Year after year I try to come up with fresh gift ideas for my friends and family. This year, instead of worrying about finding the right size, or in lieu of those gift cards we find ourselves reverting back to every holiday season, check out some of these very special homey items on my favorite things list. You just might find inspiration while searching for the perfect gift for the ones on your shopping list.
1. The Everyday Co.’s 24” Navy Windowpane Pillow/Mama
What’s great about this oversized pillow is that its windowpane pattern can fit in many different spaces. Its denim chambray cotton outside and down feather insert makes it the perfect pillow for lounging. As a bonus, it comes in different sizes. Visit The Everyday Co.’s Holiday Pop-Up-Shop at 19 Drydock Ave. Boston, and/or their studio. See their website for hours.
2. Jill Rosenwald’s Sprout Water Pitcher
Part of Jill Rosenwald’s Field Notes collection— these pitchers are a real eye catcher and a great accent piece for any table. Hand-made to order here in Boston, and it comes in endless colors!
3. Juliska’s Berry & Thread Votive
These two-in-one candleholders are a super cute addition to any entertaining space. Flip over this votive holder and it turns into the perfect tea light holder. Made in Portugal and are a great price!

4. Barbara Barry for Global View’s Stag Pillow
Barbara Barry’s Watercolor rendition Stag pillow speaks to me. It is so versatile it can work with many interior styles. Part of the Chalet Collection, this natural linen pillow will add texture and comfort to any sofa, chair or bench.
5. Serena and Lily’s Avery Throw
The Avery throw in ivory is the perfect textile. Handcrafted in Peru, it’s made of Alpaca wool making it the softest and warmest blanket. If ivory isn’t on your friends wish list, it comes in six different colors!
