Flowers, chocs and random gifts aren’t my partner’s style but he puts a lot of thought into buying Christmas and birthday presents. Since my birthday is on December 25 it’s a once a year chance to impress. This year’s standout pressie is this owl made from felt. It was made by Bingley designer Maria Zasedko of Inside Out and bought from one of my favourite shops, The Imaginarium on Haworth’s cobbled Main Street. Maria makes a selection of felted birds and prices start at £42 for a little wren.
