THE QUIET MOOSE
Christmas gift guide
Our perfect Christmas stocking is one that’s filled with lots of little luxuries, some just for us to savor all to ourselves, and some for our homes that we can enjoy with family and guests for many years to come. So whether you’re looking for a gift for a budding cook or something slightly indulgent for someone special, there will be more than a thing or two to help with your search in The Quiet Moose gift guide.
A collection of gifts for the more classically attuned home. Sometimes it can be tricky to know exactly what you’re looking for until you’ve found it. At The Quiet Moose you can find a little of this, and a little of that, but all within the traditional style, for friends and family who prefer the reassuring, the classical and the everlasting.
For contemporary souls
Go for gifts that are slightly minimal and with a bit of an edge, like our Vita Copenhagen Lighting Collection. Wondrous and graceful! These lamp shades have a profusion of hand-applied feathers that delicately diffuses light while imparting an irresistible organic texture. Illuminated from within, the luxurious assemblage casts a warm, reassuring glow to any setting. Our contemporary interior gifts are all about homes that, and individuals who, are a little bit ‘cool’.
For soothing souls
Candles and diffusers are always on our Christmas list. Pillar, tea light, scented, we love them all because no matter how often you light a candle or use a diffuser, it will always create calmness and a pocket of peace. We like to have them in every room of the home, particularly in the bathroom.
Because every cook and every baker feels joy when their delicious goods are served upon the most elegant trays, plates, and stands. A new set of tableware to replace the one you’ve fallen out of love with; a set of twinkling-new glassware for cocktails, champagne, or a fine wine; an endlessly elegant serving platter that will elevate deliciously, home-baked goods served upon it. These are gifts for those who are the happiest cooking and munching with family and friends.
For party people
We all have friends and family members who love nothing more than to host dinner parties, impromptu get-togethers, and parties to celebrate absolutely anything. Whether you get a few of our blue dot wine glasses or splurge and buy somebody the whole Icy Pine Collection (which encompasses red and white wine glasses, stemless red wine glasses, martini glasses, champagne glasses, a carafe, and a large bowl) or you pick just one or two of the more novel pieces, they’re sure to be used on Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and beyond.
For bed worshippers
If you know a certain someone who loves to lie in bed on the weekend, or perhaps someone who deserves to lie in but never quite gets to enjoy it properly, getting a gift that will make every moment in their dreamy bed can be a very kind gesture.
Our pick: the seagrass tray. Not only can this elegant tray be used to serve drinks and small bites, it’s the perfect piece that allows them to enjoy breakfast in bed. Or go one step further and treat them to some luxurious cotton bed linen sets.
For those who feel the cold
Have you ever noticed how some people are always cold? The heater can be on, the fire can be roaring but they’ll still be sporting several layers, and their fingers and toes are always cold. A gift like a luxurious throw that says indulging warmth will certainly be well-received by them, or perhaps by someone who likes to stay wrapped up and snug.
For those who need ‘me time’
One of the things that we hear so many people long for in the home is the humble armchair. And by this, we don’t mean an armchair to be used as an extra, necessary seat in the living room, but the supplementary kind that we might not use all that often, but we get such comfort knowing it’s there. The bedroom armchair, the corner of a study armchair, the armchair that’s set somewhere separate in the home that you can use as a little place to escape to with a blanket, a book, and some well-deserved ‘me time’. It’s a bit of a large gift, and one that’s not exactly going to be gift-wrapped, but it’s the loveliest thing to give to a partner or a cherished (and very lucky) friend, because it’s extravagant, unexpected, and shows them just how well you know them.
