Christmas Gifts for the Homeowner
What to buy someone that seems to have everything or has specific tastes can be quite a challenge. Here we have some ideas that will hopefully help you.
Lanterns are a pretty safe bet, they come in different sizes and qualities to suit budgets and taste. Stainless steel and glass fit well in both traditional and contemporary settings, don’t forget to buy a suitable candle to go with it.
It doesn’t matter how many you have, the more the better! A stylish frames sets off a photograph, they come in a variety of finishes and with varying prices. If you have a memorable and relevant photo, add that.
They come in all shapes, colours and sizes. It doesn’t matter if they already have some, the more the merrier, just make sure they will like the scent. Plain glass designs fit in any setting, or you can buy something special to suit individual tastes.
Everyone likes to indulge at Christmas, most of us like speciality chocolate or good shortbread, try some special flavours. If they like cheese, treat them to soething special or perhaps some really nicely packaged crackers.
Wine also tastes better from a nice glass. We’re spoilt for choice, there are some beautifully shaped plain glass designs available which will suit most tastes. Buy boxed ones as gifts, it looks better and it’s easier to wrap. Keep to known designers if you wish to add more to their collection in future years.
Soaps and Lotions
We all love the luxury liquid soaps and lotions on offer in good hotels but most of us resent buying them for ourselves. That’s why they make ideal presents, companies like Heyland and Whittle and Molton and Brown have some perfect gift sets.
If the recipients of your gifts are partial to a drink, then there is a lot on offer. The explosion in craft beer and gin makers has widened the choice on offer with some unusual tastes to explore, many come in gift boxes.
Yes, an old favorite but there are some great designs in the shops both classic and revived traditional designs. Stick to natural materials and look out for UK made. You can add some gloves if you want to look more generous!
