As someone who orders takeout far too often, is a stickler for creating the perfect ambiance, and considers going out as the least ideal way to spend a Friday night, I'd say I can proudly claim the title of a homebody. Chances are, you or someone on your Christmas list shares the same description. Finding the perfect gift for someone who values their cozy abode might require a bit of finessing, but fear not—I've got you covered! Drawing from my own experience as a homebody, here are my 14 gift ideas that will make your fellow homebody feel genuinely appreciated and will remind them that there's truly no place like home for the holidays.
GIFTS FOR THE HOMEBODY
If you're into cooking, 'The Farm Table Cook Book' by Julius Roberts will be your new go-to. I got this cook book just this October and I’ve already made a decent dent. Warning: the tarragon chicken will devour your taste buds. It's. So. Good.
These HAY Design Crates are the most versatile and under-rated gift! I have probably 5 in each room of my house. I can’t get enough. Use them for food storage, bathroom organization, shoes, or just to add some pop to your space.
Set the mood with Aesop's Aromatique Incense. I love that Aesop is a natural non-toxic alternative to other fragrance items on the market. Also this comes with an incense holder too! How easy. It'll give your place the coziest jazz club vibe, perfect for sniffing on those date nights or lazy weekends.
Rice paper lamps are all the rage recently!! This H&M home rice paper floor lamp adds some serious ambience with its gorgeous warm, soft lighting. It's low-key and suits any room style. Get rid of that horrendous overhead lighting, am I right?!
This bread bow knife is the kitchen tool you never knew you needed! Elevate your sourdough bread game with the product of the OG sourdough queen herself, Ballerina Farm. It’s a game-changer and makes cutting bread quick and easy (and safer!).
Wrap yourself in comfort with the Dusen Dusen Bathrobe. It's soft and stylish for your lazy days. Garmentory offers this robe in multiple colors on their site so have a perusal to see which colorway suits your vibe best!
Brew your morning coffee with style using the Yield Ceramic French Press. It's not just functional; it's a stunning decor piece. Actually, I have the whole ceramic french press bundle, complete with matching cups, spoons, and a serving plate, and it serves as a standout piece on my exposed kitchen shelves.
Bring the fun to your home with the Corknet Ping Pong Set from MoMA Store. It's perfect for a friendly match and adds some activities to the home. And did I mention, it’s hassle free to set up?! Bring it anywhere, it’s that simple.
Get rid of those eyesores of cords with the beautiful Rowena Sartin Organza Cord Cover. It's a simple way to add some elegance and comes in so many colors!
Who isn’t a fan of Our Place pans?! Well now they have a Dream Cooker! It’s an all-in-one multi-cooker that can save you up to 80% of your cooking time. Comes with a toxin-free nonstick coating. Set it and forget it with a hands-free steam release, automatic keep warm, and nine advanced safety features.
For board game lovers, the Printworks Chess Set is a fresh take on a classic game. The box is so cute it can even be a perfect coffee table piece.
Natural orange wine… need I say more?! Natural wine has some of the most aesthetic bottles and labels in the wine world, so it can even just sit beautifully in your kitchen. However, it’s also tasty as heck. Surprise your wine enthusiasts with some delicious natural wine for those cozy nights at home.
Make your space more personal with the Corey Moranis Picture Stand. Might we suggest using this for artfully displaying prints, pamphlets, or postcards, holding business cards on a front desk, or even using it as a paperweight. It’s on the more pricey end but every piece is hand-made in Toronto (yay canadian businesses!) and is truly a jaw-dropping art piece without even using it as a picture stand.
Now, it wouldn’t be an Anewall gift guide without including one of our designs, now would it?! Add some beauty and serenity to your space with our Watercolor Blue & Grey Cloud print. It's perfect for all home types and can be customized to any desired size!
I hope this list makes you excited to spoil your family and friends with these amazing home-based gifts! I’m predicting some canceled plans, because with a home as cushy and inviting as these picks, everyone will be in for some serious staycation time!
