The Gifted Penguin has cherry picked the prettiest and most stylish gifts for the home and garden. They sell everything from mugs to travel bags and stock designs from British flag-flyer Emma Bridgewater, Cath Kidston and East of India. To give you a little whisper of the goodies they sell, I’ve made my own top five wish list.


Coming in at number 5 is this super stylish Toast Cake Tin by Emma Bridgewater. I love the its blackness. You don’t often get black kitcheny things.


Coming in at number 4 is this set of Birdy Canister Storage Tins. Featuring a Robin, Thrush & Wagtail these tins have a 50s vibe and naive design.


Number 3 is this East of India Mum’s Memories Box. I love treasure boxes, as my mum calls them. I have one myself that is busting at the seems. While this one is pretty, it’s only small, so would be ideal for those smaller, perhaps more valuable keepsakes.


Number 2 is this set of Enamel Herb Pots in a lovely shutter blue. I have herbs by my window and this set would tidy the whole area up. Watering small pots and indoor plants from the bottom up is essential, so the little blue tray would make this easier.


Number 1 is this vibrant Red Felt Magazine Holder Rack . So bright and in my favourite colour, this would look very cool in my lounge room stuffed with old copies of The New Scientist, Vanity Fair and various cooking magazines. I’d be tempted to use this as a very spacious handbag.
