Sarah Nelson, Designer and Content Creator
Sarah’s approach to design can be described as more is more. Lush velvets, decorative patterns and lots of color create the hotel-vibe that she is well known for. When she isn’t creating amazing designs for clients, she is taking care of a busy household, meaning that sometimes- practicality takes center stage. Right now, everything on Sarah’s list is about functionality and storage.
Cusibox Retro Toaster, $59.99
Diets are out the window this year and with that, everyone is enjoying a slice of toast or bagel. This retro toaster is cute and will look nice on the counter.
Sarah knows that you can’t make a proper cup of tea or pour-over without a kettle. This Bodium kettle is small and super stylish, making it an ideal choice for the coffee or tea lover in your life.

Jerese Twitty, Designer
Jerese is a lover of fine materials, organic textures and high-style pieces. Her wish-list features a few splurge items (which we are here for). Her picks are perfect for that over-the-top friend that you always have a hard time finding the perfect gift or for your treating your special someone.
This gorgeous leopard throw will become an absolute staple in anyone’s eclectic living room. Jerese loves that both prints are timeless and stylish, so you can pick the one that best suits their personality. With a reputation for having the coziest of blankets, they’re a great staple item for any home.
If someone on your list has a leopard crush like Jerese, this upholstered bench will become their absolute favorite piece. You can place this in a living room for extra seating or tuck it under a console table for an extra pop of style. Plus, you’ll officially become the best gift-giver in the world.
Jagger Dining Arm Chair, $499
For Jerese, getting this accent chair this holiday season is proof that Santa exists. This high-style chair packs everything you would want in a chair- comfort, fashionable lines, and classic colors. Place it at a desk, dining room or in a small seating area .
Yes, these might look like your classic velvet duvet covers. But, trust Jerese; she says once your family or friend touches the velvety texture of these divine sheets, you’ll become their favorite person in the whole world. Velvets add a beautiful lushness to a bed and since it is a thicker material, really help keep you warm during the cold winter months.
Micaela Farley, Lead Designer
On Micaela’s list, you’ll find some traditional gifts that are perfect for those who love design classics. While she thinks she’s the only one left in the world that still loves the French Country look, we’re sure you have those friends on your list too.
For the French-cottage lover, this bench is the perfect addition to their entryway or dining room. If you’re looking for that elevated home decor gift, this is your best option. It’s a timeless option and the neutral gray makes it easy to dress up with accent pillows.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to spend a fortune to find a gift that will allude to a French-country design fanatic. Something like a beautiful, hardcover book for their coffee table will always be much appreciated.
Chloe Lehman, Designer
For Chloe, the holidays are all about entertaining. Chloe’s design style is a bit more modern and clean, and she is crushing over these simple additions to your home. Anything that she can receive to get her home ready for the guests is a yes on her list. These gifts are perfect for the entertainer that’s always planning gatherings at home.
While gifting a holiday mug can be very tempting, keep it timeless with some stoneware mugs instead. These are the perfect gifts for the coffee lovers or tea enthusiasts in your life.
On that same note, a serving tray is one gift that keeps on giving. It works great for serving treats and appetizers during the holidays or gatherings. When not entertaining guests, these make a great addition to coffee tables, just add in a candle sticks and books for casual year round use.
Irah Price, Designer
In Irah’s list, she doesn’t really have a set of items she wants. Instead, she has a whole store — Anthropologie. Irah’s style is all about coziness. She loves to mix the old with new and Anthropologie is a great source for the rustic enthusiast in your life.
Irah’s obsessed with the rust hue from this fringed pillow. It’s the perfect holiday gift that will always be on display. Plus, it hits all the elements you are looking for in an interior design gift: color, texture, versatility. What more can you ask for?
Fern Table Lamp, $148
This mercury style lamp will add the perfect glitzy touch to a living room or front entry. A top pick from Irah, this will add the perfect amount of pattern and metallic to a room.

This is the perfect gift for the slow coffee drinker. Gerladine loves to sip on her coffee throughout her work day, making the Ember mug an ideal choice. Besides being a stylish touch to your desk, it also allows your loved ones to enjoy the slow drinking coffee experience that we all love.

For many people, art provides the defining characteristics for the room. Whether your loved one is adding into a gallery collection or needs an art piece that pops, we love the idea of gifting an art print.
2020 has given birth to many new plant parents. Plants are the perfect addition to any room as they breathe life into indoor spaces. This plant is the perfect introduction to plants, and it will instantly transform someone’s workspace without technically changing anything about its decor.
Marisa Rhone, E-Commerce Ops Manager
