Stuck for gift ideas? our Shopkeeper, Louise Gorrod, has shares some of her favourite buys.
'With the month of December just the matter of days away, it’s time to get that Christmas shopping underway. I really enjoy finding the perfect gifts for my nearest and dearest, but I do prefer to give the high street a miss at this time of the year. I’d sooner source my perfect presents online from the comfort of my sofa. The Stuff of Life is a great one-stop place to start. With its wide variety of products to suits all tastes and budgets, it’s where you’ll find something that little bit different.
From felt slippers hand-stitched in Yorkshire, lavender pillows handmade from gorgeous liberty print fabrics, beautifully illustrated calendars inspired by old time botanical field notes to contemporary limited-edition jewellery crafted in rural Nottinghamshire, here’s my picks to inspire your festive shopping'.
