Tis the season to be jolly, but sometimes, holiday shopping can make us anything but. That’s why we’re compiling easy to follow gift guides for every person in your life, starting with the homebody. You all have a few in your life – the introvert who would rather meet up after you go to the bar, in a less public setting, and preferably away from people. Because introverts can spend so much time at home, how their home is decorated can have a serious effect on their mood and happiness. In partnership with The Citizenry, we curated the products your homebody is sure to love.
Palo Santo is burned to ward off negative energy and to promote all around positivity, particularly in the home. Chances are someone you know already burns Palo Santo, so elevate their ritual with this set. The tray acts as a great storage option for unburned wood, and the cylinder holder props up your Palo Santo to let it burn out effectively. As a bonus, every purchase includes a bundle of sustainably harvested Palo Santo, so you’re all ready to go.
There’s nothing a homebody craves more than curling up in cold weather with a book or to watch a movie with a warm drink in hand. Round out this combo perfectly by adding a luxuriously soft alpaca throw to the mix – alpaca throws are more sustainably harvested than cashmere and they’re just as, if not more, warm. They come in a variety of color ways, so there’s an option for everyone on your list. Bonus points: alpaca is hypoallergenic, and is therefore ideal for those with sensitive skin or allergies.
In a small, cramped space, mirror usage is key to making the space look even larger than it is. This set will not only add depth to your space, but the unique shape is sure to make its way into a number of Instagram mirror selfies.
People who love to spend time in their home, more often than not, have a lot of plant friends to liven up the space. That’s why these modern planters are the perfect option for your stay at home friend. If your friend has a passion for sustainability and ethical treatment, even better – these are made exclusively in a fair trade environment and the company replants trees to replenish any that were used in the making of the product.
For anyone who cherishes their morning ritual of coffee, matcha, tea, or even adaptogenic lattes, this is a great gift. This aesthetically pleasing set of four mugs with the cutest pourer for milk is the secret to creating Insta-worthy morning beverages (you know, that Instagram trend we’re seeing everywhere!). These will look great on Christmas morning and make the perfect company for the cold, winter days to come.
Storage is a necessity in your place of living, and this rings especially true in New York City. Instead of opting for plastic bins and drawers, try out something like this instead. Made of insanely durable palmyra leaves, these baskets (hand woven by the women of Solor Island, Indonesia) make storing all odds and ends aesthetically pleasing. Whether your friend complains about lacking book storage, cooking storage, or even something to put their large houseplant in, this is the perfect solution.
