Gift giving has never been so gorgeous...

Summer is the season for many things, and many of these many things might be a celebration or two. And sometimes celebrations call for beautiful tasteful gifts to give to your loved ones who are doing all the celebrating. So whether it’s a wedding, an engagement or a birthday, bring a bit of vintage loveliness into someone’s life by giving the gift of inspired kitsch. Here are few ideas I’ve uncovered this week that will save you a bit of money on all the generous present buying…

The House of Fraser sale is always worth checking in with. They’ve got everything from chic homeware to designer handbags with some rather fabulous price cuts. Seriously, once you get sucked in there’s no going back. This week I’ve dug up a few beauties using this fantastic House of Fraser discount voucher – first up a couple of V&A items (that’s short for the Victoria & Albert Museum for anyone not in the know). These V&A Torches are reduced from £12 to £8.40, so why not match them with a V&A Trowel (was £10, now £7) and V&A Watering Can (was £35, now £24.50)?

And if your special someone is less of a garden bod and more of a bag lover, then this Fiorelli Shoulder Bag reduction should suffice – it was £49, but is now only £34.30.

These Joules Clothing voucher offers should be very much on your radar, especially if you love a bit of quirky goodness, or know someone who does. Otherwise you might be missing out on delights such as these – Welly Print Wellies reduced to £24.95 from £37.95, or, my personal favourite out of all of these week gift finds (hint hint…) this Women’s Puffin Jumper (was £69.95, now £44.95) – seriously, how could any NOT love this?

And good old Cath Kidston – you can always rely on Cath Kidston for a few gift ideas and you can always rely on me to find you a few Cath Kidston voucher codes that will fit the bill! This Vintage Rose Big Book of Buttons isn’t actually a book, but it does contain buttons. And it is currently only £5. And if you know a sewing goddess, get her something worthy of her skill, like this Trailing Floral Twin-Lidded Sewing Basket (try saying it quickly. Or don’t). Oh, and it’s been reduced from £42 to 28.

So, lots of lovely gift a-plenty. Much better than a boring old gift voucher, I think you’ll agree. Now, I’ll just sit here and patiently wait for my Puffin Jumper to arrive…
