The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide
The ultimate Christmas gift guide for 2020 has to be the exact opposite of the very challenging year we've all experienced. Which is why we're recommending a thoughtful mix of wellbeing and enduring gifts with a dash of the unusual.
Our Christmas gift ideas for him and her are all about the home and creating the perfect environment in which to relax, have fun and, essentially, recharge your own batteries.
What to Buy for Christmas
Ask us what to buy for Christmas and our thoughts turn immediately to eating outside. So how about exploring an upgrade to outdoor dining arrangements.
A Refreshing Christmas Gift For 2
A bistro set is the perfect setting for two of you taking those all important seasonal breaks to eat mince pies and drink hot chocolate (other refreshments are available). Bistro sets are not just for small spaces - these light, elegant tables and chairs will allow you to create an area to pause and revive in any size of garden.
Larger Dining Set Gift Ideas For Christmas And Beyond
Thinking ahead to when we can gather with our loved ones, we recommend taking a look at some of the amazing choices available with larger outdoor dining sets. This is one of those investment-type Christmas gift ideas - furniture designed to last, looking good and taking you through the seasons for many years to come.
Heating And Eating Outside During Christmas
Eating outside in the UK during the winter months is made 100 times more enjoyable with heat. The Norwegians say there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing. So, if you do insist on wearing that Christmas jumper, outdoor heating is the must-have gift idea for you. There's a huge range of fire pits and baskets whether it's a stylish or functional you're after. It all adds up to warmth and a cosy relaxing atmosphere - the ideal Christmas gift we think you'll agree.
All this talk about dining, leads us neatly on to cooking outdoors which, not unnaturally, makes us think about Christmas gift ideas for him...
Christmas Gift Ideas For Him
'The Barbecue' - it just has to be on our list of Christmas gift ideas for him in some form or another. A fabulous choice of wood-fired ovens means chef can indulge in every style of cooking over Christmas - and beyond. Outdoor cooking is very much a year-round activity whether it's the traditional British feast or a meal inspired by the still-to-be-taken summer holiday. As a Christmas gift idea for him it represents a much-needed sense of freedom however many people you are able to entertain.
Moving from the rational to a more frivolous Christmas gift idea for him, take a look at a geo baroque metal framed mirror. It's definitely got presence and adds a sense of space to a room let alone allowing everyone to check how great they look.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Her
A hanging egg chair - you've got to admit this is one of the best Christmas gift ideas for her! Think less Arne Jacobsen's Egg Chair and more cocoon - free standing rattan garden egg chair to be precise - with season-proof cushions. That word 'cocoon' - it's so right for Christmas 2020.
The current trend for BoHo is another rich source of Christmas gift ideas for her. Choose from a range of rattan seating such as the handmade cane moon chair or a swivel rocker available in a huge range of fabrics. This light, airy furniture is also perfect for the conservatory whatever size of space you have to play with.
