Spring has certainly sprung but that doesn't mean you are prepared. If you're anything like us, we saw the sun and went full steam ahead without thinking of those all important house warming gifts, or the perfect spring accessory to go with our new outfit! Obviously Spring doesn't mean you have to buy new things, but after making it through the Winter and those long boring Spring cleans, we think you really deserve a treat! So we've put together our favourite Spring Into Summer Must Haves for some inspiration. There's something for everyone and even things that are perfect as gifts, so keep on reading to get inspired.
So one of our favourite skincare brands right now is Seascape Apothecary. Inspired by the beauty of Britain’s coastline, all of their products are free from SLS, parabens, artificial colours and fragrances, petroleum and silicone - based ingredients, plus they don't test on animals! In this day and age we believe there's no excuse to test on animals, so those who don't we love to get behind!
With varied essential oil blends in each of the 7 ranges, Seascape delivers a subtle but effective aromatherapy experience, suitable for any time of the day or night. Their range provides something for everyone, so if it's a gift you're sure to find something they'll love!
We are so in love with their Sea Salt Scrub, the whole of the Soothe range and the Refresh Hand Wash for moving through Spring into Summer! Each product will leave your skin feeling pampered through the weather changes. Whether you are in the city or by the beach they provide that all needed care and attention your skin needs!

Now if essential oils aren't really your thing then maybe Organic House Skincare is for you! Once again all of their products are free from parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oils, silicones, sulphates, propylene glycol, phthalates, GMO, PEGs, TEA and DEA, they are also and cruelty free.
Their products are all natural and organic and have amazing anti-ageing, anti-inflammation and healing properties. Each and every batch is hand-made exclusively in the UK and all their packaging is environmentally friendly, making them even more of a reason to invest in!
Each item we've chosen is so perfect to help you relax but to also help you prep your skin for a long day or night out. Our top favourite of the lot right now has to be the Clean and Bright Morning Cleanser, as it really leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed, ready for the day ahead. Organic House Skincare also offer a range of gift sets, making their products the perfect gift.

Now Neve's Bees is new on the scene for us but we have totally fallen for their products and even the story behind the brand. It started from Neve asking her Grandad for a hive for her birthday after finding out that bees made honey and the rest is history. Each of their products are made from 100% natural ingredients and they are organic wherever possible. They obviously all feature Neve's amazing bees wax and each product is handmade with care in their hometown.
Bees wax is amazing for soothing and moisturising our skin and this is why these products are perfect as the weather changes. Here in the UK the weather is extremely temperamental, we can go from high 20's to then drop down to single figures within days of each other. This dramatic change in heat can be one of the things that can really have an affect on our skin, causing it to dry out and crack which ultimately can make it become sore. So we like to make sure our skin is given some well needed TLC in these times and bees wax is perfect for the job.
Lemon and Lime Lip Balm - £4.99
Ylang Ylang and Patchouli Hand Salve - £8.75
Bee Happy Lip Balm Gift Box - £14.75
Now accessories are such an important thing to help you pull your outfit together no matter where you're going. This season we just can't say no to beautiful natural pieces. Daisy Dumpling's pieces are all made using 100% cotton or Merino Wool wherever possible, meaning that each piece is super soft to the touch.
We are big fans of her baby booties! The design is so sweet, they come in a range of colours and as they are made from 100% natural materials, they really do make the perfect gift for anyone with a little one in their life. We are also currently going crazy over her beautiful wash cloths! Now if you're someone that doesn't use a flannel to wash your face or perhaps those you've bought previously are too harsh for your sensitive skin, then stop what you're doing. You need a set of these flannels! As they are made from 100% cotton they are great for use on sensitive skin, plus they are eco friendly as it means less wastage on items such as cotton pads to clean your face with. Now that's a massive win win in our books!
Organic Merino Booties - £15.50
Summertime Cuff Bracelet - £11.50
Washcloths/Facecloths - £7.50
If you live in the UK you know you can't leave the house and just expect it not to rain. It rains when it wants and when it pours it truly does pour and you don't want to be caught out with nothing to shelter yourself. Obviously many of us have umbrellas but is it sturdy enough to stand up even in tough winds? With our ecosystem under threat we should all be making more conscious decisions when purchasing any goods, even umbrellas! Buying the cheapest isn't good enough anymore! When you know the umbrella is going to break as soon as the wind hits it but you buy it anyway because it's not expensive, will not cut it.
So we are introducing you to your new umbrella that is well worth investing in! For over 200 years the Ince family have been manufacturing Umbrellas for home and overseas markets. They create beautiful pieces that come in a range of colours, so you can easily find one that suits you. They also work hard to source all of their materials from as close to home as possible from traceable, sustainable sources to keep their impact on the environment down. Ince even offer a bespoke commission manufacturing service and can tailor the design and style of the umbrella to suit your unique specifications.
Folding Umbrellas: Classic Colours - £85.00
