1. For universal cleaning

A Dyson vacuum cleaner is a functional, long-lasting household gift that can be utilised all year round but is particularly effective during the holidays. Our latest illumination technology can reveal dust, glitter, pine needles and crumbs, helping to remove all the byproducts of the festive season and simplify the cleanup process. Employing a motorised wet roller, The Dyson V15s Detect Submarine is engineered to wash up to 110m2 of hard floors with a full tank of water to collect liquids, debris and stains. For dry vacuuming, switch to The Digital Motorbar™ cleaner head with detangling vanes to powerfully extract dust and hair from all floors.

2. For the allergy prone

An air purifier will be a welcome household Christmas gift for a loved one who is prone to allergies. If you know your friend or family member will use an air purifier in an open-plan room, consider gifting the Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool Formaldehyde. This remote-controlled purifying fan has integrated solid-state sensors to analyse air, precisely detect formaldehyde, diagnose and react to ultrafine pollutants. Live results are displayed on the LCD screen and MyDysonTM app to keep residents updated on air quality in the home. Not only does the purifier heat and cool as directed, it also oscillates up to 350 degrees and diverts airflow through the back of the machine to purify the whole room. Give the household gift of a healthier, more comfortable living environment this Christmas.

3. For pet-friendly lifestyles

  • Lend a helping hand to the animal lover in your life with vacuum technology that has been engineered to remove pet hair and pet allergens indoors. Opt for the Dyson Gen5DetectTM stick vacuum for your next household Christmas present, a device which provides powerful suction with Dyson’s longest ever run time of up to 70 minutes.

    The Gen5DetectTM model has been engineered with a Conical brush bar and Hair screw tool attachment that removes and detangles pet hair on sofas, mattresses, stairs, pet beds and other floor surfaces. An invaluable household tool for any pet owner, this stick vacuum is designed for impressive pet hair removal and capturing pet allergens, and also includes a hygienic bin that utilises a ‘point and shoot’ system for easy disposal of pet hair. If you want to personalise this household gift further, consider the Groom tool accessory for adult dogs with medium and long hair to remove dog hair before it is shed onto floors and furniture.

4. For car interiors

If you’re seeking useful household gifts for a loved one this Christmas, expand your gift search to car interiors. Much like living areas in the home, a car interior can attract dust mites, dirt, pet hair and microbiomes that can deteriorate air quality. Given the amount of time spent in cars, it’s important to regularly clean the upholstery and narrow spaces. Streamline interior car care with a selection of Dyson’s many vacuum attachments and accessories like the Stubborn dirt brush for floor mats and the Light pipe crevice tool for unyielding dirt buildup and hard-to-reach areas.

5. For smaller living quarters

For some, household Christmas gifts may double as useful housewarming gifts. For a loved one who has recently moved into a small inner-city apartment or has decided to downsize, the Dyson Omni-GlideTM is synonymous with tight spaces and hard floor cleaning. As Dyson’s slimmest design, the Dyson Omni-GlideTM has been designed with an Omnidirectional FluffyTM cleaner head to move forwards, backwards and sideways to effectively negotiate corners, obstacles and small crevices. In just one click, this vacuum cleaner can also transform from a stick to a hand-held vacuum for quick spot cleans – a feature tailor-made for apartment and small-home living.

6. For the work-from-home setup

A study nook or work-from-home set up would be incomplete without a high-performing desk light. The Dyson Solarcycle MorphTM desk light can function both as a household gift and the ultimate work, study and living companion. Designed with a premium LED light quality that lasts 60 years1, this desk light intelligently adjusts to daylight, reduces blue light exposure in in the morning and evening, and auto-corrects brightness as we age (and require more light assistance). Featuring specific modes tailored to studying, precision working, relaxing and waking, this desk light is suitable for every unique home setting and lifestyle.

1LED-life calculation is based on L70 measurement according to IEC 62717, with an estimation of 8 hours’ usage per day. Real-life results may vary.
