Getting older. While it may quite literally be a pain in the back at times, it also comes with wisdom, experience and lots of happy times along the way. And so, it’s only right that with each passing year, family and friends gather to celebrate another 365 days of the life of someone special to them!
But how can we help you mark these major milestones in your families and friends lives? Well never fear, because we’ve compiled a comprehensive gift guide that’s jam-packed with perfect presents you and your loved ones are bound to love. Just remember, while growing old is inevitable, growing up is still totally optional…
Because a little fizz hurt no one – especially when you’re celebrating a special birthday! In fact, we have a whole range of wine glasses, perfect for any milestone birthdays. Lolita glasses make the ideal gift for those who love to sit out in the garden with a cocktail or two on hot summer nights. Just like fine wine, with age, we only get better! Why not pair one of these beautiful glasses with the Birthday girl or boy’s favourite bottle of wine to make their very own personalised gift set!
If the bright colours and super-bling nature of our Lolita collection isn’t quite you were looking for, then perhaps the simple and understated nature of our Willow Tree range will be a better fit.
The Calla lilies which are grasped by the girl depicted in ‘Beautiful Wishes’ embody majestic beauty and are a sign of love, closeness, courage and hope. The perfect birthday gift for a close and much-loved friend who appreciates elegant home décor, this keepsake can be treasured for many years to come. There are also many other flower girls in our Willow Tree collection, all perfect for birthday’s, so if ‘Beautiful Wishes’ isn’t quite to your taste, why not browse the rest of our pretty flower girls?
Heartwood Creek by Jim Shore:
Heartwood Creek is loved worldwide, with the collection showcasing artist Jim Shore’s inimitable hand-carved style, which blends the traditional motifs of American and European folk art with his trademark quilt and rosemaling patterns. His attention to detail creates stunning, heartfelt collectables and home décor items – making them the perfect present for your close one to gift with on their birthday.
Birthday Month Angels are perfect birthday gifts for Jim Shore collectors but not only! With one angel for each month of the year, every figurine is featured holding a butterfly in her hands with a crystal birthstone embedded in its wings. The skirt of the angel is also unique in that each item features a flower of the month carefully carved into the fabric of the garment.
A super thoughtful and unique present the recipient is bound to enjoy not just on their birthday but each and every day of the year.

If figurines and collectables aren’t quite what you are searching for, perhaps a beautiful piece of artwork from Sharon Nowlan is the gift that you have been waiting for. A thoughtful gift that not only captures endearing sentiments to share with someone on their birthday but looks great in the home too! The artist uses nature as inspiration for immortalising precious moments in life. For Sharon, it all started with a handful of pebbles; her son collected some at the beach one day and brought them to her in her studio. They were like little treasures and she knew she had to make something special with them.
Years later, Sharon is still using pebbles in her creations, carefully crafting them into framed scenes in a simple, yet beautiful style, that say a lot with as little as possible – the art speaks to the heart and is open to interpretation by each person admiring her work, making them a very attractive and highly personal gift.
And finally, if you’re buying for a child or just a big kid at heart, they’re going to want to get their paws on our brand new 'Corn collection from GUND. Taking inspiration from everyday animals and magically transforming them into mythical unicorns, the range features bright colours, soft rainbow fabrics and shimmering horns. Take a look at the Dazzle Slothicorn, Dazzle Caticorn, Glitz Pandacorn and Cotton Candy Turquoise Llamacorn.
Who said you have to grow up on your birthday? Certainly not us with these fun, frivolous and family-friendly furry faces!
