Today’s gift guide focuses on all things home! Kim has compiled a list of beautiful and practical items that will thrill your favorite homebody, and I’ve put together a list of handy tools and accessories for the DIY-er in your life. We’ve taken care to feature gifts for every price point and have tried and tested many of these items ourselves! We hope you find some inspiration for the people in your life that share our feeling that home is the most important place of all.
2| This portable cordless(!) spot cleaner ($85), because dogs and kids. Bonus: Bissell will donate up to $10 towards homeless pets upon product registration!
3| These stacking bowls in gloss gray (starting at $12) for their famous homemade guac and chips (and pico and aioli and, and!).
4| An embossing label maker ($10) with a stack of black tape so they can further organize their already fabulously organized home.
5| A handsome navy laptop case ($129), because sometimes they do leave the house.
6| An indoor potted plant ($48), delivered straight to their front door! Not that they need more plants, but it sure makes them happy.
7| This smart home starter kit ($99) that will allow them to set a scene – with the touch of a button! – for any mood they’re in. Which, you know, is generally Netflix-and-chill.
8| This adorable tissue box cover ($5) that doesn’t call attention to itself, because why are tissue boxes so ugly?
9| A pair of blush salt and pepper grinders ($78) that’ll look so sweet in their freshly renovated kitchen.
10| Hands down, the very best leggings ($68) made from recycled materials for maximum lounging, playing with the kids and, oh yeah, the occasional workout.
11| A statement blanket ($108) that shows off their favorite activity.
12| A cute – but not cutesy! – custom family portrait (starts at $16) that showcases the real heart of the home.
For the DIY-er
1| Tape measures certainly have their place, but this laser level ($30) is a life saver that will help them measure distances longer that a standard tape measure can handle.
2| A three pack of Big. Thick. Wool. Socks. ($50) will keep their feet toasty in the garage no matter how low the temperature dips.
3| This heavy duty hand cream ($7) will make their dry, cracked working hands smooth and supple in no time.
4| Who needs a toolbox when they’ve got a bucket organizer ($20) to keep their tools organized and accessible?
5| These gloves ($14) were an absolute life-saver when we were in the demolition phase of our Chicago home’s renovation. They’ll love the durable protection and flexible dexterity!
6| This compressor/nailer/stapler kit ($225) is versatile and hard-working! The fastening options and compact size make it a champ.
7| This 5 tool combo kit ($450) is the perfect way to kickstart their new tool collection.
8| A sharp knife is a safe knife! This highly rated portable knife sharpener ($9) fits easily in a pocket or backpack and will ensure that their blades are always in top shape.
9| Kim’s favorite work boots ($140) are built to take a beating. They’ll love the lightweight alloy safety toe and waterproof construction. Plus, they just look cool.
10| This wall-mounted shop vacuum ($150) stays out of the way but includes enough hose to reach any corner of their garage or workshop.
11| A retractible extension cord reel ($45) keeps their cords within easy reach and up off of the floor. No more tripping over filthy orange cords – a garage lifesaver and absolute must have, for sure.
12| They’ll love the versatility of this powerful rechargeable headlamp ($33). I use mine to gather kindling and keep an eye on the dogs on dark nights at Tree House!
