These home decor Christmas gifts make for the best gift for the homebody in your life. As an art & design lover myself, and definitely someone who considers themself a homebody, I handpicked these 21 gifts with the same care I would when choosing a gift for one of my loved ones. Every step of the gift giving process is so fun and special, and I hope that these gift ideas help spark inspiration for you.
Candles, blankets, picture frames, throw pillows and more, this gift guide is full of items that will make any homebody’s heart swoon. Pick out what your favorite item is and maybe you can even sneak in a little gift to yourself 😉
You know that feeling when someone gets you a gift that you never would have bought for yourself, but it’s exactly what you didn’t know you wanted? That’s what this list of gift ideas is all about.
This post is all about home decor Christmas gifts.
1. Luxe faux fur throw blanket
It only seemed right to start off this gift guide with something soft and cozy. This fuzzy throw blanket gets so many great reviews. And who doesn’t love to get a new blanket? It’s definitely a more luxurious blanket, but I think it’s perfect if you’re looking to spend a little bit more on a gift for a loved one.
This Urban Outfitters blanket has great reviews at a more affordable price, but it doesn’t have the same look as this one.
2. Scented candle in a beautiful tin
Candles are such a fun gift to receive because it’s pretty hard to have too many (although I’m sure many of us love to toe that line hahaha). The Mokara scent gets positive reviews, so that could be a safe choice if you’re not sure about what scent to get.
3. Parachute duvet cover and shams
These linen duvet covers look absolutely heavenly. If you’re looking for a bigger gift for someone, this is something that will help anyone refresh their bedroom, which I think we all need and deserve every once in a while. I have heard so many great things about Parachute and their sheets and bedding – these luxurious duvet covers will make whoever you gift them to feel so special.
This set has over 1,000 reviews and it’s almost 5 stars. So if that doesn’t make you want to buy a set for a loved one and yourself, I don’t know what will.
4. Dessert Person cook book and coffee table book
We all know someone who considers themself a dessert person – in fact, probably multiple people who do! This cook book is perfect for someone who loves to flip through a book full of beautiful pictures of food and experiment with a baking project.
Since it has a beautiful cover, it also is a beautiful book to display on a coffee table. Any beautifully designed cook book can make for a really fun gift, and who knows? Maybe you’ll even get lucky and you’ll get to share one of these amazing desserts with the person you gift this to.
5. Fun and colorful throw pillow
These throw pillows are so bright and colorful, and so much fun! If you have someone in your life who you know loves bringing color into their home, one of these pillows will bring them joy and comfort.
6. Juniper ceramic tray
This tray makes for a super affordable gift – it’s only $14, and it’s a really cute and usable item to have. I always keep little catch all dishes like this on my nightstand, dresser, and bathroom counter to help me keep things organized.
If you’re looking for great home decor gifts for friends, this little tray is something that doesn’t take up a lot of space, is easy to integrate into a space, and looks more expensive than it is. So is that a win win win? Did I forget one win? Long story short, that seems like a win! Haha.
7. Charcuterie board
This is a functional cutting board that is also beautiful enough to use as a charcuterie board to display appetizers on. It is a great gift because of how useful it is, and it is simple and pretty.
8. Pretty picture frame
When in doubt, picture frame it out. The cool thing about giving a picture frame as a gift is that you are inviting someone to create a memory and a keepsake that they have in their home. This picture frame also comes in three different colors – I just happened to love the dark green.
It’s a kind and thoughtful gift idea. Whether you choose to put a photo in the picture frame or leave it empty for them to choose, this gesture is warm and will make someone feel loved this holiday season.

9. Half Baked Harvest Super Simple cook book
A cook book by one of the most beloved food blogs on the internet, Half Baked Harvest Super Simple is a great gift for anyone who cooks their own meals. And I mean anyone! Her recipes are so easy and delicious.
Whether this is a gift to someone moving into their first apartment or to someone who just needs a little bit of dinner inspiration after years of cooking, this cook book is sure to be a delight.
10. Birdies elegant slip on shoes
Anyone who loves hosting needs these shoes. Birdies makes shoes that are meant to be comfortably beautiful whether you’re indoors or outdoors. Whenever you have people over, these will be your go to shoes. I mean, they might even just be your new favorite shoes for any fancy casual event.
Did I just make up the term fancy casual? I don’t know if that’s a thing or not, but you know exactly what I mean. When you don’t want to be too dressy, but also sneakers or slippers are not appropriate, these are the shoes to wear. And they’re so cute! They come in so many different colors and patterns, too.
11. Capri blue candle
This is one of the most highly rated and loved candles out there (it has over 7,000 reviews on Amazon – like what?!). It easily fills a room with its luxurious smell and it makes for a great gift.
People who love this candle really love this candle. So this is one of those gifts where you don’t even need to worry if someone has it already or not, because they will be just as excited to get another one if they do.
12. Cute and trendy taper candles
Scented candles aren’t for everyone, and even though I love them, I get it because I have a super sensitive nose. These taper candles are so cute and trendy, and they’re perfect if you’re gifting to someone who loves to create a gorgeous ambience in their home.
And if you know someone who isn’t a fan of scented candles but would get inspiration from these to create a pretty tablescape for a dinner party, these make for such a fun gift.
13. Cozy throw blanket
This blanket gets so many great reviews and it’s pretty and simple, so if you know someone who likes to get cozy without a fuss, this is for them.
If you’re not sure what to get someone for Christmas this year, this is one of those home decor Christmas gifts that is sure to please any recipient.
14. Classic Turkish Cotton Robe
This robe looks so luxurious and soft. Looking at this is one of those moments where you start to want to buy everything for yourself. I love the different earthy, neutral tones that this bathrobe comes in. It looks like exactly what I would want to cozy up in after a shower.
Here is a more affordable robe from Amazon if you love this idea but need a more budget friendly option. A bathrobe is an especially nice gift because it’s not something that everyone buys for themselves, but it is something that anyone can enjoy.
15. Gooseneck electric kettle
This electric kettle is sleek and has a similar look to a very popular electric kettle that’s also very expensive. This one is so much more affordable. And it has over 5,000 reviews of people saying how awesome it is. There’s something so uniquely satisfying about a deal like that.
It also is really aesthetically pleasing and cute! If you know a tea lover, this might be the missing electric kettle that they need.
16. Fun and fancy set of cheese knives
This guide of home decor Christmas gifts would not be complete without a set of cheese knives. A charcuterie board and some fancy cheese knives might just be the way into any homebody’s heart.
Here is a less expensive alternative if you love the idea of giving cheese knives, but are looking for a more affordable price. They’re also really pretty.
17. Marshall bluetooth speaker
This speaker is a great gift idea for someone who loves music and would love a beautiful speaker with a vintage look. A lot of the time, speakers take away from a room because they just don’t look that nice. This Marshall speaker is really cute and has an old school vintage charm, but has bluetooth and great sound quality.
If you an easy-to-use and aesthetic friendly speaker is what you need, this is the speaker for you. Oh wait – this is supposed to be a gift. See? Everything looks so good that it’s hard not to want it yourself. This really would make a great gift for someone in need of a new speaker, though.
18. Patterned decorative tray
There is something so fun and pleasing about a patterned decorative tray, and these three different designs are eye catching, colorful, and joyful. I definitely want one of these (or all of them???).
If you’re shopping for someone who has a deep appreciation for color and pattern, this is such a winning gift for them. It’s so fun to show people that you love their personal style, and they will feel like you really get them.
19. Checkerboard bolster pillow
Checkers are super trendy right now, and why not join the fun? This is a gift that will really please a younger audience or anyone who loves that classic check pattern. The rounded bolster pillow shape has a really unique contrast against the checkerboard pattern that I haven’t seen before.
This pillow is a great gift idea for that young and hip person who always knows what’s cool. Also a pro: they’ll think you’re pretty cool too when you get them this.
20. Beautiful loaf pan
Couldn’t you just start drooling as you dream up all of the banana bread that you could make in this beautiful loaf pan? Any baker is sure to appreciate this unique loaf pan with tons of charm.
It’s so fun how this pan gives the loaf a baked-in pattern, and it’s a pretty pale blue that anyone could love. This pan is a great way to give something that’s useful but that also feels special.
21. Quirky and cute vase
It seemed only right to end this gift guide with a vase, because vases are such a pleasing gift to give and to receive. Whether you like the tall black one or the shorter blue one, I think that these vases combine quirky, cute, and simple in a beautiful way. Their handles add lots of charm, but their simple color makes them easy to love.
When you’re giving gifts to people you love, it feels so good when you know you got them something special that they will treasure. It’s so much fun to share these home decor Christmas gifts with you with the hope that they may help you spark some of those special, joyful moments.
