Instantly recognisable for its quirky, colourful patterns, Emma Bridgewater pottery is a conversation starter all year round. However, Christmas is the time of year when the iconic ceramics brand really shines – every year, the team at YourHomeStyle looks forward to discovering the new festive mugs, plates, kitchenware and tree decorations we’ll be adding to our Christmas list.
This year, we reckon Emma Bridgewater has outdone itself with its Christmas range, packed full of cute and cosy designs inspired by everything from polar bears to Brussels sprouts. Read on to discover our 10 must-have items from the collection…
Emma Bridgewater Christmas 2021 collection highlights
Christmas Celebration 1/2 pint mug
Emma Bridgewater mugs are rightly among their most-loved products, and this Christmas you’ll find several new additions to the line-up, including this jolly tribute to traditional gifts like mittens, teddy bears and rocking horses, with sprigs of spruce and holly adding to the festive feel.
Christmas Joy Small Star Plate
We love the eye-catching star shape of this earthenware plate, painted with illustrations of candlesticks and Christmas puddings. At 21cm across, its the perfect size for enjoying a mince pie – or two – but we think it’s pretty enough to be purely decorative.
Penguin Felt Christmas Decoration
Did you know Emma Bridgewater sells Christmas decorations? Their range of Christmas tree decorations includes stockings, reindeers and snowmen, but we’re especially partial to this cute little felt penguin, wrapped in a finely-crocheted red scarf.
Christmas Toast & Marmalade Medium Enamel Cooking Pot
If you love brewing up a panful of mulled wine, egg nog or festive punch at Christmas, this large enamel cooking pan is for you! The pan reads ‘Delicious Hot Mulled Wine’, with a lid which pays tribute to the recipe’s classic seasoning, ‘Orange Zest and Cloves’ And for year-round cooking, Emma Bridgewater’s oven-to-table enamel pans are safe for use in the oven or on electric, induction and gas hobs.
Spruce Large Oval Platter
We can’t think of a more sumptuous way to serve up your roast turkey or Christmas cake than this large platter from Emma Bridgewater’s Spruce range. Hand-painted with green fronds, red berries, a scattering of stars and a charming robin, it makes for a truly impactful presentation dish.
Sprouts Christmas Card
They might be the most divisive item on the Christmas dinner table, but these particular Brussels sprouts are sure to win over anyone! The fresh tones of green, lifelike illustrations and that classic Emma Bridgewater calligraphy mean this Christmas card is guaranteed to stand out on the mantelpiece.
Winter Polar Bears 1/2 Pint Mug
The perfect receptacle for a steaming cup of hot cocoa, this half-pint mug depicts a polar bear and two cubs swimming in the Arctic. We absolutely adore the starry night sky and glowing green Northern Lights in the background – so atmospheric!
Christmas Joy Patchwork Fabric Present Sack
When it comes to storing your pressies, it doesn’t get more stylish than this patchwork-look festive sack. Made from 10o% cotton, it measures 70cm x 50cm, giving you plenty of space to cram with gifts -we also think it would make a great storage for Christmas decorations. Machine washable on a gentle cycle at 30C, but isn’t suitable for tumble drying or dry cleaning.
Christmas Toast & Marmalade 40cm Enamel Roasting Dish With Handles
Who loves a few pigs in blankets on the side of their Christmas dinner? Since supermarkets started selling tasty vegetarian versions, we’re sure it’s pretty much everyone! If you’ll be whipping up a big batch this year, this 40cm-long baking dish is just the job.
One side reads ‘pigs in blankets’ and the other side ‘bubble and squeak’, but this oven-proof enamel dish is just the job for all your roasting and baking needs.
Winter Scene Choir Round Tin Bauble
As well as their Christmas tree figures, Emma Bridgewater also sell a small but delightful range of tin baubles. This one is especially charming, a winter scene depicting a festive choir of animal carollers wrapped up against the cold night air.
