Christmas homeware present ideas…

by Carlisle Homes

In the mood to give a bit of homeware love this Christmas? Or maybe putting together a hint list for your own gift stocking? We’ve handpicked some ideas we’ve found along our travels to get the inspiration flowing…

Let’s face it, scented candles never go out of style, and when they are teamed with an on trend marble look and a copper lid, it’s a no brainer! This handmade marble candle by Lovely Pair (sourced from Hard To Find) will look great on your mantle….(recommend the summer inspired champagne and pomegranate scent).


If you have walked through our Radison display home at Aston Estate, Craigieburn, then you have probably already fallen in love with this beautiful blue Verona water jug and tumbler set from Bed Bath n Table. Such a lovely gift idea and perfect for a tropical punch with colourful summer fruits.


Serving ware that brings a rustic unstructured look to the table is very popular, thanks to the multitude of celebrity chefs we are exposed to. You definitely should check out this Duo Cheese Board from Freedom, the acacia wood gives a warm Scandi feel to offset the cool white marble, a good all-rounder present.


Now, there are cushion lovers and there are people that just don’t get it. For the former, you can never have too many, variety is the spice of life and a festive style for the collection is just perfect. You can’t beat Kmart for affordable cushions of all sizes and colours, and this reindeer beauty is a perfect gift for someone who loves the festive season.


Partner the vibrant colours of your summer salads with the refreshing hues of this Rockpool Blue enamel serving plate from My Beach Kitchen. Each plate has been hand dipped in vitreous porcelain enamel, which means they each have their own unique character.


This one is hot off the press! A sneak peek at the new Piermont opening soon, featuring the gorgeous Duo Throw from Aura by Tracie Ellis. A pure cotton soft knit for a bit of monochrome amid your colours. And, another for the cushion lover, the stunning birdlife print cushion from DCB Designs.


Add a touch of contemporary style with this classic copper alarm clock. Perfect for the bedroom, study, mantle, actually this accessory would fit in anywhere. Check it out at the Regent on display at Rosenthal Estate, Sunbury, and fall in love!


For something a bit on the quirky side, we found these mini hexagon shadon box sets at Typo. You can hang them, stack them, or just have them side by side, either way they look great with your little collections and bits and pieces in them. Great for kids’ rooms or to add interest to side board.
