Looking for unique gift ideas for the home? European Splendor has many items you will not find anywhere else. As the name suggests, European Splendor sources items from Germany, Czech Republic, France, Poland, Italy, and Holland. Owner, Susan Dean Straub, says she isn’t seeing a huge trend right now, but is noticing people are wanting a little more color in their homes, especially reds. Read on to see what interesting things we saw on a recent shopping trip.
You can change a room with just a tea towel. Tea towels are popular utilitarian and decorative home pieces. They also make great gifts. Linens such as table cloths and tea towels displayed here in this armoire are from Italy. Pear-shaped candles in the foreground are also a popular home and gift items.
One of the most popular product lines in European Splendor is Panier des Sens. This company is eco-friendly, and the majority of their product ingredients are all natural. Perfumes, liquid soaps, hand lotions, body lotions, and candles – everything in this product line is popular for personal use or gift giving.
This beautiful hand painted chest from the Czech Republic would make a memorable gift.
Scenes of France tea towels are also popular for home decor and gifts. This linen line has colorful scenes of French regions, landmarks, food, etc. Scenes of France tote bags are also available. For more information, visit European Splendor’s website.
