Santa's Lap: Wooden London Skyline Gifts


Every day until Christmas we will be pointing you in the direction of a London-inspired 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…

Maria Allen's jewellery and gift business is based in Brighton, but she's got a nice selection of items with the city's skyline etched on them. The wood used in the cufflinks (£30 silver plated, £50 sterling silver) and keyring (£18) comes from a 200 year old copper beech tree that used to stand in Winston Churchill's family home in Kent, so that's an extra bonus for history buffs.

The wood used in the 8GB USB stick/keychain (£35) is FSC-certified European maple wood, or you can put your mugs onto one of four cherry wood and MDF veneer coasters (£28). All gifts come in lovely presentation boxes. Delivery is free for orders over £30 or you can pay £9 for express delivery.
