Holiday Gift  Ideas for Her: Home Edition

Austin Merrill |

There's always someone on your holiday gifting list that is just a little bit hard to shop for. Whether it's for Mom, grandma, or a sister who you can never quite gift right, when you're shopping for somebody who loves all things home decor, there are a few easy ways to knock a gift out of the park. 

We've compiled a non-exhaustive list as some of our very favorite gifts for people who love decorating their homes and changing up their space all the time. Do you know a soon-to-be-Shea-McGee or a just-about-Joanna-Gaines? These gifts are for them. 

1. Habitat: The Field Guide to Decorating by Lauren Liess

There are a lot of great home decor books that double as stunning coffee table books, but habitat has to be one of our very favorites. This book is full of beautiful pictures that are sure to inspire any creative in your life, and it looks really great on the coffee table or on floating shelves. This book is sold all over the place, but you can grab it online for under $25, which makes it a very affordable gift. If you want to personalize the book a little bit, add a nice note to the inside cover of the book and tie it up with some festive holiday ribbon.

We're a fan of everything that Anthropologie does, but this basket is top of our list right now.

8. Brass Hanging Frame

Brass frames are a delicate statement piece that easily incorporates into so many styles. We love this fun frame because it’s under $15 and a great way to give someone a fun, personal gift that doubles as home decor. Frame a picture of the two of you or add some art to the frame for a gift that’s completely unique and fun. We have this frame hanging next to our custom laundry room floating shelves and we love it.

9. Magnolia Home Wood Tray

Decorative trays and catchalls are something that everyone could use a handful of in their homes, it’s why we’ve got two trays on our gift list this year. We use trays like this on shelves, coffee tables, and even at the end of the guest bed in our home for a little touch of classic hosting. This classic Magnolia tray comes in two sizes, both under $50. 

10. Etched Glass Vases

Etched glass vases are classic, and these bud vases from Magnolia give a fresh look to a traditional style. Bud vases are great because they are really elegant, they’re fun to use, and they’re nice and small. In the spring we like to fill bud vases with sprigs from our flower garden and in the winter months, we use them to propagate house plants. Paired with a book about plants and a packet of seeds, these vases give you a complete gift set. At just $10 apiece, you can also use these vases for some fragile (but fabulous) stocking stuffers.
