Warming throws and cosy cushions are always welcome gifts. Ferm Livings’ tufted Loop cushion is an exercise in textural contrast, while Wallace Sewell’s woven Erno throw combines the softness of lambswool with a richly combined blues and browns accented with rust and gold.

Our trove of gifts for men has everything covered, from the functional to the decorative. Definitely falling into the former category is the limited edition U1-D men’s watch, a precision-tooled professional diving watch designed for everyday wear.

Meanwhile Material Immaterial’s concrete cufflinks offer a distinctive alternative to more conventional designs.

For house and home, Corkframe’s practical pinboard machined out of solid cork is likely to be a firm favourite. But if you prefer less ephemeral pieces of paper on display, Pierre Charpin’s new limited edition Kamo print is just one of the numerous signed and numbered works by artists and designers available from twentytwentyone.

Alternatively, kit him out with Wallace Sewell’s lambswool Duo scarf or the capacious Jordan weekend bag from Sandqvist.

Finally, our selection abounds with beautifully designed kitchen and tableware that is as pleasing to use as it is to look at, from Hope in the Woods’ hand-worked coffee scoops in sycamore wood, to Robert Welch’s classic nutcracker – unquestionably a seasonal essential.
