Gifting for the Home: A Holiday Guide
As we get closer and closer to the season of giving, there’s a lot on our minds. Which recipe should we use for the big dinner? Where will Aunt Betty stay - at a hotel or in our living room? When do the kids get out of school again? When’s the last possible day to ensure Amazon delivery by Christmas? The holidays, while filled with love, excitement and delicious meals, are a season of questions. If there’s one thing you can lock down with no hesitation, it’s gifting for the home. Here’s our gift guide for the home to help free up a little more time for board games and cheese boards around the fire.
THROWS & PILLOWS
There’s nothing quite like snuggling up with a billowy blanket by the fire, cup of tea in hand and Christmas tree flickering. Giving the gift of cozy is essential for this quiet, slow and chilly time of year. Not only are soft goods amazing home accessories, but they add that touch of punch to a living room or bedroom that will make you want to lounge with your loved ones. Read on for our top-notch picks for gifting this season.
Let’s be honest - we could always use kitchen gadgets. They are standby, classic gifts that inspire creativity in the kitchen. Gifting accessories in the kitchen will bring in huge points - it will get your friends and family organized, give their home a touch of decor that reminds them of you, and who knows? Maybe they’ll even cook for you. Remember: they will likely use these tools every day, so be sure to get them a fun accessory with lasting potential. We’re all about an elegant, essential and useful kitchen. (It can be done!)
