Floella Christmas loves
With Christmas fast approaching, we have searched through some of our favourite brands and collated some special interior gift ideas into the 2021 Floella Christmas Gift Guide! We have something for everyone, to suit all budgets, and to take the stress out of this year's seasonal shopping spree.
1. Sourced by Holly
Sourced by Holly offers a lovely mix of stunning home accessories including cushions, throws, artwork, and lots of other amazing gift ideas for any pattern lover! Holly’s website offers a wide selection of handpicked creations and designed pieces in collaboration with craftspeople across the world. Check out their beautiful tablecloths, like the one above, which come in a range of colours and patterns. Perfect as a present for the ‘hostess with the most(ess)’, or why not treat yourself and elevate your table dressing over the festive season. Head over to our blog on dressing your Christmas table for some more inspiration and top tips
Punica offers a beautiful selection of unique homewares including lamps, trays, rugs, and more. We love their range of gorgeous trays, which can be such a versatile gift; add some trinkets and accessories and this is lovely way to style a console table without making it look cluttered. Or, use it as an elegant way to serve-up your Baileys and mince pies! Punica is committed to sourcing amazing, luxurious items from around the world and provide you with a curated collection of homeware delights.
3. H&M home
H&M HOME is a great option for beautiful interior goodies, without stretching your budget. We discovered so many great value options while browsing their website, from small token gifts like scented candles (a guaranteed winner!), to some really lovely pieces of furniture, and everything in between. For example, these gold and marble cheese knives, paired with a selection of local cheeses, would be a huge crowd pleaser in any household this Christmas. Or, how about another beautiful tray? This gold mirrored tray would look absolutely amazing displaying perfumes or jewellery on a dressing table. We also loved the pattern of this tableware collection. Purchase individual pieces, or build your own mini-giftsets. One of their mugs could be wrapped up with some quality hot chocolate and small bag of marshmallows as a thoughtful gift for those with a sweet tooth.
4. Boxtree gifts
Although not technically an interior gift, we had to mention Boxtree as it is such a good option if you are struggling to pick out presents, or simply do not have lots of time for Christmas shopping. On the Boxtree website, you can choose from ready-made gift boxes or create your own by selecting items from the wide array of gifts that have been carefully selected for their sustainability credentials. Boxtree only stock gifts from brands that “give back to good causes and help protect our planet for the future." UK next day delivery is included when you send your gift by post, making it ideal for those last-minute gifts!
5. Floella Interiors virtual design service voucher
One of our Virtual Design Gift Vouchers would be a perfect Christmas gift for someone looking to refresh a room, or is at a loss when it comes to inspiration. The service includes a friendly online video call (usually via Whatsapp) where we will get to know them, their likes and dislikes and discuss some initial ideas. We will then go away and create some virtual mood-boards offering ideas and inspiration start points for colours, designs, and products along with the supplier details. We offer this voucher for the very special price of £295 which we can post along with a hand-written note, or can be sent virtually. Check out our website for more information.
Tooka offers lots of really gorgeous interior and homeware items which any colour lover is sure to enjoy. They collaborate with artists from India and Africa with the aim to make 'simple, colourful pieces that are affordable". We think one of their planters, like the one above, would make a lovely gift perhaps accompanied with a colourful plant or shrub. Or how about these beautiful handwoven rainbows – perfect for a young child’s bedroom. They are made in Cape Town by a talented group of Zimbabwean women who lost their hospitality jobs due to Covid, and turned their hands to crafting these colourful creations. Tooka also offers hand painted jugs and bowls, like the one above, in a huge selection of colours - so there will be something to fit any home's interior scheme.
We love Anthropologie and their collection of stunning furniture and other gorgeous interior pieces… which again makes it difficult to pick out only few highlights for this gift guide. This bath caddy is a great way to accessorise a bathroom and would make a nice gift for anyone who loves a good soak. Perhaps you could bundle together some relaxing scented candles with a couple of bath bombs, or even a bottle of bubbly for the ultimate pampering experience! Check out these beautiful hand-painted candle holders, which would make a lovely gift along with some quirky, colourful candles, like these lilac twisted ones or these amazing leopard print ones from Urban Outfitters. We also love this side table, which is available in multiple different patterns and can be easily added into your living room next to an armchair or sofa, to add a pop of colour and refresh a room.
Kalinko has a really lovely selection of gifts for both children and adults. These adorable papier-mache jungle characters come from Burma where they are a traditional children’s toy “often sold on the steps leading up to the Pagodas." This fun kids’ beanbag is made from handwoven cotton and embroidered with tribal motifs from Nagaland. We think it would be perfect for making a cosy spot in the bedroom or playroom to for your child to snuggle up with a good book. Aside from the amazing children's section, Kalinko also offers lots of nice homewares including cushions, handwoven planters, and hand-blown recycled glassware. The placemat above comes in multiple colours and is an easy way to instantly uplift your table setting.
