8 Last Minute Gifts That Are Better Than a Gift Card

It doesn't matter that Christmas is at the same time each year, it always seems to sneak up on us. We want the gifts we give to our loved ones to be meaningful, and although we're sure to purchase last minute presents, that doesn't mean they have to be less thoughtful!

We pulled together a (last minute) holiday gift guide for those last minute presents.

1. Custom Serving Boards $45-$100

These handcrafted serving boards are fabricated from walnut and ash wood. Their sizes and color vary, so you won't find another like it.

2. Throw Blankets $55-$85

'Tis the season for all things cozy, and these throw blankets are sure to keep you warm.

3. Custom Mahogony Tray $390

Handcrafted and one-of-a-kind, this mahogany wood tray has a smooth finish measuring at 27" x 19." Equipped with side handles, this tray is not just an accessory--it's a stunning detail complementing any design style.

5. Artwork Crafted by Local Artisans

We've curated a collection of art from local artisans, and for most of us at the studio, the art we have at home is our prized possessions.

We recently discovered paper cut artwork by Kindred and Carved. The Great Lake art pieces we had made are custom framed, matted, and ready to be placed in a home. Prices range from $250-$285 each.

For access to our full collection, visit our online gallery.

6. Enzo Vases $15-$18

At Napa Home and Garden, each piece is handcrafted by an artisan and an original. These accessories are for decorative use only, and do not hold water.

7. Grey Onyx Bookends $150

All of Noir products are hand finished and designed for environmental sustainability. The simplicity in this natural product emphasizes the beauty of these bookends.

8. Books

We're taught not to judge a book from the outside, but can we make an exception for these? We promise the pages are just as endearing. Plus, what's easier to wrap than a book?

Do you see the perfect gift? Chat with our purchasing team at retail@viadesign-inc.com and they'll make sure you have it wrapped and under the tree.
