Stocking Thrillers

The sight of a full stocking on Christmas morning is one of pure joy yet the sadness of getting to the last gift in the corner of the bootie is also just too much to handle (dramatic? Me?!) Well, we’ve put together a mini gift guide of WSd treasures to ensure that those stocking fillers and secret Santa offerings are gifts than keep on giving…

There’s nothing better than a Christmas morning cuppa before the fizz pops and it will taste superb from a Bombay Duck tea cup and saucer (£17.95). And for the perfect blend? How about a Novello tea, coffee or hot chocolate caddie (£10.50)?! Amid the collection in store are special stocking fillers just for the Sarah in your life. WSd has collaborated with this fun brand and Sarah-fied some of the slogans for added sparkle and sass of the simplest of life’s pleasures. 

One of the best things about a stocking is that it’s full to the brim with gorgeousness and fun…bits and pieces that you don’t necessarily need but that are just, well…lovely! How beautiful are these little knick-knacks from Day home? The ‘smile’ and ‘love’ twisted wire signs are only £5 and come in sleek black and gold envelopes. The sumptuous heart cushions will add an eclectic homely touch to any space or one of these beauties would make the perfect addition to a baby girl’s first Christmas stocking. Cute!

Take the stress out of Secret Santa with a much-loved Emily Coxhead Happy Jar. These little jars contain tiny handwritten notes of happiness that fulfills the beautiful Emily’s mantra of ‘sprinkling a tiny bit of happiness all over the planet’. £6 for guaranteed smiles is a small price to pay and bang on budget at that! A beautiful customer scooped up four on Sunday for Crimbo gifts so get yours quick!

Skip the frankincense and myrrh and head straight to the good stuff with an Imogen Owen fine bone china mug, hand decorated in 24-carat gold (£14). All Imogen Owen products are ‘made in Britain using traditional skills and quality craftsmanship’ and this amazingly talented designer and illustrator has created her own unique and beautiful calligraphy style. There’s also a fabulous selection of naughty but nice Christmas cards in store. In the words of Sarah, “calligraphy heaven with gangster words!”

Scarves and candles get a bad rep at Christmas and are often considered ‘panic buys’. Well at WSd we totally bust that myth with our selection of wooly wonders and seasonal scents. The Vero Moda super sized blanket scarves are oh so cosy and super soft. Available in dusky pink or a beautiful grey, these beauties are a fail-safe choice at only £26. To finish off the perfect gift, a Parkminster mini votive is presented in an elegant yet simple brown card gift box and rings in at only £5.

For the girl that has everything how about Orelia pin badges  (£18) to pimp her lapels?! They’re fun, super on trend and will fulfil that yearning childhood desire for a Blue Peter badge…!
Don’t forget to make your WSd Christmas wish list! Simply tell us what you’re coveting in store, we’ll take a photo of it and pop the snap into an envelope stamped with a special wish list message. All you have to do is give it to anyone wishing to buy you a festive treat!
