2016 Gift Guide: Pretty Plastic

Gifts in plastic – they’re fantastic!

Horrible Adorables figure
Packed with personality, this vinyl figure by Kidrobot is sure to brighten up any desk or bookshelf. Designed by Jordan Elise, this blue pufferhedge is part of a collection that includes seven toys total – each one produced in a limited quantity of 1000. $35, at Mindzai

Jellies cup and saucer
Patricia Urquiola’s tableware collection for Kartell resembles cut crystal but is actually made of dishwasher-safe plastic. As elegant as it is durable, this cup set transitions perfectly from high tea to limoncellos on the patio. $30/set, at Holt Renfrew Kartell Pop-Up

Korg fruit basket
The perfect vessel for a stack of Christmas oranges, Ommo’s handsome hexagon-shaped bowl features thick stripes running horizontally and vertically. Choose from dark green or dark purple colourways. $30, at Drake General Store

Great news, last minute shoppers: a one year gift subscription to our sister magazine AZURE is just $25. Get the best of design, architecture, interiors and curiosity delivered to their mailbox all year long. (Because no design lover’s coffee table is complete without a stack of handsome periodicals.) As an added bonus, each new gift subscription includes a complimentary monster-shaped Diabolix bottle opener by Alessi. Now that’s a deal worth toasting to!
