Design-y stocking fillers

December 11th 2010

Confession: I have barely started my Christmas shopping. I usually have it mostly done by this time, but what with moving house and working super hard at the moment I’ve hardly registered that Christmas is 2 weeks (!) away. I also keep getting rather distracted with things I’d like for myself, as these little stocking-filler guides to crafty/designy goodness testify.

Cow & Co is a shiny new online shop with a carefully-curated selection of goodies ranging from knitted necklaces to homeware and vintage tin toys. There’s lots of items from small indie designers and makers which is always great to see, and their website is beautifully put together. Probably if I curated an online shop it’d look a lot like this, which might explain why I’m lusting after nearly everything on it. If you fancy blitzing all your festive shopping over there in one go, they’ve given me a code for free shipping on items over £100 – enter KATIE100 at checkout.

The little Of Cabbages & Kings boutique is very local to me in north London and also supports indie crafters, with a lovely range of jewellery, bags and homeware. They are curating 3 Christmas Market days in the weekends running up to Christmas with the first one tomorrow in Islington – see here for details.

Present and Correct has long been a favourite of mine for its retro stationery loveliness, and if you’re in London they’ve got a Pop-in shop running from now until Christmas – it’s at 5 Back Hill, just off Clerkenwell Road (Farringdon tube).


Wrap up with some Sanna Annukka-designed paper from 1973. I love those foiled postcards too – at only 80 pence each they’d make gorgeous gift tags that could be recycled into wall art.
