A quirky Christmas gift guide for the full family (whilst sticking to your budget)

Yuletide season is fast approaching and I know most of you aren’t that prepared yet as you don’t have an enough budget to spend for the gifts that mostly of your Godchildren are looking forward to, or even your family and loved ones. But no worries, because you can still stretch the budget you have now by simply following the Christmas gift guide below.

Depending on your approach, shopping for Christmas can be super exciting or a bit stressful! Either way, we all have similar objectives in mind — to buy a gift that someone will love. However, it can get boring buying the same sorts of gifts year after year — there’s only so many aftershave sets that one man can look happy to receive! Instead, we have created a gift guide of quirky presents for everyone on your Christmas list.

For children

Children can be difficult to please and it’s hard to keep up with the latest technology that all their friends may have. Here are some gift ideas that are different to what they might normally receive:

£-££

Younger children can get over excited when it comes to Christmas, eagerly awaiting the day that they can open their gifts. One good present idea for children is a DIY stocking making kit. It can be made into a fun family activity on Christmas Eve or in the school holidays — it’s something different and it allows them to have their very own, personalised stocking!

For older children, a smartphone projector could be a fun gift. It can be used for watching films and TV shows — they simply slip their smartphone into the cardboard box and the glass lens projects the screen onto a blank wall.

££-£££

Young people love taking selfies! Whether it’s to post on social media or capture a fun memory with their friends, they’re always snap happy. But, could a ‘dronie’ be the next selfie? The latest in drone technology means it’s able to take photographs and videos from a height. Differing in camera quality and flight time, there’s a full range that you can browse here.

£££-££££

For children who enjoy drawing, you could buy them the Osmo creative set. Different to the traditional colouring book and pen — this set brings their creativity to life with the help of a tablet or smartphone.

Fitness bands have been must-haves for adults for a few years now, but did you know that children can get involved too? Fitness bands designed for children are durable and let them set daily activity goals whilst tracking steps, sleep and recommended exercise.

Your other half

It’s always nice to get your other half a gift that they weren’t expecting. These quirky gifts should surprise them and put a smile on their face.

£-££

Does your other half like cooking? And beer? How about buying them a cookbook with recipes on how to do both! Browse the collection online and choose one that you think would be suitable for your partner.

Vintage is always in, and one thing that has come back into fashion is the instant camera. The retro-style polaroid camera is a good gift for anyone who loves taking photos and saving them to look back on later.

££-£££

For a more upmarket gift how about something that everyone can enjoy — a pizza oven! The retro oven can create other things too such as bacon, eggs and pancakes and features a non-stick coating with various temperature settings.

One idea for men is a twist on a popular fashion trend. Retailers of high-quality leather boots, Frank Wright, offer a blue suede derby shoe that is a contemporary addition to any man’s wardrobe — different to any other shoes that he owns!

£££-££££

For a pricy gift, why not take your loved one on at trip like no other? Reykjavik in Iceland is one place that’s different to the traditional city break — spend the night under the stars and take the chance of spotting the Northern Lights if you stay in the winter. Or how about taking them to the set of one of their favourite films or movies? Dubrovnik in Croatia is a beautiful setting and you can spot many of the scenes from the much-loved show, Game of Thrones.

Elders, aunts uncles and family friends!

For everyone else, here are gifts that will come in handy or that they may appreciate:

£

For the avid traveller, a scratch map could be the perfect gift. They can frame it and place it somewhere where they can appreciate it — remembering the places that they’ve visited and the things that they’ve seen! As they visit new places, they can scratch these off too, highlighting their recent adventures.

For a keen gardener, how about an indoor allotment? Your gardening friend may be upset that they can’t spend as much time in the garden as they usually do in the colder months and this could be a nifty alternative. They can plant herbs for cooking or smaller plants and appreciate it in the comfort of their home!

££

Know someone who is always losing their keys? The Tile Mate could be the perfect gift for them. The small Bluetooth tracker can be attached to anything, from phones to keys and bags — they’ll never lose their sought after items again.

£££

As we said earlier, vintage items always come back around. How about buying a vinyl turntable for a family or friend? Many people have saved their old vinyls for memories and would love to be able to play them again! You can also buy new music in vinyl form for them to enjoy too.

So I hope this may help you a bit to have an idea on what better presents you should give in to your loved ones.

Interior Decor Tips To Feel At Home In Your Rental

With less than one-third of Millennials being in a financial position that allows sufficient stability and income to buy a home, it’s no wonder that most of young adults are still navigating the troubled waters of the tenancy agreement. As a rule of the thumb, you want to be able to become a homeowner as soon as possible so that you don’t have to spend your wages in wasted rent payments. Paying back a mortgage might be just as expensive every month, but it’s an investment in your future, as opposed to a regular financial loss. Admittedly, it’s not easy to gather enough savings to afford the deposit on your first mortgage. So, in the meantime, more and more Millennials continue to rent a home instead of owning one. Some are 40 or more when they finally can buy their first home, which is a statement on our dire economic times. If you choose to become a tenant, you have of course less to worry about the costs of renovation and home improvements because these are not your responsibility. However, there are other kinds of home improvement works that tenants would love to be in control of and it’s decorating. Living in a place that has been stripped bare of any decoration doesn’t feel homely. So how can you make the most of your rental without losing your deposit?

Find your dream rental

What makes you feel at home?

Feeling at home where you live is a feeling that relies on a variety of factors. Of course, the interior decor matters, as you want a cozy nest that reflects your personality. But as a tenant, you also need a property that can fulfil all your comfort requirements and provide the amenities you need. First of all, the location is key to finding the best rental. You need to find the happy compromise of the distance to work, distance to local facilities and shop, how safe the district is, and naturally whether or not your social groups live within close distance. It doesn’t matter how well you decorate your rental is the location is wrong; the place will never feel homely. While there is a natural wear and tear in let properties, you should be paying close attention to details as you visit it. A place that is in dire need of renovation, such as showing loose cables or with crumbling plasters around the door frame is never a good choice. While it’s the landlord responsibility to maintain the accommodation, you can bet that a landlord who hasn’t cared to renovate before putting the property on the market will not care to do once you’ve moved in either. If you own a car and you need to drive to work, you should also focus on properties that offer a parking spot, on the street or with a garage. Nobody wants to be stressed out every day at the idea of trying to find an appropriately safe parking space for their vehicle. Finally, make sure to check the heating and cooling systems as you visit. Old radiators and A/C units will be noisy and lack performance, especially if they look like they haven’t been maintained in a while.

The happy spot

So, once you’ve established that the property you’ve got your eye on is ideally locally, in good condition and comes with its own parking space, it’s time to dive in and make a list of the best homes to let. When you’re looking for a rental house, ideally you’d like to meet the landlord before signing the agreement, even if your requirements will be handled by a real estate agency. Getting to know the landlord is helpful to gauge whether or no you can build a trust relationship with them and enjoy your rented home. Some nightmare landlords, for instance, are slow to make necessary repairs, which can leave their tenants in difficulties for several days or weeks. Others have a soft spot for DIY and prefer to fix the property by themselves. However, unless they’re qualified to work with electricity and plumbing systems, there are things that are best left to a professional. Make sure that you and your landlord take every precaution to ensure a happy relationship from the start. If you get to meet the landlord, you might find that some are very amiable, and offer to let fully or partially furnished properties. It’s not uncommon in university towns to find apartments that come with the full furniture. With discussion with your landlord, you can inquire whether you could get a partially furnished property – aka whether they can store the furniture and leave the appliances in – so that you can have more room to play when you decorate.

Decorate your bedroom

You might not be allowed to paint the walls, use too many nails to hang frames and shelves, and stick a cute wallpaper border in the corridor, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t create a cozy and personal space in your rental property. Let’s begin with the most important room in your home, the bedroom, the place where you can rest and recharge your batteries before the next day. If you happen to have more than one bedrooms, you’re in for a treat: There’s plenty of inspirational designs for the master, children or guest bedrooms. All you need is a little bit of imagination and care to make it work. When you have to keep your wall in the crisp white or magnolia shade they’ve been painted in by your landlord, you need to use the furniture to bring a touch of color and personality. Indulge in a king size bed if the room is big enough; you’ve deserved something to make you fall in love with the room. What’s better than a comfortable and stylish huge bed, I ask you! Well, there’s something even better than picking high-quality bed and mattress, and that is choosing smooth and bright bed sheets for a luxury feel. If you want something romantic, have a look for deep purple or red shades, preferably in satin fabric. Do you want a relaxing bedroom that helps you to switch off at the end of a long day? Get yellow, pastel green, and pale blue sheets as these colors can soothe the mind.

Let the bed sheets do the talking

A splash of freshness in the bathroom

Ah, the bathroom! It’s the most difficult room in a rental because it always shows the signs of tear and wear of previous tenants. It’s not a matter of lack of care: Bathrooms are used every day, several times a day, so it’s fairly normal that they feel a little aged and worn out. In short, you need to expect some fair wear and tear, and so does your landlord too. But most things can be cleaned up if you put your heart to it and know some tricks. For instance, grubby silicone seals can be cleaned using bleach in small quantities on the spots you can’t reach to turn it back white. For the tiles grout, you can use an organic mix of baking soda, vinegar and lemon to spray on and brush away. It does wonders! Within a few days of hard scrubbing, you might find that your bathroom suddenly looks rejuvenated. Then, all you need is to add the finishing touches: A new shower curtain if applicable, luxury cotton towels in bright colors and place scented candles around the bathtub.

A brand new used kitchen

The kitchen is the second room in a rented property to show signs of tear and wear, so it’s important to check the conditions of the appliances as you move in. Most landlords would agree to change damaged appliances or items that are becoming dangerous because of old age. However, make sure to check the tenancy agreement before you sign: If the appliances are not listed as part of the property, then it’s likely that your landlord will refuse to change them. Other elements that are great to give your kitchen a new feel is to buy exciting and high-quality kitchenware, from your pans to your plates. A good pot can make an old cooker looks like new! And finally, get your hand on a set of table and chairs for the kitchen/dining corner. It doesn’t matter if you can’t find them new: Maybe you can recycle an old set with chalk paint. With a bit of DIY magic, you’ll feel instantly at home.

An inviting living room

Finally, we’re getting to your most exuberant room, the living room, the place where you welcome your guests and spend most of your evenings. Start with a bright and thick rug to act as an eyecatcher and change the ambiance of the room. In a minimalist decor, neutral colors work best. But in a rental, you want to maximize the fun element of the interior and make a bold color statement. Orange, green and purple are trend colors this season! Then, all you need to do is to buy a cozy sofa and cover it in cushions and throws to create a sense of personal warmth. Use a chest of drawers or a low standing shelving units to create a storage corner for your DVDs, books and souvenirs.

So, are you ready to feel at home in your rental? Share other decor ideas you’ve tried in the comments!

5 Ways to Add a Hint of Luxury to Your Home

Your home is where you entertain, rest and relax. It needs to be a space that can work for you and your dynamic lifestyle, transforming from a party pad to a luxurious escape without too much trouble. And with a bit of design magic, it can work for all aspects of your life.

Whether you live in a large penthouse or a bijoux duplex, there are some tricks you can play to make your space feel like a spa hotel room. Give yourself the pleasure of a little bit of luxury with these simple tips.

Mirrors

If you have a small dark space mirrors are ideal for creating the illusion of extra space and bouncing what light you do have around the room making it appear brighter. One large mirror will instantly add space to your room, especially if it reaches the ceiling.

Another good trick is to hang a mirror opposite a window. This will give the room a light and airy feel with plenty of natural light. A reflected window will also give you a greater connection with the outside.

Decorative mirrors will add interest to your walls too and could be used in place of artworks. Collect a range of different shapes and designs for a random display or stick to a single shape repeated over and again for more regimented luxury.

Mirrors can become expensive quickly, but don’t feel you have to spend your life savings on them. You can always replace a cheap mirror with something more expensive later down the line.

Choose a Color Scheme

Neutrals mixed with shiny metallics and simple lines will always look luxurious, especially if you have lots of fine crafted furniture to display. Natural materials like wood and stone should inform your color scheme and bring together all the elements you use to decorate your space.

Creams are much warmer than whites, but greys and blacks should not be underestimated. There are plenty of warm grey shades to choose from and all can be used to create calming spaces. Grey is growing in popularity as a bedroom color because it is not as bright as white but is still clean and neutral. Add soft cushions and a mixture of textiles to create a beautiful sleeping space.

A Luxury Bathroom

Bathrooms always feel like the lynchpin that hold a theme or feel together. Put simply, if your bathroom doesn’t feel luxurious, the whole house won’t either. Tiles can be incredibly expensive but they aren’t the main luxury of a bathroom. Simple white tiles that are well looked after will look just as lovely as a specially made mosaic.

Choose your fixtures from one source to give a sense of continuity to the room. Round shapes and curves will keep your eye moving around the room naturally, whereas squared edges will define a space. Both of these features have their own merit but are best not mixed.

If you have a particularly small bathroom, having it converted into a wet room will make the most of the space by removing barriers such as a bath or shower door. Add in a large and luxurious shower head to really make the room appeal to everyone and consider adding a plant to improve the air quality in there. Honestly – it makes a difference!

A Luxury Kitchen

Once your bathroom is luxurious, the next room to tackle is the kitchen. A small kitchen that has lots of things left out on the surfaces is difficult to move around and certainly doesn’t feel luxurious. In this room, how you use your space will really inform the way you design it.

Adding storage is the best thing you can do with a chaotic kitchen. A seamless line of cupboards that reach right up to the ceiling will give you lots of room to hide away our kitchen gadgets when you aren’t using them. Consider the type of materials you want to use whether you choose wooden doors and a stone worktop of if you go for cheaper but brighter colored doors instead. Ask for sample to take home look at in different combinations before your take the plunge and get a whole new room.

Luxurious Lighting

If lighting luxury just means chandeliers to you, then you are in for a really pleasant surprise! In fact, luxury light can be achieved with simple, clean design that is carefully and precisely fitted to accent your room.

Use up lighters to show off the art on your walls or create interesting shadows. Try using a variety of different lights to create lots of different feels in your room. For example, a party might be well lit with some funky lamps but a romantic night in would be better served with fairy lights and candles. If you don’t get a lot of natural light and need to keep your lights on through the day, choose LED bulbs for better efficiency as they will be much cheaper in the long run.

With these 5 tips, your home will quickly feel more luxurious than ever. There are lots of things you could do that aren’t even mentioned here like start collecting themed art works or splash out on luxury fabrics to reupholster your furniture for a unique look.

Building up an interior design concept can take years and that is the fun of home marking for most people. Rather than getting everything done in a matter of days, shop around and make plans for when you can afford the best. Keep a book of ideas that you come across and compare different styles before you start making any changes.

As modern design is so fast moving, it is wise to stick to timeless classics for your larger or more expensive pieces and accessorize around them to create your own own style. Adding luxurious touches doesn’t have to be expensive but if you can afford something that is timeless and well made, it is certainly worth the extra spend. Go on – you deserve it!
