Holiday Gift Ideas To Please
Home decor enthusiasts have a unique eye for detail and a passion for pulling rooms together. Whether they're frequent collaborators who thrive on outside input or prefer flying solo when it comes to solving home-decorating puzzles, it's their unique eye for detail that makes them a unique chore to shop for during the holidays. Sometimes it's easier to shy away from trying to find a home decor gift for the home decorator in your life. The fear of selecting the wrong type of gift is amplified by the fact that we might be judged for our lack of taste. Check out a few of these simple tips on how to find the perfect Christmas gift for home-decorating perfectionists.
Practical Accent Pieces
One of the most difficult aspects of trying to find the right gift for the home-decor expert in the family is coming up with an idea that they can enjoy that also inspires their eye for design. Gifts that can be appreciated on their own and also used as fun pieces in an interior-design concept aren't as hard to find as you might think. For instance, if your decorator loves a good book or an interesting read, you could find a few new novels in their favorite genre that'll also stand out on the rustic shelf in the living room, or a coffee table book to add some interest to their perfectly curated family space. Choosing a gift that's specific to their interests will show you've been paying attention and that will allow them to accent any room with a bit of their personality.
Another interesting way to avoid getting them a piece of home decor that seems like it's meant for everybody is to personalize the gift. Any personalized Christmas gifts, whether it's a piece of wall art that features their name in the design, a coaster set for their coffee table that speaks to their sense of style, or a comfy blanket emblazoned with their monogram, gives your recipient assurance that the gift is truly unique to them. They'll also be able to feature it in one of their home decor projects. If they like it enough, they might even use it to inspire their next room.
Challenge Vs. Chore
If you're going to attempt to buy some decor for your home decorator, it's important to understand that there's a fine line between providing them with a challenge and giving them a chore. Taking a chance with a vintage piece of furniture or a modern accent piece is perfect for someone who won't mind taking on the challenge of fitting the item into their home or trying to redesign characteristics around it. The downside is if they don't like the piece or feel forced to work it into their home decor. Be careful to get a gift you know they'll be able to enjoy without hassle or obligation. You could also use the challenge to show encouragement for someone who is new to home decorating or use a single piece as a way of saying you'll fund the interior design project they've been anxious to try.
Home decorating can be a lot of work. Whether they recently pulled together a space that you use often like the family room or a space used less frequently like the dining room, they'll want to be able to enjoy their work as much as possible. Consider getting them a gift that will make them want to spend more time in their space. Games are a great option to help them realize a room's potential. Finding an elegant board for a game they like to play like backgammon or chess or a classic deck of playing cards can give them an excuse to play one of their favorite games in their new favorite room.
If your home decorator appreciates functionality, and especially if they can't stand clutter, get them sorted out with some sleek storage. There are many clever storage ideas, particularly an array of multifunctional pieces that will be able to add style while also giving them the function they'll love. It also offers a unique opportunity to wrap their other Christmas gifts in a fun way. You could get a set of stylish fabric baskets for the living room and stock them with the rest of their gifts to feature under the tree, or put a twist on a holiday stocking by lining an over-the-door shoe rack with some of their favorite fashion brands, winter apparel and accessories.
