Thoughtful gift ideas for the early Holiday planner

MINNA’s unofficial gift guide for the early planner by Cate Collins, Retail Manager.

Are you the early bird of the family? We are right there with you. It’s never too early to start prepping for the holidays. Avoid the rush and focus on your loved ones by crossing off some holiday shopping early. Need some help? We have rounded up some thoughtful gift ideas just for you!

Dining Bundle

Stumped on what to get your friend? Let us do the heavy lifting for you – pick up one of our Dining Bundles. With three different curated looks from Understated to Harvest, you’re sure to find one to fit your friend’s home. Each set contains a runner, placemats and napkins with options for 2, 4, and 6 place settings. The perfect gift for someone looking to start building (or refreshing!) their dining collection.

A Mug + Their Favorite Coffee / Tea

For the friend who loves their daily coffee ritual, give them a new handcrafted mug and some beans from their favorite coffee shop. Handmade in Mexico City, Marvilla’s Cappuccino Cups make the perfect vessel for morning coffee (or evening tea) rituals. A practical but still thoughtful gift, your friend is sure to thank you for keeping them caffeinated throughout the new year.

P.S. Not sure where to get those beans from? Try out a local coffee shop. We really love the coffee selection at Hudson Roastery, Supernatural + Kitty’s in Hudson!

Matching Aprons

For your partner or best friend, pick up two of our new Meridian Aprons–one for you and one for them. Matching aprons make the chore of cooking dinner a bit more fun! Even if you don’t live together, having a piece of clothing that ties you to your friend or partner whether they’re in the next room over or across the country can keep you feeling connected when you’re missing them.

Three Tier Basket

Our Three Tier Basket is the perfect gift for someone looking for more organization in their life. We love to use this in any room in our homes from kitchen to bathroom. The basketry is made by bending a flexible wood and then weaving the Jonote fiber to create the structure. Handmade in Puebla, Mexico, this basket is equally functional and stylish.
