Our next gift guide is essentially a list of everything I want for my own home. Which makes me think that, since I’m obsessed with decorating, lots of other people might like these things in their homes, too. I tried to keep it fairly universal, though, since home decor is incredibly personal. I’d never buy anyone a major piece of furniture or an accessory in any other color besides “neutral” (unless it was my husband because in that case I’d essentially be buying it for myself) because there would be a good chance that it wouldn’t be the right style, or size, or color.
That said, there are still plenty of things left over to buy someone who loves decorating, entertaining, and being a domestic diva. Like these things. (Shop them all at the bottom of the post!)
From Top Left:
Turkish towels. Turkish towels, like these ones from Turkish T, are a classic that also happens to be a major trend at the moment. I use them in both my bathroom as hand towels and my kitchen as tea towels. They make a simple but appreciated gift with some fancy hand soap (I love Aesop!)
A French press. For the domestic diva that also happens to be a caffeine addict, this Le Creuset french press from Williams-Sonoma is equal parts pretty and practical.
A gold vase that only looks expensive. I love having vases like this around, because they look just as good empty on a bookshelf as they do with a few buds in them. PLUS, it’s only $10!
Cute cereal bowls. Your roommate/best friend/work wife will thank you for making mornings just a teeny bit more pleasant with these adorable bowls from West Elm for $8 a pop.
Good white sheets. There is not a person alive that doesn’t like things that make them more comfortable when they sleep which makes good white sheets the perfect gift for literally anyone. Brookelinen is one of the hottest Internet brands of the moment, and their sheets are supposed to be divine.
A decorative corkscrew. With the rise of the bar cart comes the need for bar accessories that are stylish enough to be left out all the time. This little brass corkscrew from CB2 fits the bill.
A faux-fur blanket. Faux fur is my favorite winter textile because it’s as chic as it is cozy, which is why I’m obsessed with this Pottery Barn blanket. (My husband and I actually fight over it.)
A fun candle. Candles are kind of a generic gift, unless they say something fun like “I like your face,” because then they’ll make the recipient smile every time they look at it.
