Our Ten Favourite Gifts for the Home

Gifts for the Home

From Christmas 2022, read on to discover our top present picks for the home from our store that year.

Gifting something for the home, whether decorative, practical or purely to make the space feel more comforting, is a great way of bringing more heart into your loved ones’ everyday life. We’ve compiled a few ideas to offer some inspiration for you when considering your options.

Paul Smith Candle in Botanist

A bold statement piece that also smells amazing! The Botanist candle brings the scent of the garden inside with its peppery herb and citrus notes, encased in vibrantly coloured glass, the signature of designer Paul Smith.

Mouse Lamp

A quirky piece to raise a smile, this mouse lamp has been designed in an eccentric Italian style. Sure to provide a talking point in any home, it makes a great gift for someone who has everything!

Gold Mouse Lamp
Bird Song Box

Gift peace and serenity with the harmonies of happy birds. Triggered by motion, birdsong will play for two minutes and then the sound will gently subside unless further movement is detected. Clever, soothing and easy to operate.

Single Long Wool Chocolate Sheepskin Rug

Nothing evokes the feeling of ‘hygge’ (cosiness) in a home quite like a sheepskin rug. Soft and warm under your feet, thrown over a chair to add some extra comfort, or draped over a bed for texture and colour, a sheepskin of this quality and wonderfully deep chocolate colour is a practical choice and will be much appreciated.

Burford Stoneware Jug

A piece of stoneware is both wholesome and comforting, and this Burford designed jug is no different. The slightly speckled glaze is due to components in the clay and means every piece is slightly different.

Water-Rower Machine

Work off any Christmas indulgences with a piece of innovatively designed exercise equipment. Its waterwheel replicates the sound of water splashing as you row, as if you were hurtling along the Thames. A stylish investment piece that will repay you in fitness and convenience over the years to come.

Indoor Potted Hellebore

There is always someone notoriously difficult to buy for, but this potted hellebore is a sure winner. Hand-planted by our Houseplants team, it is beguiling with its delicate flowers and textured pot. We have chosen a Hellebore variety that flowers inside at Christmas, and can then be planted outside for appreciation the following year.
