Celestial Coaster, £8, Anthropologie

The go-to destination for home bunnies looking for one-of-a-kind products for their abode, Anthropologie sell everything from unique furniture to kitchenware and décor. One of our favourite pieces though are these Celestial coasters that are made from clay, glass and glazed explosions of shimmering colour. 

Available in five different shades depending on who they’re for, our favourite is slate – a stunning mix of deep emerald green, lime and stark white. 

 

Winter Botanical Large Pillar Candle, £40, The White Company

Everyone loves a candle but there’s something that much more special about one from The White Company. For fragrance fans, this Winter Botanical Large Pillar Candle is a must-have that instantly fills the room with its warm, spicy scent. 

Designed with three wicks, its seasonal whiff is enhanced by a generous infusion of cinnamon sticks, orange slices and red berries that mean it not only smells good, but looks great too.

 

Astratto Set of Four Espresso Cups & Saucers, £40, Oliver Bonas

For the coffee lover in your life that undoubtedly already owns a state-of-the-art machine, you can’t go wrong with a set of stylish cups and saucers. For this we suggest heading to Oliver Bonas where you can pick up the striking Astratto – meaning abstract in Italian – set.

Made from bone china, each one is finished with a block print offset with a hand-painted floral design that’s inspired by 1970s Italian influence. We also love the addition of gold used to accentuate their handles. 

 

Cullen Wall Clock, £49, Made

A firm favourite among interior design fans, Made is a great place to buy bespoke or designer homeware that’s also pocket-friendly. One for the marble aficionados and those that are always running late, this green and copper wall clock promises to add a touch of luxury to any home. 

Made without numbers, the copper hands combined with the grey and green classic marble mean it’s a minimalist lover’s dream, while the Quartz mechanism ensures absolute accuracy that’s built to last. 

 

Eliza Bar Trolley, £349, Swoon Editions

Drinks trolleys have made a comeback this year as more of us take pride in entertaining at home. So, if your loved one adores bringing friends and family together for a tipple or two this could be the perfect Christmas gift. 

An ode to all things decadent, this Eliza bar trolley is made with delicately veined white marble and brass-painted frames while the castor feet and wine glass hanging rack mean it’s functional too

 

Herbarium Bee Incense Burner, £140, Gucci

Fashion fans will be well aware that Gucci launched its very own range of homeware earlier this year and, as you’d expect, it’s every bit as extravagant as creative director Alessandro Michele’s sartotial collections. 

While much of the range is on the pricey side – the most expensive being £21,000 – there are smaller pieces that mean you can gift your loved one a little bit of luxury without breaking the bank. For this we suggest picking up the Herbarium Bee Incense Burner that’s designed with a centre bee, an icon taken from Gucci’s 1970s archives.
