Christmas Gift Guide: For Homebodies and Domestic Goddesses #Christmas #giftguide

What is nicer when it's cold outside, than snuggling up at home surrounded by beautiful things?  If you know someone who would rather be at home than out on the town, or who just likes to have beautiful things around them, our guide to gifts for domestic gods and goddesses is just the thing.  We've got a strong dose of hygge but plenty of glam, too, enjoy!


We're huge fans of all things lovely and snuggly at Pignut, so couldn't resist sharing this gorgeous photo of their stunning Christmas cushions again, but we also love this cosy Somerset Star Blue Navy & White Star Knit Throw. Perfect for a coastal living vibe, this large blanket throw (130 x 170cm) is ideal for sofas and beds, or in the car.  It's Lara's go-to blanket at the moment and goes everywhere!


For curling up at home, the limited edition book cushions from House of Lovely Stuff are perfect.  Each is made from an eclectic collection of fabrics combining different textures, patterns, shapes and colours to make very limited edition collections.  Just pop a good book in the pocket and you have the perfect gift for someone special.


We love the shabby chic style at Melody Maison and this sweet heart-shaped stool is ideal for young children or for decorating around the home.  A larger size is also available for adults.


More than any other time of year, home is truly where our hearts are at Christmas time, and this pretty distressed wood sign with heart cut-outs and flower detail will bring joy to all who see it.  This Home is Where the Heart is Plaque will be the perfect gift for someone who treasures their home and everyone in it.


Perfect for menu, garden or party use, this large freestanding blackboard is sure to have many uses around the home, a great gift for anyone with events coming up in the new year.


These stunning Orla Kiely mugs are from a great range at Mclaggan and exquisitely made in fine bone china.  The perfect addition to any kitchen and a cheering sight for the vital cup of tea or coffee. If these prints aren't their thing, choose the perfect personalised Christmas gift for every member of the family from the huge Mclaggan Smith Mugs collection, printed and decorated in the UK since 1974.


This personalised Solid Copper Photo Print is a beautiful way to display a cherished photo, complete with your own text and personal message.  Print a treasured photo, family snap or recent Instagram pic onto this brushed metal background and it will look fantastic, its waterproof and scratch-resistant too.  You can add personalised text underneath the image and also have the option of adding a message to the bottom of the product, perfect for gifting or simply adding information about the image.


Drumond Park Games' WORDSEARCH! brings a classic favourite pastime a modern twist. Outsmart your opponents by being the first to find each hidden word, the perfect game for all ages and generations, from age 8 up. Just choose one of the selection of double-sided game cards, slot it onto the wheel base then frantically scan the board searching for the word amongst the jumbled letters.  The first to spot it claims the word by placing their coloured see-through markers over it.  Widely available, WORDSEARCH! is a guaranteed hit with all ages this Christmas. Available from Amazon and other leading retailers.


WoodWick Candles are new scented candles that have a unique wick that makes a soft crackling sound as it burns.  The perfect festive accompaniment to a roaring fire and sparkling tree, the candles are available in a variety of fragrances, including Hot Toddy, Campfire Marshmallow and Fig.


The VonShef Copper Cocktail Shaker Set from Domu is the perfect gift for any cocktail lover or aspiring cocktail maker.  The beautifully designed 550ml capacity Parisian cocktail shaker is made from premium stainless steel with a contemporary copper finish, and the complementary copper-coloured accessories include a stainless steel muddler, twisted double-ended bar spoon/fork, Hawthorne strainer and double-ended shot measuring jigger, along with a cocktail recipe guide to get them started.  All supplied in a gorgeous gift box, the perfect gift.


This Ornate Copper Mirrored Plate is a welcome addition to any colour scheme. Its bright beautiful copper colour and mirrored plate is perfect for displaying candles, ornaments and trinkets, adding a touch of glitz and glamour to any room.


For a touch of cute whimsy the delightful designs from Helen Russell Creations are perfect. We love the Balancing Penguins Jug and 15cm Penguin side plate are made from fine bone china and add a fun touch to your festive table. The South Pole penguins have come to visit the Pennines and they are sporting their very best winter wear! Dishwasher and microwave safe, they are hand decorated in the UK and each come in a gift box with a little story postcard that tells you all about the character inside, making them lovely gifts.



And finally, add that last finishing touch with these little stocking fillers from Baylis & Harding.  The Midnight Fig & Pomegranate Luxury hand Wash smells delicious and the packaging is a wonderfully festive touch to add to your bathroom, while the pretty gold topped candle looks too beautiful to use but smells divine too - dilemmas dilemmas!  Available from leading supermarkets and department stores.
