What to buy your bean for christmas

Welcome to our guide for buying a present for your bean. Mum has helped me chose the presents from Etsy We love Etsy. All the things we have bought from sellers there have been awesome. Artists around the world sell their wares, there is no bidding like ebay, they set a price and you buy now. Mum has found that if you want something custom made, most sellers will do anything in the shape, style and colour you want, if you give them enough time. We like to support people who make their own stuff, and we hope you find something you like.

Please enjoy looking, and if you can help out we ask that you spare a few christmas dollars to help our friends in need this holiday season.

We like this sweet pillow from, only $22 (US), sitting on such a nice chair too.

This is a beautiful vanilla soap, and mum says a nice gift. This seller makes some amazing soaps that look too good to use,

For our friends who like to read, like my mum. This seller is from Paris , oh la la and makes these sweet book marks from her art. They are only $6 (US).

Snuggly merino armwarmers made in New Zealand!! Mum has a pair of these in black, and she says they were great in the winter especially typing in her cold bedroom. You can find them here

This is Ulla. A very sweet softie, who looks like she needs to escape from that cage.

This is one of mums other fave bags in denim. It looks perfect for lugging all the work stuff around, and would look just as good going out at night. She also makes the same style inn other colours, yummy.

A sweet little cotton scarf with raindrops patterns, perfect for keeping your beans neck warm on those cold winter nights. This seller also does a nice range of tops too.

  8. Hi Poppy,
    I wanted to look at the bookmarks but the link is for the handwarmers. However, I might buy some of those too.
    Can you see if you can find the bookmark link?
