Donna Wilson is a Scottish designer now living in London, and I can’t get enough of her wonderfully quirky designs. She set up her company after her final show at the Royal College of Art in 2003, where her range of knitted creatures completely sold out. Now she produces a range of tea towels, blankets, cushions and more. Everything is made by hand, and from UK based suppliers and manufacturers where possible.

I think that every one of her items has a beautiful charm to it, and makes them perfect gifts for adults and children alike.

We couldn’t mention Donna Wilson without featuring one of her famous knitted creatures, and Cyril the Squirrel Fox is easily my favourite. Yes, that’s right, a squirrel fox! Cyril is a cross between the two, and simply adorable. He’s knitted from lambswool, making him really soft and cuddly.

This beautiful blanket makes a perfect gift for any new babies. It’s 100% soft, warm lambswool, which is ideal for keeping babies warm in cooler weather or to snuggle up with as a comfort blanket. It’s sure to be a gift that will be cherished for years to come.

The great thing about this Make Your Own Monster Kit is that it could be given as a gift in two ways. If you know someone who’s a real craft fanatic, they’ll really enjoy letting their imagination run wild to create their terrifying monster. On the other hand, if you want to give someone a gift with a personal touch, why not make the monster first and then give them the finished result?

Donna Wilson’s fantastic range really does appeal to all ages, making them touching gifts for any occasion.
