By

Here at Hannah Zakari we have no shortage of stars either! We’ve curated a selection of gift ideas for the stargazers in your life as part of our Christmas Gift Guide.

Hannah Zakari 2019 Christmas Gift Guide – Fruits and Flowers!

By

Christmas Gift Guide – jewellery, stationery, art and accessories inspired by nature!

There’s a lot to love about winter. Crisp days, snow, mulled wine by a roaring fire, and of course – Christmas! One thing we don’t love, though, is the loss of all the beautiful flowers and fruit that fill our gardens in summer. If you know any keen gardeners or nature lovers, they might be feeling the same thing! That’s why we’ve created this Christmas gift guide full of colourful fruit and flower themed gift ideas. Help them to recapture the vibrancy of summer with a gorgeous flower necklace or a fun pair of fruit earrings!

The pieces below have been created by independent artists, and a gift bought from them is also a great way to support small business this Christmas while getting your loved ones something really unique! In the run up to the 25th we’ll be publishing a few of these gift guides to show off our favourite pieces by indie designers and hopefully give you some fresh gift ideas.

Here are a few of our favourite fruit and flower pieces in the shop right now:

HZ Gift Guide – Secret Santa

By
Hannah Zakari is here to help you with our first 2017 Christmas Gift Guide for your Secret Santa!

December is nearly here, the festive songs are creeping their way onto our shoppe playlist, and our minds are turning to the season of twinkling decorations, good food and gift giving, especially the office secret santa!

🎄🎄🎄

Although we love Christmas, we know that Christmas shopping can be a daunting prospect. With seemingly endless choice and long lists of people to buy for, it’s hard to know where to start! It can also be a sometimes depressingly commercial experience, with a constant barrage of special offers on the High Street and the enticing lure of the online giants always present. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Hannah Zakari is here to help!

Choosing the right gifts for the people you care about can be a lot of fun, and shopping for them can be a great way to support small businesses and independent, talented creators. To help you on your way, we’re compiling some pieces by our favourite artists, jewellery makers and indie designers into a Hannah Zakari Christmas gift guide, starting with gifts under £10 for your Secret Santa!

🎁🎁🎁

To warm ourselves up, we’re starting off with a selection of small, cute gifts perfect as stocking fillers or for the office Secret Santa. At £10 or under, they’re a great way to get started on your gift buying adventure:

I hope we’ve given you some ideas for those tricksy Secret Santas! If none of these are quite right, you can check out our full range of affordable earrings, pins, patches, tattoos and stationery on the Hannah Zakari webshoppe now.

We’ll be putting together a few more gift guides in the run up to Christmas, so keep an eye out for them and shop indie this December!

Hannah Zakari Gift Guide – geek chic

By

For our third guide to Christmas presents, we turn to the cool nerds, the happy geeks, the pop culture fans and clever clogs out there. The Hannah Zakari Shoppe has just the thing for the space cadets, gamers and niche tv fans in your life.

The wonderful Hand Over Your Fairy Cakes are a great place to start when you’re on the prowl for a present with a geeky angle. We love the Sword of Omens pin badge (sight beyond sight depending on the wearer), the cute Zelda inspired Heart Container pin, and the amazing little Virtual Pet pin (all the charm of a Tamagotchi, without the upkeep!).

Hand Over Your Fairy Cakes

If you know someone with a bit of a space obsession (who doesn’t?), we’re a few different things in the Hannah Zakari Shoppe to stick in their Christmas stocking.

Mokuyobi Threads have a stellar range of pins and patches in the Shoppe, including the brilliant Space Mission iron-on patch. It’s amazing on a coat, bag, shirt or jumper, and strikes the perfect balance between retro and cool.

Space Mission Alpha patch

If your favourite space-fan is into jewellery too, get them an out of this world piece from Eclectic Eccentricity, designed by Lucy – who gave up a career in astrophysics to pursue jewellery making!

The I Just Need Some Space, Man necklace is perfectly subtle, as a cool little ceramic spaceman hangs from a brass chain.

I just need some space, man

Another gem from Eclectic Eccentricity is this outstanding Perfect Alignment Solar System necklace. The necklace features a set of vintage cabochons dating from the 1940s through to the 1980s, which were selected by Lucy for their similarities to the planets in our solar system.

Perfect Alignment Solar System necklace

Designer Kate Rowland makes a great range of brooches and earrings with a cult TV theme, and we particularly love the Game of Thrones inspired Winter is Coming brooch – ’tis the season…

Finally, fans of kawaii will love this little Kawaii Food Meal Planner by Asking For Trouble – it’s just the thing for New Year’s Resolutions as well!
