What to buy for everyone on your shopping list

‘Tis the season for festive music, clinking champagne glasses and last-minute gift shopping. Even if you make a list and check it twice, we all get stumped from time to time on what to buy that hard-to-shop-for BFF. We’ve got you covered: we love this time of year and keep our shop stocked with a hand-picked selection of unique items that make great gifts. Read our Holiday Gift Guide for some inspiration to help you find the perfect gift for…

The friend who has everything

It can be daunting to buy a gift for someone who seems to have it all, but the trick is to give them something they wouldn’t splurge on for themselves. Here are some key pieces we love to gift (and to receive!).
Wooden bowl, intricate statue and throw pillow

A handmade wooden bowl from Andrew Pearce is a thoughtful and versatile gift that can be used to serve at dinner parties or to showcase souvenirs on a coffee table. It’s the perfect gift for the chic design-minded friend whose home is littered with trinkets from her travels, or the hostess extraordinaire who loves to entertain.

If you know your recipient very well, consider surprising them with a unique figurine or statue that you know will complement their existing collection. A statue large or small that suits their style can be a meaningful keepsake. Our selection of eclectic artifacts spans a wide range of finishes and subjects, and our knowledgeable staff can help you find the perfect piece.

If you have a special message or memory to share, our customized throw pillows are the perfect custom token. As unique as they are comfortable, our accent pillows  are a great way to commemorate a special place, time or memory. They’ll be touched that you took the time to make something just for them.

An acquaintance or distant relative

The holidays can mean a rare reunion with a cousin you last saw at their college graduation or an uncle you only met once. Keeping thoughtful trinkets with broad appeal on hand will ensure you’re prepared for unexpected gifting opportunities.
Glassware, silverware and candle

Simon Pearce glassware in any shape, size or form is a welcome gift for everyone, whether you’re handing out engraved ornaments to all or tucking away an extra trinket to welcome the occasional unexpected guest. Each piece is handcrafted, resulting in unique details that make every creation one of a kind.

For a loved one whose tastes you don’t know well, our large selection of Mariposa tableware and picture frames is a treasure trove of sure-fire crowd-pleasers. A simple, elegant frame is a win for everyone, since it will be customized with an image they love (like the family holiday photo you’ll be taking together).

Semi-consumable, candles are always a welcome addition to even the most robust collection. The elegant scents imbued into Fleur’s glass-encased votives add extra oomph to any room. There’s always a Fleur candle burning in our shop, so stop by, experience the magic—and maybe grab a few for yourself while you’re shopping. We won’t tell.

An essential first impression

As families and friends combine in new ways, holiday events often include important first impressions. Whether you’re meeting a partner’s family, thanking a recent mentor or welcoming new neighbors, there may be someone on your holiday gift list whose style is hard to anticipate. Take this opportunity to give a gift that helps you get to know each other.

stack of books, serving bowls and champagne glass

Party conversation so often returns to reading lists because it’s fun to share authors and titles we love, and thrilling to find a new connection who shares your taste. Decorative books that reflect interests you and their recipient may share can help forge instant, meaningful connections and show tremendous thoughtfulness. We source books from across the country for their color, style and themes, so we guarantee you’ll leave our shop with a unique selection.

Serving trays—plural—are essentials in every home, especially for a host or hostess who may run out of platters during the very party you’re attending. Be the guest that comes to the rescue and shop our wide selection from Juliska and Mariposa for diverse styles that are as fashionable as they are functional.

There’s a tight turnaround between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, so a forward-thinking gift to make that midnight toast special is always appreciated. Simon Pearce glassware is an especially thoughtful indulgence. Pair it with your favorite bubbly to impress not only with your thoughtfulness, but also your impeccable taste.

 

Stop by our showroom to finish your shopping for those hard-to-please holdouts on your list, and grab a treat for yourself while you’re here. Our team of designers is always on hand to help you find the perfect gift to make this holiday season extra special.
