2018 Gift Guide | For the Home

If your pals are settling into a new place of their own or your sisters pinterest is an evolving collection of décor pieces, then you’re probably on the look out for something special to take pride of place in their home.

Homeware gifts are especially perfect for Christmas, offering a welcomed new-comber to brighten up the interior once all the festive sparkles have been boxed up and put away. Whether it’s a candle that they only light on Sundays, or glassware that outlives their party days, a good homeware gift goes the distance.

That’s why I’ve carefully selected the dreamiest of décor gifts below, from splash-out finds through to stocking fillers and personalised touches. Hopefully you’ll find something for everyone, and maybe even a little something for yourself!

Scents of Christmas Candle Set

Housed in the most beautiful crystal-inspired packaging, the limited edition Scent of Christmas gift set includes two incredible candles – Christmas Wish and Perfect Peace. The fragrance is entrancing, and so strong that I could smell them before I’d even opened up the box! NEOM is one my most cherished go-to brands, partly due to its feel-good philosophy that is embedded into each dreamy product. NEOM are passionate about creating harmonious scents that encourage wellness, relaxation and calmness , and during the busy Christmas period, I need this in abundance.

Christmas Wish is made up of 13 essential oils including mandarin, cinnamon and tonka bean, and it really does smell of all the charms and trimmings of Christmas. It’s a comforting and cosy scent that makes me instantly think of baking sweet treats and cosying up by the fire. It’s also a calming aroma that helps to relax and unwind in pure Christmas bliss.

Perfect Peach is fresh and uplifting scent created with 25 pure essential oils. Pine, myrrh and lime peel are stand out notes, creating a bright and joyful aroma that floods the room with a captivating fragrance.

I always light my favourite candles on those special days, when I need to relax, recharge or indulge. That’s why I think candles are so giftable, and perfect for so many people. They’re appreciated and treasured on the days that matter.

Beaded Swan Decoration

I absolutely love this little find! As a child my favourite films were the Nutcracker and the Swan Princess and this is a pretty perfect combination of them both. It is a Christmas decoration but could effortlessly adorn a shelf all year round. It’s intricate and enchanting, and a lovely little stocking filler for someone who loves adding whimsical and playful touches to their home.

Personalised Marble Coaster

Personalisation makes everything that little bit more special doesn’t it? These gorgeous marble coasters feature every letter in hammered gold and at just £3 each, make those #PinterestGoals easily achievable. These make the most fabulous gifts, especially alongside a bottle of their favourite tipple.

Tassel Wine Charms

If your secret santa loves a tipple, then these might be a good starting point. Wine – or gin – charms are a great way to add a little glamour to drinks with the girls. They’re also a great way of keeping track of who’s drink is who’s by the time the second bottles vanished. This set includes 6 tassels in varying shades of pink, and at £3 it’s an ideal stocking filler or secret santa gift.

Motivational Slogan Pencils

Not only is this pencil set worthy of a mention purely because of the colour palette (those beautiful blush and grey tones) but the slogans engraved in rose gold are just what you need when you’re on a mission. With lines such as ‘Future is Female’ and ‘Consider the Possibilities’ you can see why these are the prefect motivation for the go getter in your life. 

Matalan / £3 / Available here

Mistletoe Bottle Opener

One of my favourite bottle openers ever (I’ve accidently become a collector of them), this merry little addition to the drinks tray is perfect for the festivities.

Anthropologie / £12 / Available here

Light Up Wooden Star

This is currently sitting pride of place on my shelf as I type, and it’s just the prettiest thing. It’s a must for those who love the scandi trend, but also versatile enough to suit both traditional and modern décor tastes. It lights up too and a soft glistening glow can be seen through the intricate wood carving. I think I’ll be leaving mine out all year! 

Sainsburys / £7.50 / Available here

Wintertide & Garland Scented Candles

Miller Harris candles have a way of evoking feeling, flooding my surroundings with scents that uplift, soothe, leave me nostalgic or energised. The fact Miller Harris have captured the spirit of Christmas into a range of candles is pure festive joy. They smell truly incredible and set the mood throughout December. They are also beautifully wrapped in a silk scarf and pom pom that doubles up as an additional gift.
