Though we can hardly believe it, the holiday season is well and truly upon us. For those suffering gift-giving fatigue, we’ve put together a list of our favourite pieces for the hardest-to-shop-for people on your list. Keep reading for the best home decor gifts of 2017.
The Morning Chiller
We all have a family member who can never make it to brunch before 11:30. They may not sleep through the morning, but on the weekends they love to wake up slowly, chill in bed for a while and read a book or magazine (or, let’s be honest, catch up on social media)—all whilst savouring their cup of coffee. Why not give them something that will make it even more cosy for them to stay in bed like our Mongolian Sheepskin Throw Blanket? It’s the perfect piece for lazily lounging in bed while taking in the day’s events and it adds a touch of glam to the boudoir.
That loved one who always has their nose in a book? The one who can never seem to be wrested from their reading nook? Your natural inclination may be to pick up the latest Man Booker Prize–winning novel, but now is the time to get a little creative. So think beyond the obvious and get your bookworm a shorn Icelandic sheepskin cushion. This luxurious double sided wool covered pillow is soft, plush, and oh-so-comfy. And this versatile piece is neutral enough to work in any space. This gift is unique, thoughtful, and unexpected.
You know the one. Your friend who manages to escape to some far-flung locale on what seems like a monthly basis. The jetsetter in your life may not seem tethered to her abode, but in truth, she likes to come home to a warm, inviting space just like the rest of us. That’s why a beautiful accent piece like our natural grey Icelandic Sheepskin Rug is this year’s perfect present. Of course we love this rug because it’s chic and cosy, but we also love it because being a genuine natural sheepskin every rug is a one-of-a-kind that makes every space unique, sophisticated and glam
The Eclectic Homebody
They say every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Well, for every party animal in your life there is probably at least one friend who can be fairly characterised as a homebody. This is your friend or loved one who prefers a quiet night at home to being the first to check out the latest craft cocktail bar. They may take a big trip every other year but their Instagram feed is more likely to be full of photos from their neighbourhood coffee joint rather than pink-sand beaches from an island you’ve never heard of. They invest in their home instead of entertainment—and it shows. You won’t find anything from IKEA or any other big box store in their house. No hand-me-downs that will “do for now.” Everything from the baskets that hold their magazines to the storage bottle for their olive oil has been meticulously sourced and thoughtfully collected. Their house is impeccable.
Shopping for these folks can be intimidating and it can feel easier to go for a restaurant gift certificate instead of something they will use and cherish for years to come. Enter the Reindeer Hide—one of our favourite pieces. This lavish piece is so versatile so your lucky giftee can use it on their bed or casually drape it on their sofa or accent chair to bring a touch of luxury into their space.
No matter the holiday, you can count on this person to host a memorable gathering. The entertainer in your life is a bon vivant. Always game to have friends over for brunch, after-dinner drinks, or to watch the big game. And while their friends are always game to settle in on the floor, a little extra seating never hurt. But think beyond the fold-out chair and get them something more interesting that they won’t want to shove into the closet as soon as they’re done using it. For the hostess with mostess, surprise them with the Icelandic Sheepskin Pouffe. It’ll surely come in handy and they’ll never have to apologise for that plastic chair ever again.
