England 16/12/2012- This year practical gifts are definitely the ones that are flying off the shelves
Linens Direct, like most retailers find that Christmas is their busiest period of the year. They sell more over Christmas than they do at any time of the year. People love to give gifts that have a practical use as well as being personal to the person the gift is being given to. This is especially the case over the past few years. People do not have as much spare cash as they once had, so they want the gifts they can afford to give to really count.
For firms who sell household goods this has been good news. It means people are keen to buy from them over the Christmas season.
A towel bale in the colour of a person’s cloakroom or bathroom makes a beautiful gift. It is a gift that the person receiving it will get many years of use from.
Elderly relatives especially appreciate this kind of gift. Many live on very tight budgets, so finding the money to keep their home decor up to date and fresh is a big struggle. A new set of curtains for the living room is a very welcome gift indeed.
New cushions are another great gift. They brighten up a room as well as having a practical use. The same is true of throws and blankets. They can cover a worn sofa when people drop by for a visit, but also double up as a way to stay warm.
Duvets make very good Christmas gifts. Increasingly, in the UK, people are struggling to pay their fuel bills. Turning the heating down a notch is something more families are doing, but to do this most families need to buy extra bedding. Buying three or four new duvets can work out quite expensive, so it is surprising how many people appreciate a new duvet as a gift.
Linen gifts for children
Kids love poncho towels, especially towels that are themed with their favourite TV characters. Themed bedding sets makes the perfect gift for a young child. Even a teenager will appreciate a set of bed linen given as part of a bedroom makeover.
