Give The Gift That Says..."YOU ARE APPRECIATED"
Gift-giving season is here, and the holidays are the optimal time to seek new treasures for loved ones and, just as importantly, for yourself. It is a season of togetherness, reflection, and a celebration for all that is truly special. An often stressful time, the need to step back and create space for renewal is vital—and the perfect way to do that is indulge in gifts made with exceptional artistry. As we’re always on the hunt for the rare and beautiful, our Holiday Gift Guide is a curated list of our favorite gifts that make for both a delightful present and an indelible gesture of appreciation.
1. Silk Pajamas – Soho Home
The best way to pamper yourself on a long-awaited day off starts with a sumptuous silk pajama. Soho Home’s pure silk pajamas exemplify luxury comfort. The oversized fit and Art Nouveau-inspired patterned design add a dash of style to your at-home rituals, from your morning coffee to your nighttime glass of wine.
We are drawn to the floral motifs that were originally hand-painted by the Soho House design team using watercolors. The naturally hypoallergenic pajamas are thoughtfully detailed with a chest pocket embroidered with the Soho House logo, piping, and mother-of-pearl buttons. Inspired by Soho House in Rome, Italy, these pajamas evoke a pure sense of luxury.
2. Fragrance – Jo Malone
Ever since founder Jamie Williams spent an unforgettable time living abroad in London, it has become a city that is dear to the Elysian brand. As scents connect us to memories, Jo Malone’s fragrance offerings were one of the many pieces of London that left an impression.
The brand is synonymous with British lifestyle, with each scent designed to be layered with another to create a distinguishable signature fragrance. Jamie's favorite fragrance is Sea Salt and Wood Sage which Jo Malone describes as a "crunchy nature of sea salt that brings both texture and a sense of freshness, while the sage base note is woody with earthy, aromatic tones that bring a natural depth". She loves the combination of layering this scent with Poppy and Barley, reminiscent of England's meadows. "A lively floral scent, enhanced by rose and violet and topped with juicy blackcurrants".
3. Candles – Elysian Collective’s AIREDELSUR
The steady flame of an aromatic candle makes for the perfect home ambiance from the brightest parts of the day to the slow close of night. Made from natural soy wax, our AireDelSur candles are chicly designed and richly scented with our Cardamomo, Rosa Negra, and Tabaco options. They're handmade in small batches to guarantee quality and care, without synthetic fragrances, paraffin, or palm oil.
Naturally sourced ingredients allow a clean burn that enhances your environment without any toxins. The subtle fragrances delight the senses, which are born of the materials that nature offers us.
4. Self Care – Alo Yoga Magnesium Reset Spray
For an on-the-go lifestyle, moments of reset and restoration are of the utmost importance. The Alo Yoga Magnesium Reset Spray is a body mist packed with magnesium, valerian, and other aromatherapy-infused antioxidants that work to soothe and hydrate the skin and soul.
Made clean, the formula applies topically delivering minerals to reset a stressed body and mind. Powered by nature's potent botanicals, it's naturally fragranced with mandarin orange, rice milk, and calming botanical oils.
5. Spa Experience – Marmara Park Avenue, NYC
When something tangible isn’t what you have in mind, gifting an experience is all the more memorable. While on a trip to Turkey, founders Jamie and Michael Brown experienced the holistic rejuvenation of the hammam baths in Istanbul—a centuries-old cultural tradition that creates harmony among the mind, body, and soul.
The wellness retreat at the Marmara Park Avenue hotel in New York City brings a similar sense of relaxation, evoking the purifying hammam rituals in a bathing room inspired by the practice. This experience will immediately transport you, mind and body.
6. Towels - Elysian Collective’s Turkish Towels
Bring the hammam home and elevate your everyday rituals with our 100% cotton Turkish Towels. A practical and luxurious gift, the spa-day-worthy towels are handmade with the coziest cotton that, with each use, will always feel soft to the touch. A home staple that will get lots of love, the towels also feature modernly intricate patterns that further beautify the spaces they inhabit.
7. Body Care - Sunday Riley
A shimmery body oil is often associated with sunkissed, summertime skin, but we find it to be just as essential in the winter since it is supercharged with Vitamin C and CoQ10.
Sunday Riley’s Fairy Godmother Body Oil nourishes the skin with antioxidants and leaves it gleaming with radiance. It’s the perfect last step to add some glow after a bath or a great way to shine with luminosity at all the upcoming holiday parties.
8. Glassware - Elysian Collective’s May Collection Champagne Glasses
Our newly released May Collection Champagne Glasses are truly functional art pieces. It is a classic champagne glass with a modern silhouette. Adorned with a timeless vintage touch, the handmade glasses are made from quality Czech-sourced borosilicate glass.
The glasses are an elegant way to sip on your favorite bubbly after a long day or toast to your companions around the holiday table. Stylish champagne glasses are a must for the holiday season!
9. Japanese Matcha Tea Set – Tea Dealers
As we all know a matcha lover (or may be one ourselves), a Japanese Matcha Tea Set is the perfect gift that provides both inner peace and nourishment. Tea ceremonies, a tradition dating back centuries, is innately philosophical. The ritual’s significance prompts mindfulness and intention, making it a perfect way to start the day with a clear mind.
The set contains a whisk, tea scoop, ceramic bowl, and green tea powder; all components essential to the ritual. Mainly served to friends, family, and associates, Jamie and Michael experienced the hospitality of the ceremony during their travels to Kyoto, Japan and have great respect for the tradition.
10. Elysian Collective Gift Card
For those on your list who seek the unique, exciting and exceptional, an Elysian gift card will guarantee them something special–just on their own accord!
From textiles to glassware, every piece in the Elysian catalog holds significance that will inspire the senses of your loved ones, opening them up to a world of artful delights.
