Hello once again! This week I thought it would be timely to tell you about some of the great gift ideas from Barretts. We have so many wonderful things, it’s difficult to narrow it down, but here are my initial top tips for Christmas gifts (don't worry, I'll give you some more ideas in a few weeks time).
Foxford Throws - from £72
Foxford throws have just come in and are selling fast. I was really pleased to find these top quality woollen throws from one of the last working mills in Ireland. Foxford was founded by an Irish Sister of Charity in 1892 and they've overcome many challenges over the years in order to survive. In the late 1980s Foxford went into receivership and so with livelihoods in jeopardy, local business people came together to save the mill. Today, it is a thriving concern with master craftspeople creating beautiful pieces in stores all over the world. Foxford has revived an age old craft with clean, contemporary designs, vibrant colours and softer finishes while remaining dedicated to a superior level of hand finished quality. Our throws are soft lambswool or pure merino wool, and start at £72.00.
Metal Rocking Santa and Sleigh - £35
I just love nostalgic Christmas decorations and this one certainly fits the bill. It’s beautifully made and painted and will make a wonderful centrepiece for your table or mantelpiece. Just a gentle nudge sends Santa and his reindeer rocking away... We've several styles and sizes, starting from only £4.50 for a very cute rocking horse.
'Warmies' or Microwaveable Cuddly Animals! - £11.95
These wonderfully soft “Warmies” are too cute for words! We have pugs, golden labs, foxes, cats, bunnies, penguins, and reindeer, all of which can be heated in the microwave to make them even more more and cuddly. All perfectly safe for kids and adults alike.
Bella 'Cat Bag' - £16
This stunning cat bag is a real eye-catching gift. Everyone knows someone who’s mad about cats and this is just the present for them. It even has soft, fluffy ears! Purrfect!! (Sorry about that... couldn't resist...). We also have the lovely Guinea Pig Bag, and of course Terrier Bag.
Edison Block Lamp - £50 (Globe bulb £15.50, £65.50 complete)
We are really pleased to be able to stock the very trendy Edison light bulbs and lamps. This one is my favourite, it’s a fabulously quirky block lamp which is perfect for displaying the large Globe Eddison bulb and as you can see it gives off a cosy, warm glow.
Next week I'll finish off my Christmas Musical Snow Globes review - have a great week and see you soon.
