It’s the only wish list you’ll need (at least that’s what we think).
No need to face the cold or fight the crowds. Our “That’s Impeccable” holiday wish list is here to save you from it all! We love to share what we love and what we love to give. And like most of you we hate the crowd, and most especially, the cold this time of year. Besides isn’t it so much fun when all the FedEx and UPS trucks bring packages to the house. Even if they aren’t for you, it still feels like you’re getting gifts.
Best gift advice!
Find gifts that have multiples, so you can divide them up and give them out individually. We love Diptyque candles. This trio is perfect to wrap up separately and give to friends, neighbors, book club exchanges, teachers, or just have on hand to give at a moments notice. Three gifts for the price of one! Now that’s a gift we love.
One last tip! When the candle is done, we love using these chic candle votives to store trinkets. A place for rings, finger nail clippers, makeup brushes, anything! Overall a great way to organize your drawers and shelves…bet you didn’t know we were so frugal.
Here is another candle fave. These Voluspa candles smell so luxurious and this trio pack can be made into three beautiful gifts. Just like our tip above, these tins would make such beautiful storage container for all sorts of things. What lovely little stocking stuffers too.
Gifts for the home & a little something extra…
We always like to find those great little additions to add to a room and make it special. You are always going to hear from designers that “it is all in the details.” Why? a home should look and feel collected over time, so it doesn’t look like very one else’s. Here are some things we love that would give a table or a shelf some character. And you can’t find them at your local Home Goods (not saying we don’t love us some Home Goods). But…you might want something a little off the beaten path. Something you just might not buy for yourself on a regular day.
Go ahead, let the holiday spirit take you to that next level of enjoyment. We just might pick up some of these too.
This is not your every day purchase, which is what makes them so special. These match strikers would warm our hearts, especially the vintage find. Betcha not many will be able to say they got one of these for a gift. Just imagine how charming they would look on a mantel or part of a vignette.
Feeling fancy? Or want to make someone feel ever so fancy?
These gemstone cocktail picks are just perfect! You just might have to put them in your last will and testament because these could be serious heirlooms. Something to cherish for generations. If you’re not sure who to leave them to, remember who told you about them (hint hint).
Not into candles? Try this.
Definitely not your grandmother’s potpourri. They smell and look divine. You just might not miss the diamonds this year with these scented crystals.
Who doesn’t love a good tray?
They help organize a shelf or a coffee table. Love the bold chevron would look fabulous in any room. We know there is an ottoman out there beckoning for this one.
Throws are a must have.
And so perfect for this cuddle up by the fire (even more so if you don’t have a fireplace) this season. They add a pop of color, texture, and that finished look to a room. We chose these two because they are so seasonally appropriate (Hello! Plaid for the holidays? Such a classic).
No wish list would be complete for us without books.
We love to receive them and we love to give them. No home is complete in our eyes without books. They are works of art for your coffee table. Actually, we recommend choosing these big beauties not only for the read, but as a work of art.
Speaking of art, why not buy someone a piece of art.
A favorite place we love to shop for art is at Minted and Artfully Walls. They have many options and styles at very reasonable prices. You just might find that missing piece to your gallery wall (or they can help you get started on one). We have always loved this bold playful London guard print. We recommend getting it at it’s largest size and although it would be super cool in a kids room. It could be great as that unexpected pop almost anywhere. For a more grown up look, the abstract bulb with its vintage framing look brings a great graphic too.
Men and Home Decor…BTW, that’s not a joke.
If you are buying for that special man in your life, he isn’t going to be thrilled with home decor (although we aren’t sure why). Here are some things that will make them happy, and you too. How perfect is that!
First up, the NEST thermostat.
Copper or matte white are where it’s at for us. And you too! It is just so sexy and such great technology. Two things he will love to hear you say to him. Trust us. Even throw in the word budget, and he’ll melt. That’s for sure.
Hate cords? Consider this.
A simple docking station for his iPhone. Come on people! It’s time to get your man (and you, too) a nice home for your phone. These are pretty but maybe just stress the useful part (no more cracked cords). We’re gifting one to everyone on our list!
Before we wrap up, here are some must-haves for us.
In fact, don’t tell anyone, but these slippers will be found under the tree for a few special ladies we know (heck, if we were Oprah, it would be “you get a slipper, and you get a slipper” for everyone we know).
Get bold and graphic.
We just love us some Vans. The bold graphic of these checkered ones are what design hubby and his littles will be rockin if you know who (us) thinks they have been nice.
And finally, are you gangsta?
We are and we wanna wear it loud and proud, don’t you? You gotta get you this handcrafted cashmere sweater, fo shizzle.
Psst, want something drool worthy?
We have been totally dreaming about these Hermes sandals all summer long. Yes, they are totally ridiculously priced, but the heart wants what the heart wants, right? Listen up, we found them slightly used on The Real Real. If you haven’t heard of The Real Real, it’s a luxury consignment store. Anyway, we found the sandal, except it’s a size 8 1/2. Neither of us fit this glass slipper. But…if you do, then “you’re welcome.” If you don’t, then we trust that you may find other great things on this site. Enjoy!
And last, but not least…perhaps the most important gift of all? The gift of great design. We can help you too…take a gander on how we can work together, and buy yourself an eDesign. Say Hello, pretty room! to yourself and your family this holiday season.
Homemade holiday design.. Several years ago, we were asked to design and decorate a space at the Bedford Village Inn.
