This winter season, We thought we’d put together a little gift guide of ideas on what to get your loved ones this Christmas, which is something we’ve never done on the blog before…And it’s a post we’re quite excited about! All of us at BeFab are obsessed with everything that has to do with creativity and design, So today, we’ve put together a gift guide that’s perfect for your favourite design-savvy or stylish person in your life.
And, If we’re being perfectly honest… We may have even put some of these items on our own holiday wish list too.
So without further ado, Let’s get started!
One of our lovely Printed and Co designers, Rosie Cook, has some of her beautifully designed silk scarves for sale this year, There are 3 scarves to choose from as part of Rosie’s ‘Shapes’ Collection and each colourful silk square features an abstract design inspired by landscape and travel. It’s size makes is great to use as a pocket square or a headscarf.
Each individual scarf comes in at £25, and if you are looking something for a stylish person in your life then have a look at Rosie’s lovely website here
We are Rushworth have some lovely cashmere & lambswool pieces available for all this winter season. Hats, Scarfs, Jumpers, the lot! As difficult as it to pick one item from the Rushworth website, my favourite has to be the Lambswool Bobble Hat, with the cold winter on its way this is a wardrobe staple for any friend or family member and it looks pretty too! The bobble hat is available at the Rushworth Website, along with some other clothing pieces and accessories.
There are so many talented designers on our Printed and Co site and another one of our lovelies, Rachel Parker, has a beautiful Etsy store “Pixel & Thread” with lots of gift ideas for this christmas season, As difficult as it was for us to pick one! We finally settled on Rachel’s Cosmetic Bags, The stunning and extensive range of designs means that it should be easy for you to find one that matches with a friend or family members style. The bags are digitally printed onto our fife linen union fabric, hand sewn with a coloured zip and lining and they are printed and manufactured right here in Scotland.
Prices for the cosmetics bags start at just £15, so if you want to have a little nosy around the store and see what lovely design pieces Rachel has, have a little look here.
Looking for something to add to a gift? Something small for addition to a secret santa ? or even to add with your new purchase of the Rachel Parker Cosmetic Bags! Then have a look at these beautiful Caren Barry pocket mirrors which would make a lovely gift for any occasion or a great Christmas stocking filler!
Caren is one of our lovely Printed and Co designers and she has such amazing designs, she has a fantastic Etsy store full of gift ideas for the home as well as accessories such as these mirrors. With the mirrors a bargain at only £2.50!
A complete new take on a standard mens tie. UnifiedSpace Ties are made with fabric from our very own BeFab Studio and are printed on Fife Linen rather than silk, which gives the tie a more of an updated and contemporary twist. The ties are designed, printed and stitched right here in Edinburgh giving the outfit a classic yet modern twist.
The ties price in at £60, so if your looking for a smart, handmade and hight end accessory then you should definitely check out Niki’s Etsy store here
What do you get the man who has everything and loves to build things? a Useless Machine 2.0 of course! The Useless Machine comes as a set of parts which you can solder and screw together to make one of the silliest but coolest products around. If the person you are buying for is not a fan of soldering though, there are different levels available so have a little look on here to find out more about this very special contraption and watch the video below.
SPARROW AND CO. have some lovely homeware pieces for sale this festive season but our favourite has to be this candle “December”. If your looking for a gift for someone this Christmas and your not sure what to get them then you really can’t go wrong with a candle! Especially one that smell as good as this one! Each candle is hand poured right here in Scotland using 100% natural wax and oil and the delightfully sweet smell of Cinnamon, clove and orange zest creates a classic Christmas atmosphere in the home.
Brambleshed are based just outside Edinburgh. We’ve added them to this list because not only do they design beautiful objects for the home that are not just aesthetically pleasing but functional too, they also use locally-sourced hardwoods and reclaimed timbers on all there serving boards and doorstops.
Speaking of serving boards, the Brambleshed Spalted Beech Serving Board is one of my favourites and would be a great gift for anyone who loves to entertain dinner parties or appreciates interesting and distinct home decor. Prices start at £30 and are available at brambleshed.co.uk along with some other beautiful home pieces.
Unihom is a lovey Etsy store that specialises in making kitchen homeware pieces and vases. My favourite is the Glass water pitcher, it would look lovely on someones kitchen counter or dining room table but it is also a practical way to store and infuse water, the really cool thing about these products though is that the glass is handblown right here in the UK and are superbly made. Have a look at Uniholm’s Etsy as there is a lot of different glass products you are sure to find something that will fit in with everyones homeward style.
Everyone loves a good blanket on a cold winter night and these ones from Hilary Grant are beautifully made, Knitted and hand-finished in the Scottish Borders. They have a great choice of three colours and would be a lovely gift for a loved one to pop in there living room. you can find them here at hilarygrant.co.uk
