Gift guide: what's on our wishlists!
We definitely wrote this blog out of the kindness of our hearts, and not in a thinly-veiled attempt to drop a hint or five.
If you're a Mustard Made fan, there's a good chance we have similar taste! (Got a thing for color, homewares and independent retailers? Wow, us too!) If you're looking to pick up the perfect something for a special someone, take inspiration from what Team Mustard are wishing for this year. Or if you're our Mum, Dad, partner or Kris Kringle match, you're in the right place too. Read on!
Summer Candles and Candle Holder by Maison Balzac | Bobbin and Chubbie Grinders by Addison Ross | Oval Frame by Matilda Goad | Cosmetic Bag by Sage x Clare | Screenprint by Basil & Ford | Cushion Luna by Molly Mahon
Our Australian Wholesale + Trade Account Manager Alicia is a self-described "interiors fan gal" and she's currently building a new home! "Well, I'm not building it!" As a result, she's got homewares on the brain. "I have thought of little else than decorating recently so naturally my wishlist is very homewares heavy this year." Top of the list? "I wouldn't say no to a single thing in the Matilda Goad store, especially so, these dreamy frames! They're perfect to hold a cute photo of my dog Olive. She deserves the best!" (PS — so does Alicia!)
Heart Print Dungarees by Dotty Dungarees | How Wonderful Life Is Print by Yaya Studio | Orange Multi Hue Plate by Aida Shoreditch | Cocktail Cushion by Colours of Arley | Kids Cultery by Matilda Goad | Lamp by Mattina Moderna | The Little Book of Words That Matter by Molly Meg
Co-founder Jess has her eye on some "colorful homewares for our new home, which is currently a building site!" It's nice to have a few special pieces aside, ready for move-in day. This year she's dreaming of Colours of Arley cushions. "I have always had a bit of obsession with cushions, we definitely have too many in our home but the more the merrier in my eyes and I am super into the color clash in their designs!" Just like Becca, Jess has a few teeny tiny pieces for her daughter Poppy on her wishlist, too. After all, giving is almost as much fun as receiving!
Strawberry Bag by Baggu | Chinese-ish Cookbook by Rosheen Kaul and Joanna Hu | Lemon Candle by Nonnas Grocer | Honeydew Hoops by A Composition | Carafe & Glass by Maison Balzac | Complexion Duo Luminate by Eye of Horus | Tomato Lounge Short by Variety Hour
Graphic Designer extraordinaire Amy is our unofficial sustainability hero, helping us to keep our Australian office nice and eco-friendly. So it's no surprise that she says "I always try and pick gifts (for myself or others!) from small and sustainable businesses. I try my best to support them around this time of year!" Pride of place on her wishlist is the Chinese-ish cookbook. "I'm a big foodie and love cooking up new things in the kitchen." Yum!
Our Senior Merchandiser Alex keeps the wheels (and the lockers) turning here at Mustard! On his wishlist this year are a few "fun pieces to liven up my London rental after all the Christmas decorations come down!" If he had to choose, his top pick is the Vitra Chair Print. "I have a blank space in my hallway which is crying out for a framed pic!"
Curve Lamp by Norsu | Athletic Sandals by Radical Yes | Sage & Chalk Towels from Baina | Wine Glasses by Maison Balzac | Solis Earrings by Kirstin Ash | Kids Bike by HipKids | Kids Socks by Baggu | Penguin Crush by The Crush Series
Co-founder Becca has just moved into a new home and she's ready to style it up! She says "Our new place is in a very leafy, green spot and I'm a big fan of blues and greens in general, so I've got my eye on a few bits and pieces to fit in with the nature-inspired style of the house." But once a jewelry designer, always a jewelry lover, these Kirstin Ash Solis earrings have a special meaning for Becca. "They're three suns, and I have three sons." If you haven't already noticed that family is kinda important to Becca, some of her wishlist consists of gifts for her boys, like this cute book by The Crush Series.
Wholesale Hero Hannah has a gifting strategy, and we love it! "I always use Christmas as an opportunity to ask for some home bits I've been eyeing up (especially things I would never buy myself!)," she says. "Our flat is very eclectic and I will never stop adding to it!" Hannah has her eye on a lovely Florence Mytum vase "to add more color to my very colorful flat. I've loved her work for ages so would love to finally get a piece of hers."
