Gifts to Brighten the Home

Covering everything from art to technology—with a few spirited stops in between—gifts for the home are always appreciated. Whether you’re collecting a small stock of hostess gifts or looking for that just-right token that speaks to the heart of a friend, they’re all here.

A cozy throw blanket is a perfect starting point for a gift that encourages cuddling. Put together a set of mugs for cocoa lovers, or a pair of champagne flutes for festive, at-home reveling. A vintage-style Marshall speaker completes the setting for this romantic party for two.

Bibliophiles will rejoice at the sight of beautiful books ranging in topics from fashion history to interior design. You might consider picking up a couple—one for you and one for gifting—and suggesting a post-holiday book club. This ensures that at least one copy will make it to the intended recipient. True story: my very own sister bought me a book for Christmas one year and kept it for three years before it finally made it into my hands.

A cheery frame (with a perfectly filtered picture, of course) offers the best of both worlds, adding a personalized touch to a classic form-meets-function gift. Likewise, a trinket box gives practicality a playful disguise.

Bottle stoppers bring a cool, vintage vibe to a bar cart or a holiday table, and have year-round appeal in quirky or classic designs. Go full-on swanky with a glamorous glass decanter and a charming set of luxurious tumblers, presented on a sleek serving tray—the perfect anchor for that elegant look.

Holiday Gift Ideas for the Hostess

Gifting season is officially upon us, and finding the perfect present for all your favorite folks can be a daunting task (to say the least). We’ve got clever and creative ideas for what to get all the ladies on your list.


Clockwise, from left: The Selby is in Your Place, Red Flower candle, American Fashion Designers at Home, Jonathan Adler bottle opener, Lunares ice cream holder.

For the lady who hosts. Whether she’s throwing a fête for friends or a family affair, a little something for the hostess is a sweet way to show your appreciation. These gifts should be understated and simple. Anything too flashy or expensive will only embarrass her.

For the host with a classic sensibility, go with a simple candle with a bold scent. A unique use of a Mason jar will fit right into a modern-rustic aesthetic, while a sleek-lined Red Flower candle will create an inviting ambiance in any home. A bottle of wine is always a welcomed gift. Up the ante by offering your favorite red or white with a matching wine carafe.

If your hostess has a playful side, she’ll love a cheeky (and useful) Jonathan Adler mustache bottle opener, or whimsical takes on comfort classics by Lunares: the pint ice cream holder and the Chinese takeout holder, both in shiny silver.
