It’s official, the Christmas countdown has begun! We’ve got our advent calendar at the ready, plus a whole lot of exciting news to share. So, pour yourself a hot drink (preferably in one of our mugs), and get ready for a festive season stuffed with new products, gift ideas and announcements.
We became a friend of Joules!
If you’ve been following our Instagram, you’ll have already heard our most exciting announcement of the year! Emily Smith Designs is an official friend of Joules. Friends of Joules is an online marketplace hosted by Joules, bringing together a fantastic collection of country lifestyle brands. Being a part of this community is a huge opportunity for Emily Smith Designs, and it will hopefully lead onto many more in the future. One of our favourite parts about running the brand is being part of the small business community and putting my heart and soul into each and every product we make.
In the lead up to Christmas, and as we have teased many times throughout the past few months, we have some exciting and all new products to share. The first is our new tote bag range! We’ve been working on a collection of luxury tote bags for such a long time behind the scenes, so I am so excited to finally share them with you all. We wanted to create a bag that is versatile and more than just your average shopper. The two designs each feature one of our favourite new characters, Oscar the Octopus and Jemima the Jellyfish, along with a gorgeous wooden toggle closure. They are made with organic cotton canvas and are perfect for the beach in the summer and Christmas shopping in the winter.
Our other latest addition is our range of cushions! This is something we have wanted to create for a while, and it has taken many months to perfect the designs, but we are so happy with them. As promised they are available now, just in time for the season of giving and feature a selection of Emily’s designs. Not only have we got Oscar and Jemima adorning these new scatter accessories, but also our most popular pair, Percy and Penelope Parrot!

Gifting Made Easy
We wanted to make Christmas shopping even easier this year, so we have produced a collection of specially curated gift sets. There are three gift set styles to choose from so you’ll find something no matter what your budget is! You can choose a mug and coaster combo, a cosmetic bag and compact mirror duo, or a full character set gift box. So, even if you want to treat yourself, you can find them all here. Last orders before Christmas is 21st of December for express delivery, and as with all small businesses remember to shop early so that all our elves can get out of the workshop in time for their holiday.
Finally, we have some really exciting new designs and products launching in the new year at Top Drawer, so keep your eyes peeled for updates on those! You can get regular updates in real time from my Instagram, so make sure you are following me there. Or, make sure you are subscribed to my emailing list where you’ll see news, blog posts and press releases as soon as they are available.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we are more invested than ever in making homes beautiful. We’ve been working hard to get you a full range of gifting ideas ready for you this season and we can’t wait to see everyone’s Christmas decor! Wishing everyone a brilliant festive season and a spectacular New Year from the Emily Smith team, and you will hear from us again in 2022!
