  • Personalised Gifts for Dad

    With Father's Day fast approaching we have some great Personalised Gifts for Dad. Whether your Dad fancies himself as a bit of a Bear Grylls adventurer type or is more at home sipping  a wee dram with his slippers on, we have him covered. Most of our Father's Day gifts can be personalised with your own message, name or even just initials, which just makes it that bit more special.

    1. BBQ King Dad - we have several types of  BBQ tool sets and they can all be engraved, for the Dad who loves his BBQ's. We can put your own message on the steel with up to 40 characters.

  • September News and Christmas Gift Ideas

    HB-shortlist

    September has been a very busy month at Idyll Home!

    We have been shortlisted by House Beautiful Magazine in their "Best Breakthrough Business" category and visited the trade shows Top Drawer/Home and Autumn Fair, on the hunt for great Christmas gift ideas for Idyll Home. Being shortlisted by House Beautiful Magazine is very exciting. It's wonderful to be recognised for all our efforts over the last few years within the industry. House Beautiful have showcased a lot of our home accessories in their editorial shoots over the last year so fingers crossed they will vote for us in November.

    It is always interesting but slightly overwhelming at the trade shows seeing so many new products in one place and sifting through to find the right ones for Idyll Home. Then it is straight to work putting all the new products on the website in time for the mad run up to Christmas. Here a few of my favourite new gifts for her:

    Love these new faux fur pom slippers from Ruby and Ed - they add a bit  of glamour to the humble slipper - I would be happy with these as a Christmas gift!

    Beautiful new jewellery was spotted at Top Drawer, I couldn't help but fall in love with these simple and timeless pieces from St Martins graduate Hannah at Epanoui

     

    Not forgetting gifts for men, we have some fun laptop and iPad covers, and our ever popular sheepskin slippers are always a hit.

    These sweet little money boxes by Rob Ryan make beautiful gifts for children they come in a beautifully presented gift box - just adorable. The Trousselier range of soft toys and musical soft toys are still some of my favourite out there, and they come in beautiful gift boxes too.
