Hellomoon Personalised Christmas Posters (from £16)

Nothing beats a heart-warming and personalised Christmas gift, such as this poster sized print from Hellomoon! There is something so special about having the names of your family on the wall.


We were really excited to hear about this super cute “We Believe In Santa” Christmas Poster Print from Hellomoon.  The Christmas theme has been given a wonderful lease of life in this illustration and there is even space for a few names in there too.


The personalised illustration is printed on premium 250gsm silk poster paper, available in a range of sizes and with or without a frame. Uses can select between 3-5 names to add into the print and the result is a timeless keepsake for all the family. The quality of the print is superbly sharp, rich in colour and the frame feels to be sturdy too. We are very impressed!

We also love this family of Robins poster print!

Factorylux Plug-in Light In A Box from Urban Cottage Industries(£59) 

It seems as though niche, retro style lighting with decorative filament style light bulbs are all the rage at the minute and it is a trend we adore. That’s why we were excited to try the Factorylux Plug-In Light in a Box from Urban Cottage Industries.


This original gift is the perfect light for the festive season; complete with candy cane effect cable and a Swiss made classic squirrel cage light bulb. The bulb itself looks spectacular when illuminated.

Also in the kit you will find a machined silver nickel plate lamp holder, a Bakelite plug and a mounting clip to allow for the light to be suspended pretty much anywhere.

These versatile lights are the ideal present for that person who likes to be creative around the home. All the lights are built by hand at the brand’s production HQ in Yorkshire and each one is tested and certified to BS EN 60598 for exceptional safety and durability. The Plug-In light is boxed with traditional brown kraft paper for that added touch of luxury.
