Creating a Perfect Voyage Stocking
Father Christmas seems to take a flexible and varied approach to worldwide stocking deliveries; he’s clever like that! For some, he leaves the stockings by the fireplace. But, for others, a pillowcase on the bed will do. In some homes, he takes a tipple of sherry, and, in others he prefers a large glass of milk. What’s never diminished, however, is his enduring power to leave even the most cynical people feeling a little giddy at the sight of a stocking bursting at the seams. As we age, the content of our fabric boots changes somewhat; gone are the Blue Peter Annuals and soft toys. Instead, we find smaller presents, perfectly wrapped, which leave smiles on our faces until after we’ve overeaten at lunchtime. To help Father Christmas and the elves this year, we’ve gone through the Voyage catalogue and circled a few items for our wish list. Hopefully this makes it to the North Pole in time!
A perfect fit for the boot of a stocking, our Dougal Granite Scented Doorstop would make an ideal stocking filler. Emblazoned with our beloved highland cow fabric, this doorstep is filled with wheat and lavender, which will release sweet smells into your home.
Hand blown by a skilled craftsman, our Coro candles are created using traditional methods. With a pinky hue, the glass candle holder features tourmaline swirls and unique bubbles. As well as being visually beautiful, these candles are filled with coastal scented wax, just perfect for emitting some fresh odours into your home after Christmas.
Also hand-crafted, each Caspian vase is unique. Whilst the vase is dinky in size, its bold and striking colouring makes it the perfect statement piece. Done in the style of the historic Murano glass and ready to be filled with flowers, this lovely piece will add a sense of sophistication to any sideboard or mantlepiece.
Whilst Father Christmas might need you to own a slightly larger stocking for this one, we’re confident any recipient would be thrilled to receive our Fleur cushion. Hand-embroidered, these 100% wool cushions are fun in design and rustic in feel. The Fleur Cushion would be a charming addition to any sofa or bed with marvellous mustard tassels and an abstract floral design.
