Buckhead treasure trove Peridot expands its gift empire with a shop on the Westside. It’s still full of neat-o goods for everyone on your list, but this one pays more attention to the home. Here are some of our favorite picks.
A Soft Idea Personalized Blanket, $44
Your niece is an angel (for a few more years). Give her an embroidered snuggler (pictured) that’s as soft as she is sweet; she’ll treasure it even through her terrible teens.
FunkyChunky Festive Snacks, $12.50-$21
The constant flow of treats was always a highlight at Grandma’s house. Keep her stocked with the candy cane mix (popcorn, caramel, macadamia nuts, candy canes), chocolate-covered pretzels, or Chip-Zel-Pop (chocolate-drizzled potato chips, pretzels, and caramel corn).
Dash & Albert Indoor/Outdoor Rugs, $40-$500
You have a sneaking suspicion your brother’s new pad is one cold, barren hardwood floor. Colorful woven rugs pull double duty: He can throw one on the porch and another next to the PlayStation.
Monogrammed Hand Towel, $24
Your OCD friend goes through paper towel rolls faster than you down tortilla chips at happy hour. Allow her to pat her hands dry on a pretty personalized cloth instead.
Custom Porch Swing, $3,000
There it is: Mom’s dream, a massive rocker in her favorite color with an antique chain and comfy cushion (Lacefield Design’s appliqued pillows optional). Persuade Dad and the rest of the family to chip in. (Price includes installation.)
Because there’s no place like …
