The best gifts are ones that the recipient can look at for years to come and be reminded of how generous you are and how lucky they are to have you in their life. For that, you should be gifting luxury interior design.
Sure, copping your loved ones clothes is always appreciated, but unlike interior design pieces, they’ll probably be demoted to wardrobe-filling duty in a couple of years. Remember that OBEY hoodie you desperately wanted your parents to get you back in 2009? Where’s that now? It’s certainly not hanging on your wall for all to see, is it?
On the other hand, giving something that will upgrade their interior means that your gift will be on full show for years to come, effectively weaving you into the very fabric of their environment. Better still, if you happen to live with the lucky recipient then you reap the benefits at the same time. It’s a win-win.
