    Top 10 Gifts for Kids

    Top 10 Gifts for Kids

    Christmas is a special time of year for many of us, but when it comes to children, it's particularly precious. The magic and general sparkles and treats that come with it are all just pure joy for them. And the presents of course. They've got it pretty good really haven't they?

    It can actually be quite tricky navigating the world of children's gifts when a lot of the time, they already have plenty of everything. So in this weeks gift guide, we've tried to put together some ideas that are useful, fun, and adorable, so that your little ones' will be even more joyful than Santa.

    1. A fabulously unique Jellycat toy

    The best thing about the iconic Jellycat brand is the fantastically unique characters they are always creating. So if you're reluctant to get them yet another cuddly toy to add to their collection, then fear not, because you could give them anything from a boiled egg to sardine. But equally, their more classic toys are super soft and always go down well.

    2. A book

    Also by Jellycat and a great gift companion to go with one of the toys are the super sweet story books. We've been getting more and more of these in stock because they've become so popular as gifts for youngsters. Give one on it's own as a lovely addition to their little library, or pair it with it's character for a gorgeous gift. Sorted!

     

    3. A Djeco umbrella

    These Djeco umbrellas are a popular product all year round thanks to their brightly coloured, fun designs along with the Great British weather always providing a need for them. But not many people might think of it as a Christmas gift, and they make a great one. Plus, if instead of snow, there's rain on the big day, this will make it a bit more fun!

    4. Make it a crafty Christmas

    This year, why not encourage their creative juices with some crafting activities? Not only will it provide them with a fun activity to entertain them, but it will also keep them quiet when the adults are in a food coma on the sofa. There's plenty to choose from, including origami, colouring and much more.

    5. A play tent

    Play tents can be such a perfect gift for many reasons. For one, they seem like a huge present to kids, but what's even better, is that this Tipi by Djeco is a foldable material tent, so you can just fold it up neatly and tidy it away easily. So the real winner here is the parents really.

     

    6. A Frugi bag

    Perhaps they want a new school backpack for the new year? Or maybe you could use it as their travel bag? Whatever they choose to use it for, Frugi bags are not only super cute and excellent quality, they're also made from plastic bottles so you're choosing an environmentally friendly company! There's also lunch bags and mini backpacks if you want to get a set.

    7. A reusable drinks bottle

    You can get one of these from Frugi too if you want to match it to a backpack you're already getting, or you could give them a slightly more mature choice of a Dopper or Chilly's bottle. All 3 of these do insulated options if you want to keep their drink fresh all day at school or on days out. These are a great gift for slightly older children too.

    8. Stationery galore

    Another great option for older kids, stationery is a necessity that can also be a luxury. Whether it's a notebook tidy from Bookaroo to keep their pens organised, or an adorable letter writing set for those budding writers (which can also be used to write Christmas thank you notes if that's something you like your little ones to do), there's something for everyone

    9. A good old puzzle

    A good quality, uniquely designed puzzle is such an underrated present in our opinion. We've got some gorgeous ones from Djeco, each coming in a box that actually even looks just gorgeous as a decoration on it's own. The hot air balloon is a personal fave of ours, or maybe the rocket.

     10. A Bendy Light

    This one was a really popular product last Christmas and a great one to end on. The ideal balance of fun yet practical, the Bendy Light makes for a perfect stocking filler and always goes down well with keen readers.

     

     

    Christmas Has Arrived!

    Christmas Has Arrived!

    With October coming into it's last week, it's nearing the time when we pack away the pumpkins and treat buckets and get the tree and decorations out. We can practically hear the sleigh bells and festive songs chiming in the distance already...

    So whilst it might still be a bit early, we just couldn't resist showing you some of the goodies we've been getting into the shop already. We've had cards and advent calendars in for a while, as well as the first wave of decorations and the always highly-anticipated Emma Bridgewater Christmas collection.

     

    From the wonderfully quirky Shoeless Joe decorations that are always unique, to much more traditional baubles from Gisela Graham, there's some gorgeous decorations this year. Here's a few of our favourites so far, including the glass rainbow, which flew out last Christmas as a result of the renewed symbolism it held throughout the height of the pandemic.

    As we already said, the Emma Bridgewater Christmas collections are always a big deal every year. This years featured Christmas puddings and robins and traditional toys galore. It's all simply gorgeous and would certainly make your Christmas table look like a winner on the big day.

    Last year we had the Jellycat Christmas range for the first time and people went a little bit crazy for it, understandably. This year has been much the same, with Gingerbread Fred selling out within days of us getting him in! But luckily there are plenty of other fabulous characters who are both hilarious and adorable and we simply love them all.

    Sending cards is such an underrated part of Christmas, don't you think? we love it, and we encourage everyone to do it if they can, even if it's just a few to your nearest and dearest. It's a simple way of showing your loved ones some festive cheer.

    These are just a few of our favourite pieces from our all-things-Christmas ranges so far. There's so much more available online and in the shop, including more decorations, advent calendars, and everything you need to wrap your gifts too. So stay tuned for more Christmas content, and in the meantime see it all for yourself on our website or by popping in to say hello to us in the shop!

     

    Bright New Gorgeousness

    Bright New Gorgeousness

    With Autumn slowly creeping it's way in some of us might be feeling apprehensive about the new season starting and summer ending. We're sure we're not the only ones asking where it all went?

    We love the colder months and all that comes with them here at Daisy Park, but we'll definitely miss the summer whilst it's gone. What we need is something bright and beautiful that will remind us of summer all year round. Something like cushions to bring colour to the sofa, or see as soon as you walk through the door. Something like new goodies from Bombay Duck!

    These new cushions are simply gorgeous, don't you think? Bright colours, flamboyant pom-poms and intricate stitching details all over they really are happiness in the form of homeware. They've certainly helped to refresh the shop a bit so we're sure they'll be bound to bring some sunshine back into your home, too.

    The rainbow doormat is another new favourite of ours. As it's one of the first things you see when you visit someone's home, this fabulous piece would be sure to provide an uplifting, happy vibe. This would make for a great housewarming present if you want to move away from the more traditional gifts like candles or mugs. It's not always something we might think of to buy for our homes, so treating someone to one like this will be the gift they didn't know they needed.

    So whether it's a gift for someone special, or a treat for yourself, these hand-worked, 100% cotton cushions will be sure to bring personality to your home for years to come.

    New Emma Bridgewater Autumn!

    New Emma Bridgewater Autumn!

    The days are getting cooler and the leaves on trees are beginning to change colour...

    As summer is drawing to a close and Autumn creeps in, this can mean only one thing. A new collection from Emma Bridgwater of course! This one is as gorgeous as ever, and features green leaves of the great Oak tree. We think the pieces in this range would be perfect for hosting friends or family for a cosy evening in with a roast dinner or cottage pie, or any autumnal meal that takes your fancy. You could match it with the In the Woods ranges, or perhaps the Apples design from the Veg Garden range.

    Then there's the Halloween collections. These include a fabulously bewitching Magic & Spells orange coloured range, creepy crawlies, the popular Trick or Treat cobweb design from last year, and a few others that will be perfect to use in the month of terrific terror. You might already have the treat buckets that have been hugely popular this year, along with some of the glorious napkins that would complete a scarily good table spread for a Halloween feast for all.

    After a not-so hot summer, we're feeling surprisingly quite ready to embrace Autumn here at Daisy Park. Just think of all the delights that come with it: crunchy leaves, hot apple crumbles, pumpkin carving and sparklers around fires, there's a lot to look forward to.

    What's New at Daisy Park

    What's New at Daisy Park

    Almost every week at Daisy Park there are boxes of goodies in all shapes and sizes arriving into store. It's always exciting when we get one containing new goodies because it feels a little bit like receiving a present, we love it.

    Recently we've had some scrumptious new bits and bobs trickling in and we like to keep our customers in the loop, so we thought we'd introduce you to some of them. For example, there's been some gorgeous candle trays from Pip Studio arrive, which we think would complete a dinner table perfectly by adding a touch of sophistication. Pair them with the beautifully grand candle stick holders we already have, and your table spread will be looking fit for a queen.

    Also in the home décor department is a delivery of Austin Sloan that's recently come in, with lots of signs both new and old. Here are a few of our favourites, including this Handwashing one because it's definitely been an important one this past year or so!

    We LOVE stationery here at Daisy Park. Particularly the kind of product that makes you realise you didn't know you needed it until you saw it, at which point, you simply must have it, of course. Password books are one of these products for us, so these fabulous new mini ones from a fellow small business are new favourites here. If you're forever having to click on the 'forgot password' button then these might just be a life saver for you. They'd also make great stocking filler gifts but we'll try not to talk about that time of year just yet...

    Jellycat toys never fail to provoke laughter when customers pass them in the shop. We love them too, so getting new little characters in every so often is always a joy. Some new friends in the gang include the Fabulous Fruit Blueberry, Amusable Broccoli, some adorable little backpacks, and a Bewitching Cat which would look fab next to a pumpkin this Halloween.

     

    We're always getting new cards in, to the point where we've practically got them coming out of our ears. Paper Salad are a recent new favourite of ours due to their brightly coloured, fun cards that catch the eye immediately, so we've been gradually getting more in over time. We also have some beautiful new cards from Artfile, with countryside settings on or 1920's inspired luxurious designs, there's even some fab pop-up cards.

    All of these lovely goodies are just some of our current new favourites in Daisy Park right now. But we've got plenty more coming over the next month or so, with a seasonal change pending and thus a whole new period of festivities to look forward to. This of course means lots of big new launches from the likes of Emma Bridgewater, Gisela Graham, Jellycat and more, so stay tuned for these newbies. You can keep up to date on what we've got coming here on the blog, by signing up to our newsletters, or by following us on Facebook or Instagram where we're always posting about our antics!
