The Home Depot


For your friend with the neatnik kitchen

A utensil pot that’s legitimately pretty enough to also be used as a vase.

Biscuit Home


For your midweek cocktail buddy

We think olive-adorned cocktail napkins pair especially well with holiday martinis. And this happy-hour-minded friend is bound to concur.

For the coffee fiend

There are those who love coffee, and then there are those who grind their own fair trade beans before brewing in a ceramic coffee press. This chick is the latter.

For the friend who thinks of everything

Beat her at her own game of detail-oriented-ness with an ever-so-tasteful linen tissue box cover.
