Since we're all spending so much time at home these days, it's never been more important to create a space that you're both comfortable in and love. Below are ten items that we love and we think you or someone on your gift-giving list might too. So take a look at these home decor gift ideas that are sure to brighten up anyone's day and space, long after the holiday season comes to a close. 

1. Plants

Did you know that nature can provide stress relief, increase social interaction, encourage physical exercise and even help soothe mental illness? That's why we have plants on our list of must-haves and these succulents from Amazon are a personal fave, not only because they take minimal effort to take care of, but they come potted! 


2. Framed Art

Framing art can be super expensive, so that's why I love Society 6! I've started a gallery wall since COVID began and it makes my day just a little bit better...plus, it's a great backdrop on Zoom calls! New with art decor? Start with a black and white photo that'll be sure to match your wall and furniture, like this Highland Cow in a Vintage Bathrub Art Print. Don't forget, you can choose the color framing you want.


3. A Fancy Candle

Ah, the scent of a good candle can do wonders. Though Diptique Paris candles run expensive, they're worth every penny. My personal fave is their best-selling VERVEINE/LEMON VERBENA SMALL CANDLE. The scent of freshly picked whole lemon leaves mixed with a delicate lemony zest is both soothing for the mind and body...plus, they look so chic. Decor tip: keep them on your bathroom vanity!


4. A Decorative Tray

One of the first home decor items I purchased was a decorative tray and I'm super glad I did  not only because it has multiple uses and can be displayed in a variety of ways, but it's a cute accessory with no set-up necessary. This particular tray  from Chip and Joanna Gaines' exclusive Target line serves as a great vintage-inspired aesthetic for your space. 


5. A Comfy Blanket

What's better than cuddling up on your couch with a comfy blanket? Nothing. That's why this Loren Swan Throw blanket from Crate and Barrel is a must, plus it comes in multiple rich colors for the winter season. Decor tip: Drape on the arm of your chair, the foot of your bed or the couch! 


6. Pretty and Functional Woven Baskets

Finding ways to store items in a small space is tough, but it doesn't mean it can't look good! I have woven baskets in my studio apartment for that exact reason. These two pieces from World Market are tightly woven for added stability so you can load it up with blankets, magazines and more. One of them even serves as my "junk drawer".


7. Coffee Table Books

I think nothing is more stylish than a stack of coffee table books. Whether they're piled on your floor or on an actual coffee table, it's always in style. I have an array of topics, ranging from cocktail recipe books, to fashion and photography. This Annie Leibovitz - The Early Years, 1970-1983 book is a must-have for fashion lovers.


8. A Table Lamp

Now that I'm working from home, a table lamp was a must-have accessory. The "Fila" table topping show stopper features a powder-coated shade atop a spindly wire frame for a unique look. Plus, this Article lamp will look great on both your bedside table and your desk. Need some more work from home tips


9. A Stylish Piggy Bank

For some time, I found myself throwing change onto multiple surfaces and it's not a polished look  believe me. This is why I love Interior Illusions Plus Bronze Mini Balloon Dog Bank, because not only is it incredibly creative and artistic, it serves as a secret piggy bank!

10. A Wall Clock

I've never owned a wall clock until recently, but I've been loving this MALLHOPPA clock from Ikea. It's a clean and minimalistic style that brings a nice touch to my decor.
