For the friend or family member who loves to entertain (through a discerning lens), here is a collection of our favorite gift ideas for the holiday host—all under $100. (For gift ideas under $50, be sure to see our post from last week).
Above: We like the Patina Oil Lamp by Klong for a holiday gift. (Turns out so does designer Ilse Crawford who noted it as a favorite gift idea over on Makers & Brothers). The lamp is made of black powder coated steel, glass, and a French burner; €100 ($104 USD) at Makers & Brothers. Order today for US delivery and contact the shop for more information.
Above: Areaware’s Drink Rocks Bundle includes different shaped stones for chilling drinks without diluting the contents; $60 for the full set.
Above: The Handmade Shallow Moroccan Basket can be to store or display kitchen and dining accessories; $98 at Food52.
Above: In case you haven’t heard, our friend (and fellow Cape Codder) John Derian has come out with an oversize, image-rich, coffee-table-worthy book called John Derian Picture Book; it’s $38.57 from Amazon. (And did we mention that his Provincetown garden is included in our new book Gardenista: The Definitive Guide to Stylish Outdoor Spaces?)
Above: You can find unique culinary items from Jurgen Lehl; consider a bottle of Algarve Olive Oil Picual from Portugal for $50 CAD ($38 USD) that can be paired with the Darjeeling Signtom Tea for $30 CAD ($22 USD) and the Lemon Grass Tea for $15 CAD ($12 USD) at Mjölk in Toronto. Order express shipping for holiday delivery.
Above: Pair Tennen’s Spiral Incense in Ironwood Thorn (tobacco and oud; $42) with the Cone Incense in Spring Arroyo ($32) for the person on your list who loves smoky home scents; both available at The Line.
Above: The Leather Cut Wine Tote by Various Projects is made of light vegetable tanned leather as an alternative to the wine bag; $95 at March.
