Now some women would love nothing more than to get a blender for Christmas, hey even some men would be thrilled receiving such a item. This is why we have given Gifts for the Home its very own category!Emile Henry do some gorgeous sets from kitchen basics to ceramic roasters. One of my favourites is the crème brûlée set which includes 6 dishes and a blow torch. The sets are available in a variety of colours and the dishes are brilliant quality. It has an RRP of £59.99 but I have found a fab offer here OR you could win one when our competitions are launched! Now with 2 messy eaters in this house we avoid table clothes because even with place mats they both manage to get food all over the table. At Christmas we all like to be fancy so this year JML have come to our rescue with their Magic Table cloth. It has Spillguard™ Technology embedded into the weave of the fabric which resists soaks and stains. It makes an impenetrable barrier that stops liquid seeping into the weave. It is also machine washable so it is extremely practical and it looks good! JML have them on offer at the moment so check them out here! If you are looking for a unique and thoughtful gift this year Make an Entrance offer personalised door mats that are absolutely brilliant! They are made from high quality PVC backed coir matting with your message printed in black in bold 5.5cm high capital letters and finished with a neat trimmed edge. They retail for £29.99 and the quality is great so makes it totally worth it and they will make a perfect present for anybody. De Buyer pans are made from iron for very high heat cooking. They cook the food extremely quickly sealing in all the vitamins and minerals. After seasoning the pans build up their own non-stick coating meaning that the more they are used the better they get so you can see why they are used worldwide by professional caterers. Prices start at £19.99 and they are available from Lakeland. If you fancy splashing out a bit this Christmas, Gorgeous Graffiti certainly live up to their name. They are hand crafted and hand finished to order and can be personalised at no extra cost. I love this initial and name canvas but they also have some with lovely phrases on. This one retails for £75 and prices go right up to £345 but they are absolutely stunning pieces of art. Hurricane vases are a running joke in our house after my Dad bought my Mum one identical to one she already had as an emergency birthday present because he had forgotten but when I saw this one I knew it would be a perfect Christmas gift. It is made from decorative glass with a felt based, metal stand and is perfect for inside and outside use due to the vase itself sheltering the flame. At only £29.99 from Drift Living, this elegant gift it is perfect for any home.
