THIS LITTLE PIGGY: Save for the year ahead with Harry Allen's designer piggybank. This cool but expensive little piece (45cm wide by 25cm high) is made from resin (€210 from www.aprilandthebear.com).
What may appear as a cluster of little vases designed to hold individual flowers is in fact a single seven-hole vessel. Why would you bother? Try filling it seven times and you'll get the point (€5 from www.tiger-stores.ie).
The Cucchino Clock is a bit of a luxury but it's nice to see a contemporary rendition of the good old cuckoo clock, now designed with a light-sensitive cuckoo that switches off at night (€264 from www.amara.com).
Interiors are crawling with hedgehogs this year. This one's handmade in Nepal by Sew Heart Felt, which provides sustainable, traditional work for rural women (€89.95 from www.miramira.ie).
