We’ve gone Brit mad the last few years with Royal weddings, the Olympics and various anniversaries. The most recent cause for celebration has been the Queen’s 90th birthday knees up!

But is there any patriotic merchandise out there that can stand the test of time and not look tacky in years to come?

Blanket Coverage

We love this throw from Room to Grow  – a wonderful company that sells great stuff for kids’ bedrooms.


However, we’d be happy with one of these striking red, white & blue Union Jack throw which makes a real statement piece for any room. It’s British made from 100% merino lambs wool and is perfect for snuggling up in front of a real fire. At £89.99, it’s really well made and looks like it will last for generations.

Cute Corgi

Certainly Wood loves dogs in any shape or form so we couldn’t resist this crocheted corgi wearing a jaunty crown.

It puts a smile on our face every time we look at it. This charismatic little chap is baby safe and is available from Born Gifted for £16.99.

Tea Ma’am?

English cream ware company, Doris & Co has created a mug fit for a Queen.

The ‘Our Queen, bless you’ mug costs £12.95 and has been made by hand in the UK and designed with an authentic Georgian shape. Find out more at Doris & Co.

Bags Of Fun

Beanbags are always useful to have whether it’s to provide extra seating inside the house or for lazing in the garden following an arduous BBQ.

This patriotic beanbag from ICON™ is part of their designer bean bag range and is super comfy and jolly cheerful. It is hardwearing and solidly made and costs from £97.99 at Bean Bag Bazaar.
