If you are looking for gifts other than soft and cuddly friends, right here is a great place to start.
From Wrendale Designs, Hannah Dale's gorgeous water colour illustrations can be discovered not only on Royal Worcester, fine bone china such as mugs, travel mugs, vases and jugs, but other items for the kitchen and home such as luxurious feather-filled cushions, canvas pictures, note books, glass cases, keyrings, fabulous greeting cards and more.
Half Moon Bay provide us with fun Licensed Character mugs including Paddington and Winnie the Pooh. Whilst Ravensden offer beautiful, pictorial animal imagery on their mugs, plus PetJes World of Animals offers a wide and not very often seen, choice of wild animal keyrings.
The renown German maker Steiff, offer fun pendants and keyrings to enhance and personalise not only our keys, but bags, belt loops and more, or you may decide to keep them as charming desk miniatures. Whilst Hermann have decorative mohair teddy bear lapel pins, that not only enchant any arctophiles, but add a sense of play and interest, to what otherwise maybe, a plain coat or jacket.
Then there are traditional, English pottery Piggy Banks courtesy of Wade, decorative and charming, printed imagery with more than a touch of nostalgia and whimsy from The Wooden Postcard Company, useful wooden coasters from Northern Accents, plus the obligatory gift bags and boxes.
Don't forget, if you are purchasing that special bear, a Merrythought printed Passport would be the most perfect accessory.
