Whether you’re visiting someone’s home or celebrating a recent move, a personal and thoughtful gift is always appreciated. Here are a few of my favorite ideas:
A white flowering plant in an attractive container. I especially like white orchids, which always look “fresh” and tend to last. Presenting a planted orchid in a cachepot makes for a complete gift.
Food gifts, such as a basket with artisanal crackers and cheeses, a jar of sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, and cornichons make for a complete appetizer tray.
A neutral throw complements any room or interior. These can be placed at the end of a bed or draped over a chair to embellish and soften a new space. At CMFTO, we love to gift our clients throws by SFERRA, an Italian brand specializing in everyday luxury.
A thoughtful accessory that adds a splash of color. A hand-blown vase, colorful barware, or a lacquered tray are all fun, unexpected gifts that complete any interior.
Housewarming or hostess gifts that are meant to be enjoyed right away (read: croissants!) and those that last for years are always a lovely way to mark a new home or special occasion.
