What To Give Them:

Help them get their cozy on with gifts that say ‘Why go out when you can lounge out?’ and make sure it’s something they’ll love staying in with. You want to help make their home the place to be and where they’ll always find their zen.

Our Stylists’ Top Picks:

Finally, there’s the friend who’s the hardest to shop for, always. They’re the cool, trendy friend who loves it when you ask ‘Where’d you get that?’ about something in their home.

What To Give Them:

This one’s always tricky and can be frustrating to shop for. Just remember that it’s because they know what they like. Give them a gift they’ll be impressed by, which means unique objects, items that “have a story,” and things that are a little unexpected.

Our Stylists’ Top Picks:

  • Worldly Art — The key to finding artwork for a friend is to pick something that’s personal to the both of you and your friendship. Find a special print or frame something that reminds you of them.
  • Cool Decorative Object — An amazing sculptural or a pretty metallic item are always welcome presents. They’re chic and functional, a win-win!
  • Eclectic Pillow — A brightly patterned pillow made of a unique fabric or with a distinct print is always a special gift.
