Just throwing it out there, but Flamingo Gifts and Candles are my new obsession and I actually can’t get enough of them. I’m quite certain that you will have seen a little Flamingo candle or two in the background of most of my photos lately so I thought today would be a lovely day to introduce you to the Flamingo Gifts and Flamingo Candles – my new love.
Flamingo Candles are relatively new in the world of scented candles and they have burst onto the scene with their gorgeous flamingo decorated jars that are filled with the most deliciously scented soy waxes. They cost just £11 per jar which I think is reasonable for a hand poured candle that has a great burn time and scents the room really well. I have been burning Peach Splash, a delicate fresh scent with green leaf and sweet peach next to violet, rose, lily, jasmine, amber and warming patchouli.
The Flamingo Gifts website is jam packed full of great gift ideas, home decor and of course Flamingo Candles with a rang of great brands and something for everyone. I needed a gift for a girl who has everything and I stumbled across the Gorjuss range whilst browsing Flamingo Gifts. Gorjuss by Santoro has been a firm favourite of mine for several years, in particular the design Ruby. I find all the designs to be so ethereal and dreamy, with a message of love and hope running through the entire collection. I chose the Ruby slouchy bag as my first gift as I thought it would be perfect for the recipient. A lovely day to day bag that can hold all your bits and bobs, with a zip fastening to secure and beautiful detailing across the whole bag.
My second pick was another Gorjuss piece, this time a neoprene laptop sleeve with the We Can All Shine design. Ideal for students who are carrying their laptops around or if you are going on your travels where you need your devices to be protected and scratch free. Made for 13″ laptops and tablets, your device sits comfortably within the zipped pouch and the neoprene material helps absorb shocks.
Flamingo Gifts has a little something for everyone and with Mother’s Day coming up, I’m sure you will be able to find something for that special lady in your life. The delivery is super quick and there is a special postage offer with all orders where postage costs just 1p. Amazing.
Before I go, I must let you know about the brand new Spring Collection of fragrances from Flamingo Candles. Five delicious new scents have been added to the range and my lord, they are pretty good. Green Apple, Raspberry and Salted Caramel, Daisy, Rose and Marshmallow and Mango and Dragonfruit will lift those Winter blues and bring you into Spring. I’ve been road testing Rose and Marshmallow with base notes of sandalwood, musk, rose and orchid blend with fruity mandarin, cherry and raspberry and creamy vanilla, coconut and marshmallow as well as Mango and Dragonfruit; lily, rose and jasmine with fruity green leaf, peach schnapps, sweet orange, melon, mango and apple.
