    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.

     

     

    Get Buzzing over Insect Goodies

    Get Buzzing over Insect Goodies

    Whether you're fascinated by them or terrified of them, bugs and insects can be found wherever you go. But, as the little creepy crawlers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, their unique patterns and colours can make for some great inspiration for homeware, don't you think?

    So perhaps letting these glorious goodies come buzzing into your home wouldn't be such a bad thing..

    From Emma Bridgewater and Gisela Graham to Frugi and East of India, there are lots of brands in Daisy Park that feature pretty little creatures. Most common is of course the incredibly popular Bumblebee, which we are all for because they are undeniably cute.

    We're also loving the Emma Bridgewater butterflies and bugs range. The Chilly's bottle in this design is a personal favourite of ours, as but there are lots of gorgeous butterfly designs from other brands too. Such as the Eco Chic bags and coffee cups, and even some of the Djeco kids toys.

    PICS: Eco Chic butterflies, kids stuff?

    Even East of India can bring some bugs life into their products. These bits make for some lovely gifts if you know anyone who loves bees or butterflies, aren't they just the cutest?

    So if you or someone you care about has a love for all things insects, then perhaps some of these goodies will be something for you or them to get buzzing with excitement over. Normally we might try to get these creatures out of our homes, but these ones we might just have to let live here for a while..

    National Picnic Week

    National Picnic Week

    If you weren't already aware, this week is national picnic week. Here at Daisy Park this is quite exciting to us because not only do we love a great British picnic, but we've got some really rather lovely goodies to make it a perfect one.

    If the weather is kind to us this summer we're sure lots of you will ne making the most of it and having picnics at every opportunity. So if you're as serious about making a perfect picnic as we are, here's a little something for you to snack on.

    The star of the show here has got to be the gorgeous Emma Bridgewater bamboo crockery. The designs are timeless and so is the quality, so you can be sure to use these for years to come. The bad news is they're discontinuing this glorious range soon so be sure to grab your bits whilst you can!

    The last thing you want on your picnic is sitting on grass that's still slightly dewy and standing up to that damp feeling on your bum, so a blanket is essential. If you want to go for a more stylish option then the Atlantic Blankets are just gorgeous. Plus, we've heard rumours that the White House brought some of their blankets to take back with them after they were in Cornwall for the G7 summit so there we go, White House approved.

    Keep your cold drinks cold in the sun and your hot drinks hot with an iconic Chilly's bottle. No need to worry about having to drink warm water on a hot day, definitely a picnic essential. Grab one of their food pots as well to keep warm foods warm or cold foods cold, such as soup.

    For sandwiches and other cool items, the Eco-Chic cool bags and lunch bags are great options. Not only are they sustainable products due to being made largely from plastic bottles, but they're also great quality and come in some lovely designs too.

    And to put it all in? Hinza bags are ideal picnic bags thanks to their practical design. Easy to wipe clean, sturdy and of course plenty of gorgeous bright colours, you won't regret buying one of these.

    New Goodies Galore

    New Goodies Galore

    Here in the shop we've had lots of gorgeous new goodies arriving since opening up that we simply couldn't resist showing you. Including diaries, tins and jewellery, along with adding to our slowly growing collection of sustainable products such as Chilly's reusable water bottles, there's lots of lovely newness, so read on to get updated.

    The new Emma Bridgewater tins have been very popular since they came in earlier in the month. Their bright, floral designs are perfect for the upcoming summer season for storing all of your baked treats in.

    We've been wanting to stock Chilly's bottles for a long time now so to finally have them is super exciting to us. Of course we had to get the Emma Bridgewater designs in, but if you're not a fan of patterns there's plenty of sleek, bright block colour choices instead. These guys are the originals when it comes to insulated bottles, so you can be assured that your cold drinks will stay cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. Plus it's another way to cut out a little bit of plastic and therefore help the environment which is always a good thing.

     

    On the topic of sustainability, our other most recent addition is beeswax wraps. These can be used instead of plastic alternatives such as clingfilm or plastic bags and apart from anything else, look fabulous as a part of your lunch. But they can also be used to store snacks, or keep things tidy in your fridge instead of endless plastic tubs. They wipe clean really easily too so they're super handy all round.

     

    One thing people often forget that we sell is jewellery, and we've recently had some gorgeous new pieces come in too. We're lucky enough to stock the ever-so stylish brand One & Eight, known for it's minimalistic, coastal-inspired, premium quality jewellery that we just love. They're a local, sustainable company and all of the items come in either mini glass bottles or sleek metal tins so they look fabulous as gifts.

    These are just some of the wonderful new bits we've had into the shop recently. There's also been new diaries from the company Busy B, new home décor treats from Gisela Graham, and new cards and gift wrap from Paper Salad plus much more. But we'd be here all day if we went on! So for now here's a taster of some of our favourites and we'll leave the rest to you if you want to have a little explore. You can start in the 'new goodies' section of our website, which you can find by clicking here, or just browse whatever takes your fancy yourself.

    Fathers Day Gift Guide

    Fathers Day Gift Guide

    On Sunday 20th June the day that we celebrate all the dads and father-figures in our lives will be here again and hopefully one to remember as we'll all be able to actually spend it with them once again. However we do feel it's important to say that if this time of year is a difficult one for you, please feel free to click off this blog post. We have other blog posts you can read through, or simply have a little browse on our website. Either way, we understand, so do what's best for you.

    First and foremost we're so excited about stocking Chilly's bottles that we've just got to include them! These are a practical gift with an added touch of luxury that would be ideal for the man who loves the outdoors. If he's already got a reusable water bottle, then alternatively you could always gift him one of the insulated food pots so he can take breakfast on the go wherever he's headed.

    One thing you can never go wrong with is a good mug. By now most of you will know that we've always got an Emma Bridgewater mug for every occasion, and Father's day is no exception. Whether it's one of the lovely Dad mugs or perhaps one simply with his favourite animal or scene on, we're sure he'll be pleased.

    Is the special man in your life a busy one? If he's someone who spends a lot of time at the office (even if that's at home nowadays), stationery is great for being a gift that's useful but still oozes style and a personal touch. The Voyager journals are exactly this, with their sleek design and handy refills, as are the Bookaroo notebooks with the bonus of all their accessories to add to it.

    Now for a product for those who own that typical man cave. Whether it's a simple shed or a full-blown hideout, make it complete with one of these fab signs from Austin Sloan, or a bottle opener for when he's snuck out there for a peaceful beer on a Friday evening. These are also great for dads with a good sense of humour.

    The Asta Barrington Beer tray might be another one for the man cave to serve beers or other drink choices on. Or it would even look brilliant just as a decorative display of love for his favourite drink.

    Gisela Graham's mini mugs and jugs are always popular in our shop. The novelty of their simple yet cute and fun designs always go down a treat as gifts. You could give the tools one for the garden lover, or perhaps a sailboat for the guy who loves the sea.

    Finally, it's always heart-warming to sprinkle a little bit of sentiment into a gift, and the same applies to dads, grandads and father-figures alike. As always, East of India is your most reliable choice here, with hanging hearts, coasters or trinkets that always seem to say the right thing. Pop one in with your gift for that final touch of love and we think your Fathers day gift might just be complete. Now all you need is a card..

    And for the cards, we have our usual array of gorgeous Emma Bridgewater designs, along with plenty of other playful or sentimental themes for every type of man out there.
