Gift Guide for the Home

Gifts for the Home

1. Everyone needs a cozy blanket and this Hudson’s Bay Company blanket is a favourite

2. The gift that gives back. Lucky the Iron fish is fighting iron deficiency worldwide. Cooking with Lucky the Iron fish can provide an entire family with 75% of their daily iron intake for up to 5 years. You buy a fish for yourself and one is given to a family in need

3. Music sets the tone for a great party and a speaker like this Harman Kardon one is what gets that going!

4. These geometric vases by Umbra are too cool for a contemporary apartment

5. A fun pillow like this pink fur pillow can lift any room

6. This Wool Top stool from Artemano is the perfect addition to a living space or bedroom (and it comes in 5 colours!)

7. How cool would your magazines look stacked in this magazine rack from Anthropologie?

8. Cheese is a party essential, serve it in style with these cheese knives from Marshalls

9. Cutting boards are a kitchen necessity and these ones and many others carried at Winners are too beautiful

10. A print like this one from Indigo is perfect for an empty spot on the walls. Give a pre-made print or choose a photo that will be special to your friend

11. This beautiful shadow box is the answer to storing small items like jewellery

    LOVE that you did a home gift guide! I haven’t seen one as well done as yours yet ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m really liking your interesting ideas, like the iron fish! I’ve never heard of that but I think it has a great cause and the purpose of it is really cool. Not to mention, he cute! Love the pillow, shadowbox, cheese knives, blankie…actually everything. I would be really happy getting any of these items as a gift. Hope you’re having a great weekend!
