Easy to handle and recharge this handheld vacuum fits into every home environment and can be stored upright, horizontally or hung. It's compact too so you don't have to be worried about space.
This vacuum has been a god send for us for cleaning up after Blake has eaten so we no longer have to get our big hoover out. RRP:£129.99

The Lavender House Gift Company was set up by the lovely Sarah to create unique, personalised gifts perfect for special people and special occasions. Each unique piece is custom made by hand, by Sarah. Each design can be created in your choice of colour and wording is fully customised. This gorgeous medium personalised heart button artwork makes a beautiful gift. The design comes framed in a white contemporary box frame, 25cm x 25cm square, glazed with glass rather than perspex. It comes complete with a hook on the back for hanging or can be stood up on it’s side. Your purchase will be beautifully gift wrapped in lavender tissue and ribbon, with a hand finished gift tag. If the artwork is going direct to the recipient, a message can be added to the gift tag at no extra charge. The piece is then bubble-wrapped and boxed. I totally recommend Sarah's designs, my photos really don't show how special and made with love this design is. RRP:£25
