The Last-Minute Design Gift Guide



Smoke on The Water

We could all stand to drink a little more water: the smoked-glass Silvie carafe ($25) makes hydration look hip.

Lap(top) of Luxury

This sweet Herschel sleeve ($45) keeps your iPad or laptop safe and sound (and looking beautiful with a hip distressed-floral print).

Hang in There

Bjork, Bowie and Drake all make appearances in this collection of pop-culture inspired ornaments ($12).

Laser Focus

These buttery leather pouches ($89) by San Francisco’s Molly M. Designs are engraved via laser.

Going Coastal

These alabaster and brass coasters ($55) combine two of the season’s hottest trends: metallic glam and ’80s hues.

Thrilling Throw

Warm things up with a cozy, printed throw, like this Arrow Jacquard throw ($29).

The Grind

These Menu Bottle grinders ($95 for the pair) are a classic for a reason: the slick design and on-trend colours make them a dinner-table essential for any design fan.

Pillow Talk

These down-filled Eskayel cushions ($327) look like a watercolour Rorschach test, and feel like a dream.

Basket Case

This Roost Graf basket ($80) is much too pretty to be a wastebasket: use it to stow blankets or magazines instead.



The Seletti Hybrid plate ($65) has been on our wish list perpetually for the last five years. Treat that special someone to this gorgeous East-meets-West design.
