My December Favourites

I don’t know about you but I always seem to have a constant wish list of products I want to buy from new designers as I discover them; the list gets ever longer! And Christmas time is no different. In the search for a special gift which isn’t off the high street I always prefer to go handmade or independent; the products are so much more satisfying. Here are some of my favourite things of the moment; perhaps in time to help you find the perfect gift for someone special…


Neon London

A new Etsy discovery for me, but I am now totally obsessed. I wanted to try some alternative wrapping this Christmas and this was exactly what I was looking for! Everything is packaged so beautifully that a range of goodies from this store would make a lovely little gift for the crafty person in your life. Easy peasy!


The Crystal Divide

I laid eyes on this brand recently via Instagram and was instantly smitten. Such gorgeous colours and opulent shades, I have instantly sworn to myself to own some of their rings before the year is out! This website was launched mere weeks ago but hurry, this little company has already developed an avid following and new pieces seem to sell out super fast!
And I have to say, such fabulously affordable prices too. I like the opulence of the rocks with the glamour of the gold. Wear with leather and attitude. Swoon!

Josephine Noel for Recreation Centre

Now, you know me, I can never resist a bit of smart tableware and this handmade range is no exception. The kind of designs I flock to like a moth to the flame, these ceramics come in bright, happy colour ways with a modernist edge. What’s not to love? Why, nothing! Head over to the store now for lots more handmade goodness.
