Gift shopping for the interiors enthusiast is a tricky task. Individual taste can be so particular, and I speak from my own experience when I say that decor gifts end up hidden in a closet just as often as they're put on display. Yet at the same time, the scented candle go-to gets pretty tired, pretty quickly. Is it possible to strike a balance between a unique and guaranteed to please? I think so, and it lies at the cross section of playful, handmade, and smaller than a bread box.
Because really, everyone has room in their home for unusual yet unobstrusive pieces. Think artwork that won't require a remix of existing arrangements, global stools and pillows petite enough to slip into current vignettes, and textured ceramics that can go from tabletop to styled shelf in a pinch. Bonus points if your gift does some good in the process (sales from M.Montague's Moroccan poufs and pillows help fund arts education for underpriviledged girls). If all else fails, an interior design book gives your recipient inspiration for the new year, so you can volunteer the gift of your time to move furniture!
