Chilly's Emma Bridgewater Dogs Print | £25 at John Lewis
A personal favourite amongst the Real Homes team, between us all, we could probably deck out a whole house in all the Emma Bridgewater Dog print stuff we own. There are a few Emma Bridgewater prints on Chilly's bottles, actually (see one below), so if who you are buying for likes their design but isn't too fussed about dogs (cut them out of your life now), have a look at the other prints on offer.

Chilly's Turtle Bottle | £25 at John Lewis
This is just one example of how fab this brand is. This water bottle, and all the bottles in the Sea Life range, have been made in collaboration with Will the Artist and World Oceans Day. And 10 per cent of all the sales go to City to Sea, a campaign to reduce plastic pollution in our seas. Yes, Chilly's.

Chilly's Vacuum Insulated Travel Mug | £23 at John Lewis
Chilly's have launched a reusable cup too! They come in loads of cool patterns and colours and are the perfect size for a morning caffeine hit. Plus, with so many coffee shops now giving money off if you bring a reusable cup, you are also giving the gift of cheaper coffee – and who wouldn't want that?
