Christmas has landed at Polly and Me!!!

It is one of our favourite seasons as we get to create so many wonderful pieces! From our handwritten gift tags to creating beautiful menus and place settings for the Christmas dinner table. But it doesn’t end there. Over the past few years our Christmas range has really grown and we now have some super popular products that are a sell out each year. These make great personal treats for the home as well as wonderful gifts for friends, family and teachers. 

Here are a few of our most popular. If you are interested in placing an order for any, get your orders in soon as not only do they sell out, but we need to allow time for personalisation in time for Christmas. Our last order date is 12th December for christmas deliver

Letters From Santa

Letters from Santa
letters from Santa

See your Childs face light up when they get a letter back from Santa. With their name hand written, a reindeer watermarked letter written on a type writer at the North Pole and signed by the man himself they are sure to get excited. 

Each personalised letter comes folded inside a Navy envelope, sealed with a wax stamp baring the initials SC, your child's name hand written on the front and tied with golden twine. 

This then comes presented in a white posting box, with stamps from the North Pole Sorting office, tied with red ribbon and a wooden Gingerbread man baring your child's initial. The address on the front is written exactly how the man himself would describe your house.

Personalised Cork Yoga Mats

Polly & Me HOMEAlexandra WhittemoreComment

If you have been following me on Instagram recently you will know that I have recently announced a new product which will soon be launched. This product is something I am super excited about as it resonates with a huge personal passion of mine.

My new cork yoga mats come with a range of wellbeing messages, or they can be personalised just for you, allowing you to be the most stylish person in class.

Not only will you be super stylish at your next yoga or pilates session, but you will be eco friendly with your mat too. The Polly and Me yoga mat is made from cork and natural rubber, making it an eco friendly mat as it contains no PVC.

If you haven't tried a cork yoga mat before you may be concerned with the grip that a cork yoga mat can offer. However, cork has the amazing ability for you to begin your practice with brilliant grip, and finish your session with even better! The sweatier your hands become, the greater the grip. 

Cork is also naturally highly anti bacterial, so no need to use any additional products to keep up with the hygiene of your yoga mat. To clean it, you just need water and a soft brush.

I would always recommend ensuring your feet are clean before stepping on the mat, but water and lemon juice, with a soft brush will do the job of cleaning nicely.

I have been practicing yoga for a little while now and I truly believe in the mental and physical wellbeing powers that this exercise has. I have been delighted to use my new yoga mat at my own sessions recently. It has made me super happy to have something so beautiful and unique to work with at each session. As well as being amazing on grip, hygiene it also helps me to enjoy each session more knowing I am using something which is eco and environmentally friendly too.

The fabulous yoga teacher, Caroline Inspired, has reviewed this mat over on her website. Head over there to take a look at what she thinks! 

These new mats are currently on a pre-order offer. Get your order in now to secure this amazing product at a low price!
I will also be making a monthly Donation to Surfers Against Sewage from the sales of the mats. 

A School Holiday Treat For Mum

Polly & Me HOMEAlexandra WhittemoreComment

The school holidays are upon us, and whilst we adore the extra time we get to spend with the little people in our lives, we also know it is totally exhausting too. So here I am with a reminder to take a little you time in amongst the chaos. I think there is no better way to do this than with a relaxing bath, a fabulous candle and a well deserved glass of wine. The Polly and Me candle range is the perfect addition to this set up, so let me tell you a little more about them.

I think there is just something really warm and inviting about a room with a flickering candle in it. Using candles within your home can create an intimate, relaxing atmosphere as well as leaving the house smelling divine. As well as the scent, decorating your home with candles can really transform the aesthetic and can add that extra loving touch to a room. These are the reasons behind my decision to launch a range of Polly and Me candles that both smelt amazing but looked the part too. 

I have a range of beautiful candles that can also be personalised too which make a lovely thoughtful gift for a loved one or can be purchased as a lovely treat for yourself.

Personalised Black and Gold Wooden Wick Candle

Our luxury, stylish candle comes in a choice of three fragrances as well as the option of your own wording designed in modern calligraphy.

Each beautifully designed jar is filled with eco friendly soy wax centred around a wooden wick. Not only do the black and gold look stunning, they smell truly divine and and the wooden wick makes a peaceful crackling sound as it burns, perfect for a romantic night in.

The three fragrances to choose from are Lime Basil and Mandarin, Pomegranate and Gingerbread.

Personalised White and Copper Wooden Wick Candle

Similar to our black and gold wooden wick candle, our white and copper candle stands beautifully in the home and is wonderfully scented. 

Again the three fragrances to choose from are Lime Basil and Mandarin, Pomegranate and Gingerbread.

Modern Calligraphy Wooden Wick Candle

Our modern calligraphy candle comes in a choice of two fragrances and you can choose from four modern calligraphy designs. 

The two fragrances to choose from are Lime, Basic and Mandarin or Honeysuckle and Jasmine. 

The four choices of phrases are ‘Be you’, ‘Be kind’, ‘Lets stay home’ and ‘Our happy place’. All the phrases are beautiful and make a unique décor for the home.

Each of our candles come presented in a Polly and Me HOME branded white box – making it the perfect gift for a loved one or a special treat for yourself.
