I’m starting to get in the Christmas spirit. We all know that this year, a certain CGI penguin and his heartache is dominating a lot of the festive retail interest. But, other birds are available. And I have a fab giveaway in this post to add some very tasty tweets to your stocking, thanks to Hotel Chocolat.
If you’re a fan of all things avian when it comes to gifts, here’s some suggestions from me:
If you’re in Bristol, I think you should check out fabulous local artist Little Birdy. I love her animal and bird cards which I first saw in my local toy shop Jack and Jill, but you can also find her at my friend Fritha’s wonderful Bristol online craft and arts shop Tigerlilly Quinn.
I love this orange bird necklace from Ladybird Likes on Folksy. Orange is my favourite colour and I think this’d look lush on a black jumper background.
And on the orange vibe, I love this t-shirt from Dorothy Perkins. It reminds me of the colourful parrots we saw on holiday in Mexico, plus, in Bristol, parrots are always a good idea, just in case the need to go pirate strikes!
If penguins are your thing, this Matalan beanie hat is cute and looks nice and soft, and it’s only six quid!
My favourite bird, however, is the Robin. I love their quiet presence in the garden whilst you work, waiting for you to upturn the worms. I love their colouring and their merry little eyes. Hotel Chocolat have given me some delicious (and I can vouch for that, I ate mine in about 10 minutes) chocolate robin festive tweet chocolate gift boxes to give away. To win one for Christmas, enter via the widget below and I’ll make sure its with you in time to go in a stocking!
