Meet the Dapper Animals!

Meet the Dapper Animals!

Meet the family of Dapper Animals!

If foxes in top hats, with monocles and canes aren't your thing, then you're in the wrong place. Maybe try here...

A smart collection of the fanciest animals you'll find anywhere. They're made from resin and are uniquely beautiful decor for the animal loving home.

Whether you're a lover of cats, dogs, ducks, foxes or stags there's a dashing dapper for everyone.

They're made from resin, painted in regal colours and finished with a sparkling dash of glitter to add that shine.

Starting at £19, each Dapper is fairy large with the smallest Bulldog bust standing at 25cm. The taller, standing Dappers are all approximately 40cm tall. They really are statement pieces - especially if the statement is: "my animals must be suited and booted."

We strongly recommend keeping an eye on the collection because there will be more on the way and the Dapper Animals are here to stay!

Animal Portrait Picture Tiles by Christine Varley

Animal Portrait Picture Tiles by Christine Varley

Everybody loves a charming and characterful animal portrait and we're no different at Prezents.com.

These funky ceramic picture tiles, inspired by the Waggy Dogz artwork of Christine Varley are a super, vibrant gift idea for the animal loving, dog-owning household.

The artist herself has licensed these colourful reproductions of her work and they have proven to be hugely popular. There's a Wolf, an Alsatian, a Labrador and more.

"Developing her style as a Pet Portrait artist, Christine has a reputation for capturing the very character of the animal she is painting. The secret to a great portrait is that it is all about the eyes. Her work has been sent all over the world. Christine is a great lover of all animals and this is reflected in her paintings. She understands the importance of the relationship between owners and the their pets. The paintings are created from her garden studio in Derbyshire with her dogs around her feet." Source

Measuring 8 x 8 inches and with a hook for hanging these awesome, hand-painted beauties brighten up a home perfectly.

The great thing about the small, 8 x 8, tiles is that you can either hang them on the wall using the hook on the back of the tile or you can stand them up with the wooden leg that folds out. 

Each one costs an excellent £16 (plus shipping - orders over £35 are sent out for free) and when you get yours you'll appreciate the quality, finish and charm that each has for just £16.

Whether it's the Border Collie, Jack Russell, Labrador, Springer Spaniel or Pig...there's a choice for everyone and each has it's own colourful background.

Beryl Cook Inspired Ceramic Picture Tiles

Beryl Cook Inspired Ceramic Picture Tiles

Beryl Cook's artwork has been adored for generations. The iconic Brit's quirky, hilarious style has become synonomous with British art. Now, on Prezents.com we have a recently licensed collection of decorative ceramic picture tiles featuring her artwork.

From the beginning Beryl’s work had a remarkable effect on the British, who immediately took her to their hearts. Her appeal was classless and she rapidly became Britain’s most popular artist. She was a ‘heart and soul’ painter, compelled to paint with a passion. Her paintings encapsulate joy; her style totally original, warm and so instantly recognisable that her work became part of our artistic vernacular. She possessed that rare gift – the power to uplift.

Beryl travelled considerably, gleaning new material for her work, often discreetly sketching on small cards inside her handbag to be hidden from view. Based in her beloved Plymouth, she recorded local life with as much relish as that in Buenos Aries, New York, Cuba, Paris and Barcelona. Though a late starter, Beryl completed over 500 paintings in her relatively short painting career.

Beryl Cook’s work is particularly interesting when viewed in the context of the tradition of British social realist painting and she could easily be described as a contemporary Hogarth or Gilray, although she had a more sympathetic view of the human race. She was, like them, above all a social observer.

Prezents.com's penchant for the quirky, alternative gift has resulted in an ever-expanding collection of garden decoration in the form of fairy doors and houses.

The vibrant and magical sculptures are an audacious addition to the garden for those who want their outdoor space to be different from everyone else's.

Prezents.com's designer Ian has picked out the Vintage Normende Radio as his favourite. He said: "They just look great. When we saw pictures I thought they were excellent but I never expected such quality and precision. The Radio is definitely my favourite. It's just classic isn't it? That vintage radio you always see in movies and on TV. I'm itching to get one for my record collection!'

Anyone for a spot of tea?

Anyone for a spot of tea?

Everyone loves tea right? It's a staple of British culture pretty much the most important drink in the world.

Our office is often flavoured with the aroma of some classic Twinings breakfast tea. It increases our productivity, obviously.

With such a passion for tea comes an adoration for quirky, collectable tea pots.

Particularly the Canadian artist, Heather Goldminc's decorative teapots. They are made from ceramic and each one is individually hand-painted. They come in absolutely superb  quality packaging making them a great gift for posting, too.

Shall we get down to it and show you some?

We'll start with the classic, English cottages we have. There's Bluewinds, Rose and, Prezent's personal favourite: Ivy. There's an image below for you to look at. The chimney  is the lid for the teapot and the ivy-laden brickwork is the spout. Prezents thinks it's a really classic looking teapot that's perfect for Grandma's shelf.

 

It wouldn't be a range on Prezents.com without some animals in amongst it! This range is no different and we've given you a variety of animals to choose from. Each one with their own characterful features.

 

 

There are six for you to admire. The rest of them are here.
