An Unconventional Christmas


An Unconventional Christmas


Socks, scarves, smellies… ordinary Christmas presents are nice but why stick to traditional gifts when you can have an Unconventional Christmas? Avoid that last-minute dash to the shops (or panic buying online) and find perfect prezzies for everyone in your life, with a little help from our Christmas Gift Guide.

Think outside the box and read on for thoughtful, practical and beautiful gifts that will last this Christmas and beyond, plus some of our top tips for a sustainable Christmas!



A Stimulating Christmas


Royal Doulton Coffee Studio

If you stayed up too late wrapping presents, know a coffee addict that’s desperate for a new caffeine companion, or have friends popping over during the festive period – here are our top picks from the Coffee Studio Collection:



A Spirited Christmas


Royal Doulton Seasons Decanter Set

Mulled wine, Port or Bailey’s – you don’t have to stick to traditional tipple this Christmas. Why swig something you’re not that keen on, when you can sip your favourite gin, whiskey or prosecco cocktail in style. Treat yourself or a loved-one to some Royal Doulton drinkware such as:



A ‘Chef-fy’ Christmas


Royal Doulton with Gordon Ramsay

Maybe you, a friend or your family loves to cook? This selection of goodies from our favourite chef, Gordon Ramsay, are perfect for a foodie this festive period. Treat them to a new set of knives, use the Maze White Oval Dish for an extra special Christmas spread or add these stylish little dipping bowls to the table with oil, vinegar and anything else you fancy inside. Shop this look:



A Bold Christmas


Royal Doulton Pacific

Christmas doesn’t have to be tedious and traditional. Make their dreams come true by giving them this Royal Doulton Pacific Splash 16 Piece Dinner Set. Or, if you fancy a change this year, celebrate it your way and live bold! Whatever the reason, enjoy a festive feast on our indigo coloured Pacific ‘Splash’ design:



A Colourful Christmas


Royal Doulton 1815

Add some colour to your (or their) Christmas with the Royal Doulton 1815 Bright Colours Collection! A set of nesting jugs perfect for condiments and sauces, not forgetting statement serving boards for starters, mains or desserts. Why stick to red and green when you can invite the rainbow into your home?



A Shareable Christmas


Royal Doulton Bowls of Plenty

Thanks to Bowls of Plenty, you can have a different sized bowl for every side or snack! This 5-piece pasta set is great for sharing a meal with friends and family too, and doesn’t just have to be used for spaghetti, penne or tagliatelle. Coming in a rich, dark colour palette; this collection is perfect for the modern winter table:



A Thoughtful Christmas


Ellen DeGeneres with Royal Doulton

Want to say a thoughtful thank you to a certain someone this Christmas? Forget chocolate – this selection of ED by Ellen DeGeneres mugs are the perfect practical gift as they won’t break the bank and will last the whole year round. They’ll enjoy their favourite hot drink every morning, knowing they’re appreciated and loved… just a little something from you to them. Pick your favourite or splash out and get all four:



A Sustainable Christmas


The environment is important to us, which is why we think ceramics make the perfect gift. Beautifully made, durable, useful and just damn-right dazzling – our picks of presents will last a lifetime.

When it comes to wrapping, why not use the boxes and packing provided, or if you’re feeling crafty – get some old paper and some art supplies and get stuck in! Check out the photos from our Christmas shoot for inspiration. Amy, our Content Specialist, repurposed a roll of brown recycled paper with some old paints and inks she had. Inspired by our Pacific Splash print, she watered them down and got creative, experimenting with drips and splats! We hope you agree that making your own wrapping paper (and tags) is a simple yet effective idea. It also shows you’ve put thought and effort in to your gift to make it that extra bit special, and sustainable of course!

When it comes to food – why not make a soup, an omelette, or bubble and speak with leftovers from the big day? You can then freeze this for a later date, so nothing is wasted.

When it comes to Christmas trees, we think real is best. Why not spend a little extra and buy a tree with roots, so you can keep it outside for the rest of the year and watch it grow with your family, rather than just binning or recycling it on 5th January – the little birds in your garden will love it.

Whatever you get up to this year, we’d love to see your photos on social media. We hope you have the best, most sustainable, unconventional Christmas yet!

Cheers from all of us at Royal Doulton!
