our holiday gift guide~
Black Friday madness is sweeping the country—some chain stores are even opening at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving. That won’t be the case at the Slifer Designs. We covet family time, and know you do too, so we will take a moment to smell the roses… or the pumpkin pie as the case may be. We are excited to spend Friday helping you find some spectacular gifts for friends, or locate just the right piece to spice up the holidays in your home.
Saturday is becoming known as ‘Small Business Saturday,’ so if you want personalized attention, questions answered and not to be run over by the hordes, please come visit us. We hope you are inspired to see what can be found around the corner, at our stores in Cherry Creek or Edwards.
Sometimes it’s nice to have an idea what awaits you, so look no further if you want a sneak peek at some of our favorite things—which just happen to be some of Oprah’s favorite things too!
Lafco Candles are delicious way to create a warm mood. Perfect for a hostess or finicky mother-in-law. We particularly love the Tree and Berry, $55 each (on Oprah’s O-list). Sit back, inhale and de-stress.
The Buddha Board captivates the attention of everyone from 3 year olds to 71 year olds. It is ‘based on the Zen concept of living in the moment’—paint with water and the artwork will come to life. You might find your inner Renoir, or find peace in the holiday season. Regular, $35 and Mini, $12.
My aunt is well known for bringing fun, seasonal napkins to every family gathering. I love pulling them out of the drawer later on—especially when guests drop over unannounced for cocktail hour. My Drap (disposable cotton napkins) are perfect: $27 to $40 depending on size.
Many families exchange holiday ornaments as part of the annual tradition. The problem is it gets harder and harder to find unique and festive ornaments everyone loves. Every year we scour showroom for the perfect and one-of-a-kind ornament and this year we found these: Great Holiday Ornaments, $9 to $60 (a variety of styles and prices).
Mariposa Picture Frame Ornaments combine the best of two worlds. These sparkly frames add pizazz to the tree and frame photos perfectly. These are the perfect stocking stuffer or present for your favorite teacher. $19 each.
There is no time like the holidays to create a luxurious and welcoming dining room, resplendent with Christmases past and present. We have place settings that will take your breath away and encourage indulgent dinners. Various table settings, $19 to $200.
Jan Barboglio is renowned for gorgeous hand-wrought candelabras and distinctive hurricanes. For more than two decades these pieces have added charm and brought warmth to rooms great and small. Prices range from $45 to $500.
In case you are shopping for an out-of-town relative who you want to let know how wonderful Colorado is, we have shelves of coffee table books, Colorado-themed items and throw pillows/blankets to take the chill of the night while spicing up the living room.
We relish the chance to help you transform your house into a holiday wonderland, or find the perfect present for everyone on your list. See you Friday!
