When it comes to holiday shopping, it can be hard to get something for everyone on your list. Many items are fraught with peril and require full knowledge of return policies and gift receipts that can get lost and complicated. Or guessing the wrong size might create other issues. And maybe somebody just doesn’t like your taste. You can avoid all these issues by going with a home décor gift. No matter the style of the home—or whether you’ve stepped inside before—you can find a gift for everyone on your list, from casual acquaintances to the BFF you know is a devoted fashionista.

 

White Elephant Party

White Elephant parties are rampant this time of year, everywhere from the office to family events. Take a literal, yet chic, twist on a gift idea with some very cute white elephants that can fit into any home.

For the host/hostess

Bottles of wine or booze are never a bad idea, but instead of adding to the liquor shelf, give them something that will stand out from the crowd. Accessories for a bar or bar cart can help to enhance an existing collection and help make you a memorable guest. Check out these ideas:

 

A bar tool set always comes in handy and lets guests play mixologist

Whiskey glasses and stones are perfect for the whiskey connoisseur and let you off the hook for picking out the wrong whiskey.

Flowers are also another traditional gift for hosts and hostesses that are always welcome. Instead of sending a busy host scrambling for a vase and water, present flowers already in water or just the vase wrapped up in pretty paper.

A pitcher can play dual roles, acting as a vessel for flowers or as a serving piece at a later time.

For the fashionista

Stylish women can be difficult to buy for. Give them something that is on trend, but will meet their high standards.

 

Lavish hangers are a surprise gift that is welcome in any well-organized closet.

A faux fur throw or textured throw is an on-trend piece that will keep them warm and cozy through the cold. Or enhance a bare wall that they’ve been looking to update.

When all else fails, candles are great presents. Make yours extra special with a unique shape or twist that can fit into any home décor scheme and will outlast the sparkle of the holidays

Plants are another great gift, because they last longer than flowers. Make yours extra stylish with a terrarium kit featuring easy-to-take-care-of succulent plants.
