When buying decor gifts this holiday season, a good rule of thumb is to keep it simple and functional. You don’t want to get into buying things that someone would need to pick out themselves. It can be difficult to know what type of throw pillows or lamps someone may find attractive for example. Below are some great ideas that are, for the most part, universally liked and useful. They are also items that can go seamlessly with existing decor.
Picture frames are always a fantastic gift option for this season. You can always pick out a nice looking photo frame and give it to someone on its own. Getting a photo printed and placing it inside is a nice, personal touch as well. Frames are something that can always stand to be updated or added to in anyone’s home which is why this makes for a fabulous gift.
Another great gifting option are trays. Trays have many different uses in the home. They can be used on ottomans or coffee tables to hold decorative items and remotes. Another great use for a tray is in the kitchen to hold containers, or even in the bathroom to hold products and other decorative items. The trick is knowing what style the person you are buying for is drawn to. Whether it be more traditional or more contemporary, there are countless options on the market to choose from.
One piece of home decor that has gotten popular again recently are bar carts. While we wouldn't recommend buying one for someone, (unless they have specifically mentioned it of course) purchasing a bar set is a great addition to a bar cart or even just to the kitchen counter. There are all different styles of bar sets, but a simple silver set is a great go to!
Finally, coasters are always a great gift idea. These are useful for any household and can also be very appealing and decorative. Pictured below are some great coaster options. The black and white set are Kate Spade and are available at BedBathandBeyond.com These, and others like it are a great choice for your stylish friends and family. The other set we have pictured are from shutter fly and they are customizable in that you can upload personal photos and have them made. This is a great option for those more sentimental!
