Gin and candles
No mother's ruin here – these super chic G&T candles are just the thing to soothe end-of-the-day nerves.
I’d personally love one 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, 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.
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 in Andover, 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. And, Muddy Surrey readers, it’s all online, so you can line up your orders from the comfort of your sofa. Make mine a Kir Royale! And I’ll have the candle too, thanks.
