Get ready for these cleverly-designed vases to elevate your flower arranging talents

Flowers. We love gifting them, we love receiving them, but let's face it, not everyone has a knack for arranging them. But rather than being left to our own clueless devices, tulip vases are the homeware hack all anthophiles need in their life – the valve-like vessels with multiple slots for individual stems or small clusters of blooms will help you give Nikki Tibbles a run for her money. For an investment piece, Marloe Marloe's glazed ceramic vase (£390), Ali Hewson's small wavy tulipiere (£525) and Bloomsbury Market's green ceramic vase (£86.99) stay true to their pottery roots, but modernist fans won't be able to go past Rosenthal's contour gold vase (£160).

A key player in the tulip vase game, Dutch homeware brand Heinen Delfts Blauw boasts a statement colour-block selection in its Klei range – its pink heart vase (£30) and green cylinder vase (£45) double up nicely as all-year-round centrepieces – while the undulating indentations in Nordic Nest's tulip vase (£22) veer more on the moody side. If you're a fan of blue and white Chinoiserie print, Velvet Victoria Home's blue and white tulip vase (£38) blends the worlds of classic and modern, while Stone The Crow's deep emerald tulipiere (£45) wouldn't look out of place on an artfully-arranged side table in Soho House. Bouquets just got a whole lot less intimidating…

This powerful short drama delves into the dark reality of violence against women

"What we can't get our head around is why we're so fucking killable?" This quote sums up both the message of the BBC's new one-off drama Maryland, and how so many of us feel about the ongoing violence inflicted on women. The 25-minute show by award-winning writer Lucy Kirkwood is the TV adaptation of her 2021 play shown at the Royal Court – a fictional show but inspired by real-life events, including the murders of Sarah Everard, Bibaa Henry, Nicole Smallman and Sabina Nessa. It sees Hayley Squires (Adult Material, The Essex Serpent) and Zawe Ashton (Fresh Meat, The Handmaid's Tale) both playing women called Mary, who meet while they're at a police station to report their sexual assault by the same man, and whose stories are soundtracked by a searing chorus of Furies.

"Maryland is not a fun watch, but neither is it supposed to be," says Stylist's entertainment director Helen Bownass. "It touches on many of the things we have normalised to keep ourselves safe: walking with keys between fingers, questioning ourselves for being out alone at night. With women's lives continuing to be threatened on a daily basis – just this month, both Zara Aleena and Hina Bashir lost their lives – it's depressingly urgent viewing for every single person." 10pm tonight, BBC Two and iPlayer
