Gifts for her & him
For a Christmas gift for her and him, you can’t go wrong with drinkware. Whether they're a coffee connoisseur and need something special to start their morning, prefer a slowly brewed cuppa to cradle while catching up with friends, or like something a little stronger to welcome in the weekend, Spode has a cup, mug and tumbler for every preference. Our favourites include the Morris & Co. Teapot & Mug Set for her, beautifully decorated in heritage prints from Morris & Co., our Black Italian Espresso Cup set for him in stylish monochrome, and the Creatures of Curiosity Tumbler Set for your favourite couple to enjoy a relaxing tipple together.
Gifts for the host
With fantastical celebrations on the menu this festive season, we have lots of gifts to spoil those who love to host (even yourself!) New for winter 2023 is the Christmas Doodles collection from Kit Kemp. All about bringing fabulously festive cheer to the home, the porcelain Christmas Cake Stand features a sketch illustration by Willow Kemp along with a cheeky tagline – perfect for serving delicious desserts with a smile! Or if they prefer their Christmas serveware with a vintage twist, treat them to the Christmas Tree 3 Piece Party Set. Perfectly sized for serving dips and snacks, when styled together the dishes create a charming Christmas Tree shape. Are you looking to treat them to something they can use all year round? The Morris & Co. Standen Serving Bowl is a beautiful gift for those who love to entertain in style. Adorned with a delicate leaf design around the edge of the bowl, inside and out, to make a statement from every angle.
Gifts for the home
Whether you’re looking for decorative pieces to spruce up your home or theirs, we have all the festive tableware, serveware and decorations to deck the halls in style. For lovers of all things blue and white, our new Blue Italian Decorative Cones and tree ornaments are a must. They feature elements from the iconic design that have been beautifully reimagined to create striking pieces for the home – for the festive season and beyond. If you’re after something a little more colourful for your festivities, our new Kit Kemp for Spode ornaments are ready to steal the show. Choose from an elephant, bear, rabbit, turkey and a dog, as well as baubles and mannequin-shaped decorations to add an alternative, elegant twist.
If you’re shopping for an interior lover and looking to add to their favourite Spode collections, the Morris & Co. Table Runner and Creatures of Curiosity Cushions make wonderful gifts they wouldn’t necessarily splash out on themselves. And finally, for a classic addition to the festive home, you can’t go wrong with Spode Christmas Tree. Choose from baubles, limited edition mugs, village ornaments and more.
Gifts under £20
For a stocking filler or Secret Santa treat to impress shop Spode’s gifts under £20. Show them how much you care with an Alphabet Mug from Kit Kemp personalised with the initial of their name. Beautifully boxed in bright blue and green, they are the perfect festive gift. If you’re buying them a bottle of their favourite wine, why not pair it with this suitably festive Bottle Stopper from the Christmas Tree collection? Choose from a tree or Santa Claus stopper to help keep their wine from spilling or spoiling over the festive season. Do you have a friend who is stationery obsessed? Well, you can’t go wrong with a new notepad to see them through the new year. Spode’s Creatures of Curiosity notebooks come in two different sizes and four different designs. There’s even a Laptop Sleeve to match!
