As someone who has been married for 7 years it can be hard for people to buy presents for not only me, but John as well. Sometimes, there isn’t really anything we want or need but the house is somewhere that ALWAYS needs something. This doesn’t just go for people who have been married as long as we have been, but it could also be for someone who has just moved in somewhere new, or maybe a young couple moving in together. Here are some cool Christmas gift ideas for the home.
Make a statement right at your front door with the Nintendo controller doormat from Red Candy. Any retro gaming fan will love seeing this in their home and I’m sure it will be something that guests talk about when they come to visit.
Dinner parties might not be in everyone’s plans at the moment but there’s nothing to say you can’t fix up a delicious feast for yourself and your family at home. This beautiful serving board from Sous Chef is a great place to serve up some snacks or starters!
I love pretty tableware and Christmas is the perfect excuse to buy something fabulous. This year the Frosted Pines collection from Sara Miller London for Portmeirion is an easy choice. Why not start with the set of four placemats or maybe even go for a bigger selection to really get someone kitted out.
Christmas doesn’t have to be all about turkey, mince pies and mulled wine. Send something different this year with the Festive Food Survival Kit from Spice Pots, which includes 3 Savoury Curry Spices (Mild, Medium and Hot In Heat) and 1 Sweet Spice for festive desserts and baking, as well as 8 festive food recipes.
Something a bit more fun for the kitchen is this super adorable set of magnets showing cats doing different yoga poses from Kikkerland. Of course, the magnets can go on any metal surface so they don’t have to be used only in the kitchen. These little bundles of feline fun can really help to make a space much more interesting.
When you own a home, or even rent, there are some things that you sometimes put last on the list of things to be. For us, this is new bedding. A gift such as a new floral bedding set would be especially nice for someone who loves a good lie in!
Gifts for the home don’t have to be just for adults. Children love new things for their bedrooms and I personally love these Educational Vintage Charts from Ink&Drop. They really add something fun and different to a room and they would look amazing framed!
Over the years we have picked up some really love Willow Tree figurines and they are a great thing to collect. This year, my favourite is the Ever Remember figurine by Willow Tree and it would make a lovely addition to any collection, or be the first piece to start one.
There’s nothing like snuggling up to a good film in the winter with the lights down low. The Family Christmas candle from Kindred Fires will help add a bit of light and warmth to a room on those cold evenings, and make it lovely and cosy.
Of course, you’ll also need something to light your candle with. I hate messing about with small lighters or matches so the Zippo rechargeable candle lighter is a fantastic alternative. It features a safety lock, flexible neck and charging cables!
This year we, and a lot of other people, have spent time giving their garden makeovers or just adding something a bit extra. We have created a corner of the garden designed to attract more wildlife. If you know someone who might like to do something similar then the Essentials Plus Seed Feeder, along with a bag of bird seed, from Henry Bell would make a wonderful gift. It’s something that can be used over and over again and can be enjoyed in the garden all year round.
