It’s official: Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" has re-entered the top 200 on iTunes’s U.S. charts—and we all know what that means: the most wonderful time of the year is here. While we’ve all enjoyed a summer of frozen margs at sunset, there’s nothing quite like holing up at home during the holidays. Plus, this year’s design trends have skewed snugglier than ever, and we predict that 2021 will be the coziest Christmas yet. That said, there’s a group of people who have been hunkering down at home long before quarantine started—and we think they deserve their very own gift guide. Read on to see 35 of the best gifts for every kind of homebody—from the hygge hostess to the movie connoisseur.

The 15 Best Home Decor Gifts for Design Obsessives (And Anyone Dreaming of a Chicer Space)


1. Cozychic Throw Blanket

When we tell you that people are *obsessed* with this throw blanket…we’re not exaggerating. It’s soft, stretchy, fade-resistant and it doesn’t shed. The only problem? Pets seem to adore it, and we cannot take how adorable they look snuggled up.


2. Neom Intensive Skin Treatment Candle

Stop what you’re doing because we just found the most insane candle ever. Not only does it smell fantastic with notes of anxiety-relieving lavender, calming jasmine and sedative Brazilian rosewood that are released when it's burned, but the candle’s hot wax is meant to be drizzled over your skin as a moisturizer.


3. The Flax Sleep Set

This set includes a duvet cover, fitted sheet, flat sheet and four pillowcases (!!). It’s number one on editor Rachel Bowie’s wish list this year, who says: “my friends are raving about Flax, a new bedding brand. Not kidding, this is a text I got from a friend this week: ‘One night sleep only, but I give it five stars.’” Considering the linen only gets softer with each wash, a rave review right out of the box immediately grabbed our attention.


4. Jonathan Adler Versailles Playing Card Set

A set of playing cards that’s actually chic? Leave it to Jonathan Adler to create a deck of cards that are just as pretty as they are playable.

Urban Outfitters

5. Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 Instant Camera

If your childhood looked anything like ours, there’s a stack of Polaroids somewhere of you and your siblings, wearing matching pajamas and passed out on the sofa (presumably, waiting for Santa). Gift this to a sister or brother who would love to recreate some warm memories this Christmas Eve.


6. Copper Moscow Mule Set

We all have that one friend who loves their Moscow mules, and this bar set includes four 18-ounce mugs, four marble coasters, four metal straws, and one stirrer, shot cup and recipe book. Plus, it’s crafted from copper to make sure their mules look as stylish as they are perfectly chilled.

Urban Outfitters

7. Amped Fleece Boo Pillow

A backrest pillow for someone who’s obsessed with cozying up their space. This one’s topped with a durable canvas handle that’s easy for toting and has a convenient side pocket that can house their smart devices as they’re binging the new season of You.


8. Homebody Full Spectrum Of Possibilities Pearlescent Cbd Bath Soak

Can you really classify someone as a ‘homebody’ if they’re not taking long, relaxing bubble baths? We think not, and this bath soak is infused with 50 milligrams of full-spectrum CBD to melt away the stress and anxiety of the outside world.

Uncommon Goods

9. Unwind Lavender Gift Set

Speaking of calming things down, we recommend gifting this lavender grow kit to the sibling with four chaotic kids (because if anyone needs to chill out, it’s her). The set includes a bamboo pot and lavender seeds with a simple self-watering system, a soy blend candle with notes of orange blossom, lavender and cedarwood, a pillow spray with lavender, citrus, cedarwood and ylang-ylang scents and a super-soft, no-slip cotton eye mask.


10. Ring Video Doorbell

A video doorbell for someone who’s always ordering things from Amazon—because we would say home security is essential for someone who, um, never leaves the house.


11. Cloud BouclÉ Accent Pillow

Fact: Boucle textiles and decor are all the rage, and this woven cream pillow is the perfect accent to freshen up your friend’s sofa.


12. Christian Lacroix Frivolities Set Of Two Puzzles

A set of two uniquely shaped puzzles that are bold enough to double as decor. Not to mention that they both feature iconic trademark designs from the Christian Lacroix Heritage Collection.

Our Place

13. Our Place Always Pan

A cult-favorite cooking appliance that can do it all (i.e., sear, fry, sauté, boil, braise and more). An excellent go-to for someone who loves cheffing up comfort food for the whole family.


14. Sextrology: The Astrology Of Sex And The Sexes

This one goes out to your Scorpio friend, who seems to have an insatiable sex drive. Sextrology draws insight from modern astrology to help people find their perfect sexual match. So gift it to a friend or use it at home to spice up your cozy hygge Christmas night in.


15. Bearaby Cotton Napper Weighted Blanket

This is our top pick for the person who’s always stressed out while WFH. The density of this weighted blanket adds physical pressure to the body that can ease anxiety and increase the release of serotonin (aka the happy chemical) in the brain for a calming effect.


16. Slip Lovely Lashes Pure Silk Contour Sleep Mask

For the friend who loves her lash extensions and hates leaving the house. The mask has contoured spots, so it doesn’t crush your lashes, and it’s made of light-blocking mulberry silk for a truly luxurious feel.


17. Mini Concrete Fireplace

Ever heard of snow day s’mores? Neither have we—but we think this mini fireplace would be *perfect* for roasting marshmallows while snowed in this winter.

Saks Fifth Avenue

18. Grosche Amsterdam Pour Over Coffee Maker

A chic pour-over coffee maker for your sister’s meticulously decorated kitchen. This one from Grosche is made of double-walled glass to retain the heat of the brewing water, ensuring a total flavor extraction every time. See ya, Starbucks.


19. Movie Geek Quiz Game

We all have one person in our lives who, without fail, always wants to stay home and watch a movie. Gift this to your movie-loving friend to see if they really know as much as IMDb.


20. Voluspa Japonica Advent Calendar Candle Set

Can’t decide which Voluspa scent your candle-loving friend will like best? Now you don’t have to. This advent calendar includes 12 signature scents from the Japonica collection to keep the cozy candles burning all winter long.


21. Brooklinen Linen Core Sheet Set

This one goes out to the Gen Zer who’s always in bed. These cooling linen sheets are deliciously soft and made with Oeko-Tex certified Belgian and French Flax, making them an eco-friendly choice as well.


22. Nodpod Weighted Eye Mask

For your friend who won’t shut up about her weighted blanket. This weighted eye mask uses nine ounces of gentle pressure to fight migraines and relieve anxiety—and we guarantee it’ll be their new obsession.

Urban Outfitters

23. Kodak Luma 75 Pocket Projector

A pocket projector that you can connect to your smartphone for impromptu movie nights anytime, anywhere. If only there were a pocket popcorn maker to go with it.


24. Supernova Electric Aromatherapy Diffuser

The holidays are hectic, and we figure the hermit in your life will need all the calm they can get. This chic aromatherapy diffuser will send the smell of lavender (or whatever essential oil you choose) wafting through the air to instantly transform the vibe of their space.


25. Ui Mug & Warmer Set

This mug and warmer set will make hectic mornings infinitely cozier. The mug comes with a special charger that uses magnetic induction energy to heat the metallic layering on the bottom of the cup—so it stays warm longer—and it doubles as a phone charger.


26. Sophia + Sam Memory Foam Lap Desk

Behold: a must-have item for the workaholic. This memory foam lap desk can turn any spot into an office and has a hard surface that prevents laptops from overheating. We’re hoping this will help with their sore back (because we can’t keep hearing the complaints).


27. Sir Madam Solid Brass Coasters (set Of 4)

A perfect set of patina coasters for comfy cocktails by the fire. Plus, each one is backed with natural cork to protect tables and countertops—a detail that the type-A homebody will appreciate most.


28. Oblio Wireless Charger & Uv Cleaner

A wireless charger that also sanitizes your smartphone? We guarantee this will bring pure joy to the germaphobe who’s always texting (or scrolling TikTok).


29. Parachute Oversized Rib-knit Throw

A chic oversized throw for your decor-loving grandmother (because we know how much she loves Christmas movies while wrapped in a blanket).

Urban Outfitters

30. Karaoke Microphone

For the friend who loves to sing and hates getting dressed up. Most of us will agree: Karaoke wine nights with PJ’s and facemasks are way better than the club-hopping of our twenties.


31. Little Bambino Retro Popcorn Popper

What does a homebody do with all of their time indoors? They binge-watch their favorite movies (especially during the winter). Get ‘em an old-fashioned popcorn maker so they can bring the AMC experience to their sofas.


32. Buffy Wiggle Body Pillow

Need something for the expecting mother in your life? Well, Buffy’s sherpa pregnancy pillow is made with 100 percent recycled PET and BPA-free filling, so they won’t have to worry about harmful or toxic chemicals. And thanks to its squishy and flexible construction, it can be tied up in a knot and tossed on the bed when they’re not using it.

Uncommon Goods

33. Bedside Smartphone Vase

Let’s face it: We love winter’s holiday cheer, but we can’t stand its gloomy, cloudy sky. That’s why we love this bedside smartphone vase. Gift it to someone to quite literally brighten their day.


34. Comfier Towel Warmer Bucket

This fast-heating towel warmer has a simple one-touch control that can provide up to 60 minutes of heat. Because getting out of the shower in the dead of winter is almost too frigid to bear.


35. Sunday Citizen Meditation Pillow

Did you know that meditation can ease symptoms of anxiety, depression and pain? Practicing it on the reg could have a positive impact on mental health, and we think it’d make the perfect gift for the friend who’s always raving about her Calm app.
