Very Ugly Plates £10-£40

I first discovered these plates on instagram @veryuglyplatess and realised that you can buy them. The brand is based in Berlin, Germany, but they ship everywhere. I think these are great gifts because plates are ultimately functional and the message makes subversively interesting. The brand has since also expanded into mugs which widen the price bracket of these quirky gifts.

Craftsman Jamie creates a range of hand carved items, the pen pot is one of my favourite simply because of the simplicity of the form and function.
