1. Custom Doormats
Light up the porch or front door with a chic, personalized doormat. These mats are a lovely way to welcome friends, family and guests to your home.
Why we love this: Doormats are super practical — any home could use one! You can also show your support for small businesses by purchasing your custom doormat from Etsy.
Prices range from $30 to $60 depending on the mat size and level of customization.
2. Aromatherapy Sets
Never underscore the importance of self-care. Essential oils, reed diffusers and candles are perfect for the mind, soul and home.
For the fragrance lovers in your life, consider giving a home aromatherapy set or making a custom gift basket yourself. Essential oil diffusers are available in many stylish options that look great on a coffee table or shelf.
Why we love this: Use aromatherapy to create a calm and relaxing home atmosphere — essential for a work-from-home and stay-at-home lifestyle.
3. Kwik-Hang Curtain Rod Brackets
Give the gift of easy, stress-free home decor.
Kwik-Hang’s damage-free curtain rod brackets are a lifesaver for anyone who hates the hassle of installing curtain hardware and risking wall damage.
These brackets feature a patented no-drill design that allows you to hang your curtains (or take them down) in seconds. Just align the brackets with the window frame, tap them in with a hammer and you’re ready to put up your curtains! No screws, nails or drilling required — a.k.a. zero wall damage.
4. Charging Docks
Loose wires and cluttered charging cables aren’t conducive to a calm, relaxing home atmosphere. Keep your gadgets tidy and organized with a slim, modern charging dock like this Power Pad by Case-Mate.
Why we love this: These sleek docks look great on your nightstand, work station or living room side table. Charge your phone, smart watch or earbuds conveniently without having to fumble for the cables on the floor.
5. Classy Coasters
Spice up the dining table with a set of beautiful coasters! We love these bold metal two-tone coasters from West Elm (pictured above).
If you’re looking for something more subtle with clean lines, take a look at this white marble hexagon set from Cost Plus World Market.
Why we love this: Coasters always come in handy. The kitchen, bar cart or coffee table isn’t complete without a collection of coasters for different occasions!
6. Acrylic Wall Calendar
Wall calendars never looked so good! Those working or studying from home will enjoy having an acrylic dry-erase wall calendar to stay organized.
Jot down birthdays, important deadlines or reminders with a dry-erase pen and simply wipe clean once the week or month is over.
Why we love this: This functional accessory is a great way to modernize a bedroom, home office or study space and keep important events top of mind. Plus, it’s a sustainable solution for going paperless.
7. Marble and Wood Cutting Boards
Say goodbye to those scratched-up plastic cutting boards. A marble and wood cutting board (like this piece from West Elm) makes a great gift that’s practical and beautiful on display.
Why we love this: These boards aren’t just for slicing up your ingredients! Prop it up on the kitchen countertop, or use it as a charcuterie board.
8. Wine Cooler
A slim wine cooler makes the perfect gift for any wine fan. Keep bottles chilled while adding some pizzazz to happy hours and meals. Check out this stunning piece from Crate & Barrel (pictured above).
Why we love this: A cylindrical wine chiller also doubles as a vase. When you’re not chilling your favorite beverage, add fillers and flowers to create a stunning centerpiece.
9. Rustic Beverage Tubs
Rustic beverage bins complement mid-century modern or farmhouse home decor.
Here are a few ways to make good use of a rustic beverage tub:
- Place it on your porch or outdoor dining area to stash cold drinks for you and your guests.
- Transport it to picnics or the beach.
- Use it as indoor storage for living room blankets, firewood storage, pet toys and more.
Pro-tip: You can find these tubs for affordable prices at retailers like Target or HomeGoods.
Why we love this: What’s not to love about a durable, multipurpose beverage storage solution?
10. Custom Pet Portraits
Deck the walls with modern pet portraits of your furry (or feathery) friends!
Check out online services like West & Willow (pictured above) or Iconic Paw. All you have to do is upload a photo of your pet and add customization options (like your pet’s name or a silly outfit). You’ll receive a custom illustration handcrafted by a digital artist — perfect for displaying in your living room or bedroom!
Prices range from $40 to $110 depending on print size, number of pets or framing.
Why we love this: Pet owners will appreciate the thoughtfulness behind this present! Custom pet portraits make a great holiday or housewarming gift.
