2. Classic Ladybird book cover ‘read and write’ in mug form. I must admit to having a soft spot for the current 'vintage' trend and, having grown up with Ladybird books, this mug makes me feel warm and fuzzy. How about you? £9.95 from NotOnTheHighStreet.
3. Emma Bridgewater china is known for its combination of lovely design and excellent

piece of cake’. Can’t argue with that. £17.95 from Rigby&Mac.
