The Australian Gift and Homewares Association reports that the homeware industry in Aus is currently pulling in around $20bn every year, making it a hugely profitable and successful area of businesses. This is partly due to the rise in the number of people opting to give homeware as presents to their loved ones, whether at home or abroad. From kitchen accessories to novelty office items, and from luxurious plush furnishings to gadgets that can be used around the home, giving a loved one something that will help feather their nest is one of the best ways to show them that you care.
Giving homeware as a gift is a great option for those who are stuck for ideas when looking for a present for their loved one. Rather than getting them a novelty item that they will use for a little while before throwing away, or simply opting for the generic flowers, chocolates, socks or champagne, giving a gift they can display and use in their home is useful and practical, whilst still showing a thoughtful touch. We have a hugely popular range of homeware items in stock, all of which make excellent gift items for friends and family.
For ladies that love their household to smell luxuriously fragrant, candles are the perfect gift; specifically a Black Milk set of soy wax candles, or one of their scented oil diffusers, in French pear, sweet pea or black fig. These luxury scented products are a wonderful gift for women who love welcoming their family and their guests into a home that smells beautiful. The Black Milk Christmas Spice candle is a particular favourite for women whose birthdays fall between October and December, and with its warming blend of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla bean, it is sure to make any home feel like Christmas.
Many people like to give their homes a slightly retro touch, taking them back to their youth and enjoying a taste of nostalgia. Record Coasters from Australian Gifts Online make a perfect gift for a couple who loved their music in the 80s, and miss the days of poodle perms and power shoulders. The coasters come in a set of four and will help to put a vintage spin on any evening with guests or simply enjoying a few drinks with loved ones.
For the man who has an office in his home and spends the day chained to the desk as he crunches numbers and files invoices, a homeware gift for his office would be the perfect way to make his day that little bit easier. From somewhere to stand his smartphone to a vintage telephone that will be the focal point of his desk, there are numerous ways in which an office can be spruced up with homeware gifts from Australian Gifts Online.
