    Send Some Sentiment

    Send Some Sentiment

    Every once in a while, we all get a little sentimental, right? Whether it's a big life event that reminds us of how much we love our special people, or the little things that make us happy like a cup of tea in bed on a Sunday morning. Sometimes it's just nice to send a little bit of sop through the post to show someone we care, and East of India are the company to go to for that. They've plenty of trinkets and tokens for all, plus some lovely new pieces that we think are just so cute.

    For a while now we've stocked some of East of India's lovely little handled tealight holders and they've always been popular as gifts. So now we've also got the larger ones (9x5.5cm) which come with a tinned, scented candle and we think they're great. The one pictured below has a fig and pear scent which is subtle but gorgeous.

    The thing we love most about East of India is that not only do they have little gifts with perfect sayings for every event/occasion, they also have something for no reason. For 'just a little something' gifts, and for simply wanting to brighten someone's day. Here's some of our favourite goodies; for occasions, and for the hell of it.

    East of India have got so much to offer when it comes to sentimental gifts. The goodies we've shown you today are just a handful of what we stock from them, and we're always getting deliveries. Have a browse on our website today, and you might just find the perfect way that you've been looking for to tell someone you care.

     

    Treats for Mother's Day

    Treats for Mother's Day

    Whether it's your mum or someone who means as much to you as a mum, we've got some goodies to treat that special someone this Mother's Day. Be it an aunty, grandmother, sister or friend, if there's someone who's acted like a mother figure, maybe this is a good chance to show some love.

    Before we go on, we know Mother's Day can be tough for some. You might want to click off of this blog post and ignore it if there's a chance it could upset you. If not, read on for some inspiration!

    1. A glorious new mug

    The Emma Bridgewater Mum mugs are such a classic gift for Mother's Day, and for a good reason, because you just can't go wrong with one.

     

    2. Some nice new smellies

    Another great go-to. The English Soap Company's soaps, hand sanitisers and hand creams are inspired by Kew Gardens and smell simply divine. Get all 3 products in mums favourite scent and you're done!

    3. A fab new bag

    Why not bag yourself some 'favourite child' points by treating your mum/mother-figure to a bit of a bigger treat this year with a fancy new bag? The new Earth Squared ones are gorgeous in quality as well as style, or Hinza bags are both practical and beautifully bright.

    4. A candle

    In our opinion, a good candle is one of the most underrated presents. We love them, and we've got some lovely ones from both St Eval and Country Candles. From fresh, classic spring-like scents like Bluebell, to those that will transport you to a tropical holiday like Pina Colada, we're sure there's one for everyone.

     

    5. Add a touch of sentiment

    If you're just looking for a little something to share some love, East of India has got you covered. There's sweet little tokens to pop into gifts, or hanging hearts for them to keep somewhere to remind them that they are loved.

     

    6. Top it all off with a card

    Of course Daisy Park has a card for that. Check out our fabulous array of Mother's Day cards and find the right one for you, whether it's a funny one, sentimental one, or just one with a beautiful design to make her happy.

     

    Best of Beauty: Barefoot

    Best of Beauty: Barefoot

    When was the last time you gave yourself a little pamper? We all need it from time to time. But equally, if you're able to treat yourself to good quality, dreamy products to use in the shower not just on pamper days, but every day, then why not right?

    Barefoot Beauty is a brand we've only been stocking for a short time, but we love it. Designed and made in Britain, they're extremely on it when it comes to staying sustainable and using natural, ethical ingredients in their products. That includes being against animal testing, as well as boasting being free from S.L.S, T.E.A, and parabens. They also try to use as little plastic as possible in the packaging, so when you buy one of their products you really are supporting a company aiming to do good in the world (with the added benefit of treating yourself to a very nice new soap of course).

    Outside of their wonderful values, Barefoot's products are always winners in the packaging department too. Just look at the fabulous messages you can choose from, along with their quirky, colourful patterns and prints. They're a lovely way to say thank you to someone special, or simply give them a little smile.

    Barefoots tinned lip balms are ideal as a little something extra to throw into a gift, even if it's to yourself, as their compact design means that they slip into even the tiniest of handbags so can always be carried on the go.

    There's even the odd gift set available if you simply can't choose what to get someone for a special occasion.

    Now, pop a relaxing playlist on, grab yourself a glass or mug of your beverage of choice, get a bath running and light a candle, and you've got your pamper evening sorted. We suggest the Sensuality scented candle from St Eval for this scenario. Its warm, light, feminine scent is just perfect for sitting back and winding down for the day.

    Pop in store to have a look for yourself, or find Barefoot under the 'eco friendly brands' or 'beauty' sections of our website now to buy online. 

    Take a Walk on the Wild Side

    Take a Walk on the Wild Side

    Recently at Daisy Park we've been getting in touch with our wild side..

    We adore all things bold and beautiful and some of these goodies are exactly that. From daring designs by Soruka, to vibrant colours by Powder and gloriously busy patterns on the Emma Shipley tray for Jamida, we just can't get enough.

    If you know Powder you'll know that these kinds of designs are just classic from them. Their goodies burst with colour and boast fabulous patterns to suit anyone who likes to make a bit of a statement. These leopard print bits are perfect for this and certainly help you to walk on the wild side.

    And the same goes for Soruka, who use recycled materials to create their zero-waste, upcycled gems of joy. These always make for fantastic gifts for the outgoing, bold person in your life. And their excellent quality means that you can keep one of their bags forever.

    Emma Shipley trays also encompass all things wild and wonderful in their bustling, vibrant patterns. Featuring tropical birds, jungle plants and vivid colours, they'd look superb storing your latest gin collection and would spruce up a cocktail night if you served the goods on one of these beauties.

    All of these products are bursting with bold, daring beauty and we just love it. If you or anyone you know is into this fabulous style then why not give them (or yourself) a lovely little treat to spread some lockdown love? Or with Mother's day just around the corner, there's still a few days left to grab something special for yours. Don't forget we can even gift wrap items for you too!

    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.
