Buying home items for someone can be risky business, you have to either know what they want and need - or - 100% know their style of decor and accessories. The last thing you want to do is to buy gifts that won't be loved, so if you aren't sure what style your recipient is into, you either need to think again and buy something different, do a little research or buy something that's an all round crowd pleaser, something that anyone would have a use for somewhere in their home, whilst remaining an appealing and thoughtful gift. It's not the easiest sector for shopping, but it can be the most well received if you get it right.

Plants are a favourite of mine, they make great gifts, they're loved by many and for anyone like me that isn't particularly green fingered, there's low maintenance options that can still thrive with neglect! Here's a few favourites of mine including a glitzy Christmas special and some long lasting beautiful plants.
When in doubt, vouchers for their favourite home stores or stores where they can have a little more choice can be just the answer. Vouchers also mean getting more for their money in the January sales, as well as buying something they love. Sometimes people feel giving vouchers as a bit of a lazy option, but it's absolutely a valid choice, it shows your kindness of gifting, but allows them the final choice and they will still buy something that will remind them of you so it's still special. You could also attach the vouchers to a small house plant or some simple coasters to add a little more of a 'gift' element.
