I love Christmas, the family time, the decorations, the snuggling up with the kids and watching a Christmas Film. I also love the gift buying, I love buying pressies for others and I enjoy browsing to get the right thing.
I know some prefer to have a list from the person to work from or a gift guide for inspiration. So, I thought I would put together some of the ideas I have spotted to give inspiration for your Christmas Shopping – Starting with gifts for those who love all things house and home!
Cotton and Cable String Lights
A year ago we reviewed some ‘Cable and Cotton‘ Lights and we love them. They are simply a string of lights, but what makes them unique is that you can have in any colour combo and any length you want. It’s all about your choice. The balls are beautifully made from cotton and they look fantastic. Ours have been resident in the dining area bringing colour to our meals, but we have moved them now to be part of our Christmas Decorations!
Whether it is Fan Art or Original Art, it is the perfect gift as you can match it to the receivers personality. I personally love iindependentartists, where as my Brother is a fan of the likes of ‘Banksy’. Some of my Favourite independents are Kev Brett from Piddley Pix, Dave Gaskin aka @bikerscout on twitter, Chris Imber of Reckless Hero, Drew Pocza and Eric Merced – Be inspired and buy art!
I love funky things that will make my kitchen look funky – I know some people think I am odd asking for kitchen things for Christmas, but I don’t normally get to buy the funky things, only the practical. This little elephant from Red Candy is on my list, so lovely looking and practical too!
Something for the Children’s Room
We recently reviewed the ReadyRoom Wall stickers from World’s Apart and they are brilliant. There are lots of wall stickers out there that make any childs room brighter. The extra special bit about ReadyRoom is that the stickers can also have a clock, a night light, a doorbell or more in them! Take a look, with a variety of characters to choose from too, perfect for the little ones!
We were not sent any of these items for the gift guide, just wanted to share some of the funky things we will be buying this year!
