It's nearly Christmas, and if you’re reading this, you're probably scrambling to get all your shopping done. Don't panic! We've got some awesome last-minute gifts for you, so you can still have a happy holiday season.
accent pillows + throws
It's a stressful time of year for everyone, and if you're like us, you've got way too many things to do in too little time. That's why we love accent pillows and throw blankets as last-minute gifts. We have a nearly endless variety of them online and in store, and they're versatile enough that they can complement almost any décor style or colour palette.
Most importantly, they're easy for the recipient to use and enjoy. The good thing about accent pillows is that they don't have to be limited to living room couches or beds; you can use them as decorative accessories in other rooms of your home as well. And throw blankets work wonderfully for wrapping up on cool nights when you're not quite ready to turn on the heat yet.
vases + vase sets
Vases and vase sets are other excellent options. They can be used to add flair to either a traditional or contemporary space, so they work well for people who have just about any style. With so many options available, it’s easy to find something that matches your recipient’s taste!
Vases are great because they don't take up a lot of room, so they're easy to store when not in use. This makes them ideal for people who live in small apartments or condos. They'll look gorgeous on any shelf or table in their home! The best part about vases is that they're extremely versatile. You can use them as décor items or even as centerpieces at a party. They can also be used to display flowers, plants and other decorative elements around your home.
Vases are especially useful if you're travelling to visit someone, because they don't take up much space in your luggage or car, and they make wonderful gifts for whoever’s hosting! If you're looking for an affordable yet thoughtful present for anyone with an appreciation for artistry and design, a vase set is the perfect pick.
Decorative trays are another great gift idea, especially if you're shopping for someone who loves to entertain. They're a practical yet stylish way to serve food and drinks at parties or other gatherings.
Decorative trays can also be used to organize items on a desk or table, and they make wonderful gifts for people who have hobbies that involve crafting or DIY projects. For example, if someone has a collection of art supplies like paintbrushes or colored pencils, they'll love having them displayed in style on a decorative tray.
When shopping for a decorative tray, make sure that it has a large enough surface area for the items you want to display. For example, if someone has an office supplies collection, then they'll need something spacious enough to fit their papers and other items neatly.
Sculptures and decorative statues are ideal for adding a touch of personality to a room. They can be used to decorate shelves or tables and will make any space feel more inviting. For example, if someone has a bookshelf filled with novels, they'll love having an adorable sculpture sitting on top of it—it'll add some visual interest while also acting as a conversation piece.
It's important to know what type of person you're buying for. If they're a fan of sports, then they'll love getting a football or baseball-themed decorative item. If they're more into art, then why not get them something with an artistic theme.
Sculptures also work well in office spaces. They can add some colour to a workspace that might otherwise be drab and boring. For example, if someone has an office full of cubicles or desks with no partitions between each one, then a small sculpture would be perfect for them—they'll love having something fun in the middle of their workspace that everyone can enjoy.
If you know anyone who has trouble sleeping, then they’ll be thrilled by the gift of a new pillow. The extra support will help them get a better night’s rest and make it easier to wake up feeling refreshed in the morning.
Ashley has a wide selection of pillows, from brands like Tempur-Pedic, that will provide support while you sleep. These pillows are available in multiple sizes, so you can find one that fits their bed.
If you want to give the gift of comfort, then a new pillow is an excellent choice.
A gift card is the ultimate last-minute gift because it gives your recipient the opportunity to find something they love without any pressure on your part.
If they’re not sure what they want, a gift card will give them the opportunity to go shopping and find something that they need. These also work well for people who seem to already have everything they could ever want in their home.
