Christmas gift guide: for the home

Home is where the heart is and, for many, where we have spent the majority of the year. So why not add a personal touch with one of these stylish and thoughtful accessories for the home?

Art and Design 10 Dec 2021

Stack it high

The RE-OR candle is inspired by the stacking rings toy and is striking to look at and a playful take on modular design. Created by designers BCXSY in collaboration with David Giordano and good friend of Brummell Tony Chambers, former editor-in-chief of Wallpaper*, there are five different colour combinations to choose from and each hand-crafted candle can be configured in 48 different ways. Hours of fun for all the family! RE-OR candles, £45 each,


Rock and roll

For the geologist in your life (or that special someone with great taste), these sculptural bookends are a must. Moonstone agate bookends, £210,


Tick tock

Stylish yet practical, this abstract clock with swinging brass pendulum will liven up a living room or home office – and has the added bonus of looking a lot more expensive than it is. Levvy pendulum clock, £49,


The grapevine

Did you know that Brits pour 50 million litres of wine down the sink annually? Shocked by the scale of wine waste, award-winning British designer Tom Cotton created eto, an innovative (and elegant) decanter that also works as a stopper to preserve the full flavour of the wine over time. A must for any home bar. The eto wine decanter in copper: satin finish, £129,


A rose by any other name

Although minimalist in design with its silver-plated jar, the rose of Topkapi candle from Turkish-inspired online atelier Haremlique Istanbul will transport you to the romantic rose gardens of the city’s Topkapi Palace. Rose of Topkapi candle, £63,


Light up

​​Statement lamps have been all the rage in recent years. The spiky outer layers of the humble artichoke have inspired this adorable table lamp, with a rustic-style glaze and patterned shade. Smaller Artur table lamp, £129,


Flower power

A vase makes a thoughtful gift, with or without flowers. There are myriad styles and colours to choose from, but the elegantly simple curves of this hand-blown glass vase in a smoky amber hue will suit any home. Organic shaped glass vase in amber, £30,


Mirror, mirror

Why not splash out on a statement piece for that someone special with this fantastic Art Deco-inspired mirror with emerald green bordered glass panels. Aurora green glass mirror, £125,


House of Gucci

Gaga for Gucci? Why not incorporate the iconic brand into your home (or that of a loved one) with this luxurious checkerboard mohair throw which subtly spells out the House name. Gucci mohair blanket, £970,


Spill the tea

You know what they say, you can never have too many mugs. Especially when they’re as stylish and distinctive as the Kinta glazed ceramic mug, which has been responsibly sourced from a fairtrade supplier in Vietnam. Marble mug large by Kinta, £15,
