There is so much amazing talent out there that you know you’ll always find the perfect present for that special someone in your life, whether you’re on the lookout for handmade bags, jewellery, home decor items or some lovely embroidery.

It can also be a bit difficult to shop for men upon occasion but finding something handmade will automatically show your recipient how much time you’ve spent hunting down the perfect present for them.

After all, who wouldn’t want something that no one else has and that really is the beauty about shopping for handcrafted items from artisan designer-makers – you know that everything is one of a kind and truly special, just like the person you are giving the present to.

Giving presents can be just as much fun as receiving them (some might even say it’s more fun!), particularly if you find that perfect gift that as soon as you see it makes you think of a certain person. So why not have a look around to see what amazing handmade items you can find? If you do, you know you’ll gain a reputation as being a really good present-giver – and people will really look forward to Christmases and birthdays!

Bird Houses – Handcrafted in Bali, Indonesia

Bamboo Bird House (Medium)Bird houses make absolutely fantastic gifts to somebody, whether it’s a garden ornament or just something to help complete a look they have at home.

Your Crafts Fair has a stunning collection of custom crafted bird houses from Indonesia that you can use to decorate the house and give your little friends somewhere to stay, as well. We pay close attention to the details of the houses to make sure that the bird feels as comfortable as possible when it makes claim to its new home.

If you are looking to pick up a stunning, personalised gift for somebody then our bird houses can be the perfect solution. Just take a look at the selection to below to find many unique variations. You could invite birds into your garden by providing special areas to nest. A bird house is an excellent substitute for a tree hole and several species would use it. Which one you entice will depend upon the place, the type of  bird house and the size of the doorway opening.

Try to attach bird house facing north and east, to stay clear of direct sunshine and the wet winds.  Put it in a place where it’s quiet and out of  reach of pet cats, typically between 2 and 5 metres up a tree or fence or even wall surface. Tilt the bird house ahead slightly to make sure that rain falls on the roof and does not go into the box. Put different types of bird houses  in various places around the yard. For example, put open-fronted bird houses low and hide them well in plants to attract robins and possibly wrens.

Show Your Support For Arts And Crafts!

Wooden CarvingsThere’s a real resurgence in the UK and beyond for the arts and crafts movement at the moment, with people keen to invest in beautifully made pieces for their home or as presents for friends and family that are one of a kind and more special than the mass-produced pieces you can buy on the high street.

After all, you don’t want to fill your home with products that countless people around the country have in their living rooms, do you? When you buy wooden carvings or similar pieces, you know that not only are you doing your best to support independent designer-makers but you’re also purchasing something truly unique that other people are unlikely to already own… so your home or that of your friends will remain completely original!

These carvings make a great addition to any home and are made by the most highly skilled artisanal crafters out there, so you know you’re buying a quality product that will stand the test of time – unlike a lot of the pieces you can buy on the high street that might be cheaper but will break as soon as you get them home.

Whether you’re on the lookout for something decorative or a piece that has a more practical application, you are sure to find it made out of wood. You could opt for a lovely wooden calendar that can be used time and time again or a beautiful bamboo bird house, for example. Or you might be more taken with an abstract figure to put on the mantelpiece. Whatever you’re searching for, carvings look beautiful in any part of the home.

Cross Stitch: Perfect For Nursery Décor

Buy Embroidery PicturesThere’s nothing quite so exciting as preparing for a new arrival and nesting is a really important part of the process. Decorating a nursery can be lots of fun and if you’re about to start such a project to get ready for the pitter-patter of little feet, then you could buy embroidery pictures as the perfect addition to the room.

Cross stitch is a huge favourite among arts and crafts enthusiasts at the moment and you’ll find that these gorgeous little pictures made using this particular technique come in a variety of styles and depict a great number of scenes, perfect for either a little girl or a little boy.

You’ll find that you’re particularly spoiled for choice in fact, so might find it pretty difficult to choose just one picture for your lovely nursery. What’s more, they come in a range of prices so you’ll be able to find a frame that’s perfectly suited to your budget, whatever that may be.

It can be pricy kitting out a new nursery but the décor of the room is actually quite important. You want to make sure that you create a very peaceful space and pictures can really help you do just that, so make sure you choose the design of your piece very carefully indeed.

If you’re not a fan of cross stitch, don’t worry. There’s also a new trend coming to the fore where artists are using ribbon to embroider pictures, which looks lovely and would be a really different addition to any nursery.
