With summer around the corner, many of us will be looking forward to a busy schedule of social events during the months to come. From baby showers, to hen-parties and birthdays – the list is endless.
And if you’re going over to someone’s house to celebrate, there’s always the question of what to bring them and from where. Showing your host some appreciation is always good etiquette – and Toons Carpet & Furniture LTD in Derbyshire is full of quirky and on-trend homeware items as well as greeting cards that could make the perfect gift this season.
From elegant lamps to modern artwork, vintage mirrors, and other ornaments, there’s something to fit everyone’s taste and even their price point. There are also gift cards available if you’re looking to cover the cost of a larger piece of furniture or knock down the price on a big purchase.
Toons Carpet & Furniture Ltd’s impressive showroom in Castle Gresley has everything you could possibly need for the modern home, including sofas, flooring, beds and lighting. Customers can take advantage of regular discounts for clearance items, as well as Toons’ free measuring service.
The store offers assembly for any purchased items too, and an order-in-store service for products featured online via the Toons website. So if you’re still struggling with some home gift ideas for this summer, take a look at our inspirational list below.
1. Majestic lamps
Toons’ lighting department is known to be one of the largest in the local area. With everything from ornate lampshades, to minimalist lighting and sparkling chandeliers – the furniture outlet has it all.
Lighting is a vital backdrop for setting the mood during any family occasion, or an intimate dinner date at home with a loved one. And a new floor lamp or elegant lantern can change a room entirely.
This James LED Table Lamp in clear chrome could make a great moving in present for a loved one. Or if your friend or family member prefers a more classic touch, why not try gifting them with a stained glass lamp or an antique copper floor light instead?
2. Outdoor furniture
As the days slowly get warmer, many homeowners will be looking to replenish their outdoor furniture or purchase something new for that garden party they’re planning to throw. Popular choices for this season include egg chairs, daybeds and parasols.
This Holly Hanging Cocoon Chair from Toons is on sale now – and the ideal place for both adults and kids to chill out in the garden after a long day. Or you can gift this fantastic Hygrove Relaxer Chair – great for hanging outing with a neighbour after dinner, and sipping a glass of fizz while you discuss your holiday plans.
3. Dazzling mirrors
Mirrors never go out of style, and they’re a brilliant addition to any area of the home for making spaces look bigger, or reflecting extra light to brighten up a room. Toons offers both indoor mirrors and outdoor ornate mirrors, in mesmerizing vintage and arch frame styles.
4. Striking artwork
A colourful print or painting makes an eye-catching addition to any living room or hallway. And Toons Furnishers isn’t shy of stocking its own unique patterns and artistic designs for purchase.
A piece of artwork is a tasteful gift option for thanking a friend or family member for their hospitality, and without breaking the bank too. Whether the person you’re gifting has taste in abstract expressionism or prefers timeless sketches, there’s something to suit everyone, such as this A Real Beauty portrait for under £100.
5. Stylish accessories
Ornaments and accessories often provide the finishing touch to a room, yet they can make a house feel more like a home instantly. Items such as cushions, throws and stools may seem like a quirky gift choice at first, but they’re only growing in demand at Toons.
The store’s stuffed animal doorstop and footstool range has been a hit with many customers, providing a great way to add a fun feeling to a home. There are animals such as pigs, dogs and bears to choose from – making the ideal gift for a playroom or nursery.
For customers preferring a more traditional type of gift, geometric print cushion covers and throws are also a popular choice.
