Every year I tend to do one of these posts as I know what a minefield it can be coming up with cool Homeware Christmas ideas gifts in December, what with everything else going on. So this time I have written one with 30 ideas and three different budgets in mind so hopefully something to suit everyone.
Is it just me or does the festive period come round more quickly each time ? Even if this selection isn’t quite right for you, maybe you will find something that’s right at these stores.
I find online shopping a bit easier as it gets so busy out there, although there are some small independent shops that I try and always support as we all know what a difference it can make. There are some online here, and also I’ve added some great eco – focused places.
So to start with, we have £20 and under items.
I’ve wanted to write about Karina Mansfield for a while because she creates amazing illustrations that are really affordable like this Bowie one, or if you want something bespoke she does that too. We have one with my girls and I in Southwold and it’s really lovely. So I recommend her.
It wasn’t intentional to put in so many animal themed things but there were just so many unique things to choose from.
The sloth is very sweet and extremely reasonable from Sass and Belle.
We also have the House Plants book and it’s a great little read or coffee table number.
1. Basket Storage – The Basket Room 2. Pineapple Door Knocker – Bombay Duck 3. Brexit Egg Cups – V & A 4. Serving Set – Anthropologie 5. Rock on Candle – Audenza 6. Leaf Vase – Amara 7. Tool Box – Heals 8. Mirrors – Bohemia Design 9. Dog Wash – Aesop 10. Cushion – Anthropologie
Next are the £50 and under ideas. There’s a lot of choice so good to have narrowed it down a little. I’ve definitely written about The Basket Room before and happy to again as their ranges get bigger and I love a bit of Sisal. Such great colours. You must check them out.
The pineapple door knocker is divine. If we needed one, I’d have ordered a present to myself. Bombay Duck have been around for years and are definitely here to stay.
Those egg cups made me smile. Probably the first and last time Brexit will feature on my blog. The V & A gift shop is one of my favourite places to visit. They have great taste and it’s always full of inspiring things from their exhibitions.
If you want to really treat the pet in your life then Aesop do a lovely wash. For the pooch who has everything …
Candle – Matthew Williamson 2. Suitcase – Liberty London 3. Silver Vases – Nkuku 4. Pink Jug – Tate 5. Glass Birds – Pols Potten 6. Neon Sign – Oliver Bonas 7. Sisal Floor Mat – The Basket Room 8. Antiqued Brass Dice – Conran Store 9. Work Hard Framed Print – Oliver Bonas 10. Cactus Lamp – Trouva
I had some fun finding these. Mainly because I wouldn’t normally spend this amount on myself but when looking for other people, you can go to town a bit.
As you may know I ran a Matthew Williamson Home Fragrance giveaway last week to win one of his amazing candles. I’ve added here a different size and scent. we are still really enjoying the aroma in our kitchen. It gets nicer and nicer. This Winter Oud version would make a very special treat.
Liberty London make these little suitcases. So distinctive as always and a real keepsake – also the glass birds from Pols Potten are very unique. The colours are very pretty.
Oliver Bonas make some excellent Neon lamps, this one especially stood out as I used to work in a TV studio and the ‘ On Air ‘ words are very familiar. Maybe I am just making this selection to please myself really ?
If you like anything you see then you can click on the links below the images. Just so you know, I don’t make any commission at all. I’ve purely made this post up because I adore Christmas ! We just do Secret Santa here for adults these days so we try and make sure that the one thing we choose for someone is personal and an item that they will utilise.
Hope this has all been useful ? What are you up to over the festive period ?
