Great Gift Ideas for the Holidays

by Jennifer Staggs-Manley, Interior Decorator, Decorating Den Interiors

When it comes to your holiday shopping list, think outside of the usual gift-giving box.  Instead of figuring out clothing sizes, why not size up the home decorating wishes of your family and friends?  Ask your Decorating Den Interiors, decorator, to show you our array of fine accessories and home accents.  There is an appropriate choice to fit even the most discriminating person on your list, and your budget as well.

1.    Mirrors – These make a great gift and they are appropriate for any room in the house, no matter what the style of decorating.  And, you do not have to be concerned about color matching.  A rectangular shape is most popular, but round, especially in a starburst frame, is quite the fashion trend.

2.    Artwork – There are lovely framed pictures in every subject matter, in all sizes to fit your particular gift-giving need. Consider a colorful print displayed on a table-top easel, a matted drawing for a bedroom wall, an impressive oil painting over the mantel, or a delicious still-life for the kitchen.

3.    Lamps – Nobody ever has too many, and recipients will be forever grateful to you for lighting up their lives.  Let your decorator help you select from our vast assortment of beautiful styles.  One new trend is lamp bases made from materials appearing natural or hand-crafted, such as stone, wood, glass, and metal.

4.    Florals – When you think of sending flowers, consider the kind that will last forever.  Decorating Den Interiors has an abundant selection of permanent florals and greenery, as well as lush trees and floor plants.  We can also supply a variety of planters, plant stands, jardinières, and topiaries.

5.    Candleholders – With the popularity of candles, these are a most appropriate choice for a gift.  How about classic brass or silver, carved wood spirals, mosaic stone, hurricanes, or wrought iron wall-mount votive holders?

6.    Vases – No matter how you pronounce it, a vase makes a lovely gift.  Size is never an issue, since the people on your list need a variety of sizes to suit different requirements.  Whatever their decorating style, there is a vase, planter, or cache pot in crystal, clay, or ceramic to suit their personal taste.

7.    Unique Accessories – For the hard-to-please person on your list, give an unexpected and personal accessory: a decorative birdcage, a handsome trunk, a floor or wall easel, a plush area rug, or a romantic folding screen.

8.    Gift Certificates – When in doubt, give a Decorating Den Interiors gift certificate!  This solves your gift-giving dilemma, as well as the decorating challenges of the recipient.  Call Jennifer Manley 940.390.6315 to find out about gift certificates for that special someone.
