Illuminating Lamps: Beyond the Ordinary Holiday Gift


Lighting and Lamps

The Holiday Season is upon us! You want to give everyone on your guest list the sleep, spa, beauty, and home items they want. Long ago, this meant getting to the mall early and fighting crowds. This year, do it all online!

Do you have a book lover on your list? Do you need the perfect gift for someone who seems to have it all? Do you need a present for someone with impeccable taste in home decor? Do you know someone who took advantage of the hot real estate market and recently moved into a new home? The solution is the same for all of these people. Buy them a lamp!

Why are Lamps the Perfect Holiday Gift?

When you give someone a lamp, you’re giving the gift of illumination! You’re also making sure they stay happy and healthy. Too few people realize how important the lighting in your home is to get a great night of sleep. Remember, lighting affects your circadian rhythm. The right lighting is also important for setting an ambiance, decorating, brightening a space, or giving a bright light to a person’s workspace. 

Whether someone wants to read on the couch, turn off the last bit of light for the night from bed, or simply make their entryway look fabulous, the right lamp can make it possible! Some of our lighting options incorporate convenience features, including USB ports, touch dimmers, and adjustable extension arms for a modern update to this classic home accessory. Innovative, purposeful, and distinctive, these lighting options provide a more comfortable and functional room environment.

A Few of our Favorite Lamps

In our online catalogue, you will find floor lamps that are perfect in the living room next to the sofa and table lamps that are ideal for bedside tables and desks. A few of our top gift recommendations include:

LumiSource Trombone Metal Floor Lamp With Glass Side Table

From top-lighting manufacturer LumiSource, this is both a lamp and side table in one. It’s perfect for the person with big taste and small square footage. It’s made from a chic mix of materials that will complement any room’s decor. It features a slim gold metal frame, a built-in round tempered glass accent table at the side, and a curved neck that suspends the white globe-shaped sconce shade. It is able to be controlled by the convenient in-line foot switch. They can place it next to a sofa, reading chair, desk, or bed.

Nova Lighting Moonlight Sky Fabric Table Lamp

Made by Nova Lighting in California, this lamp is just as beautiful as it is functional. Emitting soft accent lighting, this decorative lamp in sky blue features luxurious linen at the base and drum-shaped shade, offering a natural, contemporary aesthetic. It is perfect for nightstands and end tables because you are able to easily adjust the degree of brightness with its dimmable switch.

LumiSource Doe Li™ Contemporary Touch Desk Lamp

We absolutely love this product, because it looks like a traditional lamp with a little extra flair. With a uniquely stylish and on-trend squiggle body, this wavy table lamp features a brushed satin metal design, topped with a cone-shaped frosted glass shade for the ultimate combination of function and elegance. You are able to adjust the brightness to low, medium, or high with a touch of the metal arm or base. This makes it easy to set your chosen mood lighting, no matter what room in the house it is placed in.

LumiSource Ozzy Round Metal Cage Desk Lamp

Maybe the person on your gift list is difficult to shop for because they have such unique taste. We are sure they’ve never seen anything like this lamp! It is funky, industrial, and eclectic, while also still exuding luxury. This desk lamp features a slim metal body and round metal base, all in an antique finish. The cage-like fan style shade with a wire metal construction displays a four-spoke centerpiece enclosing four evenly distributed bulb bases to disperse light throughout the space. They’re sure to gasp with excitement when they open the box and see this!

This Holiday Season is going to be a bit different than in year’s past. With shipping bottlenecks expected to continue up to and throughout the Holidays, we encourage you to begin your shopping early. This way, your guests will get everything they want, and you won’t be running around at the last minute.
