It’s no secret that I love London. And my adoration doesn’t just involve writing about the city and photographing its highlights. I also like curating my own personal collection of London-themed objects. From home decor to travel accessories, a lot of my belongings pay homage to the UK capital. If you love London as much as I do, today I want to share 7 lovely London must-haves with you.
There’s no better place to find pretty things than Etsy, and my inspiration comes from the goods they feature. So here they are in all their London loveliness…
1. London Girl Mug
The first time I came across this pretty mug on Etsy I nearly jumped for joy. I adore the style, font, and—of course—the words. Add to that the fact that you can have it personalized with a name on one side and it’s just the thing for a London girl. Get one here.
2. London Journal
I love this pink London journal with Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament on it. Given my obsession with the Big Smoke, it has great appeal. If you love discovering the city and writing, this is just the thing for you. It comes in lots of colors and styles, too. Get it here.
3. London Passport Holder and Luggage Tag
Since I’m constantly on the road (or in the sky, or on a train), having good travel accessories is key. Which is why I adore this London passport holder and luggage tag. With a nod to the city’s skyline and lots of color combinations to choose from, it’s the perfect duo for jet setters, road warriors, and any other traveler who loves London. If you enjoy a good journey, this is ideal. Get them here.
4. London Notebook
I love a good notebook for jotting down my thoughts and plans, so when I saw this one I knew it was just the thing for anyone who loves the city as much as I do. It’s perfect if you’re planning a trip to London or just want some inspiration for exploring the city. Get it here.
5. London Vintage Travel Poster
I love a good vintage poster, and one that involves both London and travel is just the thing to get me excited.

6. London Tote Bag
I carry my giant camera and telephoto lens around with me everywhere I go, so a good tote bag is a crucial accessory. I’ve had a London tote like this for years and I bring it with me whenever I leave home in London and abroad. If you have a lot to carry, it’s a great way to show your love for the UK capital wherever you go in the world. Get it here.

I love how this personalized print offers a way to memorialize a move to London or a love of the city.
