Cox & Cox: Gifts Under £50

When it comes to birthdays and special occasions, I have had a lifelong habit of keeping to a style and beauty theme with the occasional notebook thrown in for good measure, however that's all about to change.  It occurred to me that just as I love to receive lifestyle and homeware gifts, others are likely to feel the same way!  Similar to when choosing a statement necklace, lingerie set or beauty product for someone, home accessories need to be chosen with the recipient's personal taste in mind though, or otherwise you can anticipate one incredibly awkward gift-unwrapping moment!

Cox & Cox is a homeware, home gifts and decorations destination that regardless of whether I'm looking to purchase, I browse regularly for inspiration and general daydreaming material.  They define their selections as 'unique, eclectic and beautiful' and I couldn't agree more!  Although there's plenty to admire on the website that could easily eat up your entire saving's account, there's also many pieces that could become a happy addition to any room without bankrupting you.  With regard to gift-giving, there's a helpful section titled '50 under £50' that is guaranteed to solve many last-minute present dilemmas and so on this lazy Saturday afternoon, I figured my time could be no better spent than sharing my favourite selections from this category at Cox & Cox!
Three Oval Gold Bowls, £45


Three Filigree Tealight Holders, £20


As you'll know from previous posts on A Glass Of Ice, I have always got room in my heart for a splash of gold and particularly when it comes to home decor.  With this in mind, it won't come as a surprise that my ultimate favourite is undoubtedly the set of three Oval Gold Bowls shown above.  The weighty bowls have the attractive appeal of being versatile, as well as unusual in their shape.  Personally, I would use them for holding and displaying rings in, as opposed to keeping them shut away in my jewellery box.

Velvet & Linen Cushion, £20

Supersoft Faux Fur Cushions, £45

Before entering the world of blogging, I had naively assumed I was the only girl in her early twenties who had their eye on every soft textured or unusual patterned cushion going.  How wrong I was!  It seems nearly every blogger has a beautiful collection of velvet, faux fur and embroidered cushions propped up around them and so it would seem sensible to include the selection of Supersoft Faux Fur Cushions in this Cox & Cox list.. don't you just want to curl up on the top of this tower of suede-backed cushions!?

Two Petal Dishes, £14.50

Three White & Copper Leaf Tea Light Holders, £20

To find more unique and beautiful items like these, take a look at the Cox & Cox '50 Under £50' selections.  Have a wonderful weekend.. and happy browsing!

With love,

Gabrielle x

  26. Hello Gaby! I love everything you share on this post (of course! you have an amazing taste:-)) but I am falling for the gold 3 piece tray set and the 2 silver flower dishes. I want to redecorate my house so bad but at the moment my better half and I are trying to decide what to do as far as where to live after we get married this year (yes! I am getting married:-)). We may either move to a smaller home or buy an RV and travel the entire country! So not knowing what the future holds for us is holding from re-decorating. I have enjoyed everything you have shared on your blog as far as home décor we seem to have the same taste. So thanks so much for sharing and you my sweet friend, have a wonderful week! XOXO, Jeannette

    1. Hey Jeannette, thanks so much for your kind words! The Gold Oval Bowls really are very attractive and redecorating can be so much fun - when I have my own place I can imagine how thrilling it will be to adjust the home decor to my taste :) Oh I had no idea you were getting married this year.. congratulations!! I hope you come to a decision on your near future's home sometime soon as I'm sure it'll help make you feel settled. No problem, have a lovely evening!
