    Vegan Treats for Veganuary

    Vegan Treats for Veganuary

    This month, many of you will be taking part in Veganuary. Typically this new tradition is themed around food and diet, but if you're enjoying your experience of being vegan and feel like exploring it a little further, check out these products that you can use in every day life or as gifts, that are also vegan.

    The main star of the show here is our glorious range of luxurious soaps, which are all completely vegan and sustainably made. Starting with the ever-popular English Soap Company ones, they are enriched with heavenly shea butter for a moisturising experience and smell simply divine.

    There's also the Barefoot Beauty soaps which come in unique and fun (and recyclable) packaging to make for fabulous gifts.

    And let's not forget our newest soaps and most outgoing by far, the brilliant novelty soaps by Go La La. Made with natural ingredients and no palm oil, these don't only smell gorgeous, but will bring joy to someone's day when they see it. We get people laughing at them almost every day in the shop.

    Alongside soaps, there's the wonderful Heathcote & Ivory products which are all vegan also. There is a great range of beautifully designed goodies that never fail to make a convenient and special gift.

    And finally, we love a good candle here at Daisy Park. Luckily for us all, the candles we stock are all vegan friendly! Including St Eval's gorgeously natural and minimalistic candles, as well as the bright and beautiful Country Candle Company's fabulous candles too. There's a scent to suit everyone with these two brands combined and we're sure you'll find something you love.

    These goodies, alongside our great variety of generally environmentally-friendly products, will get you further along the path of sustainability in no time. Cut down on plastic by using one of these reusable water bottles from Dopper or Chilly's, always have a reusable bag to put your shopping in with a Hinza bag, or make sustainability stylish with jewellery from a brand that focuses on making minimal impact on our environment, One & Eight. Perhaps it's not so hard, after all!

    Top 10 Gifts For Him

    Top 10 Gifts For Him

    Whether it's our dad, grandad, brother or husband, many of us have that man in our life that we simply can't shop for. Maybe he's really fussy? Has expensive taste? Or simply already has everything?

    Whatever it might be, we're sure there will be something you can get him. Read on for some ideas big and small, and one of them might just spark that light bulb moment you're waiting for.

    1. A Chilly's bottle

    Chilly's bottles are a great gift for pretty much anyone and everyone, of all ages. Simple and stylish in design, they can look effortlessly cool whilst also being practical and useful. Or if they've already got a bottle, why not add to their collection and treat them to a thermal coffee cup which are just as nice?

    2. An Asta Barrington tray

    If the man in your life is someone who likes to host, why don't you give them a tray to serve the beers on? Or a tray that features their favourite tipple of choice.

    3. A bottle opener

    These Austin Sloan bottle openers are a must-have for man caves. It simply wouldn't be complete without one, don't you think?

    4. Socks

     

    Getting men socks for Christmas seems to have become somewhat of a tradition over the years, so carry it on in style with a pair of Powder socks for men. They come in some fabulously bright and busy designs and even have their own free gift bag to save you the hassle of wrapping it up.

    5. An Emma Bridgewater mug

    If in doubt, go for a mug. In our opinion, you can never have too many (mainly because there's too many nice mugs that come into the shop all the time). If the man in your life is someone who enjoys a cuppa, then a mug such as the Emma Bridgwater Shoreline Scattered Boats mug might be a lovely one if they also like the sea or sailing.

    6. Bookaroo stationery

    If he has an office job or is a student that's always in need of pens and rulers, then pretty much anything from Bookaroo by If is a great stocking filler gift. The notebook tidies are ideal for preventing them losing pens, or the notebooks are simple yet sleek in design for notes and planning.

    7. A Hinza Bag

    The idea of getting the man in your life a bag might seem an odd one to some at first, but a Hinza bag really is one everyone. They're incredibly practical for doing the weekly food shop or for carrying books in and come in a wide range of colours to suit everyone.

    8. A String Tin

    The Emma Bridgewater string tins are a great little present for anyone who loves gardening. The potting shed design mimics a man cave theme and is simply rather sweet. There's also a tin to match to keep bits in such as screws or gardening gloves.

    9. An English Soap Company Soap

    For a bit more luxury in the shower, why not treat them to an English Soap Company soap? With scents such as Bergamot & Ginger, or Sandalwood & Pink Pepper, we're sure the man in your life will be smelling divine in no time.

    10. East of India trinkets

    East of India always know how to say it best in their trinkets and treats. If you want to show your partner how much you love them, or remind your dad of how great he is, one of these are a great way to show that.

    Eco Goodies for Plastic Free July

    Eco Goodies for Plastic Free July

    Here at Daisy Park we're always trying to do our bit towards helping the environment. One way of doing that is by continuing to stock an increasing amount of products that are both sustainably made and will continue to benefit both the planet and us!

    As July is plastic free month, we thought we'd put together some of our favourite products that are free from plastic and will help us all to reduce the overall amount of plastic we use. From reusable insulated water bottles to stop us buying plastic water bottles, to beeswax food wraps to prevent us using cling film or sandwich bags, there's some brilliant goodies that of course, are gorgeous too.

    One of the best ways to instantly reduce your plastic consumption is by opting for a reusable drinks bottle rather than buying new ones regularly. These days there's so many fabulous choices out there, and we're proud to stock the iconic Chilly's bottles, as well as 'Gift of the Year' winners Bioloco Loops, Rex London and Dopper bottles (more of these coming very soon so watch this space). Most of these keep your drink of choice either cold for 24 hours, or hot for 8-12 - perfect right?

     

    Next up is reusable bags. You could treat yourself to one of the gorgeous Hinza bags that can have many different uses such as picnics, shopping or gardening to name a few. Or there’s Eco Chic backpacks or the lovely Emma Bridgewater foldaway bags. All help to reduce the amount of plastic carrier bags being used which is just great.

     

    If you often wrap your sandwiches in cling film or sandwich bags, these might be a great new alternative for you: beeswax food wraps. Made from ethical fabrics and coated in beeswax for easy cleaning, these wraps not only keep your lunch fresh, but also look gorgeous in doing so! We’ve got three fabulous Emma Bridgewater designs in different sized packs with various sizings for whatever you can think of to use them for.

     

    These are some of our favourite sustainable bits that are often seen as a sort of ‘starter pack’ to getting greener, but we stock various other sustainable brands and products. From Eco Chic lunch bags and cool bags, Frugi organic kids clothing and backpacks, to St Eval candles which are all made with the planet in mind and zero plastic. We’re proud to be a part of the ever-growing change to being kinder to our lovely world Earth.

     

    Summer Florals

    Summer Florals

    Here in South Molton in lovely North Devon we’ve got the summer season event of ‘South Molton in Bloom’ getting underway. Businesses around the town contribute and it means that beautiful bright flowers can be seen all around the square and elsewhere. We love it so much that we thought we’d theme this weeks blog post on all things floral to celebrate one of our favourite times of the year.

     

    Emma Bridgewaters newest floral range is certainly one that has a place here. We love it, particularly the sunflower tray which is just so bright and sunny. Plus the mini tins which are super sweet and can be used to store little bits and bobs, or used as part of a gift stuffed with some sweets. Then there’s also the brand new calendars. We know it’s only July but we’re already getting ready for next year, and thanks to their gorgeous design they even fit in with the floral theme too.

     

    Pip studio goodies are always bright and colourful much like seasonal flowers, especially the Blushing Birds ranges. Available in reds, yellows, blues pinks or khakis, there’s plenty to choose from to suit all tastes and add a touch of vibrancy to your home this summer. Even if it’s just for decoration such as using a mug to keep pens or makeup brushes in.

     

     

    Gisela Graham mugs are such lovely mugs to have in the home or give as gifts. The sunflower mini mug & jug is the cutest little set and matches really well with all of the other lovely flowery goodies. If you’re a lover of sunflowers and have some growing in your own garden, these might be perfect for a cuppa whilst you give them some TLC.

     

    Finally, although not necessarily floral in design, Hinza bags are such a great accompaniment to any flower or garden theme as they’re so useful for either storing gardening tools or making a quirky alternative to a plant pot. We think they look fabulous with some flowers in!

     

    We do love a bright window, and right now our display is certainly looking that way, with all of these tulips, sunflowers and more, plus all of the lovely flowers all over town, its really looking quite gorgeous at the moment, just what we’ve all needed!

    National Picnic Week

    National Picnic Week

    If you weren't already aware, this week is national picnic week. Here at Daisy Park this is quite exciting to us because not only do we love a great British picnic, but we've got some really rather lovely goodies to make it a perfect one.

    If the weather is kind to us this summer we're sure lots of you will ne making the most of it and having picnics at every opportunity. So if you're as serious about making a perfect picnic as we are, here's a little something for you to snack on.

    The star of the show here has got to be the gorgeous Emma Bridgewater bamboo crockery. The designs are timeless and so is the quality, so you can be sure to use these for years to come. The bad news is they're discontinuing this glorious range soon so be sure to grab your bits whilst you can!

    The last thing you want on your picnic is sitting on grass that's still slightly dewy and standing up to that damp feeling on your bum, so a blanket is essential. If you want to go for a more stylish option then the Atlantic Blankets are just gorgeous. Plus, we've heard rumours that the White House brought some of their blankets to take back with them after they were in Cornwall for the G7 summit so there we go, White House approved.

    Keep your cold drinks cold in the sun and your hot drinks hot with an iconic Chilly's bottle. No need to worry about having to drink warm water on a hot day, definitely a picnic essential. Grab one of their food pots as well to keep warm foods warm or cold foods cold, such as soup.

    For sandwiches and other cool items, the Eco-Chic cool bags and lunch bags are great options. Not only are they sustainable products due to being made largely from plastic bottles, but they're also great quality and come in some lovely designs too.

    And to put it all in? Hinza bags are ideal picnic bags thanks to their practical design. Easy to wipe clean, sturdy and of course plenty of gorgeous bright colours, you won't regret buying one of these.
