For the Expert Lounger - Ugg Throw Blankets
Irresistibly soft, fuzzy and warm; is there any person on your list who wouldn’t want a cozy throw blanket made by Ugg? The decadent Duffield Throw is luxurious, yet made for casual relaxing. Available at Lux Bond & Green in eight subtle tones: port heather, dusty rose, black bear, stormy gray, stott (chocolate), indigo, seal, and oatmeal; there are options for every home color scheme. Not only are these blankets chic, but they’re also effortlessly easy to care for. At 100% plush polyester, simply machine wash cold, tumble dry low, and hop back on the sofa for more fireside snuggling this Christmas season.
For the Conscious Entertainer - Mariposa Servingware
Mariposa offers eco-friendly table accessories that are both appealing and conversation-worthy. With handmade artisanship, Mariposa uses recycled materials in their serving trays, dishes, frames, and other tableware. This season, consider a gift for the home bar or for fun cocktail parties, like the Snowflake Cocktail Napkin Box or the Open Snowflake Bottle Stopper. Other festive servingware, like shiny trays from Mariposa’s popular Pearled Collection (the Large Octagonal Rectangular Tray, or options that incorporate marble like this Charcuterie Board) feature fancifully connected aluminum “pearled” handles and edges. Presenting cheese, salumi, and hor d’ouevres for guests has never looked so good! Matching Marble Coasters, held in an aluminum pearled container, are a lovely complement for Mariposa’s elegant trays—and for guests’ holiday drinks.
For the Family Matriarch or Patriarch - Baccarat Frames and Matching Crystal Tableware
The French are known for fine food, elegance, simplicity, and excellent taste. They also know their way around crystal! The Baccarat line, originating from the small village bearing the same name, makes lovely, fine vases, frames, stemware, and more. This season, give your family Matriarch or Patriarch the presentation that their favorite family photographs deserve: a Blue Crystal or Clear Crystal “Eye” Frame, which features a geometrically gridded design with an undulating wave texture. A matching Blue Eye Votive set, placed nearby, would truly illuminate these memories, and help your loved ones to share the stories that we only hope will be passed on and cherished by each generation. A statement-making addition to the mantle or bureau could also include the Small Rectangular Blue Eye Vase, or the Large Crystal Clear Vase. These vases feature the same smooth-textured pattern, and make a modern yet timeless statement.
For the Rustic Decorator - Simon Pearce Hand-Burnished Stainless Steel Flatware
Farmhouse chic. Raw wood. Mixed metals. Vintage finds. Global taste. These are the home-decorating buzz-words making interior designers go mad today! Everyone reading the top style mags is looking for ways to incorporate that handmade, eclectic feel into their space. For the rustic home that embraces this type of styling, the Simon Pearce Stainless Steel Woodbury Copper Five Piece Flatware set is the perfect gift. Evenly weighted with a hand-touched feel, made from the highest quality metals, each utensil is individually treated to accomplish that burnished finish. Simon Pearce designs are made to last lifetimes using simple, tried-and-true, artisanal techniques.
For the Hostess with the Mostest – Herend’s Queen Victoria Pattern
You know who we’re talking about here. Their home is always immaculate, tastefully arranged, welcoming, and intriguing. This type of entertainer, who sets such a gorgeous table, deserves only the best China—especially for occasions like the holidays! For us, Herend’s elegant Queen Victoria China immediately comes to mind. As Herend proudly cites, “Queen Victoria dined on it, and Princess Diana delighted to it in her annual Christmas stocking.” You, too, can have a piece of this royal tradition. The Queen Victoria set features dishes with a smooth white porcelain body and beautiful hand painted designs. Shoppers can choose from pieces like salad plates, bread plates, dinner plates, and tea cups and saucers to create their own collections. Fine china would be a very special and unique gift this Christmas, which any hostess would treasure each season.
