One of my favourite bloggers, Abby of BeautyFull Homes owns an incredibly beautiful shop and online store called Gifts & Pieces. Gifts & Pieces sells gorgeous gifts, crafts, party and wedding supplies and a whole lot more at really reasonable prices considering how lovely everything is. The products are all laid out so beautifully with big, bright images.. just like those on Abby's blog, and I really like how everything is so well categorised too. I have so much love for Abby, so I'm delighted to see how successful Gifts & Pieces has been. Early last year my blog got hacked and I nearly lost everything but somehow Abby was able to salvage most of it for me and for that, I'll be eternally grateful. Abby very kindly gifted me three gorgeous items from Gifts & Pieces and I just had to share them with you, as I love them.
The first item I got is the Cut Out Heart Wooden Tray £8.30*, which I fell in love with as soon as I saw it on the website. I love everything Shabby Chic but sometimes everything can be a little too white, and perfect for my liking (if that even makes sense?) What I loved about this tray is that it looks so rustic with the whitewash effect on the wood, and I love the cut out hearts at each end. The tray is a really good size as it's 30cm long and 15cm wide, so it holds an impressive amount of products. I've put this tray on my bedside table to hold all of my daily skincare products and cotton wool, and everything looks so much more organised and tidier.
My next item is the adorable Woodland Fox Makeup Bag £7.90*. I love woodland creatures, especially foxes so this makeup bag is just perfect. The print is so cute, with two foxes in love with acorns and leaves. The material is of really good quality as it has a thick polyurethane cover which is wipe clean so it really is ideal for holding makeup. I like how tall this makeup bag is, as most bags are quite short and narrow so they don't hold very much at all. This bag is 17cm tall and 21cm long and holds so much makeup, and is currently packed with my daily makeup items and there's still room for more. I think this makeup bag would make for such a lovely gift, and who doesn't love woodland creatures?!
The last item I got has to be my absolute favourite; the Miss Darcy Bird Lavender Mug £9.20*. How beautiful is this mug?! I have never seen such a beautiful mug.. I really hope these photo's do it justice. The mug is actually from the brand Bombay Duck, and comes boxed in a pale pink gift box which is pretty cute in itself, never mind the mug. Gifts & Pieces have a stunning selection of mugs but the Miss Darcy Mug stole my heart. It has such a pretty silver filigree design around the top of the mug, as well as silver detailing on the handle and base. What makes this mug so unique, is that there's a lavender bird sitting on a silver branch inside the mug which looks so pretty. The mug is made of fine china and feels so luxurious considering and I really love drinking from it. I think this would make for the most beautiful gift for a female of any age, and the gift box just makes it look and feel so special. I will definitely be purchasing a couple of these for Christmas presents as I love it so much.
If you're looking for pretty gifts, cute trinkets or homeware treats, I really recommend taking a look at Gifts & Pieces.. It's such a beautiful website and I love everything.
