Our Holiday Gift Guide
Filed Under:

Our gift guide looks a little different this year. After eight months of being stuck inside, we realize that the best gifts we can give are those that make our surroundings more enjoyable. So while you might see the occasional Birkin bag on our list, we’re really focusing on the extra touches that make our homes a place we want to be. We’ve broken down all of our favorite finds for this year by style. If you don’t know what style the person you’re shopping for is, check out our style guide here. Happy holidays!

  5. a&R Cashmere Robe in Sand: Wrap up in a cozy cashmere robe made from the softest sheep in Mongolia.

For the Eclectic

Eclectics love a mix of color and pattern with a dash of whimsy. They look up to the style of tastemakers like Iris Apfel and John Robshaw. Think outside the box and look for things that are flashy and fun.

  1. Ngala Trading Cheetah Kings Lumbar Pillow: This pillow pairs luxe comfort (courtesy of feather-and-down fill) with a jolt of color and pattern. 
  2. 1940s Jewel-Tone Crystal Brooch: Hand-soldered and embellished with crystal stones in multiple cuts and colors, this will fit right in with the rest of the Eclectic’s jewelry box.

  5. Mela Artisans Imperial Beauty Round Box: This artisan-crafted box uses reclaimed wood and recycled bone tiles so your eco-conscious Eclectic friend can feel good about putting it on display.

Quality trumps quantity for Curators. They love clean, modern lines and appreciate the value of sophistication. Kelly Wearstler and Tom Ford are a few of the fellow Curators who guide their style.

  5. Georg Jensen Alfredo Vase in Light Green: Danish heritage brand Georg Jensen is synonymous with timeless elegance, and this vase shows why. 

For the New Traditionalist

New Traditionalists are all about classic refinement, and they want their holiday gifts to last a lifetime. Their style guides include Kate Middleton and Nancy Meyers. Look for gifts that they would consider a stylish investment.

  4. Johanna Howard Apex Throw in Goldenrod: While this geometric throw may seem a little out of the New Traditionalist’s comfort zone, it has all the makings of an instant classic.
  5. Brooke Sleeper Sofa: The New Traditionalist deserves a treat this year. Go for a sofa that doubles as a pull-out bed for a gift of luxury and ease.
