One of our Father’s Day gifts was a Lollipop Design’s constellation mug which features a motif of the position of the stars for the zodiac constellations.
The Lollipop website explains: ‘There is a narrow pathway of sky through which it appears the sun moves passing through groups of stars known as constellations, forming a circle for the year. This map of stars is the constellation that the sun passes through during the dates shown, and if you are born within these dates this is the bit of sky you can call your own.’
Made from fine bone china and decorated by hand in real gold in Stoke-on-Trent, making each one one-of-a-kind, we’ve already had several friends eyeing it. They come in a giftbox with a little info leaflet and you most definitely cannot stick them in the dishwasher!
This is one of those unusual thoughtful gifts that suits a variety of occasions and I’ll definitely be gifting friends with these. Â£20 each.
