I asked a family member for ideas for a christmas present - ever practical and very disinclined/able to spend money on themsleves she said they need some new white bed linen. Any ideas for some high quality stuff? ideally with beautiful packaging (shallow I know) so that it looks like a nice gift, rather than a household basic?
Over the years I have been given stuff from the White Company; it puts my other bed linen to shame as it is so delicious (even thought I've had for 4 years). Really great quality. Expensive though so depends on your budget. You could give some really nice pillow cases this year and a great duvet cover next etc. if you want to budget. I have a 15% off discount code if you'd like...
thanks SV - I know White Company certainly ticks the "nice gift" box, iyswim but I have some of their towels and swore I'd never buy them again as I think the quality is sub John Lewis (to use that great British bench mark!). maybe they have improved, or maybe the bed linen always was good
We've gone with the White Company before and did get some really nice bed linen. I have also always been fond of the stuff Yorkshire Linen. Think it is worth making a really considered purchase here and you can pick up good luxury stiff relatively cheap, e.g. this stuff on sale from yorkshire linen www.yorkshirelinen.com/offer-of-the-week.html
You could try Achica, they're a site sporting luxury brands, and I just found them through a friend who was telling me about discounts they've got at the mo. I just got a £50 discount, which I'm pretty happy about www.peerindex.com/vip/achica
sorry to hijack this thread, but i'm also looking for really nice bedding, but not in white! i wish that white company had other colours ideally, i would like a brown and turquoise set, but can't find one anywhere (had a lovely set from john lewis, but it really needs replacing)
White Company do have some non-white bedding... and I absolutely agree that theirs is head and shoulders above anything else we have had in terms of feel and durability. Definitely worth waiting for sales and/or discount vouchers, though. Other than that the top end John Lewis stuff is nice.
I had the same issue a few months ago when I was doing up my little ones play room. we found some useful information on www.cashmere-blanket.co.uk. good advice on how to buy, what to buy and how to look after your blankets, a factor that puts many people off buying them. Take a look and see what you think! x
I didn't even know about half of the shops that have been recommended on here. I love some of the duvet cover sets on the Victoria Linen website but sadly most are out of my price range. I bought a beautiful duvet cover from here recently www.yorkshirelinen.com I hadn't heard of them before but they have some high street shops. Anyway, the quality is great, it washes really well and best of all it was cheap.
