Royal Gift Guide: Presents for the Home

Hi everyone! Hope you all had fabulous weekends. I spent mine doing lots of fun stuff - playing with babies, seeing movies, spending the day in San Diego visiting R’s grandparents - but I managed to squeeze in some time for Hanukkah gift shopping... the holidays are right around the corner!

In that vein, I thought I’d try and help my readers out by creating several gift guides! Every day this week, I’ll be posting a group of beautiful things that hopefully will help you find something perfect for someone special in your life.

Today’s gift guide is designed for someone who loves decorating their home and surrounding themselves with beautiful things and trinkets. Let’s take a look, shall we?


A fantastic gift is a cozy throw! I can’t think of anything snugglier than one of these beautiful blankets, especially in this season’s major print - chevron! ($150)

I love these little heart bowls - perfect for filling with M&Ms for entertaining! I also envision one set out in an entryway to keep track of your keys - smart, right? ($71)

One of my favorite things to buy someone as a gift is a gorgeous picture frame. Take it a step further and put a picture of you and the recipient inside it so it’s all ready to be displayed! I love the pretty colors and patterns of these Haymarket frames. ($40-$50)

How fun is this Jonathan Adler mug? It’s got the face of a king on one side and the face of a queen on the other. Royally perfect! ($26)

Yall - I am seriously dying over this olive oil jug. You KNOW how I feel about rainbows and stripes. Best part is - it comes already filled with delicious, high-quality olive oil, and once you’ve used it all up, it’ll look gorgeous on your shelf! ($48)

I’ve had my eye on this jewelry holder for a long time - it’s so delicate and beautiful. What a gorgeous way to display treasured necklaces, bracelets, and earrings! ($98)

I can’t imagine any lover of interior design/decorating NOT wanting one of these coffee table books. I own Grace Bonney’s Design*Sponge At Home - it’s fantastic - and I have my eye on Deborah Needleman’s (of Domino fame, RIP) The Perfectly Imperfect Home. (Each under $20!)

Personally, I would squeal of happiness if I opened a present containing any one of these! Let me know what you think - see anything you want yourself?

Check back tomorrow for another gift guide - this time featuring some great accessories for the techie in your life!
