Nothing beats the look on someone’s face when you give them a gift they really love. Which is why we’ve wrapped up a gift guide that will guarantee you’ll see it again and again. From cooking supplies for your foodie friend to cozy throws for grandma, these presents have a place in the homes of everyone on your list.
For the Hostess with the Mostest:
The hostess with the mostest has guests over 24/7 during the holidays. Which means drinks are flowing and glasses are potentially leaving messes on tabletops. A new set of coasters and some expert bar tools will ensure that all hosting bases are covered.
Any expert host knows that you can never have too much servingware. And these come with a golden glimmer of luxe, holiday spirit.
For the Worker Bee:
They’ve never shied away from a hard day’s work. Reward that ethic and help make their day a little more beautiful with some pretty desk supplies, like this clean-lined minimalist set from Poketo.
All those books aren’t going to hold themselves up straight. Add some bling to their bookcase with these bookends from West Elm.
For Your Personal Tech-Supporter:
Anytime your computer or iPhone has a problem, this person is by your side. Show them how much you appreciate the lessons in tech by gifting them some shiny new gadgets, like a multi-functional bluetooth device or a lizard-embossed smartphone backup.
For the Hibernator:
Winter is calling…for you to cozy up with a hot cup of tea and a soft blanket. These gifts are perfect for rewarding a good host with a little relaxation after the holidays.
Looks like Aunt Cathy is sitting out sledding in exchange for a hot bath. Give her the spa treatment with scented candles and luxury towels.
For the Funky Artist-Type:
Oh, hi there pillows with faces and poufs with personality. Aelfie’s funky products were made for the artsy eclectic in your life.
They have a thing for conceptual art and Jeff Koons’ balloon sculptures. These gifts will allow your creative kin to announce their artistic passions loud and clear.
For the Glam Fashionista:
A chic, porcelain tray will hold all the pretty jewels and charms your fashionista family member wears throughout the day.
A fashionista’s home is hardly complete without a style-setting coffee table book. Throw in a refillable perfume bottle to help glam up their bathroom decor.
For the Globetrotter:
Your globetrotting cousin has finally made it home for the holidays! Give them a cork globe so they can mark their worldly travels and a carry-on cocktail kit to help them prepare for their next big adventure.
For Your Favorite Foodie:
For foodies, a good meal is as much about the process of making it as it is about the final result. Help make cooking time beautiful with a set of classic copper pots and heirloom-worthy cutting boards.
They’ll want to lick the pages of this delicious coffee table book clean.
For the Eco-Conscious Bohemian:
Give a gift that gives back to the boho beauty in your life. Made from locally sourced sweetgrass, the profits for this vibrant basket fund educational programs for female artisans in Africa. Zen-like vibes and 100% sustainable bamboo thread are the make-up of the minimal boho wall hanging on the right.
For the Workout Junkie:
With this stylish gear, your workout buddy’s exercise routine will be better by design.
For the Little Ones:
Give the little ones in your life a cozy, cute hideout where they can snuggle up or stretch their playful imaginations.
Stuffed animals that can double as nursery decor are a great bet for young kiddos.
For the Home that Needs an Expert Touch:
Their Pinterest boards are perfection but this person just can’t seem to bring those ideas to life at home. Give them the gift of an expert designer who will finally help them love where they live. With a Laurel & Wolf Gift Card, they’ll get a truly personalized present: a home that’s unique as they are.
For the Philanthropist:
Most of us are lucky enough to have a roof over our heads, food in our bellies and a holiday wish list that will likely be granted. But we know not everyone has the same. For your friend who’s more concerned with the state of the world than themselves, make a donation in their name to a charity that aims to give everyone a happy home.
