Holiday Gift Preview!

It might be a little unusual to find a gift department in a furniture store… but Fairhaven Furniture is no ordinary store! This holiday season, our gift department is chock-full of treasures – some pieces are from familiar makers that we carry year-round, while others are one-offs that you won’t find again. Keep scrolling to preview some of our favorites from this season, all photographed on display here in the store.

Colorful socks from Zkano | Handknit handwarmers

Banish cold hands and toes this winter with cozy accessories! Our alpaca socks for men and women are sustainably made in the USA and come in a wide selection of patterns – from fabulously funky to office-appropriate. Meanwhile, one-of-a-kind handknit handwarmers keep your palms and pulse points warm… while leaving your fingers free for tapping out text messages. 😉

Landscape shadow boxes | Laser cut flower trivet | Laser cut birch votive holders

We love everything that Baltic by Design creates – from trivets and coasters to bowls and votive holders, to adorable shadow boxes and Christmas ornaments. Each piece is laser-cut from solid birch, right here in the US.

A collection of books on yoga and spirituality | A collection of books on birding

Did you know we sell books? We seek out titles that are beautifully designed and just a little offbeat. There’s something for just about everyone – yogis and foodies, backyard birders and master mixologists, men, women and children, too!

A rack of woven capes in plaid designs | A shelf of scarves in many patterns and colors

Fashionistas, we defy you to find a better selection of scarves in New Haven County! Bright solids, jaunty plaids, elegant jacquards, hand-felted designs – we’ve got ‘em all. Or for extra warmth and flair, try one of our cozy capes.

A display of handmade, ceramic mugs in multi-color glazes | An assortment of colorful wool felt coasters

This holiday season, may we never lack a delicious, warm beverage… or a safe place to set it down! The unique shape of our handwarmer mugs keeps your fingers warm as you cradle it in your hand. Righty and lefty mugs are available.

Pair your mug with a set of wool felt coasters – the felt absorbs condensation, so the coaster will never stick to the bottom of your cup. Available in bright and neutral colors, in solid sets or multi-color packs.

Hand screen printed kitchen towels | Dishtowels and reusable cloths in festive prints

Who doesn’t love a gift that’s both beautiful and practical? A pretty dish towel is always appreciated – and these ones are silkscreened right here in New Haven. Wrap one around a loaf of homemade bread for an extra-special gift! (Or maybe “homemade” bread that you picked up at the bakery? Your secret is safe with us.)

Our eco-friendly BluCloths are the kitchen hero you never knew you needed – absorbent like a paper towel, reusable like a sponge, quick to dry, and super cute. When one wears out, just toss it in the compost to break down naturally.

Candles and room spray in Frasier Fir scent

The holiday season just isn’t complete without the aromatic scent of fir. The Frasier Fir line from Thymes combines the snap of crisp Siberian fir needles with cedarwood and sandalwood for a truly iconic wintertime scent. Available as a scented candle or a room spray.

That’s it for our holiday gift preview, but there is so much more to see in the store! We’re open seven days a week until Christmas — we hope you’ll drop in to pick out a few special gifts for the loved ones on your list. See you soon!
