One of my favorite holiday gift guides to create- gifts for the home!
Whether you are shopping for a hostess gift, a friend’s new home & maybe an item or two for yourself, I’ve got you covered. I wanted to handle this guide a little differently & highlight a few retailers that I love that have quality products for the home. Because of my home furnishings background, I think my perspective on home decor leans a bit more towards high end. Yes I shop at Home Goods, but I do think there are some items that it pays to spend a bit more money on. These items will last longer & the quality really is better than anything you will find for $19.99 in Home Goods or Wayfair.
Scents and Feel
I cannot say enough nice things about this company. Scents & Feel is a family owned business focused on marrying Mediterranean traditions with a contemporary lifestyle. They have created products to bring comfort & style to every space in your home. The standout pieces, I believe, to give as gifts are serving pieces from their Olive Wood Collection & their traditional Turkish Guest Towels. The olive wood serving pieces are all handmade & every one is a tiny bit different based on the age of the tree it was made from. The Turkish towels are super absorbent, get softer the more you wash them. You can get large bath towels sizes, however I think the guest towel size is great. You can use them in a bathroom, the kitchen or even as cloth napkins! Scents & Feel also offers throws, bed covers, glassware & candles! SO many great gift options. Local peeps- you can get their Turkish guest towels at Kirby & Company (and even get them monogrammed!)
My faux fur throw is probably one of my most prized possessions. I loved it so much, I gave it as gifts a few times. These throws are made in the USA, 100% faux & are machine washable. The soft velvet lining just adds to the luxe factor of this throw. The Ivory Mink is their bestselling (and my personal favorite) but Fabulous Furs also has a lower price point version of this throw, The Posh Throw. Retailing for only $149, you get the same feel for a fraction of the cost. I have this throw in the greige color & use it all year round. Plus they have women’s coats & vests– just saying!
I absolutely adore this company. Run by two sisters, Filling Spaces pays homage to the artisans by creating beautiful pieces for the home using block printing techniques as well as utilizing vintage textiles. They offer a wide variety of pillows, throws, quilts, poufs & even some artwork! If you’re looking to give someone a unique piece for their home- I suggest one of their poufs or floor cushions made from vintage overdyed rugs or one of their cute rugs! You’ll see some of their pieces in my upcoming home office room reveal!
