Stuck in a rut with Christmas gifts? ‘Tis the season for exchanging presents with loved ones, and while sometimes finding the perfect gift seems simple, no one wants to be making the desperate Christmas Eve dash to the shops to find something!  

To help you out, we’ve put together this creative Christmas gifts guide inspired by the traditional 12 Days of Christmas tune, to give you a few festive and fun gift ideas.  

1. A Partridge in a Pear Tree

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… bakeware to whip-up a crowdpleasing apple and pear pie (or any dessert)! The ideal present for any baking fanatic, put together a small hamper filled with handy cooking utensils such as an icing setmuffin tinmeasuring cups and maybe a few key ingredients 

 2. Two Turtle Doves

Sending turtle doves isn’t the most practical of gifts, so instead create a thoughtful box of Christmas gifts using our Open Fronted Crate in Dove Grey. For the home lover, pop in a few candles and a diffuser and perhaps an ornamental vase filled with fresh flowers, or an artificial plant or two for those who are less reliable at keeping plants alive! 

3. Three French Hens

What do hens lay? Eggs. Perfect for the third verse, our Chiswick Egg Imperial Terracotta Pot in Blue is a great Christmas gift for any garden enthusiast. Available in a range of sizes, pair it with a plant that matches their outdoor aesthetic or a house plant to give the gift of greenery to their festive home.   

4. Four Calling Birds

Of course, what’s a more fitting gift for this verse than a bird feeding station? Ideal for bird watchers or wildlife fans, a bird feeding station is a great way to add charm to a loved one’s garden. Provide them with joy that goes beyond the Christmas period, as our feeding stations can be replenished year-round to keep attracting more feathered friends.

6. Six Geese-a-Laying

To honour specifically the ‘laying’ part in verse six of the 12 days of Christmas song, bedding is always a thoughtful and practical option. Especially for young adults who may have just moved away for university (and always need a spare duvet cover or a cosy throw). It’s a simple and inexpensive option that will never be unappreciated!  

7. Seven Swansa-Swimming

If you’re wanting to splash out, what is more ideal for ‘seven swans a-swimming’ than a hot tub? Available in different styles and sizes, a hot tub is a sure way to keep family, friends and loved ones content and relaxed. Featuring a massage and rapid heating system, our New York Lay-Z Spa even comes with a stunning multicolour LED lighting system – making it the ultimate relaxation station.  

8. Eight Maidsa-Milking

What do you put into coffee? Milk (well, a lot of us do). A coffee table is a great stylish and useful gift option, especially for those who have just moved into a new home or for a partner who is a fan of interior decorating. 

If you’re in search of something a little more practical, how about setting them up with a warming morning brew every morning? As a cafetiere and new set of mugs are also ideal gifting options.
