To make Christmas shopping less stressful with the emphasis on the pleasure of shopping for others, it is my hope that this year you purchase gifts with style and function. Choosing gifts that have a shelf life for the entire winter season and beyond is not only practical but is less waste of money. Your friends and family will be pleased!
It is my desire to help you with your choices, so here goes!
FOR THE HOMEBODY there are items and accessories that make “quality time” at home cozy and relaxed, such as a toasty robe, flicking candles, a lovely throw, or some interesting, exotic tea.

FOR THE HOME there are gifts that the entire family can enjoy like throws, interesting bowls for munching favorite snacks, items to make the perfect cup of good coffee or tea, candles or ottomans that are multi-functional.
Unique Wall Frames. A fresh look for table settings at this time of year is especially welcoming, such as mix and match silver and black silverware.

For ONE-OF-A-Kind and PERSONAL gifts, how about a commissioned painting by local artist Annie Salness.
Here’s what the artist has to say: “Commissioning a piece of art might seem like a luxury but it can be an investment. It is special and out-of-the ordinary. The artist could paint your beloved pet, your child doing something they love, a favorite vacation spot, your garden at a certain favored season, or a simple word that has special meaning for you.”
Another suggestion is a custom print of your Ideal Bookshelf by . This is how it works, so ! I am sure your friends will be delighted to have their favorite books memorialized in this creative, attractive presentation. The prints are “forever gifts” to be treasured.
Shown here is a guest bedroom with a reading corner design by du interiors, where my client chose a custom print with her favored books.
