Gift Guide: For The Home Decor Lover


I love to shop just as much as the next gal, but my ultimate guilty pleasure is not clothing, or makeup, or shoes. It is 100% home decor items…the addiction is real, friends. 

I would so much rather invest in an amazing bar cart or vintage garden stool over a new cashmere sweater (gimmie) or cheeky pair of flats ( can't.stand.the.cuteness).

Above I've rounded up some of my favorites, all of which would make the perfect gift for that lady or gent in your life that loves to dress up their living space.


1. I have been eying this Peacock Ally bed rest pillow for a while now. This one however, is a great cost-effective alternative!

2. This candelabra definitely speaks for itself. Make it your center piece or place it on your side board table, and change up the color of your votives frequently because, why not?!

3. I have a thing for Nantucket baskets (did you see my wedding gift from J? Insert starry eyed emoji here). I am in love with this Wedgewood vegetable bowl which would pair perfectly with our everyday china

4. After moving around a few times, I discovered the key to making your home actually feel like a home, is getting your favorite art work and personal pictures hung up on the wall. In our first apartment I think we made it as far as hanging one giant mirror and it always drove me crazy!! Framebridge has gorgeous frames for an incredible cost and they will do all the work for you! (collage photo credit)

5. Cocktail/Dinner napkins are an easy way to add rich color and fun prints to your space. Don't tuck them away in the drawer. Leave your dining table set even if you aren't having a party and display your cocktail squares around the room, on a side table or on the bar area.

6. Remember this piece from my playroom vignette? I can't get enough of it. What a great item for the holidays to hang above your couch or in your foyer. Place it in the kids room or on your bar during other months of the year.

7. Coffee table books are great to collect. I usually have at least one on my Christmas wish list each year (currently wanting this one and this one). There really is a CTB out there for everyone. Not only are they are great to display, but they are also fun to revisit every now and then for a little inspiration. Giving one for a gift? Make sure to write a great (dated) inscription on the inside cover for a memorable keepsake.

8. Bud vases are perfect for your powder room, kitchen windowsill, or bedside table. Clip a few delicate stems from your backyard (or your neighbors - eek! I'm guilty of this) and tuck them in little unexpected corners of your home.

9. There is nothing better than gifting a fantastic smelling candle (I burn an assortment of favorites on a daily basis). But step it up a notch by finding great scent that also comes in a statement ceramic jar or colorful tin (anthro kills it in this dept.). I mean, how gorgeous is this deep Caribbean blue jar
Tip: Keep the jar when the candle has burned out and re-purpose it! Store your makeup brushes or fill with dried lavender for a calming bedtime scent.

10. Three words: Big. Plush. Towels. There is nothing worse than getting out of the shower into the cold air and trying to dry off with a stiff, barely-there towel. I am seriously coveting these gorgeous ikat bath towels. Use them after your shower or out by the pool!

11. A fun play on the traditional garden stool, this little elephant would look amazing tucked under an entry way table, or placed front and center as a side table in your living room! With that sale price, how could you not?

12. I know, broken record…the bar cart. But this is an area of your room where you can have fun, be impractical, and constantly change it up! You can find a great cart for literally any budget - this one is Threshold for Target (aka a great price) but makes such a statement! I'm loving that bottom rack for extra storage, and the wheels for easy mobility - And it's on sale today for Cyber Monday! Win, win win!
