Following on in our mini-series, ‘Presents by PENSON’, this week we’ve selected some of the best-designed gifts for the people you love most… from a ceramic coffee press to a dodecahedron sycamore wood calendar. These gifts will set your design minds racing!

 

YIELD COFFEE PRESS

Up first is the aforementioned Coffee Press – designed by YIELD, the stunning simplicity of the ceramic body and copper pull will give your morning coffee ritual a whole new level of appreciation…

COGNAC GLASSES

Normann Copenhagen brings us these amazing Cognac Glasses. Perfectly unbalanced, there is something massively satisfying about the tilted design of these glasses, and in the festive season to drink and be merry, they make excellent gifts…

CHEESE KNIVES

Cheese and Christmas go hand in hand… it’s the ultimate social gathering – wine… and plenty of cheese! With handcrafted textured copper loop handles and stainless steel blades, these cheese knives make a bold visual impact – something any design lover will appreciate…

GARMENT STAND

For the friend who has everything, the Loop Stand Hall from Hay is the gift that just keeps on giving! Despite being completely practical, and highly functional, the design cred for these is through the roof – a bold statement piece to be admired and used…

EAMES ELEPHANT

Whether used as a statement decoration, a toy, or a stool, the Eames Elephant makes for a quirky children’s gift this Christmas – we particularly love the ice grey, but the rainbow selection of colours on offer makes it hard to resist…
