For timeless cookware, add some Le Creuset pieces to your gift list. If you've seen Julie & Julia; the newly released cookery film featuring Meryl Streep, you'll see the iconic cast-iron casserole featured in the 1940s kitchen scenes. It was popular then and its still going strong. We love it in the classic white. From, £67.50, John Lewis (08456 049 049) - 15/09/2009
