Trendy Little Friend

It’s always lovely to be featured in an editorial, it is extra special when it is unexpected and when a design has been considered a trend-setter.

My coffee just got an extra kick one morning as my heron (or my trendy little friend as I called it) was in the trend section of an industry magazine. So, occasionally I hit the right trend, which explains why this bird range is so popular at the moment.

You can view the whole Fly range here and to read more of the greeting cards and stationery trends you can check the March issue of Progressive Greetings Magazine here.

Hope it inspires you to create something beautiful.

Best Wishes,

 

Last Minute Ideas for Dads

I tend to buy gifts very last minute and I admit, this blog might not be helpful in the foreseeable future. Thing is, Father’s Day is on 19th of June (in the UK), so not much time left for shopping and this blog might not help you at all.  But I’m sure that you’ll agree that when it comes to gifts, Dads are always overlooked plus finding a gift for a man is always unmistakably trickier than finding a gift for a woman and in this scenario any help is welcome. This year I decided to browse the net and see what is on offer that I liked.  I’ve made a little list of precious finds that will inspire you to go out there and get him something personal and really special….even if it is very last minute.

Jolly Drink

Let’s be honest, you could never go wrong with a drink and it’s one of the few gifts that would surely leave him on a jolly good note. If beer is his thing then this beer bouquet is simply a great idea.  Or if you are after something more special I could not help noticing that a couple of more pound notes and zeros would get him truly spectacular bubbles.

Mens Skincare

A little pampering will go a long way and whatever Dad says (‘lotions and potions are for women’…), I’m sure he loves it. Why not get him something from Temple Spa. With so much attention from the press, they are surely getting something right?!

Experience

Dad has got everything on the planet?! Don’t despair. Virgin are offering experience gifts, which in my opinion is much more exciting than any other gift. Choose anything from driving, riding, jumping, short breaks etc, there will surely be something your Dad would love to experience.

DIY Gifts

There are things that money could never buy and possibly are the things you made as a gift. I know it sounds like going back to nursery or school and I am sure you’ll say you never have the time for such matters. But if you are going to find 15min to make something then why not look at this wonderful list of 101 things to make.  Most of them are easy to make and I am sure whatever you make will be the most precious gift he’ll ever receive.

Socks

Ok, if it has to be socks, let them be this ones. I think I might get a pair for myself 🙂

Your Perfect Card

Slip a card with your perfect gift and write it by hand if you can. Your sentiment on paper will be a sweet reminder for your love for him.
