12 Days of Christmas – Day 3

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock – jingle bell swing and jingle bells ring, snowing and blowing up bushels of fun NOW 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS HAS BEGUN! I’m not sure if anyone loves Christmas more than me – from frosty air, to steamy hot chocolate, to stockings hanging on the mantle, December is my favourite month. I spend months trying to come up with the best Christmas gifts for the people I love and then drive myself crazy trying not to spoil the surprises. The last few years, I’ve also spent months trying to come up with the best gifts for YOU! I’m so excited to have the opportunity to partner with 12 of the brands I love, and help make Christmas a little brighter for you, as a way of saying thank-you for your support, love and encouragement.  

On the 3rd day of Christmas Anara Design and I have partnered to gift to you an interior gift set. We’re including Anara’s beautiful stacked origami bowls, and shark tooth swaddle. The rules are simple; follow @langstonnatalie and @anaradesignco on Instagram, and sign-up in Rafflecopter below. We use Rafflecopter as the fair little elves who help us choose our winners. If it were up to Ms.Natalie Claus, she’d want to give a gift to each person who entered.

As most of you know, I recently moved into a new house – and I have been crazy about home decor. One of my favourite interior brands is Anara. With unique, modern one-of-a-kind designs, their products make perfect gifts and amazing homewares. I have seriously given the shark tooth swaddle as three separate baby-shower gifts this year (sorry guys) and also have it in my place as a throw on my chair.

Anara Design Company is a home & lifestyle brand focused on beautifully designed, well-made, hand crafted goods. Our private label of bedding & textiles is designed in-house and complemented by responsibly-made homewares and jewelry created by artisans, designers, and architects.

Inspired by Japanese minimalism and Indian craftsmanship. This cast metal bowl brings the angles and elegance of origami forms to your home. Use the Origami Bowls as a catch-all for keys and coins, beside your bed to hold jewelry, or as an elegant vessel to store clips and business cards. Available in two additional complementary sizes. 

The multi-use Shark Tooth Swaddle can be used as a blanket during playtime; to mop up messes in the house or outside; to protect and keep your baby warm in the stroller; and even as a scarf for mom (and her friends). The organic cotton baby swaddle gets softer and softer each time its washed. 

All of the textiles are all designed by the two co-founders here in Vancouver, inspired by the West Coast and produced by Anara’s artisan partners around Jaipur, India. They use natural dyes when possible, ancient hand-stitching and weaving techniques and each piece is carefully crafted with skill that has been refining for generations. eg. the wrap cloth was designed by Anara and hand-carved into a wooden block that was then printed onto organic cotton by 5th generation block printers.
The team is always keeping their eyes open while on the road for beautiful homewares and jewelry and their current offering is a curation from our travels in India. The designers we source from all practice their work ethically and sustainably. The products are created to last and bring rich stories into your home.

Ho Ho Ho, there are still nine amazing brands left, that means there are still nine special gifts for you! Stay tuned, I’m so excited for you to see what we have in store!

All my love,
