Pastel homeware is very much on trend right now, and it's easy to see why when it looks this good.

9. Jo Malone's new reed diffuser for spring – it smells as good as it looks
We've smelt this reed diffuser ourselves, and to say we love it is an understatement. It floods an entire room with fragrance, and it's just perfect for spring. It will arrive to your giftee presented in a lovely box, and it's limited edition. This will last for three to four months in their home, too.

Anything from The White company makes a lovely gift, but we do have to say that this waffled robe would go down a treat. It also has shorter sleeves to make it perfect for wearing in warmer weather. Because coffee tastes ten times better when enjoyed in a robe, in the sun – right? It's also sustainable since it's made using TENCEL™ Modal which is one of the most sustainable fibres in the textile industry.
