The year might nearly be over, but there’s still plenty of new stuff arriving at Peter’s every day! In this week’s Friday Favourites post, we’re taking a up-close look at just five of our coolest new arrivals. From dinnerware that’s perfect for summer, tape to give your Christmas gift wrapping skills a colourful boost, to gifts kids will love, there’s a little bit of everything in this week’s post. Here’s what we’re loving this week…
We admit, we’re kinda new to washi tape in the Peter’s Web Department. However, now we know about this colourful tape, we’ve been using it to add a little colour to…well, pretty much everything! Christmas gifts. Notebooks. Potted plants. Even our desks and walls!. Easy to use and so, so colourful and cute, we love everything about washi tape. It’s new to Peter’s – we’ve selected our fave colour combination above, but with so many colours and patterns to choose from, why not let yourself go wild?
Talking of wild things, f mealtimes at your place are a feeling a little like feeding time at the zoo, you’ll love Villeroy and Boch’s Bear Plate and Mug Set! Made from porcelain and decorated with a friendly bear face, the mug sits upside down on top of the plate to complete the picture. For kids who aren’t into mealtimes, this set is bound to have them sitting up at the table and paying attention. A roaring good time is guaranteed! Take a look at the whole Animal Friends range – there’s a monkey, a panda and a tiger waiting to be adopted too!
Also new to Peter’s this week is a whole new range of dinnerware from Australian brand, Habitat. These simple, sophisticated designs in blue and white are just the thing for summer. We love this mug in particular, decorated with circles and half circles like the phases of the moon. And so affordable, too! Click the image above to see what we mean. If you’ve been thinking about beginning the New Year with new dinnerware, you’ll love Habitat. Here’s the rest of the collection.
While we all wait for our Hogwarts letters to arrive (seriously, why are they keeping me waiting so long? I’m old enough to be a teacher!) this amazingly detailed, three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle of Hogwarts Express is the perfect way to pass the time! It also makes a brilliant Christmas present for the wannabe witch or wizard in your life. See if you can put it together without using magic…
We love Zuny’s range of adorable faux leather animals. And the newest addition to the range is one of the best yet! This super-foxy fox has a fluffy tail and mischievous eyes. He’s made from faux leather that looks exactly like the real thing and filled with iron pellets, so he weighs around one kilo. He’s the perfect bookend, doorstop, paperweight – or just a decoration for your home! Our range of Zuny bookends are a hit with kids and adults alike…and there are so many animals to choose from, you could start your own zoo!
We hope you love this week’s Friday Favourites as much as we do. Join us next Friday for the last edition of Friday Favourites for 2016! Also on the blog, we’ll have the next part of our Christmas Gift Guide ready to go.
