Baby gifting is one of my favourite things to do, and I'm not alone. Luckily there are a plethora of products to satiate the appetite for spending on the little ones, such as these beautiful alphabet letters from Enesco. But don't just take my word for it, the company has recently won a slew of awards for its Peter Rabbit ranges!

Is it just me that's getting their tree up early this year? The halloween decorations have been packed away and the Christmas supplies are swiftly replacing them.

Handmade items are in hot demand in 2020 as consumers rush to support independents, with a strong focus on home accessories.

These gorgeous handcrafted baubles from Glasgow-based JH Designpoint will be a beautiful addition to any tree.

Hedgehogs? Tick. Hugs? Tick. Eco-friendly? Tick. This card from fair trade company Wraptious definitely ticks all my boxes, and the business ethos is second to none too.

It's that time of year where I start to plan/panic about what gifts to buy for my loved ones, with 2020 being no exception.

We all know a four-legged friend lover, which is why the Best in Show make-up bags are perfect stocking filler gifts under £10 (RRP), with the matching pocket mirror and mini travel case both under £5 (RRP).

There is never a time I don't love a candle. Whether it's part of an early morning self care routine before the house wakes up, or as we cosy up in front a good film, there is always a candle burning in my home. And as the winter draws in, the new range from Prices.

Boasting four scents ideal for the Christmas period, the collection of glass jar candles and reed diffusers come in four scents - Snowdrops & Jasmine, Morning Frost, Spiced Cookies, and Winter Warmer.

Floral gifts never go out of fashion. Spring, summer, autumn or winter - flowers brighten up any season. And the new range from Lesser & Pavey does just that.

According to the company, "Lesser & Pavey has also introduced a new addition to the highly popular William Morris range of fine ceramics. The full range captures the original designs, class and quality of the artwork and presents these desirable illustrations in practical forms for the home.
The Pimpernel range has just been added to the full range of tabletop items.

Halal gifts are booming at present, and the new range of halal hampers from Ibadah London not only offer a plethora of delicious and decadent products, it's also a wonderful gift option.

The Halal food hall range consists of a mix of premium sweet and savoury treats such as classic clotted cream fudge, flavoured biscuits with complementary preserves and mocktail-flavoured sweets. All distinctively curated with designs inspired by Persian art, they are all halal, meaning permissible in Islam.

It's no secret I'm a huge fan of green consumerism, which is why this new bottle from Tilnar Art has caught my eye.

The company worked with talented wildlife watercolour artist, Meg Hawkins, on the design of this H20 copper bottles, which are made out of recycled materials.

Not only do they reduce plastic pollution, are ocean friendly, fair trade and hand finished, recent studies have shown how the natural anti-bacterial properties of copper may help reduce the spread of viruses. So long, COVID!

They also look absolutely stunning - what's not to love?
