The holidays are right around the corner and if you’re looking for some unique and trendy gifting inspiration, we’ve got you covered. We’ve partnered with some of our favorite design and lifestyle bloggers to bring you their top gift picks for the holiday season. From classic home furnishings to quirky decor, our team of bloggers are giving you the scoop on the hottest holiday gifts.
Hi, I'm Jenny! My design firm, Juniper Studio, is based in Mesa, AZ, where I also run my blog, Little Green Notebook. Our mission here is to share ideas and products that help our readers and clients determine their own design style. We want to give everyone the courage to get creative and to tell their unique story with their home decor!
The holidays are a great time to give gifts that help your friends and family warm up their homes for the holidays. If you’re looking to give big to the hostess in your life, a versatile club chair is a welcome addition to almost any room. For a touch of elegance that will elevate the look of a living room or entryway, an antiqued gold mirror is just the thing! An accent pillow with tassels or a comfy throw blanket are the perfect gifts for the girlfriend that is impossible to shop for, or the sister that already has everything. For gifts that are great year-round, a pop of greenery is so important in every space, and this faux fiddle leaf fig tree is a stunner!
Hi, I’m Erin! At Apartment 34, we offer inspiring ways to add sophisticated style to your daily life. This holiday season, we’re all about the "special." Rather than look for a thousand things, it's about finding THE thing. I’ve taken the guess work out of it for you, finding the perfect gifts that will add immediate style to virtually any space, because everyone deserves to enjoy the benefits of good design in their home!
Taking the time to find that one special thing that will bring them joy today, as well as for years to come, is the best gift of all. So, whether you’re looking for the perfect holiday hostess gifts, or want to help your BFF get her new place together, the following gift-friendly pieces will be the eye-catching statement makers you’re looking for. Any one of these pieces will elicit "ooohs" and "ahhhs", and you cannot ask for a better gift than that!
I’m Dabito and my blog Old Brand New is all about finding creative, vibrant, unexpected, and — most of all — fun ways to decorate your home. My style gravitates toward modern bohemian so it’s eclectic, but I honestly love most styles. I believe a home should reflect who you are, so mine is very carefree and free-spirited. I love layering lots of pattern, color, and texture, and I believe that a space can always use a plant (or twenty) to add some life and a whole lotta good vibes.
For this holiday season, let’s get earthy bohemian chic! I’m featuring navy, gold, and some charming handmade items to give it that festive, elegant, and relaxed look.
A navy velvet accent chair is the perfect gift for her — or yourself — for the holidays. The fabric and color are so luxurious and rich, and it has a sexy and modern silhouette with refined legs to boot! Another fun gift idea is a beautiful, handmade wall hanging, that makes a festive yet understated addition to any space. I think artworks make the best gifts, and a large, beautifully framed print of a tree ring is modern, earthy, and versatile for many home decor styles. That deep red is so fall and winter appropriate. For lighting, let’s add a bit of bling like this sculptural gold table lamp. It makes such a chic statement in a room. Another great gift is this embroidered accent pillow with tassels. I mean, what’s boho without tassels, am I right?
This is Kirsten from Simply Grove! I am a design blogger and author from Boise, Idaho. I have always been drawn to Mid-Century inspiration with a bit of Scandinavian and Danish design. For me, this holiday season is all about gifting crystal, light wood, and wool fabrics — because it’s all about keeping cozy and warm!
When picking the perfect gift, I always want to be conscious of what’s already in a space. To start, fur throw pillows are everything that Scandinavian Christmases are made of, and placing one on a light oak arm chair (this one is perfect if you want to gift the entire look) makes a great accent piece to any room. If you’re looking to give another warm element, there’s nothing better than a Pendleton blanket, which can also add some fun color to a space for years to come. I believe that everyone needs more light in their lives around the holidays, and a brass table lamp does just the trick in any living room or bedroom. And, last but not least, a crystal whiskey set is not only beautiful but practical, and the perfect gift for someone you love to share a drink with.
I’m Cassandra of coco + kelley! I’ve always said that my style is impossible to define — which probably makes me impossible to buy gifts for! As a designer, my rooms are usually a mix of classics and neutrals punctuated by unexpected accents and pieces that bring in lots of natural texture. As a blogger, I have my eye on so many well-designed items every day that I’m constantly sorting through new trends and ideas that I’m throwing out into the world. Lucky for me, all of this comes in really handy when it comes to gift giving! So, here are my fail-proof picks for this year.
I like to hunt out the objects that I know friends or family may never splurge on, but will bring them tons of joy. One of my tricks is finding a lower priced gift that involves more than meets the eye. For example, a vase that you can fill with flowers all year long! Or a gift that brings double meaning, like a brass-cast peace sign (that’s a message we can all get behind, right?). For hostess gifts, try something a little different — I love these disposable fabric napkins that are as beautifully designed as they are practical for entertaining! For the chef, nothing says love like an essential French oven. And, finally, the one gift nobody can hate; a cozy blanket to get them through the rest of the winter.
