Christmas is coming (gulp!) and, if you’re like most people, you probably still need to do a few last minute (read: everything) Christmas shopping.
If you’re stuck on what to get that loved one who is thrilled by home DIY, décor and design, then keep reading. In fact, we think these are great gifts for anyone who enjoys making their house feel more like a home.
1. SuzelleDIY: The Book
For those who love Suzelle’s comical Youtube DIY videos (who doesn’t?), you can now find all her DIY top tips and best-kept secrets in one place. Her book features inspiration for everything from household chores made easy and delicious baking recipes to how to maintain your car and make your braai even better. And while this might seem like a gift a female loved one, we promise guys will love it too!
2. Décor and Design Magazine Subscription
If you’re trying to avoid the crazy-busy shopping malls but have missed the online shopping delivery schedule, then listen up! Why not get your husband, wife, mom, dad, aunt, uncle or friend who enjoys décor, design and/or architecture a magazine subscription? Think: Visi, House and Leisure, Habitat, Home and Garden, Ideas, Elle Decor… the list is endless. For those who have tablet devices, make it even easier and get them a digital subscription.
3. Power tools
Let’s face it: without the right tools, no proper DIY work can be done! So, find out what your DIY-loving friend or family member wants to make most and help them get there with the right tools. It can be anything from a drill kit, electric screwdriver, staple gun to just a set of fresh multi-tool set – there’s something for all price ranges.
4. Art work
We get it: art is subjective and is probably one of the riskier gifts to give. But for anyone who is into décor and design, a framed picture, illustration, painting or even photo from a loved one is likely to be a special gift. Chances are also good that if they are a dearly beloved person in your life, you’ll easily know what they do and don’t like. Browse Superbalist, Orms Direct, Mono Online Shop, Mr Price Home and other stores for creative inspiration.
5. Glass Terrariums
A succulent might not be your idea of the most inspiring gift… However, when it comes in a gorgeous glass casing, it might just be the most beautiful gift your design and décor loving friend or family member will get this festive season.
