With the celebrations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee starting already and regular news of souvenir products being launched, we are on the look out for the best mementoes and memorabilia for your home. Here are just a few of our favourites so far but we will have our eyes open in the run-up to weekend of festivities in June and will report back on our findings!

We just love these handmade decoupage wooden hanging hearts – they would look lovely used individually but a hanging row of them, bunting style would look fabulous!   The shabby shade £5 each

This charming little print is gorgeous in black and gold – perfect to mark the jubilee but a keepsake I suspect you will want to have for many years to come.   Not on the High Street (door 77) £17.50 20cm x 20cm

These kids’chairs are hand decorated from reclaimed vintage chairs and the one featured in the centre of the picture has been designed to commemorate the jubilee year. The only drawback is that they are child sized as I am sure that will leave quite a few adults disappointed!  Mama Lally £200

No jubilee tea party would be complete without a big pot of tea kept warm by a commemorative tea cosy and this one from Ulster Weavers is absolutely delightful.  Not on the High Street £15

Well I just could not resist these! Highly functional as the outstretched arms fit over your cup so the tea bag gives you the perfect cuppa – however, I would defy you to use them, they are just too lovely, not to mention funny.   The Present Finder £6.99

Clever Emma Bridgewater has brought out a lovely range of products with a jubilee feel and I was rather spoilt for choice with what to pick. However, it had to be this tin with the corgi on the top – perfect for the office biscuits I think.  Emma Bridgewater £13

I really like this framed button collage from Graham and Green – beautiful as a whole but also lovely close up, some really charming jubilee themed buttons.  Graham and Green Queen framed button art £285

And finally, Jan Constantine has not let us down – her range of jubilee inspired cushions and bunting are absolutely gorgeous. I just couldn’t pick a favourite one so I am afraid you will have to visit the website and drool over the whole range for yourselves. Jan Constantine Cushions and bunting
