Stuck For Christmas Gift Ideas? We've Got It Covered! - 2021 Christmas Gift Guide
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Twinkling lights, delicious food and of course: lots of shopping for presents. We’re officially in the countdown to the big day, but if you’ve found yourself dreading opening your advent calendar, you’re not alone. There’s a lot of pressure to find the perfect prezzie, and with all the expectations of the season, it’s tricky to get into the festive spirit.
Whether you’ve been looking for Christmas gifts for her, Christmas gifts for Dads, or just looking for a good secret Santa present idea; worry no more! We’re getting into the spirit of the season with our 2021 Christmas gift ideas, and giving you the rundown on the best presents to give to your nearest and dearest. So, if you’ve been looking for some yuletide inspiration, scroll on for some brilliant gift ideas.
Give The Gift Of Brilliant Home Decor With Interior Presents They'll Love
Let’s face it. We’ve all become homebodies over the last year or so. While we might have spent last Christmas looking at the same four walls, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make them interesting again! Wall art is a great gift for everyone from art enthusiasts to novices. We absolutely love the Freddie Framed Print by Heather Fitz. The perfect gift for Mum’s this Christmas, this cute print fits any home and is an absolute must for animal lovers.
The wonderful thing about giving art for Christmas is how personal you can make it. For example, any cinephiles in your life will really appreciate the amazing Box Office Framed Print by Sabrina Roscino.
Warm Them Up This Winter Season, With Chic And Cosy Throws
Somehow, we always seem to forget just how cold it gets in this part of the world every year. If you know someone that’s always chilly, then why not give them the gift of cosiness?
While a trip to a cosy ski lodge is perfect this time of year, a faux fur throw from James Brindley is definitely the next best thing. With Faux Chinchilla and Faux Arctic Fox options, these throws ooze chalet chic and scandi style trendiness, without any cruelty to animals of course. These throws are seriously sumptuous, and a wonderful gift that anyone who hates the cold will thank you for.
These throws are ideal for winter, however, if you’re looking for a more timeless look they can use year-round, then we have the option for you. This natural herringbone throw is a classic look that will go with anyone’s home. If you need a gift for someone that takes relaxation seriously, then this blanket is an understated gem they’ll love to curl up with. This throw is also scandi style inspired, making it brilliantly on-trend.
Looking For A Gift For Someone That Likes To Be Fashionably Late?
We all know someone that tends to be tardy to the party, so why not give them a gift that lets them be punctual, and have a home that looks amazing? This Thomas Kent Mantel Clock is a gorgeous little addition to any decor and makes for a wonderful office or bedroom timepiece. At just £25, this clock is even secret Santa friendly!
While all our throws are super stylish, you can also get into the spirit of Christmas, with the fabulously festive Reindeer Throw, which makes a perfect present and as decor for your own home over the holidays.
Show Them How Much You Care, With Handmade Jewellery From Malcolm Appleby
If you really want to spoil your nearest and dearest this year, then there’s no better way to do it than with our gorgeous range of jewellery from renowned silversmith Malcolm Appleby. With decades of experience creating one of a kind pieces, this jewellery stands out from the crowd with its carefully etched designs.
Here at Taylor’s, we’re proud to stock these unique pieces both online and in our Aberdeenshire furniture shop, and there really is a piece for everyone in this collection. The artist himself has actually appeared on this blog before, so be sure to take a look at the man behind your Christmas list!
If you’ve been looking for a small piece that works wonderfully as a thoughtful present, then this beautiful Mayflower Pendant is just what you need. For the women in your life, we also recommend a few other pieces they’ll really love. These Primrose Earrings add a subtle floral flair to any outfit, while the beautiful Celestial Cal Ring has all the swirling patterns Malcolm Appleby’s work is so well known for.
If you’re an Aberdeenshire local like us, you may have heard of the iconic Banchory Bangle. These incredible works of art are a gorgeous gift, and it just so happens that we have one of Malcolm Appleby’s favourites. The Wren and Ivy Bangle features a stunning design inspired by nature and deserve a place under your tree.
Need something for your Dad or partner? The Salmon Cufflinks are an amazing gift for any outdoor enthusiasts in your life!
