For more than 20 years, The Basketry has been a local source for the best gifts for every occasion.
The team is back at it again this year with top picks for your holiday gifting.
“Each Christmas, my team and I make a very conscious effort to find the next big thing and bring in items that we hope recipients will love for years to come,” says Kristi Brocato, the store’s owner.
Here’s what the team suggests you scoop up and wrap up to put under the tree!
“One of our go-to gifts this year is anything out of our boutique,” says Brocato. “We’ve gotten so many pieces that are versatile, easy to wear, and appropriate for a broad range of ages and styles.”
Whether you’re shopping for someone who is always on trend or someone who is true to their own style, The Basketry is here to help you find something that will make them elated this Christmas! The Basketry’s Creative Team recommends Piko tops and dresses and their new line of easy-to-wear jackets and tops.
Brocato also recommends the store’s collection of white and marble home décor pieces.
“Marble is a huge trend in home décor across the south, and we’re getting some great pieces that fit perfectly into any home,” Brocato said.
The team’s favorite is their personalized marble board with an inlaid copper initial. Whether they’re regular entertainers or enjoy cooking only for two, your friends and family will love this board as an addition to their kitchen.
“Of course, every woman loves a new piece of jewelry under the tree, so I would say there’s no going wrong with the Kendra Scott Winter Collection,” Brocato added.
This brand new collection was inspired by the jewelry designer’s many trips to Italy and is adorned with jewel tone gemstones and sparkly accents. While these pieces are fabulous to wear this holiday season, so many of the earrings, bracelets, and necklaces in this collection will become a go-to piece in your collection.
Perhaps this team’s most beloved gift to suggest this holiday season is their collection of men’s gifts that give back to the community.
“Bonfolk socks are a no-brainer for both men and women,” Brocato said. “They’re made locally so they have the New Orleans flair that we all love, but for every pair sold, a pair is donated to the homeless.”
In addition to their collection of Bonfolk socks, The Basketry team also suggests their NOLA Couture ties for men.
While they have several styles to choose from, the girls suggest the mini oyster tie, because 10 percent of sales of the mini oyster tie benefit the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana.
The Basketry is open until Dec. 24 at 4 p.m. to take care of your holiday gifting needs. Visit the team of ladies and let them make your holiday shopping easier than ever!
