All Gifts

Searching for the right gift idea for that special someone never has to be too challenging when you have a lot of perfect gifts at your disposal. Whether you’re in search of a special occasion gift, such as for a wedding or a birthday, or are looking for classic gift ideas for the winter holidays, west elm has a large assortment of different types of gifts that are appropriate for every occasion. From work-appropriate gifts for clients and colleagues, to great choices for a spouse or other loved one, you’ll find everything you need when it comes to gift giving.


When it comes to books for a colleague, there are myriad choices. Look for brass word objects that fit neatly on a desktop, or a personalized coffee mug that’s sure to make someone’s day. If you have a friend or coworker who travels often for business or pleasure, thoughtful gifts such as a leather passport cover would truly be welcomed. Other thoughtful gifts for a coworker or friend include cooling drink stones – which are useful on an airplane to keep that drink cool – or other decorative objects that are appropriate for a desk or home office. From desktop planters to objects d’art, there are many ideas that are suitable not only for colleagues, but for friends and family as well.


If you’re in search of something special for a wedding or anniversary, there are quite a few choices of interest. Look for personalized catchalls or mugs, or elegant candles or diffusers that are sure to bring soothing aromatherapy to any space. Hurricanes and vases are additional options, not only for weddings and anniversaries, but for housewarmings or new apartment parties as well. For weddings and romantic occasions, there are many monogrammed gifts that would be a thoughtful idea for a new couple, to help them celebrate their new life together.


If you’re looking for fun and playful gifts, such as for friends or for stocking stuffers, consider “desert in winter” gifts, such as pineapple or cactus string light sets. Perfect for hanging up around Christmastime, but offering a desert feel, these are wonderful gifts for any locale. For more cactus and desert ideas, consider salt and pepper cactus-shaped shakers, cactus ice sets or a tropical cocktail kit, complete with shaker, to make tropical drinks even when there’s snow on the ground.


When you’re searching for the right small gift idea but just aren’t sure, there are many modern and contemporary decor pieces that would fit perfectly into any existing ensemble. Look for modern and contemporary styled vases and glassware, or small terrariums that look elegant and beautiful, but require no maintenance. Shadow boxes are another idea. Great for the home office or a living space, these boxes can be placed on top of one another. Their clear construction allows you to place decorative objects both in and on top of them, creating a modern, opulent look.


If you’re looking for a gift that’s just for her, consider jewelry catchalls or ring stands to help organize jewelry. Another possibly are scented candles or delicately crafted soaps. Perfect for a master or guest bath, these soaps provide both decor and a wonderful scent. Other wonderful gifts for her include mirrored boxes, candles and brass objects and stands. If you’re searching for gifts specifically for him, consider an elegant but subtle flask, or a retro record player that plays many types of vinyl. Other ideas include a copper cocktail set, electronic gadgets and classic rock records. For the traveler, look for road trip or field guides, which are smart ideas for plane reading, or for sightseeing in certain places of the United States and world.
