Life: Literary Gifts – Doris & Co

I love all things literary. If something has a literary quote on it, then I want it.

Recently I came across Doris & Co, who create gorgeous vintage-style homeware. As a lover of literary homeware, Doris & Co were kind enough to send me some goodies to test out.

I received two literary espresso mugs, perfect for sipping coffee while reading a book on a cold, wintery night. I exclaimed with glee as I opened my package, as they are just gorgeous!

The espresso mug on the left contains a Philip Larkin quotation, ‘Books; China; A life – Reprehensibly Perfect’. The espresso mug on the right contains a Raymond Carver quotation, ‘I’m grateful to you, you see – I wanted to tell you’.

These mugs would be the perfect literary gift this Christmas. Doris & Co have a wide range of gifts, pottery, homeware and kitchenware inspired by days-gone-by, literature and vintage prints.

I also received this tea towel which will look stunning in my kitchen. literary gifts doris & co

I love the Doris & Co products and if you’re looking for a literary or vintage gift this Christmas, these would be perfect.

    I wish I’d have known about these before Christmas, they’re absolutely lovely! It’d have been a million times easier to buy for my English course-mates at Uni. Mind, if they have a Tolkien mug with ‘not all those who wander are lost’ on it, I call dibs!

      Oh yeah – they’re perfect gifts for English students (I’m an ex-English student myself). I got an Alice in Wonderland mug this Christmas, it’s wonderful 🙂
