    2. Some patterned towels that’ll give your bathroom a little upgrade. These are made in Portugal and inspired by traditional designs seen on the streets of Seville and Cordoba.

    3. A couple of ingeniously designed glass globes that'll water your plants on their own when your plant needs it. They're made of blown glass and have cork caps, so they're environment friendly, too. Just place them top down in your planters and let them do their thing.

    4. A tablecloth printed with colourful spring birds hopping and bopping about. The cloth is coated with a hydrophobic substance that causes liquids to bead up instead of absorb, meaning no stains or soggy spots. So not only will it bring cheer to your space, but it’ll also make post-mealtime cleanup easier.
