Our Favourite Christmas Gift Ideas For 2022
Nights are getting colder and the sound of jingle bells is in the air - the holiday season is almost here and we're feeling the festive spirit already. Shopping for your nearest and dearest can have you feeling less than jolly, so we're helping ease your seasonal stress with our official 2022 Christmas gift guide!
Christmas Gift Ideas For Her
Finding gifts for her can be tricky, whether you need ideas for your S.O or your family. Here at Taylor's on the High Street, we have plenty of unique gift ideas that they will absolutely love - and are sure to impress everyone around the tree.
Is it really Christmas without some new jewellery? Adding some sparkle to the season is one of our favourite ways to celebrate and with jewellery from Malcolm Appleby you can do just that. Malcolm Appleby and his stunning work have been featured on our blog before, and it's not hard to see why.
Painstakingly crafted by hand, each piece by Malcolm Appleby takes inspiration from the great outdoors - with gorgeous results. We love the Gingko Banchory Bangle, which features a swirling leaf design. If you want to give them something different, these pieces are perfect.
Daily life can be stressful enough without the hectic holiday rush, so why not give them the gift of “me-time”? A vanity is a wonderful way to add some luxury to their routine and is a showstopping present for Christmas. We love this sleek scandi-inspired piece, and it lasts much longer than a spa hamper!
You can also add some amazing accessories to round out the look, like this silver double heart sculpture. Another dressing table must-have is this silver effect trinket tray - perfect for holding all their jewellery.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Him
If you're struggling to come up with gifts for him by Christmas, don’t worry, we have it covered. Shopping for the man in your life can be a long slog, but rather than reaching for the nearest body spray gift set, try one of our brilliant gift ideas instead.
Malcolm Appleby is renowned for his incredible jewellery for women, but there are plenty of pieces that men will absolutely love. If you want to give them something special, then why not opt for one of these unique gifts?
These sleek cufflinks by Malcolm Appleby are made from real silver, and feature a wonderful design that’s sure to turn heads! Cufflinks are a great present, especially during the festive season when there are plenty of special occasions to look forward to.
If you know someone who spends heaps of time in their mancave - upgrading their set-up with a comfy new chair is an ideal gift. There’s nothing better than kicking back and putting your feet up, so help them do it in style.
The Kyoto Zane Chair comes with a matching footstool, so they can stretch their legs in ultimate comfort. The Julian Bowen Aria Recliner is absolutely perfect for afternoons in front of the TV, and pairs well with a handy sofa table.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Budding Botanists
When it comes to the plant parents and green-fingered people in your life, we have plenty of floral furnishings and horticultural gifts to browse. Blending amazing home interiors and a jungle of plants is simple, especially with the rise in biophilic design!
If they need somewhere to display their house plant collection, the Draftsmen Collection Display Shelf has plenty of space for indoor plants. You can even add these chic Leaf Sculptures to give their display some extra edge.
Every plant needs a good pot to flourish in, and we have fashionable options that’ll instantly upgrade their look. The Large Copper Bullet Planter adds a whole new element to the look of their home with a trendy copper finish and is a unique piece they’ll love.
We absolutely love the Santorini Blue Ceramic Planter, which gives any plant a luxurious new look with stunning blue hues. You can also go for one of the matching blue vases for your friends that are obsessed with flowers.
The idea of biophilic design is to welcome elements of the outdoors into your home, so why not go for leafy home decor? The Laura Ashley Pembrey Cushion features heaps of gorgeous florals and is printed on sumptuous velvet.
You can even create an art-deco look inspired by the world of plants, and give a fabulous gift in the process. The Metallic Cheese Plant Image is effortlessly glamorous and helps add some beautiful botanical inspiration to any home.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Dads
Shopping for the man who has it all can be a nightmare, especially when it comes to dads who are notoriously tight-lipped about what they actually want for Christmas. We know that getting the gift right is important, and we have plenty of ideas to help you find the perfect present.
The humble shed is a paradise for all the DIY-loving dads out there, so make sure they can enjoy their alone time in peace. This grey-washed plaque is sure to give them a laugh and gives their space a fun new furnishing.
If cooking is their thing, they’ll love the Butchers Cuts Ultimate Wall Plaque. With a stone grey design and animal illustrations, this wall hanging is a must-have kitchen accessory for anyone obsessed with all things BBQ. It’s definitely an upgrade from the standard apron Christmas gift! You can even pair it with some new cookware and let them embrace their inner chef.
Whether he’s a wine connoisseur or just loves a wee dram in the evening - every collector needs a good place to display it. The Live Edge Collection Hanging Wine Rack can hold up to ten bottles, with a high-quality oak and brushed grey metal finish.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Mums
Mums are usually behind the scenes during the festivities, creating all the magic of the season we all know and love. Finding the perfect gift for the one who makes Christmas special can be a tall order, but we have plenty of great ideas. From fabulous furnishings to relaxing gifts - we have her wishlist covered.
There’s nothing quite like a gift given straight from the heart, after all, it’s the thought that counts. If giving your mum something special is on your to-do list, why not put a family photo into the Almond Street Alford Frame?
Flowers are a go-to gift for mums, but we often forget they need somewhere they can be put on display. The Large Conran Vase has a blue and grey ceramic design that is both contemporary and oh-so-stylish. You can even add some poinsettia blooms for a more festive look.
The holiday season is all about spending time with your closest loved ones, and mums will love this family-centric piece of decor. This wall plaque has a homespun look and is a charming addition to their walls.
If she could do with some extra relaxing time, then give her the gift of a great night's sleep, with the Laura Ashley Allport Winter Robin Duvet Set. With a charming robin pattern, this duvet set is lovely and festive.
Jewellery is another way to make sure your mum has a wonderful Christmas, and the Malcolm Appleby Flouries Earrings are truly one of a kind. Elegant and crafted by hand, these earrings are a wonderfully unique gift you won’t find anywhere else.
Christmas Gifts For The Host With The Most
We all know someone that loves to host, and at this time of year, there are plenty of opportunities to show off their party game skills. Whether you’re shopping for a social butterfly or someone with cosmopolitan taste, we have heaps of great gift ideas for those who live to entertain.
Keep their favourite tipple close to hand, with the vintage-inspired Silver Round Drinks Trolley. This chic drinks trolley is absolutely fabulous and can be used to create their own personal home bar - with black and gold also available.
The trolley is both compact and moveable for extra convenience, and can easily be tucked away when not in use. If they are more of a sommelier than a cocktail aficionado, then why not opt for a wine rack?
This Industrial Inspired Bottle Rack can comfortably hold nine bottles of wine and features a modern metal design with a trendy twist. A subtle piece of decor that’s both practical and stunning, this wine rack is a must-have for any collector.
Secret Santa Gift Ideas
One of the most daunting aspects of the holiday season is shopping for people you might not know as well. Whether it's a work secret Santa or a white elephant gift exchange, our stocking fillers will make sure your present is a hit.
If you need a gift for someone in the office, you really can't go wrong with some stylish stationery. The Crescent Moon Velvet Notebook is a good addition to any desk and features an on-trend celestial design.
For anyone that loves a relaxing night in, a diffuser is a must. All that’s required is a few drops of their favourite essential oil and the calming scent is sure to create an atmosphere where they can unwind.
It’s not really Christmas without mugs and fuzzy socks, and when it comes to cheap Christmas gift ideas, there’s nothing better. Cheerful and cosy, this mug and sock set is a foolproof gift for your next exchange.
