Holiday Gift Guide: For the Home

Gift Guide for the Home

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

The season for gifting is almost upon us! When I asked on Instagram, the majority of you responded that you’re already shopping, so I thought I’d start sharing gift guides now. My hope is that these guides will help you select meaningful gifts that your friends and family will treasure. Home-themed presents are among my favorites. It feels good to gift a touch of warmth and happiness to the place where people spend the majority of their time.

  1. Gold Picture Frames // Fill with a photo of a special memory together.
  2. Weathered Vase // For the friend who’s always picking up fresh flowers from Trader Joe’s or a local market.
  3. Nesting Mixing Bowls // A clever kitchen accessory for the friend who loves to cook & stay organized.
  4. Pair of Cream Vases // Perfect as bud vases on a nightstand or kept in the kitchen on display.
  5. Faux Fur Throw // A catch-all gift that anyone would love for cozying up with a book or watching a movie on cold winter nights.
  6. Olive Oil Cruet // A decorative, functional kitchen staple that’s pretty and will be used daily.
  7. Terrain Woven Doormat // This would be my go-to for a friend with a new home. Its classic, textured look would work well with anyone’s style.
  8. Neutral Spoon Rest // A necessary accessory for cooking winter soups and stews.
  9. Brass Candlesticks // These are eye-catching when placed on a coffee table or placed next to vintage books in built-ins.
  10. Winter Forest Soap Set with Caddy // Soaps are one of my favorite festive home touches, like I mentioned here. This highly-rated set is 20% off through tonight and is a great gift for just about anyone on your list.

Gifts Under $100:

Woven Ottoman Tray // Great for the person who loves to host. Could be set atop an ottoman for decor or used as a serving tray.

Set of 4 Gold Plates // I could see gifting these to some of my girlfriends who love to host ladies’ nights. Such a pretty way to share an app or treat with one’s closest friends.

Moss & Mint Candle // While I love Christmas candles, I sometimes tire of cinnamon and balsam. Shake things up with this garden mint and soft moss blend in a colorful glass jar.

Terrace Lanterns // West Elm has some of the prettiest candleholders, and these are among my favorites. Gift with pillar candles or dried lavender to place inside.

Double Wall Hurricanes // Ideal for the hostess who loves to decorate year-round, these hurricanes have an interior space to add seasonal cuttings, stones, and flowers.

Lattice Ginger Jars // Again, these are a favorite gift of mine because of the endless ways to style them. Easily filled with flowers or used in a vignette on a side table, dinner table, or by the stove.

A Soft Throw // I own the softest throw in blush & David’s requested that I buy it for his man room in brown. We fight for it every evening! I also love this throw with poms & think it’d be a sweet gift for a new Momma to use in a nursery.

Gifts Under $50:

Mortar & Pestle // Ideal for the gal or guy who loves to make homemade guac. Gift with a bag of Tostitos chips and your favorite guacamole recipe, just for fun.

Seasonal Candle Holder //  Perfect for the new homeowner or friend who loves to decorate. I love the golden finish & this would look stunning as a centerpiece or atop a coffee table.

Gold Key Bottle Opener // I love functional items that are also decorative. It’s beautiful but can also open a beer, when needed!

Stone Soap Dish // Somehow, real soap and a dish is a little homier than the foaming pump kind.

Terracotta Vase // The neutral palette of this affordable, hand-thrown vase will go well in any home.

Winter Forest Soap and Candle // I wish I could have this woodsy evergreen and cinnamon scent in my house all year long.
