Gifts for the Senses


The month of December is one our customers (and staff!) love for obvious reasons: a festive, bustling atmosphere of warmth and good cheer; rustic lighted wreaths grace our windows; rosy-cheeked snowmen and sparkly reindeer perch atop tables; snuggly throws and hand-hooked holiday pillows cover our beds...not to mention hot apple cider and biscotti served on the weekends--a feast for the senses to say the least!

Speaking of senses, here are a few sensory-packed gifts we're especially excited about this season:

Touch...
Textiles are our heritage—there’s nothing we love more than sharing that passion! And it's the most personal gift you can give: a soft alpaca throw, a luxurious cashmere robe, a charming European tea towel to swaddle snuggly around a bottle of wine (hello perfect hostess gift!), brushed flannel bedding for your guests, a linen runner from France to adorn your holiday table, plush cotton holiday guest towels. These extra special touches around the house that evoke the spirit of the season and let your guests know they’re family…also make the most amazing gifts! 

 


Smell...
Home fragrance, such as candles and reed diffusers, are some of the most popular gifts during the holidays, and with good reason—the way a home smells is the first impression your guests will have upon walking through your door. And thanks to a spectacular array of choices, it's totally up to you how to set the ambiance through scent! Whether crisp, invigorating aromas of pine, fir and wintergreens; or the warm, home-baked smell of vanilla, brown sugar, chestnuts and hazelnuts; or a more rich, exotic combination of cinnamon, citrus, cloves, pomegranates, and black pepper...the possibilities are endless. It’s the go-to gift that never fails!

 

 

Taste...
We are super excited this year to offer a wider selection than ever of scrumptious gourmet gifts, including Muzzi panettone and pandoro from the Veneto region. (Let's be real...who doesn’t want chocolate chip breakfast cake from Venice on Christmas morning?) 


Louis Sherry gourmet chocolates from New York City are the ultimate in chic gift-giving, packaged in stylish tin boxes in gorgeous colors.


Also from NY, jams from Shady Acres, produced in small batches from perfectly ripe fruit on an organic farm in Hudson Valley. Flavors include Gooseberry Currant, Blueberry Rhubarb, Raspberry Chocolate Mint, Caramel Pear, and Hot Pepper Jam. Crazy flavorful and delish—(we know firsthand!)

Exclusive to our stores is St. Helena Olive Oil Company's absolutely divine flavored olive oils in both basil and lemon, as well as their balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy. (To. Die. For.)



We look forward to seeing you in our stores, and to helping with all of your holiday entertaining, hosting, and gift-giving needs. (And if you can't make it in, not to worry...we ship!)

Buon Natale!
