Gallop ahead in the style stakes this Christmas with unique, British made illustrated gifts
From countryside inspired kitchenware to equine and canine themed gifts, Katie Cardew Illustrations has the perfect presents for country lovers.
Award-winning illustrator, Katie Cardew, is striding ahead of the competition when it comes to stylish and quirky country and equestrian inspired gifts this Christmas.
From her popular country estate kitchenware to the relatable ‘A Day in the Life’ pony prints and accessories, and the best-selling G&T drinks board, perfect for popping in the horse lorry, Katie’s iconic bold style will brighten any home from country to city, and be a real talking point this festive season.
With products for every budget, there are ideas from stocking fillers, such as the popular ‘dog’s life’ tea towels, to perfect presents including the ‘I’d rather be at Burghley’ cosmetic bags, mugs or stationery, and gifts to take your breath away, like Katie’s framed fine art prints.
Katie’s policy is ‘buy well, buy once’ with each product and its packaging designed by Katie and made as locally as possible to her studio, using sustainable materials and minimal packaging. The inimitable designs, bold, rich colours and British made quality shine through in every item.
Here are some of our favourites for Christmas 2019, suitable for everyone looking to add a touch of unique country style to their home:
