At Nkuku we’re starting to get that niggling feeling that we should have really started our Christmas shopping by now. And whilst we’re all familiar with the old saying “It’s the thought that counts…” there’s nothing quite like that feeling you get, when you see the excitement on someone’s face when they open the perfect gift.
Incase you’re struggling for ideas of what to buy his year, we’ve pulled a gift guide together to help you find something special.
Creating a unique gift We think photo frames are fantastic for creating a truly personal gift, before you wrap them up fill them with pictures and mementos to make a montage of your favourite moments.
The iconic Nkuku Kiko Frames are a sure fire hit, and perfect for layering memories on top of each other in a pretty collage. But if you’re feeling particularly generous the timeless and clean design of our Tal Multiwood Frame, makes the perfect backdrop to display your favourite memories together from the last year.
Gifts for foodies Our kitchen and dining section has a wide array of gifts for people who love to eat or cook. The Mango Wood Pizza Board makes a great masculine gift, and they’re available in three sizes so there’s something to suit every budget. Our Pizza Boards are made from sustainable mango wood, which is harvested after the trees have finished producing fruit, providing Mango farmers with a supplementary income. This also means you have a lovely story to tell once the gift has been opened.
If you’re trying to find a foodie gift that someone might not buy for themselves, the Recycled Glass Cake Domes are guaranteed to bring a smile to someone’s face. Like the Pizza Boards the base is made from sustainable mango wood, and the dome, which is available in three different shapes, is made from recycled glass. Whilst they look beautiful with a cake inside, we think they’re also great for cheese, fruit or antipasti.
If you’re looking for something stylish, our Savannah Leather Saddle Bag is made from a beautiful untreated leather, and each one is hand stitched from start to finish by one skilled artisan.
On the other hand if you’re after everyday item that’s sure to attract a lot of compliments, our simple yet stunning Mawia bracelet is rather beautiful. It comes in a soft suede pouch, which makes it all the more exciting to unwrap. Available in a choice of 4 gorgeous colours there’s something to suit every taste.
For those looking to buy something very special we also have a fantastic choice of luxury gifts. Our Braided Hemp Basket is hand woven on traditional hand looms, from eco friendly hemp and makes a great storage kindling basket to put next to the fire.
Our Ila Lambswool Throws and Hot Water Bottle Covers are particularly versatile gifts, suitable for most ages they come in a lovely choice of neutral and masculine colours. Each one is hand knitted in a lovely chunky knit. We think its perfect for snuggling under on a wintery afternoon.
A little something… Let’s not forget our smaller more cost effective presents, because after all, it’s the little things that make Christmas. Our stylish Pia jug is a lovely multipurpose piece. Made from galvansied steel it can be used as a water jug, vase or even utensil pot..
Finally, we have a lovely selection of bottle stops. Retailing at under £10 each we think our Rose Bottle Stop and Stag Bottle Stop are particularly stylish.
Whether you're buying for friends, family or even yourself this Christmas, we quite literally have something for everyone, just make sure you place your order on our website by midday on 22nd December to guarantee a pre Christmas delivery.
