The season of merrymaking is just around the corner. Given what 2020 has been like, it can’t come soon enough. And who doesn’t like gifts? As an online bedding store in Vancouver, our team had some carefully curated the best holiday gifts for engaged and discerning family members and friends. Even if the days of candy, toys, and quarters are behind you, there’s still an electric excitement to unboxing a gift. Of course, shopping is always a challenge. What do people need? What will they like? It’s easy to get overwhelmed. That’s why we suggest sticking to the basics. The best and most mindful gifts (for grown-ups at least) combine quality and class with long-lasting durability. Here’s our list of 10 Home Essential Holiday Gift ideas for 2020. 10) Swedish Sponge Cloth Perfect for the compulsive cleaner, our highly absorbent Swedish sponge cloths are squishy and absorbent when wet and dry like a dream. Crafted from cellulose and wood-pulp, these wipers are anti-bacterial, yet fully biodegradable and easily composted after 8-10 months of use. With free shipping to all Canadian addresses, these handy little home-helpers come in lilac, blue, and teal—and can outlast 17 rolls of paper towel, making them the perfect find for the environmentally inclined. 9) Sömn Cotton Waffle Throw Blanket An elegant throw is a wonderfully practical household staple. Made from 100% low-impact cotton and available in four sizes, the Sömn Cotton Waffle Throw Blanket features a softly textured round waffle weave. The soothing stone-grey colour blends seamlessly with any décor. As a versatile piece, it can be layered up or draped across a chair or sofa for a look that’s boho chic, yet cozy to the core. 8) Linen Cushion Cover For the consummate décor lover, these large size cushion covers deliver volume and sumptuous texture. Bring a dreamy subtle pop of colour (chose between striped lavender and wisteria) to a neutral room. As part of our stone-washed natural linen collection, these cushion covers, crafted from pure European flax, are hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, temperature regulating, and antibacterial for sweeter, deeper dreams. 7) Sömn Eco Cotton Bamboo Bath Towel Know anyone who loves taking baths? Elevate the experience with the Eco Cotton Bamboo Bath Towel. Lightweight and quick-drying, this Japanese Imabari-crafted towel is woven from thirsty eco-friendly yarns that wrap delicate skin in sumptuous softness. Crafted from a blend of 63% organic cotton and 37% organic bamboo rayon, these towels are a luxurious and durable gift that will be used (and loved) for years to come. 6) Duvet Cover Gender-neutral, tasteful, and appropriate for absolutely anyone on your list, these sumptuous sleep linens wrap slumberers in velvety comfort. Made from the finest sustainable European flax, both warm and cool sleepers will benefit from the naturally breathable and anti-bacterial qualities of our stone-washed linen, which is finished in a yarn-dyed weave for a look that’s lived-in yet refined. 5) Pappelina Area Rugs For those who love artisanal décor, every hand-crafted Pappelina rug represents an authentic piece of Swedish craftsmanship. Created using traditional loom and shuttle techniques, these certified recycled PVC-plastic and polyester-wrap rugs are suitable for use indoors and out. Choose from different patterns and styles to bring a splash of inspiration to any kitchen, bedroom, hallway, or office. 4) Sömn Plush Eco 100% Organic Cotton Bath Towel Give the gift of a sumptuously tactile experience. All bath towels by Sömn Home are crafted from environmentally friendly, all-natural fibers. As a rare indulgence that combines luxurious quality, lasting usefulness, and sophisticated styling, the deep-Plush Eco Cotton Towel is a pleasure to use and effortlessly enhances bathroom style. Available in bundles of three and four for families. 3) Sömn Organic Cotton Sleepwell Pillowcases and Insert Available in sets of two, our stunning Alpine White Pillowcases and insert are a stunning alternative to traditional pillows. Made from 100% organic cotton, these covers comfortable cradle the head thanks to streamlined proportions. Whether it’s sandwiched between the knees (for better back alignment) or propping up tired feet, the buttery-smooth sateen casing is super soft and relaxing to the touch. Pulls double duty as a decorative pillow when not in use. 2) Luxury Linen Bedding Set There’s nothing like the gift of a good night’s sleep. And when the method of delivery is our thick yet soft stone-washed crafted by fine European artisans, wow is guaranteed. Available in king and queen sizes, Sömn bedding sets range from the 3-piece Comfort Set (flat sheet and 2 pillowcases) to the 5-piece Linen Luxe Set (flat sheet, fitted sheet, duvet cover, and 2 pillowcases). Choose from 11 swoon-worthy shades including the new nature-inspired seasonal hues—oatmeal, kidney bean, and cinnamon for a cohesive designer look that will elevate any sleep space. 1) Sömn Home Gift Card When you just don’t know, the gift of shopping is a safe bet.
