John Lewis My First Wooden Stacking Rings
6. You get the feeling Mum wants 20-minutes’ peace and quiet Ask a teething toddler whether or not they prefer wooden or plastic toys and… well, they'll probably just grin and take another bite of whatever toy is close to hand. Luckily, this stacker toy's chunky and durable wooden rings are designed to take the wear and tear. Plus, it's finished with felt ears for a slightly softer, final triumphant chomp once they've solved the puzzle to their liking.

John Lewis Wooden Hammer Bench
7. Yes, banging something really can make you feel better Toddler tantrum incoming? We've got this. Time to unveil My First Wooden Hammer Bench. To them, it's something to bash and take out frustrations on. But what's really happening, as they hammer away at those five wooden pegs, is the development of fine motor skills and hand-to-eye coordination. But let's not over analyse the appeal – sometimes it's fun just to thump things with a hammer.

John Lewis Kids' Plain Teddy Coat, Green
13. Dressing up for a day out with the grandparentsYou'd be more likely to see a bouclé coat on the catwalk than in the classroom but this textured fabric is designed to be super soft and cosy as well as classy. The French word bouclé meaning 'curled' or 'ringed' refers to the yarn made from a series of looped fibres. We've cut it to a longer length for extra coverage and warmth and added two handy patch pockets.

14. That’s it, comfort dressing sorted for life This all-in-one outfit helps to take some of the stress out of getting them dressed. First, you've got the top underneath. Sure, you can't go wrong with a classic jersey, but this also has ruffle detailing on the cuffs. Then you've got the star of the show: the dungarees. We've gone for an all-over leaf print to bring just a touch of nature to the nursery.

18. Your love affair with denim starts today A standard shirt in denim might be good for grown-ups, but we thought a kids' version needed a little more zhuzh (trust us, it's a technical term – don't feel like you need to look it up). So, the cuffs are elasticated for comfort, there are shiny buttons down the front and we've finished with flair by adding an oversized Peter Pan collar, because we know they just grow up too quickly.

19. Splash in as many puddles as you likeCosying up to this top's borg texture is pretty much like having a soft bear hug. The fabric is super comfortable and it's been made from recycled materials – your little one might be too little to care about that right now, but we think that you do. Designed with a funnel neck for warmth, the fleece has a half-zip neck for ventilation should it get too toasty.

2pc Set Leaf Print Cord Dungaree Set
23. From bear hunts to play dates, you’re ready for adventuresYou've probably noticed the riptape fastenings on these trainers because if you've ever had to bend over, tie up the laces, do a double knot to make sure they actually come home wearing both shoes, and then re-do it all because they're too tight – you’ll know why. Plus the tough leather upper means they're more than capable of handling a puddle or two.

Collage Connect Rug, L180 x W120 cm, Natural
27. Portable and guaranteed to cheer up any rental Art enthusiasts might theorise that the forms and tones in the design take inspiration from abstract pioneers like Kandinsky; art non-enthusiasts might say it’s just a load of shapes and colours. However you interpret it, the robust wool blend of the rug is hand-tufted, with a subtle variation in finish and texture between the coloured sections.
THOUGHTFULLY DESIGNED
John Lewis Birdseye Semi Plain Wool Regular Fit Suit Trousers, Navy
28. Suited and booted for your first job interview Super 100 is a measure of how fine the wool is, with a higher number translating to a finer wool which will feel softer. Just because this is a ‘sensible’ suit doesn’t mean it’s stuffy to wear. The 100% merino wool was chosen for all-day comfort, and it’s fully lined in navy. A matching jacket is available to complete the look.

John Lewis Double Faced Check Wool Blend Overcoat, Charcoal
29. Killing it on the commuteOur designers have dubbed this ‘the daddy of all overcoats’, and with good reason. At 740g in weight, this is a substantial garment that’s in a classic Glen check in a go-anywhere shade of grey; on the inside, a puppytooth weave. This makes it supremely warm, plus inside, there are two internal chest pockets, carefully sized to hold your wallet and phone.

Naturally, we've designed them in a wide leg cut that’s flattering and effortlessly cool. We've made a few trousers in our time, and know that fit is king.

John Lewis Corduroy Notch Lapel Regular Fit Suit Jacket, Copper
32. They said yes to a second date, so you’ve upped your fashion gameThe thinking man’s fabric of choice, corduroy, is soft to the touch and gets better with age. This cordy co-ord is 14 wales [Fact fans: ‘wales’ being the wiggly ribs – measured per inch – that give corduroy its unique texture. High numbers = feel more formal, low = more informal] making it a mid-level, suits-all occasions kind of suit.

John Lewis Wool Blend Long Coat, Bright Blue
34. New job, new attitude, new armourStill dressed in neutrals? Time to paint a bolder look. Our autumn-ready long coat is a great place to start. Full of confidence in a bright cobalt blue (an all-time favourite shade of many a fashion editor and soon to be yours), the coat’s distinctive texture is owed to an exaggerated cavalry twill – a pattern originally used in military clothing.

John Lewis Gift Leather Rope Chain Loafers, Mid Green
35. For the comfiest commute everDesigned from supple leather, these loafers have been designed using the ‘sachetto’ method. Translating to ‘little bag’, sachetto construction creates a shoe that is practically seamless and also super soft and flexible, cocooning the foot like a glove. It's finished with a twist chain trim that adds a touch of metallic polish to the leather's pop of green.

36. That’s your first pay cheque spent Inspired by a 1950s handbag found on the shelves of a Parisian vintage shop, this is a little bag that can-can. It accordions out to fit all your necessities and has a detachable shoulder strap so it can convert it from a shoulder bag into a clutch. The finishing touch is a sleek gold-toned turnlock, inspired by a clasp design found in the John Lewis Design Archives.

John Lewis Leckford Stoneware Dinner Plate
39. A ready meal, but make it fancy Our kiln-fired stoneware plates are tougher than earthenware, so will resist chips and more boisterous handling. The relatively soft and undefined lip of the plate provides a generous eating area that can help to minimise mishaps and spills, and the ridged lip was inspired by the mushrooms grown on our estate in Leckford (hence the name).

John Lewis Arc Cutlery Set, 56 Piece/8 Place Settings
40. Christening the kitchen of your very first homeA lot of thought goes into designing our cutlery, because it’s the thing you handle everyday. So from the weight and length of the handle, to the composition of the stainless steel to resist corrosion or blunting over time, we want it to seem effortlessly well designed, because a lot of effort went into designing it. Every knife, fork and spoon is dishwasher safe and etched with the John Lewis name, a reassuring mark of quality.

There’s foam in the side cushions to create a comfortable structure that's easy to maintain and doesn't need constant plumping, plus resilient eight-gauge springs across the length of the sofa with robust wire threaded throughout the seat, so there's no chance you'll sink into a corner or disappear down the sides.

49. Remember when Saturday mornings didn’t involve cheering from the sidelines Chore jackets traditionally employ durable and hardwearing materials: in this case, it’s a 100% dry oil wax designed to take rain showers in its stride. Wax coating is a natural, highly effective way of providing water resistance. For the collar and cuffs, soft brown corduroy prevents rubbing or chafing and inside the jacket is fully lined with Blackwatch tartan and diamond-quilted for warmth.

We've used walnut wood and MDF in this table. Walnut is known for its attractive grain and durability, and by mixing in MDF sections we can provide walnut's weight and appealing presence at a competitive price. Coin's name makes the most sense when viewed from above – its round top is bordered with a tactile pattern like the textured edge of a coin.

68. For those tricky interseasonal weekendsThis corduroy overshirt is finished with natural corozo nut buttons. Corozo is a nut that grows on the South and Central American Tagua tree, and it makes for a hard, dense button with a fine marbled grain. The wale (the vertical ribs) used here are a bit larger than usual so it will hold its shape well – just what you need for a shirt that doubles up as outerwear.

John Lewis Fusion Souk Kelim Rug
69. Yes, time for the Waitrose run Like dad jokes, the best material is recycled, so that’s why we’ve made this jumper from over 50% recycled polyester. And because it was made with performance in mind, we've added a touch of wool for additional warmth. We've also ensured it will earn its stripes in real life by asking our partners to road-test it for over 100 hours just to make sure it stands up to the rigours of everyday wear.

Spun from blended fabric with 80% certified wool (for excellent temperature regulation) our Donegal Raglan equals no more faff and no more need for scarves. Just 100% cosy comfort.
