With only 52 days left until Christmas and a long list of gift recipients, it’s high time I got my shopping butt in gear. I wish I was one of those people with gifts bought and wrapped by August (especially when the inevitable snow storms hit and I’m left giftless and feeling guilty). However, I’ve always been a bit of a procrastinator. Although I love the feeling of finding the perfect item for that special person, I’m usually doing it under pressure. Major stress! That is until now. I’ve found the perfect place where I can strike off a few names from the gift list and truly enjoy the shopping experience. Pure Home Couture, is my newly discovered treasure trove of Christmas gift ideas!
I heard whispers of this amazing gem hidden in the depths of Hamilton and I couldn’t wait to check it out. On a sunny weekend, the boy and I made the hour long trip outside of London and we weren’t disappointed.
Climbing to an upper floor of an innocuous looking building, I was transported to the ultimate shopping experience. The space feels historic with a soaring beamed ceiling and wooden plank floors. Softly glowing chandeliers sparkle against dark painted walls creating a warm coziness and a relaxed atmosphere. Shabby chic armoires and painted tables display scented candles, beauty products and sparkling jewels. The whole store has a feeling of stepping into a french country dream you don’t ever want to leave.
Poking through the items found in every corner of the space was like a veritable treasure hunt. There are unique greeting cards, baby items, and dishes stacked among a huge variety of the most delicious home scents including Bergamot Tea, Cassis and Rose, and Blood Orange. My personal favourite, Vintage Peony, has already made it’s way onto my bedside table.
I absolutely love this store and even the boy was enamoured with the shopping space and selection. Neither one of us could believe that Hamilton was hiding such a fabulous shopping destination and I couldn’t wait to share this find with all of you. I promise that a visit here will help you strike a few names off your Christmas list and like me, you will leave with some Christmas gift ideas for yourself!
