Oh, the sweet month of May, a non-stop parade of weddings and graduations. All the monumental occasions this month have me meditating on the perfect gifts to help my friends and family celebrate their big milestones.
The Barbara Cosgrove Foo Dog Lamp would be the coolest wedding gift ever. Newlyweds tend to play it safe when decorating, starting with neutral, safe tones, not sure yet what colors work. Wouldn’t this elegant turquoise number be the perfect way to help them shake up the mix and build a collection of eclectic treasures for an exciting, sophisticated home?
And whether your loved one is heading off to their first dorm, first apartment or building their forever home, everyone needs a few pretty objet, things that they’d never think to buy themselves.
The Dwell Studio Glass Vase is a wonderfully affordable gift; I love the idea of pairing several together each filled with a few flowers to create dimension. And the graphic patterned glass of the Illume Mediterranean Candle makes this so much more than just another scented candle. Besides, everyone loves candles. If you are trying to buy a gift for someone who doesn’t like candles…. I give up. Why are you even shopping for them?!
I’m kidding, surely they at least fall into the category of tray-lovers. We all need trays, even if we don’t know it. Trays announce to the world that you know a thing or two about keeping a well-appointed home. I like the bright, modern ikat pattern of this Global Views Tray.
And finally, let’s think about ourselves for a moment. Attending graduations, christenings, showers and weddings means you’ll need a few new outfits and accessories, of course. The Kendra Scott Nadeline Necklace is a great statement to get you through this season of special occasions.
