10 must-have gifts for health-conscious people

10 must-have gifts for health-conscious people

I think you’ve gathered by the number of green smoothies I regularly post on Instagram and the lifestyle changes I made these last few months (like giving up Coke Zero), that health & well-being is a pretty big interest of mine so I’ve put together these 10 must-have gifts for health conscious people, bearing in mind what really worked for me and other things that I would like. 1. First and foremost, the Nutribullet ( also available from John Lewis) which is SO easy to use. There is heaps of information online but the big thing for me is that it’s powerful and super easy to clean. You just need to rinse off the plastic jar and that’s it. They seem to have sold in a lots of shops except at Selfridges where they have the Pro 900 series (I have the model below from John Lewis at £99 and I’m happy with it). 2. You will need a chopping board to cut all your fresh, organic fruits & vege. I’ve about six wooden chopping boards at home, which Steve uses to …

The best fashion & design gifts for him

Men aren’t always easy to buy for…If they want something, they get it without waiting for Christmas or they want something that won’t be released until next year like the Apple watch!

1 egg, 2 eggs, 3 eggs…Happy Easter

Last year, we were still living in Bristol and were lucky enough to rent a place in Clifton Village in a crescent that had the most fabulous communal garden (not thanks to my gardening skills I reassure you but to the good, dedicated people who lived there) so Mila (below) and her friends had a ball searching for chocolate eggs at Easter.If I’m really honest, for me Easter is just about eating as many chocolate eggs as I can get away with….but since the egg cube holder by Kathleen Hills is one of our best-sellers, I have a duty…que dis-je?…an obligation to share with you the gorgeous gifts we have for Easter :-) So let me introduce to my two favourites designs….First the simple yet sublime egg cube by Kathleen Hills….Now I can hear you saying…why, it’s just an egg cube!?….Oh oh oh not so fast!
