I am astounded that more people dont think of table lamps when they find themselves in a quandary, not knowing what to purchase for friends and relatives as a gift. How often have you considered a table lamp gift? When you are in a situation where you need something to liven up your home or office but are not sure what to add to the mix, why dont you think to try a new table lamp or desk lamp?

You are hardly alone. But table lamps and desk lamps can make the gifting task so much easier. They are often among the most well received gifts you could offer since they often are things we delay and put off purchasing for ourselves. Most young couples, strapped for cash, walk around their dimly light apartments or new homes until they have saved enough to splurge on home furnishings. Who wants to walk around some dimly lit space, or strain their eyes reading in the dark! For these very reasons, table lamps make terrific gifts for weddings and housewarmings.

For those weighing various types of table lamps as part of their gift giving and purchasing options, here is an idea: look into touch table lamps. They also have the added functional benefit of properly illuminating a room so consider that another positive. Of course, not all touch table lamps are built identically. If you are curious as to which touch table lamps to purchase for the home or office, three of the most popular categories of touch table lamps are:

1. The Brass Touch Table Lamps

2. The Military Touch Table Lamps


3. The Celebrity Touch Table Lamps

We will take a quick look at these Touch Table Lamps in our next several paragraphs.

Brass Table Touch Lamps

The presence of a brass touch table lamp in any environment will improve an interior tremendously. Brass has a definitive eye-catching quality. However, since brass is decidedly less rare and considerably less valuable than gold, it has developed some common misconceptions regarding its quality. Nevertheless, no one is seriously considering purchasing a solid gold table lamp! Rest assured, the quality of brass makes it perfect for those looking for a centerpiece style table lamp. The touch table lamp can provide both visual allure and functional quality.

Touch table lamps are not made completely of brass and include popular looking shades that can come in many designs. These designs can include variations on the shape of the shades as well as illustrations on the shades. The illustrations can include depictions of hunting dogs, various birds, wolves, flowers such as roses, and many other subjects. The variety of designs helps increase the number of locations in your home in which a touch table lamp can be placed.

Military Touch Table Lamps

In the current era, Military touch table lamps have become popular. The world is experiencing a resurgence of patriotism and support for the military in a way that has not been seen in years. This has led many to show their support for the military in scores of different ways. These touch table lamps feature shades with illustrations and depictions from all of the branches of the military including the army, navy, air force, marines, and, national guard. Additionally, these table lamps also include designs honoring service members MIA, POWs, and fallen soldiers.

For those who wish to honor the military or show their patriotic colors, a Military touch table lamp can make an excellent purchase. In terms of their function, they possess the added benefit of also truly being excellent top of the line table lamp.

Celebrity Table Touch Lamps

Celebrities are commonly treated like royalty! So, it should come as no surprise that there are a number of touch table lamps that feature glowing tributes to celebrities. This “glowing” is both a mix of the figurative and the literal. In other words, the illustrations of the celebrities assuredly present them in a positive light while the actual light emanating from the lamp provides the proper illumination one would expect from a quality lamp.

The celebrities featured on these table lamps cover a wide range of characters. Those featured on the lamps include John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Betty Boop, and even characters from Star Wars. You could consider many of these celebrity touch table lamps to be a reliable homage to some of the great and classic characters of pop culture. Those who enjoy collecting such items would definitely be best served looking into purchasing from this collection of lamps. And, as always, the functional quality of the lamps is top notch so you need not worry about whether or not the lamp will deliver in the lighting department.

Why purchase a dull looking lamp when there are much better options available? The three types of touch table lamps listed previously provide quality, functional, and aesthetic value to any environment. That is why touch table lamps should never be dismissed as they will deliver on the expectations of the consumer.
