Best homeware gifts to buy this Christmas
Homeware gifts under £10
Hanging Wooden Frame - £8
A photo frame is a surefire winner when it comes to Christmas presents - who doesn't have a few nice photos tucked away in need of a home? I love the rope hanger on this 36cm x 31cm x 2cm natural wood frame from Matalan, which gives it a charming rustic effect. Plus, at £8 it makes a lovely budget Secret Santa gift or stocking filler! Chosen by Rebecca.
Bumblebee & Small Polka Dot A6 Diary - £7.99
From beloved British ceramics maker Emma Bridgewater comes this handy A6 diary to give you a jump-start on the year ahead. The journal is illustrated with two of the brand's best-loved motifs, their colourful polka dot and bumblebee designs. Chosen by Rebecca.
Seeing Stars mini books - £8.99
If the YourHomeStyle team do a Secret Santa this year, this is definitely what I'd be getting for Katie, our resistant astrologist.
And even if you're a bit more the fence about star signs, like me, the bold and beautiful design of these little tomes means they'll look fabulous on a bookcase, shelf, coffee table or even as quirky 'loo literature'. Chosen by Rebecca.

Incienso De Santa Fe Teepee Incense Burner - £19
For those of us that don’t have a warming wood burner at home, you can recreate a little of the magic with this charming incense burner in the style of a Native American teepee. Chosen by Katie.
Gourmet Cheese Baker - £16.73
You'd be hard-pressed to find a gourmet who can resist the gooey charms of a baked brie or camembert - and a cheese baker is an essential piece of equipment to ensure you don't end up with the disappointment of cheese oozing apart in the oven before you get a chance to tuck in. We love this vintage-look blue and white cheese baker, which comes in a smart gift box ready to be wrapped for your lucky recipient. Chosen by Rebecca.
Huggable Grumpy Frog Heating Pad - £19
I’m sorry, but who could refuse this adorable lil frog? It heats up in the microwave in just a minute so it’s more efficient than boiling a full kettle for a hot water bottle and it’s the perfect size to tuck under your jumper when working from home. Chosen by Katie
Magnetic Monochrome Memo Board - £18
This stylish monochrome memo board from Cox & Cox comes with a set of five magnetic black counters to hold notes in place, and two keyhole hooks on the reverse for easy hanging.

Artificial Grass in Geometric Pot - £16
A houseplant is always my go-to for a quick and easy way to instantly brighten up a dull corner of any room, so it's always a welcome gift. But if, like me, your lucky recipient isn't blessed with green fingers, you're better off choosing a convincing artificial plant like this one from M&S.
This realistic bright green shrub comes in a stylish textured geometric vase, ready to go on display anywhere in the home. Chosen by Rebecca.

Chosen by Rebecca.
KAMBUKKA Etna Leak-Proof Travel Mug - £27.99
A travel mug is a must-have accessory for anyone who's often on the go, but we've all had the experience of a favourite bag ruined by a leaky lid. Luckily, Kambukka's insulated 3ooml travel mug comes with a lockable lid that should remain totally leak-proof.
Pop it in your bag and you'll be doing the planet a favour when you get a takeaway coffee - plus, the option of making your own hot drinks at home means you can save money, too. Available in Deep Teal (pictured) and Black. Chosen by Rebecca.
Ceramic Salt and Pepper Mill Set - £23.99
A salt and pepper mill set makes a wonderful gift for a loved one - it's something that every home needs, so you know it won't end up in the back of the kitchen cupboard alongside the pasta maker and fondue set. Plus, it doesn't need to match the existing decor perfectly to add a touch of fun to the dinner table.
This set from HAUPUSEN, available from Amazon, is made out of sleek Scandi-look wood, topped with ceramic heads finished in a trendy watercolour effect. Fully-adjustable so you can select your preferred grind. Chosen by Rebecca.
Rosado stemless champagne flutes - £26
Stemless champagne flutes not only look super stylish, they're also far less prone to being knocked over by a clumsy passerby - ideal if you're expecting a packed house this Christmas.
I'm a huge fan of Art Deco and this set of four flutes from Oliver Bonas, in on-trend ribbed pink glass with a gold foil rim, are ideal for lending a touch of 1920s glamour. It makes for a pretty Christmas present, and I'd also bear it in mind as a housewarming gift. Chosen by Rebecca.

String of Pearls Electronic Diffuser - £30
It may look like an artificial plant in a cute ceramic pot, but this is actually an electronic scent diffuser. Simply fill with water and a little of your favourite essential oil, then plug in and set your preferred scheduled - you can choose from a refreshing spritz every one, two or three hours, or a continuous mist - and the diffuser will get busy adding subtle ambience to any room, while gently masking common household odours into the bargain. Chosen by Rebecca.
Downward Duck Upcycled Flip Flop Yoga Block - £33
For the yogis in your life, how about this ingenious yoga block that’s made out of upcycled flip-flops? Exercise kit can look so drab sometimes, but I love the vibrant colours of this yoga block and would happily keep it out on display. Chosen by Katie.

What do you buy the man or woman who has everything? A hobby kit that lets you learn a new skill can be a great quirky Christmas gift for that one person who's always tricky to buy for. The Sculpd kit comes with all the equipment you'll need to try your hand at potting, including 2kg of mouldable air-dry clay, pottery tools and acrylic paint and varnish for the finishing touches - as well as a 20-page booklet to guide you through.

Mango Wood Medium Hurricane Candle Holder - £35
The White Company is one of our favourite destinations for sophisticated homeware, and this hurricane lantern would make a wonderful gift for anyone who appreciates the brand's chic and understated style.
The glass bell is hand-blown in India, and sits atop a natural mango wood base that’s just the right size for a stylish pillar candle. I'd style it on a mantelpiece or coffee table - anywhere it can be admired by visitors! Chosen by Thea.
Ovenware Set - £165
I’m a big fan of the Always Pan from Our Place so was very excited to see they launched an ovenware set. This is certainly a splurge buy, but for a beautiful product that works a treat and will last a lifetime, I think it’s worth it. It would make an amazing housewarming present. Chosen by Katie.
