Christmas gift inspirations and latest deliveries

l'uccello is over flowing with divine gifts and decorations as well as new stock from some of our favourite brands.

We have had a new shipment of Sophie Digard scarves. We think any one of these beauties would make a thoughtful gift.

We now also stock divine soaps by French perfumers Fragonard.
This iconic brand has been making perfume since 1926 and is still a family run business. 

All the way from the USA we have heavenly candles from Patch NYC. Made from 100% soy wax with cotton wicks and  hand  poured these beautifully scented artisan candles would be make  a perfect Christmas Gift.

If you are after a bit of vintage inspired Christmas decorating look no further than the delightful designs of Wendy Addison's Theatre of Dreams. We have been lucky enough to have been sent one last shipment before Christmas. These designs are all absolutely charming and feature sparkly German glass glitter and even vintage beaded flowers.

One of our new darlings Cotton & Steele has also recently delivered new bolts of fabric. They are so fun we can hardly choose a favourite.

And we have also been able to recently refresh our stock from Sajou, with a selection also available on our line store.
