Everyone knows how hard it can be to buy gifts for interior lovers and those who are obsessed with home décor. (Just ask my husband). We know what we want. And chances are, what you think we would love, we probably won’t…sorry 🙈 We have already pre-decorated our homes 10 years in advance in our heads. So, either give us the cash to go buy what we want or listen to our heavily dropped hints. To help those of you who sweat at the sign of Christmas because you have no idea what to get that special friend or loved one, I have put together my top gift ideas for lovers of all things home décor.
SOMETHING THAT SMELLS NICE. A candle is always a good idea. (A good quality one anyway) And a refillable candle is an even better idea! Inoko is a Sydney based company offering a stunning, on trend range of refillable candles and diffusers to suit any personality, room or occasion. The timber, concrete and marble vessels are simply gorgeous. With beautiful scents to match. Priced from $30. Website HERE.
SOMETHING BOHO. The biggest trend of the year! Every interior lover has or wants something Boho in their home. Even if it’s a non-decor item (lets be honest, they will decorate with it still) like the Avery bag ($99) from popular NSW based small business Sea Tribe. They have an amazing variety of Bohemian styled home decor items to choose from including cushions, throw rugs and ottomans. Website HERE.
SOMETHING FOR THE GREEN THUMB. Something for the crazy plant lady (or man). The Tuscan Path fiberglass Abbey Pots are a perfect piece for any interior of exterior and are a favourite amongst many home decor lovers! They also have a large range of other on trend planters, available it most Bunnings Warehouse stores. Prices start at $29. Website HERE.
SOMETHING FOR THE NOT SO GREEN THUMB… If you are buying for someone who isn’t so good at keeping plants alive, consider an artificial plant. These days, they are more realistic than ever and well priced as well. A good investment if you are a plant killer! This lemon beauty vine from Freedom Furniture is just $17.95. A great gift to give for that not so green thumb who can’t handle the real deal. Website HERE.
SOMETHING PRETTY TO DRINK FROM. Someone who is home decor obsessed is quite likely to love something pretty to sip their tea or coffee out of too. Because let’s be honest, everything is decor obsessed own must look good in a styled photo! The Pavia textured circles mug from Zanui (currently on sale for $4.77ea) will be better received than a mug that says ‘Keep calm, Christmas is coming’ any day! Website HERE.
SOMETHING TO READ. Home decorators and interior lovers love to gain inspiration by looking at other peoples gorgeous homes and unique styles. Scrolling Pinterest and Instagram is fun, but having an actual hard copy magazine is a lovely gift to receive. A Home Beautiful Magazine subscription is the gift that keeps on giving. A monthly subscription delivered to their door for a whole year for just $79. Subscribe HERE.
SOMETHING LEATHER/FAUX LEATHER. When isn’t leather in trend? It fits in with a Boho interior. A Scandi interior. An Eclective interior. Leather (or a good faux leatter) is always in style. This Ezibuy Boyd Pouf is a steal at just $79.99. Both a decorative and functional piece, it would make a great addition to any living room or bedroom. Website HERE.
SOMETHING TO HANG ON THE WALL. Photographic prints are very popular at the moment. Florals and botanical prints are especially sought after, especially in large sizes. This Protea prints from Love Your Space are simply gorgeous and would make a great statement piece to any space. Sure to be greatly appreciated by any home decor lover. Prices start from $12. Website HERE.
SOMETHING BLUSH PINK. Yep, blush pink is still hugely in trend and still filling our instagram feeds. What’s great about this muted shade of pink, is that it goes with so many colours and styles of interior. Scandi, boho or any other current trend, blush pink fits right in. One of my fave blush pieces is the Adairs Home Republic Pom Pom throw blanket, which retails for $119.95. Website HERE.
SOMETHING TO PUT FLOWERS IN. A nice vase is a great gift idea for a home decor lover, as it is almost guaranteed that they will have fresh blooms somewhere in their home. The Habitat 101 Kano Glass Vase With Timber Base is a great choice as its simple, get eye catching design suits most interior styles. Website HERE.
SOMETHING FOR THE KITCHEN. Kitchens are the heart of the home, and so for a home decorator, it of course must be as styled as the rest of the home. Yet functional as well. The Salt & Pepper Home bread bin fulfills both these needs. Simple, sleek, stylish design as well as an attractive way to store and cut bread. Website HERE.
SOMETHING FOR THE BATHROOM. Country Road Bade bathroom items might not seem like a very exciting gift to give, but trust me, a matching set of gorgeous timber items for the bathroom will have any decor lover drooling. The straight lines and simple combination of whote and timber is perfect for most bathrooms. Prices start from $24.95. Website HERE.
SOMETHING SCANDI. Will this trend ever fizzle out? I dont think so. There’s so many variations of it that I think it’s here to stay. Any Scandi lover will adore the Morphy Richards Scandi Kettle and toaster which are available at Harvey Norman and other electrical retailers. The stone and pink are both gorgeous and will make any kitchen shine. Priced from $149. Website HERE.
SPLURGE. If you really want to give a gift to impress, how about a new set of dining chairs. These Replica Wishbone chairs from Pillow Talk are not only a gorgeous design, they all fit into many styles of interior and are very popular amongst home decorators. Currently on sale for $179 each (usually $259 each). Website HERE.
And if all else fails, but them the largest jar of Nutella you can get your hands on. Because who wouldn’t love that?!?!
