When it comes to finding presents for my friends or loved ones, I tend to get in a bit of a flap quite honestly. How about you? I place a high amount of pressure on myself to make sure I find something personal without overstepping a line. The present also has to be unique and I prefer to find something that will be of use to the recipient over a long period of time. For example, a beauty product to help them unwind after a stressful day / a design piece that will look nice in their flat / the latest book by their favorite author that they can introduce to fellow reading enthusiasts.
Therefore, it was a welcome surprise when Printworks Market recently contacted me out of the blue. Having never heard of them, I headed straight to their website and loved discovering their thoughtfully curated selection of lifestyle gifts. Upon reading that they are of Swedish origin, it was obvious as to why their design aesthetic appealed. If you have ever been inside my apartment you will have noticed that I have a soft spot for Scandinavian brands - our key pieces of furniture and accessories carry a Scandinavian label (#soblessed that JB and I have the same furniture tastes). But I digress...
The Printworks products are, quite literally, eye-catching: bright, block colours mix with classic, muted tones and fun patterns, which means that there is something for everyone. The website is full of beautiful objects that you can use in day-to-day life at moderate prices. The creative collaborations with illustrators - such as Cathy Nordström and Studio Löfström - and photographers particularly appealed to me. Firstly because I LOVE discovering new designers / creative profiles. Secondly because I like to find unique gifts for friends (see first paragraph!) But it's also a really FUN website - personalized stickers for your friend's iPhone, colouring books, coffee table games, kids' party accessories - with LOTS of present ideas!
So as I got to pick out some Christmas gifts for friends and family, it's only fair that you get a piece of the Printworks Market action! Between now and the end of January 2018, enjoy a 15% reduction with the code "louin15". Let me know what you think? And maybe I'll see which goodies you picked on line!
