10 CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS – 8. Bugatti Vera Electric Kettle

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

With astonishing looks, the ultimate present for mum’s kitchen this Christmas is the Vera Electric Kettle by Bugatti.

Great design isn’t just about good looks. It’s about creating useful products that make your life simpler and easier… but a sexy sleek exterior certainly does help!

Bugatti is at the forefront of Italian design, and their Vera Kettle is a stunning example of function and style. Made from lacquered die-cast metal, the kettle features a unique cone shape that is stylish and boils water up to 25% quicker than other kettles. The Vera sits on a 360˚ power base, so you can position it where you like in the kitchen, and it is fully cordless and portable.

Plus, half of the great features of the Vera are not in the kettle, but in its cool angular handle. It features integrated electronic controls that allow you to perfectly control the temperature of your water, as well as a timer that uses the in-built clock to let you set when the kettle will boil. Simply press the button, and the kettle will be boiled and ready for your tea break!

If you want a stunning kitchen appliance that is as useful as it is good looking, then don’t look past Bugatti. Italian design, at its very best!

Available at all good department stores, including Peter’s of Kensington for around $330.

Sydney’s premiere wedding venue at the Sydney Opera House will hold 2 sessions this year: Lunchtime from 12:00pm – 2:00pm and a Gala Evening Session from 6:00pm.

The event is all about brides and grooms mingling with Sydney’s elite in the wedding industry, and taking their advice and suggestions on everything to make your day memorable.

You’ll be treated like stars, with champagne and canapés upon arrival. You will be able to pick up insider tricks of the trade as you chat one on one about your upcoming nuptials while strolling through the interactive and visually stunning booths.
