Gorgeous New Homewares Gifts for the Modern Abode
Today’s gift inspiration comes from Make International, creators of Designer Homeware. As we’re now well into November thoughts instantly go towards the mountains of Christmas presents to be purchased, and while all of these items would be very cool under a Christmas tree, it’s worth remembering Make International all year round; their porcelain designs are classic, yet contemporary making them a great gift for any occasion. The Make International collection is extensive so I’ve selected a few items from some of my favourite ranges, including ‘Biscuits’, ‘Word’ and ‘Punk’ … I hope you like them!
‘Biscuits’ is a nostalgic look at some of Britain’s favourite biscuits and cakes by Artist, Martin Wiscombe; fresh designs in pastel tones set on a cool mug created by Potter, Keith Brymer Jones. The ‘Biscuits’ collection has 16 designs depicting Britain’s best-loved biscuits and cakes. ‘Word’ created by Potter, Keith Brymer Jones uses classic white porcelain, which is stamped with a retro typeset and glazed in bright colours. Finally ‘Punk’ uses the classic style of the ‘Word’ range and adds a touch of punk spirit. Many items in the Make International range have won or been shortlisted for the Giftware Association’s ‘Gift of the Year’ so you know you’re getting high quality alongside the fresh, contemporary designs.
Featured gifts: ‘Biscuit’ Mugs, £8.50; Overworked / Underpaid Mug, £8.50; Set of Four Herb Pots, £35.00; Baby Gift Set – Plate, Mug & Bowl (available in boy and girl designs), £30.00; Set of 3 Tins: Biscuits, Cake & Treats, £25; ‘Word’ Cookshop Collection, pictured items start from £10 and Punk Bucket Mugs, £12.00.
