Shopping for Christmas taking up far too much of your headspace? We hear you. Look no further, then, than our carefully curated gift guide, which will point you in the direction of clever presents anyone would be delighted to find under the tree. Whether you’re searching for the perfect glasses for a budding bartender, the finishing table touches for a dinner party doyenne, or just the perfect coffee-and-croissant set up for breakfast in bed with your significant other, we’ve got you covered.

For the cocktail crafter

The festive season is practically synonymous with an excellent drink (or three), so make sure your loved ones are serving them in style by giving the gift of some excellent glassware. Our crystal champagne coupes are just the thing for top-tier toasting, and our wave pitcher and hobnail jug are simply waiting to hold all manner of enticing cocktails. Finish things off with our Ida coasters, which will protect surfaces while looking chic to boot.

For the flower fanatic

Planning to send a fair few bouquets in the new year? Make sure the recipient has something lovely in which to showcase them: our vases, big and small, suit every kind of household. A trio of bud vases would look perfect dotted along the mantlepiece of a bijou flat, while larger spaces are begging to be accessorised with our duo-handle vase. If you’re giving to someone with a whimsical sense of humour, try our paper bag or squiggly vase for an offbeat present that’s bound to impress.

For the baking babe

If your friend wouldn’t look out of place on The Great British Bake Off, may we suggest surprising them with a present that would make Paul Hollywood green with envy? A flan dish in sunny yellow will brighten their day, while a tart dish in clay will get plenty of use. Add a cake stand into the mix for displaying mouthwatering creations and, for an extra touch, don’t forget one of our baguette porcelain boxes – the ideal keepsake for anyone in a long-term romance with carbs.

For the dinner party devotee

If you’re looking for something extra indulgent for that someone special who just loves to entertain, a set of matching linens is the stuff dinner party dreams are made of – and our collaboration with Turner Pocock happens to be the last word in desirable. You’ll find yourself even further into their good books if you add in some statement tableware and, of course, some Christmas-hued candles to set the mood.

For the cooking connoisseur 

For someone handy with the hob, a bookshelf stacked with recipe books and a fair few designer aprons to their name, we have the solution: our cookware is a cut above the rest. Treat them to a set of chopping boards they’ll love, a selection of vegetable plates that play homage to all things fresh and seasonal, or a statement platter to showcase their dishes. And why not add in one of our minimalist mixing bowls? After all, the best recipes start with simple foundations.

For the early morning expert

Nothing beats an extravagant breakfast in bed, so make your loved one has the best – and hope you get to share it – with our Cobalt collection. The juicer makes the freshest OJ around, while the coffee mugs hold more than their fair share of rise-and-shine goodness. Finish things off with the egg cup and the butter dish (for what breakfast is complete without eggs and toast?) and you’ll be setting someone up for a very special morning indeed.
