“After nearly a decade on the West Coast, I moved back to Saint John. I’ve observed so many positive changes in the city and am thrilled to have found my place in it as a member of the Tuck team. As a furniture and interior design enthusiast, I’m anxious to help people bring style and function into their homes and lives. Oh, and I am still an aspiring dog owner, so, in the meantime, I hope you don’t mind me cuddling yours!”
1 | Klippan Art Deco Blanket, $299
I think I’ve had a Klippan Blanket in my Top 5 list for the past four years consecutively, and there’s a good chance one will be on my gift list next year. I think a beautiful quality throw blanket always makes a great present, because it’s sure to be treasured for years to come.

4 | Irvine Mountain Cushion, $69
I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world, but this cushion reminds me of my time living on the west coast. It not only looks great, it’s also very cozy, with a soft velvet backing and feather fill insert.
This cushion was so popular that since we created our gift guides, it has completely sold out! But don’t fret, we have plenty of other beautiful cushions in stock like these ones…
