6 holiday presents for the home
Holiday shopping can be stressful. Trying to pick gifts that are thoughtful, unique and useful is no easy task. Check out this list of home-related presents that are sure to please and be put to good use.
You can never have too many comfortable throws. Give your loved ones the gift of warmth with cozy cotton blankets. If you know the recipient well, choose a color that fits with his or her existing decor. If it is for an acquaintance, pick a neutral tone that can easily blend with any design aesthetic, notes BobVila.com. For an extra special touch, consider getting the throw monogrammed with the initials or last name of its future owner.
2. Specialty glasses
Drink-specific glasses are a great gift for friends who have a favorite beverage. For wine enthusiasts, purchase stemless cups for a classy and unique twist on traditional glassware. Tequila lovers will be excited to unwrap margarita glasses, while fans of bubbly brews will go crazy for personalized beer steins. When in doubt, a set of top-notch shot glasses is usually a safe choice for people who like to entertain, notes lifestyle website SheKnows.
While this idea might seem a bit overdone, today’s candle selection is broader and better than ever before, notes Real Simple magazine. From “manly” scents, like wood and cologne, to sweet chocolate cake, you can find the perfect smell for everyone on your shopping list. Packaging for these tried-and-true presents has also been improved in recent years, so it will be easy to find one that perfectly compliments the recipient’s personal style.
For something a little unexpected that will be much appreciated, try giving the welcoming gift of a personalized doormat. Choose a tone that will enhance the curb appeal of your loved one’s home and have it labeled with his or her initials, suggests BobVila.com. If you are shopping for someone very close to you, try choosing one with a quirky message that fits his or her personality.
5. Portable heaters
What better way to save your friends from the blistering cold of the holiday season than with a personal portable heater? Choose from a variety of colors for a stylish way to keep your loved ones warm and toasty.
6. House plant
Bring some fresh life into your friends’ lives by giving out plants this winter. SheKnows suggests giving a Japanese Bonsai tree because they represent happiness and good luck.
