Jen's Picks

His nightstand will consist of things of function - a tray or an alarm clock, reading glasses and a glass for water.

One of my favorite things to see in a bedroom is his and her nightstands. A man’s nightstand is usually more edited. A handsome clock, a catch all bowl, or a tray, are all very useful, and still feel masculine.

Her nightstand will consist of more feminine items for function and display - a vase of flowers, a pretty book, and a pair of sparkly earrings.

A woman’s nightstand will be filled with functional things as well as things that make her happy. If you want something that will immediately give away whose side of the bed it is, put flowers on her side. Real flowers are always so beautiful, but if you are worried about the maintenance we have some absolutely beautiful forever florals in our stores that require no upkeep. A few other ideas for her nightstand are to have a bowl to drop jewelry in at the end of the night, or a tray to hold a candle or lotion in, or put a cute accessory on there!

If you are struggling with what to put on the nightstands in your room, come into our store, we would love to help you figure out what they need.
