I don’t know about you but I always love to receive homeware gifts that I wouldn’t normally buy for myself (because basically I spend all of my money on travel and fashion). I’m sharing some fun things I’ve acquired this year as well as some beautiful things I would love. Hope you enjoy!
Bali book by Assouline (£70)
Lego Floral Bouquet – £54.99
This year I finally treated myself to a record player and I’ve never looked back! Ok, I still have Apple Music on my phone but I discovered the joys of popping on a record and fully focussing on what I’m listening to instead of it being in the background when I’m doing a million other things. This chic Crosley player will work well in any room and plays 7 inch, 10 inch and 12 inch vinyl. And it’s also nice to start a vinyl collection – it’s basically art from your favourite artists! (I frame some of mine and rotate them). I’m also into collecting coloured vinyl and limited editions but warning – it can get expensive!! (This is a bluetooth player but needs a speaker).
Fujifilm Instax Mini 2 Printer (RRP £115 but you can find discounts on ASOS etc)
I’ve been obsessed with Instax for ages! I had a camera but realised I didn’t need both the camera and a printer (the camera is obviously still handy though). With the Mini 2 Printer you can print mini photos straight from your phone app, and there’s also updated features such as drawing on your images with Instax Air, creating frames and even video printing! My favourite film right now is the Spray Art which you can get for around £10.
Boy Smells Votive Candle Trio – £76 (at Cult Beauty)
This LA based brand (which has branched out into underwear and fragrance) has been blowing up stateside since 2015, but has now reached cult status in the UK. This holiday set includes three festive scents – Incensorial (patchouli, orange peel, ginger), Figurare (black pepper, coriander and lavender) and Broken Rosary (cedarwood, moss and cinnamon leaf). Perfect for posh candle lovers.
