When it comes to Christmas gift-giving this year, forget the cosy socks, bath salts and novelty gifts and give your friends and family items they'll use and appreciate, like stylish home-inspired presents.

The festive season is a time of celebrating love, joy and merriment, but endless Christmas gift lists with hard-to-please recipients can be a constant source of stress. Minimise the hassle by giving everyone on your list interiors-inspired Christmas presents they'll actually want to unwrap and use.

Whether someone's just moved into a new home or is celebrating their 25th Christmas under the same roof, home-inspired presents are a great way to make everything from baking to bathing more enticing, and can easily smarten up the kitchen or add a luxurious touch to the bedroom.

Homewares-inspired gifts have universal appeal and are perfect for people you know inside out (why not give your baking-obsessed mum a new dish to help her perfect that apple and blackberry pie she loves to make?). Since everyone can use a stylish new candle, photo frame or vase, home-inspired ideas also make great presents for newer colleagues and family members with hard-to-guess preferences.
