Cornish gifts for her
How's your present shopping going? Treated the women in your life yet? Here, take some inspo from us with our Cornish picks.
Say it with flowers
The seasonal paperwhites from Scented Narcissi on the Isles of Scilly herald the start of Christmas at Muddy Cornwall HQ and also make an awesome gift, as they arrive by post ready to pop in a vase. We’ve ordered them for lots of our friends we haven’t been able to see this year (ssshhh!)
These boots are made for walking
Dog walking, school run, Sunday stroll before lunch on the beach, you name it, these boots are made for it. A Muddy fav. Waterproof and go with everything!
We love all the products from Land&Water but this rejuvenating sea salt and sea buckthorn, with uplifting orange, rosemary and mint essential oils to invigorate and cleanse windswept skin is our current go-to.
Bring some colour to winter walks with the gorg knitted rainbow bobble hat from Padstow boutique, Aloft.
Light up her life
This Bay & Rosemary gift hamper from St. Eval candles will bring a bit of light and spring hope into your house, as well as rejuvenating mind and body – it’s a lovely fresh, invigorating herbal fragrance, with the scent of cool bay leaf and refreshing green earthy notes of rosemary.
Put a ring on it
Rings aren’t just for weddings – they make a great present to self if no-one else can be persuaded (I can’t be the only one who occasionally buys my own presents?) and this Peruvian Blue Opal ring from Lucy Spink is a stunning example with lichen-like patterns, set on a plain silver band to allow the stone to shine.
Make it a double
Expand the gin horizon with this Eight Tea Days Gin – a real voyage of discovery on the palate, including British Royal gala apples, Rose petals from Pakistan, Hungarian Orris root, Chinese Cassia and exotic Grains of Paradise from the Ivory Coast.
This soft organic tee from Surf Kernow speaks of warmer days to come, or is perfect for the lounging days of Twixmas.
Gift that keeps on giving
These string of hearts in a ceramic pot from Little Pots, Lots of Love in St Agnes are just the thing if you’re after a sweet gesture which keeps on growing.
North-coast based illustrator Jacquie O’Neill has created a range of surf, SUP and water related artwork for the women of the sea on your pressie list – beautifully drawn and hand-finished, either choose a ready-to-ship print, or, she takes commissions.
If she can’t function without her morning caffeine, here’s a nice suggestion. Get her a stylish cup and a monthly coffee subscription from Origin – for added bonus points, offer to make it for her as well!
Cup from £14, coffee from £17.50
