Hands up if you’re like me and can’t wait for the start of holiday season. I love everything about the season – the decorating, the merriment, being with friends and family. Oh, did I mention the decorating? I love to switch things up in my home throughout the year but holidays are the most fun. We use more colour and you know I love colour!! There’s a playfulness that doesn’t exist at any time of year and we can be free to let our inner child out a bit more. It’s only fitting that I want to share my favourite gifts with you. It’s the inaugural Pamela Lynn Interiors Gift Guide and I hope you love everything as much as I do.
2021 GIFT GUIDE
1. NEST DIFFUSER
If the holidays have a scent, this is it. It’s fresh but warming at the same time. It’ll create that welcoming scent that adds an extra layer of festivity to your home during the season.
2. FRANKLIN BARWARE
Setting a table at this time of year is one of my favourite things to do. I love beautiful dishes and glassware and since we’re indulging, let’s mix up an amazing cocktail in one of these beauties.
3. MONOGRAM SNAKE CHAIN BRACELET
Is there a special friend that you want to surprise with a gift of gratitude? This bracelet is an absolute stunner and really, who wouldn’t be totally smitten with it.
4. CAPRI BLUE VOLCANO MERCURY GLASS JAR CANDLE
Candles are on high rotation in my home during the holidays and this is my favourite. Not only is it gorgeous but you’ll have a beautiful jar once the candle is gone (which won’t be soon because this burns for 85 hours).
5. ALPINE MEGA CABLE SHERPA BACK PILLOW COVER
We can’t wear our favourite cable knit sweater every day, but we can satisfy our love with these gorgeous pillows. I’ve mentioned before how important texture is in the colder months and this is the ultimate. (link to Simple Ways to Cozy Up Your Home post)
6. WILLIAMS SONOMA CLASSIC HOT CHOCOLATE
If you haven’t already tried and fallen in love with this, trust me, you need this! This is my all-time favourite and a yearly must. Go stockpile some for your own home and you’ll thank me later.
7. ICON CHECK CASHMERE SCARF
As much as I love colour I also love a classic and nobody does a classic better than Burberry. This isn’t the most recognizable of the Burberry prints but I adore the cream and camel combination.
8. CHESTER BRUSHED BRASS HURRICANE
Speaking of classics, this is the candle version of a classic. A hurricane is perfect for all year but especially so during the holiday season. It’s so flexible and great for a mantle, a beautifully set table or an entry table. The more the merrier!
9. FAUX FUR RUCHED THROW
The not great aspect of holiday season is that it’s darn cold outside. This amazing throw is like the warmest of hugs and holiday movies are way cozier with this around.
10. THE BEAUTY OF HOME – REFDEFINING TRADITIONAL INTERIORS
Since we work just a little bit less during this time of year you may find yourself with time to catch up on some reading. This is one of the best design books and you can spend hours losing yourself in the beautiful images. Blanket, check. Candle, check. Great book, check.
I hope you love all these favourites of mine. And remember that it’s ok to indulge in YOU this season as well. We often get so busy thinking and buying for others but I love to take time to buy for me as well. So pick one or two (or all) of these and give them a try. You can’t go wrong.
