10 things for those who would like to be in London

Every time I go home I buy some presents for my family and friends.  I get something last minute and it’s always a selection of tea from Harrods and shortbread in a cute box from Marks&Spencer. When I’m asked to bring anything specific to London I get a little confused. Then I hopped on Etsy, a market place for independent artists and small business and found 10 cool things to buy as a gift for a London lover.  

1. London print £10+

London Style Guide by Saska Graville is a well know book about off-the-radar places in London: the one-off shops, street markets, corner pubs and local restaurants that Londoners themselves go to. These places share a certain eccentricity, quirkiness and independence of spirit.

8. London skyline laptop sticker £6

Laptop stickers of London skyline! There are many colours to choose from, but I think black is the classy and minimalistic. Material: vinyl.

(They also have other interesting sticker designs, this shop is in my bookmarks!)

9. Tower Bridge bookends £49.77

This is such a great idea! It looks like a complete Tower Bridge when you put books in the middle. I also like that it’s a handmade item by and it’s not from the shelves of a big supermarket.

10. London themed shower curtain £69.22
