Elodie Bachelier Amelie Art Print

This exclusive Urban Outfitters art print will delight the budding artist. A raw sketched portrait of a woman unseen is printed on archival paper made from cotton pressed in Italian mills. Whether it hangs above a clawfoot tub or above an all-white fluffy bed, the intimate print will be the focal point of any space.

You can completely customize it according to your giftee’s taste, too. The print comes in five sizes, ranging from 8 x 10 inches to 40 x 60 inches, as well various types of frames. A black frame keeps with the print’s edgy, modern vibe, while a white matte frame creates a white-on-white aesthetic that’s clean and minimal. You can also opt for an exposed wood, like walnut or natural wood, for a more rustic setting.

Alegorie Woven Basket Wall Hanging

Not sure what space your home decor lover is looking to spruce up next? Alegorie's Woven Basket Wall Hanging is a versatile pick as it's available in various hues and works as a coffee table tray, console catchall, kitchen produce bowl, or, of course, a wall hanging.

The lightweight piece is handwoven by artisans in Vietnam who combine natural fibers like seagrass with recycled vinyl. A hook on the back of the bowl makes it exceptionally easy to hang and if you know your recipient has been looking for the right piece to fill a large empty wall, you can get them all three colors which beautifully complement one another.

Anthropologie Shibori-Dyed Leather Vase

Flowers don’t just go in vases—they also go on them! At least, they do in these hand-dyed leather vases inspired by the centuries-old Japanese dye technique of shibori. It’s one of the oldest indigo dye techniques in Japan, which produces patterns on fabric. The artists do this by isolating tiny points on the fabric with thread, and then dying those spots with color.

The hand-dyed leather here covers glass, and the vases are available in three different colors and sizes. The smallest—a 7-inch pink vase—is adorned with whimsical white flowers; a 10.5-inch striped vase features a sunny yellow disposition; and a 12-inch blue vase returns to the white floral motif but this time with a pop of red at the center. All are sold separately, but together they make quite the springtime dream.

Chemex 8-Cup Classic Coffeemaker

If your giftee has a serious penchant for coffee, this classic Chemex will immediately win them over. The glass coffeemaker is timeless in design and function and added elements—like a polished wood collar and leather tie—lend it some serious style points.

The aesthetically pleasing coffeemaker can brew eight cups of coffee at a time and its borosilicate glass construction is both heat resistant and non odor absorbing. If your friend is currently into cold brew, they'll also be pleased to find that it be refrigerated without any loss of flavor. When it's not in use, the Chemex also looks beautiful on an open shelf or countertop—so they won't have to tuck it away before company comes over.

This photo-heavy tome from Patricia Schultz is a staple for any serious coffee table book collector. It features 544 pages with 1,100 photographs and accompanying text that will take readers on a visual trip around the world, from Old Town Square in Prague to Inle Lake in Myanmar. It’s the ultimate bucket list book for some serious travel inspiration, including not just destination ideas, but recommendations on where to stay and what to do.

The exterior is just as striking as its contents, too; a sophisticated cobalt cover is embellished with a gold foil design that'll instantly class up any coffee table or ottoman.

If you're friend fancies themselves an amateur bartender, look no further than this stainless steel set which dazzles with a gold-plated finish. The kit comes with a double-sided jigger (for 1- and 1.5-ounce pours), a cocktail shaker, and a strainer that'll get your cocktail smooth as can be. Top things off with a lime slice or a an orange twist, cut by the provided bar knife, of course. And for those who prefer a cold beer over craft cocktails, there's a bottle opener for that. Even when not it’s not in use, this set will add a dose of style to any space courtesy of its weighted marble stand.

Who wouldn’t want to cuddle all winter long in this faux fur snow leopard throw? There are plenty of cozy faux fur throws on the market, but it’s rare to find one with a white snow leopard print. It’ll add a luxe touch draped across the foot of a bed or along the corner of an armchair while bringing a layer of texture to the living space. Plus, white always creates a sense of calm and openness in any room.

Bonus: At 48 x 80 inches, there’s plenty of room for two. Preserving its beauty is also easy—a quick toss into the washing machine on cold is all it needs.

Jungalow Tin + Wood Stand Planter Set

For the loved one with a green thumb, these pressed-tin planters will make a playful statement. The juxtaposition of wood and funky diagonal-patterned tin amplifies their eccentricity. The planters, which comes as a set, measure 11 and 17 inches in diameter, so they'll also add some visual interest with their varying heights and sizes.

Such bold planters should, of course, have equally fun plants. If you want to take this gift to the next level, pair it with an unexpected plant. The calathea survives in low light conditions and likes room temps and will create a tropical vibe with its vivid green leaves. We also love the African mask plant, which has dark green leaves with silvery-white veins for a moodier vibe.

LAFCO New York Mint Tisane Reed Diffuser

A home that smells good is just as nice as a home that looks good. The mint tisane reed diffuser by LAFCO New York takes aromatherapy to the next level with large, natural reeds crafted with an essential oil based fragrance designed to create a more soothing atmosphere. The diffuser is more than a quality scent, though—it’s also about quality looks. The reeds come in a slick lime green jar that looks polished while sitting atop a dresser or console.

If you're not sure how your loved one feels about mint (the scent or color), LAFCO New York has several other options, each in colored vases that matches its fragrance. There’s something warm, husky, fresh, fruity, or floral for everyone; take your pick between amber black vanilla, French lilac, sea and dune, and duchess peony.

Bookworms will love the creative take on these bookends. A pair of quotation marks made of concrete, cement, and beton pay perfect tribute to the literary world in a minimalist, modern design. It’s a unique way for a book lover to group together her favorite worn copies of Little Women and Wuthering Heights while adding a bit of character to her bookshelf. The bookends come in six different colors—rose gold, white, silver, black, and natural gray—so you’re bound to find a finish that complements her space.

The pieces are sturdy, with a 5 x 3 x 3.5-inch build. And because they’re handmade, each piece varies slightly which only accentuates their singular appeal. If you like what you see and you want more, the designer, Nadia MSeffar, is a master behind concrete art forms; her shop features everything from planters to phone stands made with raw industrial concrete.

Modern Gesture Woven Mirror

Handmade in South Africa, this woven mirror will be the talking point of any wall. Natural birch and color wax cord combine for a contemporary, rustic design that juxtaposes the rigid lines of its woven details with the soft curves of the frame. Color, too, serves as a contrast, pitting striking black against light wood. This piece of art would stand out even more next to a different texture, like hanging above a leather couch or against a brick wall.

It was designed by Modern Gesture, which creates pieces infused with South African tradition. The Cape Town-based brand, from founder Candice Lawrence, also operates on the practice of sustainability; it uses recycled wood offcuts to fashion eco-friendly pieces like this stunning mirror.
