I’m not an impulsive buyer. I definitely used to be, but now I am far more thoughtful about what I choose to spend my money on. I hope Jared agrees when I say I’m pretty low maintenance, and anything designer-y or brand-y is really not my thing. I use Amazon and a draft email to keep an ongoing list of things I see and hear about – ready for when I have time to look at them. With Christmas coming up I thought I would share my current favourites, in the hope that some of your loved ones may enjoy them.
1 – Jared bought me a pair of thermal socks for Christmas 3 or 4 years ago and they changed my life. I now put big socks on at the end of almost every day and they make me so happy!
2 – I’ve seen lots of people raving about ‘Creative Children’s Spaces’. Amongst other ideas, I love the concept of creating small dens and hideaways within homes for children to exercise their imagination.
3 – Rotary cutters are so handy for any crafter; as they make tricky tasks really straightforward (so exciting). They are really brilliant for cutting through paper and fabric. A cutting mat is an essential companion – I kind of really want both.
4 – ‘Creative Family Home’ is written by the same author as ‘Creative Children’s Spaces’ and looks just as fantastic.
6 – ‘The Hands On Home’ is a book that came out this year. It’s written by American blogger Erica Strauss and shares garden to table eating, plus ways of encouraging slower living.
7 – I have seen lots of variations of gold and glass trinket boxes, and I just think they are so beautiful. The base is mirrored – a nightmare to keep clean I imagine, but the perfect home for all things pretty.
8 – ‘The Cut Flower Patch’ is the sort of thing I dream about. Having flowers in bloom cut straight from my garden all year round – one day. I’m hoping this book will tell me how.
9 – The ‘HETTA’ is a hat, a beanie, a headband and a turban all in one – it’s a money saver and looks so chic (on the picture anyway). I love the slate grey one.
