Whether it’s secret Santa or your significant other, gift buying can be extremely hard and exhausting. If you have a home lover, an interior design protégé, or a keen renovator on your Christmas list, here is a list of the top gifts and knick knackers for any home lover. 

Let’s start off with the small items! Perfect for stocking stuffers or Secret Santa gifts. 

Luxe-looking glassware is always a great gift! A timeless classic, the Luxe Coupe Glasses from Mr. Consistent are always a crowd favourite. Best for toasting a special occasion or simply enjoying a cocktail , this set of 4 coupe glasses are ideal for entertaining friends, family, or yourself too. With a cold cut rim and an elegant length of stem, your Mr. Consistent cocktail will become the ultimate Instagram moment. Why not add a touch of glamour? Why not buy a bottle of the best-selling Mr.Consistent Cosmopolitan mix to top it off? 

Nothing screams Christmas more than the scent of candy canes and sugar plums. Glasshouse candles have just released their limited edition 2021 Christmas Candles, and who doesn’t love candles right? The two signature candles are: 

Naughty & Nice – A brand new & deliciously zingy fragrance inspired by peppermint candy canes. No matter which of Santa’s lists you fall on this year – naughty or nice – this is one treat you can get into.

Night Before Christmas – The magic of Christmas supersized in our cult-favourite festive fragrance that every holiday lover should own.

Both are housed in an extremely festive red glass canister. 

  • Reusable Items

Sustainability has been a massive trend this year, with single-use items getting the flick! Good quality and trendy reusable items are a great gift idea, and there are a heap on the market. We love these ones:

Pottery For the Planet Keep Cup – These reusable stoneware coffee cups are perfect for drinks on the go. Or remove the lid and add a little colour to your home collection. All cups are handmade and one of a kind. You will receive a ceramic cup with a silicone lid similar to the cups pictured but there are no two the same. Variations in size, colour and markings is what make them unique!

  • Vase 

Vases are a great gift, even better if you fill them with flowers. Nowadays they have also become somewhat of a statement piece and there are so many beautiful ones on the market. We love the coloured crystal vibe, and the terracotta look at the moment. Shop some of our faves here:

  • Room Spray 

Set the mood and add a touch of decadence with amazing lingering room sprays. They add such a luxurious feel to a space and are that perfect little extra gift for any home lover. 

Baies Room Spray Diptyque – One of the French fragrance house’s most iconic scents, its name translates to berries, with the scent being made of a perfect blend of freshly picked blackcurrant berries and blooming roses. With a few spritzes, the scent will fill the room lifting it with a sweet and inviting freshness.

Coloured bed linen is all the rage right now, and there is no better feeling than new, fresh sheets. So why not treat someone (or yourself) to some great quality bedding. Buttery soft, pre-washed and designed to last, this pure 100% French flax linen bedding makes the whole bed feel like the cool side of the pillow.

The clean, vintage-inspired aesthetic fits into any space, while the lightweight design allows this record player to travel “further than anyone, or anything in history.” Spin 33 1/3, 45, or 78 RPM records or launch the built-in Bluetooth receiver to transmit your digital music wirelessly through the turntable’s stereo speakers — but with the added option to pair it with your favourite external speakers via Bluetooth output.
