With the holiday season in full swing, there’s no better time than now to pick up a few new home and entertaining accessories, whether they’re for you or a friend! From glassware and decor to kitchen gadgets and vacuums, I’ve pulled some of my favorite home and entertaining purchases from over the years, plus a few items on my wishlist, to make holiday shopping for yourself, the host, a new homeowner, and aspiring chef, a little easier this year.
The Best Gifts for the Home & Entertaining
Non-Stick Pan Set – Have you ever seen a prettier pan set? (Answer: no) I love that this one is affordable and comes with all of the pans you could ever need.
Cordless Vacuum – One of my holy grail home items! No one can say no to a Dyson cordless vacuum and this one is great for new homeowners.
Stand Mixer – I’m pretty sure a stand mixer is on the list of “wants” for every gal (and even some guys!) and this one is gorgeous!
Tic-Tac-Toe Game Set – A fun gift that doubles as entertainment and decor, this tic-tac-toe game set is a great gift to buy the home decor obsessed.
Metal Tapper Candle Holder – H&M Home has so many great decor pieces that also make great gifts, like these tapper candle holders! Such a great hostess gift this holiday season.
Agate Frame – Who can say no to a gorgeous frame? This one is so pretty and will go with any decor. Bonus points if you pop in your favorite picture of you and the recipient.
White Wine Glasses – One of my favorite gifts to give is wine glasses and a bottle of my favorite wine. It’s easy, people love it, and let’s face it – you can never have enough wine glasses. Love the shape of these ones!
Electric Wine Opener – Open wine with ease with this electric wine opener! This is such a great gift to bring the host of your upcoming holiday party. I promise, they’ll love it!
Cake Stand – Cake stands are one of those items that people often overlook but are used much more than you would think. Love how delicate this one is!
Coupe Cocktail Glasses – Want to gift some sort of glassware but don’t know what to gift? Opt for coupe cocktail glasses! Fewer people than you would think actually own coupe cocktail glasses so they make a great, easy, no-brainer gift!
Brass Candle Wick Trimmer – This is one of my favorite home purchases to date! Such an easy way to trim the wick of your candles without making a mess of the wax, and makes a great gift. Pair with your favorite candle and wa-la!
Faceted Radiant Glasses – Love these stemless glasses so much! The perfect edition to any bar cart or open shelving.
Faceted Glass Carafe – Another great gift for the host this holiday season! This faceted glass carafe is perfect to pair with the above-mentioned glasses and will look great on any bar cart or dining table.
Brass Letter Opener – Finding a letter opener that isn’t ugly is easier said than done but CB2 has come through! A great gift to pair with a notecard set for the people in your life that love snail mail.
Cast Iron Essentials Oven – The ultimate gift for the cooking (and baking) lover in your life! This cast iron essential oven will make the chef in your life’s jaw drop. Plus it’s on major sale!
