Shop Small: Homeware

Just five minutes browsing Etsy homewares makes me want to do a full Changing Rooms on my house and transform every corner into Pinterest perfection. Whatever you style, there will be a potter or painter who selling something that sums up your style and makes your house more homely. I've gathered my top picks for you to enjoy yourself or give as thoughtful, unique gifts.

a tall white ceramic house with black speckles and cut out windows

£9.70, AquaTerraCeramics

The speckled finish of this sweet house is bang on Scandi-style, and I can imagine it looking so cosy in the Winter months. I'd gift this one with some lovely tealights (some of my faves are actually from Primark, but decant them into a posh box and nobody will be any the wiser) or if you know the recipient has children, pop in some fairy lights that will offer the same cosy glow without the fire hazard.

a rippled wood chopping board half dipped in blue, purple, and white swirls

£35, Kate Chesters 

If you're looking for an unusual gift, there are few that can beat these beautiful boards. Kate is self taught so each piece is made with passion and a tonne of raw talent. There are serving boards, tapas boards, and coasters, all dipped in mesmerising swirls of resin that complement the knots and grains in the polished wood perfectly. A lovely gift for foodies, new homeowners, or as a wedding present.

a wooden hoop stretched with white cloth and embroidered with colourful flowers, green sprigs, and small buds

£14.00, StitchAmbition

I am in awe of the patience that goes into creating these Pinterest-perfect hoops I've seen around. They're absolutely gorgeous and would bring a touch of Summer to any room of the house, minus the pollen! There are lots on Etsy, so look around for your favourite flowers or colours to suit your space.

a yellow pennant sign with tassel trim. On it there is a black circle with trees, hills, and the words 'get lost' in it.

£12.00, HelloDodo

I won't lie to you, I mainly put this one in because it actually made me LOL when I saw it, and the mustard colour and Americana vibe just reeled me in further. Obviously this is a great addition to a travel gallery wall or a child's bedroom, but I like that it could be used as a not-so-subtle sign when you need your own space. If this isn't quite your thing, the shop offers lots more punny pennant hangings and tote bags, such as 'Who run the world? Gulls'.

£8.00, MeganPughArt

Felt sculptures fascinate me and Etsy is a veritable zoo of ornamental fluffy friends, so whatever your favourite creature, I bet it will be featured. Personally I think you should p-p-p-pick up one of these penguins, they're so sweet and you can choose the colour of the scarf. As they are chicks they'll make lovely gift for expectant or new families.

That's my homeware gift guide all wrapped up, check back next week when I'll be sharing my top picks for pet gifts!
