Christmas Gifts For Her and Him

Christmas Gifts For Her and Him

The countdown to Christmas can be both an exciting and at the same time a stressful time. Expectations to make this festive season a perfect one for family and friends can at times seem overwhelming.

One of the main pressures is often how to choose the ideal gifts for those special people in your life. The saying goes that it is 'the thought that counts' when someone receives a present that isn't really what they would have chosen for themselves. How much better it is when the person receiving the gift really does appreciate the thought that has gone into it by the giver.

We are here to, hopefully, offer some assistance in helping you choose from a range of products which will be gratefully received, appreciated and used by the person you are buying for.

Sustainability is an important consideration when choosing any purchase and gifting is no exception. We have gifts for the Eco-Conscious Person or people in your life throughout our various categories and collections. 

We love to support companies who combine great design with ethical credentials. The Danish brand, The Organic Company, is a perfect example. They produce quality kitchen textiles from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton.

Joy Vasiljev who created the business has an ethos centred around design, quality and respect for nature and the environment which is reflected in their products.

The Giant Kitchen Towel/Apron, Oven Gloves and Towels are not only an ideal gift choice for the eco-conscious but also those who like a practical gift. cooking.  

We all enjoy pampering ourselves from time to time and for those who have busy lives this down time often gets overlooked.

Consider buying a Christmas gift that encourages that overstretched person in your life to slow down and take some time out.

The Scandi Svarog hand poured soy candles have the most amazing and appealing scents. Once lit these candles can't help but encourage that stressed person you choose to gift it to to sit back, relax and unwind.  

Check out the unique 'Fireside' scent which is both warming and comforting. It has a blend of oils of frankincense combined with amber, moss, tonka and cedar. In addition to our Svarog Candle Christmas collection it is a perfect gift or stocking filler for this time of year.   


The appealing handmade concrete incense holders in a choice of black, grey or terrazzo are ideal for burning a favourite scented joss stick and creating a calm and peaceful ambience. Perfect for that special someone who enjoys yoga or meditation as a de-stressor. 


We all have friends and family who love to receive a gift that is handmade and has a back story. We have many products which will be genuinely appreciated by lovers of homeware created by skilled artisans and makers.

One of our favourite and most popular makers is the Manchester based Norwegian ceramicist, Tone Von Krogh.

The inspiration for her irresistible pieces is the Norwegian winter landscape.  She says 'When the snow covers trees, rocks, paths and architecture; any sharp edges become soft and everyday shapes may become unrecognisable'.

This feeling is reflected in the mugs, cups and vases we stock of hers in muted shades which 'reflect the tones of snow, ice and winter skies.'

For the Minimalist Design Conscious amongst family and friends our website has them covered in all our categories including furniture, lighting and ceramics.

The white or black hairpin leg Scandi inspired plywood furniture sits perfectly in a contemporary, understated setting. The simple but stylish shelves with an option of black or white brackets are an ideal backdrop for showcasing one or two minimalist pieces of artwork or ceramics.

For stocking fillers for the minimalist take a look at our Fairtrade Monochrome Ceramic Wave Collection. 

Created by Danish Design Company, Lubech Living, the timeless trays and pots have a multitude of uses in all areas of the home including the bathroom, kitchen and home office.

Added appealing features are that they are sustainably made using solar energy and the water used in production is recycled.

We all have people in our lives who enjoy being out in nature and to bring the outside into their homes. They love to fill their rooms with the fresh scent of flowers picked from their gardens or attractive dried stems and grasses.

We have a good choice of decorative vases both large and small and ceramic and glass to hold fresh and dried flowers and foliage to create that finishing touch to an interior.

Our range of Scandi Lindform bud vases are not only beautiful but are created with sustainability, quality and craftsmanship as major elements. Marita Lindholm who started the company continues to design each piece. She is influenced in her design by the changing seasons reflected in the sky, wind and woods.

Please take a look through our Christmas gift collection and if you like what you see but are still undecided on which gifts to buy you can always consider the option of purchasing a room356 gift voucher which I am sure will be received with thanks.
