These beautiful gifts are super soft and cozy while sitting around the tree. We love the huggable heart as it is weighted just so, that when you hug it, it feels like a real hug.

Beautiful jewelry handmade in Spain found at Herma’s is very striking and will definitely have people noticing. Herma, Renee and I all wear this jewelry from Spain and can attest to the way it adds sleek style to ordinary outfits.

Body Care and Fragrance

Mistral for Men

Truly swoon-worthy fragrances for men that will have your man smelling extremely sexy. We know, it is the inside that counts, however we do appreciate sex appeal. No matter what he looks like, he’ll be pleasing one of your senses at least this holiday season if he wears a fragrance by Mistral.

Bourbon Vanilla

Warm, full-bodied and complex, the subtle sweetness of vanilla spiced with smoked oak and a twist of golden tobacco leaf delivers an elegant and distinguished scent. Bold and alluring, with old world charm, it is simply irresistible.

Cedarwood Marine

Our signature blend of cool marine breezes and Atlas pine creates an exhilarating, easy-to-wear fragrance with a natural allure. Raw and elemental, evoking salt-strewn waves on the open sea and towering forests, it captures the rugged spirit of Provence.

Beekman 1802

Beekman’s soaps, lotions and body creams offer amazing moisturizing capabilities. Goats Milk has a pH similar to that of human skin, making it easy for your skin to absorb all the goodness. It has high levels of niacin (vitamin b3), fatty acids and triglycerides which are all super moisturizing and nourishing.

With cold winter days ahead of us, body-care products as nice as these will certainly offer a welcome relief for dry skin.

Frasier Fir offers up the scent of crisp Siberian fir needles, heartening cedarwood and sandalwood.

Gingerbread offers us the homey, cozy fragrance of gingerbread, spicy notes of cardamom, crystallized ginger, hints of dark vanilla and a sprinkle of fresh-ground cinnamon.

Gifts for the Home

Balsamic Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive Oil

A beautiful bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Balsamic Vinegar would make a lovely gift. Instead of a bottle of wine, switch it up, and bring a bottle of olive oil to your hostess.

Christmas Treats

Panettone, a light brioche-style Italian cake, comes in many different forms – traditional, studded with candied fruit, citrussy and chocolatey. We are proud of our large selection of Panettone which are made from Italian families who have been baking and hand packaging their Panettone for generations.
LillyPud’s Traditional pudding ingredients include the finest vine fruits, apples, apricots, almonds and ginger blended with brandy and Brentwood Brewing Company’s Clockwork Orange Ale. We also carry Vegan/Gluten Free Christmas Pudding and Zingy Ginger Pudding with Sticky Ginger Sauce. Lovely during the holidays. Also makes a great gift!

Christmas Tree Ornaments

Find beautifully encased instruments like the violin, saxophone, soprano saxophone and piano as pictured above that will make a beautiful gift for that special musician in your life.

Baggallini Bags

All Baggallini hand bags are light weight, stylish with perfectly placed pockets to fit our modern day needs. The particular bag pictured above would make the perfect bag for a new mom with a baby who doesn’t want to loose her edge. It also can convert into a backpack.

Jellycat Stuffed Animals

We have a lovely collection of Jelly Cat Stuffed animals. However they are dwindling by the day as Christmas shopping is at its height. The particular bear seen above is a Dickensian Bear that would fit right in as an actor in the Christmas Carol.

A Foxford stole woven with exquisite extra fine merino wool is one of the most versatile items you can have in your wardrobe! It may be styled in so many ways. Whether it’s draped over your shoulders or wrapped around your neck.

Merino Wool Fact

The finest and softest sheep’s wool is Merino which comes from Merino sheep. A single Merino wool fiber is a fraction of the diameter of a human hair – very soft and easy on the skin.

Mason Cash Mixing Bowls

From Downton Abbey’s Kitchen to Yours 

photo by Mason Cash

You can spot Mason Cash’s original cane bowl in almost every episode of Downton Abbey as Daisy and Mrs. Patmore prepare meals in the kitchen. Mason Cash bowls have also made their appearance on other British period dramas, like Upstairs Downstairs, for instance. And they have such a solid reputation as to have been used by bakers on the Great British Baking Show and by master bakers for recent royal weddings.

The origins of Mason Cash can be traced back to the heart of Derbyshire, England around the year 1800.

We hope you found our gift guide helpful. We wish you all the best as you make your Christmas lists this season. Happy shopping!
