Not sure what to get everyone on your list this year? You likely aren’t alone. After such a defining period, where most of us have ended up spending more time than ever at home, what could be more appreciated and useful right now than gifts for our living spaces? Whether you need to buy something meaningful to give family you’re unable to visit this year, a unique piece of art, something luxurious to a new home-owner, or design-forward items for the home-chef, here are the best home and decor gifts to give and receive in 2020.
Rifle Paper Co Wireless Charger
Everyone on your list needs to charge their smartphone, so why not do it in style? The Rifle Paper Co Wireless Charger looks chic on a nightstand, desk, or side table. It can easily be mistaken for a ring dish rather than a functional piece of technology. Available in two of the brand’s beautiful print designs, Wildflowers and Garden Party Blue—this device is compatible with most smartphones and Airpods.
Dose Of Roses Burgundy Rose Bear
This adorably charming bear from Dose of Roses isn’t for cuddling. Fourteen inches high, it looks beautiful on a shelf, bookcase, or even as a table centerpiece. Made from eternity roses, it lasts a lifetime, which is far better than a typical bouquet. Not into burgundy? Bears are also available in classic red, blue, and pink colors.
Paynes Gray Terrazzo Wine Cooler
For someone who appreciates wine and decor equally, it’s impossible to go wrong with the Terrazzo Wine Cooler from Paynes Gray. This useful accessory is very much on-trend right now and a great accent for a bar cart or simply to decorate the table during meals and celebrations. Not into wine? Terrazzo trays and platters as well as a picture frame are also for sale.
MOMA Store Color Accent Red Wine Glasses Set
If you’re giving someone a bottle of wine for the holidays, why not level up your generosity and include a set of MOMA Store Color Accent Red Wine Glasses? Designed by Matteo Monni, these glasses are handmade from borosilicate glass with colored accents that won’t fade over time. Choose from two color schemes: Green/Yellow and Blue/Red.
Adorn Decor Jemma Charcuterie Board
What good is a glass of wine without a charcuterie board? With a simple but beautiful aesthetic, the Jemma Charcuterie Board is handcrafted from olive wood. It can be used for serving as well as for decorative purposes, leaning against a kitchen backsplash as a an accent piece. It’s an easy choice for a new homeowner or home chef who is likely to make use of this gift for years to come.
The Brooklyn Teacup Serving Stands
If you’ve ever inherited a set of China, don’t plan on using it, and don’t know what to do, send it to The Brooklyn Teacup by December 15th for Christmas delivery. They can upcycle old dishes into tiered serving pieces and ring holders. Then send each member of your family something special.
Or if you know someone who appreciates China or antiques, the brand already has a variety of pre-made items created from classic and rare patterns.
Elizabeth Sutton Fine Art Prints
Artist Elizabeth Sutton launched a collection of fine art prints just in time for the holidays. Her whimsical style and vibrant use of color is a welcome addition to any room in the home. Several sizes, designs, and framing options are available. Any budding or experienced collector will appreciate the quality and style of this talented artist’s highly coveted work.
Betsy Enzensburger x ArtSugar Popsicle Sculptures
If you’re looking to give someone a one of a kind piece of art this holiday, look no further than Betsy Enzensburger’s Popsicle Sculptures for ArtSugar. Made of ink, resin, and wood, each piece is unique with a colorful pop and garnishes housed in a stemless wineglass. Whether you prefer something bright pink to display all year long or perhaps a more classic holiday design, the difficult part is choosing which one.
Swirl Boutique Aura Cozy Candle
It’s impossible to go wrong with a candle. Everyone appreciates them and they’re also worth stocking up on as an ideal last-minute gift for the person you (almost) forgot. The Aura Cozy Candle from Swirl Boutique is the perfect addition to any home. With a gourmand scent featuring notes of gingerbread, cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom, the warm vessel even has a bamboo top, which can be used to cover the candle or re-purpose as a coaster. With a 40-hour burn time, home can smell like the holidays all season long.
Tuxton Fry Pan Skillets
We’re all cooking a lot more at home this year, so why not give the gift of better meals with a set of frying pan skillets from Tuxton? This non-stick cookware is coated in ceramic and chemical-free to support a healthy lifestyle. Better yet, it’s truly design-forward with several colors available including Cobalt Blue, Blush Pink, Cayenne Red, Saffron Yellow, and Cilantro Green in addition to the classic black.
These pans add a decorative element to everyday cooking and particularly appeal to someone who stores their pans out on hooks in the kitchen or likes to post on Instagram. And unlike most nonstick cookware, this set is dishwasher safe.
Dyson Lightcycle Morph
Dyson is one of those brands that takes innovation to a new level through design. The modern Lightcycle Morph is no exception. It is an essential lamp for anyone working from home, particularly in a room that doesn’t have an abundance of natural light exposure.
This smart device connects through an app and tracks the local time and temperature to adjust brightness accordingly. It also has sensors that adjust when you leave the room, saving energy. With a variety of modes for different tasks, this also raises the bar for what smart lighting can be.
August & Leo 100% Silk 3-Piece Gift Set
Looking for a thoughtful gift that will be appreciated equally by people you’re close to like a best friend just as much someone you don’t know as well? Designed by Giuliana Rancic and interior designer Lonni Paul, this gift set from August & Leo is exactly what you’re looking for. Packaged perfectly for gifting, it features a silk pillowcase (which is a game-changer for skin and hair) with a matching scrunchie and sleep mask. It’s made in a variety of colors including White, Wine, Blue, and Mulberry.
Riley Baratta Percale Bundle
It’s impossible to find a more useful gift than luxury bedding. The Baratta Percale Bundle from Riley has a minimalist, yet interesting design that compliments any style room from traditional to contemporary and even modern. Made from premium long-staple cotton percale, each set has a duvet cover, two shams, two pillowcases a fitted sheet, and a flat sheet. Choose from True Navy, Slate, and White.
Anaya Home Pink Tie Dye Throw Blanket
Tie-dye couldn’t have been more popular this year for fashion and now the look is transitioning to home design. Made of 100 percent cotton, this boho-style throw adds a perfect pop of color to a sofa or bed with minimal effort. Who can’t use an extra throw blanket?
Fluff Co Pillows
If you can’t go to a hotel this holiday season, Fluff Co Pillows are the next best thing. They’re made in the same factory as the pillows you’ll find at 5 Star hotels but cost approximately half the price. Not only are they incredibly comfortable, they automatically make your bed looks more luxurious. Choose from firm or soft pillows in feather down as well as vegan down alternative
Herman Miller Aeron Chair
Having a more comfortable chair in your home office can instantly boost productivity.

Several features are customizable including size, arm pad, tilt, back support, and color. With a 12-year warranty, this gift will be appreciated for years to come.
Mackenzie Childs Courtly Check Enamel Pet Dish
Don’t forget the furriest members of the family. The Mackenzie Childs Courtly Check Enamel Pet Dish features the brand’s signature check design. It’s a thoughtful gift to give someone with a more traditional to contemporary style aesthetic. Made of ceramic, but far more durable than the average pet dish, it has a heavy gauge steel underbody which helps it withstand the appetites of even the hungriest creatures.
Crate And Barrel 12 Days Of Christmas Appetizer Plates With Stand
Start a new tradition with these cheerful appetizer plates from Crate and Barrel. Equally chic and decorative, it’s the ideal gift or receive in 2020 because it prevents everyone from eating off the same platter or accidentally taking from another person’s dish. The stand is a convenient bonus.
Knackshops Salad Gift Set
Knack is an excellent source for gift boxes across a variety of categories from the kitchen to spa and entertaining with go-to options that will make everyone on your list smile.
The Salad Course is no exception. It has a large lemon print salad bowl as well two smaller ones, a matching tea towel, and bottles of oil and vinegar. It’s a thoughtful present to send that person you wish you could see right now. But still, they’ll think of you every time they use these bowls.
Most appliances don’t exactly win points for design, but not Spark Grills. Innovative in every way, this charcoal and wood grill has the precision control of a gas grill for the best flavor possible. Better yet, they have a design-forward aesthetic with a variety of colors available including aqua, cream, and navy as well as black.
