A Unique Gift Giving Guide

Giving gifts is single handedly the most rewarding and stressful part of the holiday season. Deciding what to get each person that is both unique but catered to their interests almost makes you want to pull your hair out! Which is why we’ve made your annual headache a little bit easier by giving you some out of the box ideas on what to get each person on your Christmas list. (just make sure you check it twice!

1. The Decorator

Everyone wants their homes to be warm and cozy during the Christmas holidays and pillows and throw blankets create just that feeling. Wether you use bold colors, sophisticated patterns, or clean lines, these gifts are sure to appeal to every style this winter!

A rich yellow velvet pillow is the perfect gift for the decorator that is not afraid of color. This pillow (and it’s pair) would simply be a dream come true!

A beautiful contemporary floral patterned pillow is also a stylish and sophisticated gift idea. The unique size makes it a perfect accent for a chair or paired with other pillows on a bed.

A gift that will always warm a decorator’s heart is a simple and elegant throw blanket. (you can never have enough!) This cream blanket with a beige diamond pattern will make your gift an instant hit!

2. The Fashionista

Nothing makes a statement more than a person who is not afraid to wear big and bold jewelry. If that describes someone on your list, here are a few options to gift to them.


These bold mustard tassel earrings are the perfect gift for that person who loves to be adventurous with their style and are also a fun way to elevate a casual outfit.

These custom made fish skin geode bracelets are not only one of a kind, but make the gift that much more special because they are so unique.


A statement necklace is always the perfect gift for that fashionable person on your Christmas list. This  turquoise geode necklace is perfect  to “spice” up any outfit.

3. The Hostess

We all have that one friend or family member that outshines all the rest when throwing a party and what better way to celebrate them this holiday season than gifting them items that will aid them in what they do best!

A beautiful set of napkins are the perfect gift for those that love to entertain! They can use them to spice up their kitchen or set the table perfect Christmas dinner. Pair them with a set of small shell serving spoons and you can call this the perfect holiday gift!

Another gift idea is a marble cutting board to place cheeses or sliced deli meat. It’s the gift that no one thinks about but makes a statement at the next gathering. Pair it with a set of large wooden serving spoons and that is another gift that will get massive smile.

4. The Question Mark

Going through the Christmas list, there is always that one person that could fall into all of the above categories or a completely different one! While those above had specific items that worked for them, this person is someone that is just a giant question mark. You don’t know what they like, what they dislike, and ultimately, what to get them for Christmas! Well, the best present for these mysterious characters is a candle.

A custom holiday candle in a signature holiday scent is sure to be a hit for anyone on your Christmas list that is important to you, but has everything or can’t decide what they want! Make it extra special by writing a hand lettered card to show how much they mean to you.
