Perfect Christmas gift? For £945 this Tiffany & Co tin can could be yours

The Tiffany Christmas gift guide also includes a £7,000 ball of yarn. Perfect gift, right?

If you’re looking to pimp up your home or start Christmas shopping early – and have a spare few thousand pounds to burn – then Tiffany & Co. might have the perfect solution.

Unveiling its new - and ridiculously overpriced - home collection, the brand has launched a range of characteristically chic accessories that Tiffany describes as “ordinary objects made extraordinary.”

Which is an understatement to say the least.

The £945 tin is perfect for putting pens in pencils in, we suppose, but you could get a cheaper version that'd save you £944 

Aside from the classic pieces one would expect to see from the luxury retailer – think sterling silver candlesticks and crystal glassware – there are a whole host of kitschy objects that raise a few eyebrows.

Among our favourites is a set of two signature blue bone china cups - designed to look like throwaway paper coffee cups - that will set you back a whopping $95 (£72), and a sterling silver 'tin can' for £945.

If you’re in the possession of the cash, you could even pick up a $10,000 (£7,634) sterling silver bird’s nest filled with porcelain eggs, a $9,000 (£6,871) sterling silver ball of yarn and a set of leather, walnut, and silver ping-pong paddles for $650 ($496).

Or, just what everybody needs, a $330 (£251) crazy straw.

As ridiculous at the exorbitant collection might sound, it’s certainly proving a hit among Tiffany fans who are taking to Twitter in droves to express their excitement.

“I need this cup. I'll take two one for home one for the office!!” one person wrote.

Another added, “Got really excited about the new #TiffanyEveryDay range ... up until the point I realised I’d have to spend £565 on a sterling First Aid Box.”
