With Christmas just around the corner it’s time to start looking at gift ideas for family and friends. To help that decision-making process along, Arrowtown-based furniture designers CRUIKSHANK are sharing the top Christmas gift suggestions from their product range.

1. Firebrand Fire Poker – $395
Designed by Ed Cruikshank, this ingenious fire poker is based on an ancient fire pipe, enabling the poker to double as a fire blower.

Elegantly crafted, the poker is made from a hollow, two-part and subtly tapering marine-grade stainless steel tube. When blown down it quickly sets even the laziest fire ablaze. The sharp prongs hook backwards, making it easy to push or pull logs whilst the long shaft and leather handle allow you to keep a good grip while at arm’s length from the fire.

Perfect for the brazier or charcoal BBQ in summer, and getting a roaring fire going in winter, the Firebrand is a year-round crowd pleaser.

2. CRUIKSHANK No. 50 Scented Candle – $90
Evoking the aromatic timbers and fine leathers of the CRUIKSHANK Arrowtown studio at No.50 Buckingham Street, the candle’s deliciously timeless scent was created by master perfumier Yves Dombrowsky.

In line with the CRUIKSHANK ethos that good design endures, the facetted glass vessel becomes an elegant whiskey glass once the candle’s purpose is served and comes with a black leather lid which also serves as a coaster for the glass.

This 100% New Zealand made candle is beautifully presented in a quality hand-made gift box, making it the perfect present for family, friends or colleagues.

3. Folded Side Table – $1,250
The simplest ideas can have striking results. The CRUIKHANK folded side table is both a piece of furniture and a piece of art.

By forming a sheet of Aluminium, the Folded side table incorporates a well for newspapers and magazines and a surface for a coffee or glass of wine.

Finished in graphite grey as standard and available in a spectrum of colours, this is a gift that will last a lifetime.

4. Firebrand Viper Tongs – $395
The latest addition to the Firebrand range. Like the Firebrand Poker and Blower, the Viper Tongs are made from marine-grade stainless steel and have hand-made leather handles riveted with studs for added grip. A perfect combination of form and function, the tongs are expertly engineered and built to outlast your fireplace.

They make the perfect gift for someone who has everything – even a CRUIKSHANK Firebrand Poker and Blower!
