‘Tis the season for gift giving! The holidays are fast approaching, and you may be feeling the pressure to find the perfect gift. Whether you are looking for stocking stuffers, small gifts to round out the big-ticket items already on their way, or you just need help finding a few high-quality host/hostess gifts to keep on hand for parties, we have some suggestions we hope you will love!
Kitchen gadgets make wonderful stocking stuffers! Every home cook could use a new whisk, or a set of wooden spoons; kitchen timers, juicers, and corkscrews always come in handy, too. Here are a few options in particular that caught our eye:
•Magnetic knife holders: Frees up counter space by displaying knives on the wall, rather than in a butchers block.
•Mortar and pestle: Terrific for the home cook who grinds their own spices, or loves making guacamole.
•Cutting boards: They come in all shapes, sizes, and materials!
Around the House
When giving someone a gift—either as a host/hostess gift, or simply a lifestyle-enhancing product—think about the person to whom you are giving; make sure it matches their décor, but also their lifestyle. If there are young children in the house, a high-end Jo Malone candle might not be the right gift, but it’s perfect for a child-free household.
•The Laundress: Laundry products as a present? Luxury brand, The Laundress, are truly luxurious.
•Bar Accessories: A new shaker, jigger, and bar spoon make a terrific gift set. You can buy pieces individually or various sets can be found online and in stores.
•A board game: These make especially fun gifts for families, just make sure to pick one that suits the ages of the kids as well as the adults. If you like the classics— Monopoly, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit—check out the collector’s and anniversary editions, whichoften have upscale features like swiveling boards, woodenboxes/cases, etc.
We hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season! From the Cabinets & Designs family to yours: Season’s Greetings!
