Concrete Gift Ideas

Whether you are a DIY fanatic or need ideas of what to get for Christmas for friends and family, I hope my selection of concrete items will be an inspiration.

Concrete and Gold Jewellery Collection

The new jewellery collection by Konzuk (pictured above) celebrates concrete and uses concrete as the main design feature for the Orbis collection. The collection features polished concrete baubles in gradient shades of grey. The chunky man made stones are paired with elegant gold fittings giving it a surprisingly graceful look. An Orbis accessory by Konzuk could make a perfect, unique and possibly even an entertaining gift for someone special this Christmas.

Concrete Clock for a Contemporary Home

Not only can concrete decorate your body but it can also decorate your home. Designed by Marit Meisler for ceMMent Design studio in Jaffa, the old city in Israel, the objects like this clock are intended to bring an architectural feel to a contemporary home.

Concrete egg-and-spoon holder

Bored of having the same boiled egg every morning? How about changing your egg holder? This little concrete egg holder will entertain you in the morning due to its unusual nature. The egg holder has an embedded magnet which gives your spoon a spot to hang on and for you an inspiration to play with your breakfast.

This concrete egg holder was designed by designer Doreen Westphal from the Netherlands and it is a perfect cross between functionality and art.

8.0 Concrete Chair

Yes, concrete can look slick. This is a chair designed by a Vancouver based designer Omer Arbel and made using super strong concrete. If you like the philosophy behind shooting two birds with one stone, then you will enjoy this little piece of minimalist furniture which is designed to have two functions; a chair, or a table if turned sideways.

The chair is made by pouring concrete into a specially made mould and can serve as furniture for outdoors or indoors.
