We’re finally into the summer season and we’ve been lucky so far with the weather (fingers crossed!) so it seems like the perfect time to prepare for the perfect picnic! At The Nest At No.9, we have lots of goodies to make your picnic the best yet!
Firstly, we have several different rugs which are perfect for picnicking! The Recycled Wool Rugs (£16.50) are lightweight, colourful and great for rolling up to put in your picnic bag. Alternatively, our Tweedmill Picnic Rugs (£41.00) can be rolled up and even have a handle – what’s more, they’re waterproof and so comfortable! Both the Recycled Rugs and Picnic Rugs come in a range of colours to suit any picnicker’s tastes!
Next up are our bottle crates – they are so cute and come in a set of four. They are definitely summery and have screw-on lids to avoid spillages!
Thirdly, our range of napkins are very useful for picnicking. They are lightweight, easy to pop in your picnic bag, and just £2.95 for a pack of 20.
Finally, we still have a few packets of Beer Bread left and I think it would be just perfect for partnering with butter or jam! All you need to do is add your favourite brew to the mixture and pop in the oven a few hours before your picnic!
So there you have it – lots of ideas to get you picnic-ready this summer! See you soon.
Our very popular skeleton clocks come in two colours and are approximately 4ft diameter. They’re great for jazzing up a wall or for using as a ‘statement piece’ on your wall. They are made of wrought iron and need just one battery for power (which also means no ugly cables!)
I love both of these and can’t quite decide which colour is my favourite! They’re often in the shop, but if you can’t see one, just ask and we can order them for you!
Timbergram make the most marvellous of wooden postcards which can be written on with a biro and sent via standard mail! We recently had some of their new designs arrive at the shop, and they’ve been very popular! Take a look below.
Archivist Gallery create lovely greetings cards, match boxes and more. At The Nest At No.9, we stock their lovely Letterpress cards, as seen below.
Likewise, Archivist’s beautiful, premium match boxes are so unique and look brilliant on any fireplace or stood next to your favourite candle. They’re very popular and make a great present when put with a candle.
Our item of the week this Sunday is… Beer bread! New to The Nest At No.9, this glorious product is just perfect, not only for Father’s Day, but for any day, in fact!
The ingredients are all stored safely in the lovely hand-sewn packaging, until you decide to make your bread. All you have to do is add a bottle of your favourite beer to the mixture, pop it in the oven, and there you have it… Beer bread!
If you ask me, home made bread is the best kind. It tastes amazing (and makes your house smell delightful too). What’s more, the mixture can also be used to batter fish, bake muffins, or even to make flat breads. Fancy, eh? And if that isn’t enough to tempt you, the charity, hand-sewn Calico bags that the mixture comes in are all reusable!
Now you’re tempted, right? Come and see us in The Nest At No.9 to buy a bag and try it for yourself. It’s only £8.95!
As it says on their website, Dear Prudence was created in the summer months of 2010 by Scottish designer Laura Park. The designs are whimsical and naturalistic, appearing on greetings cards, gift wrap and other paper goods. Inspiration for their designs is often taken from observing animals, patterns, textiles and nature surrounding us in England.
We just love stocking their quirky gift wrap and beautiful cards in The Nest At No.9. Come and take a look for yourself!
It’s that time of year again – Father’s Day. But, don’t fear; we’ve got lots of gift ideas and cards to make it the best Father’s Day yet!
Cards We have a variety of Father’s Day cards this year… Below are just a few.
Scrabble Products These scrabble key rings (£4.95) and mugs (£7.95) can be bought in your dad’s initial or even your own to remind him of you!
Wall Art We’ve got some great wall art to surprise your dad with this Father’s Day. See below for some ideas and inspiration!
Beer Bread Lastly, but by no means least, is the brilliant BEER BREAD! This is new for this year, and I think we’re onto a winner! Available in a variety of flavours, the mixture just needs to be mixed with your Dad’s favourite beer, put in the oven, and VOILA – your beer bread is born (or risen!)
So, this Father’s Day, don’t be overwhelmed with gift-buying! Just visit us in Olney.
