What seamstress, or casual sewer on your list could resist a pincushion; made of recycled sweaters and hand stitched and looking good enough to eat. For the eyeglasses, a glass case of traditional Welsh design, made on looms at a woollen mill in Snowdonia.
For the tea drinkers, a jolly tea cosy made of scraps of vintage fabrics, pieced together to form a little story in its design. Coming in single or double pot size with a calory free cupcake on the side. Of course there are endless fairtrade teas and the de rigeur global warming mug to go with this liquid present. When you add hot water to the mug you will see the world's coastlines slowly disappear.
