Christmas gifts for the home

Christmas gift ideas for the home, including coffee machines, blenders and vacs - but not every gift is good enough to be a Which? Best Buy

A Best Buy gift for the home will go down well with friends or family, but some of the products you’ll see for sale this Christmas are best avoided.

We’ve rounded up some of the most popular products you’ll see advertised, which includes brands such as Nutribullet, Delonghi and Dyson. Make sure you read the full reviews to guarantee goodwill after Boxing Day.

Coffee machines

If you’re buying a coffee machine for someone for Christmas, it’s in your best interest to get a good one – you’ll benefit the next time you pop round.

We love damn fine coffee and have no time for the machines that can only make a thin, lukewarm brew, which is why we’ve pulled together the top five best espresso machines.

Bullet blenders

These little blenders convert into a travel mug, which makes them a great gift for busy smoothie fans. The best are quick, quiet, easy to clean and can pulvarise just about anything.

Find out if the Nutribullet is worth the hype or if a cheaper machine is better – see our Nutribullet and other bullet blender reviews.

Blenders

If you want to blend more than a mug full, then you need a full-sized blender. We’ve found blenders that create smooth food quickly and quietly, while others are noisy, leave ingredients stuck to the sides and are a pain to clean.

So to help you avoid the duds, find out which five blenders impressed us in our tests – one only costs around £30. See the best blenders.

Handheld vacs for the car

A handheld vac is the perfect gift for someone who wants to keep their car pristine. These little vacs do a great job at cleaning up, provided you buy the right one. The best we’ve tested clean twice as fast as the worst, plus their batteries last a decent amount of time.

Read our handheld vac reviews to see which we’re talking about.

Spiralizers

These handy gadgets turn fresh veg into noodles and are this year’s top pick for anyone who’s into healthy eating. We tried out a range of the top-selling models, including Hemsley and Hemsley and Lakeland, to reveal which make consistent, long noodles and which chuck out the vegetable scraps.
