The perfect gift is something they love AND can use. I’ve curated some of my very favorite home essentials from Home Depot that are a gorgeous add to any space and have that perfect blend of aesthetics and functionality.

I’ve pulled together items that look cohesive together, so you can pick just the perfect one OR choose multiple from the list to create a perfectly paired gift set.

01. arched gold accent mirror

Gold mirrors and arches are both having a moment, and this gorgeous arched accent mirror from the Home Decorators collection at Home Depot is the perfect way to rock the trend.

I love the frame detail on this piece and the size makes it so versatile — its easy to style on a mantle, entryway credenza, or even hang on the wall in a bathroom above the vanity.

02. marble cheese board + cheese knives

Charcuterie might just be the perfect hosting snack. Whether you curate artisanal cheeses or just plate a pre-packaged tray to make it feel pulled together, you can take your cheese tray game to the next level with this beautiful marble cheese board + knife set.

I love the texture mix of gold + marble with this set! It has the perfect balance of beauty and function — it looks gorgeous on a countertop and has all the utensils you’ll need to serve up some charcuterie for guests. For a pro styling tip, layer it on top of a wood cutting board (pick #11) to add some warm tones and added texture.

03. modo white wine glasses

This pick is perfect for the wine lover on your list! This wine glass profile is definitely trending right now and this set of 4 Modo White Wine Glasses is a perfect option to freshen up a tired glassware cabinet.

I love the modern look of these glasses — the flat bottom gives them a sleek profile that’s super unique and adds an elevated edge to any table.

04. textured throw blanket with fringe

If there’s a magic combination for easy-add decor pieces that instantly spruce up a space, it’s anything cozy that has great texture. You can almost never go wrong with a throw blanket, especially one that’s stylish and soft enough to cozy up with like this Off-white Throw Blanket with Fringe.

I love the fringed texture on this blanket! The style says boho farmhouse but its seriously versatile enough to blend seamlessly into any design style from adding texture to a sleek modern space to fitting perfectly into a more rustic looking space.

05. gold metal mirror tray

Trays are one of those versatile decor pieces that you can use just about anywhere. Function-wise this gold metal mirror tray is a “safe” gift pick if you’re unsure what to get because almost any home has a perfect place for a new tray, but the gold + mirror design feels anything but safe. Its bold + polished and a great size to use as a focal point for a vignette.

I love styling with trays because adding smaller items to a tray is an easy way to visually group them together — reducing clutter and giving the space a cleaner, more styled look.

This tray is perfect for a coffee table, centerpiece decor, or the bar. The mirror on the bottom helps bounce light and reflect back the texture of whatever you want to showcase on it.

06. amber old-fashioned whiskey glasses

If you know someone who loves warm tones and texture, these glasses are their perfect gift. One of the most fun parts about design is using everyday items to showcase your personality, and these Schott Zwiesel Amber Old-Fashioned Whisky Glasses are a perfect way to add a pop of color and personality to a bar cart.

I love the dual texture on these glasses and the warm yellow color! They’re elevated enough for special occasions, but I honestly think it would be fun to snag another set for daily use as water glasses. They’ll look amazing styled on open shelving in a kitchen or bar area. They also come in clear, gray and pink.

07. copper double wall water pitcher

Everyday items that make a statement make the best gifts. This Copper Double Wall Pitcher makes a stylish statement on your table or bar top and is perfect for entertaining.

I love the look of the rippled texture on this piece and the sleek modern handle. Another nice touch is the ice block on the pour spout so drinks can stay cold but not overloaded with ice.

08. antiqued gold candle holders

Candle holders are add-anywhere classics and these antiqued gold candle holders feel like a design that’s time-honored enough to become a home decor staple. Grab just a couple as accents for a mantle or shelves or snag a few to create a set.

I love the antiqued look — the soft gold color is a perfect subtle metallic accent vs a polished brass tone. These candle holders come in two sizes, grab three large ones and two small ones for an instant simple centerpiece.

09. pedestal cake plate + glass dome

All the celebrating around the holidays means finding space and serving dishes for all the snacks. One of my favorite hosting hacks is using a pedestal cake stand to serve up all kinds of different holiday treats.

It adds height to the snack area: letting other plates tuck under it to save space. My pick for this is the Clear Madera Pedestal Cake Plate because I love the wood base and the modern dome shape.

I love how versatile this piece is for entertaining — you can use it as described to save your favorite cake or swap in other snacks you want out on display but covered. Add a cheeseball for happy hour grazing or some pastries for fresh fruit for serving up brunch.

10. hammered brass wood coaster set

If you need a quick small gift to show appreciation OR something that’s small enough to slide into a stocking, my pick is this hammered brass & wood coaster set.

I love that this set already comes tied up in a string for easy gifting. The style is perfectly gender neutral — it can fit seamlessly into a moody styled bar cart or compliment a more light and airy space by adding contrasted wood tones and a pop of gold.

11. walnut wood cutting board

Sometimes everyday essentials are the way to go, and this pick is an elevated essential that’s super usable. This Rectangular Walnut Wood Cutting Board is perfect for the ones on your list who love cooking, but also works well as a decor piece since it’s super easy to layer and can be used for food display.

I love the wood tone of this piece and the fact that it’s a perfect size! Big enough to use but small enough to be stored easily. For a gift set, I recommend combining it with the marble cheese board + knife set — they look amazing stacked together.

12. faux cowhide accent rug

A rug isn’t the most expected holiday gift, but that’s what makes it perfect. This 4ft x 5ft Faux Cowhide Accent Rug makes a unique gift that can be easily styled in all kinds of spaces

I love the gold fleck accents on this rug! It’s the perfect way to tie in other metallic accents from the space and adds a ton of texture and interest. Layer the 4 ft. x 5 ft size under a bar cart to anchor the piece in the space and add interest — its also great for protecting your floors from wheel scratches.

Or grab a larger size — like the 6 ft. x 8 ft. rug — to layer on top of an existing square rug in your dining space. It helps break up the boxiness and add fun texture.

13. marble rolling pin + cradle

This pick is perfect if you have a baker on your list. Grab them a gorgeous Marble Rolling Pin with wood handles — it’s a stylish twist on an everyday baking essential.

I love that this rolling pin comes with a wood cradle that matches the handles. It’s perfect for displaying it as a decor piece on the countertop or styled on some open shelving.
