Little spoons make great gifts

Karen asked some customers what they would include in the top 10, and Brad has said that he loves these little spoons. We have a great selection of lovely spoons, but these seem to be a favourite. Great for salt, sugar, or even mustard or condiments, these make great little gifts, especially when paired with a little bowl.

The fabulous Sharky Brush for the beach goer

We love a good quality brush here at Verde, and this is one of our favourites. Our new 'sharky' brush clips onto your beach bag, and when you're ready to get back into the car or shack, use to brush off the sand off your feet and legs. So practical and gorgeous. Made in Germany from FSC beech wood and light horse hair.

Can't go past our EST natural handmade soap balls

Another lovely customer, Ness, suggested we include our lovely natural handmade soap balls in our top 10. These are a favourite of ours and would always be in our top 10 for  customers. They smell divine, are all natural, made from olive oil and first grade essential oils, they last a long time, especially if you keep them dry when not in use. They make a great little gift, perfect paired with a face washer or hand towel.

We have these beautiful seaside prints, finished in a textured oil paint style, and framed in oak, they are the complement to any space. The impressionist influence of the print evokes a sense of timeless style, while the subject itself suggests the calming feeling of being near the coast. Perfect for featuring in a living space or bedroom. We have three to choose from and they look fabulous all hung in a line together either vertically or horizontally!
