a small gesture...

May your home always be too small to fit all of your friends! An old saying, but a great sentiment.

Bear small proportions in mind if you are buying a present for a first time buyer. The art deco drinks trolley was funky, but they probably have no space to park it. That said, drink related gifts usually go down well... literally in some cases.

For glorious glassware, we recommend online retailer Spiero. Owner, Kirstie Millar has drawn on her German roots to source products which are both handmade and unique.

These stunning green wine glasses are part of a painstaking 17 step process, marked with a cutesy butterfly stamp as a sign of authentication. Of course you could take a set of tumblers from the local supermarket, but we like to think you have a little more class.

Treasure the Memories

When purchasing a gift for a friend, the key to success is to think about their likes and dislikes. For example, does their home tend to favour clean surfaces and minimal adornment? If so, fancy photo framesand tea light holders are not the way to go! However, for the memory keeper…

Check out this distressed multi frame from Style The Home favourite Oli & Grace. It presents the perfect canvas to create a collage of memories, filled with family and friends.

Alternatively if your friends channel a boho vibe from time to time, why not gift them with these beautiful coloured lanterns. Ideal to light external areas on warmer summer nights.

Oli & Grace are a company with a clear mission to provide their clients with unique items which have been crafted in a sustainable manner. Whilst quality is key, their products are also consciously well priced, making beautiful homes accessible to everyone.

Buying a home fragrance is a fairly safe bet, if you have the nose for it. Think about the perfume choices of the person you are buying for. Do they prefer scents with woody cedars and moss? Or do they lean towards fresher aquatic tones?

At Style The Home we have the intel on all the best places to purchase gifts for the home, including Avril Staple Interiors. The company offer a range of textiles and tableware for the home and they also retail these lovely diffusers by the Country Candle Collection.

This seagrass diffuser is a treat for the senses. With scents of violet, rose and melon the item is also presented in a striking blue and white box and pretty bottle. Final tip! Always choose room diffusers over candles, they are more versatile.
