Gallery manager Susan Sherrit has selected her top gifts ideas here.

For Her

Adele Taylor rings (PICTURED): Hand textured silver oxidised ring with contrasting gold detail and gorgeous fresh water pearl. Price range RRP £200

Wallace Sewell scarf: Woven at a lower set, the lambs’ wool weft interlaces like a wicker basket creating optical colour mixes. RRP £44

Tom Pigeon earrings: These simple, stud earrings are handcrafted using layers of mint Formica and solid copper. Each pair is subtly mis-matched, super thin and ultra minimal. Form Circle Earrings in copper and mint. RRP £29

For Him

Tim Pigeon cufflinks: The Form jewellery collection explores simple geometry; arcs, outlines and solid shapes. We have the Form Cufflinks in gold and white. RRP £39

Lego cufflinks: We couldn’t resist these cute Lego cufflinks. We have them in blue, black, red or yellow. RRP £15

Brick Walnut Click Clock: Not only does this clock look stylish, it’s clever too. Just click your fingers, clap your hands or gently tap your bedside table and the time, date and temperature will alternately appear in red LED colour. It automatically switches off when the room is quiet, lighting up again when the alarm goes off or as a response to your clicked fingers or clapped hands, so no need to suffer from a constant blinking digital glow. RRP £42

For Kids

Rocket Roll: This clever little set has everything you need to make five amazing rockets, including rocket launchers and at the same time teaching kids about recycling toilet and kitchen rolls! £6.50

Doodle tablecloth: Made from great quality pre-shrunk cotton and with a set of 10 double-ended doodle wash-out pens, the doodle tablecloth means everyone can get busy breaking the rules by doodling on the tablecloth. And of course it all washes out afterwards! RRP £39.00

Great Journey Book: A beautifully illustrated hardcover book which follows a bird as it flies over to the other side of the world. Children will love to use the magic viewfinder to see some amazing hidden sights: acrobatic ants, a cruise-ship crocodile, factories in the clouds—even a monkey playing the cello! RRP £12.99

Gifts Under £20

Spend and/or Save purse:  A hand screen printed purse/bag for either spenders or savers. RRP £10.00
