We know that change is as good as a holiday, so why not double-up on the festive fever (and its blissful soul-food effect) by surprising your loved ones with exactly that... change (that lasts).

Yes, it’s great to break away from the day-to-day, but changing your day-to-day is better because its effects will last long after the tinsel and fairy lights came down. So this year, steer clear of run of the mill stocking stuffers – spoil your loved ones with changes to their homes, or if you’re really feeling festive, a mini home makeover.

A touch of festive flair

From simple things like gifting a welcome home mat, a floral throw, or a summer scented diffuser, to a new set of towels – a touch of colour or pop of personality could all do wonder to the home. But remember not to shop for yourself (as we so often tend to do) – when scouring the homeware isle for inspiration, ensure you keep the décor and style of the lucky recipient as a central focus. 

Fabulously festive

Take the first step in an overdue DIY project that you know your loved one moved to the bottom of the priority pile. For instance, gift the power of a restored family patio set by packaging sand paper to remove the rough edges, cloths to clear any dust and grime, Dulux Woodgard to ensure protection against the elements, with brushes and aprons to get the job done.

Full on festive

Collaborate with the lucky gift-getter, and work on a room makeover. Make sure to put a mood board together with key statement pieces, textures, and colour combinations to ensure all elements come together beautifully – bearing in mind the look-and-feel and the function of the room.

Start off by flipping through décor magazines, or scroll through Pinterest. And if you’re particularly tickled by the notion of leading the style-pack, visit the Dulux website to find inspiration and see how the 2019 colour of the year, Creme Brulee could bring soothing cosiness or vibrancy to the space.

Whatever your spirit level on the festive-meter, surprise your loved one with a gift they least expect and will treasure daily – setting a stylish home base to grab hold of all the new year has in store.
