    Fall Into Autumn

    Fall Into Autumn

    The trees are turning, the nights are drawing in, Autumn is making it's mark and October has officially arrived. We know, we can't quite believe it either. Where did the summer go?!

    But there are so many perks of the colder seasons coming in. Cosy jumpers, the many hot drinks and hot desserts like mulled cider and apple crumble, wrapped up walks in crunchy leaves, and of course the various celebrations that take place. So in this blog post, we're getting stuck into the spirit of Autumn with all of these gorgeous goodies from Emma Bridgewater, who always know how to do it.

    Autumn Crocuses, the great Oak tree range and the Into The Woods range are all perfect for autumn. We particularly love those gorgeous golden orange colours on the Into The Woods mugs with creatures that you can spot on your autumn walks amongst the fallen leaves.

    We recently had a harvest moon, and of course there's a mug for that. Plus the village fireworks mug which is an ode to Bonfire night and the 5th of November. Aren't they lovely?

    Then there's one of the first events of the colder seasons, Halloween. The themed products around this celebration are always fun and this year did not disappoint. Us Daisy Parkers have each got a set of our own that we're using non-stop in the run up to the 31st!

    Despite summer coming to an end, there are many joys that come with the colder season, and looking at these treats makes us feel really quite excited, so we hope the same happens for you.

    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..

    Gifts for Anniversaries

    Gifts for Anniversaries

    In normal times, the summer season also brings with it the season of weddings. Even though these are starting to take place again now, most of them have been put off for a long time after the year we've all had. However, thanks to this tradition of a summer wedding, this does mean that there are many anniversaries also likely to be coming up.

    So if you or a couple you know have got an anniversary coming up and you want to get them a little something, here's some gift ideas that spread the love without being too sickly. They'd also be ideal as a little present to take if you're lucky enough to be going to one of the smaller weddings that have been taking place again.

    For any collectors or lovers of the brand, the Emma Bridgewater couple mugs are a wonderful gift that's both practical and a lovely keepsake. Available in Mr & Mr, Mrs & Mrs or Mr & Mrs.

    An Austin Sloan sign is a great addition to any home, so gifting someone one of them to remind them of a special day is a lovely idea we think. Their rustic style is timeless and goes with many different interiors, inside or outside, so these are also a fairly safe bet to go for.

    As weddings and anniversaries are possibly two of the most sentimental occasions we celebrate in life, we of course have to mention East of India. Their collection of trinkets with sweet sayings and lucky charms mean that you can say all you need to say in a simple yet heartfelt gift.

    You can never go wrong with a good candle. Country Candles' 'Congrats' candle is a great option for an easy yet lovely gift. Or perhaps the 'Lots of Love' one to give to your partner as part of reminding them how much they mean to you on your anniversary.

    Gift Voucher

    Finally, if you're really stuck for a good gift or feel they already have everything, sometimes a gift voucher is the best gift you can give. That way, they can choose something themselves and you can feel reassured that they'll be getting something they love. Simply pop it in a card like one of these and you're sorted.

    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.

    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.
