Best Luxury Holiday Gifts for 2017

The holidays are approaching quick! It's time to start brainstorming what gifts you are going to give to your loved ones this year. We pulled a master list of great options to gift this year, with a focus on warm, 'bronzy' tones.

Here are some ideas to be the best gift giver of the year! 


black agate coasters

These Black Agate Coasters from Neiman Marcus are suited for your trendy and chic friend or family member! The gold edge is the perfect touch. 

copper bar collection

The Bleeker Bar Collection from Pottery Barn is the perfect gift for friends and family that you are staying with over the holidays. Sleek and simple, the brass finish is great for the holiday season.

leather pouf

Love this little Leather Pouf from Serena & Lily! Handmade by artisans in Morocco, and the perfect way to add texture to your living space or reading nook.

throw blankets

Nothing better than a cozy throw blanket to snuggle up with during the winter months. Williams Sonoma has a great selection, but I especially love the Faux Fur Throw.

woven baskets

There's nothing quite like a gift that gives back. These large woven baskets were handmade by 150 women in Uganda, in a fair trade environment brought to market by Citizenry. They are stunning, and help the women who work hard to provide for themselves and their families!

peacock table

For the eclectic friend, this Pavo Side Table is a stunning gift! This side table is from Anthropologie and is super unique, and could add an artistic piece to the space.

The Weathering Steel Obelisk Chiminea from Terrain is a cool architectural piece, and perfect for a cozy night by the outdoor fire. Love the modern look to it!

Of course our favorite luxury gift for that special someone is the unique rechargeable lamp by Modern Lantern. This time of the year the Prisma Bronze Lamp looks spectacular placed pretty much anywhere you want it since of course it is cordless!

Trend Alert! Everyone is raving about one home lighting trend that you may have never thought of before- kitchen counter lamps.
