Christmas is right around the corner and we’re still checking people off our gift list! We wanted to share a few of our favorite thoughtful gift ideas for 2021 with you all. We hope you enjoy this list and are having a very happy holiday season!
1. For The Game Enthusiast: Vintage Style Board Games
We love coming together with friends and family for a good old fashioned game night. If you have a loved one who always hosts, a great gift would be a cool vintage version of their favorite game to add to their collection.
2. For Your Parents: A Framed Recipe
Is there a family recipe you make every time you’re back home? A nice way to say thank you to the people who passed it on to you is to type out the recipe on beautiful stationary and get it framed. It’d make a great addition to any kitchen and serve a sweet reminder of how a meal can bring people together.
3. For the Cozy Enthusiast: FLIKR Fire
There's nothing cozier than snuggling up by a fire! The FLÎKR Fire is a cute little personal fireplace that will bring warmth and joy into your home. Plus, you can make s'mores whenever a craving hits. The founders are a married couple who we are friends with and happy to support whenever we can!
4. For The Home Chef: Cookbook Stand
A cookbook stand makes following along with recipe so much easier, especially in a busy kitchen. It’s a thoughtful gift for anyone in your life who loves to cook or bake. We also just love the way an open cookbook looks on a kitchen counter.
5. For The Host: Cheeseboard Set
The perfect gift for the host with the most, is a beautiful cheeseboard set. You can include a cutting board, cheese knives, and ramekins to round off the set! A great add on is to handwrite your favorite cocktail recipe to be enjoyed over a handmade charcuterie board.
6. For The Travel Enthusiast: A Bundle of Vintage Postcards
There is just something so special about vintage postcards that have been aged to perfection. If you have a loved one who loves to travel, look on eBay or similar sites for vintage postcards from their favorite spots. They look great bundled up together and tied with a bow! They’re a great addition to any coffee table, and serve as the perfect conversation starter too.
7. For Your Grandparents: NYT Birthday Book
The New York Time’s Birthday Book is a great gift for anyone who prefers the classic look and feel of a traditional newspaper. The book beautifully compiles every New York Times cover from the day the gift recipient was born to now. You can choose whether you’d like the book to have a crisp linen cover or to be leather bound.
A sweet gifts for any children in your life, is a copy of your favorite book from growing up. You can leave a handwritten note on the inside sharing how much you loved the story and how you hope they love it too. If you get to delver the gift in person, it is definitely worth reading aloud.
9. For your siblings: A Framed Childhood Photo
A sweet way to memorialize a fond memory with your siblings is to get your favorite childhood family photo framed. Its a thoughtful reminder of the joy of growing up together, and how thankful you are to continue making memories with them.
10. For The Newly Weds: An Ornament
Every year when we decorate our tree, we love to go through each sentimental ornament and reminisce on the memories they hold. A great gift for newlyweds is a timeless ornament they can use to build their collection with. They can think of the very first Christmas they shared together when they hang that ornament on their tree for the years to come.
