Good things come in twos ! D.I.Y Christmas Gift Ideas, Willow Boutique and Luka Candles.
People often say that good things come in threes…
Well I beg to differ… because this blog post is all about Twos.
# Two New favourite finds
# Two very Easy Christmas D.I.Y gift ideas
# Two new jewellery pieces.
Happy Monday Everyone !
On the weekend My sister-in-law and I got sucked into the busy shopping scene at our local markets.
We do swear though, we were only there to buy lunch and get out.
As we caught a glimpse of these two stalls we just couldn’t resist, and I honestly think they are too good to miss which is why I am sharing them with you.
> Our first New favourite find was Willow Boutique. <
This small boutique had the most adorable handmade gifts for Children, Especially Baby boys !
The cutest bow ties with some really beautifully boyish prints fit for any little monkey !
How clever that the bow ties clip onto the rompers !
Making it almost effortless for the Little man to look Classy.
A quick and easy job for any mother.
They also had a wide variety of bibs, blankets and dummy chains.
If you like what you see, I know my sister-in-law and I definitely did, Then why not visit them at the Rouse Hill markets or better yet why not like their page on Facebook.
If you are looking for any gift ideas for a new born then Willow Boutique would be the perfect stop for any Mum and bub.
> Our second Favourite find was Luka Candles! <
Hand poured Candles with delicious scents.
I’m really loving all these uniquely scented candles that are trending in the markets right now. I think Luka Candles has been my favourite so far.
Reasonably Priced and with so many scents to choose from, there is one suitable for all of us.
Love the packaging !
Super Shabby !
They have also got some really great beach inspired decorations if you’re looking for a last minute Christmas gift !
Don’t Forget to like them on Facebook.
>Moving onto our Two Very Easy D.I.Y Christmas Gift Ideas<
A Santa Sleigh made with Lollies.
A great idea for either Children or your colleagues at work.
Something creative and Edible… Too perfect !
For the lollies in this particular sleigh we have bought Normal Sized Candy Canes and a few boxes of Cadbury Favourites Chocolates.
Personalised Mugs !…
Fill with lollies of course and decorated.
My mother Works in a retirement village so she wanted to do something a little more personal for the residents.
If this sounds more like something you want to do, You can get these really cool Pens from Either Spotlight/Lincraft or any haberdashery store.
They are called UNI pens, But make sure you get the right one – just ask the staff you want something to write on mugs to set.
All you have to do is Draw your design on the mug, When you are finished set your oven to 160 degrees Celsius, pop them in there for half an hour.
Voila – Mug is done and Pen ink has set!
BECAREFUL not to burn yourself – Leave the mugs to cool for at least an hour.
When the cup has cooled, Fill it up with desired lollies – preferably wrapped ones.
Wrap it up with some cellophane and decorate with ribbons and bows.
Honestly, IT IS REALLY EASY
> And Finally we come to our two new jewellery pieces. <
I don’t really buy much commercial jewellery but these two were just too cute to resist !
Trying on all the rings and jewellery at Colette by Colette Hayman.
and what do you know… It’s purchased !
Well I hope Everyone has a had a great Monday and that this post helped you in some way
Let me know how you go !
I’m off to Watch some Marilyn Monroe !
