Home decor gifts and more: Corcoran’s one month ‘til Christmas gift guide

There’s only one month ‘til Christmas, so if you haven’t started shopping yet, it’s time to get moving and find the perfect home decor gifts for everyone on your list. 

Last month, we gave you tips on planning in advance for furniture gifts (including scheduling delivery and other logistics), so this month let’s talk about those short-notice presents that you can sort quickly and easily to take the stress out of the season! 

Don’t delay on larger gift decisions

Most suppliers have a ‘Christmas cut-off date’ — the last day that they can guarantee your item will be delivered in time for Christmas. For many, that date is drawing nearer, so if you’re thinking of buying furniture or home decor gifts for your loved ones this year, don’t wait! Now is the perfect time to pick out presents for all your family and friends. 

If you have your heart set on buying your loved ones furniture and home decor gifts this year, browsing products that are in-stock for quick delivery will give you a good idea of what’s available for timely ordering. 

And if you’re uncertain whether something will arrive in time for Christmas, or if you want to be sure you can schedule your desired delivery date, get in touch with our team. Our furniture experts will walk you through the process with ease, and if for some reason your item won’t be delivered before the holidays, we’ll help you find the perfect alternative to suit your preferences and make that ideal gift.

Shop local this season

Corcoran’s Furniture is a family-owned, Irish business that can deliver all across Ireland. There are a myriad of reasons to shop local for your home decor gifts this Christmas, and here are just a few: 

Get expert advice from a trusted source. We have been serving our customers in Munster and beyond since 1999. Whether you’re choosing a chair for your cousin or selecting a sofa for your sibling, our team can help you find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. 

Don’t worry about customs or delays. We all know that current events from the past few years have extended shipping times and raised shipping costs. Buying from abroad may be tempting, but shopping local will give you peace of mind that your gifts will arrive in time. 

Find the holiday spirit. Sure, you could do all your Christmas shopping alone in your bedroom with your laptop, but isn’t it so much more fun to visit shops (like our Kerry and Limerick showrooms) with their Christmas decorations on full display? Even if you’re shopping from elsewhere in Ireland and can’t visit us in store, supporting a local business will have you feeling that festive cheer. 

Consider accent accessories

Maybe you know that your mother has been dreaming of a new bed, or that your best friend has their eye on a new dining table, but furniture gifts can be a tricky business if you’re not sure exactly what your giftee wants. Not only does furniture tend to be a big-budget item, but everyone tends to have their own personal preferences for how they want their home interiors to look.

That said, you still have plenty of options for great home decor gifts no matter who you’re shopping for. Accessories are a great choice if you want to buy a home-focused present for someone on your list. They’re small and portable, making them a lovely present to wrap up and put under the tree, and they add a decorative accent that is appealing no matter your recipient’s interior design aesthetic. 

Rugs, cushions, and lamps are our favourite types of accessories to gift, both for their practicality and for their visual beauty. The nice thing about accessories is that they can be used in almost any room in your home, so your recipient is sure to find a place for them. There are also a huge array of styles and colour palettes, so whether your giftee loves modern or traditional looks, bright tones or neutral hues, there is sure to be an accessory to suit. 

Buy bean bag chairs for festive fun

One type of furniture that is always sure to be a hit? Bean bag chairs! A playful addition to any home, the great thing about bean bags is that they are designed to stand out, so you don’t have to worry about matching them to your recipient’s current decorating aesthetic. 

Fun and functional, bean bags and bean bag chairs are a great gift for kids and adults alike, available in a range of sizes, colours, and even animal-themed designs that are as cute as they are cosy. 

Bean bags are also convenient in that they don’t require any assembly, so you don’t need to worry about tools or instructions when you’re getting ready to give your Christmas presents. Shop bean bags and bean bag chairs online for one of our favourite gifting options this holiday season.
