With the season of giving and gifting upon us, inspiration for gift ideas is always appreciated. With the colder weather and shorter days, it is easier to spend more time indoors than out. Warm and decorative gifts for the home can make the time spent indoors that much more enjoyable. Give a gift that truly keeps on giving—make use of many of these year-round, even during warmer and longer days.
Blankets and Throws
Keep those on your list warm and cozy with Madura’s wide selection of throws in materials from wool to suede. Use one for your sofa, window seat or even for extra warmth while working from home at your desk. For those who may be in need of an added layer of comfort for their beds, CB2 has quilts and blankets in elegant colors and patterns.
Scents and Smells
When the smell of fresh-baked cookies no longer lingers throughout your kitchen, you can rely on candles to deliver an assortment of scents. Try designating different scents and smells for each room—maybe a spiced apple for the living room or a warm vanilla for the study can really transform a house into a home. For gifting ideas, check out candles by diptyque or diffusers and room sprays by Cire Trudon.
Art and Decor
Design Within Reach includes an entire section for chic and decorative objects that elevate one’s design scheme to the next level. Photograph prints, table toppers and vases are just some of the items that could fill those empty spaces just waiting to be decorated.
Sip and Pour
For those who can’t imagine a day without a hot cup of looseleaf tea, a tea set for the holidays is a gift that does more than just provide a warm cup. Tea sets from Hermes can be a great addition to the table to make a room more inviting, or for any unexpected guests who may drop by for a holiday visit. Wedgwood offers espresso sets in addition to its collection of fine tea cups and tea sets.
