We’re having a heat wave…a tropical heat wave! Okay, maybe it isn’t tropical, but it certainly is a heat wave.  I’m doing my best to think ‘cool’ thoughts, which made me think of the beach.  Which reminded me – I have some great gift ideas in my SHOP! Summer is a big time for birthday get togethers, anniversaries and weddings. If you’re looking for a unique gift for someone special, check it out!


Newlyweds love to receive something  special that they can share with others. A gift that, when they use it, they are reminded of their special day, and the wonderful person who gave it to them. You can find some of those special items in my Shop!

For example – how about this gorgeous 2 TIER SERVING TRAY? Created in classic gold and white, it can be used with any décor.

Great Gift Ideas in My Shop

And when it’s not being used for serving, special décor items can be placed in it, for showing off!  I also have a beautiful SERVING TRAY that coordinates with this perfectly!

Celebrating any time of year, for any occasion, calls for a special beverage! Gifting this WINE BUTLER (or keeping it for yourself) makes serving friends & family fun, and stylish.

Just slip the Butler over the bottle neck, slide a glass on each side, and you’re ready! Comes complete with 2 matching geode-inspired coasters.


Maybe you have someone on your list who loves to decorate with art pieces?  These geode-inspired wall décor pieces are perfect, whether they like a little sparkle, or a lot!  This EMERALD & GOLD GEODE piece is perfect for adding a punch of colour, measuring 10″ x 10″.

For a more subtle, but no less beautiful, piece, you can choose the GOLD & WHITE GEODE.


Whether you’re looking for something small (bookmarks, photo cards, coasters, keychains) or themed (awesome beach themed dolphin, turtle), you’re sure to find just the perfect gift!  If you find something you love, but you’d like it in a different colour theme, drop me an email (thistledesigns@shaw.ca) and we can work together!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
