Welcome to the most wonderful time of the year! Filled with baking, music, merriment...and existential dread trying to figure out what the heck you're going to buy for the people you love!
If you also find yourself sweating bullets come holiday time because you just CAN NOT find the perfect gift for everyone on your list, or have no idea what you want for yourself, allow me to take some pressure off of your plate, because…
As an Interior Designer, I spend all day picking out pretty things for people: tile, lighting, decor, paint, furniture, accessories, the whole shabang. It's the dream. I get to know our clients, figure out all of their favorite things and what makes their heart sing (even if they don't know what their favorite things are), and then get to present it to them in a pretty, curated package.
Now, you'd think, then, that I would be amazing at giving gifts to the people closest to me, what with all of my aesthetic magic and curated shopping talents.
That's a bit trickier. Sometimes (always) it's hardest to find gifts for the people you're closest to. Why? Two reasons:
You don't have perspective. You're too close to it. And you know what they already have, so second guess yourself on buying anything that might be too close to something they own.
The pressure. The longer you've known someone, the more you feel the pressure to get them the perfect thing of all things. Maybe this is just me as a perfectionist, but it's a struggle.
TL;DR: Specific people are difficult to shop for. But general people are not.
This year, our Christmas gift to YOU is to take the pressure off. These gift guides have been pre-approved by all of our loved ones (and our designers) filled to the brim with things everyone would be excited to receive. Things you didn't know you always wanted. That your husband wouldn't think to ask for. Gifts for your favorite homebody, chef, father in law, or BFF.
No more over-thinking!
So grab a cup of cocoa (or whisky), cozy up on the couch, and get ready to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list.
Happy Shopping, friends!
