There’s nothing better than giving at Christmas. But most of us would admit that gift buying, particularly at this busy time of year, can become a little stressful.

There’s the over thinkers (of which I am one) not able to make a decision and darting from shop to shop needing to survey the oh so many options.

Then there’s the under thinkers, laid back, no list or strategy, and a last minute mad panic on Christmas Eve.

And even if you fall somewhere in between and have things fairly sussed, there’s always that one person for whom you have no clue what to buy. 

Perhaps we can help.

Elswith is a new homewares brand bursting with inspirational gift ideas. With everything from bicycle baskets to British wool blankets, hampers to wrought iron hangers, we offer beautifully made products that friends and family will be thrilled to receive. We also have a super helpful ‘Under £20’ collection. 

If you are looking for gifts for Him why not consider one of our handsome bottle baskets. Hand woven they offer a stylish way to store and carry drinks in the home, and you can fill with a selection of his favourite bottles for a celebratory tipple this festive season. We have options with 2, 4 and 6 bottle compartments as well as wrought iron bottle openers and wine buckets to complete the perfect gift.

For Her we have an abundance of options from heart themed home décor to beautifully soft wool throws to cosy up in this season.  For the Christmas hostess why not take a look at our slate serving boards and wooden platters, she’ll be delighted to have the table looking tip-top when friends and family come to visit. 

And for those hosting us why not say a really special thankyou and choose from one of our hand woven picnic hampers. Nothing says Christmas quite like a basket brimming with delectable treats, and by picking everything to go inside and packing it makes for a thoughtful standout gift. Once everything inside is eaten up your loved ones are left with a beautiful basket to use around the home.  Choose from various sizes and colours online. We love the two-tone grey, an unusual and eye catching design that is totally on trend. 

And don’t worry, here at Elswith we’re not ones to forget our four legged friends. Spoil your pooch this Christmas with stylish and hard wearing British tweed. We have collars, leads and super cute neckerchiefs as well luxurious tweed cushions. For the ultimate in canine luxury (and because they also look lovely in your home) take a peek at our hand woven wicker pet baskets and we can guarantee if any creature is stirring it won’t be your dog.
