Our Naughty vs. Nice Secret Santa Wishlist

’Tis the season of office Secret Santa, unwanted gift buying and unadulterated indulgence! Yes it is that time of year when your nearest and dearest and creative colleagues, sweat and fret about what to get you for the great big gift exchange on the 25th of December, the desired result being a genuine ear to ear smile from the intended recipient. We would like to help and inspire!

Here at BBI we love a bit of designery finery and a general appreciation of beautiful needless products, gadgets and luxuries (call us stereotypes but so what, bah to you!) On this vein, I asked the team to put in their requests for their I WANT and also their I DON’T WANT lists. Our choices are an interesting mix, they range from exuberant ideals to the simple, yet satisfying pleasures in life. Your naughty could be someone else’s nice and vice versa, anyway we’ll let you make up your own mind…

 

gifts1

Nice

If you can’t have the real thing there’s always a second best!

Naughty

Anything with a pug on! Perhaps controversial to some.

 

gifts2

Nice

It’s stupid and ridiculous and unnecessary but I still want it. Like that it’s techy but also low-fi and personal.

Naughty

I’ll go with the socks because I hate Helvetica and socks are not a suitable Christmas present!

 

gifts3

Nice

I like a bit of cooking and appreciate a good knife so my luxury item would be something like this.

Naughty

Now, I apologise in advance if anyone is a fan but the gift I would never want to get is any form of 90’s R&B album.

 

gifts4

Nice

It’s a spaceship, its a cow, it’s a spaceship abducting a cow… And it’s a lamp. What’s not to love!?

Naughty

You know you’ve gone full hipster when even your car has a silly moustache. Never go full hipster!

 

gifts5

Nice

A little gaff cabin thing to plonk in a field.

Naughty

And a nice new inflatable suit to wear in it.

 

gifts6

Nice

I don’t need this need this but I’d love to have this beautiful dress which is a work of art too!

Naughty

I would never want to receive a present made of a dead animal.

 

gifts7

Nice

Keyboard waffle maker for me please!

Naughty

I definitely wouldn’t want this USB Pet Rock.

 

gifts8

Nice

For my nice thing I’ll go for something on my Christmas list. My best friend showed me this photographer a while ago and I’ve had my eye on this particular print ever since. I like it especially because it reminds me of cool women.

Naughty

My boyfriend is absolutely obsessed with the idea of getting loads of bean bags for our flat. I think if he were to present me with a bean bag chair at Christmas I would probably move out.

 

gifts8

Nice

As I rarely get the time to relax, when I do, I like a good hot soak. Therefore I would choose this luxury retreat.

Naughty

But definitely not the wheely bin bath.

 

gifts9

Nice

A Charles Eames Lounge Chair in Espresso leather and oiled Walnut please!

Naughty

I don’t like Crackers.  Especially these ones from Aldi.

 

gifts10

Nice

Diamond Cartier cufflinks.

Naughty

This one needs no explanation.

 

gifts11

Nice

Has to be this Braun KF20 designed by Florian Seiffert (moustache shot here), see here’s a couple of shots of it on Nostromo in Alien. 😍

Naughty

This. No.

 

gifts12

Nice

Taylor Made M1 Driver – An adjustable golf clubs that allows you to alter the mechanics based on how crap your swing is.

Naughty

The most pointless accessory in the whole world. Nobody has any use for these…
