Santa's Lap: 1930s Modernist London Homes China

Every day until Christmas the Londonist team will be pointing you in the direction of a Christmas present that (with a bit of luck) you won’t already have on your list. Climb up onto our collective lap and we’ll see what we can move from our sack to your stockings…

Quick, quick, quick: it's last posting day for the UK so last chance to mail order your Christmas gifts.

Order some of this awesome china for any Londonophile with an appreciation of modernist architecture and beautiful design. These mugs (£10) and plates (£25) depict "the minimal beauty of white-rendered pre-war modern masterpieces across London" in judiciously selected shades. Even if you've no idea where Highpoint is - pictured - you've got to admit, it's a classy mug.

People Will Always Need Plates also produce Trellick Tower mugs and a Barbican range as well as a tea towel for Maggie's Cancer Caring Centre London. Their Gherkin ware is exclusively available in Spitalfields. Handsome Hornsey Town Hall adorns mugs obtainable in a local shop; Indish, Crouch End.

Check out everything made by People Will Always Need Plates but don't hang about. Order today and keep your fingers crossed that Royal Mail get it to you on time.
