Tiger gift swap and shopping

Last weekend I met up with Claire from Claireabellemakes in Cambridge. We had a catch-up and tea, then swapped gifts we had arranged to buy each other for a gift swap. I had bought Claire a selection of local Bristol independent goodies, and she had bought up a huge selection of things from Tiger for me, a shop I have been wanting to visit for a long time after being tempted by their products on Instagram!

Tiger is a Danish shop a bit like Ikea, but it's like jumping straight to the end of the store for all the random quirky bits! It's great for stationary, art supplies and bits for around the house. *

What I bought/was gifted:

Pens that look like pencils
3D origami dinosaur wall stickers
A flouro pink bike seat cover
A bunny mood lamp
Paper straws
Geometric notebook
Cosy socks
A clip-on reading light
A cat clothes hook
Mini notebooks
A tea infuser
Magnetic pegs
Kawaii keyring
Candy coloured photo frames
Speech bubble stickers

It was so hard to cram all this stuff in my bag for the trip back to Bristol! I really want a store here :p Or a webshop!

Here's a picture of my bunny in his new spot - I love it!:

Have you got a Tiger near you? Have you discovered its awesomeness yet?! 

*I wasn't asked to write this post, and didn't receive anything for it. I just love shopping there!


  1. It is so funny because before we left London we came across a Tiger wondered around and though what a load of cheap stuff. Move to several months later and a Tiger opening up in small town Italy (Trieste) and we love it. We are jokingly even planning social gatherings there!

  2. Haha! I think it's great for little gifts and stationary :) There's some really random things in there (I bought a keyring of a person in a pig costume, his head spins when you press his heart?!) but I love weird things like that :D I would definitely consider a social at a Tiger too! They should get in-store cafes! x

    The bunny looks right at home!

  4. I turn him on so often he'll need new batteries by the end of the week! I suggest solar bunnies! hehe

  5. Ha the lovely Claire got me some of the pens that look like pencils for my birthday and I love them! Everyone is very jealous when I use them and they go great in my Filofax. I am a recent convert to Tiger and didn't know the store until we got one in Cambridge and now I am a huge fan!

  6. I'm a total convert. My closest one is probably Cardiff now though - Need one in Bristol!
