The Rose Press Garden

I came across this gorgeous business whilst at an artisan fair at The Pumpkin House in October and couldn’t resist buying our children the flower seed advent calendar. Since then I’ve had a look at what else Lizzie, the owner, offers! If you know someone who loves gardening then make sure you check out The Rose Press Garden

Maddy Illustrates

My love affair with this wonderful Norfolk business began after finding her at an event I stumbled across in Norwich a while ago. I bought Tom a Yorkshire map (he was born and bred near York). We loved her work so much that we commissioned her to work on Tourist & Resident and we are awaiting a large hand illustrated map to hang up in our office. Her work is amazing and her talent is incredible! Go check out her Instagram!

Norfolk Hampers

A great and easy way to spread the Norfolk cheer this season. Norfolk hampers offer beautiful wicker baskets full of Norfolk produce – either choose your items from their huge range, or let them put something wonderful together for you. These make for great crimbo pressies for any member of the family!
