Something for Everyone on Your List! Holiday Gift Ideas.
Hi All! thank you to all that came to Bering’ for the book signing-we sold out! No worries, Bering’s fans we have already delivered another stack. With Holiday gift-giving around the corner, I have been shopping at every book signing event!! Here are some suggestions for unique gifts I have seen along the way, and some Etsy finds everyone will love!!
For the Romantic:
Memorial Antiques and Interiors, MAI, hosted an amazing holiday event! I fell in love with this hand done vase, which looks like a natural coral, filled with the most beautiful florals by Cammy Johnson! What a statement piece on my book signing table. In talking to Cammy, I learned she also does holiday decorating. Whether beautiful florals or a gift of holiday decor, I just had to slip hubby John her card!
Moving on to Back Row Home, I thought this was such a great idea–collecting multiple vases in one big decorative bowl as your floral centerpiece. The round vases, reasonably priced, are a must in making this unique concept work.
Something else really caught my eye!! Made by a French artist, these vintage perfume bottles are literally floating in a resin cube! Or at least that is what I think the material is.
What a cool piece of art and conversation piece!! I keep thinking where would this look good in my own home!!
There is nothing that says, “let’s snuggle up”, like a cozy blanket. This one, from Three Doors, in a blush neutral color will not only look great in your interiors, but with its super soft material will feel like a hug to that special someone it is gifted to!
For the Entertainer!
This antique French mold from Back Row Home would be the perfect hostess gift. Fill it with the ingredients on the recipe and wrap it in a dishtowel, this would definitely say you are special!
Terri Havens, owner of CAL-A-VIE health spa has just released her first cookbook! I have collaborated with her and designer Kara Childress on her Houston home and everything she does says “special”!!
For anyone who loves to cook, is health-conscious or is inspired by a beautiful place setting-this book captures it all. It contains over 100 of the Spa’s favorite recipes that have been tested and written for the home kitchen! Order Here.
I fell in love with these paper napkins which feel like real coth!! I love using cloth napkins on my own table decor but I am not a fan of washing and ironing them. These Vietri napkins at Back Row Home look and feel like real cloth without all of the fuss. Look for them on my Thanksgiving table this year!
For Your Special Gals!
Etsy is a great place for personalized gifts like this alphabet initial necklace. I love how this necklace is oversized and it comes in gold, silver and rose gold!
This initial bracelet is a perfect idea for couples or a thoughtful gift for mom or a new bride! Super Cute!
For the Guys in Your Life!
These monogrammed dopp kits make a great gift for any guy. Choose from three different letter/monogram options for free of charge. You can also monogram the side strap to make it even more personalized. Perfect for the guy on the go!
I loved this one as well…personalized with branded initials. This is a bestseller on Etsy and is on sale for half price for $36.00!
What guy wouldn’t appreciate this nice weekender bag?! Also this is an item he probably wouldn’t ever buy for himself so it makes the perfect holiday gift!
For the Kid at heart!
How adorable are these personalized name puzzles from Etsy. Every toddler needs one of these to practice spelling their name! This puzzle would look so cute styled on a shelf in a kids room or nursery too!
Any artist young or old would love these personalized crayons! Look how cute the packaging is too.
Give the special kiddos in your life personalized advice to help them on their way! Choose from three different styles-graphic, graffiti or collage. This would be something they would cherish and share with their kids one day.
For the Pet Lover!
For your pampered pup! A hand stitched, velvet dog collar…this one is in my shopping cart for our Maltipoo, Stella!
These pet portrait coffee mugs from Etsy are created and personalized from your favorite pet photo. I need one!
What cat wouldn’t feel hip with a sunglass scratcher and lounge. This is such a fun design you won’t feel the need to hide it in the corner.
Odd socks with a dog motif? Who wouldn’t want to find this set in their Christmas stocking? Especially when the proceeds will help the Blue Cross care for and re-home over 40,000 pets every year!
For the Design Lover!
And last but not least on our 2019 Holiday gift guide, Segreto Impressions!! Filled with 400 pages of ideas and breathtaking home tours, this book will inspire any design lover! If you order on our website you can leave a personalized note in the message box for the person you are gifting the book too and I am happy to sign it for them!
I am so excited to do a signing with this mother and daughter duo at Renovate. Thursday the 12th from 12:30-2:30. If you haven’t been to this hidden treasure located at 7413 Westview Dr. Suite C, Houston, Tx. 77055, there is so much to see!!
Super cute with the bright green door, they actually face a small side street called Woodvine, and do not face Westview as the address would suggest. Mom, has her own design business and brings in art pieces and home decor, while daughter curates the most amazing unique items from clothing to jewelry and accessories, to tabletop and so much more. Looking for something no one else has- then stop by this spring Valley Jewel!
Mark your calendars for December 17th. The Hive is an amazing Pop up with so many cool clothing items and unique curated gifts- something for everything on your list and each pop up is different!! If you are like me-one for me, one for a gift! I am so excited to be a part of their next event!!
OMGoodness what a cute contest. Remember that talk I gave in Santa Fe last year. The mastermind of the event, Kathy Boyd came up with such a cute holiday contest. Decorate your ladder for a chance to win the new Segreto Impressions book, Color Atelier’s lime paint and one of their awesome brushes. I know I have some extra ladders lying around!! Just submit your photo on the original post on the ArtFusion Event Facebook Page by December 30!
Happy gift giving! Til next week! Xo Leslie
