A Gift That Keeps on Giving

Our top picks this festive season

Gift guide

As all Anglepoise lamps made since 2020 have a Guarantee for Life, they are the gifts that keep on giving. Not only are they designed to last a lifetime, they can be passed on from generation to generation (and often are!).

Check out our top picks to see a sparkling selection of lamps that will bring joy and illumination to any lucky recipient this festive season.

With a range that includes bold and beautiful desk lamps, opulent brass features or even neutral painted finishes, these task lights will become treasured gifts, whether they shine across a desk, a favourite book or a hobby corner.

Neutral Painted Finishes

90 Mini Mini

This mini wonder was named one of the best desk lamps of 2022 by Wirecutter in The New York Times, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a playful miniature classic with a versatile USB connection that will be at home beside your laptop screen, on a shelf, or even in Santa’s workshop.

The Anglepoise Story

Spring Light

A design lovers dream, the Anglepoise Story. Beautifully written by Jonathan Glancey, an award winning architectural critic and writer whose previous roles include architecture and design editor at The Guardian. Our first ever book, published in 2021 explores and shares the history and evolution of Anglepoise. With treasured tales and never seen photographs, it’s a story not to be left untold.  

National Trust Editions

Mini Table Lamp

With every sale giving back to the National Trust, this is the perfect gift for those who love treasured objects. Anglepoise will give a minimum of £20,000 to the National Trust in 2022/23 and the money will be spend restoring The Homewood in Surrey. That’s not a bad story is it?

An Iconic Staple

Original 1227 Desk Lamp

Designed in 1935 by our founders the Terry Family, this legendary task lamp is a triumph of form and function. With its timeless style and famously responsive spring-loaded mechanism, it’s the very definition of an Anglepoise.
