Guest Blogger Shannon: Live Inspired Holiday Gift Guide 2014

Are you thinking about that Christmas wish list? You know the one we’re talking about; it’s a mile long, filled with names of family members, co-workers, teachers and babysitters. It has every one under the sun on it, and likely a few of them have question marks next to their names. Thankfully, Home Outfitters has something for everyone on your list, no matter how difficult you think they are to buy for!

The Impossible-To-Buy-For Husband

Whether his favourite beverage is coffee or wine, this year’s gift guide has your guy covered. For the red wine enthusiast, we love the Conundrum Aerator Decanter ($34.99). The twisted design is both stylish, making it a piece that you’ll be happy to display on the counter or bar cart, and is functional! As wine pours in and out, it goes over the smooth curves, which helps to oxygenate the wine, improving the flavor and aroma!


If you want to really dazzle him, the Nespresso VirtuoLine bundle ($349.99) is sure to sparkle under the tree. You can brew a classic Nespresso or a long cup of coffee in just a minute, bringing the true coffee house experience to every morning in your own home. It comes complete with the frother, making it even easier to brew that perfect caramel macchiato or cappuccino!  14-11-13_HO_10_Live_Holiday_Inspired

The A-List Teacher

A small gesture of thanks during the holidays can go a long way in the eyes of a teacher. We like to think out of the box when it comes to teacher appreciation gifts, so the classic Corksicle wine chiller ($24.99) is an excellent option. Pair it with a bottle of local wine, or a gift card for your recipient to select their own favorite, and you have the perfect, unique gift of appreciation!

There are two really stand out items on the Live Inspired gift guide that are sure to put a smile on her face!

The octagonal shape and metallic finish will make it is a beautiful piece to display appetizers on for holiday gatherings.

If you’re headed for dinner at your future (or current) inlaws home, bringing a lovely bottle of wine is always a great gesture. Imagine their delight when you display that beautiful bottle of wine in the Faux Fur wine bag ($14.99). So lovely and wintery in its design! 


The Babysitter or Day Care Providor


Is your little one a budding Picasso or Matisse? Display a piece of their original artwork in one of the gorgeous Museum of Modern Art Frank Lloyd Wright picture frames ($34.99), then wrap with plain kraft paper and tie with ribbon and bows. Whether you choose a wooden or metal frame, the MOMA Frank Lloyd Wright designs are stunning and will be cherished for years to come.

A Little Something for You

The holidays are a perfect reason to tuck a little something for yourself under the tree. If you love having the girls over for some yummy food and delicious wine, wrap up the Gourmet du village brie baker ($18.99) or the Gluckstein Home catering glassware ($39.95).  wine

If you’re craving something a little warmer, slightly more luxurious (and heck, we think you deserve it!) tie a big bow around one of our gorgeous Faux fur throws ($69.99). Don’t forget to act surprised at your lovely gift on Christmas morning!
