Looking for inspiration for home gifts this Christmas? We understand that choosing a present for an interiors obsessive (especially those who seem to have everything) can be a challenge, which is why we've stepped in to share our pick of the best gifts for home lovers.
Whether their style is minimalist, maximalist or somewhere in between, you're sure to find something unique to gift this Christmas.
1. Gorgeous Moroccan wool pots (we want them all)
With happiness inducing properties, these Moroccan Wool Pots (opens in new tab) from Bohemia Design would make the perfect addition to a home with a white colour scheme – or as a gift for an interiors obsessive with eclectic taste.
Perfect for storing knick knacks, or for housing small (but special) house plants, we're sure they would make a welcome addition to any home. While we're on the subject... lots more house plant advice in our gorgeous gallery, too.
2. Stylish glasses for gin enthusiasts
With gin growing in popularity (and rightly so) we love the idea of gifting a pair of gorgeous glasses to fellow gin enthusiasts. Find this gin goblet set (opens in new tab) (of two) at Oliver Bonas.
Looking for the perfect accompaniment? Pair with Edinburgh Gin's Rhubarb and Ginger Liqueur (opens in new tab) or Firebox Flamingo Tears Pink Grapefruit Gin (opens in new tab) and hey presto, gift perfection.
3. Gift the cactus trend
According to the headlines, cacti are the new pineapples, meaning they're guaranteed to make a great gift for interiors obsessives this Christmas.
We love these Serax Cactus Vases (opens in new tab) from John Lewis & Partners, which look just as adorable paired with stemmed leaves as they do on their own. Choose from a variety of shapes and sizes – each at different price points – according to your preference.
4. Choose a table lamp with Mid-century influence
Mid-century interiors are everyone's (not so new) obsession. And it's easy to see why. They're stylish, yet quirky, and promise to fill a space with plenty of personality. Get this one right and your interiors obsessive amigo will love you forever.
When we spotted this Curve Iron Table Lamp Desk Light (opens in new tab) in a seriously striking ochre yellow we just had to share it with you. Pick it up at Hurn & Hurn. Now. Go.
5. A low-maintenance home office beautifier
An ideal gift for a colleague (secret santa inspo, right there) or a friend who works from home, terrariums are effective in sprucing up and injecting life into a tired looking desk space.
Teamed with a stylish succulent – which you can add if you're feeling extra generous – it doesn't get much prettier than this Geometric Terrarium (opens in new tab) from Not on the High Street.
6. Share a memory in a delicate hanging glass frame
A simple, but sentimental gift that's perfect for a good friend, we love the idea of filling these Delicate Hanging Glass Frames (opens in new tab) from Cox & Cox with memories; be that a photograph, postcard, pressed flower, ticket or wedding invitation.
7. A super cosy throw blanket
This super cosy throw looks just like that rug that everyone (including pretty much every member of the Real Homes team) has in their home. We absolutely love it and can confirm that we're already picturing nights in curled up with a glass of wine and a film...
So, if you're nervous about gifting homes gifts to an interiors lover, this Nela Throw Blanket (opens in new tab) from Anthropologie is probably one of your safest bets. They're pretty much guaranteed to love it. And if they don't, send it our way.
8. Give a homeware gift with a story
Like the idea of a skillfully handcrafted gift that has the added benefit of supporting a great cause?
This I Can I Am Tablecloth (opens in new tab) from Arthouse Unlimited supports the work of Arthouse Unlimited, a collective of artists living with complex epilepsy and learning difficulties whose passion for producing artworks is channelled into the production of designer items.
9. Give an oh-so-Instagrammable gift
Have a friend that loves Instagramming their home? This Gold Letter Board (opens in new tab) from Oliver Bonas could be the gift for them.
Perfect for styling with cute catchphrases, shopping lists or messages for your other half, they're a stylish addition to any contemporary home.
10. A subscription to Real Homes or Period Living mags
We know we would say this but Real Homes magazine is a fab read – as well as being a great reference for anyone looking to transform their home
A subscription (opens in new tab) means your giftee will have all the latest on updating their home, whether owned or rented, and whether they're on a budget or splashing out on a forever family home. It covers the latest decorating trends, too.
Do they love period or vintage decor? Why not double up with a subscription (opens in new tab) to Period Living mag too? You know it makes sense.
11. A Moroccan-inspired mirror perfect for contemporary homes
With a stylish, copper-toned finish, we love the Moroccan influence behind this gorgeous Kasabah Mirror (opens in new tab) from Cox & Cox. Its lightweight design and unique shape make an understated impact that's perfect for a bedroom, living room or hallway.
12. Kitchen utensils they wouldn't buy for themselves
The best Christmas presents are those that the recipient would love, but probably wouldn't buy for themselves. Enter the gorgeous Eres range from Anthropologie.
Pick from a Pie Dish (opens in new tab), Spoon Rest (opens in new tab), Salt and Pepper Shakers (opens in new tab)or Butter Dish (opens in new tab), each adorned with intricately designed, floral patterns, and spruce up the kitchen of the home lover in your life.
13. A kettle unlike any other
When it comes to choosing gifts for the home owner who has everything, thinking outside of the box is key.
We love this Smeg Dolce & Gabbana Kettle (opens in new tab), with its vibrant, Italian inspired design. The unique and luxurious feel of this designer item makes it a special gift for Christmas.
Don't fancy the kettle, why not try the Smeg Dolce & Gabbana Toaster (opens in new tab) instead?
14. An industrial-inspired, on trend terrazzo planter
For friends or family members whose taste is more industrial-inspired, this set of on trend terrazzo Hakuun Planters (opens in new tab) from Made makes a stylish gift.
The perfect platform for plants that need to live indoors, planters allow you to make more of a feature from your green friends, while ensuring the home doesn't feel cluttered. Pssst! Tell your friends they can look for house plant display ideas in our feature, too.
15. A tropical kitchen addition
If you know a home lover who enjoys cooking too, this gorgeous Parrot Cotton Apron (opens in new tab), designed my Sara Miller and available at Amara, makes the perfect gift.
Bringing a taste of the tropics into your kitchen, its vibrant parrot design is sure to brighten up even the gloomiest of winter evenings.
16. A striking print with a special anniversary
Was there ever a better year to gift a Keith Haring print than the year that he would've seen his 60th birthday?
Best known for his use of art to explore political and societal themes – namely homosexuality and AIDS – Haring's colourful prints make a stylish gift for anyone with an interest in art. Pick up Untitled by Keith Haring (opens in new tab) at Made.
17. Gorgeous glasses to help bring in the New Year
With 2020 just around the corner, a set of gorgeous Champagne glasses makes a lovely Christmas gift perfect for bringing in the New Year.
We love the delicate deign of this Waterfall Flute (opens in new tab) from Anthropologie. Team with a bottle of bubbly and you've got Christmas sorted.
