Top Christmas gifts for interiors lovers
The season of giving is upon us! If you’re looking for the ideal present this Christmas for the design lovers in your life and you’re lacking inspiration, you have come to the right place. From comfortable cushions that add a splash of colour to any home to a thoughtful place someone can relax on at the end of the day, we have curated a gift guide perfect for interior lovers.
Gifting somebody a cosy throw will never lose its appeal. A warming accessory throughout the winter months, and a beautiful home accessory for the rest of the year, our throws would never look out of place draped over a sofa or bed. Our 100% Merino lambswool throws do not just make beautiful gifts that will last a long time, they’re practical too and are perfect for when you’re sneaking in a nap on your sofa in the afternoon.
Available exclusively from our sofa.com showrooms, our throws come in 3 versatile Choose from (top to bottom) Cornsilk (Taupe), Rain (grey), Boysenberry (Lilac)
Put down the obligatory socks or scarf this year, and opt for something with a little character or a pop of colour to leave under the Christmas tree.
Okay, so once a cushion is wrapped up it may be quite an easy guess for the one who’s peaking under the tree before the big day, but the surprise is all in the style! Cushions prove a great addition to any home, they add texture, warmth and colour whether layered across a bed or stacked on the sofa. Opt for their favourite colour or choose one that complements their current interiors for a memorable gift that will always remind them of you.
Spark someone’s imagination with colourful, exciting accessories
Interiors lovers often pay attention to the little details – gifting cushions allow them to add further detail or a touch of texture where ever they like in their home
Ahh… give the gift of comfort this year! Who isn’t going to be appreciative of that? Make sure your recipient has the space to place a new armchair and they’ll forever be thinking of you when they sink into a beautifully handcrafted armchair at the end of a long day! If you’re unsure whether this will be well received, next time you drop round for a cuppa and there’s a little lack of seating, drop a few hints and see if they’re on the lookout for something to fill a gap in their home. You may have to get creative with wrapping this gift though!
What’s more appealing than gifting something that will bring someone happiness for years to come? That beats a gift that will end up in the cupboard on December 26th!

Another great example of ensuring you win ‘gift giver of the year’ this year! There’s little in life that gives you the same feeling of satisfaction than being able to put your feet up at the end of the day and settle in with a cup of tea or a tipple of your choice. Give the gift of relaxation and help your recipient create their own peaceful, cosy spot in their home with a stool or footstool to rest on. Drop some hints on style preference and colour and surprise them with a gift that’s not only stylish but very practical too!
Let there be light, all year round, not just the twinkling lights of Christmas! If you’re on the lookout for something to gift a lover of light or decorative interiors, then drop the gift card idea this year round, and leave a distinctive and striking accessory wrapped up under the Christmas tree for them. Creative lighting experts Pooky are all about design-led lighting, without the expensive price tag. The perfect first pit stop for you in the search for something a little different for your design-loving friend or companion.
Eyecatching and smart, the Crescent Table Lamp from Pooky really makes a statement
Art can make a great gift, especially for those who have a keen eye for style or design. However, it can be quite subjective, so give this one some thought! Have you ever seen a photograph or piece of art and thought ‘oh, so and so would love this’ or ‘this would look great in so and so’s home’? If so, then you’re already on the right track. It can seem a little daunting to buy someone something so personal but done correctly, it can be a lovely gesture.
Firstly, start small. Gifting a smaller piece of art is going to be received better than something that feels imposing in a home that isn’t yours. This way your recipient can find somewhere thoughtful and more personal to them to display your gift if you leave them with more options.
Make sure your gift isn’t destined to be hidden in the downstairs cloakroom by shopping for their taste and not yours. It sounds simple, doesn’t it? But easily forgotten! Ask yourself, does the recipient have particular interests or a colour theme in their home? If so, these are always good places to start.
Lastly, don’t get too overwhelmed with your decision, trust your instinct.
Whether inspirational prints or a classic piece of art – gifting art can have timeless appeal. (Image credit).
So, if you’re ready to purchase a gift that’ll delight a home designer, no matter how big or small, here is a quick recap of a few things to consider:
- Consider the recipient – shop for them, not yourself
- Consider the space – will it fit in their home?
- Are you buying something upholstered? If so, will it work in a home if they have children and pets?
- Last but not least, will it fit under the Christmas tree?!
