The Daily Meal's 2012 Holiday Décor Gift Guide
When it comes to holiday gifting, we can’t forget the decorator in our lives, and most importantly, the kitchen-outfitting enthusiast. Although spaces and needs vary, a little splash of flair here and there of a throw, wallpaper, or a utility table is necessary — at least for the home-obsessed. So whether you scoop these up to treat yourself or add them to your gift lists for friends and family, we have compiled some of our favorite kitchen and home additions, all of which make the holidays, and entertaining in general, that much more enjoyable.
Some of the best venues to come up with gift ideas are key sources that assemble the best of everything all in one place: One Kings Lane is home to all things antique and sample sale, and is a favorite of Elle Décor. Etsy, a more affordable option, provides all that you need but involves a bit of legwork, as you must sift through everything to find that special something. AHALife, specializes in pricier pieces, but seems to find the most intricate and mind-blowing gifts with care and ease, making gift ideas at least, a breeze to find. The Fancy, a more Pinterest-esque site for gifting finds, centralizes everything in photos but also seamlessly links to the venues where each product is sold, and also provides the price at first glance, so you know whether to look away or delve in further. Finally, Restoration Hardware, a staple for cozy gifts, graces this decorating list, and provides some added plush for your Christmas morning dining, whether you'll be cozy by the banquet or cozy by the fire.
Wherever you are for the holidays, make sure to consult our gift guide. We've rounded up everything for the home decorator in your life — and perhaps a few treats for you as well. So live a little, indulge, and most importantly, happy holidays.
