Gift ideas for the home and garden
Finding the right gift for someone, whether it’s a friend, your mum or a work colleague, can be difficult. You want to give them something they will like, and whilst gift vouchers and money is the easy option, it just doesn’t have that personal touch. Perhaps you need to get a birthday present, a house-warming gift or a thank you present, and you don’t have much time.
You might trawl through the internet and venture out to the shops in search of inspiration, hoping to find that perfect gift straight away. Of course, it’s easier if you know that the recipient has a particular hobby, or is about to go travelling, or to move house. But if you really don’t have a clue, there are a few fall-back options you could consider.
1. Everybody loves a clever gadget, whether it’s accessories for a smartphone, such as speakers or a video projector, or even some illuminated plant pots. There are lots of cool new ideas out there.
2. You can’t go wrong with something sleek and stylish for the kitchen or dining room. There are some great accessories in funky colours to add a dash of designer pizzazz to a home. Whether it’s a cool new cafetiere, or a funky set of salt and pepper mills.
3. But perhaps the gift most likely to please is a beautiful plant, in a unique, designer pot. Everybody likes plants in their home, even if they don’t last very long. You can create a really special gift however by combining a plant with a really cool pot. Check out these new funky plant pots by Hum – suitable for outdoors or in.
