The Fabulously Fashionable Gift Guide

With Mother's day soon approaching on the 26th, it is still not too late to pick up a few special gifts to give this Sunday. Even if you are just looking for a gift for a different occasion then this blog post may offer you some useful ideas. 

Jewellery

Jewellery gifts aren't the most original but that doesn't mean they are boring. Jewellery can be thoughtful and beautiful and is something a person can keep for a lifetime. 

The first item on the gift guide is Sence jewellery, a wonderful Copenhagen brand.

Stunning semi precious stone necklaces are statement pieces and the best thing about necklaces are one size fits all! 

A bracelet is the perfect fit for treating someone to jewellery that is both unique and precious. This subtle bracelet is laced with semi precious stones and is sure to be appreciated. 

These sophisticated earrings are worn gold plated metal with semi precious stones which make wonderful pressies.

Candles

Shown below are some of the soy based candles that are not only thoughtful but genuinely smell amazing. They have a typical burning time of 40 hours and come in a handy gift box. 

A classic gift to give is candles and we have 7 different message candles in the range to choose from. "Instant happy woman just add bubbles" and "this house runs on love, laughter and prosecco" are our top picks for a mothers day present. 

Bags

There are a good selection hydestyle bags that suit everyday and can be used on both sides to turn a day time look into  night one. The bags are available in arrange of beautiful shiny metallic and are irresistibly stylish. 

They are also made of real leather and all have inner pockets and come with straps. 

On the reverse side, the bags are plain suede colours as one example shows below. 

Besides the messenger style bags there is also the small cross body bag, which looks incredible with a leather jacket

Clothing 

Buying clothing for others can be tricky, however this gorgeous floral print blouse is super flattering for all shapes and has a contemporary take on florals.

Scarfs

As for a cheaper alternative a scarf is a good idea. Brighten any outfit with this lovely colourful accessory. 

 

I hope you have a lovely Sunday and celebrate with loved ones. To find out more information about any of these items feel free to click on the links and pictures.

A Weekend at MODA Fashion Trade Show

Last Sunday we prepared ourselves for a busy day down in Birmingham at Moda, the UK's largest Fashion Trade Exhibition. Catching a flight to Birmingham effortlessly took us on our way into the conference centre.

From there, we managed to make the most of our visit by watching the catwalk shows and listening to inspiring seminars.  

With the help of a map, we decided to find our bearings, as we were in a massive maze of exhibitor brands, it was slightly overwhelming to know where to head first.  

Although, we soon came across new brands that we wanted to know more about, which we hope you'll like as much as we do! We also payed a visit to the Bohemia representatives to take a look at the Autumn/Winter range, however this sunday we have a upcoming buying appointment in Glasgow to go over the collection properly. 

In the end it was a successful day out as we now have three new exciting brands to work with.

Please come visit us in store to check out the new ranges we fell in love with at the show.
