Between the corporate holiday parties and seemingly endless family get-togethers, the holidays leave little time for actually preparing for the holidays. To spare you from battling the masses on the last-minute gift hunt for something, well, average, we’ve collaborated with a few of our all-time favorite interior designers to give you the coolest gift ideas for everyone, from your stylish best friend to your chic co-worker. Dwelling Collective asked these designers to share their top gift picks, and boy are they good. These gifts scream “I’ve been thinking about this all year”. Don’t worry, we’ll keep your secret. 

We like to refer to Calabasas-based designer, Amber Lewis, as the Beyonce of the design world—no surname name needed. Amber Interiors' aesthetic has become one of the most recognizable looks in design, and thanks to her Shoppe (online and two gorgeous brick-and-mortar locations in Southern California), it’s easier than ever to shop the goods needed to achieve her signature eclectic vibe.

Amber’s upscale style is characterized by a bit of Bohemian charm and a certain warmth that has us begging to live in an Amber-designed space. She's mastered a California ecelectic aesthetic while incorporating linens, furniture, rugs and accessories from her very own Shoppe in her projects. It goes without saying that we’d prefer to be on the receiving end of anything she picks out.

From a cashmere bathrobe to candles from her very own apothecary line, Amber’s gift picks revolve around creating cozy moments at home, and we can bet you’ll want to grab some of these for yourself. Add in earthy accessories for the kitchen, like ceramic pinch pots and perfectly proportioned cutting boards, and we’re in gift-giving heaven.

If Amber approves, you can’t go wrong. Read ahead to see what gifts she’s buying her loved ones this holiday season.
