West Elm $50 Gift Card Giveaway and Holiday Gift Guide

I love West Elm. I’ve been shopping there for years, and most of home is furnished with their products.

My sofa, area rug, dining room table and leather chairs, bedroom set, desk and chair, lamps, and more is from West Elm. I wasn’t able to do it all at once, and it took me years to piece it all together, but the style and vibe just resonates with me and it was worth the wait.

Recently I went shopping and picked up this Olive Wood Large Paddle Board, $31

It’ll be perfect for food photography because I love photographing food on wood surfaces, such as the wood underneath the board.

The board’s intended use is for cheese.

I know when I have friends over and crack some wine and set out some cheese on it that it’ll get ooh’s and ahh’s because the surface is just so cool.

I also picked up a set of Organic Pleated Edge Towels and Striped Tumblers. I’ve used West Elm towels in the past, but this set takes softness and plushness to a new level.

The cotton is super cozy and absorbent, and the size of the bath sheet is beyond generous. I bought the set for my daughter’s bathroom and she’s only 6, but the bath sheet would comfortably fit a 6’6″ man. It’s huge. If you need a supremely generously sized towel that’s wonderfully soft, this is the one.

Love that it’s organic cotton and eco-friendly. West Elm has a Commitment to Green
