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:


Brass Arc Bottle Opener (East Fork, $65)

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).

Sepon Terrazzo Vase (The Citizenry, $75)

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.

Rosy Cheeked Coupes (BHLDN, $40)

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.

Slip Silk Pillowcase (Nordstrom, $85)

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:


Forest Feast Gatherings: Simple Menus for Hosting Friends and Family (Amazon, $14)

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.

The Dutchess Dutch oven (Great Jones, $145)

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.

Cravings: Hungry for More by Chrissy Teigen (Amazon, $20))

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.

Brightland Olive Oil in Alive (Brightland, $37)

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:


Crystal Ball (Sunday Forever, $46)

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.

Gift card for buying art (Tappan Collective, $50)

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.

Vitruvi Porcelain Essential Oil Diffuser (Nordstrom, $119)

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:


Metaflora Faux Fan Palm + Anthurium Bouquet (West Elm, $59)

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.

Hydropod (W&P, $40)

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.

ZZ Plant in Yellow Planter (The Sill, $40)

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. ;)
