What do you gift someone who loves interiors (besides asking them outright of course)?! One strategy that I find quite helpful is to start the search within that person's favourite colour palette or theme. If you don't know the person very well then ask someone who does, include a gift exchange card with your choice or simply select a beautiful home fragrance. Here are a few gift ideas which are for the most part home-inspired and/or fall within a certain colour palette/style:

Colour lovers

Who doesn’t love a bit a colour! Depending on your budget and who you’re buying for the options are quite broad. Colour can be brought into a home in lots of ways from a fun and useful beanbag to a pair of statement gardening boots. If you’re unsure, go for a small burst of colour like a fun travel cup or bold toaster and if you know they love a certain colour go for a statement artwork or feature piece of furniture.

Black and white is timeless and modern and a popular choice for many interior lovers. When thinking about the perfect gift look beyond just homewares and expand into areas like appliances (coffee machines), fashion (footwear) or even gadgets (headphones) as style and our style preferences tend to follow a similar wavelength.

From woven baskets and mats to resort-style pot plants an earthy-inspired gift could be a zen-like home fragrance, something for the garden or a reminder to slow down and take some time out.
