Tis The Season! 5 Gift Ideas for the Modern Homeowner

2840 Sea View Road, Victoria, BC

Artful Earthenware

Hand-sculpted pottery and sculptures have recently come to the forefront of interior design, as they are simple ways to bring in style, colour, and texture to a room. From small catch-all bowls to larger centrepiece vases, and artistic sculptures in between, these earthy pieces can tie a room together and complement different aspects of a room, or steal the scene with unique sizes and shapes.

Throw Pillows & Blankets with Personality

A winter classic, throw pillows and blankets are one of the most gifted items during the holidays. These are the essential pieces when it comes to putting together a cozy atmosphere in the bedroom, living room or dining room. Depending on the homeowner, the fabrics, colours and patterns you choose should match their style and personality. Opt for subtle colours and simple shapes for neutral-coloured or minimal homes. For the maximalist homeowner who doesn’t shy away from flamboyance in their interior design and fashion styles, consider bright colours, patterns, irregular shapes, and unique fabrics such as furs, crushed velvet, or ultra-large thick knits.

Make a Statement with Eye-Catching Books

Show thoughtfulness with visually appealing and conversation-starting books that make a statement on the coffee table or stand out on a library shelf. Specific designers, architectural styles, culinary specialties, or moments in history or pop culture that are of specific interest to the gift recipient are a great way to show that you put thought into their gift. Look into publishers, such as Taschen, Tate Publishing, Phaidon, or Abrams Books. These publishers are known for their award-winning and critically acclaimed books in the areas of photography, art, architecture, interior design, craft, fashion, cooking, popular culture, and more

Stunning functionality with Wine Decanters

For the homeowning wine connoisseur, a wine decanter might seem like something they already own, and while this is true, there is no such thing as too many when you’re celebrating among a large group and tasting different wines. There’s also something uniquely satisfying about giving a gift that can immediately be put to use. This thoughtful and functional gift also doubles as a visually stunning statement in the room.

The gift of sunlight

A sunlamp is a bright gift idea that is sure to bring happiness and energy into the room. Its proven effects as a treatment for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) show that you don’t have to experience SAD in order to benefit from light therapy. Sunlamps normalize our circadian rhythms, which can help anyone adjust to jet lag when travelling or daylight savings time, or simply with waking up in the morning when there is less sunlight.
