Struggling to find the perfect Christmas present for your neighbors? Can’t seem to find a gift to suit your friend? Then why not get them a gift for their home?

Choosing the perfect Christmas gift can be tricky, especially if you are buying for someone with particular tastes. Although buying a gift for the home is somewhat unusual, the right piece of home decor can make the perfect present.

For a fantastic guide to buying Christmas gifts for the home, have a read of this.

Ask them what they want

If you don’t know what to get for a particular friend or couple, why not ask them if there is something for their home that they would like. Perhaps they have been yearning for a new coffee machine or a canvas print for the study - whatever it is, will make an ideal present.

If they say they have everything they need, have a little look around and suggest something. For instance, if you notice that the wall above their fireplace is empty, perhaps you could suggest buying them a painting to fill the space. Don’t worry about offending them, they can always say no.

If they can’t think of something that they need, ask them what their favourite home brand is. If they can suggest a brand or decor style that they like, you could visit the store or website to get some gift ideas. Remember, just because they say they don’t need anything, it doesn’t mean they won’t love your gift.

Take inspiration from their home

If you are planning on getting a friend or relative a home-related Christmas present, take inspiration from their own home. If you know  that their home is decorated in a certain style, such as shabby chic. You could consider buying them an up-cycled piece of furniture or something else that matches their style.

You could also think about the things that their home may be lacking. Obviously, you don’t want to offend them, but if you notice that your friend is always losing her keys, you could buy her a unique key holder for her home.

Browse the internet

Sometimes when you’re looking for something specific you will struggle to find it.  So, instead of looking for a particular gift, just browse online for ideas. By simply clicking from website to website, you may be surprised at the quirky gifts you come across.

Choose customised gifts

You can’t go wrong with personalised gifts. If you can’t decide what gift to buy, why not consider a personalised present instead. Personalised gifts are a great way of showing a friend or loved one that you put time and effort into choosing present just for them.

Customised his and hers towels could make the perfect Christmas gift. Perhaps a customised wall canvas with your friend’s favourite quote or favourite family picture would make an excellent present. With so many customised gifts to choose from, it can be hard to find the perfect one. Just remember, it is important to choose a gift that you know your friend or relative would appreciate.

Give them a voucher

If you struggle to come up with a viable idea for a present, you could always buy a gift voucher for their favourite home store. Although a voucher is a little impersonal, at least you know that they will be able to buy a gift that they like.
