The nights are finally drawing in and indicates that autumn has definitely arrived. Never fear, with the crisper days and chilly evenings, autumn is a great time of year to introduce layers and cosy accessories to your home. If you are having a winter wedding hopefully these gift ideas will inspire you to add some cosiness to your gift list!


Always a popular choice for couples to add to their gift list and for guests to buy. A luxurious throw will definitely conjure up cuddles on the sofa and romantic evenings in! Cox and Cox have new stock of their fabulous (faux) fur throws made in the UK. Choose from snow fox, brown bear or wolf to cosy up to in the coming winter months.

Nothing beats the warming aroma of a scented candle on a dark winter’s night. It is such a great way to greet guests arriving for a dinner party or simply just to light to add that touch of romance. The ‘must have’ scent has always been The White Company’s signature Winter Candle but look out for some new arrivals from them this Winter season to liven up the senses! My Particular favourite is the new ‘Fireside’ votive, a mix of vetvier and aromatic sandalwood – just gorgeous! This leads us perfectly on to……..
