Finding the right gift is always a well-appreciated gesture. Whether you’re in search of a graduation gift for that friend or family member who’s just hit a huge milestone or a housewarming gift for friends who just bought a new home, there are many thoughtful and wonderful choices through the gifts sale that we have going on at west elm. If you’ve been searching for a gift for the friend or loved one who already has anything, an elegant yet interesting gift is just the right thing to put a smile on his or her face. Sometimes, it’s you who needs a new sculpture or decor item in your home, so there’s no rule that says you can’t shop for yourself as well.
Many incredible gifts have the option of personalization, allowing you to turn an ordinary gift into an exceptional one. When the situation arises, shop for gifts like personalized totes or carry-all bags. Choose from either canvas or leather, all of which have different colors to suit any taste. Monogramming capabilities allow you to add initials, a name or other thoughtful or meaningful phrase to make these bags truly special.
Decor is always a welcome gift, particularly if you know your friend or loved one’s tastes. For modern and contemporary styles that are sure to please, consider a new sculpture or wall art. These make wonderful gifts for housewarming or new apartment gifts, wedding gifts and other special occasions. Small sculptures or bookends work well in a home office, in an entryway or living room, among other spaces.
Small lacquered trays or tabletop boxes are also terrific ideas for gifts. Instead of a jewelry box, these gender-neutral trays are ideal catchalls for jewelry, keys, change and other small items, keeping them separated and handy while adding color to the room. Small enough to stow in a suitcase, they also work well for the frequent traveler. Other suitable gifts for travelers include passport covers, travel games and tech sleeves that keep electronics safe.
For gifts that please the olfactory senses, candles are always a great gift idea. Choose from a wide selection of scents that infuse a fresh feeling into the air, with modern and contemporary candleholders and containers that bring hints of color to a space. Available in many different styles and scents, candles are ideal for any occasion, including the winter holidays.
Other interesting gifts to consider include a set of glass vases. Choose from neutral colors, bright colors or splashy designs for a memorable wedding or housewarming gift. For the friend who loves to host cocktail parties, a new bar set or flask works well, or consider monogrammed wine bags as a wonderful anytime gift.
