A Season of Giving

A holiday gift guide from Made for Home

The holidays can be just as stressful as they might be merry, but gift-giving doesn’t have to be a chore. In fact, you can make your shopping trip downright jolly by visiting Billings’ hottest décor destination, Made for Home. Candle scents ranging from cinnamon chai to lime salt guava will guide you through the historic downtown doors, where you’ll find inspiration in chaises under chandeliers and hand-carved dinnerware on hand-crafted dining tables.

“We work really hard to make it an experience for everyone,” says manager Bailie Quinones. “From the way we arrange our displays to the items we bring in, we want your visit to be more than shopping. We want to make people happy and inspire them to bring that happiness back into their own homes.”

With its emphasis on high-quality, affordable décor and lifestyle products, Made for Home is the perfect stop for anyone hoping to spruce up the home of a loved one this holiday season. Skip the gift cards and box calendars this year, and check out some one-of-a-kind gift ideas from the best in the business.

For Anyone and Everyone: Hannesson Home Signature Candle

This best-selling product, the manager’s personal favorite, is available in four intriguing scents: Folklore, Established, Nostalgia, and Tailored. Nostalgia burns with hints of loose tobacco, vanilla, cedarwood, and oiled leather—and the other candles produce similarly unique yet comforting aromas from their classy matte black containers.

“It’s a little something for everybody,” Bailie Quinones says, linking her favorite product to her company’s mission. “Everyone deserves to have a space that feels like their own, and there are big and small ways to make it feel like that. We want anyone to be able to walk in off the streets, no matter what walk of life, and be able to purchase something—whether it be a candle or a couch—that makes their house feel more like home.”
