Give the gift of special, eclectic pieces for the home this holiday season
Vintage Candles Christmas Candles
Everyone loves a good candle, and the closer we get to Christmas, the more our tastes lean to woody, pine-y scents. Vintage Candles, makers of arty seashell-shaped and bubble cube candles take it one step further with candles that smell like Christmas and look it. There are a couple of options: the pinecones, fir trees and snowflake-shaped candles look at home on the table, or even hanging on the Christmas tree (just don’t light them!). These pieces will make for a special gift for everyone you know.

Krete Manila Donut Collection
Makers of some seriously chic concrete, Krete Manila’s latest collection takes on the form of a beloved treat: the donut. Instead of ending in our stomachs, these donuts look perfectly placed on your desk: the cup holder can house your pens, the little dish can hold your go-to accessories, and the mini-lamp adds ambiance to any room.

Patsy Shaw’s Hymn Prints
Full-disclosure, but Patsy Shaw is one of my cousins. But even if she wasn’t, I’d still post her art here. For Christmas, the Philadelphia-based artist has a collection of fall foliage painted on classic holiday hymns, like Silent Night, Holy Night. If you’re gifting, anyone who receives these special works of art will surely treasure them for years to come. If you’re buying them for yourself, frame them and keep them on display during the festive season, or keep them up year round.
If you want something truly special for your home (or, of course, in the spirit of gift giving, for everyone you know), these one-of-a-kind floral floor rugs make a statement. Designed by young artist Mercedes Olondriz, her choice of shades and shapes pop out instantly when placed anywhere.
