Practical and Thoughtful Gift Ideas for the Home

The absolute best thing about buying someone a gift for their home is that you don’t have to worry about the size not fitting. The toughest decision you’ll have to make is which color to get. This post includes a few thoughtful gift ideas that are both nice to look at and practical for any home.

A Cozy Monogrammed Blanket


The great thing about this kind of gift is that it is both personalized and cozy. Two things everyone loves. The brand Ketzal Blankets are made in Peru of baby alpaca which is as soft as cashmere yet doesn’t ball. These blankets come in a variety of sizes and colors. They are perfect for wrapping yourself up on the couch or going outside. There are even a few styles that are reversible as seen on the blue and orange blanket above. Here are a few other blankets in different price points and styles:

Cocktail Tools & Glasses

For those cocktail aficionados, cocktail making sets are always a good route to go. My personal favorite is from West Elm. You can put together an entire gift set that includes items like alcohol, mixers, shakers, strainers, glasses, and tools.

A Bottle Of Wine or Liquor

Add an extra touch with a ribbon on the bottle or package the bottle in a nice gift bag. A membership to a wine club is also a nice gift that keeps on giving all year long and lets the receiver choose their favorite wine varieties. Companies like Winc Wines offer this subscription service.

Bar Carts

Another practical and attractive gift to give someone. The great thing about a bar cart is that it can function as a side table if they are not using it to display their drink collection. It’s also perfect for anyone whether they host or would just like to enjoy it themselves. All other items in can be found in this fall decor post here.
