Buy Modern Gifts For Everyone On Your List

Finding for the right gift for that special someone can be challenging. Whether it's for a birthday, wedding or housewarming gift, west elm makes it easy to find the perfect modern gift for every occasion. Use this guide to find unique gift ideas for the home for a wide range of different events.

Shop For the Whole Family

At west elm you can find modern gifts for the whole family.

  • For the chef in your family, kitchenware makes a great gift. Cutting boards, BBQ tools and kettles are practical gifts that let aspiring chefs take their cooking to the next level. Complete the gift with our striking trays in rectangular, round and square shapes to create stunning presentations.
  • Barware pieces make nice gift ideas for wine and spirit enthusiasts. Items like decorative corkscrews, wine openers and glassware are available as well.
  • Music accessories are an ideal gift for the audiophile. Give a musical gift with a turntable and classic LP albums.
  • Encourage playtime with our collection of classic toys. From nursery rockers to playing cards, west elm has gifts for kids to suit every age range and preference.

Spruce Up The Home Or Office

Shadow boxes make great modern gifts. Their clear construction lets you showcase decorative objects both in and on top of them, creating a sophisticated, modern look.

  • Desktop planters bring greenery into the office. Small terrariums look elegant and beautiful but require no maintenance.
  • Many items like picture frames or mugs can also be personalized or monogrammed to give them a one-of-a-kind touch.

Keep It Affordable

You don't need to spend tons of cash to show your love and appreciation. Decorative and essential home items are always useful. West elm offers a wide range of gifts to fit every budget.

  • Throw blankets are cozy, comfortable and stylish. Small and oversized throws are great for the couch and the bedroom.
  • Soaps, lotions, dispensers and organizers are practical gifts that make everyone's day better. Shop for scents you know they'll love or choose an unscented option.
  • Ceramic mugs can be used indoors or outdoors and are perfect for a loved one who enjoys a morning cup of coffee on the patio or in the backyard.
  • Scented candles and candleholders make every house feel like a home. Mix-and-match a variety of candles to create a thoughtful gift basket.

There are so many possibilities when it comes to gift giving. It's a good idea to consider the occasion when deciding; for instance, a housewarming gift will be a little different than a gift for a baby shower. But no matter what gift you choose, it's the thought that counts.
