The holidays are officially here, and it’s just about that mad dash time where your holiday shopping turns from fun…to frantic! Nate has a reputation for being a bit of a “gift whisperer” though, and this year he got together with Lauren, his partner at the design firm, and they’ve pulled together the perfect gift guide cheat sheet (is there such a thing? There should be!). Read on to see some of their favorite gift picks for the season. Here’s to checking everyone off your list!
A holiday chocolate box with pizzazz: the Nate Berkus x andSons Peace + Palm Trees Holiday Chocolate Box. Designed by Nate and Lauren, this festively chic box is a nod to andSons’ new shop & cafe in Beverly Hills, which the firm designed. We’ve got 3 words for you: Charred Cinnamon Caramel.
Lauren’s gift picks this year are all about the sparkle, with this diamond baguette twist ring from The Last Line (try it on your pinky!) and the teardrop stud earrings from Dana Rebecca that are perfect for layering (fail proof gift idea, anyone?!). For the home, these beautiful Natural Pulled Linen Napkins from Creative Women support female artisans in Ethiopia, Bolivia and Morocco. This small agave plant in a stone pot (like these from Jayson Home) can bring back warm-weather vibes even in the deepest winter chill.
Nate’s got ideas for the design lovers on your list: AD’s Century of Style for the friend who rearranges your furniture, and Artemis kilim smoking slippers for that person on your list who loves a one-of-a-kind find. Dermatologist David Colbert’s CBD face oil and Patron Silver tequila are survival kit musts for the season. The MoMA Design Store has tons of unique, design-forward gift ideas. Nate’s faves: a plush pineapple he got for Oskar and this Yayoi Kusama charm for Poppy’s backpack (she’s a big fan of the artist). Finally, the perfect stocking stuffer: Zab’s hot sauce – who couldn’t use a little extra heat in the middle of winter?
