  • Picking The Perfect Christmas Present


    Giving presents can be a pretty stressful experience (much more so than receiving them). There’s an innate pressure to find the most wonderful and thoughtful gift which shows friends or family how amazingly well you know them (or not as sometimes the case may be). You may not think of OKA initially for Christmas gifts, but delve a little deeper, and you’ll find we have a vast selection of small home accessories that make perfect presents.

     

    FOR HER

    Think outside the (chocolate) box this year, and opt for something a little bit different. These pretty golden Lama Offering Bowls would look fabulous displayed in size order on a console table or dresser, but they could also be dotted around the house to hold those small bits and bobs that don’t seem to have a home! Room fragrances always make great gifts for a bathroom or hallway, but show you’ve thought about the recipient’s colour scheme by pairing it with a stunning Glass Fragrance Diffuser Holder. Beautiful storage is also a welcome gift; if you know someone who loves to keep old letters, tickets and other little pieces with sentimental value, then a lockable Faux Shagreen Memory Box is the perfect present. With the entertaining season upon us, these elegant Casablanca Cocktail Glasses will definitely come in useful (they could even be used for desserts), but if her drink of choice is less Long Island Iced Tea, more herbal tea, then our dainty glass Cinderella Teapot and Ghost Cups are a fabulous alternative to traditional ceramic ones.

    FOR HIM

    We admit it: we’re often guilty of reverting to type when it comes to buying for men, lost in an infinite gift giving cycle of socks, slippers and cologne (all of which are never worn). In our experience, bar accessories are always well received, as they’re not normally a gift you’d buy for yourself but will always come in useful. Don’t reserve them for special occasions; this Bone Ice Bucket, Corkscrew and Bottle Opener and pretty Sorento Wine Glasses are robust enough for everyday use. For the tea lover or coffee connoisseur, how about an individual My Teapot and Cup or a set of striped Espresso Cups? Those not keen on hot drinks can keep out the chill with this handsome houndstooth tweed woollen blend throw, given a modern twist with its colourful velvet edging.

    FOR PETS

    How could we forget our pets when selecting gifts for our nearest and dearest? They are reasonably easy to buy for (although we have met a few fussy felines and choosy canines) and always grateful for any gift (often the cardboard box their present came in!). If a new bed is in order, then our Bolster Faux Fur Dog Bed with super deluxe faux fur inners and faux suede outer will satisfy even the most pampered pet. To protect sofas and beds from paws, claws and moulting fur, a Faux Fur Throw is a stylish (not to mention extremely soft) covering. You’ll be very pleased to hear that these throws are machine washable too, so keeping them pristine is easy. For homes that would like a pet but don’t have the time or space, then this Sleeping Greyhound is the ideal alternative!

    FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE PERSON

    There’s always that one particular person who makes present buying a slightly more arduous task than it should be. You spend hours thinking of an original and thoughtful gift, and come the big unveiling, their face says it all. We’ve scoured our gift selection for a few key pieces that we think they will a) definitely not already own and b) genuinely like (we hope). Consider a unique and unusual objet d’art for their home such as these Wooden Discuses, Trompette Vase or these charming hand-painted figurines. One of our most popular home accessories, the Giant Glass Paperweight could be used as a breathtaking table centrepiece, but also on a desk or as a doorstop (trust us, it’s very heavy). Sadly, if all else fails, you’ve no option but to surrender your gift finding mission and make everyone happy by choosing OKA gift vouchers instead.
