It’s a scary thought: Christmas is less than a month away. That generally means finding presents for at least one or two people who are nearly impossible to buy for.

Take it from us – you can do a lot worse than wandering around a good homewares store. You might end up with something merely serviceable, such as a candle or mug. But then again, you could find a statement piece the receiver will treasure for years to come. Our fingers are crossed for you.
