My favorite type of gift to give (and receive) are home items. From luxury candles to coffee table books that are both beautiful and functional… there are so many options. So here are a few items I’ve found that would be the perfect addition to any home!


VOLUSPA CANDLE TRAVEL TINS – If you haven’t tried Voluspa candles yet, you’re missing out. They burn clean and are so fragrant. This Christmas Collection includes the scents; Blanc de Blancs, Cinnamon Ceylon and Copal, Visions of Sugar Plums and Spruce Cuttings.


JO MALONE MINIATURE CANDLE COLLECTION – I’m in love with the ‘London’ scent. Everytime I wear the perfume I get compliments. But really, all of the Jo Malone scents are beautiful. Very clean and not too powerful. Make sure to check out the perfumes and lotions as well.

CAPRI BLUE ‘GUILDED MUSE COLLECTION’ CANDLE – First of all, how beautiful is this holder? I for one love the rose gold, but you can also get it in gold or black. Plus, there are a variety of scents to choose from so you can find one that’s perfect for the person receiving the gift.


THE ESSENTIAL NEW YORK TIMES BOOK OF COCKTAILS – Is anyone else really into coffe table books? I’m kind of obsessed at the moment. The best kind is one that’s not just pretty, but also functional. The author, Steve Reddicliffe, who is also behind the “Quiet Drink” column for The New York Times, shares some amazing recipes from baretenders all over the world.

‘STYLED’ INTERIOR DESIGN BOOK BY EMILY HENDERSON – New York Times bestseller and interior designer Emily Henderson is behind this book which offers practical advice and great tips for personalizing any room.


GRAND DAME RECIPE TIN – How cute is this?! This receip tin includes 12 dividers and 24 receipe cards. I had to put it in this guide because it’s just so adorable!

PINEAPPLE MEASURING CUPS – Can you believe these are measuring cups? At first glance I thought they were just for decoration. This unique gift would be perfect for the man or woman who loves to cook. Also, the cups go into one another like a Russian nesting doll so it also saves space.

MARBLE SERVEWARE – Marble serveware is great for multiple reasons. For one, it just looks so pretty. Also, you can refridgerate them to keep the cold appetizers cold.


MICHAEL ALAM WINE STOPPER – How great would this be for the wine lover? This design is gorgeous and adds a little flare to the top of any uncorked bottle.

MONOGRAMMED STEMLESS WINE GLASSES – The perfect mix of contemporary and traditional. These stemless wine glasses have 24-karat gold rims and a single initial which gives it a personalized touch.


For more gift ideas and holiday/party outfit inspo just hover your cursor over on the new “HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDES” tab on the main menu. You’ll find everything from gifts for the gadget guru to cute stocking stuffers. I hope this helps make your holiday shopping a little easier!



Love, Lindsey



  1. Giving home items can be a little tricky unless you know the style of the person well. I like giving and receiving them too. I’m sure no one would complain about receiving Jo Malone candle set 🙂 Great guide!
