kITCHEN ACCENTS

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!)

The sturdy handle and utility will transport your gift-receiver right into a European countryside oasis. The differing textures add to the charm: one side is smooth for chopping, the other is natural in texture for serving. It’s as  sturdy, rustic, and classic as it is timeless.

DECOR FOR THE HOME

It’s no secret that we are big fans of home decor and styling - especially those simple accents that add texture and beauty to any room. During the holidays, our feelings for decor are supercharged. These simple gifts add endless punch to any room, any season, but there’s just something about pairing items next to mistletoe and holly, with snow falling outside and warm hot cocoa simmering on the stove. Go ahead, we give you permission to buy for yourself while you’re at it.
