I have a bit of a ‘thing’ about wedding gift lists – so when a creative, thoughtful and brilliantly affordable idea comes along, I get excited.

Foodies especially will love this idea, but it’s equally perfect for those of you who aren’t blessed in the kitchen department (and we’re not talking toasters!) – basically all of your friends and family contribute their favourite recipe, and they’re all bound up into a lovely quality book for you to keep forever.

I wish I could have one of these… I’ve kept a few of my Grandma’s recipes but they’re floating around on sheets of paper I lose all the time… also, I have some friends who I imagine are secret foodies, genius bakers and health junkies, all of whom I’d love to have a recipe from! Other friends, I suspect, would sneak in a joke recipe or two – which would crack me up. A perfect, genius, all-round idea.


Hi everyone! Just a quick blog post for you this lovely Friday morning as I’m going to be out and about shortly. I just had to share these quirky wedding ideas for Save the Dates, place settings and other bits and bobs from the brilliantly-named Cross-Eyed Fox (based in Coppull, Lancashire). I think you’ll love them!

Owner Lauren got in touch to tell me how she started out selling a unique range of custom made and bespoke gifts and products. She’s exhibited at wedding fairs over recent months and is really enjoying creating new product ideas for weddings.

There are a few photos of items available from The Cross-Eyed Fox here for you to browse, but do go and take a look through the website: www.thecrosseyedfox.com
