Here are some of my faves from their range of designer goodies…

1. Heart Money Purse (R112) by Jesse Breytenbach

How cute is this little hand-printed heart purse? Each purse is printed using carved linoleum blocks and water-based silkscreen ink. A sweet treat for the teen girl in your life…

2. Charcoal Pincushion Flower Napkins (R135) by Skinny LaMinx

Who doesn’t love the designs of Heather Moore from Skinny LaMinx? I adore these linen napkins featuring the Cape’s Pincushion flower. A great option for a design savvy friend or frequent home entertainer.





3. Bath Oil (R150) by Arrow & Hart

Which woman doesn’t like to indulge in a long, hot, fragrant bath? These wonderful bath oils are perfect for pampering someone special.





4. Recipe Cards (R185) – Essie Letterpress

The art of handwriting is slowly becoming a long forgotten skill which is why I love these beautiful recipe cards. Such a divine personal gift for the chef in your life! They come in a box of 20 and are printed on thick, ivory paper. The set is wrapped with a red and white bakers twine and placed in a box. Pretty pretty!


5. Jar Lights (R300) by Let There Be Light

Love, love, love this stunning light – would make for a beautiful center piece on the Christmas table and would be equally at home on the patio whilst enjoying a summer evening braai! These beautiful rustic lights perfectly capture the romance of any moment! Each jar is filled with a curl of delicate fairy lights, a hanging chain and a lid fitted battery.





6. iPad Sleeve (R420) by Matblac

I have yet to get my own hands on an iPad but for those who are ADDICTED this is the ideal gift! These iPad covers are made from the best 100% wool felt from Germany. They have an easy to use high quality elasticated closure and laser engraved leather detailing. Available for both the iPad and iPad with Smart Cover.

7. Suede Wallet (R530) by Matblac

Men are notoriously hard to buy presents for which is why I love this amazingly sleek and sexy suede wallet! What a stylish addition to your mans life… These magnetic masterpieces are perfect for anyone tired of bulky wallets. The carefully cut suede is set in an individually trimmed outer leather and hand finished to perfection. The flexible magnetic closure is strong enough to keep your valuables safe at all times while having no effect on your bank cards. This wallet has a soft grey suede interior wrapped in a blue dotted suede exterior, which will darken to a deep slate blue with age and gain smooth rounded edges. Beautiful!
