The holiday season is officially here. For those who have begun the task of gift planning, KingsHaven has created a something-for-everyone gift list. Created with your discerning friends and family members in mind, these gifts will help your loved ones live lives of beauty in that most sacred of spaces, home. Give them packages of joy that let them know their nest is worth the best in décor and that they mean the world to you.
Holiday Gift-giving List of Love:
1. KingHaven Style Box:
The KingsHaven Style Box would make an impeccable gift for new homeowners, your children’s teachers, or really anyone. Filled with luxury items from unique makers, the signature blue box is wrapped with aqua tissue and tied with an aqua satin ribbon.

The box contains the following: A cozy alpaca throw in a creamy ivory color, one of our lovely handmade ceramic hummingbird figurines, Victoria Hagan’s Interior Portraits coffee table book or another design book of a similar essence, Middle Kingdom's Bamboo vase in indigo with a celadon interior, a soy candle in a decorative container from Himalayan Candles, Globe Lamp, GreenTree Home tapered beeswax candles, glass candle holders from Creative Candles, and a mercury glass ball ornament for your glamorous Frasier Fir.
We can even ship this in 24 hours if you find yourself with too long a list of “to dos” this season and need a bit of help from KingsHaven’s happy-to-help team.
2. KingsHaven Hummingbirds:
Hummingbirds serve as a symbol of joy, peace, positivity, and, even sometimes, luck. Aside from their various special meanings, their small yet graceful presence and whimsical nature reminds us to forever seek the beauty in each day.
Made of handcrafted nickel wings and a hand-painted ceramic body, the KingsHaven Ocean Spray Hummingbird, Bands of Hope Hummingbird and Shady Cove Hummingbird represent a design find for the nature lover in your life. Just their monikers alone give way to a sense of tranquility and the sanctity of hope.

By gifting these to a friend or loved one, you are not only offering them a beautiful, handcrafted accent item to decorate their home, but also awarding them with a holiday keepsake that only the KingsHaven Hummingbirds can offer.
3. Viewpoint Island Blue Pillow:
Several bright shades of blue make up a deliciously mesmerizing pattern on this elegant pillow. The linen and silk used to produce the Viewpoint Island Blue Pillow features concentric, overlapping circles that will bring a modern mood to any living room.
The pillow is backed in a solid blue fabric and has a zipper for ease of cleaning. It would make a great gift for that friend who appreciates how much graphic prints can enliven décor.

After all, as our founder Lauren Wylonis says, colorful fabrics and textiles are an important addition to add uniqueness to any room or space.
Consider KingsHaven’s artisan-quality pillows for gifts for your parents or siblings. They’ll love their soft touch and understated beauty.
4. Ivory Alpaca Throw:
Super-soft and luxurious, the KingsHaven Ivory Alpaca Throw will instantly become the go-to for snuggling. No natural fiber comes close to alpaca for its various attributes of warmth, softness, durability, and lightness of weight. Alpaca wool is also naturally hypoallergenic, stain-resistant, and is gentle against the most sensitive skin.

This throw, made with heirloom quality that includes a pretty hem, is a wonderful gift for that person on your list who always says, "I don't need anything." That claim can't be true, because everyone needs a little luxury - and this throw supplies it.
Oh, and wouldn’t this be the perfect gift for your husband or beau? Of course it would, especially to keep him from taking your soft throw for himself on a cold winter’s eve!
5. KingsHaven Blue Turtle Figurines:
The organic allure of nature is improved upon with this hand-crafted turtle. An artful design, the figurine vividly displays hand-etched nickel and a blue ceramic shell flecked with orange and yellow. The turtle's blue eyes match the shell.

This delightful creature is tailor-made for your friend who keeps her desk as chic as if she worked at Vogue, even when her office is a spare bedroom. This turtle figurine will assure her that working from home has never been this glamorous.
6. Wooden Candle Tray:
Can’t function without a candle at day’s end? Neither can we. That's why we think this wooden candle tray from Himalayan Candles is the perfect gift for that multi-tasking friend who never gets a moment to herself (or himself!).
Hand-hewn from solid mango wood, this tray contains four wicks that allow for 60 hours of burn time. The candles were hand-poured using artisan techniques and a natural soy wax blend. The candles in this tray are available in the scents of grapefruit pine, tobacco bark or red currant, all created with high-quality essential and fragrance oils.

Wrap up one of these delightful candle gifts for your colleagues at the office, and see them smile with joy at your thoughtfulness.
7. KingsHaven Metrique Pendant:
Is someone on your gift list in the middle of a house makeover? Or, perhaps you know some new parents who are creating a modern nursery. KingsHaven’s Metrique Pendant would make a great gift for them, because it can be custom ordered in any stained or painted finish, making it as perfect for a dining room as it is for a nursery, depending on the color and finish.

A handcrafted light fixture, the KingsHaven Metrique Pendant has been lovingly created by master craftsmen. The contrast between the finishes is stunning, and this piece's geometric, abstract and modern underpinnings lend a trendy, sleek personality to any traditional, transitional or modern space. The Metrique is stocked in natural with the charred iron finish as a pendant, semi-flush or flush-mount.
8. Atwater Occasional Table:
Everyone has that friend who loves to lounge. She wishes every day was Saturday morning so she could stretch out in her favorite reading chair while wearing silk pajamas. To indulge this friend, we suggest gifting her the Atwater occasional table on which to set her book and a hot coffee or tea.

This lovely table has a hand-hammered artisan-crafted finish that exudes a subtle glamour. Sleekly designed, it easily accommodates a variety of spaces. It is available with a marble or wood top and a base made in charred iron, brushed brass or antique nickel. It is sure to be her favorite gift of the season!
9. Memphis Design Pottery from Middle Kingdom:
The Memphis Squiggle is having a moment, and the inventive potters at Middle Kingdom have been experiencing it. These Middle Kingdom vases, the voluptuous Elixer Rose and sleek Bamboo styles, are covered in a pattern of graphic squiggles inspired by Memphis Design, an artisan movement that originated in 1980s Milan, Italy. They are the perfect luxury gift for that art-appreciating friend who follows design movements.
Motivated by the legacy of design and craftsmanship in Chinese porcelain, Middle Kingdom designers Alison and Bo Jia create an array of styles from their Georgetown, D.C. workshop. Artisans then make their designs and hand-paint them in a kiln near the old imperial kilns in Jingdezhen, a historic porcelain-making hub in China.
We, at KingsHaven, have curated this very special pottery so you would not have to! It makes a most ideal gift for a neighbor, family and friends near or far, or gift it to yourself.

10. Victoria Hagan’s Interior Portraits:
Veranda magazine called Victoria Hagan, "…the reigning queen of restrained elegance," which is the perfect moniker for this American interior designer. Hagan is known for her serene "new American classic" style and her enthusiasts appreciate her tailored, minimalist approach. Her "less is more" philosophy is one to learn in this must-read design book for those who want to infuse their interiors with tasteful understatement.
Published by Rizzoli, this gorgeous coffee table book makes for a great reference to use as a guide to interiors. It's a perfect gift for the exacting hostess, your friend who always wants her home to be camera-ready for guests as well as for daily life.

KingsHaven offers more than 100 artisan-made light fixtures, and every single one of them can be customized to meet a project’s needs. Yet, one of our favorite kinds of lighting projects involves an innovative, first-of-its-kind light fixture- a pendant, sconce, chandelier, or other fixture that is entirely unique and begins from scratch. So, where does one begin?
