Gifts for Home Bodies

Surya pillow in raspberry and orange

Not only is the home my business as an interior designer, but MY home is my favorite place to be! I love to be there with my daughter and husband – we have so much fun at our new house, and though it’s not quite finished and ready for cooking big dinners for family or entertaining our friends, it will be soon. For now just having a quiet night on our own together is one of our favorite ways to settle in. This weekend when we’re full of Thanksgiving Turkey, we’ll be enjoying a warm fire and admiring our freshly decorated Christmas Tree at home. I might even have a few gifts wrapped and tucked underneath the tree.

Speaking of gifts, some of the best gifts for me – and the ones that I love to give – are for the home, like this bright and bold Surya pillow above! Oh how I love a graphic trellis pattern. Here are more of my favorite things for the home this holiday season that just might be perfect for people on your list:

ramekin

Bright blue ramekins from Rachel Ray

There are about a million things I can think to cook in these beauties. Let’s see…individual Sweet Potato Casseroles sound delish! Yes, the recipe with the brown sugar praline topping. And cobalt is still my favorite color this year so it would be delicious on the inside and gorgeous on the outside.

vase

Greek key patterned vase from Three Hands

Bet you’re surprised I would select something embellished with Greek key…NOT! And this piece is especially great because it’s Greek Key AND blue! A pair of them might look handsome on my new mantle.

mm

Moscow Mule mug from Mikasa

When my friends come to Little Rock and stay out our fabulous Capital Hotel, they love drinking Moscow Mule’s in traditional copper mugs. Why not have some of these cooper beauties at home so you can have your favorite drink and not even leave the house? We might just have to ask the Capital to share their recipe.

julis

Juliska dessert plates from Saks

I love all things Juliska. We eat from their whiteware each day at the office. And when Juliska meets a Toile or Transferware look I want to be the first person in line. And if these charming dessert plates are good enough for Saks Fifth Avenue…enough said! 
food52cake_612My favorite Jadeite, in a cake stand from Food52

I have this VERY Jadeite cake plate in 3 sizes and I have given one like it to lots of people in my life who love to bake. But even if you hate baking and are using this pretty stand to make your favorite bakery cake look impressive, who can resist it’s minty green color. It’s the perfect piece to take your favorite cakes to a new height!

As you can see, I LOVE to select gifts for the home! I have even more ideas on my pinboard – just click here to view it! What are your favorite gifts for home bodies? Tell me in the comments below.
