart hanging for them to hang somewhere special, one of these little goodies with a card will be the warmest of hugs for a loved one to receive through their letter box.

    These little treats really are a lovely way to remind someone of how much you care. Don't forget that we can gift wrap bits for you and write out cards on your behalf, so even if you're unable to do it yourself, you can still send your love to that special someone.

    Love Is In The Air...

    Love Is In The Air...

    After what feels like the longest January of all time, there is finally an end in sight, and February is getting closer and closer on the horizon, hopefully bringing with it some renewed hope, and of course, a little bit of love..

    This year we're thinking that perhaps we can extend Valentines day to include anyone and everyone. Not just showing your other half some love, but anyone you care about big time. Because after the terrible year we've had, we think everyone could do with a little extra love.

    You Daisy Parkers know how much we love a card, so of course there are some beautiful designs to choose from as always. From classic Emma Bridgewater cards using rich reds and pretty pinks, to Molly Mae cards that are extremely relevant to our current situation - just brilliant. There's humour cards for the couples who don't take life too seriously, soppy cards or simple ones, for those who like to keep things subtle.

     

    We also love a theme here at Daisy Park, so if you want a gift to go with the card that fits with the love theme then these little treats from Greengate are just delightful, don't you think?

    But if you want to keep it lowkey and just give a little token, an East of India trinket is often the perfect way to say how you're feeling with a little touch of meaning. You can't go wrong.

    If you want to give something a bit more special but still a classic Valentines option, jewellery is always a good go to. Whether it's a simple necklace that they've had their eye on for a while, or some of the timeless heart studs that always go down a treat, One & Eight is always a wonderful choice.

    Whether you choose to go for an extravagant gift or something more subtle, remember that if you can't be with your loved one this Valentines, we can help to make it that tiny bit more special. We're still more than happy to gift wrap products free of charge, and we can even write out cards on your behalf too. Our favourite part of the job is wrapping up goodies to look beautiful, and helping customers to get special gifts for those they care about, so please do just let us know.

    Sending lots of love to our customers now just on Valentines day, but all 365 days of the year. We hope everyone has a good day, whether it's a virtual Galentines, or simply a good film and a cuppa in bed. It's the little things that are underrated tokens of love after all.
