I've Spent Days Searching for Homeware, and These Items Are the Best of the Best

My love of fashion will forever be strong, but I have to admit that in recent years I’ve come to hold interiors in equally high esteem. I've become so obsessed with homeware that my Christmas shopping reflects this shift. Every evening as I scroll through Instagram or the new in pages of some of my favourite brands, my mind keeps drifting to how I can make my space feel special and elevated. So much so that my Christmas wish list this year is now filled with items that will make me love my home even more in 2023.

Just like clothes, homeware can be difficult to buy for someone else, as it is so personal—especially when it comes to bigger and more expensive items. So for this gift guide, I've split it into three categories, with gift ideas for maximalists who love colour and prints, for those who want their homes to be calm and neutral and for those who want to shop from independent brands to make their home feel truly unique. Within each category, I've included both small items such as colourful candles (that can be given to a friend or a relative who is tricky to buy for) and bigger-ticket items, from chairs to tableware.

Keep scrolling to see my edit of 43 homeware gifts that I love for Christmas (and every other day in the year).
