Our Design Lover Gift Guide is back! From custom scented candles to design worthy houseplants, this year we've got all your gift giving and receiving needs covered.
Last year we put together a gift guide filled with all the home design pieces our team was loving. We received a lot of positive feedback so we’re doing it again! This year we’ve put a special focus on shopping local and supporting so many of our amazing female owned and operated businesses across New England. Check out what we’re giving and wishing for this holiday season.
Rachel Reider, Principal
What I’m giving: Carafe Set, Lekker Home
“I love pretty glassware and this gray rippled carafe is a great gift idea. It's something you might not buy for yourself so it feels extra special. This female founded, beautifully curated home store around the corner from our studio. Lucky us!”
What's on my wishlist: Shagreen Ceramics, E Boiardi Studio
“I'm a long time fan of Elena Boiardi’s gorgeous shagreen ceramic pieces. We all know how I feel about animal prints! Her pieces can be purchased from several MA locations including M.Flynn boutique.”
Carla Ryan, Director of Operations
What I’m giving: Monogrammed gifts, Chatham Threadworks
“I love to make gifts personal and unique to the individual I’m giving to. My favorite gifts to give are personalized and my favorite store for all things monogrammed is Chatham Threadworks located in Chatham, MA.”
What’s on my wishlist: Spa gift cards, G20 Spa + Salon
“I love to receive gift certificates for anything self care: massages, facials, mani /pedi, even a haircut and color. It is nice when the time comes to indulge that you have a gift card to use. It's like receiving the gift all over again!”
Kristina Ranaldi, Senior Interior Designer
What I’m giving: 3D Knitted Botanical Wall Hangings, Birdseye Studio
“These 3D knitted planters are the perfect gift for plant and design lovers. Each item features environmentally conscious materials made from 100% post-consumer recycled water bottles by a women-owned business located in NH. That’s a win-win all around!”
What's on my wishlist: Dish Towel, Bristol Looms
“Love the soft feel of these dish towels made by this RI company. They’re perfect for just about everything.”
Erin Kelleher, Senior Residential Interior Designer
What I’m giving: A Garden Hod, Maine Garden Products
“A few of my family members became COVID gardeners. This Made in Maine Garden Hod is a perfect gift for them.”
What’s on my wishlist: Skateboard Dish, AdrianMartinus Design
“I love that this small business upcycles broken skateboards into turned bowls and so many other home items.”
Jess Kaplan, Project Manager
What I'm giving: Glass & Mango Wood Decanter, Simply Placed
“When buying gifts, I try to buy items that serve a functional purpose. This decanter from Simply Placed, a women-owned business located in Beverley, MA, isn’t only beautiful in its simplicity but is great for anything from wine to water to flowers.”
What’s on my wishlist: Honeycomb Duvet Cover Set, Parachute
“I love bedding that looks good when messy, which is something I think the women-owned shop, Parachute, has mastered. This duvet set would be the coziest addition to any bedroom, especially mine!”
Nana Nakazwe, Procurement Coordinator / Interior Design Assistant
What I’m giving: Ceramics, Gallery Store
"I love this local gift shop because it offers a wide collection of handmade ceramics from fun and casual to special occasion pieces.”
What's on my wishlist: House Plants, Seed to Stem
"Recently I have been very into house plants. I love learning about and bringing home plants from my local plant store, Seed and Stem. They make amazing decor items too!"
We hope this helps you with some fun, creative and practical ideas for everyone on your holiday shopping list (including yourself!) Wishing you a wonderful holiday season.
Until next time!
