Give a 'Delivery' this year!

Bloesem Living | Not another bill 

Wrecking your brain what to get someone, sieving through tons of blog posts on gift guides for guys, girls, kids, moms..... Suddenly, a beacon of hope...

This year, instead of getting someone the perfect gift (we know, its tough) get them a subscription! The gift that keeps on giving (till the subscription ends, but by then it'd probably be time for the next gift, then it'd be a no brainer what to get).

Here are four companies that provide subscription gifts. It's pure genius, i like it and i think my headache about what to get just cleared up. Magic.

1 - Let's start with Not-another-bill ... it promises to introduce the recipient of their gifts to great artists, designers and brands.

All you have to do is tell them who they have to send the gifts to, and what kinda gifts that person would like to receive. That's it! ... would like to see our number 2, 3 and 4 too... click here 

Bloesem Living | Designerbox

Number 2 on our list is -  designer box - with 3 options of time to choose from, 3, 6 or 12 months, you get a home decor item for each month that you are subscribed. The collectible piece comes in a darling wooden box that is numbered. Helps you keep track of the number of items you have received but also just looks great as a decorative piece or for storage in your home. Love products with a second life!   

Bloesem Living | Nicely Noted 

For number 3 we turn to the world of cards ... born out of the love of writing and receiving letters, a Nicely Noted subscription is the perfect gift for a pen pal or stationery junkie.

With a subscription, your recipient will receive a curated collection of letterpress cards and stamps every month. I already have some people in mind whom i know would have a tiny fit of joy when they receieve this each month. *hint: mom*

Or choose a subscription from Hello!Lucky

Bloesem Living | For the makers

And last but not least - 4- is For the Makers ... while they sell materials as well as kits to create DIY projects, For the Makers also has a suscription package. For a low rate of $29 per month, you can get your super crafty, hands on, always-doing-some-kinda-project friend all the materials to make four DIY projects. They come in monthly collections and have tutorials, tips and techniques from expert designers to boot. Even if your friend isn't that crafty, this will take her over to the craft side. 

Which subscription would you like to receive?

Christmas Inspiration

Bloesem Living | Christmas inspiration

How quickly this year flew by! It's already December and before we know it, it's going to be Christmas and then New Years. Wow, 2014. 

Okay now that we are over the shock of how our time is secretly being stolen from us... let's move on to Christmas, more specifically decorations!

I know some of you who are super excited about this time of year, must have already gotten all the decorations up by now, but for those who haven't we are here to share some of the decorations which have caught our eye recently. Maybe you can get inspired as well!

This year, we've been bitten by the plywood bug. We are loving everything plywood, including christmas decorations!

Nice little wooden ornaments around the house, or even an entire wooden tree, a great re-usable piece.

Love the neutral quality of the wood, you can add whatever accent color you would like, whether it's the traditional green and red or just some gold sparkle for some Christmas magic!  What decorations are you loving this year? I know many families have a new theme every year, do you?

Kellie's new collection for BB+++

Bloesem Living | Buisjes en Beugels +++

From desks to the designs you see here, we believe you guys share our love for Kellie's (aka Buisjes en Beugels +++ ) design aesthetic. Her NEW homewares are off the beaten path and truly a breath of fresh air.

Right off our recent post on chopping boards, we have to say Kellie's design is definitely out of the box. The graphic lines and shapes of the chopping boards make them pieces of kitchen art!

Kellie originally started out designing kids fashion, with her two children as her muses and little models but with her origins in product design, it was a matter of time she came back to her roots! Along with her other award winning designs (In 2009 she designed INSEKT desk, in 2011 it was ready to be launched on the international market and in 2013 it became the IMM Interior Innovation Award Winner!), Buisjes En Beugels +++ webshop also hosts a number of guests labels.
