    Daisy Park Gift Guide: Final Stocking Fillers

    Daisy Park Gift Guide: Final Stocking Fillers

    We've almost reached that time where we all start to slow down a little and wind down ready for Christmas to really begin. But before that blissful part, there is of course that last minute rush that we all experience, getting those final few bits to bulk out the main gifts, and stocking fillers.

    Here at Daisy Park we love the stocking fillers. It's a chance to give and receive some of those sometimes slightly random, but really quite handy and fun goodies. Anything from mini hand creams and stationery bits, to keepsakes and jewellery. So in this final week, we've taken inspiration from the humble stocking filler gift, and created a list of some of our top recommendations to pop inside it.

    1. Hand Sanitiser

    Sorry! We know this is probably a bit obvious, but this year it really does feel like the most useful stocking filler to give to all the family, it'll definitely get used after-all. But take this as a chance to get them a more luxury one with a scent that will make them want to clean their hands 200 times a day, like the English Soap Company ones - heavenly. Or the Heathcote & Ivory ones for the same gorgeous scents, but in super compact packaging for the 2020 handbag essential.

     

    2. Bookaroo Stationery

    Yet another really handy stocking filler, not only for youngsters at school/college/uni, but for the new wave of those working from home who left all of their bits at the office. Whether it's the notebook tidies, the very useful phone pocket or the bendy reading light for the little ones, you can't go wrong with a bit of stationery at Christmas.

     

    3. Luxury Powder Socks

    One of the major underdogs of Christmas gifts, don't you think? They're the type of gift that seems a bit 'naff', but really, are quite a lovely thing to receive. Especially if it were a pair of the fabulous Powder socks, which come in an array of gorgeous prints and colours, and are wonderfully soft and cosy too. The alphabet socks are particularly great stocking fillers, get a pair for each of your receivers' names!

     

     

    4. East of India goodies

    Perhaps the leader of all stocking filler gifts, East of India gives the option of sprinkling a little sentiment into your gifting. Their goodies make for perfect little extra presents, whether it's a ceramic hanging, a pebble, a trinket dish or one of their new lovely felt baubles, you can't go wrong with an East of India gift.

     

    5. Beauty

    For those who love a bit of a pamper, we've got some fabulous little treats to throw in the stocking. Including mini hand cream trios, soap bars or lip balms, they're an easy option that are also ideal for those always on the go.

     

    6. A Gisela Graham brooch

    These little accessories have been a favourite as stocking fillers or little extra gifts for a while now. The beautiful designs are lovely little keepsakes for someone who likes to add a little sparkle to their daily outfits, and we even have a couple of Christmas designs in store at the moment. Not for long though!

     

    7. Emma Bridgewater foldaway shopper

    For someone who is perhaps trying to go a little greener, or simply for someone who never have enough hands, the Emma Bridgewater shoppers are great little extras to throw in.

     

    There's so much more bits and bobs that we think are perfect for stocking fillers. You could get decorations for someone to add to their tree, tealights, coin purses, jewellery and so much more. Simply have a browse at our website or pop in and have a look around, we'd love to have you.

    And as this is the final blog post before Christmas, here's us wishing you the best, and sending you many seasons greetings. We hope everyone manages to stay safe this year above all, and have a merry one in any way you can. Lots of love Daisy Parkers.

    Daisy Park gift guide: Gifts for Him

    Daisy Park gift guide: Gifts for Him

    This week on the Daisy Park gift guide.. him. That's right, the one who more often than not, is impossible to buy for. (Why is that?) We know buying for men can be a nightmare sometimes, and we'll admit that as a shop that caters for mainly women and general pretty things, this is not our area of expertise.

    But, that doesn't mean the task of finding gift ideas for the men in our life is an impossible one. We've managed to pull together some goodies that we think would make great gifts this Christmas, so that you can hopefully get a bit of inspiration at the least.

    1. An Austin Sloan sign

    You can always rely on a great gift when it's from Austin Sloan. Handmade in Britain, their rustic wooden style means that they bring a touch of character to any home. Choose from funny ones for the joker, or more sentimental ones for those big softies out there.

    2. An Emma Bridgewater Mug

    This one can't be missed off the list. We mentioned in the last blog post how we're all spending more time at home using our own mugs, so we're reminding everyone of this once again, and therefore suggesting a good mug to spruce up the man in your lifes cuppas. Whether it's a mug for the dad, the gardener, or the one who spends his time in the shed, there's a mug for them all.

    3. A Dopper Bottle

    Staying hydrated is important for all of us. So you really can't go wrong with a reusable bottle as a gift this Christmas. They're ideal for all everyday uses such as throwing into a work bag or taking on a picnic, and if you choose insulated steel bottle, can keep hot drinks in too. Plus, you'll be giving an eco-friendly gift as reusable bottles help to cut down on plastic pollution.

    4. An Ecoffee cup

    In keeping with the theme of sustainability, reusable coffee cups are also a perfect gift for anyone who loves a hot drink. Whether it's for their morning coffee run on the way to work, or for taking in the car on a long journey, Ecoffee's reusable cups are just great. There's also a range of lovely colours and funky designs to suit all tastes.

    5. Handy Extras from Bookaroo

    We may be biased as big time stationery fanatics, but handy little bits and bobs can sometimes be a really brilliant present, don't you think? And Bookaroo certainly do some really useful products. If he's someone who (in normal times) travels a lot, then the Travel Tech-Tidy might be an ideal gift for keeping his chargers and other bits in. Or if he's always on his iPad/tablet, the super handy stand might just be exactly what he needs. Plus more goodies that would be great for those who have had to turn their home into an office this year.

    7. A classic hip flask

    This one might fall more into the novelty area of gift ideas, but an old-school hip flask has been a classic gift for men for many years. Ideal for he who loves a drink, or potentially useful as a handy travel-sized carrier for their favourite spirit, this hip flask might be the quirky stocking filler you need for the man in your life this Christmas.

    Well, we've done it! A list of gift ideas for all the wonderful men in your life. We hope this has at least provided you with a bit of inspiration, we know it can so often be really tricky buying men.

    We've still got more gift guides to come so stay tuned for those, and in the meantime you can shop all of our goodies on our website where we are still up and running as usual. Not long now!

    Shop Updates & What's New

    Shop Updates & What's New

    So here we are again, a second lockdown. We know this is a tough one for so many of us, but we've done it before. We can do it again. Remember, it hopefully won't be as long, we're all more prepared, and this time there will hopefully be supplies in the supermarkets! Plus, we've got Christmas to look forward to, even if it's just a very laid-back one this year.

    So, we want to keep things positive around here. We also want to help you, our lovely Daisy Parkers out the best way we know how: by making your online Christmas shopping as stress-free and easy as possible. You may have seen us mention these on our socials, but here's what we can offer you:

    • Website - as usual, our website it open 24/7.

    • Kerbside collection - If you're in the area you can order your goodies online and pick them up through the door (as safely as possible of course) Or give us a call 01769 579077 and we can organise orders for you.

    • Local delivery - If you live nearby but can't get out, let us know! We might just be able to drop it to your doorstep ourselves.
    • Card writing/gift wrapping - If you're unable to do so yourself, we can write out cards on your behalf (just give us the message you'd like inside), and wrap gifts up in lovely tissue paper and ribbons for you too.

    Don't hesitate to call or email us if you're unsure on anything, but please do bare with us, after all we are an independent business with a small team simply trying our best, so there may be a few delays. But thank you for your continued support, and everyone's kind words this week. We really do appreciate it.

    Now onto the fun stuff.. new stationery!

    If you're anything like us, this will be exciting news for you. We've stocked Bookaroo bits for a while now and we're loving their stuff so much that we simply had to get some more goodies in. We're sensing that stationery like this will be massive this year for Christmas gifts, they're super handy and ideal for anyone working from home right now. Plus, they're easy to send in the post which is definitely a bonus now more than ever!

    The reading stand is a new favourite of ours. As a bestseller from Bookaroo, it's ideal for all this extra reading many of us are doing these days. Prop your book up in bed on your lap, or place it on a bath tray with candles and your favourite tipple, and you've got a cosy night in sorted.

    The travel tech tidies are great gifts too. Ideal for anyone who travels a lot, or who has a lot wires and bits (which is all of us these days, let's be honest!). You can keep earphones, charges, pens and more in this handy little wrap.

    And don't forget the kids! There's some fab little treats for children who are into their reading or general stationery. The reading timer is super handy if you need some quiet time, then there's the mini bendy reading light that conveniently clips onto books. Plus the notebooks and accessories are perfect for school books and more.

    And much more. Stationery is always a great go-to for Christmas gifts if you're stuck for ideas, especially this year with so many of us working from home. Perhaps someone who's struggling with doing so could do with a spruce up of their at-home desk area? Or maybe they're just a huge lover of stationery, we know the feeling! It's probably a bit sad how excited we get over stationery here at Daisy Park, but we just can't help it. We hope this blog post filled with these goodies has brought you a tiny bit of excitement in an otherwise not-so-exciting world too.

    Sending lots of love to all of you, our fabulous customers. Take care and stay safe. Love from Em & the Daisy Park team. xx
