The small things

We love these decorative display boxes from Miniature Memoirs. Each box is custom-made and filled with 1:12 scale objects that celebrate a certain theme, occasion, ceremony, lifestyle or hobby. Once the objects have been painstakingly collated, each box is covered in glass and framed to create a unique and personalised wall hanging. The standard size of the box is 47cm by 47cm, and it takes three to four weeks to put together. The next time you are looking for an unusual gift for a loved one, why not think small?

Fair game

Fairwind's Klimt cushions are inspired by the Austrian abstract artist. We like the Klimt Embrace, which is handmade in Kashmir using traditional cross stitch techniques. Composed of naturally dyed wool threads set on a strong canvas backing, the 45-square-centimetre cushion is eco-friendly and fair trade. And with its brown and blue palette, it will complement most interior colour schemes.

Free for all

Kas Australia Dubai is running a buy-one-get-one free promotion on selected items this summer. For every purchase made, you'll get an item of the equivalent value for free. With the colourful Cleo, Groovy and Emma duvet sets included in the offer, it's the perfect time to give your bed a revamp.

Play time

With play restricted to the indoors right now, this Colette and Pinpin soft toy skittle set should help keep younger children entertained. It's made by the charming French toymaker Moulin Roty, a cooperative company that specialises in artisan-made textiles and traditional toys such as wooden musical instruments, jigsaw puzzles and puppet sets.
