Christmas 2023: gift ideas for the home

Products marked with a * were sent to me as PR samples.

When it comes to gifting as an adult, I always find that home-related gifts are really well received. Having not long moved out myself, I've really enjoyed putting my own touch on our lovely little house; we've done loads of decorating and really accessorised. But it can get expensive, which is why gifts for the home are such a good idea at Christmas! Here are some of my favourite picks this year...

Our Place*

I was over the moon to receive a set of pans from Our Place - they're sage green, meaning they match our kitchen so well. Not only that, but they are the best quality pans I've ever used: super sturdy, with little notches to hold the accompanying wooden spoons. The set contains the Always Pan 2.0 (full size), the Always Pan 2.0 (mini size), Perfect Pot (full size) and Perfect Pot 2.0 (mini size) - you can get the set for £350, which is a 30% saving compared to buying all four individually. They are honestly such a luxurious touch and I'm so in love with mine; they'd make the ideal Christmas gift for new homeowners! The pans are packaged beautifully, so they'll be easy to wrap up, too... Currently up to 45% off for Black Friday.

We Made Something Nice*

I love love love prints, and this one is no exception - it's sage green, to match our pans and our kitchen, and it's a retro pizza-related design. Literally everything I love, in one gorgeous print. It looks so lovely in its little oak frame, too! This particular print starts at £14.99 and there are also plenty of other prints themed around food, drink, star signs, destinations and more. Prints are a great Christmas gift idea because you can really match them to somebody's personality or decor, and this one is particularly amazing quality.

Bonnie Bombs & Soap Bars*

I love candles and I got my hands on a gorgeous one from Bonnie Bombs & Soap Bars, a lovely small business based in Scotland. It's one of their 'amber candles' in the scent Scottish Woodland Whispers - and oh my, it smells amazing. It really smells like you're in a forest so if that's your thing, definitely have a look. It's inspired by the NC500 route so if you know anyone who's done that, it would be the perfect gift! I also got some wax melts from Bonnie Bombs & Soap Bars, called 'mini melters' - mine are the Highland Rose scent, complete with dried rose petals. They just look so special and luxurious. Finally, I got super cute wax melt clams, which is a sheet of hearts that you snap off and use as you need them, in the scent Scottish Coast; it's a super fresh and outdoorsy smell, and I love it. Everything is beautifully packaged, eco-friendly, and really well priced. Highly recommend checking them out when shopping for homeowners this Christmas! Free delivery on orders over £50.

Jadey's Wax Melts

I recently found myself on wax melt TikTok, and I absolutely love it. I decided to order from Jadey's Wax Melts on there (through TikTok shop) as she does £1 mystery eggs - she opens up each egg and it has a wax melt shape inside, then she'll pick a random scent in that shape for you. There's a huge range of scents inspired by perfumes, Lush, cleaning products and more, and loads of different shapes too. If you know someone who's obsessed with having nice scents in their home, then getting them a bundle of wax melts is a great idea - and of course you can just order and choose your own scents/shapes, to really tailor it to somebody's favourites. Highly recommend!

Southern Roots UK*

If you know me, you'll know I adore country music - and when I got my hands on this lovely 'Alexa, Play Luke Combs' print I was thrilled. The teal will go so well in our gorgeous spare room, and the design is really fun. It's nice quality and will fit perfectly in an A4 frame. There's plenty of other country-themed homeware, clothes, jewellery and more on the Southern Roots UK etsy shop!

Paper Starlights*

At first glance this looks like a Christmas decoration, but it can be used for any occasion or just left up all year to add a beautiful glow to your home. Easy to put up, this 3D paper star looks gorgeous and you can buy an LED light to pop inside and light it up - otherwise, put it over a bulb/torch/battery-operated candle and so on. They're perfectly safe and an absolutely love addition to your home. Keep an eye on my Instagram to see it styled! PS, get 10% off your first order when you sign up to the newsletter.

Panda London

Bedding is an absolute winner in terms of Christmas gifts, and Panda do *the* softest bedding out there - choose from 100% bamboo or the bamboo & French linen blend, which is a bit more textured and my personal favourite. It's boujie, good for the planet, and feels absolutely lush. All packaged up in its own matching storage bag, it makes for the perfect Christmas present. Black Friday deals now on.

Click Style*

Click Style have some gorgeous homeware, really stylish and great quality. They have a stunning range of silver stag themed items, and I got my hands on this gorgeous candle holder - it's heavy and beautiful and I just know it's going to look amazing with a big chunky candle on it. Stags are pretty festive but also look nice all year round, especially if your style is 'classy countryside'. The whole website is full of absolutely beautiful homeware, and I'd highly recommend having a look for yourself... Get free delivery on orders over £50.

Arrow Gift Co*

If fun and quirky is your vibe (or, you know, that of whoever you're buying for...) then Arrow Gift Co are a great place to look. I got my hands on two of their coasters - one if perfect for that woman in your life who just loves her dog, and the other is great for someone you know who plays the drums. Random, but they have options to suit so many people with so many hobbies! The coasters are just a fiver each, which is brilliant - they're a perfect Secret Santa option, in my opinion, and you'll find plenty of other gifts on the site such as mugs, acrylic blocks and more.
