Shopping Local - Christmas Gifts in Hove
There's a lovely shop on Portland Road in Hove called Dragonfly Concepts. It's one of those perfect for gifts kind of places that stocks things from a smaller budget soap or bath bomb gift to stylish, pretty jewellery.
I decided to shop local for part of my Christmas gift buying this year and thought that Dragonfly Concepts would be ideal to pick up a few things for my Mum. I'm sure that from the images below you can see why I decided to pick up some things for her from there, their selection of gifts is expansive, given the size of the shop!
Inside of the shop there are lots of nooks and crannies with all sorts of different kinds of things to buy
Orla Kiely cups a-plenty!
Stunning local photography
Lots of bags, purses and scarves
Jewellery, body care products and some cute ducks
Liberty, Cath Kidston and Kirsty Allsopp floral stationery goodness
Plus check out these two chaps - adorable owl biscuit jars
I can't share what I picked up Mum as she reads my blog and it hasn't been Christmas yet, but I can show you something I picked up for myself - really couldn't resist this rose gold Estella Bartlett necklace, how pretty?
The Instagram pic doesn't pay it justice but lighting is so rubbish at the moment that it was all I could do at the time!
I shall be showing you the pretty things that I bought my Mum in another blog post, but if you'd like to pay the shop a visit you can do - the ladies who work in there are simply lovely, like I said before the gift selection is great, and it's away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city in the leafy Poet's Corner part of Hove. It's for sure one of my favourite local retailers and I really would like to thank Barclaycard for letting me treat myself and of course my Mum in this lovely little shop.
