Practical Gifts

The Contemporary Home Company is the first place to come to when you're looking for the most original gift ideas. Fun and practical gifts are available to order today from our online store.

We have superb selection of items such as stationery, crafts and practical gifts for around the home. You will also find a choice of seasonal products, including the perfect solutions for storing all those bits and pieces that you need for special days of the year. Keep your giftwrap, tape, scissors and tags together in one handy Gift Wrap Storage Bag, with a storage for rolls of giftwrap and pockets to accommodate all those other essentials.

The Contemporary Home has a wide range of different gift ideas, but perhaps one of our most unique is the My Life Story - A Lifetime Of Memories book. This incredible book has been designed to record your life, the people, the places and the adventures. There is far more to this book than a standard journal; designed to work as a 100 year diary, you can not only record each day with your thoughts and experiences, but your aspirations and ambitions.

The My Life Story book can capture all facets of your life, and includes a map of the world and the human body. This also makes a great gift from birth, as parents can fill it in for those first steps. You can add photos, cuttings and all those bits and pieces that you collect in life, as well as making a list of your skills and qualifications. This superb book will be a best friend and constant companion for life.

For a rewarding playtime - kids will love our fun practical gifts

Practical gifts for the kitchen are always incredibly popular, especially those that children can enjoy too. Convenient and easy to use, the classic recipe file has been given a fun twist, with our Children's Flip Top Recipe File. Encouraging budding young chefs, this recipe file is divided into two sections for savoury and sweet recipes, and comes with several blank cards so that brand new ideas for dishes can be written out. The Children's Flip Top Recipe File is supplied with wipe-clean plastic wallets for loose recipes, a wipe-clean stand and a set of fun stickers.

Another great idea for children are our arts and craft kits. The practical gifts at The Contemporary Home include an assortment of craft kits based on the Ladybird books that we read as children. You bring some of that golden age of innocence to the present day, as each tin features a graphic based on those books. These practical gift collections will keep your children busy on those rainy afternoons.

Make The Contemporary Home the place to come to when thinking of unusual, high quality practical gifts. We have gifts to suit all ages, as well as budgets. Come and take a look at our present ideas for your family and friends at our online store.
