For Your Friend With the Beach House

For the Home Goods Collector

Notoriously hard to shop for, this design-loving friend will appreciate anything on the simple side. You can't go wrong with a sleek and easy gift, like a minimalist vase you can fill with a few flowers, a unique room diffuser, or a pretty fern.

For the Practical Friend Who Likes Nice Things

We all like nice things, but it's not every day that you spend $60 on a candle for yourself or $30 on a beauty product that's good for only four uses. Any friend with good taste will appreciate a gift that feels just a bit too extravagant to buy for themselves.

For the Entertainer

You can't go wrong with a gift for the home. Get this friend anything that will enhance their next entertaining endeavor: a high-design serving platter, handmade vases for a charming tablescape, or leather cooking accessories to show off when guests hang around the kitchen at their next dinner party.
