The Best Ski-Inspired Gifts For the Home

This article originally appeared on Ski Mag

Many skiers are uber particular about their gear. While we love them dearly, finding the perfect holiday gift for your favorite skier can be tricky, especially since you want it to be something they’ll love (and use)! So, if you’re struggling to remember the exact number of shells they own (probably too many) or whether they wax their own skis, you may want to pivot your gift ideas from on the mountain to inside the house. Because, let’s face it, nothing makes a return from the slopes cozier than charming ski-themed housewear.

This is the perfect item for the skier who is always misplacing their rings, bracelets, or just about any other small item. It’s a subtle decorative piece to tie together any nightstand or dresser without being too in your face, so it’s perfect to match seamlessly with any style room. Best of all, the item can be personalized with an initial and comes in two styles, so your giftee or giftees will always have a personal touch for their knickknacks!

The secret is out…staying hydrated is trendy! Ensure your skier is feeling their best by gifting them a tumbler that will almost definitely get them to drink more water. There are plenty of similar products out on the market at various price points, but we chose the Owala because it is 100% spillproof (so don’t worry about spilling it all over your blanket during an apres fireside chat), and it comes in a multitude of colors. Staying hydrated while skiing is endlessly important (and often difficult to do), and the Owala tumbler makes it just as easy as

A Tropical Resort-Style Semi In Sydney


Having pinned down just the look she desired, the owner of this Sydney home backed herself to make it a reality.

With its light and breezy interiors and palm-tree outlooks, this semi in Sydney’s eastern suburbs resembles a tropical resort. But for owners Alex and Ryan, the journey to this dream destination, no passport required, began with two great leaps of faith.

First, Alex and her husband Ryan boldly bought the property without crossing the threshold. “We were living in London and wanted to return to Sydney,” she says. “Our parents inspected it and sent us photos. They said it had a great vibe.” There was plenty to love, even from afar. “It had great natural light, coastal breezes and huge front and back yards. The combination of the natural light and green spaces gave it a beautiful relaxed feel.”

The couple bought the home in November 2013 and returned to Australia three months later.

But first acquaintance proved far from sunny. “My initial reaction when I first walked in the door was, ‘No wonder our parents didn’t include photos of the kitchen or the bathrooms’,” says Alex. “The kitchen was past its prime and just not practical, with little storage, retro mosaics and a granite benchtop.”

In fact, the overall interior scheme was a bit dated: the walls were painted a creamy colour, paired with

‘Beige dating flags have been trending on TikTok, but this is a trend that can apply to the interiors world as well, and is one I predict we will be seeing more of on our social feeds soon,’ says Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy Trend Expert.

Interior beige flags aren’t just another home decor trend that will soon be gone though. They’ve always existed, we just didn’t know it yet. We’ve asked the experts how to spot interior beige flags, and what to do to progress them from beige to green.
