So let’s get going….
Christmas Gift Guide 2021 – Gifts For Him
Gifting for men can be tricky…sometimes even they don’t know what they want. Luckily there are a few standbys that you can rely on (i.e the trusty pair of socks for example). Often these are a nice to have/always need kind of gift that you can never go wrong with, but not always the most thoughtful or exciting gift. Luckily we have a few ideas for gifts that are super popular with men – be it your partner, dad, brother, grandfather, uncle or son, that you will actually be excited to give on Christmas morning.
NEW to our product range for 2021, is this sleek and sophisticated Black and Brass Whisky glass. A must have for any whisky lover, though to be honest, they can be used to enjoy any short drink, not just whisky. Presented in gift-packaging, and boxed as a set of 2 these brass and black glasses are ready to give.
If the man in your life fancies himself as a bit of a mixologist, then you can’t go wrong with our Leather and Brass Cocktail Shaker or our Leather & Brass Cocktail Kit. The combination of the black leather and brass give both these products a masculine edge but also look super smart a luxe. And if you want to compliment with the complete entertaining set we also have a Cheese Knife Set in the same style.
For the host with the most we recommend our Large Cheese Board. Handmade from mango wood and featuring rustic steel handles at each end that rotate for ease of carrying, this super sized board is guaranteed to have plenty of room for cheese, crackers and other delicious nibbles.
Christmas Gift Guide 2021 – Gifts For Her
Women are often viewed as being easier to buy for than men – but really this is a complete myth. Buying a gift for her can be mission impossible – especially if she hasn’t dropped any hints. Luckily we have gifts for women that are guaranteed crowd pleasers, suitable for your mum, grandma, auntie, daughter or best friend.
New for Christmas 2021 are these beautiful Floral Print Copper Glasses and Floral Print Gold Champagne Flutes which feature a hand-drawn illustration by Victoria McGrane of The Scenic Route.

Our pretty Marble and Copper Cocktail kit is a must-have gift for any cocktail fan, why not complete the set with our New Brushed Copper Cocktail Shaker? Easy to use, this PVD 2-piece shaker has the added bonus of being dishwasher safe, so one less thing to wash up at Christmas.
Of course you can never go wrong with getting her a stunning cocktail glass to enjoy her favourite creation. Our Coupe Cocktail Glasses are perfect for serving Margaritas, Daiquiris and Manhattans while our Stemless Martini Glasses work well for Classic Martini’s and of course the ever popular Espresso Martini. If you need a little help deciding on glassware we have put together this helpful guide to the best types of glassware for your home bar.
Another beautiful pair of gifts are our Timber Marble Cheese Board and Marble Timber Cheese Knife Set. The hand-carved mango wood end piece makes this beautiful cheese board the centre-piece on any table, and with the matching cheese knife set complimenting it perfectly. Perfect for a girls night in with a cheese board for having the family round at Christmas.

Christmas Gift Guide 2021 – Gifts For The Oenophile
Hands up if you have a friend or family member who is a total wine snob that you are terrified to by actual wine for! Yes, I think that we can all relate to some wine selection anxiety especially when buying for someone who knows (or thinks they know) quite a bit about wine. P.S If you hadn’t already guessed – an oenophile is a posh word for wine connoisseur!
In this situation, our suggestion would be to bypass the actual wine altogether and instead get them some pretty awesome wine accessories – thoughtful, shows you know their interests, and soooo much easier to get right!
If they have quite the collection of wine then this beautifully carved Wine Rack Tree is perfect for small spaces and the exxy drops you want to show off to guests. Sit it on the floor or benchtop, it’s versatile style fits anywhere.

Our stylish single bottle wine cooler in matt white with timber base is perfect for chilling that Sauv-B on a sunny afternoon, or setting on the table for Christmas day drinks.
