I love pretty tins and I’ve noticed there are quite a few around in time for Christmas. So, I’ve selected two brands which I think would make great stocking stuffers!
First up is Yardley. With vintage in vogue, everything your granny loved is back on the scene, with Yardley being one of them. And their adorable Soap in a Tin makes for great stocking thrillers. You can literally smell them coming – be warned, the scent is quite strong, but you certainly have an ‘aaah’ moment when you unwrap them. I love the fact the fragrances are very traditional too: English Lavender, Lily Of The Valley, English Rose and April Violets all sit nicely in colour complemented tins. Great for sofa surfing, the tins have a waterproof liner, making them perfect for packing when staying round friends and family. And once the suds are gone, the tin makes for a nice trinket holder.
Yardley London Soap in a Tin cost £4.99 each.
Available from Boots, Lloyds and independent chemists.

Yes, you’ve no doubt heard about STEAMCREAM, I’ve blogged about it before, but I just had to showcase one of their limited Christmas tin designs as it’s gorgeous. This one is designed by Japanese poet and textile designer. Mako Kikkawa’s featuring her character Mathilde. With an ice blue sky dusted with soft snowflakes, it’s enough to make you feel as fuzzy and festive just looking at it.
STEAMCREAM, £10.50 www.steamcream.co.uk
