* Smart home tech, decor, knick-knacks, and more

With so many incredible home gadgets and chic, low-priced decor, buying a home gift is more overwhelming now (and more rewarding) than ever before. Great decor has always been a solid gifting option because everyone can use it, and new smart home gadgets have upped the game even more. We rounded up ten of our favorite home gifts from tasteful knick-knacks to cutting-edge home tech that anyone would be thrilled to unwrap.

1. MISOSA Record Coasters

Stylish coasters always make a solid gift. We like these mini vinyl record coasters because they’re chic, but also fun and interesting. At just $8 they make a great last-minute present or white elephant gift.

This Phantoscope fur pillow case adds a colorful, cozy touch to any sofa, bed, or lounge chair. Like most great home gifts, it’s a statement piece that works in any house or apartment.

3. Smell My Nuts Scented Candle

Smell My Nuts is a comical invitation to smell the banana nut bread, toasted coconut and hazelnut scent of this candle – not the other thing. It’s a scented candle in a rustic mason jar with added humor that makes it a standout gift.

4. Mineralamp Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp

Himalayan salt lamps work double duty as fun decor and holistic healers. We recommend this one from Mineralamp because it’s highly reviewed and doesn’t come with a steep price tag.
