Here at Maia we are delighted at the arrival of summer, and we have loads of new arrivals instore and online that we wanted to share with you!
|Titanium and Bamboo Radio Alarm Clock|
Wake up to the sounds of summer with this stylish radio alarm clock.
We love the light mornings, and it is definitely easier to get out of bed when the sun is already up, but we have to admit sometimes we still need a little help!
Programme your favourite feel-good radio station into this clever Alarm Clock and you will be dancing and singing yourself into the shower and beyond!
|In Bloom Daisy Make Up Bag|
Once you are feeling awake and fresh as a daisy, your next port of call could be this beautifully feminine Daisy Make Up Bag!
With a lovely sophisticated colour scheme and a design inspired by vintage seed packets, this beautiful case has a secure zip closure and is the perfect size for holding your daily make up essentials.
The shape and size also make this case ideal for carrying in your handbag for any touch ups you might need during the day. If you are lucky you will need to reapply your lips after a yummy ice cream cone!
|Woodland Jewellery Stand|
Once you are ready to face the day, don't forget to accessorise with some of your favourite jewellery!
Pick out the pieces you fancy wearing from this beautiful Wooden Jewellery Stand, designed to look like a bird resting in the grass under a leafy tree.
Beautiful jewellery deserves to be displayed beautifully, and this stunning wooden stand will do even your most precious jewels justice. It will also help chain tangles become a thing of the past, which as many women would agree, can radically improve your quality of life!
Picnics In The Park
When it's lovely outside you don't want to spend ages selecting different pieces to put together a sun-suitable outfit. These gorgeous vintage-inspired dresses are perfect for those days when you want to be comfortable and cute.
The Budgie Print Dress is our current favourite, it's so versatile and looks just as good with simple or no accessorising as it does worn with your loudest jewellery and most colourful shoes!
Grab the picnic basket, food always tastes better enjoyed in the sunshine!
Of course no respectable picnic would be complete without a nice cup of tea, so don't forget your thermos flask to keep your brew nice and hot.
We are loving Clippers Green Tea, and there are plenty of fruity varieties perfect for the summer time. We barely leave the house without our flask and at least a few teabags!
Most of us are guilty of choosing dark and 'safe' accessories, but the summertime is the perfect time to inject some colour into your life! This eye-catching satchel features a gorgeous Pheasant print on the bright pink cover. Less is more? Not when it comes to Pheasants!
A Drink In The Beer Garden
Whether you have a full day to enjoy the weather, or only an hour or two after a day at work, one of our favourite sunny day hangouts is the beer garden. While away a whole afternoon catching some rays and catching up with friends, or pop down after a hard day’s toil to unwind and enjoy some outdoor time.
|Birds Nest Wallet|
In our experience a wonderful afternoon in the sun can make us wish the day would never end. For those times when you are already ‘Out’ and you decide to go ‘Out Out’, we have some great accessories that will keep that summer feeling alive long after the sun has set!
Forget big, bulky handbags. For a good night out you don’t want to be worrying about lugging around a whole heap of your possessions. Pick out what you are really going to need and enjoy the freedom afforded by carrying a clutch bag.
Small in size doesn’t have to mean small in personality, as demonstrated by these eye-catching Clutch Bags. If you feel like donning a little black dress, adding one of these clutches to your outfit will add a little colour and loads of fun!
|Ampersand Compact Mirror|
Talking of only carrying the essentials, a good compact mirror is definitely something most ladies would consider a must-have. For checking your up-do is still up and that you don’t have lippy on your front teeth, this Ampersand Double Mirror is perfect. And it lets you know you are adorable too.
For ladies who love vintage style these 50’s inspired dresses are perfect for day-night transition outfits. This Toucan Dress could be worn to the office during the daytime, to the beer garden after work and then on the dance floor at night time. Keep it work-friendly with some dark tights and a plain cardigan or blazer, and then make it more personal in the evening by adding your favourite accessories and some statement jewellery.
Of course many of us take the opportunity to travel during the summer months, whether it’s a couple of weeks relaxing abroad or even a few months backpacking before a new job or semester. As much as can be said for travelling light, there are some things that are bound to make your trip go more smoothly, be more enjoyable, and more memorable too.
|Wander Travel Wallet|
The last thing you want to be doing at the airport or when checking into a hotel after a long journey is rummaging around looking for your passport, holiday money or other important documents. Take the stress out of travel with a multi-compartment Travel Wallet like this one. Not only is it absolutely beautiful, inside there are pockets for all the important stuff, as well as a slot for a pen and a pocket for all the interesting foreign coins that are out there waiting to be collected!
|A6 Map Notebook|
Travel is one of the most inspiring things we can do, and having a journal is a great way to ensure your ideas and sketches are recorded. You never know when something note-worthy is going to pop into your head! This handy A6 Sized Notebook features a vintage look world map design, and is perfect for recording your adventures.
|Daydream Weekender Bag|
And if you are only going away for a weekend, there’s no reason not to travel in style. This Daydream Holdall bag is just the right size for a couple of days clothes plus your essentials, plus there is an interior zipped compartment perfect for storing your valuables.
This bag also works perfectly as hand luggage when you are travelling by plane. We love the pattern print and detailing on the front pocket!
We hope you enjoyed our peek at some of our favourite summer accessories. These and many, many more can be found in store and on our website www.maiagifts.co.uk.
Now we are off to work on our tans. Ice cream anyone?
