 Sustainable Blankets and Throws

Luks Linen Cotton and Bamboo Peshtemal

Throws and blankets are the ultimate cosy homeware gift – perfect for movie marathons and for some much needed couch snuggling!

Add an artisan touch to your home with the luxurious woven Pom Pom throw, hand finished with a twisted, knotted fringe and black tassel detail.

In earthy tones of warm grey and ecru this natural, heavyweight cotton blanket will complement any neutral scheme.

The versatile and stylish Nil peshtemal can be used as a throw, scarf, wrap, sarong, or even as a towel or knotted bag!

The Ela is a beautiful, slightly thicker mustard throw woven in a jacquard pattern. It’s perfect for winter.

This unique baby blanket is called Piha, which means garden or farmyard in Finnish; it features original illustrations by British artist Nick Fusedale.

The Idil peshtemal featured above a blend of bamboo and cotton for a truly soft snuggle.

Long Lasting Bed Linens & Cushions

Finlayson Jesus Single Duvet & Pillowcase Set

While they may not seem like a flashy homeware gift, you shouldn’t overlook long lasting, ethical bed linens and cushions. Linens are a wonderful gift that show you care about the quality of your recipient’s sleep.

The double duvet and pillowcase set shown above is made from strong, soft linen and is guaranteed for 50 years.

After something a little more feminine? This beautiful linen bedding comes in a soft blush pink.

The Damla is our most popular throw – handwoven in the Turkish style using 100% organic cotton, this is the softest blanket they will ever receive.

The kids deserve a little homeware flair too – they’ll love one of these adorable pillows featuring fun animal prints!

This beautiful handmade wool cushion cover comes in a variety of designs, so you can match it to their taste.

 Long Lasting Lighting & Audio


These lasting lighting and audio products are perhaps slightly more practical, but they’re also some of the most talked about homeware gifts on our site. We bet the recipient can’t guess how long our light bulbs last!

Wanda may look like your regular incandescent bulb, but she comes packing 25,000 hours of life thanks to her dimmable LED filament technology.

This LED light bulb is the world's first designer low energy bulb and promises a lifetime of 20,000 hours. Why not pick up a beautiful pendant fitting to go along with it?

The unique design of the Plumen 003 light bulb cleverly simulates the warm, flattering glow of candlelight with the practical benefits of a spotlight, with the added benefit of being able to run for 10,000 hours. 

Are they an audiophile or a frequent festival goer? They’ll fall for this portable bluetooth speaker boasting 100 hours of battery life.

Handwoven, Ethical Rugs

Muna Home - Marinara Due Handwoven Geometric Rug

Rugs can liven up any dull space with a touch of elegance and really show off the homeowner’s individuality. Our handwoven rugs make a unique and ethical homeware gift and are the perfect housewarming treat.

This unique leather rug is made using interlocking offcuts of top-quality upcycled materials and can be built to accommodate any size room.

The Felce is inspired by nature. Its contemporary design is made with a nuno-felting technique – a mix of traditional wet felting and needle felting.

One of our most popular homeware gifts, this ethical rug features a simple geometric cross pattern.

This handwoven rug is made from 100% wool with a simple, yet elegant geometric design that would suit any space.

Bird lovers will adore the delicate design of the Passero rug, which features a sparrow and blossoming branches. 

Built-for-life Furniture

Family W Shaker Stool Solid Oak

The holidays got you feeling extra generous? Help them avoid the frustration of flat-pack furniture and get them a classic, well-made piece that will last their entire life.

Recipient a bit of a DIY-er? Never fear! This DIY version of the Shaker Stool allows them to assemble their own furniture at home.

If their home is on the smaller side, they’ll love the space-saving design of this slim cabinet.

The beautiful stool pictured above is handmade from solid oak wood and comes in a variety of colours to suit any homeowner’s personality.

If an entire table is a bit hefty for gifting, you can't go wrong with an elegant linen tablecloth, in practical navy blue.
