Gifts to Write Home About
With the holidays right around the corner, finishing your holiday shopping can feel like an insurmountable task. You don’t have to settle for less just to avoid showing up empty handed. Inspired by the details that turn objects into art, we rounded up our favorite home gifts of the year, designed to live well under anyone’s roof.
For the host or the homemaker, our selection of elegant, handcrafted tableware is at once rustic and refined. Humble Ceramics makes a beautiful Mudra Cruet Set in a speckled ivory glaze. We love their canisters for small kitchen essentials. The things we covet blend form into function: the graceful olive set from LSA International is both practical and contemporary with an enduring quality. Influenced by mid-20th century Scandinavian design, Canvas makes salad servers and flatware with clean, minimal lines and a touch of elegance.
We are firm believers that utility shouldn’t have to exist without beauty. Example: Victoria Morris, a personal favorite. Handmade vases are inspired by mid-century design and Japanese minimalism, making for a truly one-of-a-kind object of beauty. Oh, and we couldn’t forget the ultimate catchall gift: natural hand-poured wax candles, developed and manufactured in Los Angeles in a range of evocative scents. We love basil and musk for creating a warm, inviting atmosphere. Go beyond the expected for every domestic this holiday season with the special pieces that make a house a home. XXJKE
