Two Months ‘til Christmas: Furniture Gifts for Everyone On Your List

There’s two months ‘til Christmas — for some people, it’s not time to even begin thinking about the holiday season. For others, you’ve already made your list and checked it twice. 

Either way, if you’re hoping to receive some new furniture or home decor for Christmas, it’s time to start dropping hints, and if you’re planning to give a loved one a new sofa or rug, now’s the time to begin getting your gifting sorted. 

Buying furniture gifts isn’t exactly like purchasing other types of presents, but with our first gift guide of the season we can make choosing the perfect gift an easy thing to check off your Christmas to-do list. 

Read on for our top tips on choosing the right furniture gifts, getting your presents ready in time, and figuring out how to make your Christmas special with great options for Corcoran’s.

Plan in advance for furniture gifts

Furniture is not something that can usually be picked up as a last minute gift for a number of reasons. First of all, furniture tends to be a big-budget purchase, so you want to make sure you’re getting your giftee exactly what they want. 

This may be a case where a surprise isn’t the best option and you’ll have a conversation with the recipient about the perfect piece for their home. Or you may need to spend some time gathering clues to what your loved one wants and getting advice from our furniture experts to narrow things down to the ideal gift. Regardless, don’t wait until the last minute to decide you want to give furniture gifts this year. 

There are also logistics to think about. If you’re buying someone a new couch, you can’t just rock up with it gift-wrapped in a box or put it under the Christmas tree. You will probably need to get it delivered to yourself or your recipient’s house, and that means looking at lead times and delivery schedules. 

It’s a good idea to shop offers that are in-stock for quick delivery, either in-store or online, but if there’s something else you’ve got your eye on you can always talk to our team about delivery timelines to be sure you get your gifts in plenty of time for Christmas. 

Choosing the right gifts 

Because furniture gifts are so large — both in importance in the home and in the budget they require — most people reserve this type of present for the people they’re closest to. This Christmas, you might be thinking of buying a new dining table for your spouse, or a new recliner for your grandfather. Furniture represents comfort and home, making it a special gift for the most special people in your life. 

However, if you’re looking for furniture gifts for everyone on your shopping list, there are plenty of fantastic options to suit all your loved ones. For a simple and appealing gift idea, home decor accessories are a classic. Cushions, rugs, wall art, and more — you can find accessories to suit your gifting needs and budget to fit easily into any decor style. 

One benefit of gifting decor and accessories is that they are easy to slot into a room. While it may feel intimidating to buy a large furniture item unless you’re 100% sure it’s exactly the one your recipient wants, a lovely throw or decorative lamp can accent almost any space with ease. 

Finally, you can give anyone on your list the gift of choice with a gift voucher. While some people aren’t a fan of gift vouchers, believing them to be impersonal compared to physical gifts, furniture and home decor preferences can be so personal that many people appreciate being able to pick them out for themselves. 

If you’d like to add that extra personal touch, you might even give a gift voucher and then arrange a shopping trip for you and your loved one to choose their furniture gifts together. Incorporating quality time into your gift can make it a really special option for the holiday season. 

A digital gift voucher is also ideal for someone who you won’t see this holiday season, because you can send it directly to their email. So if you’re living far away, or if you’re buying a gift for someone anywhere in Ireland, a digital voucher is a convenient alternative to physical furniture gifts.
