Whether for Christmas or birthdays, a housewarming or simply to show you care, the perfect gift for someone you care about can often be hard to find. So many bricks and mortar shops and online stores stock the same ranges of gift ideas, which can be perfect when first launched but tiresome when you see the same thing year in, year out.
A well-thought out home accessory gift can prove the perfect present for those who are tricky to buy for, especially when looking to buy for the person who really does have everything. That’s why here at Carnill & Company we’re always on the lookout for unique, chic gifts that are sure to please, and which will suit a variety of different tastes and styles.
On that note, read on for our top five picks for a range of different recipients…
For the whisky fanatic
Men can often be hard to buy for at Christmas – and lovers of whisky will often find themselves presented with a bottle. This year, why not try something different and opt for the Noble Isle “Whisky Connoisseur” Gift Set instead? Combining a stunning full size reed diffuser with a Whisky and Water hand wash, this truly is a whisky gift with a difference.
For those pining for the beach
Bring a piece of the beach to seaside lovers with our tall driftwood vase an outer sleeve composed of driftwood that holds a tall glass cylinder. This is a gift that truly evokes the sea, and can be used either as a vase or as a candle holder.
For the foodie
Rather than buying ingredients or other items of food that might not be used, why not buy the food fanatic in your life something for their kitchen that is not only functional, but beautiful too? This hand turned oak pestle & mortar fits the bill perfectly: a totally unique piece that has been hand made by a Vale of Belvoir artisan from wood that has been chosen for its quality, patina, character and colour.
For the amateur interior designer
Are you buying for someone who’s always decorating and redecorating? Try wrapping a copy of Hand Made Home up for them: it’s a great guide to exactly what gives a home its personality. Each copy is signed, too.
For tea and coffee fanatics
Buying for a hot drink addict? Choose a set of coasters that are designed to last. We love these silver mirrored glass coasters which feature two different designs per pack of four: fantastic unique home accessories that are sure to take pride of place.
