Inside Story: Gifts for Interiors Lovers

Home comforts high on your Christmas wish list? Don’t neglect to check in with our interiors hot list first.

If you weren’t a homebody before 2020, well, you are now. Our contracted worlds have necessitated many more hours spent within our four walls than ever before, and so, when it comes to Christmas this year, where once we may have lusted after impractical shoes and sparkly trinkets, now it’s all about additions to the home that will make our living space the more pleasurable. Not, we hasten to add, that it has taken a global pandemic to reach that conclusion; we were already terrible suckers for a particularly inviting throw/scatter cushion/ gallery wall long before 2020 unfolded.

However, the year that we’ve had has, we admit, increased the inclination to click merrily away and, in a few days’ time, be rewarded with homey gifts unto ourselves (it’s one way to stave off lockdown ennui). But now, as we look ahead to Christmas, it is of our similarly homely beloveds we think, meaning that our shopping habit is suddenly altruistic. If you are browsing for interiors-focused Christmas gifts this year, we have bundled up all our dreamiest picks for the kitchen, sitting room, bedroom bathroom and gardens and wrapped them all up in a virtual ribbon for you to pore over, room by room.
