2 Minute ReadTrend Report by Jess Lacey


There are certain style trends that enter our collective consciousness and this festive season’s must-have gifts are of the copper variety. Rose gold might have had its moment, but 2022 is set to be all about the luxurious nature of copper. Copper is in itself, an impressive metal that humans have an ancient connection with. As the third most prevalent mineral within our bodies, we are highly in-tune with it; copper supports our metabolism, aids cell growth and also ignites a positive emotional state. The antibacterial properties of copper make it great for storing food or liquids, plus it’s gorgeous to look at, making copper gifts the biggest trend for Christmas 2021.
