Finding Christmas gifts for the interior design lover in your life can be a bit of a task, especially if they seem to have everything. Don’t settle for last-minute gifts - it’s time to get organised and give something special this year that they’ll really treasure. Whether you’re looking for something for your partner or for a friend that’s just moved into a new place, we’re here to help crown you as the number one gift giver this season. 

We couldn’t do a 2022 Christmas gift guide without consulting our very own in-house interiors expert Kelly Collins. Armed with tonnes of Christmassy festive inspo and fuelled by a Mariah Carey soundtrack, here’s her ultimate round-up of gifts for the interior design aficionado in your life.

“For the friend, family or partner that loves to host, this Soho home wine cooler makes a really lovely luxury gift this Christmas. Crafted from Turkish-sourced Levanto marble, it’s guaranteed to be a talking point around the dining table. I love the colour of this piece a lot”.

“I’ve been a big fan of Hannah Harriet for a while - her handmade concrete items are so unique and make the ideal gift this Christmas for someone that has it all. I love that they’re so different and bespoke, making for something your loved one wouldn’t have seen anything like before. These candle holders are really simple and elegant - perfect for elevating anyone’s Christmas party table”.

“You really can’t go wrong with a stylish interiors coffee table book, even if it’s only used as an accessories prop. This one by the absolutely fabulous (and my personal favourite) Kelly Wearstler has got that bold colour trend sorted with a beautiful, vibrant cover”.

Glass Vases / H&M Home

“A lot of people are given flowers over Christmas and as beautiful as they are, most people never have enough vases and they end up staying in a pint glass (or is that just me?!). Instead of giving flowers this year, I’ll be gifting these stylish numbers that’ll last much longer”.

Bruce / Patch Plants

“Who doesn’t like getting a new plant! Plants help bring a space to life and last much longer than flowers. With Patch plants you can send them straight to your loved ones’ door - a perfect gift for someone that lives further away. This adorably named ‘Bruce’ is a pot-grown blue spruce that stands at a cute 40-50cm - the perfect seasonal plant for a festive decorated shelf or mantlepiece”.

Storage Ottomans / Swyft

“Perfect for a pre-Christmas gift or for your friend that’s just got their first place are Swyft’s storage ottomans. These are really handy as extra seating for additional guests over the festive season. I’ve got one myself and this year I’ll be using it to store everything for nights in with friends - board games, cocktail shakers and loads of other fun stuff. These ottomans come in 6 different colours and 3 different fabrics”.

“It’s definitely getting colder outside and I don’t blame all of us for favouring staying in under a blanket with a favourite Netflix show, instead of heading out. I’m a big fan of this throw designed by Matilda Goad & Co, stocked at Anthropologie”. 

Knit blanket £68

Ooh La La Cushion / Yvonne Ellen

“This one’s the perfect gift for interior-loving friends whose homes have bags of personality. These cushions by Yvonne Ellen make a bold statement accessory for sofas or beds thanks to the red and peach colouring of the letters. Cushions are a fun gift to give and are overlooked quite often, so give something a little different this year”.

“Of course I had to include Christmas decorations in our round-up! These tree decorations from our friends over at After Noah are a mix between slightly kitsch and totally on-trend. I personally love them and will be treating myself to a few for my own tree this year. I’m seeing these paper decorations everywhere at the moment and I think they’re ideal for that super Scandi vibe”.
