There’s nothing better than a gift that not only makes you feel good, but gets put to use. The realm of homeware is such a fun one to explore – not only can you play with colour and different degrees of practicality, you can also tailor the vibe of your purchase to the personality of whoever you’re gifting for. How thoughtful of you. Luckily enough, the product selections here at woo have something for everyone.
For the bold and daring among your loved ones, our range of trippy homewares are far from shy. Think brightly-coloured, smiley face cushion covers and eclectic, surrealist prints – you’ll be wanting to visit our friends over at Wavey Casa or Blanc Prints for that. Then again, you can’t beat the simple and elegant option. From neutral, sculpted vases (including some that you can make yourself!) to soothing potted plants, we’ve got everything they’d need to achieve the clean aesthetic.
Discover our curated list of serotonin-spiking homewares designed to uplift, revitalise and transform any living space. We wouldn’t be surprised if you wanted to snap up something for yourself while you’re here…
This playful plate is made from Staffordshire white stoneware and also happens to be hand-thrown and painted from the artist's studio in Kent. Each plate is unique and can be enjoyed hung on the wall as an endearing piece of art or, if you're feeling extra, can absolutely be used as a dinner plate.
KEEP IT CHEEKY
This earthenware glazed pot has been handcrafted in England and can be used as a vase, stationary holder or simply left empty to be appreciated in all its undressed glory. Bottoms up.
For the doers. Let them create their very own perfect homeware: a neutral, minimalist vase finished with a vibrant bouquet of dried flowers. But don’t worry, this kit from Sculpd includes cutout templates, so they can get the hourglass shape just right!
We love a laid-back cushion with a big personality, and this cover is the perfect way to add some visual joy and fun energy to any living space. Best part is, they come in way more designs and colours – there’s one to match any home.
SMILES ALL ROUND
Guaranteed to make you smile; the iconic happy face rug is the perfect piece to sit at the threshold of any room. With a super soft fabric, the half-moon design is a cosy AF treat for your feet. Put this laidback baddie at the door and let the chill vibes flow through every space in the house.
A psychedelic melting pot of complementary colours in lively tones. Add this daring design to any living space to banish the winter blues.
These vases said "the wonkier, the better" - and we couldn't agree more. Made using air-dry clay, they're then hand-painted for a purposefully naive finish. Whether it's a minimal or maximal setting, they're sure to add a healthy dose of personality to any space.
SHOW WHO’S BOSS
A candle and a self-love mantra in one? Yes please. This 3D candle will serve as a daily reminder to embody boss bitch energy!
Need we say any more? We love a laid-back cushion with big personality, and this cover packs a punch.
The Pottery starter bundle comes with all the materials, tools and guidance you'll need to create functional and useable pottery pieces from home. Popular creations include plant and cactus pots, trinket dishes, dried flower vases, animal and body sculptures and everything in between.
THE RUG TO END ALL RUGS
Inject a pop of colour into the living room with this psychedelic rug by Wavey Casa. Whether they’re a rainbow raver by nature or just looking for a standout trippy addition to mix up their aesthetic, this rug is the ideal choice.
