It won’t come as a surprise to you (not if you’re a regular reader anyway) that I’m an interiors addict. And as such, I love a gift that’s been especially chosen for the home. Give me a framed print, a faux fur throw, or a set of champagne glasses over a new pair of slippers any day. And I can’t understand why more people don’t choose home accessories as gifts. It’s the perfect solution to a lot of gift-giving dilemmas. You can always find something within your budget, you don’t have to know what size to buy, whether ears are pierced or not, or if the recipient is allergic to wool. I am by the way, so please don’t buy me a woolen scarf.
It’s also a good idea to buy couples something for the home too, especially if they are just starting up. After all you can double the budget and buy something that will last forever. It does help if you know their style of course but there are lots of gifts for the home that will suit all tastes so if you choose carefully you should make the right choice. Even young adults will appreciate some artwork for the rented flat, or a new throw to cover the second hand sofa. And older parents and relatives will always love gifts that look great on the table when entertaining. I’ve even been known to buy the BF the occasional gift for the home. Well, it might have been for me really but don’t tell him so.
With all of this in mind, I was very happy to be introduced to Bridgman who stock all manner of quality gifts for the home from the likes of Voyage Maison, Villeroy & Boch and Georg Jensen, to name but a few. If you would rather pick up and touch gifts before buying, they have a number of showrooms, or if like me, you do most of your Christmas shopping online you can order a catalogue, or buy direct from the website.
And if you do want to buy me a gift for the home, I wouldn’t say no to any of the items below. Just sayin’.
