Oh, come on, who doesn't love Lakeland? I'd rather read their catalogue than Vogue but then I do love a gadget. Katy agrees with me: 'I love it, it's so defiantly uncool. One quick trawl online and I've convinced myself that my kitchen will cease to function without asparagus scissors, a biscotti pan and a strawberry slicer; although, on a practical note, once you've tried their baking parchment cake-tin liners, you'll never go back to greasing, cutting and sticking.' A fabulous mix of the essential and the esoteric.
