THE WINE LOVER
We all know this bubbly individual. They love a party- especially with good company and a good bottle of vino. So make them smile with a wine related gift! Wine chiller bags and bottle stoppers are best offered with their favorite flavor vintage. Wine glass sets are perfect for the wine lover who loves to share, while a wine rack is ideal for showing off those beautiful bottles.

Some ladies are natural hostesses. They love to be the center of the party… as the one making sure everyone else is having a wonderful time! The hostess appreciates anything that helps her make her fete a success. Barware and serving sets are ideal gifts, as they allow all the hostess’ guests to eat and drink to their hearts’ content. Chip & dip sets or lovely carafes mean the party goers can serve themselves, while the hostess joins the fun. And, as an extra thank you, try candles to scent her home, or a sparkly bauble that lets her feel beautiful as she worries about everyone else!

THE SUNSHINE FAN
You know that person who can’t stand a grey day? They positively live for spring to come again, so they can get back outside. The best gifts for these sunshine lovers is anything that reminds them of their favorite season! Flip flop trinket dishes are pleasant reminders of springtime year-round. Green fish bottle stoppers, ocean blue glass bottles or a precious decorative turtle add warm weather whimsy to their home. From a driftwood mirror to a bright patterned bench, it’s a colorful, natural touch that will charm this outdoorsy type.

THE EXOTIC ENTHUSIAST
This person is an adventurer at heart. They love anything unique, textured, and of course, exotic. The best gifts for these individuals are those that feel one-of-a-kind, and speak of a far off land. Sake sets feature beautiful colors and patterns, and encourage trying new flavors. For decor, seek items made from rich hardwoods, like teak candlesticks and carved art. For those lovers of the exotic who also like a twist of kitsch, tiki gifts are ideal. They are quintessential mid-mod while featuring bamboo and wood details reminiscent of foreign lands. Any gift that feels straight out of an antique bazaar is perfect for the exotic enthusiast.

Bookworms love nothing more than curling up with good book. A gift of books to a book lover is always an appreciated choice. However, try breaking the mold with unique, unexpected titles! Assouline Publishing offers insightful books on singular subjects not found anywhere else. Or, try a set of vintage bookends to let them show off their favorite tomes in style. And, for the book fanatic who has everything, try a gift that helps them relax while they dive into one of their old favorites. A fun pillow, fuzzy throw blanket, or even a cozy chair and ottoman create a haven for the bookworm to burrow into and get lost in the pages.

MEN MEN MEN
Many of our earlier gifts ideas are perfect for the women and men on your gift giving list. However, there are some gift ideas that are simply made for men. So if you have a dapper fellow in your life, consider a cool, vintage find to show them you care. For the dashing “man about town”, try fashionable cufflinks, or even a slick flask to slip in their pocket. For the stay at home type you can’t go wrong with a poker set, masculine moose head wall decor, or a super retro chair for kicking back in style. Industrial finds suit a rough, tough type, while minimalistic decor like a deco clock appeal to a sleeker sort of guy. Men may be the hardest to shop for, but with these clever gift ideas you can’t go wrong!
