Sparking joy during the holidays is no hard feat. For one, just think about all the festive decorations that scatter each and every corner come November through December. This season, keep the festivities going well after the new year with these 60 gifts for the home that are sure to spark joy for anyone on your list, from the pared-down minimalist to the more-is-more maximalist. Unlike other gifts, a chic interior will last a lifetime, and what’s a better gift than that?
Shopping for your friend with little ones? A cozy, sherpa-lined chair will look as good as it feels in their playroom, while toys like Baghera’s ride-on toy car or Little Nook’s dollhouse will keep their tiny tots well entertained. For the mid-century modernist with a liking for quirky designs and bold colors, find Cold Picnic’s geometric rug and striped oven mitts from Dusen Dusen. We bet you also know of someone on your list who identifies with the ‘coastal grandmother’ aesthetic—a woven basket from Altuzarra, ZDG’s porcelain dinnerware, and a set of printed napkins will help them lean into their obsession even more. For the man in your life, upgrade his interiors with a fringed throw blanket from Off-White or handcrafted wine stoppers from Brunello Cucinelli. And finally, for the minimalist and maximalist in your life, there are fabulous options that suit both sides, like a cashmere cushion from Christopher Kane or a decorative accent chair from House of Hackney, respectively.
Below, 60 gifts for the home that will not only spark joy this holiday season, but beyond.
For that more-is-more person in your life, these maximalist gifts for the home are special enough to catch any eye. Think colorful cookware like this taffy-colored dutch oven from Great Jones and Polspotten’s porcelain tea set to an accent chair from House of Hackney. There are more decorative objects like a Jonathan Adler marbled bow to printed salt and pepper grinders from Dusen Dusen. Whatever gift you choose, even your most maximalist recipient will be impressed.
