It’s that time of year when we scramble to get the perfect gifts for the ones we love. If you’re looking for inspiration for gifts for family and friends who appreciate all things interior design, look no further – we have compiled a short list with solid suggestions that you can customise to suit your gift budget and your loved one’s individual style.
You might have family that tells you exactly what they want by providing you with a list of things they need. If not, a practical gift is a great option, especially if you know what they can benefit from around the house. Blankets and throws are perfect for a homebody and especially for a unit or house in colder climates. If your friend has a home office, technological accessories should be an option – consider buying accessories for desktops, laptops, tablets or phones – or all of the above! You can also shop around for smaller accessories like calendars and clocks that decorate any room and add a personal touch.
Does your family member love to spend time in the kitchen and entertain? For the amateur chefs in your life, consider a knife set, new utensils or versatile serving platters. For the baker, look for new dishes, accessories or even a cookbook with new ideas. For the perennial host, accessories for the bar are always a welcome gift, be it a beautiful bottle, cocktail kit or decanter; a set of tea cups and coffee mugs is an equally nice option.
We all know people who seem to have everything – they can often be the hardest to shop for, but a decoration for the home is always a welcome addition. Consider gifting either indoor or outdoor plants, vases, coasters, artwork, coffee table books or framed photos. Fake flowers look beautiful and don’t require upkeep.
If all else fails, a beautiful candle, diffuser or incense set makes a beautiful gift. Along the same lines, bath sets like shampoos, bath gel and lotion are always a hit. Some candles and fragrant gifts can even serve as a centrepiece on a table or shelf.
Happy shopping, and happy holidays from our team to you!
