Finally the days are getting longer, the sun has popped out a few times and the temperature is definitely on the rise.

This can only mean one thing- Spring is coming! With Spring comes so much excitement for us, the gardening season starts, we all give our homes a bit of a re-fresh, our wardrobes maybe need a few new additions and there’s Easter too. We wanted to share with you some of the teams current favourite things to get you in the mood for Spring and all things new and lovely!

Chocolate It’s not Easter without Chocolate, and this year we will be buying these fabulous Dark Chocolate Eco Eggs from our friends at Montezuma’s Chocolates! These gorgeous eggs are packaged in recycled card shells and sleeves and absolutely no plastic (and they taste amazing!).

Coffee A personal favourite of Sarah, our Brand Manager, is sitting outside on a Saturday morning drinking a decent coffee in the sunshine! We love Square House Coffee for their strong ethics and their passion for creating exceptionally great tasting coffee. This family business started the same time as us, and are just up the road from our HQ so of course we love them!

Gin At The Little Botanical we are an office full of Gin lovers! Our founders Greg and Morag have a Gin collection that would envy most cocktail bars, with an array of glasses to match. We are teaming up with D1 London Spirits soon, to create a fabulous competition, but before then we hope to be sipping a few G & T’s in the sunshine whilst working on our next range of ceramics and all sorts of other exciting projects we have up our sleeves.

Sleep We have told you about Secret Linen Store before, but we must tell you again! These guys really know bedding, not only ensuring the quality is second to none (and made in Portugal like our ceramics) but their Spring collection has just been launched and WOW- it is right up our street, featuring linens and florals and our favourite shade of blush pink.

So if you need a little bit of retail therapy, or cheering up we hope some of our suggestions might make you smile as much as they make us!
