For those who love spending time in their nest, what better idea than a gift for the home? Here are our proposals, which range from elegant retro-style play sets to the evergreen accessories proposed for this Christmas in a special edition

If chosen with care, Christmas gifts for the home are a passe-partout capable of warming the heart, bringing satisfaction to even the most fussy: elements which, positioned in right, they know how to warm up the environment by telling a little about the personality of those who live there.

Be careful, therefore, to carefully consider at least one nuance of the people you are giving them to: if they are true design lovers who love icons, surprise them with the limited editions of the season with a pop declination; if they are passionate about rituals and fragrances, think of them by choosing an elegant incense burner from natural materials; if they love spending time with family and friends, they might appreciate refined playsets with precious details.

Considering different tastes and inclinations, we have selected for you a collection of Christmas gift proposals for the home which we will keep constantly updated until Christmas Day 2023.
