Natalie Myers’ Gift Picks are Both Thoughtful and Cool — And Your Friends Will Love You

Gift Guide // Natalie Myers x Dwelling Collective

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. 

What’s better than rubbing shoulders with one of the most sought after designers in LA? For us, it’s having the seriously cool designer share what gifts she’s buying this year. Natalie Myers of Veneer Designs, is recognized by her organic mid-century modern style, and we’re eager to buy anything she puts her stamp-of-approval on.

Not everyone is lucky enough to have Myers style their home, but, we can borrow a bit of the designer's taste and genius by shopping her gift list this year. Each curated pick has us feeling like we’ve been wrapped in a giant, warm hug by Natalie herself. From sleek, black cutting boards to the coolest coffee setup you’ll be begging to have yourself, your gift recipients will feel the same way—loved (by you, of course).

After our team oohed and aahed over Natalie’s unique gift picks, she playfully added, “if you feel like gifting me with any and all of these items, I won’t be mad.” Our thoughts, exactly.
