We can all agree on one thing: the 2020 holiday season is going to look much different than years past. Maybe you’re sitting down to dinner with your immediate family only and streaming the cousins in via Zoom. Or maybe your friend crew is quarantining together for the foreseeable future (lucky you!). Whatever the case, you’re still going to need some cozy throws for the nesters, bar essentials to give to the entertainers and agate bookends that the design-obsessed people in your life will gush over. And for that, we present you with a comprehensive list of 50 home décor items (and yes, a wine aerator is considered décor in our book). The best part? These picks start at just $8. Have at ‘em.

4. Cinnamon Projects You Are Here Special Edition Incense
For those who aren’t into candles (trust, it’s a thing) there’s this special edition incense from Cinnamon Projects, which burns with notes of musk, patchouli, rose and sandalwood. It even comes in a chic glass tube and foil-stamped paper gift box, so no wrapping is necessary.

Your trendy sister likely already has the stylish and functional Our Place Always Pan. But she probably doesn’t have this new spruce steamer basket for perfecting her dumpling-making skills. It’s just as good looking as the Always Pan, and it also comes with one set of bamboo cooking chopsticks, 25 paper liners and a natural loofah sponge for easy cleanup.
