Gift Guide: Dazzling Ideas for the Decor Lover

Whenever I moved out my closet of an apartment in New York and into a human-sized dwelling a few years ago, I became obsessed with decorating. I didn’t care if it was headboards, rugs, window treatments or little tchotchkes, I wanted to look at and snap up anything decor-related. My love for all things design has persisted ever since, and I know there are so many others out there who are just as obsessed with creating and entertaining in a beautiful home. And that’s exactly who today’s gift guides are for: all those decor divas and entertaining extraordinaires on your holiday list.

Solve all of her stationery needs with a bright and sunny notepad or adorable pencil pouch, and help her entertain with items like an artsy vase, a cheeky cheese board, a yummy-smelling candle or a gilded decanter.
