Christmas is almost here, and Doris is well aware that those gift lists needs ticking off. So, to help you organise your Christmas lists for loved ones, friends, and family, here’s our top Doris ambassador’s gift guide!

Sally Morgan-Moore is one of Doris’s biggest fans!

Here’s her lowdown on what to get for whom for Christmas!

Why do you love Doris?

I love Doris because it is chic, comforting, quality.

What would you get for your best friend?

For my best friend…coffee. I’ve actually already sent her a selection box of our favourite coffees on a whim the other day, not for Christmas, but just because I was thinking of her. I miss our coffee breaks together, but we try and keep them at the same time as one another these days, so that even when we’re apart we’re not breaking tradition. Doris is the perfect coffee cup, and old friends are best!

What would you get for Mum?

If Mum were here with us this year and not watching me from her obviously incredibly comfy cloud, I’d absolutely buy her a Doris mug (and I’m not just saying it). She was a huge fan of her tea (almost 6 cups a day!!), and got through endless “run of the mill” mugs in her time. A Doris mug would have been her sturdy favourite for decades, I’m sure!

We love that Mum’s are ‘Made of Stern Stuff‘…

What would you get for the tea lover?

I’d make sure they were enjoying the joys that loose leaf brings! A nice afternoon tea strainer too, perhaps. And no surprise again, SURELY a Doris mug, right? A “Beloved” one, for their “Beloved Tea”.

What would you get as a surprise gift for anyone?

I’m quite good at surprise gifts (I think, anyway). I once “ta-dahhh’d” a really good friend a St. Bart’s Pathology mug once during a taxidermy trip…She’s just gained distinction in a Masters in Death. I love her a tonne. Or a Doris jug is a fantastic surprise gift! The messages are fantastic.

Why Doris makes the perfect Christmas gift….

Well naturally the products are beautiful, but for me it’s the personality behind the brand which is really held dear with me. I love the term “loveability” used, and sharing the aura of home and comforts, as well as the importance of sentimental moments. I’ve lived in so many different places, and mixed with so many different types of people, but as cliche as it sounds – home is always where my heart (and tea) is. No matter how often I flit about, my heart is full of memories to keep me centered. I feel like Doris believes in this one too!
