handmade touches to your Christmas

Christmas day is fast approaching.  For some this will fill you with horror and panic at the thought of what still needs to be done. For the more organised  amongst  you your main concern may be the finishing touches to your Christmas present wrapping.


At  What I Always Wanted we have a strong belief in keeping gift giving original and personalised and you will not go too far wrong.  With this in mind we have taken a few Christmas handmade ideas from our very creative designer-makers and made them our very own to share with you…..



These gorgeous personalised Christmas stars celebrating baby’s first Christmas can easily double up as gift tags and next year be reloved as a beautiful Christmas tree decoration.


Staying with the theme of Christmas gift tags being recycled creatively each year as Christmas tree decorations, from early October Emma, aka Bumbleblue, busily works away in her Yorkshire workshop hand painting this lovely range of  wooden Christmas decorations.  Each decoration is hand cut from solid birch wood.




The image of a lovely robin cannot but put anyone of us in the festive spirit. These little guys hand sculptured from metal are perfect not just for Christmas but will hang wherever you want all year round.


Finally, to ensure the big guy does not fly straight on by, grab his attention with this unique handmade wooden Christmas sign ……    



Happy wrapping !
