The holiday shopping season always brings with it a certain set of pressures — we’re all familiar with buying for someone who has it all, or who just won’t hint at what they want — but 2021 is decidedly different. This year the challenges are around getting what they want at all, with supply chains broken and shipping problems exacerbated around the world. That’s where vintage and antique pieces come in, since they’re just ready and waiting to be picked up or delivered to put a smile on their faces. We’ve got many thousands of giftable items just waiting for that next person to re-Chairish them.

To make the shopping process even easier, below you can find a selection of favorites from our 2021 Gift Guide, with ideas according to price and recipient, from pieces under $50 to big-ticket items for the person who has it all. Browse through our list, and be sure to shop the entire Chairish Gift Guide.

Gifts under $50 including a wicker tray, ladybug pendant, and blue swirly candlesticks.

Gifts Under $50

Not every gift needs to be extravagant to say “I love you” (though we certainly have nothing against receiving those, trust us). These are the smaller items that are sure to bring a smile to their face, from tabletop pieces to glassware and some seriously groovy candles. 

Gifts under $100 include a blue floral vase, 3-wick candle, and decorative plate.

Gifts Under $100

Working our way up to a triple-digit price point, these gifts run the gamut from beautiful bowls to elegant vases and even chic cocktail picks — something we didn’t even know we needed until now, but can’t live without. The perfect gift.

Gifts under $250 including cabbage plates, pink ornaments and striped plates.

Gifts Under $250

Our final price point is $250, with creative options for the table, the Christmas tree, and even a new stationery set. Or consider some seriously cool art from up-and-coming makers that will truly personalize your gift picks.

Gifts for the gamer include a chess set, fuse ball table, backgammon set, pingpong table, and acrylic Jenga set.

For the Gamer

Okay this is Chairish, so put down the PS5 controller and pick up the chic croquet mallet; we have a different kind of gamer in mind. Get a taste of the classics with stylishly designed foosball tables, backgammon games, chess boards, and more.

For the art lover is an array of colorful contemporary paintings.

For the Art Lover

It’s an understatement to say we’re a bit art-obsessed here at Chairish. We have pieces at every price point and for every type of art lover, from paintings in candy colors (quite literally) to vibrant still lifes, abstracts, and much more.

For the hostess is a set of pink tumblers, bird candlesticks, green serving tray.

For the Hostess

If you know someone who loves playing host or hostess — and you want to see your gift in action for the New Year’s Eve party — these picks are for you. Choose everything from stemless wine glasses to oyster plates and even a luxe Baccarat crystal champagne bucket.

For the one who has everything a potted plant, the David Hockney book, Philippe Sheep sculpture.

For the One Who Has Everything

Finally, there are those people on the list who are just impossible to shop for. We would wave a magic wand to find the perfect gift if we could (or you could just buy your own), but instead we’ve put together an assortment of one-of-a-kind mirrors, furniture, and objets d’art to make them ooh and ahh.
