Time to get organised. The C word has started to become more frequently mentioned in-store! Well seeing that its already November and only ... weeks / days / hours away (according to the countdowns) I've put together some little present ideas for you ...
We will be open late (alongside a whole host of our neighbours) on Thursday 5th December for our ‘Indie shopping evening’ so remember and save the date!
Secret santa gifts
You have a set budget - but are still looking for something practical yet fun - here’s a couple of ideas for you
Doris & Dude socks
We so love Doris & Dude socks - perfect for a little stocking filler or secret santa gift. The Christmas sock designs include polar bears, robins, snowmen, sprouts and 'reindeers' (think they are really sausage dogs with antlers!) plus stylish snowflakes. These unisex socks are available in two sizes 3 -7 & 7- 11. Made from organic cotton and bamboo.
Nomads also have socks too!
A very useful and practical gift for the stationery lover in your life. Choose from "The future is female", "Stuff to remember" and "I don't know what i'm doing". At only £10.00 each, these won’t break the bank either!
Giving a jewellery gift maybe is not the most original present but that doesn't mean that that the jewellery itself has to be boring. We have a large selection in-store ranging from £7.50 - £75 from the quirky acrylic pieces to more classic styles. Jewellery can be thoughtful and beautiful and is something a person can keep for a lifetime - it's just finding the perfect style.
Who doesn't love a scarf? These always make a great gift, practical and on-trend too. Choose from chunky knitted styles to delicate silks. Bohemia have a great selection, so pop in store and find your favourite - currently mine has to be the super soft faux fur collar scarves.
So don't forget to join us for Stockbridge’s late night Christmas shopping evening on Thursday 5th December from 5-8pm. We are fundraising in support of Maggies too, so do come along. There will be fizz, fashion & festive treats!
As I’m going away, next week until the end of this month for a little holiday. I thought I would share a few ideas of what i like to travel with.
i don’t know about you but I can be a bit of a fidget, if I don’t have something to entertain me on the go - so a series downloaded to my iPad that I can binge watch or listen to podcasts, plus my headphones 🎧 dull out a lot of the background noise, which is a bonus too and helps me while away the time. Or alternatively a good book combined with earplugs!
One thing I do always find a bit strange is what some people choose to wear to travel home in. I mean everyone is heading back to Scotland right? Sometimes I think I’ve boarded the wrong plane (because I don’t think it will be short weather when we land - it certainly wasn’t when we left!)
i aways dress for comfort - my go to wardrobe right now is my Brix leggings teamed with the striped Ava dress plus a scarf (because I always can feel at bit chilly especially with the plane air conditioning)
What about you? What’s your go to travel wardrobe?
See you on my return x
Time to start thinking about your winter coat (if you haven't done so already) As the temperatures start to drop, I thought I would share with you a few of my favourites. At Eden we have many styles to choose from (although the stock of some styles already is limited).
So here is a little selection ...
The wool mix check coat by B Young
The handloom coat by Nomads
The Teddy coat by Nomads
Do you have a favourite coat? I would love to know, in the meantime thank you for reading & see you next week x
The shops in Autumn can become ‘dark’ in terms of their clothing offering. A sea of blacks, greys and muted tones fill the ‘high street’ stores.
So it’s great to see a pop of much needed colour so it’s time to ‘think pink’ from paler tones to bolder hues

What's your favourite pink? Hope you enjoyed reading - see you next week
