Gotta Have It
Is it drinks o'clock? Obviously a G&T would go down a treat. But while we wait for an acceptable cocktail hour, have a whiff of these Gin and Tonic infused Vineyard Candles.
I’d personally love on of these candles as a gift. They’re a bit more quirky and interesting than your average long burner, they’ll help me through those long hard days of dry-January *braces self* and they’re good quality: the glassware is fashioned from re-purposed champagne bottles and the rims are polished by flame to give a smooth finish, don’cha know.
If you’re more of a prosecco or merlot kind’a gal then you’re well catered for here. And the Kir Royale Candle keeps all you cocktail queens happy.
Now we’re on the subject of gifts and the ‘C’ word, you need to know about the candles’ stockist, La Di Da Andover.
If the idea of your average chain-store bun fight sorry shopping mall, brings you out in hives and you’ve been let down by Amazon one too many times, then La Di Da is a very viable option. Tucked away off the high street, it’s the town’s best-kept secret (and Muddy Hants’ Best Interior Store winner to boot), full of quirky, interesting gifts for all and sundry, from your awkward aunt to your hard-to-buy-for teenage niece.
The store is holding a Christmas Shopping Event on Thursday 7th December and will be open until 7pm. Leave the kids with your other half and zoom down present list to hand. With owner Steph’s help, the whole thing will be crossed off and you’ll be celebrating with a mulled wine before you can say “Beats Black Friday”.
