Designer Gift Picks

 

Gifting With Decorist Elite Designer Elena Calabrese

My go-to holiday hostess gift is...

“Anything from Heath Ceramics. My favorite is to buy a large coffee mug in some fabulous color and fill it with treats or flowers. When the gift is eaten or flowers die, the hostess has the best coffee mug ever!”

For that friend who has everything...

“You can't ever have too many candles. A Cire Trudon candle is always my favorite. Very luxurious,  so Italian, long lasting, and the most amazing scents.”

At the top of my own wish list...

“Can't get enough coffee table books about design, this double book set by Taschen, 100 Interiors Around the World, is one I've had my eye on for awhile!”

 

Gifting With Decorist Celebrity Designer Scot Meacham Wood

My go-to holiday hostess gift is...

“I often arrive to a dinner engagement with one of SMW Home's Signature Candles tucked in with a small arrangement of flowers. Both small gifts bring a bit of the outdoors in and will remind my host or hostess of the evening for days to come!”

For that friend who has everything...

“Those tough-to-shop-for-people seem to exist on everyone's gift list. In those cases, I tend to keep my eyes open for something antique or one-of-a-kind to really make sure my gift is incredibly special. Vintage barware is always a good idea for gentlemen friends of ours.”

At the top of my own wish list...

“I'm always a big fan of receiving beautiful art and photography books for my ever-growing collection as gifts for the holiday season. It's the perfect reminder of the well-spent holiday!”

 

Gifting With Decorist Elite Designer Katie Hodges

My go-to holiday hostess gift is...

“A handmade ceramic serving bowl or tray, which I often pair with a cute dishtowel or trinket.

Or a coffee table book that is personal and relevant to the host’s interests.”

For that friend who has everything...

“A bathtub tray with a well-thought-out and curated collection of bath-time goodies.”

At the top of my own wish list...

“A Pilgrim Collection aromatherapy diffuser.”

 

Gifting With Decorist Celebrity Designer Betsy Burnham

My go-to holiday hostess gift is...

Hubs peanuts: salted Virginia peanuts in an enormous tub. They even have them chocolate covered! It’s gotten to the point where clients ask me when they can expect theirs every year.”

For that friend who has everything…

“A gorgeous, handmade serving/cheese board from NoName woodworks in LA. Even if you don’t do charcuterie, every one is a work of art.”

At the top of my own wish list...

“Art! It’s always art. I love pieces that are abstract, colorful, and/or a bit irreverent. I’ve had my eye on photographer Julie Blackmon’s work forever.”

Beautiful interior design.

Easy, affordable, and all online.
