The Cotswolds has so many amazing creative companies, shops and crafts people. I have chosen just a few of them to show you for my first Christmas Gift Edit so, if you’re stuck with what to buy her this Christmas then here’s a few ideas which may help!
From £4 – £40 I hope there’s something here to suit most ladies in your life, young and old!
Decorative Pineapples – Tonic Broadway
This year has been all about the Pineapple. John Lewis says that along with White Trainers the humble Pineapple has been the most searched for product online so far over the past year and it’s not showing any signs of a slow down.
Being a self-confessed Pineapple addict I’ve added to this statistic and over the last couple of months I have bought myself several! There’s a lot more Pineapple purchasing in me so I am always on the look out for a new version.
Tonic, the new Beauty and Interiors boutique in Broadway has its finger on the pulse when it comes to Pineapples and they stock a pretty good selection including these White and Silver china ones, of which I already have two, these two in fact.. one large and one small.
Call Liz at Tonic and reserve yours PDQ because when they do re – stock they do tend to shimmy out of the window pretty fast! These are not available on-line but please call 01386 852 065 or contact the shop via their Social Media pages @tonicbroadway
China Pineapple priced at between £12 and £15.
Sass & Belle Unicorn Christmas Tree Decoration – At Home Broadway
A lovely little pre-Christmas Eve gift to hang on the tree before the big day or a stocking filler for special addition on the 25th….
Unicorn Christmas Tree Bauble – £4.99
Hydrangea Coasters – All of My Heart, Broadway.
Coasters are not something I’d usually buy but I’m a Hydrangea obsessive so if anyone in your life is also a Hydrangea lover then they might like these beautiful coasters, handmade in the Cotswolds and available at All of my Heart, Broadway. These are also available in placemats!
Knot Bracelets, Love the Links
They also stock these simple and classic knotted bangles from Love the Links, perfect for anyone who loves the metallic craze of the moment. Choose either Rose Gold, Gold or Silver.. or all three.
Knot Bracelets £9.95 / Hydrangea Coasters £6.95 – both from All of my Heart, Broadway.
Recently named Entrepreneur of the Midlands by the Coventry Telegraph, Emma Heathcote-James created her Broadway based Soap business with one simple aim… to make pure, natural soap accessible to everyone.
This hand soap has an incredible aroma which wafts through the room once used. Fragranced with pure Rose Geranium, this liquid Hand soap produces a rich, creamy lather that is gentle on the skin. Packed to the brim with powerful antibacterial properties too, making it perfect for naturally cleansing & protecting all the family.
All of Emma’s creations are pure and organic made with the finest natural ingredients and totally free from detergents, SLS, alcohol, palm oil, parabens, sorbates, silicones, sulphates and preservatives.
No wonder she’s taking the world by storm!
Organic Rose Geranium Liquid Hand soap 250ml – £5.99
Three Wick scented candle from 100 Acres
This simply stunning three wick candle from local company 100 Acres Apothecary is a sure winner. This is a development from their Signature scented candle, 100% natural, hand poured with soy & rapeseed wax & a luxurious blend of lemon myrtle, lavender and rose geranium pure essential oils.
It looks quite beautiful when wrapped or unwrapped. Crisp, elegant and pure in its simple white box packaging and patterned glassware. A 40 hour burn time is sure to remind you of the scents of the English countryside anytime of year and so far I am loving the gentle waft of nature floating around the house.
Three wick candle from 100 Acres, reasonably priced for its size at £40
WARPAINT make up bag – Lush-Stuff, Cheltenham
The older I get, the more make up I seem to need. I’m not talking the amount which fits in a normal sized make up bag, oh no, MUCH bigger things are needed here… Industrial sizes are required.
WARPAINT..made in Cheltenham is the ultimate sized make up bag with all of the coolness that you need, just the right colour combos to match the metallic trend and in ever faithful black what’s not to love? If Zoella loves it then so do we.
WARPAINT make up bag – £12.99
Wild at Heart Gifts – Cotswolds
This Pom Pom hat needs to be added to my collection. It comes in a variety of colours; black, navy, pink, cream and grey and is available in all of Wild at Heart’s 3 Cotswold Gift Shops – Chipping Norton, Moreton in Marsh and Broadway.
Soft and snuggly, the perfect cosy addition to her wardrobe, and mine.
Pom Pom hat in variety of colours – £25
That is all for now…I hope you’ve found something here to add to the Christmas list, fill the stocking with or hide under the tree.
Happy early Christmas shopping
