why have a holiday gift shop all in one color?
Here at Dandelion Chandelier, we’ve created curated lists of all-of-a-color luxury items and experiences for those who love a particular hue – or whose gift recipients do.

we love the color orange for holiday gifts
Our annual holiday gift guide of the best gifts in every shade of orange is always one of the most joyful ones to write. And why not?
The color orange just might be one of the juiciest, yummiest and happiest hues under the sun. Orange radiates good health, optimism and sunshine. It’s fresh and sweet, but it can also have an undertone of bitterness for balance.
the holiday gift shop of the best cheerful happy gifts
Ever better? Orange is completely gender-neutral so anyone can rock it as long as they have the right attitude. For some it signifies high summer, with all of its freedom and adventure. For others, it’s the color of autumn – a time of renewed purpose and reflection. It can signify Halloween fun and annual family feasts.
Louis Vuitton and Hermes, among other luxury brands, claim orange as their signature color, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s striking, memorable, energizing and distinctive.
And yet for all of that, orange is largely unencumbered by the weight of expectations. When people see it, they generally anticipate being delighted and surprised. With orange, you can never be sure what will happen next, but it’s usually something good. So whether you call it apricot, melon, tangerine or peach – this year more than ever, we need more orange in the world.
