At The Beach

The third and final Christmas gathering of gifts for the week is the one I'm going to be giving to my sister T.
 Inspiration for this present hit back in September when I spotted a candle named Beach Party.
This is why T will be receiving a bundle of summer beach/nautical goodies in the depths of winter.
Take one extremely pretty beach towel

and add a stripy beach bag, an anchor patterned scarf, a pad of ice cream and beach hut decorated sticky notes and a can of 'On The Beach' cocktail.
The clotted cream toffees were chosen for the beach hut design on the packaging. Also shown is the candle which sparked it all.

There are also a pair of gold shell earrings and seagull necklace.

I have a friend whose birthday is in January and I'm always a little stumped as to what to buy her. Once I had started to come up with the bits and bobs for this idea I made sure I bought duplicates of some of them so I could use the beach theme for her too. One birthday present for 2016 also sorted. Go me!


  1. This is so clever!! I love your ideas and creativity!! Most inspired. plus this is a really PRETTY present!Xx

  2. I love this gift, such pretty, and useful, things. It's funny how one thing can spark a theme.

  3. I thought I was fairly good at gift giving but now I know I'm just plain Boring!
