With happiness inducing properties, these Moroccan Wool Pots from Bohemia Design would make the perfect addition to a home with a white colour scheme – or as a gift for an interiors obsessive with eclectic taste.

Perfect for storing knick knacks, or for housing small (but special) house plants, we’re sure they would make a welcome addition to any home. While we’re on the subject… lots more house plant display ideas in our gorgeous gallery, too.

2. Stylish glasses for gin enthusiasts

With gin growing in popularity (and rightly so) we love the idea of gifting a pair of gorgeous glasses to fellow gin enthusiasts. Find this gin goblet set (of two) at Oliver Bonas.

Looking for the perfect accompaniment? Pair with Edinburgh Gin’s Rhubarb and Ginger Liqueur or Firebox Flamingo Tears Pink Grapefruit Gin and hey presto, gift perfection.

3. Gift the cactus trend

According to the headlines, cacti are the new pineapples, meaning they’re guaranteed to make a great gift for interiors obsessives this Christmas.

We love this Mini Cactus Vase from Abode Living, which looks equally as adorable paired with stemmed leaves as it does on its own.

4. Choose a table lamp with Scandinavian influence

Trying to find a gift for a friend who can’t get enough of Scandinavian design? This Normann Copenhagen Cap Table Lamp from Hurn & Hurn is stylishly minimalist in its design, making a statement that’s striking yet understated. You can grab it in a variety of colours to suit any interior.

5. A low-maintenance home office beautifier

An ideal gift for a colleague or friend who works from home, terrariums are effective in sprucing up and injecting life into a tired looking desk space.

Teamed with a stylish succulent, it doesn’t get much prettier than this Geometric Terrarium from Not on the High Street.

6. Share a memory in a delicate hanging glass frame

A simple, but sentimental gift that’s perfect for a good friend, we love the idea of filling these Delicate Hanging Glass Frames from Cox & Cox with memories; be that a photograph, postcard, pressed flower, ticket or wedding invitation.

7. A cool and cosy throw blanket

‘Tis the season for nights snuggled up watching Christmas films, meaning this Faustine Tasselled Throw Blanket from Anthropologie makes for the perfect addition to an interiors lover’s home. Success guaranteed.

8. Give a homeware gift with a story

Like the idea of a skillfully handcrafted gift that has the added benefit of supporting a great cause? This I Can I Am Tablecloth from Arthouse Unlimited supports the work of Arthouse Unlimited, a collective of artists living with complex epilepsy and learning difficulties whose passion for producing artworks is channelled into the production of designer items.

9. Give an oh-so-Instagrammable gift

Have a friend that loves Instagramming their home? This Gold Letter Board from Oliver Bonas could be the gift for them.

Perfect for styling with cute catchphrases, shopping lists or messages for your other half, they’re a stylish addition to any contemporary home.

10. A subscription to Real Homes or Period Living mags

We know we would say this but Real Homes magazine is a fab read – as well as being a great reference for anyone looking to transform their home. A subscription means your giftee will have all the latest on updating their home, whether owned or rented, and whether they’re on a budget or splashing out on a forever family home. It covers the latest decorating trends, too. Do they love period or vintage decor? Why not double up with a subscription to Period Living mag too? You know it makes sense.

11. A Moroccan-inspired mirror perfect for contemporary homes

With a stylish, copper-toned finish, we love the Moroccan influence behind this gorgeous Kasabah Mirror from Cox & Cox. Its lightweight design and unique shape make an understated impact that’s perfect for a bedroom, living room or hallway.

12. Kitchen utensils they wouldn’t buy for themselves

The best Christmas presents are those that the recipient would love, but probably wouldn’t buy for themselves. Enter the gorgeous Eres range from Anthropologie.

Pick from a Pie Dish, Spoon Rest, Salt and Pepper Shakersor Butter Dish, each adorned with intricately designed, floral patterns, and spruce up the kitchen of the home lover in your life.

13. A kettle unlike any other

When it comes to choosing gifts for the home owner who has everything, thinking outside of the box is key.

We love this Smeg Dolce & Gabbana Kettle, with its vibrant, Italian inspired design. The unique and luxurious feel of this designer item makes it a special gift for Christmas.

14. An industrial-inspired, on trend terrazzo planter

For friends or family members whose taste is more industrial-inspired, this set of on trend terrazzo Hakuun Planters from Made makes a stylish gift.

The perfect platform for plants that need to live indoors, planters allow you to make more of a feature from your green friends, while ensuring the home doesn’t feel cluttered. Pssst! Tell your friends they can look for house plant display ideas in our feature, too.
