Holiday Gift Guide: For the Anglophile in Your Life

Christine Chang Hanway December 20, 2012

Gifts for the Anglophile in your life, from your London editor:

Above: Umbrellas are a big deal in our family (fun fact: the 18th century philanthropist Jonas Hanway, related to my husband, was the first person in London to carry an umbrella). London Undercover has many to choose from, but we particularly like the Gentleman’s Umbrella, designed in collaboration with Michael Williams of A Continuous Lean; £165 from London Undercover. The Gentleman’s Umbrella is also available in the US directly from A Continuous Lean for $258. Pricey, yes, but the umbrella is handmade from a single piece of polished maple wood with a silver Ferrule tip; the industrial heavy-duty framework is exceptionally sturdy, and the canopy is made with a waterproof Black Watch poly fabric with a bright orange lining.

Above: What could be more English than a tea cozy? Our friend Megan Wilson offers cheerful, pompom-topped Tea Cosies, handknit in Devon from alpaca; $45 each (you can also buy the Tea Cosies from Ancient Industries UK outpost for £16).

Above: When was the last time you bought your spoon from the person who crafted it? Spitalfields spoon carver Barnaby Carder sits in the window at 260 Hackney Road carving spoons all day. For purchasing information, go to Barn the Spoon.

Above: Ali Miller’s Home Sweet Home Apron combines a black and white UK and Ireland weather map with a William Morris wallpaper print from her family home; £22.50.

N.B.: To make sure we’ve got everyone on your list covered, see all of our gift guides to date in our House Gifts section.
