Whenever a new Etsy collaboration drops here are the YourHomeStyle headquarters, we can’t help but get excited.
So when we saw that Etsy had launched a new partnership – this time with Emmy-nominated Queer Eye star and style icon Tan France – it’s fair to say that our excitement levels went *pretty high*.
The ex-Zara director is, amongst other things, known for his impeccable taste, love of interiors and appreciation of everyday indulgences. So, when we heard that he’s spent months collaborating on a one-of-a-kind Christmas gifting collection, we knew it was going to be good.
Available until the end of the year, the collection is an 18 piece line of elevated homeware must-haves, handmade accessories and unique apothecary items, all perfect for treating those on your Christmas list (not forgetting yourself!).
The items in the line – handcrafted ceramic mugs, luxurious linen bathrobes and cosy slippers and more – all reflect Tan’s signature knack for integrating both masculine and feminine elements, and we couldn’t be more impressed.
‘I loved having the freedom to really curate a collection that speaks to an aesthetic that I know my audience will respond well to,’ said Tan, as he explained the inspiration behind the muted palette in this collection.

‘This holiday season, I believe that people are going to be more thoughtful and selective with their gifting. I hope that this collection offers buyers a chance to give the gift of something well made, and well considered. Something that the recipient knows has been selected specifically for them.’
Read on for our top five highlights from the range!
Cedar, Pine and Bergamot Candle, £14, HopscotchLondon
Smell is the strongest of the five senses, and the one that can impact our emotions the most. When it comes to our homes, selecting the right fragrance can make a huge difference to the overall feel of our space, and that’s why we love dressing each room with a different candle. If you’re a fan of clean, masculine fragrances, you’ll love the blend of cedar, pine and bergamot in this one by Hopscotch London. Did we mention the gorgeous, minimalist packaging? Try styling it with a mango wood tray on your bedside table to achieve a laid-back, Scandi-inspired look.
Ceramic Mugs, £30.70 for a pair, LittleWrenPottery
These handcrafted ceramic mugs from Little Wren Pottery are nothing short of dreamy. Made out of stoneware clay in Northallerton, North Yorkshire, they’re glazed in an on-trend neutral tone inspired by the colours of the British countryside. We think they’ll look incredible on coffee tables in modern and period properties alike – try teaming them with a metallic coaster to amp-up the luxury vibes.
Personalised, Eco Conscious Notebook, £17, Bluestiggy
Sometimes life can get a little bit overwhelming, and there are times when sitting down with a cup of tea and writing a list of ‘to-dos’ is the only way. This ‘Thoughts’ notebook by British textile artist Bluestiggy is perfect for the job, plus it’ll beautify any console table or worksurface that you choose to leave it on!
Robe Gift Set with Eye Mask and Pocket Square, £169, ThePrancingHare
They say the average person spends 33 years of their life in bed, so investing your bedtime can be more important than you think. This robe and eye mask gift set will add a luxury feel to your evenings and look beautiful hanging in any bedroom – we love the electric blue!
Chunky throw, £165 – £323, EVOKnit
When the winter months roll in and the evenings get colder, nothing beats a chunky knit thrown over the sofa. These ones from EVOKnit will add instant warmth and cosiness to your living room, plus they’re unbelievably Instagrammable… what’s not to love!
