Welcome to the Hunker Holiday Gift Guide. From joyful decor picks to gifts that give back, these items are sure to delight everyone on your list.

When it comes to gift-giving, there is no harder present to secure than the one for the person who has it all. You know the type: They've already bought themselves the gadgets they love, they are minimalist with their wardrobe, and they certainly do not want any gimmicky flash-in-the-pan games or toys.


So, where do you go from there? Let them create their own gift, we say. And if you're looking for a big-ticket item that fits the bill, we found the perfect one: A piece of furniture from Allform.

For those who are unfamiliar, Allform is the newest launch from sleep brand Helix — one of Hunker's favorite mattress brands. The American-owned brand is based out of North Carolina and offers completely customizable armchairs, loveseats, sofas, and sectionals, starting at only $865.

Allform was designed after the Helix team recognized the flaws that still exist in the traditional furniture buying experience. "Traditional sofa purchases can cost thousands of dollars, take weeks to deliver, and can be a logistical nightmare," the brand tells Hunker. "With the rise of DTC sofa-in-a-box brands, the delivery time was shortened, but the quality suffered as a result of cheap, imported material that wouldn't stand the test of time. After 2 years of research, product development and testing, Allform is the perfect balance of quality, comfort, convenience, and cost."

The result is a line of furniture that truly offers unlimited configurations in nine colors, two fabric options (leather and a performance fabric), and three leg finishes. Both fabrics are scratch-, pill-, and stain-resistant and made from recycled materials through sustainable practices.

It really couldn't sound better on paper — which is why I put it to the test. I got the armchair in the "Sand" fabric and could not be more impressed. I haven't had many guests due to obvious reasons, but I get compliments from all of my friends, colleagues, and family members — both in-person and virtually — when they spot my new chair. I assembled it by myself in about 30 minutes and had zero issues and, as far as comfort goes, it's the perfect oversize chair for snuggling up while reading or watching TV.


To help you narrow down the choices, we asked the brand to spill the best-selling configurations. "The most popular models are the three-seat sofa with chaise and regular three-seat sofa, while the most popular colors are charcoal and light grey, with whiskey as the top-performing leather by far." They also wanted to give an honorable mention to the bright and fun colors, like Teal, Dark Blue, and Amber, for those who like to make a bold statement.

It's definitely a pricey pick for a gift — we get it! — but if you're looking for a big-ticket item for a live-in S.O. or family member, a credit towards an Allform piece of furniture is a game-changer.
