Hi again! I’m back from the Thanksgiving holiday with the latest installment in my gift guide series! I thought I’d give them a rest over the holiday, since I know I couldn’t take one more person telling me what to buy over the weekend. Plus, it gave me some time to think through the items a little further.
As I mentioned, I wanted to split products for the home into two guides, since we are spending so much time at home these days and there were a lot of items that seemed timely.
With that, here are my picks for gifts for the home!
The Laundress Dry Cleaning Detox Kit ($53): I LOVE The Laundress. This kit comes with some of my favorite products from them for washing wool, cashmere and delicates, intended to limit your recipient’s trips to the dry cleaner. This is especially perfect for anyone who loves sweaters, since it makes caring for them really simple.
Public Goods Subscription ($59): For a $59 annual subscription, your recipient will get access to sustainable and affordable household and personal care items that can be delivered right to their door. Public Goods also has beautiful minimalist packaging that fits any home décor style.
Artemis Frame ($42): This beautiful, fair trade frame from Matr Boomie is made of ethically sourced bone in a mosaic chevron pattern (gifted). It would be so sweet to include a photo of you and your recipient, especially since we’ve all spent so much time apart this year.
Silicone Stretch Covers ($29.95): Store food with this set of six stretchy, pharmaceutical-grade lids that are sustainable, eco-friendly replacements for plastic wrap and aluminum foil. Microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe. These covers are thick and stay in place well, too!
Acacia Heart Bowl ($40): This bowl is handmade by artisans in the Philippines and is perfect for snacks or storing jewelry and other small items.
Stasher Bags (Price varies): These make my gift guide every year. Most people love them for on-the-go (which they are great for, though we aren’t going anywhere this year!) – but I especially love them for prepping and storing vegetables in my fridge.
Moon Phases Tea Towel ($18): Add a little magic to the kitchen with this 100% cotton tea towel. Calhoun & Co. is based in Brooklyn, New York and makes blankets, tea towels, totes and more that have positive messages and an uplifting vibe.
Minimalist Tea Kettle ($169): This minimalist electric kettle will look great on your recipient’s counter. Heats 3.8 cups of water to your preferred temperature for pour-over coffee and tea.
Jyotisha Constellation Keepsake Box ($20): I have, and love, this keepsake box from Matr Boomie (gifted). Ethically handcrafted in north central India from sustainably harvested mango wood and reclaimed bone, this box features a burnished brass inlaid constellation design. This would make for a beautiful and thoughtful gift for a friend or jewelry lover.
The Immigrant Cookbook ($28): This award-winning cookbook is a culinary celebration of the many ethnic groups that have contributed to America’s vibrant food culture, featuring recipes by renowned chefs from Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Europe. And, $5 from the sale of each book is donated to the American Civil Liberties Union to support the ACLU’s Immigrant’s Rights Project.
Paloma Wall Hanging ($138): A bit of a splurge, but a great gift for a loved one who “has everything.” Conejo & Co. creates stunning modern tapestries that are hand-painted, designed and assembled by artist and owner Molly Millar Dodge in her studio in Los Angeles, California. Each tapestry is made from Lithuanian flax linen, one of the most sustainable fabrics produced today — using just a quarter of the water that cotton requires during processing.
Thanks for stopping by! Are any of these items a good fit for someone on your list?
