Happy New year from all of us at Animal Gifts. I really hope you’ve all had a lovely festive period and start to 2023. So far we have been really merrily trotting along into the new year. As I write this I’m sitting by the fire with the Head of FR (Feline Resources) Margot. Having a lovely cup of tea from one of our Roy Kirkham Breakfast Cups and Saucers, I really love these cups, they’re that perfect mix of delicate and dainty, but also big enough to have a proper cup of tea in them.
January is a difficult time for so many of us, with the darker mornings and evenings, and the bitter cold snap that we are going through here at the moment. Though that is perfect for all the night owls out there. If you have a night owl with a birthday coming up, our owl vases are the perfect gift. But if the dark is getting you down, never fear, evoke much sunnier climes with this koala vase. You might not be in the Australian sun, but what’s the harm in bringing one of Australia’s cutest citizens into your home? If you are gifting any of your purchases, check out our unique and beautiful gift wrap from Amelia Florence.
I find that the winter months are the perfect time to snuggle up with a book, but me being me I find myself reading several books at the same time. So if you are like me it might be worth picking up a few of our delightful bookmarks so that you never lose your place in the story ever again. Not only that, I find that these bookmarks are an excellent way to brighten commutes and might spark one of those rare but lovely phenomenons, the conversation with a stranger on a train. Nothing brings me more joy in these winter months than through brief moments of connection as you go about your daily life.
Maybe like me, you have set a new years resolution to write more, whether that be journaling, blogs or letter writing. I find sprucing up my writing space at the beginning of the year really helps with that, our stationary section has really helped there. Our range of paperweights has made my desk a much nicer place to be, maybe it can do the same for you.
Looking forward to spring, if you’re looking for inspiration for your garden do cast your eye over our garden section, it might be the place you find the piece that you can build your garden around, or perfect the vision you already have for your garden.
Until next time, stay safe, and happy shopping,
