Gift Ideas For Homebodies

Are you shopping for a homebody this year? This gift guide includes some of my favorite things that would make great gifts for any home lover!

It’s officially gifting season! Today kicks off a week of gift guides here on the blog. I always enjoy seeing what other bloggers include in their gift guides and I hope that mine will give you some gifting inspiration, too.

One thing that I’m doing differently this year (and different from most bloggers) is only including items in my gift guides that I personally own and love. A lot of bloggers curate great online finds, but I really want to share our family’s personal favorites, those tried and true products that I know you’ll love, too. So everything you see in my 2020 gift guides has a big thumbs up from me!

We’re kicking things off this year with one of my favorite categories: Gifts for the Homebody! I’m a major homebody myself and promise you that any home lover or decor-obsessed person on your shopping list will love these items.

Note: I typically link to national retailers that are easily accessible to all but don’t forget to check your favorite small businesses for these items as well. Small businesses can use your support this year more than ever!

  1. Gold Picture Frame Everyone could use another picture frame, and this beautiful brass frame works with any style.
  2. The Home Edit Life Most homebodies have binged The Home Edit show by now so what’s better than gifting them a pretty book with more organizing eye candy?
  3. Emily Jeffords Print You can’t go wrong with an Emily Jeffords print, every single one is stunning! I have this one in our entryway.
  4. Letter Board Letter boards are a homebody’s BFF.
  5. Vase This vase works in every room of the house – on a console table in the entry, on the fireplace mantle, on a kitchen island, on a dresser…
  6. Plant Meter House plants are suddenly trendy but that doesn’t mean we all suddenly got green thumbs! This plant meter is a lifesaver for keeping my plants alive.
  7. Robot Vacuum You can’t beat clean floors! We’ve used this vacuum all year and I have zero complaints, it handles both carpet and hard floors (and the transitions between them) like a champ. Best purchase I made during quarantine, hands down.
  8. Potted Snake Plant House plants are the “it” decoration these days. Did you know you can order plants on Amazon? A plant in a pretty pot would be a wonderful gift.
  9. Candle Accessory Kit This fancy candle accessory set is such a good gift idea! Few people would buy something like this themselves which makes it all the more special to receive. Wrap it up with a candle!
  10. Candle Every homebody needs more candles. Enough said ;).
  11. Studio McGee Book Gift a good read like this inspiring book written by interior designer Shea McGee.
  12. Magnolia Journal Cozy afternoons on the couch flipping through magazines are a homebody’s dream! The Magnolia Journal is by far my favorite magazine that exists.
