It’s the time of year again for holiday shopping. If you want to give a gift that will be appreciated all year long, rest assured another gift card, flowers or a lone bottle of wine isn’t the right choice. But a treasured keepsake, beautiful piece of art, useful items for the kitchen, and home furnishings are. Whether you’re looking for a corporate gift, meaningful present for a close friend, or something in between, here are the decor gifts that will make a big impact this holiday season.
Italic Zest Cookware Set
Cookware can be an expensive gift, but that doesn’t mean it has to be. Italic’s Zest Cookware Set is manufactured in the same factory as Calphalon and All-Clad for a fraction of the cost. Made from triple-ply stainless steel and coated with eco-friendly ceramic, it has everything most home chefs need including a frying pan, saucepan, sauté pan, stockpot, and lids.
If the name Italic sounds familiar, it’s because they are best known for their handbags, which are made in the same factories as Christian Dior, Celine, and MCM among others.
This year, Italic nailed the home decor game launching bedding, towels, and candle lines, all made in the same factories as some of the other top names in decor including Le Labo, Calvin Klein, and Frette.
