Our DDG Holiday Gift Guide: Something For Everyone On Your List

‘Tis the season, yet again. What season you ask? The season for gifting. And like we always say, if you’re going to gift – gift well.

That’s where we come in. Holiday shopping can be a real drag. Especially if you are strapped on ideas of what to get everyone on your list. That’s where we thought we’d step in and help you out. 

While we know not everyone is as design oriented as we are, we do know a thing or two about gifting and we just may have the right thing for everyone on your list. We like to think outside the gift box.

Of course, you can always skip the list entirely and treat yourself instead. We won’t judge.  

Our 2023 Holiday Gift Guide

For The One Who Sleeps In: A linen sheet set from Parachute home will go a long way. This soft set may not help you get them out of bed on time but at least they’ll love it. 

For The Baker and the Candlestick Maker: No matter the type of mess they’ll plan on making in the kitchen, these gorgeous mixing bowls will go the distance. With seven different sizes and made from recycled bamboo fiber – you’ve nabbed both style, function and enviro-friendly gifting in one.  Win-win-win. 

For the Coffee Enthusiast: We have yet to meet a friend who isn’t into a stylish cup of joe in the morning. And this coffee pot from Melitta Vision has turned us into cartoons with big heart-shaped eyes. 

For the Home Body: They say the best gifts are the ones that people won’t get for themselves. We’ve found that buying the best powder bath hand towels usually don’t top the list of things we buy for ourselves. So, go spoil that homebody with these stunning hand towels from Serena & Lily.

For the Teen Who Is Into Design: This ribbed glass lamp from West Elm will elevate (and illuminate) any teen’s bedroom style. On a bookshelf, a side table or desktop – this lamp is just super cool. Honestly, we may be a bit beyond our teenage years (cough cough) but we may just put this on our list too.

For the Grown-Up Who Is Into Design: This candelabra designed by SIN should be topping everyone’s list this year. Chef’s kiss for cool design done well. Honestly, snag one for them and one for you. 

For the Cocktail Enthusiast: Finding the perfect set of lowballs (or highballs, for that matter) can be a touchy subject for most cocktail enthusiasts. This set from Viski may have finally done the trick. Blending modern design with a hint of Gatsby-like flair, makes even the simplest of cocktails seem luxe.  

For the Puzzler, the Wordler, or the Art-Snob: One gift to rule them all, right? If they’re already into puzzles and word games, this stunning 1000 piece set will keep them occupied for a fair amount of time. And if it’s an art-snob you need to gift for, remind them that they can frame the puzzle once complete and hang it as a unique piece in their home. Nailed it.

For the Aspiring Writer: Elevate their bookishness with these Grecian Bust bookends from Anthropologie. Usefull, stylish and awesome. If you want to go bigger, toss in a fresh copy of Swans Way. 

For the One Who Only Pretends to Read: Listen, no shame. Sometimes books are meant to simply elevate our spaces. That’s what these Modern ColorStak Books do perfectly. Available in nine (9!) different color options to best suit their home décor style, this is the perfect set to line their new built-ins. 

For the Design Enthusiast: Alright, this coffee table wonder is just what everyone needs this holiday season. The perfect book to add to any home design collection, if you ask us. 

For the Outdoorsy One: Grab a hammock, hang it up, all day long you’ll be happy as pie lounging in the most comfortable and stylish space ever. Pretty sure that’s how the saying goes. This hammock from Business & Pleasure, Co has our whole staff drooling and ready to go lounge away our winter days. 

What are you waiting for? Get to it. There are only so many shopping days lef!
