Designer Sara Bederman’s Guide to Gifting

Sara Bederman Principal Designer for Sara Bederman Design offers some last-minute Christmas gift suggestions.

It is officially gifting time!  The stores are a-glow with holiday lights and shoppers are ready to find gifts that inspire creativity, togetherness and celebration.  There are so many amazing gifts to choose from but sometimes it can be so overwhelming.  Here is are some of my personal favorites for this holiday season.

For the Chic Environmental

Beverage Bucket

Sea Bags makes fun, functional and stylish totes from reclaimed sail cloth.  Every bag is already full…with history that is!  Hand made in the historic Old Port district of Portland, Maine, each bag is made from donated ship sails that have sailed lakes and seas all over America.  These bags are chic, practical and help save the planet, they can be customized too!  Check out to see the collection and oodles of other items for home and lifestyle.


For the Foodie

The holiday seasons is a time for gathering and of course, eating!  Everyone loves to enjoy their favorite indulgence.  If you are shopping for someone who loves deep fried food you should check out the Philips Airfryer.  Available in 3 sizes to suit anyone’s space and lifestyle needs, the Airfyrer is a fast and fat-reduced way to make those sinful fried treats.  Best of all, this amazing appliance virtually eliminates the mess and smell of frying food the more traditional way.


For the Entertainer

Planning a dinner party can be overwhelming and time consuming!  So many details to remember from the shopping list, center piece to the cooking and baking that may need to be done.  Breville has made serving wine simple!  No need to remember to decant the red, in comes the Breville Sommelier.  A genius small appliance!  Simply pour the red wine in to the decanter of the appliance and let it work its magic.  One minute of oxygenation in the Sommelier is equivalent to one hour of traditional decanting time, meaning you can enjoy your wines just minutes after opening, rather than waiting hours for traditional decanting methods to take effect.  Now that is efficient!  Party on!

Truly Unique –The Gift That Keeps Giving : 

This year many in our city are looking to raise awareness of gun violence and help make a difference to get guns now off are Canadian streets

Caliber Collection®  Is a series of cuffs, bracelets and cufflinks engraved with the serial numbers from illegal guns and created with the metal from shell casings that have been swept from crime scenes or turned over during gun buyback and amnesty programs

The vision was simple yet profound. By transforming instruments of destruction, illegal and unwanted weapons and shell casings swept from crime scenes, into jewelry, the Caliber Collection could create a virtuous cycle by funding a gun buyback and amnesty programs from the proceeds of its sales. To date, they have taken over 3,000 illegal guns off the streets with customers in over 87 countries.
