London Botanical Laboratories avocado and CBD 8-hour moisture fill avocado sleeping mask
Has winter weather stripped your skin of moisture? Try London Botanical Laboratories’ overnight face mask. This lightweight, creamy treatment contains anti-inflammatory CBD, nourishing avocado oil and ceramides, which support the renewal of the skin’s natural protective layer and defend against moisture loss.
After your evening cleanse, simply apply a thin layer all over the face and let it work its rehydrating magic overnight. You’ll wake up to hydrated, softer skin – and who doesn’t want that?
My Doris beaded lightning studs in gold and silver
Maybe it’s because they remind us of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust era, but we do love lightning bolts. Katie Williamson, the founder of Suffolk-based brand My Doris, is big on vintage-inspired jewellery – and these earrings are particularly lovely.
Available in gold or silver beading, the studs have a punky yet glamorously retro feel. Ethically made in family-run workshops in India, they’ll add the perfect finishing touch to your favourite block-colour sweater or Ganni dresses.
Stitch With Skye embroider your own tote bag
Yes, you’ve probably got 162 tote bags already (roughly). But have you ever embroidered your own? Enter, Stitch With Skye’s kits – an ideal no-screen pastime if you’re close to completing Netflix.
Choose from six delicate designs, including a sunflower, a fern and a rather nice cat in a flower crown. Each kit includes a roomy 100% cotton tote with the pattern printed on, allowing you to embroider over the top – plus an embroidery hoop, threads, a needle, extra practice fabric and easy-to-follow instructions (with links to video tutorials, if that’s your kind of thing). If you’ve got an hour to kill, you know what to do…
The Basket Room natural woven storage basket

Spritz Wellness Energise yoga mat spray
Yoga ranks highly on our list of favourite de-stressing activities. But it’s hard to embrace child’s pose with your face squished against a musty or sweaty yoga mat – which is where Spritz Wellness’ spray comes in.
Simply spritz this deliciously refreshing mist across your mat, then wipe away. Lemongrass oil offers an addictively energising scent, while tea tree oil acts as a natural antibacterial and antiviral agent (particularly useful if you’re easing back into in-person classes). Keep your mat as clear as your mind.
Piece and Quiet Indoor Jungle art jigsaw puzzle
If you exhausted your existing jigsaw supply over Christmas, invest in this 500-piece beautiful offering from Piece and Quiet. Designed by London-based artist Sophie Charnley, the puzzle depicts a scene that will look familiar to all obsessive plant parents.
As with all Piece and Quiet’s jigsaws, it also doubles up as a work of art for your walls once completed; just glue the pieces together and frame away. Ideal if you’re staying in this month to a) save money or b) avoid a certain Covid variant.
Marina B Designs C'est La Vie jumper
It might be un peu basic, but we really do believe everything sounds better in French. Fortunately, Leicestershire-based lifestyle label Marina B has us covered. These navy sweatshirts are adorned with roll-off-the-tongue phrase, ‘C’est La Vie’, in handwriting we wish we had.
Made from 80% cotton, they’re soft, breathable and will see you from pub trip to dog walk to sofa session with ease. De rien…
