Wooden wreath

It’s traditional to hang a wreath on your door, or in your home, at Christmas. If you fancy something a bit different from the usual greenery, then here’s a funky modern wooden wreath.

Created from birch plywood, the bauble design wreath is laser cut from the wood to produce a very effective and decorative design. The wreath comes with ribbon, so is ready to hang up immediately in your desired location.

The wooden bauble Christmas wreath costs £15 and can be purchased from Gilbert13′s store on Not On The High Street.

Designer Anne Paso Scandinavian birch wood tree

Birch wood tree

We realise it’s way too early to mention the ‘C’ word, but couldn’t resist a quick preview of these fabulous birch plywood Christmas trees from Nordic Design Forum.

Spotted at Top Drawer 2011, the trees are designed by Anne Paso and handmade in Scandinavia from birch plywood. The trees are available in several sizes and come flat packed – instructions are included to help you put the tree together. You can then pack them away neatly once the festive season is over.

It’s a nice alternative to a traditional Christmas tree and can be decorated as you wish.

The big birch plywood tree costs £395, the medium wooden tree is £115 and the small birch tree is £55.

The same concept is available in a slightly different, more rounded, tree too, which is equally nice and could during other times of the year.

Cute tree coasters

Aren’t these coasters a great idea? Shaped like trees, they come in a little wooden block where they stand up in a very tree-like way, when not in use.

The coasters are made in France from wood (totally apt) and are a good mix of both a practical and decorative item.

The set of four wooden tree coasters costs £19 from Leaf.

Get 15% off home accessories and gifts at Sorella

Sunday, December 5th, 2010


If you’re snowed in or don’t fancy skidding around on the ice in the cold to get to the shops, then now is the perfect time to stay inside in the warm and get on with some online Christmas shopping. To help save you money on your Christmas gifts, we’ve teamed up with online home accessory boutique, Sorella, to give you a special 15% discount!

Sorella have a shop in the lovely town of Hexham in Northumberland, which we visited during rather sunnier weather in the summer, but also sell many of their products from their online store. The name Sorella means ‘sister’ in Italian, which is very apt, as the shop is run by two sisters, Moira and Liz.

Sorella stocks a wide range of unique, stylish and handpicked gifts, including some lovely home accessories, and they specialise in stocking items made by skilled artisans.

The special 15% discount offer runs until 31st December 2010. To take advantage of the offer, simply quote the coupon code, “FRESH” when you place your online order at Sorella.

Here are our top picks from Sorella’s range:

Love wooden multi-purpose letters from Sorella

Spell out Noel or Love

These lovely mango wood letters can be bought individually, but as a money-saving suggestion, why not buy the letters N, O, E, L and V. At Christmas, you can use them to spell out the seasonal word, Noel, then for the rest of the year you can use them to spell out Love (or other variations, if you so desire!). It’s a clever idea and extra value for money, as one set provides two great words.

Handmade special storage box

Special keepsake boxes

We love the look of these special handcrafted keepsake boxes. Available in a choice of colours and designs, the boxes are all fitted with a metal spring and ribbon ties, and the spine has a handturned brass card frame with a card insert, so you can label your box.

The keepsake boxes would be perfect for storing away treasured items, or you could use them as part of a special gift.
