With the gift giving season now in full swing, it’s time to get started on making that list and checking it twice!
This year try leaning back from traditional gifts like socks, neckties, and an overload of those tiny stocking stuffers for Dad. Instead, why not make a statement with ONE big gift that will keep on giving all year long? A classic furniture piece or great home accessory for your family or friends is just the ticket!
These 5 pieces are sure to add a lot of sparkle, surprise, cozy and comfort to any home this season:
1. Cabinet of Curiosities
Create your very own cabinet of curiosities right in your living room. A modern cabinet brings together a treasured collection of notable objects. Beautiful and rare pieces, or simple and small works of art painted by your children can be mixed together with signature items that you and your family love and cherish.
How to create a modern cabinet? Gather found objects like sand dollars or pieces of coral foraged from your last beach vacation, old photographs of family and friends restored and placed in silver heritage frames, a stack of vintage books from a rare bookshop or a one-of-a-kind vase positioned on a shelf are just a few ideas on how to start building a collection.
Store and feature your collectibles in a timeless double door display cabinet like this one, the glass windows are perfect to showcase all of your memories and finds - and there may even be room leftover to add in a holiday gift or two!
2. Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Faux!
The weather outside is chilly but that doesn’t mean you can’t wrap your loved ones up in warmth and style!
This gorgeous faux fur throw is a feel-good gift in more ways than one. Capture the look and feel of real fur, and without any harm!
Add a chic and decorative layer to a living room couch or chair by draping this luxurious piece over the top, and invite guests to sink into the extra soft material for a post eggnog snooze. Rich shades of caramel, brown and black will add a lot of elegance and charm to any room.
3. DESK the HALLS!
As we quickly move through the holiday season and into next year, working from home may still be the norm for most of us.
Why not gift your loved ones with a proper home office upgrade this season! Installing a sophisticated and comfortable desk for work, study and to achieve goals for 2021 is the greatest way to show your generosity and support.
Whether for work or play, this sturdy 3-drawer writing desk is the right place to get it all done. The timeless antique white finish is sure to provide both elegance and function to any home office. Sleek in stature, the desk also has plenty of drawers to stow away office supplies, important documents and device charging stations.
4. Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire...
Somebody cue the soundtrack and turn on the fire! A well-loved holiday song, warm glowing embers and your favorite people gathered around a fire sets the perfect holiday scene.
Luckily, with a fireplace mantel like this, you can create this mood in just seconds with the swipe of a remote. The clean, whitewashed plank styling adds a fresh look, and the realistic logs operate with or without heat depending on the climate where you live.
5. ...And to All a Good Night.
Who can put a price on the gift of a good night’s sleep? While most of us would love to wake up after the recommended 8 hours of sleep per night, real life does not always cooperate.
As we know, sleep deprivation can lead to reduced mental performance, weight gain, mood swings and illness. Couple those symptoms with a busy and over scheduled holiday season and sleep becomes more important than ever, but even harder to get.
At any life stage - whether you have a teenager in the house that requires much more sleep these days...or a spouse experiencing back or neck pain - a great mattress can only positively impact the overall mood of your family.
Although a mattress can sometimes be a pricier investment, the return is priceless to your health.
This king mattress and foundation checks all the boxes for being the absolute dreamiest gift!
Good things don’t always come in small packages. Although gifts of furniture won’t easily fit under the tree and may require some creative gift wrap, the investment and response from lucky recipients will be well worth it!
One fun alternative could be to gift wrap a photograph of the furniture and then have the piece delivered after the holiday rush...or stored at a friend’s house for a surprise. Last, a gift card for someone to go and choose their own special holiday furniture piece is sure to bring a lot of joy!
