The highest quality blades are teamed with handcrafted handles in a variety of materials including local olive wood and buffalo horn. Surely a truffle shaver is the gift for the cook who has everything? Saladini offers a truly handcrafted range of knives that’ll always remain exclusive and offer something that little bit different but with a guarantee of quality. The items are beautifully presented in wooden boxes and available from Global Luxury Brands.

Just like picking a drink from a menu in a stylish bar, there’s a glass within the Ginology Collection to suit every taste, with customers able to choose from a cocktail of different choices that will work with their personal style to enjoy at home. The Bumble Bee Copa Glass is the ‘bee’s knees’, a hugely popular design motif in 2019, taking inspiration from Gucci’s designer bee – sure to continue into 2020 and beyond. The glass is 20cm tall and is perfect for sipping on springtime cocktails. The beautiful British design features springtime daffodils, with small fuzzy bumble bees busying themselves searching for sweet nectar in the rich pickings. Presented in a kraft window giftbox, this piece is a double hitter, addressing two big trends in one – gin and bumble bees. T: +44 (0)1228 404 046
