    New Baby Gifts

    New Baby Gifts

    There have been many things to come out of this pandemic. Banana breads, home workouts, the return of the UK holiday and of course babies. Since it all started it's probably safe to say that there has been somewhat of a baby boom, don't you think?

    The wonderful thing about babies is that they never fail to bring a warmth that can't quite be found anywhere else. We're not saying it's all love and happiness, of course babies bring their fair share of stress along with them too. It's just a reminder that they can also inspire hope, reconnection and general love to families after the hardships the past 18 months have involved.

    So if someone you know is due very soon or has just had a baby, then here's a collection of goodies that we think would make for some gorgeous gifts for the little ones, with the bonus of a couple for the new parents too.

    Frugi is a kids brand known for it's organic, sustainable products that last whilst also being dreamy to both touch and look at. All of their muslins, bodies and bibs are made from 100% organic cotton and it's just heavenly.

    East of India is a great go-to for gifts for all occasions and new babies is certainly one of them. Whether it's simply a little hanging trinket or a "baby's first" box, we're sure you'll find something that has just the right amount of sentiment with it.

    This one is a gift more for the parents to enjoy. Whether it's for decoration in the little ones room or nursery, or just a nice scent to pop in the living room in the evenings when they get a (rare) chance to relax. The Country Candles new baby candles both have a gentle scent of rosewood and come in adorable soft pink or blue polka dot tins and make for a lovely gift.

    Many people will have heard of Jellycat toys. They're one of the leading brands of cuddly toys and known for being both adorable and hilarious all at the same time. These are brilliant gifts for babies and thanks to the variety of characters, you'll be sure to find a unique and quirky toy to stand out from the usuals.

    Now to bring it all together with the finishing touch of a lovely card. Whether it's a girl, boy, twins or just a gender neutral one, there's a great variety of cards to choose from and they're all super cute.

    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.


    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!

    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.

    Daisy Park Gift Guide: Gifts for Her

    Daisy Park Gift Guide: Gifts for Her

    Well, here we are again, that time of year when everything is crazy, expensive, a bit stressful, but quite sparkly and lovely.

    However, with Christmas being quite different this year, we want to help our customers out in any way that we can. We know that finding inspiration for gift ideas can be difficult at the best of times, let alone whilst we can't get into shops right now to have a browse. So, as we try do most years anyway, we'll be providing you with the Daisy Park gift guide series over the coming weeks, to give you some ideas on what to get who, within various price ranges and tastes. Let's get started!

    This week we're kickstarting with gifts for her. As a business run by women, designed mostly for women, this is kind of our speciality. So the suggestions in this blog post are just a few of some the amazing goodies we sell that would be perfect for the woman in your life. Whether it's your mum, sister, grandma, wife or friend, we think there's something for everyone.

    1. Soruka Handbag/Purse

    You can't go wrong with a good bag or purse, and Soruka's are simply gorgeous. Made in Spain from upcycled leather scraps, and with a zero waste policy, these products are all made with sustainability in mind. So you can give a beautiful, high quality gift, whilst knowing you're helping out the world a little bit too - ideal!

    2. A Powder Scarf

    Powder is a brand that's well suited to any glamorous woman in your life who loves a bit of vibrancy. And as we're in Winter now, a scarf is a perfect go-to gift. There's some beautiful designs with bright colours, exciting patterns and fabulous creatures. Plus, all Powder products come with their own gift bag, so it'll look lovely under the tree too.

    3. The English Soap Company bundle

    The wonderful thing about The English Soap Company is that they do a range of glorious products that can be put together to make a brilliant gift set. Their hand sanitiser would be a useful and very fitting gift for 2020, then combine it with a soap and hand cream in the same scent and you've got a wonderful little bundle.

    4. An Emma Bridgewater mug

    It won't be surprising to see this product on the list. But as we're all having to use our own mugs a bit more this year being stuck at home more often, we think this might make for a perfect gift. There's designs for dog lovers, flower fanatics, or just those who can't resist a pretty pattern.


    5. One & Eight Jewellery

    These days, some might not see jewellery as a great gift as it's such a classic go-to that's been done a lot over the years. But we disagree! Jewellery can still be a thoughtful, gorgeous gift. Especially if it's from One & Eight, who create their products with the aim of minimal impact on the planet, and take their inspiration from the coastlines of Devon and Cornwall.

    6. An Asta Barrington tray

    For the hostess-with-the-mostest, who loves to put on a good spread and generally present even just a cuppa with a certain level of prettiness, then a beautiful, bright tray is a fab gift idea. Asta Barringtons are ideal, and there's even a Christmas one, so they can use it as soon as they open it!

    7. A Hinza bag

    A practical, yet stylish gift, Hinza bags can be used for probably anything. Whether it's for shopping, storing knitting in, or even gardening bits, they can probably be used. We love the idea of a Hinza bag transformed into a hamper by filling it with lots of your loved ones favourite things - just perfect.

    8. Candles

    Another great go-to. One again, as we're all stuck indoors a bit more than usual this year, why not give the gift of a divine smelling home? Not to mention the cosiness it brings to a room. Both Country Candles and St Eval have got some amazing scents, customers often comment on how nice the shop smells and it's all down to the candles.

    So there we have it, the first of our gift guides and like we said, these are just a few of the gorgeous goodies we stock. There's more beauty, more mugs, more homeware and so much more - feel free to have a browse on our website. And remember, we're always happy to gift-wrap items and write a note or card for you so do let us know. Stay tuned for the next gift guide!
