Christmas shopping

SHOP_LOCALIf like me, you are very behind on your Christmas shopping, you might like to check out the following fabulous small Cornish businesses, who sell unique, one-off or simply lovely, unusual gifts. The high street is generally so boring nowadays & the same in every city, so why not have a browse through these websites:

 

 

 

Rocke and Nutter: Homewares, gifts & accessories sourced from Cornwall and further afield. Beautifully designed and unique pieces you often won’t find anywhere else. Their aim is to promote the finest Cornish artists and makers – such as Tom Raffield and Charlotte Jones.

I really love these Nadia Dafri bracelets and these beautiful limited edition illustrations by graphic artist Lisa Claire Stewart.NADIA_JAFRILisa Claire Stewart

Lancaster & Cornish: An online lifestyle, homewares, fabric and haberdashery store based in Cornwall. Inspired by the flora and fauna of the Cornish coastline, their products have a contemporary edge and a strong ethical background.  Everything they sell has organic certification where possible, from fabrics, to trims, to the inks used to print their designs.

These tea towels are gorgeous and the French Knickers sewing kit makes a really unusual gift! TEATOWELSFRENCH_KNICKERSFRENCH_KNICKER_BOX

Atlantic Blankets: A stunning website selling a gorgeous collection of beautiful blankets, fantastic throws and delicious accessories. Inspired by their Cornish surroundings and the amazing coastline of the British Isles, they have searched the countries of the Atlantic seaboard and beyond to create a mix of fabulous woven treats. Blending contemporary design and colour with traditional weaving methods and natural fabrics, their blankets and throws are the perfect complement to any decorative scheme and make ideal gifts for all ages. This Arran style is one of my favourites (I have a couple!) and I really love this Multi spot merino too. Arranmulti_spot_merino_lambswool_throw

Ace Illustrations: A unique collection of lively limited edition prints. Each print is numbered and signed by the artist Angus Crook. They can be personalised too (for free).FERGUSturtle

Syrup & Salt: Unique, personalised silver bracelets on ribbon – you can have pretty much any message added – I ordered “Love, Life, Wine”! They arrive beautifully packaged too.SYRUP&SALTSYRUP&SALT2
