Home is where the heart is – especially if you’re a big fan of cozy nights in like we are. If you’re looking to give some gifts for the home this holiday season, here’s what we’ve loved decking our halls with all year long.
For your friend that likes to feel boujee from time to time:
An architectural object that’s worthy of being displayed on your kitchen countertop…and open your bottle of San Pellegrino (or, you know, Miller High Life).
All terrazzo everything, please. Snag this for your friend that’s been eyeing the style but isn’t quite ready for a full floor installation yet.
These glasses set the tone for fancy evenings, even when you’d rather stay in to celebrate them. Have a friend who’s been trying to master the art of at-home cocktails? This is the perfect simple-but-special addition to their bar cart.
Luxurious and good for your hair too, this is the gift your friend/sister/roommate/partner will talk about for the next full calendar year.
For your friend that's always trying a new recipe:
Looking for a perfect hosting cookbook? The author of this one gives you an intimate look into her California home nestled in the woods, full of gatherings and good food. This is the type of cookbook you’ll go back to time and time again – making it the gift that keeps on giving.
This is the new kid on the block in terms of cookware, but WOW is it pretty. You know how sometimes if you’re not feeling like adulting, a new outfit will help you fake it ‘til you make it? That’s what we’re hoping for from this cookware, too. Maybe, just maybe, it’s pretty enough to inspire cooking for many a-winter night to come.
Chrissy Teigen is our fave (wannabe) gal pal with a passion for food and all the best cooking tips. Gift this to your friend who wants to start a cookbook club or do all the cooking for a #GNIvibes dinner party.
Fancy olive oil is one of the best gifts you can give a home cook — because she most likely wouldn’t go out of her way to buy it herself, and most likely will use it in her daily life. We love this beautifully packaged olive oil “made with hand-picked heirloom Arbosana and Arbequina olives” from Brightland. Fancy shmancy.
For your friend that has everything:
It’s everything you’ve ever wanted – an actual crystal ball, minus the Disney characters. This piece gives good vibes all around and is a lovely addition of any self-care sanctuary.
Have a friend who’s starting her first serious art collection? This is a thoughtful gift that can go towards a purchase. Check out Tappan’s “under $300” collection for works by some of our favorite artists like Marleigh Culver.
Breathe in, now breathe out. This porcelain diffuser is perfect for your friend that’s had a stressful year or someone who’s tiptoeing into aromatherapy for the first time.
For your friend with a not-so-green thumb:
A little greenery goes a long way when decorating a just-purchased home or new apartment. Good news: Nobody said the green needed to be real. This faux-liage is the perfect piece for a plant-lover that’s just not looking for the responsibility that comes with keeping something alive.
Not everybody has a way with plants, and that’s okay. Eliminate one thing to worry about – dirt, in this case – and your friend group’s notorious plant killer might have better luck getting her garden started.
This plant is part of the “Easy for Beginners” collection and comes complete with an adorable, cheery planter. Easy peasy for even your laziest friend. ;)
