Feeling a little stumped and running low on time? Don't worry, that's why we're here! We've scoured the internet for unique gift ideas so you don't have to do all the legwork. Read on for ten unforgettable gift ideas that will surely amaze in 2022 – enjoy shopping!
SMEG Kitchen Appliances
SMEG is one of the trendiest and aesthetically pleasing kitchen appliance brands out there! Maybe you know someone who has already started their SMEG appliance collection or maybe you know someone who's interior design style they'd match perfectly! We can't imagine anyone who wouldn't be thrilled to receive one of the beauties!
Coffee Table Books
Coffee table books are one of those things that everyone loves and wants, but building a collection can get expensive pretty quickly! For that reason, we think it to be a great gift- especially for those who have recently moved into a new home! Amazon has many of the classic favorites like the Tom Ford and Architectural Digest books! If you're looking for something more unique, check out Urbana's selection at one of their Valley locations! Whether it's a nightstand, bookshelf, or side table that needs dressing up, coffee table books are perfect for that!
Temperature Control Smart Mug
Ever had a sip of cold coffee? We've all been there, and I think we can all agree it's a less than pleasant experience. Want to make sure your loved one never has to experience the disappointment of a cold cup of coffee again? Be the solution this holiday season and gift that special someone a Ember Temperature Controlled Smart Mug! This will quickly become one of those things they never knew how they went so long without!
Breville Espresso Maker
While this one is quite the splurge, if you're looking to give the ultimate gift to the coffee enthusiast in your life this is it! Breville espresso makers are arguably the most popular at-home espresso makers on the market, and you can find them at your local Crate and Barrel! They're aesthetically built and allow you to have a coffee shop style beverage at home!
If you have an avid entertainer in your life, a charcuterie board is surely the perfect gift! They probably already own one, but if you host often then you know that you can never have too many! Urbana is one of our favorite stores to shop for unique charcuterie boards; some of which are even Arizona inspired!
You can never go wrong when gifting a candle! Who doesn't love good smells and the cozy warm light of a candle? Check out The Owens Collective shop for Arizona inspired scents or visit Candle Chemistry (now open in Scottsdale, Peoria, and Gilbert) where you can create your very own special blend!
Baking Class Experience
We love the idea of giving an experience! Local favorite, JL Patisserie hosts a variety of baking classes every month where you can learn to make French classics like macarons, eclairs, and croissants! Whether they're a pro baker or just up for a new learning experience with a delicious outcome, we think a baking class can be a whole lot of fun!
Especially during the holidays, tabletop games are essential for get-togethers so why not gift one! CB2 has some of the most luxurious tabletop games we've ever seen! From dominos, to CLUE, and even Jenga, they've managed to make them as stylish as possible! Connect 4- but make it classy please!
Goodbye to the days where speakers are big chunky eye sores! There are so many great and gorgeous music speaker options out there! If you're looking for something practical the Marshall speaker is a beautiful piece to display and bring music into your home!
Like candles, we feel that throw blankets are another one of those things that you can just never have too many of! Of course, we have to make an honorable mention of our favorite- Barefoot Dreams. For those who aren't familiar with the brand, they make the most heavenly blankets we've ever experienced! It's no surprise why these have even become a celebrity favorite!
