Hey y’all! Still have some Christmas shopping to do? I’ve rounded up some of my favorite gifts for your “home decorator” friend or family member, but honestly, they are great gifts for anyone. When I’m brainstorming gift ideas I try to think of something functional and useful.
- The Retro Toaster
How cute is this retro toaster by Smeg?? Kitchen appliances are extremely practical gifts and this retro line is making them more stylish than ever! Gone are the days of getting out and putting away the toaster with each use. Now you can leave it on the counter as an adorable accent piece! (Pssst, this is on my personal Christmas list. Hehe)
- Potted Herbs
I got my first set of herbs last spring and instantly fell in love. Not only do they smell wonderful, but they can be useful for cooking, too! I recommend rosemary because it is a perennial plant that will come back year after year. At Lowes they have rosemary bushes that have been shaped like Christmas trees—how sweet! Make sure to choose a pretty planter to go along with it!
- Voluspa candles
You really can’t go wrong giving candles. Voluspa is my new favorite brand. All the scents smell great (rich and fresh, but not overpowering) and their various packaging is really cute. They look perfect on the coffee table or in the powder room. You can find them at Nordstrom or online at amazon.
- Magazine subscription
It’s the gift that keeps giving! This is something that people don’t typically buy for themselves (unless they are bored at the airport), so gift someone with a year subscription to Southern Living or Garden and Gun (Only $19.98 for 1 year!). They will be thanking you all year long!
Ornaments can be really sentimental gifts. My best friend started a tradition by giving me one every year. I love unpacking my Christmas decorations and being reminded of my sweet friend! I’ve talked about where to buy ornaments in a previous post, but hit up your local gift store or Etsy for something more personalized!
What are some of your favorite gifts this year?? I would love to hear them! Thanks for stopping in…happy shopping;)
