With Christmas just around the corner you might be wondering what you could possibly ask for this year.
I was like you, once, but fortunately this brilliant new collection from Tiffany & Co came along and I’ll tell you what, there are just so many things I never knew I needed until I saw the Tiffany Everyday Objects range.
Maybe you’re looking for a festive gift for a really hard-to-please relative?
I know I’ve been struggling, but one visit to Tiffany’s website and BAM, just like that, all my problems were solved.
Don’t worry though, if Tiffany & Co is out of your price range I’ve also included high street alternatives cos I’m nice like that.
1. Luxury: Sterling silver Tin Can, £945
Putting the everyday into Tiffany Everyday Objects is my personal favourite of the range. Highly recognisable as a Tiffany & Co tin can as opposed to any other kind by the Tiffany blue enamel stripe down the side.
Perfect for… storing stuff in maybe? Perhaps the tears of poor people.
Just make sure the kids don’t try to recycle it.
Meanwhile on the high Street: 4 pack of Heinz Tomato Soup, £2
Eat your soup, rinse out the cans and ta da! High street dupe for a high end can.
Bonuses include: contains actual food and there’s 4 of them. Oh, and they’re £943 cheaper.
2. Luxury: Vermeil Crazy Straw, £330
Who doesn’t need a totally impractical and expensive straw around kids? Tiffany themselves describe this one as a ‘fun and whimsical design that adds a fun and festive addition to the home’. Righty ho then.
Meanwhile on the high Street: Pack of 60 Crazy Straws, £9.99
Now I’ll admit, I’ve gone for one of the more expensive high street options but I feel this pack offers you real value money. 60 crazy straws AND one of the designs even looks a bit like a willy. What’s not to love?
3. Luxury: Ball of Yarn, £8475
No, I haven’t stuck a rogue figure in there somewhere. Nor am I taking the piss. I assume that Tiffany’s might be. I don’t even have any amusing words for this one.
Meanwhile on the high street: Ball of string, £1.23 and Silver spray paint, £3.69.
4. Luxury: Corkscrew £210
Meanwhile, on the high street: Corkscrew, £7.15
In keeping with the subtle and beautiful lines of the original, the McLovin corkscrew will impress even the most hoity toity Christmas guest.
5. Luxury: Desk Puzzle £470
Meanwhile on the high street: Anti-stress magnetic balls, £8.13
6. Luxury: Pencil Sharpener, £260
Contains three pencils because otherwise that would just be a rip off, wouldn’t it?
Meanwhile on the high street: Cat’s bum pencil sharpener, £7.95
If what you’re really looking for is a talking point, then I’d wager that this one would probably invite more conversation when displayed proudly on your office desk.
7. Luxury: First Aid Box, £565
Meanwhile on the high street: First aid kit, £13.54
8. Luxury: Paper Cup, £540
Made of sterling silver, but be warned, you can’t actually put hot liquid inside it.
Meanwhile on the high street: Paper cups, £6.99
One hundred times as much for one 77th of the price meaning you could have almost 8000 of these for the same money. That’s one a day for 21 years, or if you really like your coffee, three a day for seven years and NO washing up.
Good for people that like corners.
Meanwhile on the high street: Geometry tools, £3
For us poor unfortunates without £425 to spunk on tat, here is a very useful set of geometry tools which does exactly what the other one does; more in fact because you get TWO triangles AND a protractor so you can even measure angles too. Woah. It’s also safe to use without someone mugging you or thinking you’re a pretentious wanker.
I hope you enjoyed that and found it useful, and maybe my alternatives to the Tiffany Everyday Objects even helped you save some money!
If you’re in the market for Christmas gifts, I have a great selection here (as long as you don’t like the person you’re buying for).
