Featuring the artwork ''The Orange Pencil'. A reminder to smile and not take life too seriously, a humble pencil under the nose is enough to brighten our day. Our posture, the way we move and our facial expressions all affect our emotions... so remember to smile and you will feel happier, stand tall and you will be stronger, and move gracefully and you will feel like a ballerina! Designed by Young & Battaglia. "Inspired by a psychological study on the ‘facial feedback’ theory of emotion, whereby people were asked the same questions with a pencil under their nose and without it, and then asking how they felt. They were happier using their facial muscles as, by smiling and doing certain facial expressions, you can actually feel happier..." Brendan Young

The Yorkshire Linen Company offer a handmade service, not surprisingly in Yorkshire. Their team can hand-make your cushion in a range of sizes and fabric types ideal for a perfect gift.
The cushion prices vary depending on the size you choose and of course the fabric, but they have a large selection of fabric colours and types for you to choose the best accompaniment for your beds, sofas or chairs.
As they are handmade the sizes are approximate but as a guide they are available in Small – 28cm x 28cm, Medium – 43cm x 43cm, Large – 55cm x 55cm, Rectangle – 50cm x 30cm. The price of the cushions includes – Handmade cover with zip – Cushion insert filling made from hollow fibre – Free fabric samples before you order.
What makes them an ideal gift also is the attention to detail they have included in the packaging to guarantee the cushions arrive in pristine condition. They are beautifully wrapped so you can just pass on as gift, saving you time and money on awkward gift wrapping options.

A Jigsaw with a Difference
piecedandquiet.co.uk is an artistic puzzle company which came about during Lockdown when they rediscovered their passion for putting together oddly shaped pieces and the importance of taking a moment for yourself.

Striking and exciting artistic puzzles, promoting mindfulness and a relaxing way to be creative for the puzzler whilst providing a platform to boost the profile of our talented artists. They want to help as many people as we can to take a moment for themselves during these strange times. £22.99

Personalised Champagne or Prosecco
You don't have to be celebrating to pop a cork! Though if you are, that makes this next gift even better!
Say it With Champagne are producing bottles (full size or miniature) of Champagne or Prosecco with a personalised label. You could say 'Merry Christmas', 'Goodbye 2020 or you could even propose! It's entirely up to you to choose your own unique message, photo or logo. The bottles arrive well packaged to avoid any breakages.
I love receiving perfume, but unless you can snoop around her bathroom or dressing table, it can be difficult to know what to get. Duty Free is often a good place to pick up a deal, but as most of us aren't flying anytime soon, keep a lookout at the likes of Boots and Superdrug.
My personal favourites are Chanel No 5, Black Opium and Alien if you need inspiration.
Many shops will be offering hampers this time of year. You could go all out and splash the cash on one from Selfridges or Fortum & Mason, or again why not support a small local business. Last year I went around lots of shops to build a hamper full of local produce, which is one idea, or shop around and see what pre-packaged hampers are on offer, such as this one from Delilah. https://delilahfinefoods.co.uk/collections/award-winners/products/award-winners-hamper
I'm more than happy to receive chocolate of any kind as a gift, but theres something nice about special chocolates as gifts at Christmas. Search for small independent chocolaitiers in your area for something different or unique. I found many including The Marshmallow Kitchen who produce some delicious looking treats!
You can support local and small businesses another way by buying gift vouchers. It' s been a tough year for many so buying a voucher now can help them stay in business. This could be for a restaurant for example for maybe a massage at your local salon or a spa day.
or Independent - Ye Olde Bell Spa
A surprise holiday is a great gift too! Booking you both a weekend away somewhere gives you something to look forward to. This year, more so than any, do make sure you read the small print and your rights if your holiday is affected by Covid19. Use my link https://www.airbnb.co.uk/c/tanyal6252. to sace to save up to £50 off your reservation with AirBnB
A subscription is also a great idea for a gift that keeps giving all year. I could be something like Netflix or maybe a years subscription to their favourite magazine either online or in print that is connected to their favourite hobby, for example BBC Good Food.
Finally, if 2020 has taught us anything, it is how important time with our loved ones is, so why not give them the gift of your time with a book of coupons you can write out and give them to use as they please. For example you could have a coupon for a date at the cinema, a night in watching his favourite film, food at her favourite restaurant...the possibilities are endless.
