The Christmas period is the busiest month on the high street shopping calendar and only means one thing: crowds. Why battle through rain-drenched frantic Christmas shoppers when you can browse to your heart’s content from the comfort of your own home and enjoy FREE delivery* until Boxing Day at mydeco.com?
There really is no need to trail from shop to shop trying to find the perfect Christmas present. Avoid the queues with a click of your finger by looking through our Christmas gift guide and discover gorgeous, handpicked products from our many designer-makers. And if you need a bit of inspiration for those trickier presents (dads, brothers, boyfriends – men!), our Christmas gift guides for him, for her and for stocking fillers are packed with exciting, unusual and enviable products that are sure to impress.
We’ve made buying gifts for the men in your life nice and simple as well as stylish (no socks). Our curated Gifts for Him is an eclectic selection of presents that any man would love. This fantastic wood table lamp by Muuto, for example, is made of raw pinewood that gives it an industrial feel. Wouldn’t it look great in his study or a snug den? Alternatively, why not inject some fun into your gifts with these gold moustache glasses. They’re sold individually so you can choose the tash he’ll like the best or treat him to the set of five for when his drinking buddies come over.
If you bought her jewellery last year (and the year before) then our Gifts for Her collection is just what you need! Gifts for the home can be wonderfully feminine and decorative and they don’t have to be twee. Take this beautiful handmade porcelain jug designed by Annette Bugansky. It’s knit-like texture proves that crockery doesn’t have to boring, but can act as an effective decorative item. Home accessories can make a great personal gift. This flight of fancy lampshade is exquisite in colour and pattern; perfect for the living room or for her individual bedside table.
Surprise and delight with your stockings this year with bold and brave gifts! For the big kids in the family this bar-effect bottle opener will look at home on any kitchen wall and its retro feel will add a bit of personality to an everyday accessory. Great for when the drinks are flowing this Christmas! Alternatively, if you’re looking for a more feminine gift that defies the norm then look no further than this inventive owl candle holder. Whether it’s used as a quirky centrepiece or for windowsill decoration, this candle holder certainly makes for an original gift.
Next week I’ll bring you more Christmas inspiration with some fantastic gift ideas for kids and people who are tricky to buy for.
