Posh white ceramic animals are always popping up on mantlepieces in style mags, but while they look cool, they usually come with a ridiculous pricetag. So, it’s good to see Tesco (www.tesco.com) undercutting the designer shops with these cute but classy ceramic owl tealight holders, just £6 each.
And talking of owls, they seem to be having a bit of a moment interiors-wise.
Notonthehighstreet.com is a good place to start. My favourites are this handy tote bag, £8.95 from Snowdon Design and Craft; and these brilliant ‘A Little Bird Told Me’ personalised mugs from Disco Butterfly, both below. At £17.50 each, no-one is going to pretend the mugs are a bargain, but you can fit several words and the recipient’s name on them, and if you know someone who loves owls, they’ll think they’re a hoot (sorry).
I also love the Owl necklace and ring set from www.punkypins.co.uk, currently £9.60 (was £12), below, which makes a great gift.
Finally worth a mention is stylish website www.driftliving.co.uk which has several owl-y offerings, including this lovely black owl branch candle holder, £29; and the cheaper Rotary Candle Holder, £9, both below.
