    The Eco Edit

    The Eco Edit

    Here at Daisy Park our range of eco friendly products is growing all the time. It's exciting to discover new goodies that not only bring some happiness to us, but also a little to the environment too. With Earth Day coming up on the 22nd April, we've been thinking about this more than usual, and thought it might be useful to put together a blog post on all things eco-friendly that we sell here in the shop so that if you're also feeling inspired to be even kinder to the planet, then you can start right here with knowing that when you buy one of these lovely products, you're playing a small part in a big movement towards a sustainable future - pretty cool right?

    Blue Eyed Sun

    First up we're starting with a little bit of newness. These fabulous Bioloco Loop bottles from Blue Eyed Sun are our newest style of fun, reusable drink bottles for your everyday use. Made from double walled stainless steel, these will keep your hot drinks hot for around 18 hours and cold drinks cold for about 12. They have a convenient silicone handle for easy carrying, and their gorgeously unique design means that yours will easily stand out.

    We also have some beautiful decorative bowls from Blue Eyed Sun that are actually made from real coconuts! These lovely little things would be a handy and stylish way of storing all of those bits and bobs that are difficult to find a home for, like keys or spare coins.

    Hinza

    In recent years Hinza have increasingly been making their glorious bags from 'green' plastic - a material made from sugar cane which is a renewable source. These can also be recycled, so not only are they sleek, handy bags for all of your daily needs, but are also super smart and sustainable. It's a win win.

    St Eval

    All of St Evals wonderfully smelling candles are made from vegan friendly waxes and as of recently, now come in plastic-free packaging. They're made fairly locally to us in North Cornwall with planet friendly methods in mind and quite frankly, we just love them.

    The English Soap Company

    Cruelty free, vegan friendly, and plastic free packaging - need we say more? The English Soap Company is always one to be relied upon for sustainable products that will certainly leave you smelling far better than you did before. Plus, and the clue is in the name here, their lovely goodies are made right here in the UK so less carbon footprint which is always a big benefit.

    Eco-Chic

    Once again, the clue is in the name here with Eco Chic. We're big fans of their reusable face masks which have become such an essential over the past year. They're made from plastic bottles, as are the lunch bags, so they really are helping to make a difference little by little.

    Atlantic Blankets

    A blanket might not be something you'd expect to be connected to the planet, but Atlantic Blankets certainly make it so. They're made from ethically sourced wool which also happens to be a 100% organic material, and we now stock a couple of their recycled cotton blankets which are just as heavenly with the added bonus of also being sustainable. Not to mention that the timeless style of these blankets mean that you can keep them for years to come, and steer clear of the fast fashion industry.

    Frugi

    Finally, here's one for the kids. As the UKs leading organic children's clothing brand, Frugi provides reliable yet fun and vibrant products for your little ones that are kind to the planet. The bags are made with recycled plastic bottles and the clothes are all made from ethically sourced, 100% organic cotton that we must say, is super soft too. Frugi know how to make sustainability colourful with many beautiful designs that the kids will love to show off in the playground or in the park, you can't go wrong.

    So there's some of our favourites of the brands we stock who really are doing an excellent job at being kind to our magnificent world. We're always working to do better ourselves, by reducing plastic in our parcels and in pre-covid times, providing a water filling station to top up your reusable bottles in the shop amongst other measures. But above all, we're a work in progress and learning along the way, as everyone is. So, if you're feeling inspired by the upcoming Earth Day and want to start shopping more sustainably, these are some wonderful gifts and treats that you can buy knowing you're doing exactly that.

    Spring Freshness

    Spring Freshness

    Now that April has arrived and Easter celebrations have commenced, it's finally looking like Spring might actually be here. This year feels particularly special as that message of new beginnings seems to be one that rings true for all of us. Brighter times lay ahead and Spring is a hopeful reminder of that.

    So in celebration of the new season, we've chosen some glorious goodies that we think captures all things Spring. From Tulip ranges by Emma Bridgewater, to fun Jellycat characters and even a candle to get your home smelling like fresh flowers.

    A famous flower of Springtime is a Tulip, and the new Emma Bridgewater goodies in this design are simply lovely. Serve a spring salad in the gorgeous bowl, or use the jam jar for some very pretty storage, or even as a vase for some real tulips to add some colour to your home. We also love the Gisela Graham mini mugs & jugs in their Spring designs, they're simply yet so pretty.

    Jellycat probably has a toy for all four seasons, so their characters need a mention here. Whether you stick to the tulip theme or go for something more along the lines of Easter such as a lamb or chick, they'll bring an extra dash of joy to your home that's for sure.

     

    Get yourself smelling like Spring with one of the English Soap Company's glorious scents. Bluebells are another iconic spring flower, and the bluebell & jasmine soap is always a popular one here in store. Or perhaps stick to the daffodil theme and choose the narcissus & lime range for a fresh, zingy scent.

    Whilst we're on the topic of scents, you can give your home a refresh too by making it smell like a spring meadow in the sun. St Evals Spring Flower collection is the obvious choice here, but there's plenty of sweet and floral scents from Country Candles, plus these new Gisela Graham candles will also add a touch of colour and pattern if you like your candles to look the part as well.

     

    There you have it! With these fabulous bits your home will be ready for the new season in no time, forget the spring clean! Now all you need is some fresh daffodils and a supply of hot cross buns to see you through to summer and good times.

    New Pip Studio

    New Pip Studio

    After the year we've all had, it's understandable if all you want to do is jet off to a tropical paradise for a break. But whilst it's near on impossible for us to do that right now, perhaps it's time to transform our home into one instead? The new Pip Studio Jolie range does exactly that.

    With base colours of white and teal, this fresh new collection features tropical plants and palm trees to create a theme of pure exotic bliss from the comfort of your own home. Plus a sprinkling of golden dots and rare creatures like the white heron, this range is busy with a unique and alluring design that will be sure to attract attention.

    The butter dish is a firm favourite of ours, the rounded shape is not one you see often and we think it's just adorable. The teapots (available in small or large) are another favourite, but each item is just glorious thanks to the attention to detail that Pip Studio always provides. This superb collection will definitely impress guests at your next afternoon tea, whenever that might be!

    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.

    Stationery Faves

    Stationery Faves

    Is there anything better than new stationery? Over the past year we've all had to find excitement in the little things in life, and one thing we've found joy in here at Daisy Park has to be new stationery. Admittedly, we've always enjoyed stationery, so this isn't really anything new to us, but here's a few of our current favourites. Whether it's a treat for the kids settling back into school, or just a little work from home pick-me-up, there's a treat for everyone.

    These Sardine page markers are always a winner as a little stationery gift. These are ideal for students who need to section off key revision areas in textbooks etc, and they're also just great fun as they come in a variety of bright, busy prints and their own little sardine tin.

    Put them together with one of Bookaroos gorgeously vibrant notebooks and a pen and you've got a fabulous gift together for any fellow stationery lovers out there. These colours will be sure to freshen up anyones work from home space in no time.

    But if brights aren't your thing then fear not, we've got plenty of lovely notebooks to choose from to suit all tastes. For those who love the seaside, Corniche encompasses all things coastal which is continued in their stationery, with the occasional addition of their signature mugs too. Or for those who like to keep things simple, the Voyager journals are the ideal smart and sleek notebook, plus you can buy refills so that they can be used over and over again.
