Surviving Winter


Temperatures are set to drop and the weather man keeps promising snow. Don’t get caught out this Winter, follow our handy tips below and Spring will be here before you know it.

 

With snow now a regular part of the British Winter, a good Snow Shovel is a must. Ours is so durable it will last you a lifetime, and is specially curved for optimum efficiency. A long metal handle with a t-bar grip and aluminium shovel is perfect for clearing driveways and paths to your home. Now we just need the snow to arrive…

 A Giant Log Basket is an essential item for any home with a fireplace, the larger the basket the more logs it can hold – which means the fewer trips needed to the chilly outdoors to stock up. This classic wicker storage basket with rustic rope decoration looks great in contemporary homes, and even has a handy section for storing kindling too. Get the fire roaring, pop your favourite film on and stay cosy on the sofa while the weather rages outside.

 Winter wouldn’t be Winter without mugs upon mugs of steaming hot chocolate. We think it tastes even better from our Enamel Mugs, which come in a sunny yellow to brighten up your gloomy day or a classic flint colour; both with a wonderfully retro Muscat pattern.

 Add some instant warmth to your home this Winter with a large rug. We suggest this Rugby Stripe Rug which will not only keep your toes cosy but also makes the perfect centrepiece to any room. We think it looks great on wooden floors or flagstones, but will add some interest to a cream carpeted room too.

 Make your home feel instantly cosy, simply by lighting some candles and casting some shadows. We love these Cornbury Votives, they look great on a mantelpiece in Winter, or hanging from a tree in the Summer. Try sitting the candles on a bed of rose petals to add some instant romance to the occasion.

 Winter is a great time for spending time in the kitchen, whipping up some puddings or baked treats. With the rain sheeting down outside, it’s a great activity for keeping children entertained. Cookies are always a quick win, easy to make and quick to bake – particularly useful when you have excitable children where every waiting minute can seem like an eternity. We love these Kitchen Cutters with a handy storage tin, you’ll never be rummaging around in the kitchen drawers looking for that small cutter again.
