Christmas gift inspiration

November 3, 2015 0 By Nordic House

When do you start your Christmas shopping? Are you the kind of organised soul who sets up a spreadsheet and has it all done in July, or are you more of a last-minute-week-before type?! Personally, I love nothing more than buying gifts for friends – it truly is the best part of Christmas for me, along with entertaining and hosting our loved ones. There’s nothing quite like the thrill of finding that perfect unique Christmas gift for someone, and watching their face as they open and love it!

At Nordic House, we are very proud to offer a huge range of wonderful pieces that make perfect gifts – many of which are exclusive to us and can’t be found on the high street, or indeed, anywhere else in the UK. The wonderful thing about Scandi products is that they are universally timeless and loved – few people can resist their sophisticated charms! This year, our range is bigger than ever, and we have some true delights on offer, which we hope will make your Christmas shopping even more of a joy. Don’t forget as well that we offer free delivery on orders over £75. And if you’re overseas, we most likely deliver to you too – take a look at our international delivery details to find out more.

So without further ado, here are some of my top gift ideas for this Christmas… as ever, click on the images to find out more!

Perfect for a wonderful cosy Nordic inspired feel! With a handsome photographic deer print and surrounded by stars, our large decorative cushion is made from beautiful 100% cotton, finished with stylish contrasting piping and an easy zip closure on the reverse.

geometric lanterns - nordic house

We were instantly captivated by the clean lines and striking design of these stylish geometric lanterns. Simplicity is key here – the candle reflections will shimmer beautifully in the light of the flame.

gold cutlery - nordic house

Made from high quality stainless steel with a stunning titanium rose gold finish, our cutlery has an elegant urban feel. Each set comes in a stylish black gift box and includes 16 pieces – four table knives, four table forks, four desert spoons and four teaspoons; the perfect table setting for four.

sheepskin rug - nordic house

Part of our new Nordic sheepskin collection, our stylish long wool rugs are made from the most luxuriously soft natural Icelandic sheepskin. A luscious shade of soft grey, this rug is the perfect partner summer or winter, for draping over any sofa, chair or simply beside the bed. For true Nordic style, drape it over the back of a chair and snuggle down!

sheepskin pouf - nordic house

Luxuriously super-soft, our short wool curly sheepskin poufs are a joy to behold. Their incredibly tactile texture makes them totally irresistible to touch! The poufs can be added to existing furniture or added a standalone piece to create a cosy Nordic look.

natural tree table - nordic house

Carefully carved, each of our tree tables is unique, its natural shape and beauty preserved. Always a conversation piece! Each wooden top has a different pattern and shape and the softly white-washed legs are the perfect finishing touch. Perfect as a little side table or simply a decorative piece.

goatskin stool - nordic house

Add a touch of Nordic Log Cabin to your decor with our natural goatskin stool from Sweden. The rustic wooden legs are topped off with a beautifully soft goatskin hide seat. This gorgeous handcrafted piece is truly covetable!

There is no end to the ways in which you can use these large white carved wooden wall panels to add pattern and texture to the home. Use them as imaginatively as you can to create a decorative headboard or a filigree window treatment.

These striking grey woven storage baskets will adorn any space with grace. They are made of 0.5cm thick polymer felt that makes them robust enough to store almost anything from toys, books, magazines, knitting essentials, or laundry.
