Christmas is one of the most special times of the year, and buying gifts for friends, family members, and our special loved ones can be challenging but a lot of fun too.
Finding the right shabby chic Christmas gifts for your loved ones is a great way to bring some style to the celebrations and give people gifts that are unique and memorable.
Giving gifts like these shows a lot of thought and preparation has gone into your Christmas gifts, and how important your loved ones are to you.
There are a number of shabby chic Christmas gifts available, with options to suit every member of a family. Even young children can get a chic gift, like a classic toy or custom jigsaw puzzle. Here is a quick list of five shabby chic Christmas gift ideas that will hopefully help you find the right gifts for your friends and family this year.
Vintage Candle Lanterns
Candles are a great way to bring some warmth and light to Christmas time, and a vintage-style candle lantern is a perfect way to set the mood on a winter evening. There are many different styles of candle lantern available, but cast-iron and wrought-iron lanterns seem to offer the best shabby chic look on the market.
Old-Style Toiletries and Wash Items
People will often receive toiletries as Christmas gifts, so why not mix things up by giving someone a vintage-looking set of toiletries or accessories. A traditional shaving set with a brush, soap dish and razor is a great shabby chic gift for a man, and you can buy a vintage soap bar brand online to complete the gift.
Antique Jewellery Boxes or Trinket Trays
A kitschy jewellery box is a great gift for a woman. You can even fill it will some quirky but chic costume jewellery to give the gift and extra wow factor. Small trays for rings, earrings, and bracelets are also a good gift for a lady and work well as a Christmas stocking filler.
A Vintage Styled Candelabra for the Dining Table
A classic looking candelabra is a great Christmas gift for friends and doesn’t have to be an expensive antique to get the look you are going for. There are many reproductions available online that have a shabby chic look, and many are made from re-purposed materials like cast-iron pipework.
Create and Craft Something Special Yourself
A great way to give someone a shabby chic Christmas gift is to create and craft something unique and just for them from your own design. You can make something simple and thoughtful for someone, like a Christmas-style flower arrangement in a vase made from a re-purposed watering can or something larger like a wine-rack made from an old bookshelf or a reclaimed railway sleeper.
Getting the right gifts for all the family and your friends can be very time consuming, and sometimes no matter how hard you try you can be left rushing at the last minute to get a gift for everyone.
You can save yourself a lot of stress and give gifts that have some style and purpose by planning ahead and getting your loved ones a shabby chic Christmas gift.
