The Perfect Christmas Gift Guide
The nights have drawn in, the madness of Halloween and Bonfire Night is finally over and the shops are already brimming with Christmas products… eek! With the official John Lewis Christmas advert released last week which maybe brought a tiny little tear to my eye it is time to accept that holiday season is fast approaching despite that I’m still morning the end of Summer. I accept it and so I shall focus on one area that I excel particularly well in….shopping!
So with that in mind I have made a promise that this year WILL be the year that I’m actually organised, I have of course made this promise every year to myself and failed miserably but I’m optimistic! As I love all things interiors why not spread the Christmas cheer and compile a list of gifts to give others a helping hand in selecting the perfect present for someone special this year. From past experience subtle hints do not work ladies and men the gift of a hand held hoover is NOT an excellent Christmas present however practical!
Here are a few of my favourite items to go under the Christmas tree this year:
Lime Blossom Candle by Designers Guild £28
Relax with an uplifting fragrance candle with fresh lime and green tea top notes with hints of cardamon and ginger – smells divine, comes in a cute box and has an impressive burning time of 45 hours.
Pink Grid Teapot by Designers Guild £50
I love this pretty in pink teapot made by the Imperial Porcelain Factory producer of hand painted ceramics in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The delicate and intricate grid design with gold edging is stunning and comes with the matching tea cup set, mug and saucer set and sugar bowel. Get the whole collection and invite the Queen round for tea!
Pooch Cushion- Lovingly Made by John Sankey £99.95
Available in 4 different colours white, black, and plaid reverse these cute little home accessories are sweet and require minimal walking – who said a dog is for life and not just for Christmas??
Mulberry Cushions – Fabric Prices Vary
Nothing says I love you like the gift of Mulberry and what better way to cosy down for the winter with the comfort of Mulberry cushions. With hundreds of beautiful fabrics to choose from, come in and we will help you design your perfect cushion combinations that will be sure to get you in the good books as well as on Santa’s Nice List for next year.
Zoffany Mohair Rug – Available in 29 breathtaking Zoffany colours £523
Ok so I may be pushing it slightly here with the generosity of the gift giving but who wouldn’t want a handmade Mohair rug which is spun from the wool of the Angora goat which naturally grows a very long fleece mainly on the chest? Quality you can literally feel between your toes and as an added bonus will give Santa a little extra comfort when he comes down the chimney.
Nickel Lamp With Beautiful Beige Shade – £135
Create the perfect Christmas ambience and atmosphere with the simple yet effective nickel table lamp that include the shade. This oozes elegance and sophistication and comes with a very reasonable price tag, so go ahead and spread the festive cheer with a gift that’s guaranteed to bring a smile from ear to ear.
Black Porcupine Mirror – £591
WARNING: Show stopper alert – it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but in the right environment would have the total WOW factor and a real focal point for any room. The love and attention that gone into producing such a work of art is clear to see – the question is have you been good enough this year to receive this luxurious and equally as fabulous gift?

Designers Guild Apron – Available in 3 Designs £16
