Give Your Loved One Fine Art For Christmas. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be exploring some lovely Christmas gift suggestions from Welsh company Driftwood Designs. Do you wonder what to get that special someone for Christmas? Want to get them something different, aesthetically pleasing, but still affordable? Driftwood Designs has the gift you’re looking for. Driftwood Designs beautifully incorporates the work of Welsh artist and illustrator Lizzie Spikes. Her passion is creating colourful illustrations that can be translated into homewares, cards, prints, and more. This means her art can be incorporated into everyday life through practical objects such as oven gloves, lampshades, coasters, aprons, and clocks.
Give Your Loved One Fine Art For Christmas
Lizzie and her business partner, Becky Barratt, are both native to Wales, and their love of home and the Welsh coastline and countryside is evident in many designs. Driftwood Designs has grown from a home-based business to three shops across Wales that are as popular with locals as they are with tourists. Driftwood Designs also has an online shop packed to the rafters with gift ideas. In case you are wondering where to begin, we’ve pulled out a few stars of the show to get you started:
MUSHROOMS TIN SIGN
You can purchase Lizzie’s art on various materials from posters to framed prints, canvas to – this little gem – the tin sign. Reminiscing days long gone, Tin signs are trending again, and every home should have one.
The mushrooms tin sign from Driftwood Designs illustrates 27 different types of mushrooms, toadstools and fungi with an identification list at the bottom. Perfect for your loved one’s kitchen wall if they like to cook or forage for mushrooms. And if fauna is more their bag than flora, the sheep tin sign is another similarly fun design.
Measures 203 x 151mm
WOODLAND OVEN GLOVES
The Driftwood range of oven gloves features quirky designs, including illustrations of well-known Welsh seaside towns and beautiful countryside designs.
For something extraordinary and unique, the Woodland Oven Gloves are an excellent gift for your favourite cook. The vibrant colours and gorgeous design are bound to be a conversation starter for any nature lover.
Think Wales, think daffodils, and this beautiful design will appeal to lovers of that beautiful country and those who are still to visit.
With the vibrant flowers catching the eye in the foreground and the rolling hills in the background, this idyllic rural scene will look great over the shoulder of your friend or relative as they go about their day-to-day lives. These are part of a matching range, including tea towels, mugs, aprons and even a lampshade, meaning you can help them build their collection on each special occasion.
SUNSET AND STARLINGS LAMPSHADE
For a more extravagant gift, the Driftwoods Design light shades offer another unique treat that looks fabulous in any room and stands out from the crowd.
In particular, Lizzie’s lovely Sunset and Starlings design has been printed onto fabric, so the lampshade can be hand-finished to order in the Driftwood Designs workshop. The vibrant autumnal colours are eye-catching and soothing. Your favourite homebody will love it!
CARDS AND STOCKING FILLERS
With such fabulous designs at accessible prices, you may want to stock up on some gorgeous Christmas cards available, too. With illustrations ranging from traditional Welsh, idyllic snowscapes, cutesy villages, seasonal seafronts and good old-fashioned traditional Christmas scenes, your recipient will put your card in pride of place, knowing it’s a cut above the rest.
And with Driftwood Designs being so sensibly priced, you can stock up on fabulous stocking fillers or even your Secret Santa surprise. For under £5, you can get magnets, badges, notebooks, coasters, car stickers, and keyrings. And while they are low on price, they are high on style, showcasing Lizzie’s signature panache.
I hope you enjoyed that.
