For the Home
Stylish goods for the cook
There is such a huge revival in home cooking these days. I suspect that it’s because we are all aiming to be healthier and only by preparing our own meals can we be absolutely sure that we are consuming the best. This is why designers today turn their attention to fabulous goods for the kitchen.
Beautiful for the office or workplace too
It’s the little details that make a room special and we’re delighted to show you this collection of vases (there are lots of other goods too) make by American artisans, craftspeople and artists. There’s another lovely twist too – if you don’t see exactly what you want, you can commission your own unique pieces.
European styling – worldwide delivery
I’m completely in love with the range of goods available on this website – I think I want to own everything that’s shown there.That’s hardly surprising when you consider that every item for sale in this online store has been hand-selected by a pir of super-stylish French sisters. They have an eye for design, that’s for sure.
Add style to your home with these timepieces
Isn’t it interesting that clocks are so fashionable as home decor these days? After all, we no longer need them to tell the time – all we have to do is glance at your phones, laptops, iPads – or almost any household appliance -and the accurate time is right there. Or maybe that’s the reason for this current trend.
Easels for the beginner or experienced painter
There’s something so very chic about using a real wooden easel when you’re painting. And the design of the traditional easel remains the best. Did you know that this traditional style has been used since the time of the ancient Egyptians? Using one of these, you’ll be following in the footsteps of the great artists of times one by.
Organization equals efficiency
Oh I know – I resisted it for years too. But it’s absolutely true whether we’re referring to our kitchens,offices or any room in which we work – if the room is disorganized, we will be too. The reverse is fortunately true. And for me, nothing used to get in more of a muddle than my kitchen drawers.
The best planet-friendly people-friendly laundry Eco Nuts
You’ve probably heard that soap nut are causing a huge stir in environmental circles. It’s not often that a product so very good comes onto the market. We’ve looked into several types available and we (and other experts) agree – the soap nuts from Eco Nuts are hugely superior.
Special gifts for fifteen year old girls
What is quinceanera? I admit that I didn’t know until I came to live in Florida. It was something that I had never come across in England but thanks to the large number of people from Latin America who live here, I became familiar with the special event that celebrates a girl’s fifteenth birthday.
Gorgeous books about Disney
Who doesn’t know the name of Walt Disney? His film company is one of the most famous in the world and since the early part of the last century, his name has been synonymous with laughter and fun. Millions visit his theme parks every year. Today, the existence of these, and the Disney characters,products and movies, are something we all take for granted.
Brighten your space with designer pillows
In the home, just as is the case with fashion, it is often accessories that make the magnificent stand out from the mundane. Vases, wall art, clocks … it’s the little details that make a home stand out from the crowd. It’s an old interior designer’s trick to make the most of home accessories and decor.
Nothing makes you feel better than fabulous fragrances
Over the years there have been many researches, medical and otherwise, into the power of scents. We all know how a certain scent can evoke memories. But our sense of smell -interestingly – is also tied into our well-being. This makes sense – smelling a wonderful aroma can be incredibly uplifting.
Style and design for the heart of the home
We’re all wanting to eat healthier these days and because of this, there is a huge revival in home cooking. Only be preparing meals at home can we ensure that the ingredients we use are the very best. And along with this revival has come a deeper interest in something I’ve always been passionate about – stylish kitchen products.
Real copies of Life magazine from history
The important thing that I have to say right away is that these items are not reprints – they are not copies – they are genuine editions of Life Magazine. They are a truly wonderful gift at an amazingly low price. Not only that, they are truly fascinating and are the sort of gift that will become family heirlooms.
Art, travel & lifestyle books for the collector
For some people, books are more than just something to pass the time on a lengthy flight or on the beach. And for those people there are no better gifts than books especially those we have featured here. This is the famed collection of Assouline.
Gifts that everyone will love
There are very few people who don’t appreciate fine foods. Sure, we’re all trying to eat as healthily as we can these days but if someone gives to a delicious treat as a gift, what can you do?It would be so rude to not indulge! By giving gourmet treats we are saying ‘go on, enjoy yourself, you deserve it’.
Holiday gifts that last forever
I love to give personalized gifts.They show the recipient that you have really thought about their gifts and cared enough to be sure that the object was right for them. What’s more, when you buy personal holiday gifts, next year they’ll be used again, and again, and again…

Some people are so difficult when it comes to choosing a suitable gift but these kits will satisfy even the most jaded recipients.
November 22, 1963. The assassination of President Kennedy
For once, I don’t have much to say. If you were born in the mid 1950s or before, then the chances are that you remember. I do. And so many thousands, millions of words have been written since and by much better writers who are more knowledgeable about the event than I will ever be. There’s no way that I can compete with them.
Limited edition coin & framed print collections
These are a stunning gift for the lover of American history but make a splendid and thoughtful gift for anyone,especially the framed coins and commemorative prints of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Some of us remember only too well that fateful day in November, 1963. But those who don’t are well aware that it was an event that changed the world.

A beautiful furniture collection
Designers seem to be at their best when creating chairs. I’m not sure why this is but so many designer chairs are sculptural works of art in their own right. I’ve discovered this European-based site which has wonderful products in every section but I must admit being drawn to the selection of chairs and stools. Shipping, by the way, is worldwide.

What are collectible lobby cards?
I didn’t know this until recently – although I do recall seeing examples at antique and collectors’ fairs – that lobby cards were used in the early days of the movie industry to promote their films. As the same suggests, these were used in the foyers of theaters to showcase forthcoming films.
Rare, signed and collectible books
I can’t tell you how delighted I was to discover this fabulous site. It has books on just about every subject imaginable. It has rare first editions, many signed by the author and whereas some books sell for tens of thousands of dollar, others are available for just a couple of bucks. And although I’m talking in USA currency, books shipped from, and to, everywhere.
What is a bento box?
Bento boxes are the way to store and carry lunchbox meals. But they are so much more than that – they are a stylish traditional Japanese art that has been around for hundreds of years. Today, they are available in sophisticated and traditional designs for adults and modern, funky versions that are perfect for kids.
Beautiful and ethical decor for any room
I think that most of us prefer these days to buy fair trade products whenever we can. Although the fair trade movement began in the 1940s, it’s only in the last dozen or so years that most of us have become aware of it,largely thanks to two factors – the internet which gives us greater access to information and the fact that so many people in the public eye have backed and promoted moves to guarantee fair wages and encourage better lifestyles and sustainability.
Ferrari photographs – heirlooms in the making
I find that there are three types of Ferrari fans. The first are those who spend weekends during the season watching Formula One practice, qualifying and the race, those who drive the road cars and those who just – like me – love the racing, the history, the tradition and the luxury Italian styling. For us, there is nothing quite like Ferrari.

Including George Nelson and a great multi shipping facility
Mid Century Modern design, furniture, home decor and architecture are definitely my ‘thing.’ My home is from that era and I have a few select, genuine pieces of furniture but my, they are expensive. I feel that the cost is worth it because they are definitely the antiques of the future. However, there’s a place for repro too.

Craft beer club, for someone who has sampled all the local beers, and wants more
Craft beer is a wonderful thing, isn’t it? A good craft beer really shines like nothing else. If you have already sampled everything local, expanding your palate to new, varied beers becomes a chore, driving long distances to sample a new set of brews can take hours.
Flowers – a beautiful gift
I remember that at one time flowers were seen as a rather boring gift. Welcome certainly, but not terribly exciting. Those days are gone. Florists today have a stunning range of floral gifts that suit just about any occasion. The wonderful thing about online florists today is that they sell so much more too.
Scientifically designed glass improves all spirits aroma
Scientists have designed a glass specifically for drinking spirits neat. The glass is designed around Naturally Engineered Aroma Technology, or NEAT. The NEAT glass lets the alcohol scent remain in the glass, while releasing the fine aromas of a good spirit. The strong alcohol scent we get when drinking spirits numbs the olfactory senses. By leaving the alcohol scent behind, you are enhancing your experience.
A gentle and natural way to start the day
Until I discovered this wonderful ‘alarm clock’ it had never occurred to me that most of us start our day harshly and unnaturally thanks to the shrill sound of a raucous alarm going off. Even if we use a radio, the volume has to be loud enough to wake us up. I just accepted this until I came across this fantastic product. With it, you can wake up to a sunrise; as gently and naturally as we should. What a brilliant idea this is.
Great gift ideas for whiskey lovers
Every whiskey aficionado knows that whiskey should be enjoyed at 15 Centigrade to really open up the bouquet without sacrificing texture. Ice will over-chill your drink, and leaves a relatively small window of opportunity to enjoy your spirit at just the right time and temperature without breaking up your whiskey.

A pivotal event in history – the assassination of President John F. Kennedy
Some of us are old enough to remember 22nd, November 1963 and can remember exactly where we were and what we were doing when we heard that the president had been shot in Dallas. There’s no doubt that this was an event that changed the world. Since that time countless books and films have been made and there are memorabilia items available that are a must for every household. I believe this.
