PETER CLARK Dogs are for Christmas -- not just for life, is artist Peter Clark's message in his new show of collage paper pups.

Made with an intriguing mix of vintage paper, maps, love letters and other precious scraps, Clark's work will be on show and for sale, from [pounds sterling]400 plus VAT for unframed prints and up to [pounds sterling]4,000 for originals, such as this fabulous British bulldog (below), at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery, 28 Charlotte Street, W1 (020 7255 2828; r-h-g.co.uk).

LIBERTY For high kitsch that is difficult to match, check out the glittery tree decorations from Liberty which include stiletto shoes (above), red phone boxes, Sixties Mondrian-style frocks and dazzling peacocks, from [pounds sterling]3.50 each. Liberty is in Regent Street, W1 (liberty.co.uk).

NICOLE FARHI The fashion-to-homeware designer Nicole Farhi has come up trumps with this perfect blue martini glass (right) for Bombay Sapphire: it is large, heavier than you'd think and thoroughly in tune with all things Mad Men. It costs [pounds sterling]35 but looks stunning. The limited-edition glasses are only available from Nicole Farhi, 17 Clifford Street, W1 (020 7494 9051; nicolefarhi.com).

V&A MUSEUM SHOP Taking inspiration from the museum's exhibitions past and present, and from its permanent collection, the V&A shop is a great place to find quirky presents this year. We love the patterned stag heads (right, [pounds sterling]35 each). They are 35cm high, printed on board, easy to assemble and based on 18th- and 19th-century Italian textile designs. Also find festive decorations from only [pounds sterling]2. Visit the shop (better than the website), at the V&A, Cromwell Road, SW7 (020 7942 2000; vandashop.com).

GOLDSMITHS' COMPANY Hang hand-crafted silver Christmas tree decorations, made by designer-makers, from The Goldsmiths' Company's online directory to really make a show. …
