Christmas is just around the corner, so let Source for the Goose help take the stress out of choosing a thoughtful Christmas gift for someone special in your life.
Wrap them up in a cosy cuddle with a wooly blanket - perfect for keeping your loved one warm over the winter months. My Tweedmill blankets are made in the UK and are available in a range of colours that will delight any recipient. When not snuggled up in it, they will add a soft and comforting touch to their favourite chair or over the end of a bed.
Give a gift of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint that will inspire an up-cycling project - a small (120ml) tin of paint and wax, plus a small flat brush will let the creative friend in your life paint a table or chair to give it a new lease of life. Add a copy of Annie Sloan’s latest The Colourist bookazine for some Boxing Day reading.
Present them with Christmas in a tin with a Pintail Candle - with evocative scents such as Christmas Eve, Mulled Wine and Cinnamon & Orange, these scented candles will be just right for for the whole of Christmas and Boxing Day and the pleasure will be felt by all those who are visiting.
A Christmas bauble or decoration that reminds them of home and which will inspire memories every year. Whenever the boxes of decorations are opened in December, the memories explode as to who gave or made each piece as you pull it out. The gift of a new decoration for a very special person in your life will also give them the gift of that memory in future years.
A one-off vintage piece is a gift that keeps on giving. A treasured piece of vintagenalia with all its history, will spark conversations and memories for many. Buying a new, but old, family heirloom is a wonderful gift for anyone who appreciates a less commercial and thoughtful world.
Lastly, if it is a stocking filler you are looking for, look no further than one of my Soapfolk collection of soaps especially the Mixed Soap Gift Set Handmade in Stow on the Wold, these deliciously scented soaps are also plastic and palm oil free, so tick all the boxes for thoughtfulness for the environment and our skin!
