Having trouble finding a nice gift for someone? There's a little store in Penshurst that may just have the present you're looking for. As you walk into Santina's gifts and home decor store, there's a lovely vanilla aroma from the diffusers that are featured in store along with a range of best-selling candles. On the walls of the store, you'll see pretty papercut art in neat black frames and cute wall stickers that would add a little to that lonely empty wall in your home. Enter the small enclave at the back of the store and you'll find retro toys and colouring books, look up and you'll see paper lanterns with the most adorable designs.
The gift that caught my eye was the little eggling. Made in Japan, this is a cute present that lets you crack and grow a plant in egg-shaped ceramic that comes with it's own terra cotta tray. After the seedlings appear and your plant outgrows the tiny eggling, you can transplant it to a larger pot of soil, using the cracked "egg" as part of the fertiliser. The store offers lavender, basil and wild strawberry egglings. Perfect for children and those young at heart. :)
Santina's also offers a wide range of stationery, watches, wallets, jewellery, clothes, glassware, fancy utensils and furniture.
