Anecdotally, we know of quite a few people who moved in the past couple of years — you may too. Intuitively, it makes sense. Many of us were cooped up in our homes. Suppose you were dissatisfied with your surroundings and had the means to; moving could mean more than just a change of scenery, but a genuine opportunity to reset. With that, of course, comes the need to freshen up your decor and pick up a few things for the home.

Regardless of whether you just bought a house or signed the lease on your first studio after college, there are probably quite a few things you need to make your new place feel like a home. And besides decor, there are probably some functional items that might not have made the list.

The best opportunity to give gifts for the home is obviously a housewarming party. But that’s not the only time to get great gifts for the home. The holidays can also be a great time to give decor, smart home and other living essentials as the best Christmas gifts. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of the best home decor gifts to buy.

  

1. Pendleton Yakima Camp Blanket

FOR THE S.O. WHO’S ALWAYS COLD

A good blanket is always in order. It’s hard to go wrong with a Pendleton blanket, which brings a rugged yet sophisticated touch to any indoor space. Sure, they’re pricey, but the wool and cotton construction makes for a blanket that they’ll have for a long time.

  

2. Yamazaki Home Leaning Ladder Rack

FOR THE MINIMALIST

Yamazaki’s leaning ladder rack is a more exciting and space-saving alternative to the standard coat rack. Add some hooks, and you can throw jackets or bags on them or use it as storage for throw blankets. The simple design means that the applications are endless.

6. Flickr Personal Concrete Fireplace

FOR THE S.O. WHO’S ALWAYS REALLY COLD

How this wasn’t a thing before is beyond us, but Flickr has become a popular brand for its personal fireplaces. They burn isopropyl alcohol for a soot-free burn, so you can safely use it indoors or outdoors (just follow basic fire safety).

7. Graf Lantz Bierfilzl Square Coaster Felt Multi 4 Pack

FOR THE PERSON WHO RESPECTS WOOD 

Coasters are to home decor as socks are to clothes; they might not seem like the most exciting gifts, but the right ones can make a big difference. Graf Lantz’s colorful coasters are made from naturally absorbent felt wool, which wicks away moisture from your glassware to protect your wood table because you have to respect wood.

8. First Alert HOME1 Home Fire Extinguisher

FOR THE HOME COOK WHO’S STILL GETTING THE HANG OF IT

Yes, a fire extinguisher. Everyone should have one in their home, but not everyone does. (Are they ever on your shopping list?) It might not meet the standard gifting definition of “thoughtful,” but it’s definitely thoughtful in a practical way.

10. Google Chromecast with Google TV

FOR THE BINGE-WATCHER WITH EVERY STREAMING SERVICE

Google TV has a clean interface that groups your shows by what you’re currently watching rather than by app. That makes it easier to jump back into your favorite movies and shows. And of course, you can always cast from your phone. It’s an excellent upgrade for at-home tech.

16. Ruggable Hello Doormat

BEST FOR THE NEW HOMEOWNER
