Christmas Gift Guide!

1st November 2016

I can hear the cries about this blog now; ‘It’s only the start of November’ and you’re right, but, how many years go by where you find yourself well into December without having bought a single gift for any of your loved ones. It’s at this point we run around town in the freezing cold, queueing in outrageously long lines, when all we want to be doing is putting our feet up at home, feeling smug that all the shopping for the year is done and under the tree.

SO.. moral of the story is, buy early, and leave yourself time to enjoy the Christmas season. We’re here to help- with 15% discount exclusive to our blog readers off our entire site and free first class postage to our UK customers; overseas postage will be calculated at checkout.




Over here in England, baking is as big of a trend as ever. The Great British Bakeoff ensures we’re all inspired to see if we can live up to the showstoppers we see on TV (spoiler: we can’t.) and so a wipe clean PVC apron seems a perfect gift to any amateur bakers so they can wipe any stray baking mixture straight off instead of letting it get all over their clothes! Alone, or as a little gift set with a tea towel and oven glove, it’s a fabulous one for any bakers or chefs.

Tote Bags


In a range of sizes, from small to a large with a zip and an inner pocket, and with a huge range of William Morris designs, we have a tote bag for everyone! They’re super handy, popping the small one folded up in your handbag for when spontaneous shopping occurs, or kept in the boot for when you’re doing a food shop- there’s an occasion for them all!

A customer favourite right now is Willow Bough Green, however Red Strawberry Thief, Eyebright and Compton are wonderful this time of year!


Makeup & iPad bags


Our Hearts & Kisses pattern is an original design, taken from our late 1800- early 1900 French archive. The PVC coated bag is lined with a wipe clean material- meaning any of those eyeshadow and bronzer explosions are taken care of and can be wiped away (speaking from experience..)

There are also matching iPad bags for those wanting to keep their tech safe. These are fully lined, extremely padded with a three heart design in cotton. The front pocket is great for keeping any important documents or wires safe!

Perhaps the person you’re buying for enjoys arts and crafts? If they’re always looking for a new project, a bundle of new fabrics in all different designs might a perfect choice! You could buy them a metre of each fabric, then wrap them up in a big bow for presentation; allowing them to do little projects and figure out what designs and colours they love to work with and what will work best in their home!
