Useful Christmas Gifts for the Home

Are you still trying to come up with gifts for loved ones this Christmas? Have you spent ages wondering what to get everyone?

Why not get something that’s useful for the home? There are plenty of practical gift ideas that can be both thoughtful and handy. If you’re looking for some inspired gift ideas that are essential items, here are some suggestions to help you tick everyone off your list.

Reading Lamp

If you’ve exhausted every book suggestion to get for your loved ones and you can’t get away with giving vouchers again, why not treat them to a reading lamp. Stores such as Coopers of Stortford stock LED lamps that create a comfortable glow for those who enjoy curling up with a good book.

Woollen Throw

A throw is a lovely addition to any home. They’re both inviting and practical as they can protect sofas and keep everyone toasty. There are lots of options available in a variety of shades and styles, but a woollen version is an ultimate gift for those seeking something snug and cosy this Christmas.


Clocks will always be useful, however buying the one that perfectly suits the person you’re giving one too is a lovely way to show that you know their style to a tee. Are they a fan of vintage or do they love all things modern? Is their home filled with chesterfields and drinking cabinets or are they happy hipsters? Take your time to select the right clock for them.

Photo Frame

We all have thousands of photos saved on our phones and stored on our devices, but if your friend or family member is always snapping away, why not choose a photo frame that suits their style? Choose one that has space for a few images and print off some of the ones that they’ve shared with you so that you can fill them with memories.

Ladder Bookshelf

There are lots of pretty ladder-style bookshelves out there and they make such pretty additions to the home. They can fit in most properties, from studio flats to family homes, and they offer great storage solutions, from displaying photos and houseplants in the lounge to storing towels and toiletries in the bathroom.     


Whether you opt for a wall planner that your friend can pop in their office at home or a calendar your mum can stick on her fridge, organisers are a lovely way to help your loved ones get the new year off to a good start. You can personalise them, add photos to them, or choose dedicated ones to help them do the weekly food shop.

What useful gifts for the home will you be buying for everyone this Christmas?
