Our 2019 Holiday Gift (and Wish!) List


With Thanksgiving arriving so late this year, finding the perfect holiday gift has become more of a sprint than a marathon. But we’re jogging easy here at the studio because we always come together and share our wishlists early – a little mix of what we’d love to have and what we’d love to give this season.

The holiday gift and wish list from the team at Laura U 2019

1.) Lily Chandelier, Corbett Lighting 2.) Geometrique, Josh Young 3.) Spa Certificate, our choice: The Houstonian 4.) Diptyque Hand Wash Set 5.) Burberry Her fragrance 6.) Embroidered Shadow Box, Stephen Wilson 7.) In the Wild Throw, Barefoot Dreams


This spectacular chandelier from Corbett Lighting is on my wishlist this year. So romantic!


I recently picked up a single piece at an event hosting the artist himself, Josh Young.  All of his art is exquisite, but there’s something about the geometrique series that just makes my heart skip a beat – I think it’s the playful, yet careful and intentional selection of what words to leave exposed.  Any piece from this series is a perfect gift for the art lover or bibliophile in your life. 


My favorite gifts to give are experiences. No matter the holiday or occasion, I like to gift friends and family with opportunities to try something new or do something that they really enjoy. I think the memories from these moments tend to last way longer than most tangible items. Usually, it will be a concert ticket or show, but sometimes I’ll give a gift card to a spa, wine tasting, or painting class. 


I keep Diptyque candles and hand wash stocked at my home at all times. So it isn’t a surprise that when guests come over, they rave (and want) the hand wash in my powder room. Diptyque has come out with a set for the holiday season so this is THE perfect gift for them! 


This Her by Burberry scent would make the perfect gift for that special lady in your life! The best way to describe the aroma is like a warm hug – perfect for this winter season! 


For the Fashionista in your life, these artworks by Stephen Wilson are such a unique gift. Wilson hand stitches these embroidered luxury boxes, turning them into one-of-a-kind works of art. I love the colors and details of the Le Marsais set on Hermes boxes. The Ooh La La is fun too.


This throw from Barefoot Dreams is an absolute dream! The tonal leopard print would be the perfect gift for your stylish friends and family that made the gift list. A quality throw is such a great gift that looks fabulous when not being used and keeping that special someone warm during chilly nights.
