Finding the perfect gift for all your loved ones takes an abundance of thoughtfulness and care. Whether large or small, you want to find a piece that celebrates your relationship. A neighbor with who you share morning coffees, either on your patio or at your kitchen counter. A best friend who lives across the country, but you make sure to share weekly zoom calls from your couches. Or, your younger sibling who just moved into their place, and they're excited to upgrade to real plates and tableware. Well, we're here to help with our team's holiday gift guide, just in time for our Black Friday Sale. We've recruited a few experts amongst our staff—our Buying team, Manager of Creative + Content, as well as our Founder and CEO—to highlight a few of our favorite gifts to give and to get this holiday season. Our recommendations range from gifting holiday ornaments, especially handcrafted brass pieces that add tons of shimmer, to unique wall art that instantly becomes an heirloom to incense holders with hand-picked scents to a timeless vintage rug. See all of our highlighted picks below, and for even more inspiration, shop all of our staff favorites!

"Farrah Sit and her team at, Brooklyn-based Light + Ladder always hit it out of the park. Their Tava Vase is gorgeous and versatile—it can stand alone as a statement piece or blend seamlessly into so many different looks. I am also such a fan of giving (and receiving!) holiday ornaments as gifts. Our exclusive, handcrafted in Austin, TX, polished brass ornaments from Circle & Line are truly works of modern art. They look like jewelry!"

Sara | CEO and Founder

"My favorite gifts to give and receive are statement-makers that invite conversation and breathe life into a room. You want the person receiving the present to feel special, whether with a smaller accent or a larger focal point. A classical art-inspired figure sketch print draws your eye, and handcrafted ceramic vases offer organic and tailored appeal. And, if you are looking to indulge a loved one (or yourself), choose a room-defining furniture piece, like a crescent-shaped sofa or sculptural console table."

Kristen | Buyer, Walls + Bed & Bath

"I love the idea of gifting original wall art. It's a meaningful piece that considers someone's personal and at-home preferences and instantly becomes an heirloom for their space. Vintage textile wall art adds the intricate detail and rich color of a vintage rug. At the same time, the photography prints from Ashley Johnson and linocut illustrations from Adrian Brandon lend such intimacy and tenderness to your walls."

Kelley | Manager of Creative + Content

"During the holidays, or truthfully any time of the year, I love gifting handmade, one-of-a-kind items. There's such an incredible amount of craftsmanship, so each feels specifically made for that person. I love that this ceramic object can sit flat atop a stack of books or hang vertically as wall art—it's up to the giftee to decide! This gorgeous and cozy bed cover is handwoven in Turkey, and since it's larger than a typical throw, you can use it both in the living room and a bedroom. Lastly, incorporating scent can bring back memories and moments for the person receiving your present. This year, I'm giving these incense holders along with hand-picked incense from a recent trip to personalize each."

Krissy | Divisional Merchandise Manager, Rug + Textiles

"I love love love the way a vintage rug transforms a room, so I love the thought of gifting one to a loved one. There's something to be said about the amazing detail and rich texture in each vintage rug. These pieces have survived the test of time, and it comes down to the highest-quality wool and handcrafted techniques passed down from generation to generation."
