(Last-Minute) Holiday Gift Guide

Boskke newspaper catalogue, showing off sky planters and other urban growing solutions. Make and print a newspaper with Newspaper Club.

'Tis the season for last-minute gift guides! Here are a few products we love from 8 companies that have printed with us – they'd all make great holiday gifts but would be a pleasure to receive any time of year, really.


Boskke newspaper catalogue, showing off sky planters and other urban growing solutions. Make and print a newspaper with Newspaper Club.

Boskke

Here's something for the busy plant lover on your list: Boskke (which means "little forest" in Old English) makes self-watering planters that are beautiful to boot. Their gardening products have a built-in irrigation system that meters out water for up to two weeks between refills. Genius!

The Flipped Planter (£49.95) is a playful take on the classic terracotta pot. We also love the space-saving Sky Planter Recycled (£34.95), which hangs upside down.


U Studio newspaper catalogue, filled with stationery, cards and gifts. Make and print a newspaper with Newspaper Club.

U Studio

If you’ve admired the stationery shelves at the Tate Modern or V&A, chances are you’ve seen the work of Bristol-based U Studio. The publisher and purveyor of lovely printed goods also supplies Paperchase, Waterstones, Urban Outfitters and many more.

They collaborate with artists all over the world for their designs. We're partial to the William Goldsmith greeting cards (£2.50 each) – buy a few for the letter writer in your life.


Petrichor newsprint catalogue. Make and print your own newspaper with Newspaper Club.

Norwegian Rain

Based in Bergen, the rainiest city in Europe, Norwegian Rain have waterproofing down to an art form. Their "hardcore functional outerwear" doesn't come cheap, but if you're looking to justify a splurge, here's a gift that's as practical as it is luxurious. Plus, their high-tech fabric is made from 100% recycled material.

The unisex Raincho jacket (from £519.76) is part raincoat, part poncho – it can be belted up (feminine and quirky) or left loose (bold and drapey) to suit any style and weather forecast.


Poketo and Baggu x Freddie and Co.

Freddie and Co.

Earlier this year, MailChimp launched online store Freddie and Co. "to get a glimpse of what life is like for our e-commerce customers." They collaborate with creatives to make products for good causes and are chronicling the ups and downs in a great newsletter called What's in Store?.

For their latest collaboration, they teamed up with two brands we love – Poketo and Baggu. Everything looks amazing, but we'll pick one item to highlight here: the Poketo: Plan spiral-bound planner ($38), which is perfect for keeping track of deadlines and jotting down ideas for your next newspaper. 100% of proceeds from the planner (and everything else in the collection) benefit re:imagine/ATL.


Find delicious recipes for Swedish crispbread in the Peter's Yard newspaper catalogue. Make and print a newspaper with Newspaper Club.

Peter's Yard

For the host with the most, how about a box of crispbread wheels (£5.50) from Peter's Yard? Made with naturally fermenting sourdough and organic flour, they can turn any getogether into a Swedish fika. Peter's Yard shares loads of ideas for toppings on Instagram, like pickled herring and hard-boiled eggs.


Newspaper Club Gift Guide: Donna Wilson socks

Donna Wilson

You can't go wrong with anything from Donna Wilson's wooly wonderland, but her patterned socks (£12 -£14) make an extra cosy stocking stuffer. Grab a pair of Mountain Bike socks (£14) for your favourite pedal pusher.


Newspaper Club Gift Guide: TINCT newspaper catalogue. Make and print a newspaper with Newspaper Club.

TINCT

Since 2014, siblings Rosie and Ben Broad of TINCT have crafted a beautiful range of vegetable-tanned leather goods from a barn-turned-studio in Chichester. With the right care, their elegant card wallets (£75) will last a lifetime. And for a truly one-of-a-kind gift, you can have any wallet or bag embossed with initials, nicknames "or rude words if you fancy".


Newspaper Club Gift Guide: Exercises in Seating by Max Lamb. Published by Dent De Leon and printed by Newspaper Club.Image courtesy of @shopcooperhewitt

Dent-De-Leone

Indie publisher Dent-De-Leone, founded by Åbäke designers Kajsa Ståhl and Maki Suzuki, works directly with artists and designers to produce sometimes obscure, always unique, art books.

Exercises in Seating (£15), printed as a traditional mini newspaper, is an "ode to chairs" from furniture designer Max Lamb. It carefully documents the 40+ chairs included in Lamb's acclaimed exhibition of the same name – a great read for anyone who enjoys deep dive into the little details of design.
