1Black Ivy: A Revolt In Style
A coffee table book is always a great choice and your stylish friend who loves a New York Magazine The Cut think piece is definitely going to appreciate Black Ivy: A Revolt in Style by Jason Jules and Graham Marsh. Named one of the Best Books of 2021 by The Financial Times, and continuing to build up a cult following, this book beautifully explores how Black culture adopted the Ivy League look and made it their own. The bold cover, with a beautiful image of Miles Davis, is fit for display and hints at the collection of iconic imagery you’ll find in this book. As all coffee table books should be, it’s an elegant conversation starter that anyone would appreciate as a gift!
2L’Objet Oh Mon Dieu! Incense Holder
Cool, sultry, high design home decor brand L’Objet is often a go-to for the interior set. Not your standard incense holder, the parted lips in Limoges porcelain (some of the best in the world and where Hermes porcelain is kilned) adds a pop art feature to an entryway or side table. At roughly the size of a printed photo, it’s discreet but eye-catching enough to turn heads!
3Apotheke 3-Wick Jar Candle
Another option for the cognoscenti home owner is a go-to housewarming gift, the candle. But, to take it to that next level, consider a three-wick option with a luxe makeup. Consider options with soy, hand poured wax with high-grade perfume fragrance or essential oils. A three-wick candle usually burns much longer and this one from Apotheke, a Brooklyn based home fragrance brand, will give you around 120 hours of burn time. While all of Apotheke’s blends are carefully curated for a housewarming gift, we’re suggesting this fresh scent of linen, musk and lily of the valley that smells like a boutique luxury hotel!
4S Juststart Wine Decanter with built in aerator pourer
This decanter makes a great gift for a friend that’s a recent wine enthusiast. They don’t have everything but they’re the first one you call when you want a great glass of wine after work. They have the wine shop’s weekly suggestion at the ready. Add to their growing hobby with this classic decanter style with a built in double filter aerator for a beautiful red. This decanter saves the time of letting the wine breathe – it’s ready to drink 3 or so minutes after pouring! The beautiful shape the wine makes in the decanter during the pouring process is pretty mesmerizing!
5Luka porcelain espresso cup with saucer and metal stand
As you loved our Nespresso machine suggestion for the coffee aficionado in the last housewarming gift guide, we thought you might really enjoy a natural pairing with these LUKA ceramic espresso mugs. Perfectly evoking those cute coffee shop vibes your friend raves about from her time overseas, help the new homeowner in your life bring a little of that buzz to their abode! The stackable style and metal rack makes for easy storage though the modern design. The wooden coasters make leaving these on the coffee bar an appealing choice. In a set of four, they’re perfect for those brunches with the crew!
6Homearay Glass Food Storage Containers
You know you’re full on adulting when you get excited by storage containers. Chances are, your home owning friend feels the same way. For your friend who loves gazing into precise celebrity pantries these eco friendly and chic Homearay glass food storage containers are a great and practical gift! BPA- free glass jars are ideal for food storage and organization. The round bamboo cork closure that still manages to seal makes the container truly unique. It’s honestly the kind of gift that your friend will get the most use of and continue to buy more! This set of four gives you a great start, and design friendly beginning!
7The Harlem Candle Company Nightclub Map of Harlem Candle in Langston
OK! We thought we’d sneak in one more candle on the list. This two-wick candle from The Harlem Candle Company is from a Black woman owned business founded in 2014. Travel and lifestyle expert Teri Johnson celebrates the love of Harlem, Jazz and fragrance. Sound like anyone you know? Scents like Langston with its tobacco and amber call to mind the sumptuous leathers and fine cigars of a Harlem Renaissance Jazz Club and is a heady masculine scent. Does your friend have an in-home bar display? This beautiful jar, a black and white map of jazz clubs in Harlem is a work of art on its own.
2Pampered By Porsha Luxurious Sheet Set
You’ve seen her on reality TV, but you may not have heard about Porsha Williams’ bedding collection, Pampered by Porsha. It is designed with you and mind and offers premier sheets made from super soft, double-brushed microfiber. There are 14 colors to choose from for any size bed. (We chose the luxurious burgundy here, perfect for a luxurious California king-sized bed.) The four-piece set includes a flat and fitted sheet and two pillowcases. The guarantee is that your sheet set will be breathable, high quality, stain resistant, and easily washable.
9Sister.ly Drinkware Diamond Decanter Set
Another beautiful decanter is on our list, this one from Chicago-based Black-owned Sister.ly Drinkware. This diamond cut whiskey / bourbon decanter set would shine on any bar display. The set comes with one decanter, four glasses and six marble chilling stones. While not crystal, the pieces are very sturdy and dishwasher safe making for easy clean up after those whiskey tasting nights.
10Dash Line African Mudcloth Pillow Cover
Whether in a mid-century modern style living room or a Moroccan style office, African mudcloth is a beautiful design addition. It can serve as a beautiful neutral ripe with heritage. Handmade on the continent, shipping from North Carolina, the unique variations on each of these pieces make them all the more special.
