The Holidays are coming…okay, well they’re here and they are in full swing! You’re sitting down with a nice cup of mulled wine and then you suddenly remember….you haven’t bought a single gift! Fear not, the Nolcha Shows team have got you covered with last minute must haves from independent brands and designers.
1. O.W.L: This O.W.L watch design inspiration comes from looking at vintage field watches of the 1940’s. Looking at the styling of the airmen and ground crew, along with the vintage belts and tab detailing in the clothing, the brand have incorporated these aspects into the design of the leather strap of the Filton collection. The result is a contemporary watch with subtle detailing.
The watch comes elegantly packaged in a case that is brushed and polished finish, with a clean open domed dial. The perfect gift for any man in your life and the ultimate time piece! www.owlwatches.com/
2. Mrs Moore’s Vintage Store: These Alice in Wonderland notebooks are perfect for writing down memoirs, keeping track of events (for those who are always late for important dates, ahem Mr Rabbit!) and noting your deepest darkest secrets. Wrap them up in some festive wrap or pop them in a Holiday stocking! www.mrs-moores-vintage-store.co.uk/
3. Osea: This Osea protection cream is a stocking filler must have! This lightweight moisturizer hydrates and helps provide barrier protection against surface damage caused by environmental stressors such as extreme dry climates, wind and air pollution. USDA Certified Organic Algae, Shea Butter and Avocado Oil improve the appearance of youthful firmness and leave a matte, silky finish. An OSEA fan favorite for skin feel and scent. Also acts as an excellent base for effortless makeup application. www.oseamalibu.com/
4. That Socks: It wouldn’t be the Holidays without socks! Socks say a lot about your personality and are a real talking point, so why have boring socks? Why have socks that match? These odd socks have been carefully selected, put together and named with creative stories for extra awesomeness. These colorful and quirky odd socks from That Socks are a classic gift that’ll lighten up the Holiday season. www.thatsocks.co.uk
