view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Whether you're a coffee love or a cocktail fan, we've got something for everyone

1. LSA decanters

Quirky, cool and just right for the bacchanal in your life. The Ono collection has a jug, carafe and decanter.

£28-£58, John Lewis

2. Opihr spiced gin

Taste the exotic this Christmas with this unique gin that draws on flavours from all across the ancient spice route, including black pepper from India to coriander from Morocco. 

£23, Harvey Nichols

3. Gourmet Gadgetry Retro 3-in-1 drinks maker

Whether you want to detox with a smoothie or chill out with a cocktail, this nifty gadget does both - as well as milkshakes! We love the vintage 1950s look.

£29.95, John Lewis

4. Pig corkscrew

A cheeky little addition to your kitchen, this cute little corkscrew apparently gets your bottles open quickly and easily.

£10, Roullier White

5. De’Longhi coffee machine

From bean to cup, this machine will take you every step of the way on the journey to the perfect coffee. It's got a memory system that remembers the amounts of milk, coffee and temperature to create a heavenly cup. However, the price is far too steep for us. 

£1,195, John Lewis

6. Eva Solo 1 litre Vacuum jug

Whether you like your drinks hot or cold, why not pour it from this tall jug that promises to catch every drop. It has a rubber handle to give you the best grip while serving.

£50, Coggles

7. Brooklyn Brew Shop beer-making kit

Who needs a pub when you can just brew your own beer at home? This kit will help you on your way to the pint of your dreams.

£39.99, Firebox

8. Corkcicle wine chiller

Keep your wine cool with this icicle-shaped wine chiller that you can use time and again. Just make sure you pour out a bit of wine before inserting so your bottle doesn't overflow.

£20, Science Museum Shop

9. TWG Earl Grey Fortune Tea

Indulge in a cup of tea to warm away the winter chills. This full-bodied tea is full of flavour and comes in a beautiful box.

£35, Harrods

10. Cola bottle clock

We love this clock which takes us back in time with its retro design. It's easy to read and will stand out in any home.

£35, Coggles
