Fail-Safe Christmas Gift Ideas For The Colour-Loving Person In Your Life!

Christmas Countdown

Christmas makes us think of long lunches with the family around the table, summer holidays, and (hopefully!) warm weather. The not-so-fun part is the dreaded present shopping you have to get through before the celebrations begin…

Luckily, our annual Christmas Countdown online shopping event is back to help you through, and Melbourne homewares brand Kip&Co is offering TDF readers 15% off their entire range of colourful tableware, linen, ceramics, and accessories until Sunday 20 November!

Their summery pieces make for a fabulous gift, so see our favourites below and don’t forget to enter the code TDFCHRISTMAS at checkout!

Rudolph Candle

Kip&Co / $49

Monday 7th November 2022

We can always count on Kip&Co to bring us delightful homewares all year round, but this season they’ve really nailed the summery aesthetic of a classic, relaxed Australian Christmas!

Their tableware, linens, loungewear, and accessories offer great gifting ideas for anyone in your life who shares in the brand’s love of colour and pattern – even more so if they’re big on entertaining!

We’ve got our eye on the Hat Trick Woven Stripe Linen Tablecloth and the matching 6 Piece Napkin Set, sporting a multi-coloured stripe pattern that’s the perfect base to create a beautiful tablescape.

If you’re feeling extra thoughtful, package these with the sea-blue tones of the Ocean Swirl Enamel Oval Platter and the Bejewelled Cutlery to give them the ultimate dinner party set up. Plus, the Long Lunch Red Water Jug from Kip&Co’s collaboration with Robert Gordon is another bright piece that they can use for cocktails. It also doubles as a great vase!

Other goodies like the Desert Rose Velvet Eye Mask and the perfectly festive Rudolph Candle (with Christmas-inspired notes of ginger, milk, butter and maple!) make for affordable stocking stuffers, or an ideal KK gift that they’ll actually use.

You can even forego the annoyance of wrapping paper and pop them inside Kip&Co’s own adorable Christmas Harlequin Velvet Stocking!

And for anyone who might be in need of a little self-care as the year comes to a close, the Romans Embossed Terry Bath Robe is a Kip&Co staff favourite thanks to its plush, comfy fabric designed for all-day lounging. And with 15% off store-wide, we may or may not be buying some pieces for ourselves…

Kip&Co Christmas Countdown offer:

15% off Kip&Co online. Not in conjunction with any other offer or Kip&Co Dream Team Loyalty Points. Ends Sunday 20 November, 11.59pm AEST.
