Christmas Gift Ideas That Last as Home Décor Pieces

It's the jolly season upon us and with all traditions and celebrations, there's also somewhat frustrating part of looking for Christmas gifts. If you're on the lookout for Christmas gifts that last, there's no better choice than home decor gifts.

Choosing a gift for someone to display in their home can be even more frustrating than finding the usual expendable Christmas gifts. On the other hand, if you're shopping for a friend or family member, you can give a home decor gift that will be appreciated.

When you shop for a home decor gift you will encounter a wide
range  of possible gifts. Focus on your friend's needs and likes
to narrow down potential choices.

When to Not Give Home Décor Gifts

Small figurines make for an ideal home decor gift, as long as your
host likes it.

If you've never been to your friend's home, I would definitely not give a household item unless it's for a recent bride with a gift registry.

Even if you're gift shopping with your friend and she points out a darling framed picture or frilly pillow, that doesn't mean the item will fit in her personal interior décor. Get to know your friend's home and tastes first, before you choose a home decor gift.

Instead, take a different approach. Perhaps you know your friend collects figurines like I do. I started collecting fish figurines years ago.

However, I collect tiny glass antique fish, about one inch tall. The large wooden fish my mother gave me just doesn't fit my home décor.

5 Home Décor Gift Ideas

If you have been to your friend's home and know she needs to complete her home decorating with accessories, here are some home decor gift ideas:

1. Colour scheme

Double check your friend's colour scheme. Your gift doesn't have to match perfectly to blend in. But it's good to know your friend's home colour scheme, so you can choose your home decor gifts accordingly.

Choose a home decor gift that fits in with your friend's
colour scheme in the room.

2. Choose something different

Make sure her home isn't too crowded with many small decorating items. Many small accessories make a home feel cluttered. Choose something different, yet complimentary.

'Turn me Around' pillow
Select a gift that's complimentary, yet different to stand out
and be memorable.

3. Make a gift of your own

Make something yourself that has meaning to you both. For instance, make a stained glass icon to reflect light in her bathroom window. That adds a nice personal touch, too.

Making gifts of your own could be even a bundle of books
your friend likes, or a potted plant.

4. Frame a snapshot

Find an old snapshot of you two from the past. Get the picture touched up professionally and frame it in a frame that blends in with her home decorations.

5. Give a huge candle

Give your friend a huge candle dressed up with pearls, sequins, or seashells with a base that matches her style. For instance, if she loves silver, crystal, ceramics, or brass, choose that material.

If you give thought to your gift with these home decor gifts suggestions, you will make your friend happy. Not to mention giving a Christmas gift that comes from the heart.
