4 Hostess Gift Ideas

Flowers or wine are a nice thought, but imagine the look of delight when you bring your hostess a gift she can use throughout the holiday season! Art Van Furniture’s Wonderland Holiday Collection offers unique pieces that are sure to please. Here are four items that will make you the favorite guest at the next event:

A copper-plated stainless steel ice bucket will be a welcome and useful gift. Dress it up by placing a potted succulent inside. Your hostess can set it out for display, or use it immediately to enhance the gathering!

Celebrate your host with a holiday toast—and a pair of these wine glasses by kate spade new york. Pair with a nice bottle of wine or put a bow on the stem and present them alone.

A holiday accent is always a fun gift to receive, and these winter reindeer are dressed to impress. Gift your hostess one, two or all three, and watch the smile light up her face.

The farmhouse trend has made birdcages super chic, and this handcrafted holiday decoration would be a wonderful hostess gift. A perfect accent for a kitchen or entryway, the rustic touch is quaint and festive.

Have Yourself an Eclectic Little Christmas


The holiday season is all about peace and harmony, so what better way to display those sentiments (literally) than by highlighting eclectic styles that can really work a room?

Eclectic was a big trend our buyers saw earlier this year at High Point Market. And from what we can tell, it’s a trend that’s going to be around for quite some time. So what exactly qualifies as “eclectic?” Well, pretty much everything! This style hinges on being able to bring styles together in a way that was once considered taboo. For example, take a rustic dining table and hang a crystal chandelier above it (it’ll be ok, Grandma).

The key to making it all work is picking elements that offer similar colors and finishes. Meaning you can take the casual dark brown, leather sofa from Cindy Crawford’s Chastain Collection and pair it with the vibrant lime green color of a contemporary accent chair. Since the chair has a dark brown finish on its arms and legs, it ties in with the color of the sofa. The green color also complements the shades found in the toss pillows.

For a slightly more polished look, grab the Gino sofa from our exclusive Roma Collection and have it sit for a spell next to an accent chair covered in a muted tan, leopard print.

Natural materials like exotic woods and metals paired with smoky grays and elegant neutrals are also a great way to play up the eclectic trend — and don’t forget about pieces that feature raw or distressed wood.

Stop by one of our “homes” to see how we’re decorating our atriums the eclectic way. With a few quirky touches here and there, your home will be simply irresistible — just in time for the holidays!
