Hot off the press from the Eco-friendly Card Co is a brand-new collection of art cards from artist, Julia Crossland.

Inspired by the British coast and countryside, Julia creates illustrative mixed media paintings from her riverside studio in Yorkshire.

She enjoys going out with her sketchbook for walks, observing the birds and wildlife, the colours and textures of the landscape and the change of seasons. She uses all these influences to create collections of work that convey a sense of story that is reflected in this new card collection.

Cards are printed on a 100 percent recycled textured FSC certified board, carbon-balanced with The World Land Trust. 153mm square, the cards are supplied either with a compostable bag or 'naked' with a card clasp label and white textured 100 percent recycled envelopes. RRP £2.25-£2.35.

Discover the beauty of robin jewellery with the pretty Equilibrium Robin's Appear Collection from Joe Davies.

Each piece is plated with real silver and gold and coated with an anti-tarnish protection to keep it looking clean and polished. We all have a soft spot for this sparky little bird which is regularly voted Britain's favourite and this collection is proven to be a firm favourite amongst Equilibrium customers.

Spring Fair will see the launch of many new robin pieces, including a bookmark, key-rings, brooches, necklaces and bracelets all carrying the message: “When robins appear, Angels are near” either on the actual piece or on the packaging – a spiritual reminder of a lost loved one watching over us.

The gifting gurus behind In A Matchbox are set to re-release its most popular product and this one will be hotter than ever. 

Marvling Bros, founded by friends Hayley Madden and Emma Dobie, creates mini gifts that can fit inside a matchbox (and your letterbox) which range from mini marshmallow toasting kits and micropub seed kits to novelty stationery and their best-selling "Hot stuff" chilli in a matchbox gift. 

Now, to celebrate its 10th anniversary, the team are set to get those tastebuds tingling once again with a relaunch of Hot Stuff, and this time, it will be even hotter, as Emma explains. 

“We'd been so busy preparing for Father's Day we hadn't noticed we were coming up on our 10th anniversary but after testing the water with our customers, we knew we had to mark it and what better way than to bring back what is, on every level, our hottest ever product?” 

This limited-edition release of 500 is a knockout combination of the world's hottest chilli powders, each carefully curated and beautifully presented in a miniature glass bottle.
