Pop by if you are in town and experience it yourself, or take a look at their constantly evolving website. You’re in for a treat; these are some of our favourites.

Damask Rose Reed Diffuser - £44

We are huge fans of diffusers here at The GWG. They make great additions to any room and we love how they subtly scent the home.

Claire Van Holthe, Amethyst Star Earrings - £180

These hand-made star amethyst earrings are a must-have. They would look beautiful worn casually in the day and so elegant come nighttime.

Colonia Eight VIII, Fig Eau De Parfum - £30

We are suckers for anything figgy and this handy travel sized 15ml roll-on perfume hits all the right notes.

La Soufflerie Piccola Glass Bud Vase - £20

These pretty bud glasses are hand-blown and created in Paris using ancient techniques. We rather fancy one in every colour, with a simple peony placed in each.

Imperium Laurel Candle – Limited Edition - £46

‘A crisp, invigorating laurel and rosemary blend’ - Delicious! We love the fresh green colour too.

Arangia Orange Bath Salts - £40

These bath salts would make the loveliest gift and we can think of nothing more relaxing than soaking in a warm, zesty bath.
