Christmas made easy with Heart to Home
With only 40 days (or “sleeps” as our children would say!) until Christmas, it’s time to get thinking about gifts, decorations and table dressings.
Christmas is a wonderful time of year if, like us, you love making your home as gorgeous and welcoming as possible. In December, the home really comes into its own, providing not just a backdrop but an integral part of family gatherings, parties, meals and celebrations.
Here at Heart to Home we specialise in bringing you the loveliest items for the home, from dining room linens to kitchen crockery and everything in between. Since we opened our shop in Wetherby, West Yorkshire, we’ve been able to source even more wonderful items from British designers many of whom hand-craft, embroider and hand-paint the things you’ll find in our shop.
The shop will soon be decorated for Christmas, with a colourful window display in the bow window of our Georgian building, and the famous Heart to Home dining table dressed for Christmas Day. Away from the shop, the Heart to Home website is packed with Christmas gifts, matching sets and desirable items which are crying out to be given to friends and family. And, don’t forget, all items bought from our shop or website come wrapped in pretty pink tissue paper and for just £2, we’ll hand-wrap your item in a gold gift box with a cream and gold heart-embossed ribbon – perfect for gifts! The shop will be open 7 days a week throughout December so, if you’re in Wetherby, do pop in at 1b Church Street!
We thought you might find it useful if we listed what we think will be the most popular, sought-after items this Christmas, so you can jump the queue and make sure you give gifts which really delight your loved-ones!
Sophie Allport mugs
British designer Sophie Allport’s range of lovely mugs make wonderful gifts. We’ve got loads in stock, and new for Winter 2012 are her range of dog-themed cups and mugs. Our pick of the bunch for Christmas gifts are “Walkies!” and “Sit!”, perfect for dog-lovers or anyone who enjoys the great outdoors.
Hand-picked kitchen sets
More and more customers are asking us to help them put together bespoke sets of items and we think this is a great idea for a gift. How about using an animal as your theme? We’d suggest our chickens apron, a chickens jug and mug and finally a chickens teatowel. Or you could have similar items in our popular Busy Bees range. What a lovely gift!
Yes, tea cosies are very popular at this time of year and we think our owl tea cosy or cat tea cosy would make the most wonderful gift (to suit any budget).
Animal kitchen items
We stock a great deal of crockery, aprons and tea towels with animal prints and themes, and that’s simply because they are so very popular! They fly off the shelves at the Wetherby shop, are very popular online on the Heart to Home website and are always a hit when we exhibit at shows. We think our range of items with Busy Bees, chickens and dogs would make wonderful Christmas presents for animal lovers. Mr Pickles, the Heart to Home cat certainly approves. What do you think?
As for us? Well, we’ve already got the oven gloves, aprons and tea towels, so all we want for Christmas is for someone else to do the cooking for us! We can hope… :)
Do head over to Heart to Home the website (or, if you’re in Wetherby, pop into the shop). We’ll be happy to help you hand-select the loveliest Christmas gifts (and maybe a little something for yourself…)
