With Christmas fast approaching it’s time to start planning your present lists, you don’t want to leave it until the last minute and be stuck with something generic from Asda, for someone you really care about you want to get them the perfect gift that they didn’t even know they wanted or needed, that’s when the gift of giving becomes evident.
It can however be incredibly hard to think of original present ideas for your loved ones, especially when they already seem to have everything they need, hopefully the below guide can help.
As the majority of my clients and friends are Cornish or love Cornwall I have decided to stick with a Cornish Creatives theme, these are all amazingly friendly people who have mastered their crafts and create beautiful products that I have no doubt you will love, and should cover all bases so that you can find something for everyone on your gift list.
I’m particularly biased as the owner Sean is my brother, but I don’t think anyone would disagree that he has mastered his craft and creates incredible pieces made of quality woods, he has an extensive range of products which means there is something for everyone, and if you have an idea in mind then he is always happy to take on bespoke commissions.
Cutting Boards / Bottle Openers / Coasters / Lazy Susans / Dog Bowls / Clocks / Bird Houses / Key Plaques
Owner and creator Lisa is a genuine pleasure to deal with and her background in graphic design means that she creates some beautiful floral and colourful designs on a range of materials.
Purses / Key Rings / Handbags / Card Holders / Glasses Cases / Earrings
