    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.

    Bee Happy, Bee Kind

    Bee Happy, Bee Kind

    Is that a buzzing we hear? Maybe it's the upcoming World Bee Day on the 20th May..

    With the warmer seasons come the bugs, beetles and little buzzy friends like the much-loved bumblebee, and we've got plenty of them printed on many of our products all over the shop at the moment. So we thought with World Bee day also on the way, we'd put together some of our favourite bits right now for any fellow bee lovers out there.

    The Emma Bridgewater Bumblebee range has been a popular one ever since it first came out last year. We love the vibrancy of it and the fact that you can mix and match it with some of the other collections like the buttercup pieces. We particularly love the Bee Kind mug at the moment for it's simple yet important message to remember now and forever. Plus our most recent addition is the Chilly bottles Bumblebee print we're very excited about!

    Erstwilder's newest goodies are also buzzing with vibrancy and beauty if you ask us. The Babette Bee collection is just adorable, and the bag would make for such a lovely gift for anyone who is a big lover of the little creature.

    Outside of these main collections, there's plenty of little bumblebee friends to be spotted all over our shop. From the Jellycat bashful bee, the Gisela Graham mini jugs and mugs, to even making some appearances on some sentimental pieces from East of India. 

    One thing that's a common theme in all of these lovely products is the message of being kind and being true to oneself. Despite the irresistible pun that they all make, the sentiment behind them is also important to remember. We hope these goodies bring you a bit of joy and don't forget to 'bee' kind!

    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.

    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.

    The Happy Edit

    The Happy Edit

    The wonderful thing about happiness is that it can come in many forms. Although it may be hard to find sometimes, if you look a little harder, it can often be found in even the simplest of things.

    Some things we find happiness in here at Daisy Park are: going through deliveries with lots of lovely new goodies in, wrapping gifts for loved ones on behalf of customers, and putting together a theme (actually we've always enjoyed that one). You may have previously seen some of our colour themed blog posts which we find so pleasing to do, and this time we've gone for a happiness theme because we all need as much of it as we can get rif. So here's our fabulous little happy edit of glorious bits and bobs put together to create a bright yellow, joyful little collection of treats.

    Isn't it gorgeous? We took inspiration from the beautiful Jamida tray and mugs designed by Asta Barrington because we just adore it. Then of course Jellycat just makes everything happier, don't you think? So we had to throw in the lovely sunshine yellow bunny and the snow drop and daffodil plants. The general colour theme ended up being yellow, because it just seems to be the happiest colour going and we love it.
    One company featured here that is another brilliant choice for spreading happiness has to be East of India. We talk about this brand a lot, particularly around sentimental gifts, because they're trinkets always know exactly what to say.

    All tied together with a beautifully bright yellow Hinza bag, which would spark a bit of joy in any outfit, and of course the gorgeous Jamida tray and mugs designed by Asta Barrington, the true stars of the show.

    So there we have it, a little chunk of joy in the form of a blog post. What brings you happiness during these tough times? All of our lovely products always bring us a bit of happiness when we're in the shop, so we hope some of them bring a bit of sparkle to your day too.
