    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.

    Daisy Park Gift Guide: Final Stocking Fillers

    Daisy Park Gift Guide: Final Stocking Fillers

    We've almost reached that time where we all start to slow down a little and wind down ready for Christmas to really begin. But before that blissful part, there is of course that last minute rush that we all experience, getting those final few bits to bulk out the main gifts, and stocking fillers.

    Here at Daisy Park we love the stocking fillers. It's a chance to give and receive some of those sometimes slightly random, but really quite handy and fun goodies. Anything from mini hand creams and stationery bits, to keepsakes and jewellery. So in this final week, we've taken inspiration from the humble stocking filler gift, and created a list of some of our top recommendations to pop inside it.

    1. Hand Sanitiser

    Sorry! We know this is probably a bit obvious, but this year it really does feel like the most useful stocking filler to give to all the family, it'll definitely get used after-all. But take this as a chance to get them a more luxury one with a scent that will make them want to clean their hands 200 times a day, like the English Soap Company ones - heavenly. Or the Heathcote & Ivory ones for the same gorgeous scents, but in super compact packaging for the 2020 handbag essential.

     

    2. Bookaroo Stationery

    Yet another really handy stocking filler, not only for youngsters at school/college/uni, but for the new wave of those working from home who left all of their bits at the office. Whether it's the notebook tidies, the very useful phone pocket or the bendy reading light for the little ones, you can't go wrong with a bit of stationery at Christmas.

     

    3. Luxury Powder Socks

    One of the major underdogs of Christmas gifts, don't you think? They're the type of gift that seems a bit 'naff', but really, are quite a lovely thing to receive. Especially if it were a pair of the fabulous Powder socks, which come in an array of gorgeous prints and colours, and are wonderfully soft and cosy too. The alphabet socks are particularly great stocking fillers, get a pair for each of your receivers' names!

     

     

    4. East of India goodies

    Perhaps the leader of all stocking filler gifts, East of India gives the option of sprinkling a little sentiment into your gifting. Their goodies make for perfect little extra presents, whether it's a ceramic hanging, a pebble, a trinket dish or one of their new lovely felt baubles, you can't go wrong with an East of India gift.

     

    5. Beauty

    For those who love a bit of a pamper, we've got some fabulous little treats to throw in the stocking. Including mini hand cream trios, soap bars or lip balms, they're an easy option that are also ideal for those always on the go.

     

    6. A Gisela Graham brooch

    These little accessories have been a favourite as stocking fillers or little extra gifts for a while now. The beautiful designs are lovely little keepsakes for someone who likes to add a little sparkle to their daily outfits, and we even have a couple of Christmas designs in store at the moment. Not for long though!

     

    7. Emma Bridgewater foldaway shopper

    For someone who is perhaps trying to go a little greener, or simply for someone who never have enough hands, the Emma Bridgewater shoppers are great little extras to throw in.

     

    There's so much more bits and bobs that we think are perfect for stocking fillers. You could get decorations for someone to add to their tree, tealights, coin purses, jewellery and so much more. Simply have a browse at our website or pop in and have a look around, we'd love to have you.

    And as this is the final blog post before Christmas, here's us wishing you the best, and sending you many seasons greetings. We hope everyone manages to stay safe this year above all, and have a merry one in any way you can. Lots of love Daisy Parkers.
