Father’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s day isn’t too far away (June 18th) and in order to save Dad from another year of socks and DIY tool shaped chocolate (not that there is anything wrong with either of those but if you are anything like me, dad still has them in the wrapper from last year due to sock saturation). Without further ado (links below collage):

Christmas Gift DIY: Gingerbread Jars

I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone! It has flown by and my gosh it has been a busy one. Especially the last 6 months. But I have finally made it online to blog (after meaning to do so properly every weekend for the last three months) to share with you a simple DIY Christmas gift idea. If you are anything like me this year, you are totally unprepared. I didn’t even make my Christmas cakes until November! Given how busy I have been, I decided to make my Christmas hampers a little less labour-intensive. These were top of my list to try and these custom spoons are the star of the show, in my opinion, I ordered them from Auntie Mims, along with some other custom bits and pieces (and no they didn’t ask me to say that, I just love their products). Follow them on Twitter for a discount code.

Christmas Gift Guide for the bookworm in your life

I love reading, I wish I made/had more time to read. Reading is my TV, I’d so much rather sit and read instead of watching TV but actually I very, very rarely just sit. I’m a bookworm wanna-be with a to-read pile taller than I am. I have admiration for ‘real’ bookworms, those people who you rarely see their face because there is a book in front of it. Whatever scale of a wann-be-to-faceless your book loving friend is, here’s a list of Christmas gift inspiration.

I have adored this bookmark for well over a year now, this hippo needs a book to wallow in, why not give it a home?

Christmas Gift Guide for the gardener in your life

Gardeners, for me they are an alien bunch but there are a fair few in my family and as such, over the years, I’ve managed to find a few gifting gems.

I feel like presents are all the better if they are things people would love to own but would never buy for themselves. That’s how I feel that copper gardening tools fit into the gardening tool world (a world in which I have zero experience). Implementations makes some beautiful, good quality copper gardening tools.



Do they also like cycling? This bike planter means they can take a little bit of the garden with them where ever they go.

Christmas Gift Guide for the foodie in your life

I come from a family of foodies and given that I write a food blog you’d be right in assuming that I am one too. Are you a foodie surrounded by other foodies and stumped for gift ideas? Or, are you completely disinterested in food but know someone who’s entire life revolves around cooking and eating it? Then look no further, Christmas is sussed.

This tiered cake stand is utterly beautiful, available at Oliver Bonas, it is white marble and copper perfection, swoon.

These M&S cake tins are so eye catching and I adore the scalloped edges.
