With Christmas quite literally around the corner, now is the time to get your gift buying into full swing. There’s always a few people you’ve missed off the list, an extra teaching assistant to buy for at your child’s school or a another Secret Santa gift to buy. (Please tell me it’s not just me that this happens to?!) Just because Christmas is now within reach, doesn’t mean your gifts of choice need to be rushed, questionable decisions that you’re not quite sure if the recipient will enjoy. Bombay Duck are a one-stop shop for all your thoughtful and stunning Christmas gift needs, and what’s more is that they’ll guarantee Christmas delivery on all orders placed before 18th December. (But you can also get express delivery up until 2pm on the 22nd.)
If you haven’t heard of Bombay Duck before, then think of an Aladdin’s Cave, a treasure trove of wonderful, bright and gorgeous gifts – all in one place. These guys have an eye for the beautiful, fun and quirky home accessories that Pinterest lovers (like me) dream of. From cushions, side tables and welcome mats (to cover the bigger items in your home accessories basket) right through to photo frames, mirrors, candles and decorative pieces for the walls. But their key pieces for me are their trademark stunning tea cups and saucers, mugs, teapots and other matching tea-ware. It’s all just so quintessentially British, and heavy on the classic elegance that women of all ages will love.
Before I start showcasing all their wonderful products, I’ve got some great news! I’ve teamed up with the lovely people at Bombay Duck to offer all Lady Writes readers a HUGE 20% off their order (up until 19st December) – just use code: LADYLIKES20 at the checkout and you’ll receive 20% off your entire order! All that’s left to decide is what to buy for friends and family, and what to treat yourself to!
If you’ve seen the bloggers favourite Alphabet Mugs, then you might be wondering who makes them. Several places sell them, but they sell out so quickly because of how popular they are. Go direct to the source – Bombay Duck. The masters behind the trademark bloggers mug, this white and dotted beauty comes in every letter of the alphabet, so you can pick one up for multiple friends and give them something personalised this Christmas. Perfect for pretty much every female in your life – they’re pretty and practical – and for the bloggers: they’re extremely photogenic! What’s more is that they come in a beautiful pink gift box too. So even the packaging is done for you too. Usually £14.95 but with the discount code above, they’re only £11.96 – a great price!
If not the alphabet mug, then I highly recommend the absolutely stunning Alphabet Spotted Teacup and Saucer. In a variety of colours with every letter of the alphabet, you’ll have the most quintessentially British gift under the tree with one of these. I love cups and saucers – there’s something so traditional and elegant about them, and the alphabet letter brings a modern and fashionable style to an old classic. Again, they come boxed in a beautiful gift box too. Usually £17.95, with the discount code they’re only £14.36!
If you’re looking for non-alphabet teacups and mugs, there is also a huge range of traditional patterns, modern styles and many other beautiful options to chose from.
If teacups and mugs aren’t enough, then move on to the teapots. Bombay Duck have a HUGE selection to chose from and you’ll be spoiled for choice. I recommend the Miss Darcy Tea For One Set in Mint and Gold. A teapot and teacup in one – perfect for lazy Sunday morning’s reading the paper, and cosy duvet days too. These beautiful china sets are the epitome of ladylike, and there isn’t anyone who wouldn’t find them adorable – and practical too.
While you’re browsing, why not pick up a cake-stand too. Because with teacups, mugs, teapots and everything else you need for the perfect tea party, well…you’re going to need a cake stand to complete the collection. The Miss Darcy Two Tier Cake Stand is white with grey/silver dots – completely lovable and perfect for displaying all those cakes you’ll be enjoying this winter. Plus a beautiful and traditional cake stand is usually one of those things that every girl wants, but not many actually have. So it’s a unique gift to give. Usually £32, with the discount code it’s only £25.60.
If tea-ware isn’t quite what you’re looking for, then stick with the previously mentioned alphabet theme (because it’s a home decor style that’s BIG right now) and pick up a little extra stocking filler in the shape of one of the Alphabet Candles. Simple, elegant and a lovely and thoughtful gift for anyone on your list. With the discount code they’re only £7.60.
Or why not grab something like the stunning and gold coloured cast ‘Hello’ word to decorate the mantelpiece, or those spots on the feature wall? In a beautiful scripted font, this will compliment any space and make the entrance to your home even more welcoming. Plus, it’s the sort of gift that home decor lovers will adore. It’s totally Pinterest right? Plus it’s a GREAT blog photo prop! Usually £14.95, it’s only £11.96 with the discount code.
While we’re on the subject of golden coloured letters and words – I’m a BIG fan of the wire words you can also get from Bombay Duck. I have the word ‘love’ and I keep it in my office because it matches the rest of my decor in there. It’s got that funky and edgy vibe that reminds me of neon lights, and it’s perfect for modern and traditional decor lovers too. They come with mounts and screws so you can attach to the walls too – just to keep it permanently on display too. A great and inexpensive cute purchase it’s only £7.50 – or £6 with the code!
So, I think you’ll agree that Bombay Duck are the online version of that gorgeous Aladdin’s Cave you once visited while on a weekend away, and have often remembered with affection. That shop you walked around and devoured every beautiful item in sight and wanted to buy it all. But this time you really can keep going back, and back again, to enjoy their pickings – because it’s all on their wonderful website.
Take advantage of this one time discount to all Lady Writes readers with code: LADYLIKES20 at the checkout and get 20% off your entire order, and you’ll be giving the best, most stunning gifts under the tree this Christmas!
