Nine great Christmas gifts for adults
From chess sets to coffee machines here’s some perfect present ideas
With Christmas just around the corner the rush is now on to get those last-minute presents.
The kids’ stockings may already be full but if you’re struggling to buy something for an adult, we can be of help.
Featuring a chess set, pyjamas and a coffee machine, here’s nine great gifts you should add to your shopping list.
Suelo Pink & Blue Ceramic Plant Pot
Coming in four colour schemes, this plant pot raised on three small feet has a faded reactive glaze which gives each pot an individual, artisanal look.
Jonathan Adler Acrylic Chess Set
This 1970s-inspired chess set has pieces made from brightly coloured acrylic. It might be a bit tricky to play with, but it should win you points for style.
Cactus Cat Scratcher Tree
House-proud cat owners might be grateful for this cactus-shaped scratcher, as an alternative to the dreary brown towers usually found in pet shops.
Poker Face Playing Cards by Christian Lacroix
These intricately illustrated playing cards have a surreal design and make a good gift for people facing long nights in.
Pop Art Earrings
The Tate’s mismatched 22-carat gold earrings feature Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s soup can and the banana he designed for The Velvet Underground & Nico’s 1967 debut album.
Smeg 50s Retro Filter Coffee Machine
For those who have not been converted to espresso, Smeg’s colourful filter coffee machines, which have a 1.4-litre tank, make a great gift.
Hush Sheepskin Snug Slippers
These chunky and very cosy slippers are just the thing for slopping about at home this winter. They have a suede exterior and a shearling lining, making them deliciously soft.
Circe Lion Print Signature Pyjama Set
A striking lion print sets these pyjamas apart. The top is tailored but loose and comfortable, and the set is made from 100% organic cotton.
Crosley Topaz Velvet Voyager Bluetooth Record Player
Crosley’s vintage-inspired turntables are always impressive, and this velvet model is no exception.
