Christmas Gift Guide - LinenBarn

Christmas Gift Guide - LinenBarn

One of the many joys of Christmas is treating those you love to a special gift that they’ll treasure. Some people say that gifts should be luxurious rather than practical, but there’s no need to compromise when you get that special someone a gift made of linen. 

With LinenBarn’s linen collection, what you’ll find are lots of useful items that happen to be made using one of the most sumptuous materials around. Eco-friendly, easy to care for, breathable, long-lasting and surprisingly soft, it’s suited to a wide range of purposes, which means you can easily find the perfect linen gift for even the trickiest recipients.

We’ve compiled a Christmas gift guide full of ideas that will make Christmas merry and bright for everyone on your list.

Gifts For Party Hosts

A bottle of wine is always a nice gesture, but why not give the party host on your list something they can use time and time again?

Every dinner and party host needs a good apron to protect their outfit from those annoying spills and splashes, and our Moss Green Linen Bib Apron is our top choice for Christmas thanks to its forest green shade. Soft and highly protective, it ties up easily so it can adjust to any size, and its deep pockets make it highly practical. As an added bonus, the dark colour also hides stains!

Another great gift for someone who loves to entertain is a gorgeous linen tea towel. Our White Linen Tea Towel with Milk White Linen Lace is elegant and rustic all at the same time, making it suitable to a range of décor styles, and we have several other neutral tea towels as well.

If you really want to impress, consider something from our linen tableware collection. Our Moss Green Linen Tablecloth “Enchanted Forest” is a showstopper that will look good no matter how they dress it, or you could go with a more versatile tablecloth shade like white or beige. For something similar with a lower price tag, a linen table runner is a great way to introduce your favourite party host to the wonders of linen tableware, or you could opt for a set of our premium linen napkins to provide the perfect finish touch to their table setting.

Gifts For Beach Lovers

For the person on your list who can’t seem to get enough of the beach, we’ve got some great linen items that can make their time at the shore feel like even more of a treat than usual.

Our Linen Resort Towels with Ruffles are generously sized, durable and stylish – and did we mention they come with their own lightweight carrying bag? Available in Dusty Rose, White and Light Blue, this is something that is sure to get plenty of use and love ­– and more than a few admiring glances from other beachgoers.

Another great beach item in our collection is our Linen Tote Bag, which is lightweight and perfect for bringing all their essentials to the beach. We like the Pastel Coral bag for a true beachy vibe or match the ocean with the Light Blue version. It’s also available in Pinstripes, Dusty Rose and White.

Finally, our Linen Cushion Covers can help them bring that beachy vibe home. Perfect for a sofa, bed, or patio furniture, these stunning covers come in a range of designs so there’s something for everyone!

Cosy Bedroom Gifts

Most of the home-related gifts people give tend to be geared toward the living room, dining room and kitchen. While there’s nothing wrong with that, thinking outside the box a little can help you find a gift that no one else will buy them this year.

In that spirit, our linen bedding is a true splurge that they’re sure to treasure. If you know the recipient well, be bold and choose a quilt cover set for them; natural beige and optical white sets are good neutral options. Otherwise, play it safe with some linen sheets. They’re natural and breathable, and their temperature-regulating properties mean that they’ll get a good night’s sleep, night after night – which may well be the best gift of all!

Gifts Under $55

Shopping on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t get high-quality linen gifts. At LinenBarn, we have plenty of great items under $55 that are still luxurious and sure to be well-received.

If someone on your list swears, they already have everything they need, you might just be able to prove them wrong with a linen bread bag. These bags are perfect for keeping bread fresh while letting it breathe, and their antibacterial and antimicrobial properties paired with 100% certified European flax linen mean your loved one won’t have to worry about exposing their bread to any toxins while storing it. We like the Rustic White version for gifts since it goes with everything, but our Rustic Natural bag is another good neutral choice.

You might also consider our Linen Waist Aprons, a more compact version of our full aprons with handy pockets that comes in a range of shades. Our table runners are also very affordable; the Moss Green runner could well earn pride of place on the recipient’s holiday table! Our linen placemats are another excellent table-setting choice for shoppers on a budget.
