Jonathan Adler Bird Spoon Rest
Hardly something that could be described as an essential, it would nonetheless make a great gift. The ceramic bird owes a bit to Scandinavian folkart in its shape and the colourful decoration on its back is decidedly retro. Pictured here is the pink version, but it is also available in blue and green.
The spoon rest costs £38 from the Jonathan Adler website.
