Ikea Fillsta Lighting Series

As you can easily pay hundreds of pounds for top end lighting designs, it is reassuring to find cheap, but interesting alternatives, such as Ikea’s Fillsta Lighting Series.

Pictured here is the table lamp version, which is available in white or this more unusual orange option. It measures 27 cm in diameter and stands at 31cm high. It gives out a soft mood light. If you want a stronger room light, then the floor standing version is a better option. It is 75 cm in diameter and 78cm tall, but is only available with a white shade. The table lamps cost just over £20 and the floor lamp a little over £56.

Tatty Devine Royal Wedding Cameo Pendant


The avalanche of royal wedding themed products has surely reached it's zenith with only a few days to go until the event. Tatty Devine's Wedding Cameo Pendant is a standout piece for marking the event with a rare subtlety.

Pale toffee silhouettes of the happy couple stand in relief on a peach background mounted on matt gold perspex; a great modern take on a traditional Victorian fashion.

The beauty of the pendant is that it's not instantly recognisable as a wedding souvenir - only the date inscribed on the back reveals the identity of the two figures and the occasion it commemorates.

The pendant costs £33 from Tatty Devine here.


Royal Wedding Biscuit Tin


Royal Wedding fatigue may be beginning to set in but the tide of commemorative products celebrating the forthcoming nuptials shows no sign of abating.

The Royal Wedding Biscuit Tin is tastefully illustrated with a vintage-style design which would make a very nice souvenir of the occasion but better than that, the tin is full of delicious vanilla biscuits in a range of wedding-themed designs.

Belle & Boo Royal Party Parade Tape

MAINPOP_TapeRGB There's a palapable sense of wedding fever gathering momentum as we get ever closer to April's Big Event. Whilst a royal wedding isn't for everyone, there is a nice sense of nostalgic patriotism evoked by the occasion which this Royal Party Parade Tape from RTG favourites Belle & Boo perfectly encapsulates.

This whimsically illustrated tape in red, white and blue will make a great addition to all your packages and parcels in the run up to the nuptials - and great for taping down paper tablecloths if you're hosting one of the many street parties planned up and down the UK.

You can buy a whopping 66 metre roll of tape for £8.20 form the Belle & Boo shop here.
