When it comes to buying gifts for the women in your life, testers and try on’s are off-limits this year; it's time to get creative. Money intended for holidays abroad has been invested in our living spaces instead, which is why we are saying there’s no better gift than home furnishings and accessories. Helping to transform our homes into the sanctuaries we need them to be as we spend more and more time in them.
The brands featured on buyfair have ranges of carefully crafted pieces guaranteed to add some opulence or zen to any home. Whether it’s your mum, grandmother, sister or daughter, we’ve got the perfect pressies to lift moods, lighten spaces and bring a sense of calm to every home. But where to start?
Introducing texture onto cold, hard surfaces is Claire Gaudion’s speciality, so be sure to have a peek at her warm throws, exquisite rugs and cosy cushions. If it's a luxury item you’re after for a kitchen diner, LSA’s variety of cheese boards are a sure winner for entertaining enthusiasts. A pop of colour? Paint the town red with Victoria Eggs’ prints that are just bursting with British brilliance.
For some gift inspiration when buying for women of any age, take a look below at some of the classic pieces they might be missing in their homes and you may just find your answer.
Designed with the soft folds of pleated fabric in mind, this showstopper is the perfect gift for an elegant lady. A minimalistic yet dramatic way to introduce some interior design into a living space, we love this lantern. If your woman in mind is a born entertainer, then this candle holder would make a grand centrepiece amidst a festive spread or two will take any entrance to the next level. Supplied with the pillar candle positioned inside, opting to gift LSA’s lanterns really will hold that wow factor. Go on, light up ‘her’ Christmas this year.
Is someone you know missing the views but not the commute? For a true splash of London red in a household, there really is no other alternative as vibrant as Victoria Eggs’ signature city prints. They also fit in in pretty much any room in your home, so don’t be afraid to partner them up with her other bright prints from her London range. For the jet setters and working women, this one is bound to go down a treat.
This year has been tough on us all, and if you’re looking to treat your special someone with a luxury gift this Christmas then look no further than Claire Gaudion’s soft textiles which will quite simply breathe fresh air into your forgotten spaces. Her collaboration with Momo presents earthy tones and natural influences like this handloom woven rug. But that isn't even the best bit. This line includes rugs just like this one which is entirely made out of recycled plastic bottles. Its design is heavily influenced by the patterns we see on the ocean’s surface, which is why there really is no explanation necessary for how special this piece is. Check out her other items in the recycled range here.
In keeping with Claire Gaudion’s fabulous designs, this throw is everything you could wish for and more when snuggled up on the settee. Reversible and sporting vibrant prints either side in pink and orange, this blanket looks fab even when just merely draped over the arm of a timeworn sofa, bringing that unmistakable softness that only 100% lambswool can. Exquisitely made using a double weave technique, the quality oozes that luxe appeal. Great for new homeowners or women who seek a bit of luxury pizazz in their home.
For winers, diners and cheese and grape-viners, this magnificent LSA platter board is a kitchen must-have, not just over the Christmas season but for all hardcore home entertainers. After multiple rounds of pleading ‘no more’, there is no greater way to indulge - before the chocolates come out - than with a stunning cheese ‘tasting’ board. Made from soft-grained ash wood and complete with a leather toggle, the premium finish found in this LSA board is like no other. Ideal for home entertainers, cooking lovers or fans of a good old feast. Check out the other variations in this range here.

Finally, basket bags are back in and we are a fan of anything natural and woven that will mentally transport us to the islands of the Caribbean. This Bloomingville Huma bag is the ideal size for storing all of the daily essentials - but who said this couldn’t be done in style? Complete with woven toggles and a long strap this pretty-meets-practicable carrier could quite easily become a wardrobe staple. But don't stop there, this bag could also be used for decoration and storage or as a shopping and picnic bag. Either way, it is just perfect and on-trend with the female fashionistas names all over it.
