Do you have a lover of design on your nice list this year, or are you stuck on what to get the design connoisseur in your life? We’re here to help you find the perfect holiday gifts to complement their style and personality without needing to hang on to the gift receipt! Join us as we highlight our curated list of 5 Christmas gift ideas for the design lover in your life.
1. The Perfect Dining Table Displays
Classic island design isn’t always the first aesthetic that comes to mind when choosing holiday décor. However, we have curated some of our favorite touches to add holiday cheer to any island-style home. Amanda Lindroth’s home decor collection is the perfect combination of elegance and Island-inspired style to elevate your dining table this season!
We are in love with this gorgeous bamboo flatware set from the collection. Bring the Caribbean feel to family dinners this season with a fabulous coordinating set!
Another favorite of ours from the Lindroth collection is these island-wrapped hurricanes. This piece is not only a perfect addition to an island-style home but also incredibly versatile! Place your favorite holiday scented candle inside and watch the shadows cast a beautiful pattern on a dining table, or use a variety of sizes to display your favorite florals to greet guests with an elegant entryway. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
2. Functional décor
Looking for simple staples for a design lover’s home that are equally as fun to display as they are to read and great conversation pieces? Three words: coffee table books. Affordable and easy to find online or in your local bookstore, a coffee table book is a gift with a personal touch that adds fun, style, and culture to any home. We’ve linked some of our favorites below!

3. Edible Gift Giving
The holidays can be stressful, and nothing says “thinking of you” like a bit of luxury. Through the craziness of shopping, cooking, and celebrating with family, any busy homeowner deserves a break. Our suggestion? Decadent chocolates, and maybe a little wine!
These gourmet chocolates from Williams Sonoma are beautiful to look at and even better to taste.
Williams Sonoma also offers one of our favorite kitchen appliances: the Üllo Florence Wine Decanter and Purifier. This handy tool is essential for the wine lover in your life! The crystal decanter has a pleasing spherical shape that complements any style of kitchen. The purifier restores the natural taste of wine by removing sulfites and sediments from your favorite rosés, reds, or whites. Plus, it holds a standard bottle of wine.
Wine technology isn’t limited to purifying; if you have a tech junkie in your house, we have some fantastic gift ideas that will modernize your home and add some fun to your daily routine!
The Plum automatic wine dispenser available from Williams Sonoma is compact enough to sit on your kitchen counter or add a fun, modern touch to your home bar. It holds a standard wine bottle and chills your chosen vintage to the perfect serving temperature every time. It also functions as a “virtual sommelier” and offers information about the exact wine you’re drinking. To add to the fun features, you can connect your phone to the dispenser via Bluetooth to learn even more about the wine-making process!
4. Tech-y Aesthetics for the Home
If wine technology isn’t what you’re looking for, we have a gift that will satisfy even the toughest tech lover. These portable Bluetooth Speakers from Marshall sell out fast, and for good reason; they offer 20+ hours of playtime, 360° sound, and a variety of colors and styles. Modern functionality with a hip retro vibe!
5. WFH Office Essentials
Working from home has become the new norm for many of us over the past few years. While being able to conduct Zoom meetings in your pajama pants is a plus, we have a few gift ideas to make life easier for anyone working from their house. Whether working at home full or part-time, you deserve a comfortable and functional workspace.
This minimalist desk lamp from DWR is delicate enough to stay out of the way on your desk and offers a holding tray for reading glasses, paper clips, and any other small supplies you may need. It features a fully rotational arm and an energy-efficient bulb. It also arrives fully assembled, so no set-up headache!
Sitting at a screen or desk all day is hard on the back, and we at Lagnappe Interiors understand that struggle all too well. Our solution? The Aeron Chair from Herman Miller. This chair is the ultimate ergonomic office chair, featuring an iconic design that adjusts to match your personal working style. This design includes breathable fabric backing, adjustable height and armrests, padding for lumbar support, and three different chair sizes because we all know one size doesn’t fit all. We really love the color choices, because not everyone wants yet another black office chair.
These are just a few of our personal favorites to fill out any design lover’s gift list. As these next few weeks get busier, we wanted to ensure our readers are prepared for gift giving. We hope you leave with plenty of inspiration, and we can’t wait to see your holiday styles for the upcoming season. Keep an eye out for our upcoming posts about all things design!
