New home, new homeware: Flamingo Gifts

Flamingo Gifts: Unique Gift Ideas*

After returning from travelling, Josh and I have settled back down into a new home, new job (for me) and resumed our usual UK lifestyle. For me [and probably for most of you too], a new home means lots of beautiful new homewares to make it feel mine. Cue Flamingo Gifts, a website jam packed full of cute bits and bobs to add a quirky touch to your home.

You may or may not know, but I have a slight soft spot for birds - had you noticed from the pieces in this post?! I even have a watercolour bird illustration tattooed on my back... so I really couldn't resist the lovely birdy gifts on the website. The Qualy Sparrow Serving Spoon Set is adorable - why not make boring kitchen equipment into something cute and quirky?! This is going to proudly live on my kitchen worktop, making me smile with every use. Following on with the bird theme, are the Qualy Duo Sparrow Keyrings. The little bird house can be mounted on the wall, giving you a his-and-hers key holder with the birds easily slotting in and out of the house whenever you need to use your keys. The sparrow keyrings also double up as whistles, because y'know, you never know when you might need a whistle! This would make a cute engagement present for a couple, ever-so-slightly verging on cheesy, but I love it!

The final additions to our new home are the beautiful, bright, geometric designs of the Abode Espresso Set. The cute animal designs against the white backgrounds can be mixed and matched, or paired up in their respective colours. Another great quality set that would make a wonderful gift, plus I love how they look reflected in my super shiny dining table.

Homeware has become the type of shopping I enjoy the most at the moment, there's so much good stuff out there! Are you like me and a sucker for cute, quirky but easy pieces to brighten up your home?


  1. This is so awesome; I bought an amazing storage set with those whale/deer/mouse prints on from TK Maxx and I love them but I had no idea I could buy more of it! Eee!
    I might end up ordering the birds too, as I'm so hopeless at hanging on to my keys!

  2. Such pretty items! I spotted the lovely Abode items in TK Maxx recently and ended up buying Abode egg cups for my friend :)

  3. Omgosh, I love those serving spoons! Cuuuute!

  6. These bird keyrings are so cute! I nearly bought some last year when I moved into my house with my fiancé, but totally forgot about them! Love them!

  7. Oh I adore them all! I love quirky accessories - the Alessi Cat Bowls are on my wishlist of home items x
