The holiday season can be busy and stressful, leaving you running around last minute trying to find the perfect gift. By creating our Holiday Gift Guide by Room, we’re hoping to help you out with that part. By breaking down the list this way, you can easily pinpoint the direction you want to go, simply by identifying the space in their home they use the most (or even the space they complain about the most!). To make it even easier, all of the products on this list can be found locally or online–it’s up to you, although we do suggest calling ahead if you plan to go in.

Novero’s Holiday Gift Guide by Room

The Kitchen

You can never go wrong with a beautiful cook book for a home chef you know. Yotam Assaf Ottolenghi is an Israeli-British chef, restaurant owner, and food writer. He is the co-owner of five delis and restaurants in London, as well as the author of  bestselling cookbooks like Plenty, and Jerusalem. Beautiful photography and delicious, simple recipes.

Available at Old Faithful Shop in Gastown.


The Family Room

This is a space where everyone hangs out. Whether they’ve got a brood of teenagers or a dog that loves to brush up against everything, they might be in need for a little refresh. Aesop is an Australian company that sources plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients, and use only those with a proven record of safety and efficacy. This Cythera Aromatique Room Spray is a veil of Geranium and Incense, lent symmetry by woody Patchouli and the warmth of Myrrh.

Available at Aesop.


The Bathroom

This next gift can go from the bathroom to the beach. Vancouver company Sunday Dry Goods has the best turkish towels. They are hand loomed or finished with premium colourfast Turkish cotton, these towels grow softer and more absorbent with each use. An easy peasy gift that they will love and use for years!

Available online Sunday Dry Goods or at any of these vendors.


The Bar

For the person who loves to entertain, and do so in style. This smoked glass decanter duos as a beautiful sculpture, and would make a stylish addition to any bar.

Available at CB2.


The Bedroom

We love the idea of this beautiful diffuser from Saje for in the bedroom. Tackle the dry winter air and add beautiful, natural fragrance all at ones. With a wide selection of diffusion blends, this is the gift that keeps on giving.

Available at Saje.


The Entryway

We like this fun idea of cute or quirky doormat as a gift. There are plenty out there to choose from, and it’s something they can use seasonally or year round.

We like the selection available at Simons.

The Office

Got a busy person on your hands? Help them out with Google Home Mini.  It’s powered by the Google Assistant. They can ask it questions and tell it to do things. It’ll be their own personal Google.

Available at Indigo.

The Dining Room

For the entertainer in your life, we love this marble and brass multi-purpose cheese board. It’s super stylish for serving (love the handles too) but would also look beautiful anywhere in the home to display things like vases or books.

Available at West Elm.


We hope this Holiday Gift Guide has left you inspired, or at least with a shopping list.

Happy Holidays,
