2017 BIRD in HAND x House of Holland Sparkling Pinot Noir

Wine Me, Dine Me, Please Refine Me

This limited edition collaboration with fashion label House of Holland’s Henry Holland is sure to sell out. “This wine is all about celebration. It’s the perfect party drink; light and refreshing and to be enjoyed young.”

Sarah And Sebastian

Signet Ring

A foolproof gift for your sister, or your soul sister. This 9 carat gold signet ring will never leave her pinky finger once she slips it on.

Susanne Kaufmann

Beauty Advent Calendar

Christmas day is creeping up, but this beauty advent calendar is too fun to leave off the list. We all know someone who would appreciate this. The set contains ten glass vials for relaxing baths; bubbles, salts and a solution just for swollen feet which will soothe your body and restore your natural pH levels.

Slowdown Studio

Throw Blanket

Sonos has collaborated with Danish furnishing brand HAY in a limited-edition release of the Sonos One speaker in five fun colours from HAY’s 2018 palette. The sorbet yellow hue is our pick.


Cold Brew Coffee Maker

We’re at the beginning of iced coffee season. This cold brew maker is a coffee connoisseurs dream set up. And it’s nice enough to sit proudly on their kitchen counter.

Cinnamon Projects

Incense Burner

Handcrafted in natural solid brass and selected hand cut semi-precious stones, Cinnamon Projects ‘Circa’ burner will please your design-conscious mate.


Woven Bag

The basket bag has graduated from the Saturday farmer’s market to fashion-types’ summer staple. Loewe’s raffia tote has led the way with this trend.
