Ten Treats for Your Home

Who doesn’t love a bargain? Now its curtain closing season here’s a little round up of ten decor treats to add around your home for under a tenner. If you’re feeling flush you could even buy them all.

You Had Me At Hello Mug | ASOS | £6


This enamel mug from ASOS will be great for a mug of steaming hot chocolate or a cuppa when you’re out dealing with all those fallen leaves in the garden

And One For The Birds | John Lewis | £7.95

Bird feeder

This is one to watch from the comfort of your sofa. Put this cake bird feeder on the garden fence, a couple of metres from the house, and watch out for the robins.

Copper Frame | Matalan | £6

Matalan Metal phrame

Metal rimmed frames are very ‘in’ and now Matalan has joined in on the action. Their copper photo frame is perfect for your 6×4 snaps. I’m also liking their Kate Spadesque stationery range too.

Alphabet Candle | Marks and Spencer | £6

A Candle

This scented candle would make a fabulous little hostess gift to take round to friends. I reckon it looks far more expensive than it actually is too. Bonus.

Fun With A Lemon Squeezer | John Lewis | £6

Lemon Squeezer

This is just about the most fun you can have with a lemon squeezer, great little gadget for the kitchen, separates all the pulp and pips and just leaves the good stuff! Old fashioned tip: spray the juice in your hair on a sunny day to blonde you up a bit as well if that’s your thing!

Long Box Of Matches | Selfridges | £5.95


I adore candles, not in a pyromania kind of way, but one candle is not enough for me. When I light multiple ones I always prefer to use a long match to save me striking lots of times and burning my fingers. These Archivist’s vintage-inspired box of matches have a gorgeous print on the box so are a great home decor piece in their own right.

Bear Cushion | George at Asda | £7

Bear cushion

If I’m in Asda I can never resist a peek at their homeware section as there’s always some items to pop in your trolley. I really like the shape of this Bear Cushion as well as the gold piping. They’re also embracing the whole letter thing too with their initial cushions (a little hint of Jonathan Adler there) and throws which would make an engagement or wedding gift. The throws are £12 – I know.

Feather Decoration | John Lewis | £3

Ceramic feather

A little random but I quite like these white ceramic feather ornaments. I think they’d look sweet hanging from a door handle or over the edge of a picture for a dash of rustic glam.

Copper Basket | Tiger | £5

Copper basket

You can’t buy online but Tiger stores are popping up all over the country, mainly in the Midlands and South, the nearest to me is Nottingham. New in is this copper basket which is a stylish little storage option for all the knitting I have started and not finished!

Glass Tea Light Holder | H&M | £2.99

H&M Tea Lights

It’s impossible not to mention budget homeware without talking about H&M. My daughter and love everything in there! These tea light holders would be spectacular scattered across your dining table or along a shelf.

So what little gems have you purchased recently to make your home cosy?
