The new season always means new ranges added to our already fabulous lines of gifts at Boutiko. This month we are really excited about the new recycled clocks and Burt’s Bees skincare we’ve just received, and there will be plenty more to follow.
A Short Walk is a company which produces clocks and thermometers from recycled coffee cups, producing pieces that look very much like slate and are surprisingly weighty considering where they come from.
They come in two styles, classic, with numbers 1-12, and Traditional, as above. There is also a clock/thermometer combination, which can be kept outside and, due to the distinctive face, easily read from the bottom of the garden! These are already proving popular, so why not get yours now as a fantastic and unusual Christmas present that’s sure to be a talking point?
Also this month, we are delighted to introduce Burt’s Bees to our skincare range. Burt’s Bees have been around for quite a while now, and you are probably familiar with the name if not the products themselves. The company strive to get as many natural ingredients into their products as possible, making them ideal for sensitive skins and babies too.
This Dopp Kit is especially produced for men and we think it would make a great Christmas present, especially with the canvas wash bag which will be useful for trips abroad and weekends away. The products have a subtle, naturally fresh scent due to the essential oils used, and includes ingredients such as calendula and soothing chamomile.
World Animal Day
On October 4th it’s World Animal Day, which will appeal to anyone with a love and concern for the welfare of animals around the world, especially endangered species. There will be all kinds of events to celebrate our furry/feathered/scaly friends and raise funds for animal welfare.
Pollyanna Pickering, wildlife artist, sums it up perfectly I think: “World Animal Day provides a wonderful opportunity for us all to celebrate the ways in which our lives are enriched by animals – and to support all the hardworking organisations which are striving to end animal suffering worldwide.”

Here’s my favourite animal, Coco, even if she is a naughty little minx sometimes.
Have a lovely month!
