Who doesn’t love receiving a gift that sparkles? Diamonds aren’t the only things that can do that, you know. Mirror is the more affordable alternative for those of us who want to add sparkle and beauty to the Christmas season. Below are a few gift ideas for Mom, Sister, Hostess, Friend, and others that can add a little holiday sparkle to their life all year long.
GARLAND: This 6′ long strand features tiny mirror squares sandwiching a silver thread. I can think of a million places to drape these now around my home. And, after the holidays, I might just keep them out to occasionally drape around my shoulders.
MIRROR PHOTO FRAMES: These small frames with a wide border angled towards the photo add a lot of interesting reflections to those photos featured within. So sophisticated, and they make great gifts for teachers, hostesses, co-workers and more.
MIRROR/MOTHER OF PEARL VANITY SET : This classic staple of any refined woman’s purse is a throwback to hollywood glamour. A small mirror and a flip out comb are helpful everyday, and the beautiful presentation is a stocking stuffer sure to make her smile.
MIRRORED GALLERY FRAME SET: This is one of the latest ways to frame art. It has been all over High Point Market and the Atlanta Gift Show the past few seasons. A sophisticated replacement to the narrow black frame, a narrow mirror frame acts like a chameleon for your room.
MIRROR JEWELRY BOX: The light linen print on this mirrored box gives it visual texture and interest on the top of your vanity or dresser. I’ve never been a huge fan of jewelry boxes because they tend to look so boxy and clunky, but this is one I could enjoy seeing each morning.
CLOCK: It’s about time someone made an understated clock using antique mirror. This is modern and distinguished and even a bit whimsical – I mean the face of the clock can reflect your face? I love it.
TRAY: A tray is such a useful piece to compartmentalize your coffee table, to indicate a beverage prep area, for breakfast in bed. This simple tray clad in mirror can also be monogrammed for an extra fee, so it can be made unique for your special someone. I recommend the breakfast in bed part, too.
All of these beautiful gifts are available from West Elm, with whom we have no affiliation with whatsoever, except that I really like their taste in mirrors. What a beautiful way to say thank you to someone this holiday season. So, remember to sparkle and shine this season with your fine gift giving!
