From pretty kitchen accessories to fancy potpourri, interior designer Armina Kasprowicz shares gifts perfect for homebodies
Up your hors d’oeuvres game when you serve tasty holiday treats on this etuHOME White Mod pumpkin charcuterie board, which is made from reclaimed wood and has oak slates to prevent warping. (It’s also finished with food-safe wax to prevent cracks.) If you think it’s too pretty to cover with snacks, it makes for festive kitchen décor.
Cooking for a crowd this fall? “Feed your People: Big-Batch, Big-Hearted Cooking and Recipes to Gather Around” (Powerhouse Books) features global-inspired recipes designed for up to 20 people, from tamales and minestrone soup to paella and Texas sheet cake. It’s a great gift for someone who plans to spend a lot of time in the kitchen this winter.
Who doesn’t want to come home to a delicious-smelling house? Treat your nose to Pot-pourri Forêts by Christian Tortu, which will remind you of a forest with its scents of pine-tree needles, cedar wood and fresh-cut grass.
The warm colors of this hand-dyed Marigold Linen dish towel from Anthropologie — which can conveniently double as a napkin — will brighten up any kitchen this fall.
This Dora Maar pedestal bowl by Jonathan Adler makes a beautiful gift that looks fantastic with different floral arrangements. I’d fill it with autumn branches, brown pine spray and thistle spray from Detroit Garden Works.
