Lots of us are choosing to ‘shop small’ this Christmas, looking to buy something unique and made with love and it’s such a lovely way to support handmade and small local businesses.  Here’s a little guide I’ve put together of some gift ideas from my own handmade shop – I hope you like them!      

My personalised cushions are not only for little girls.  I’ve been asked to make ‘Nanna’ cushions, cushions with house names on for the hallway, town names and of course ‘Mummy’ cushions for Mum’s special chair.  Something pretty for the home and something she probably won’t be expecting! 
And of course there’s always a pretty Christmas stocking for a before Christmas treat too!

Men are always hard to buy for aren’t they!  So how about, instead of the usual socks this year, you treat the men in your life to something more personal.  Maybe a string of bunting saying ‘Dad’s Office’, ‘Grandad’s Shed’ or of course there’s a personalised cushion again for their special seat in the house.
I find girls the easiest to buy for, if they’re anything like my daughter they will love anything pretty.  So, for girls, I can offer my pretty name bunting in your colour choice, a co-ordinating name cushion, perfect for making their bedroom their own.  Or how about a trendy personalised initial letter cushion in a bright colour, or even a pretty, on trend pom pom trim cushion.  This one would be perfect for a budding ballerina!


It’s difficult sometimes to find things for boys that are bright, colourful and unique.  Similar to the ideas for girls, how about a brightly coloured name cushion, or one in a monotone design for older boys in blacks, whites and greys.  There’s also a colourful string of bunting – which doesn’t only have to spell a name and of course I also offer those ‘on trend’ initial cushions for boys too which can be made in the colour of your choice!


Baby’s first Christmas is such a special time!  Why not treat that little one in your life to a beautiful personalised patchwork quilt or blanket, something special that they can keep and treasure for years to come. 
My blankets are super snuggly, perfect for all of that out and about Christmas visiting baby will be doing.
Or, If you’re looking for something to add a pop of colour to baby’s nursery, how about one of my bright baby print pom pom cushions which look great on a nursery chair, cot or bed.

I hope these ideas have been helpful.  I haven’t been able to include photos of everything of course but everything mentioned or shown here is available to order on my website and I’m always open to bespoke orders too – time permitting.
Please don’t forget that my closing date for made to order items will be FRIDAY 7 DECEMBER.  I’m getting busy already and am so grateful for every single order!
Thank you for reading!
