Prezents are purveyors of the ultimate in fairy garden gifts. This week's blog will give you a starting guide with EIGHT items to open your mystical wonderland.
Firstly, let's start with infrastructure! You're going to need structures to draw peoples' attention.
In at number one, it's this fantastic, medieval wooden framed fairy door with regal golden ironwork on the turquoise door. It's available in brown as well as turquoise. This resin decor will survive outside and comes with a toothed hook for nailing to the foot of a tree or attaching to a wall.
Here's number two. You'll need to provide a roof for whatever you're hoping shacks up in your garden and we think this fallen pear house is the ideal choice. It comes with a colour-changing LED bulb and is a brilliantly whimsical adaptation to a piece of fruit!
Number three. See if you can coax this birds into your fairy garden with a unique hanging bird house. This pink flower house has windows, a perch and the perfect sized entrance for our avian friends. They all come with string for hanging from your chosen place.
Okay, so we've sorted you with a door for down low, what about this at number four? A fairy landing pad with a hook on the back for hanging high up. Let the imagination run wild and let your fairy garden visitors decide what's going into this door!
|In at number five is this water well. Whatever takes up residency in your fairy garden is going to need have a drink every now and then so what better way to provide them with water than this well. It's combination of stonework, used branches and a leaf makes it a charming piece of garden decor.
Now, what is going to live in your fairy garden. At number six, we've got the most popular pixies on Prezents. This loved up couple are the perfect pair to bring some characters into your fairy garden!
Number seven. What would a fairy garden be without...fairies!! This set of four charming little winged ladies is the perfect set of characters to live in your garden. Each with its own little trait they'll grab attention!
|Your eighth product is the magical tree ent flower pot! This mystical chap is the epitome of a fairy garden and probably our favourite piece in the range! You need a wise old fellow in the garden and this is the man for the job!

Prezents.com's designer Ian has picked out the Vintage Normende Radio as his favourite. He said: "They just look great. When we saw pictures I thought they were excellent but I never expected such quality and precision. The Radio is definitely my favourite. It's just classic isn't it? That vintage radio you always see in movies and on TV. I'm itching to get one for my record collection!'

We're quite confident that our creative team of buyers has successfully collected the perfect present for friends, family or yourself no matter what your hobby!
Everyone loves tea right? It's a staple of British culture pretty much the most important drink in the world.
Our office is often flavoured with the aroma of some classic Twinings breakfast tea. It increases our productivity, obviously.
With such a passion for tea comes an adoration for quirky, collectable tea pots.
Particularly the Canadian artist, Heather Goldminc's decorative teapots. They are made from ceramic and each one is individually hand-painted. They come in absolutely superb quality packaging making them a great gift for posting, too.
Shall we get down to it and show you some?
We'll start with the classic, English cottages we have. There's Bluewinds, Rose and, Prezent's personal favourite: Ivy. There's an image below for you to look at. The chimney is the lid for the teapot and the ivy-laden brickwork is the spout. Prezents thinks it's a really classic looking teapot that's perfect for Grandma's shelf.
It wouldn't be a range on Prezents.com without some animals in amongst it! This range is no different and we've given you a variety of animals to choose from. Each one with their own characterful features.
There are six for you to admire. The rest of them are here.
Our Greenman wall plaques are perfect for adding some character to the garden. Here we give you an outline of the Greenman and seven of our favourite faces!
Who is The Greenman?
Throughout the English countryside one can still find many ancient churches from the Medieval age: from small village parish chapels to vast Cathedrals and Abbeys.
Built by the master masons of the Dark Ages they sow the style and decoration of the age: the vaulted ceiling, the spire, the tower, the stained glass window, the tiled floor and the Gargoyle.
Originally an embellished water spout leading from a gutter, the gargoyle appears through out these churches, outside and in: high on ceilings, on the capitals of columns, at doorways, and on bench ends. Over the period they became increasingly elaborate and complex.
Faces divine and grotesque, mocking and humorous these are snapshots on the medieval mind which amuse and puzzle us still. What do these creatures mean? Why are such profane and grotesque images found in such places of reverence? There are many theories but few firm answers.
One of the most puzzling and contradictory of images is that of the Greenman. Seemingly this figure (usually just a face) emerging from leaves or made of leaves or even spewing leaves from an open mouth is an ancient pagan image, harking back to an age of Green Magic. Why then does he appear so frequently in Christian Churches?
The Greenman is said to embody the life force of rebirth: that after the Death of Winter Spring must return and bring with it the Sun and Growth and Plenty. The life of medieval man had few certainties and comforts: the longing for a good Harvest and belief in the power of the Greenman may well have been too strong for the arrival of Christianity to suppress.
Thus he can be found in almost every church in England if only one knows where to look.
Here are seven of our favourites!
He’s surrounded by birds and luscious foliage, he comes in FIVE different finishes, he is Green Spirit.
Oak is old, wise and important. Also, he’s green.
This chap, Green Leaf, is absolutely mad. His mouth is wide open and leaves erupt from his throat. What a character!
This lovely lady is the Green Mistress. The detail on the flourishing flowers surrounding her face is exquisite.
Green Woodland is a more recent addition to our collection and one of our most popular, too.
Another lady in this collection is Green Flora. Her painted lips and golden leaves make her stand out from the crowd.
Green Majesty is the royal representation here. He is also proper beardy, too. The trendy one of the group!
