Gift Ideas for the Home Designer
Happy November! Today, I’m sharing my favorite gift ideas for the home design & decor junkie in your life. You know the one. Her home is stylish and organized. She has a specific ~aesthetic~ (modern farmhouse, anyone?) And you can usually find her on her well-styled couch – glued to HGTV, of course. She’s famously hard to shop for, but don’t worry – I got you covered. Keep reading to shop the gift guide!

Gift this beautiful guide on home design from the queen of HGTV herself.
This long-anticipated book from the cute af but somehow also completely put-together Joanna Gaines is an essential for the home design junkie. Jo will walk your bestie through everything she needs to know in order to embrace her home design aesthetic and design a space she loves to come home to.
Or this candle that doubles as decor.

This letter board that doubles as home decor and a prop for her Instagram pics.
Whether your friend prefers inspirational quotes or dirty jokes, this letter board is the perfect canvas for her thoughts. Not to mention, the oak frame will look killer in her bedroom and on her Instagram feed.
This stylish must-have guide to home organization.
This book has been a life-saver since I moved into my current apartment a few months ago. I had been struggling to find practical tips to organize my stuff in a useful way (i.e. not just shoving everything into my closet and hoping for the best). Remodelista nails it, walking you through creative ideas to help you organize your home. Definitely gift a copy, but also buy one for yourself.
This hauntingly beautiful light with serious vintage vibes.
The right lamp or light fixture can transform a space like nothing else can. Seriously, picture this lamp on a sexy dark wood desk with a stack of classic novels, a hot mug of tea, and some dried flowers. Gorgeous. Or on a bedside table sitting pretty with a glass bottle of apple-scented lotion and a tray of decorative crystals. Love it. And your friend will, too.
This splurge for someone whose idea of porn is sexy cookware.
If you’re looking for something impressive and ~adult~ to get your friend who practically lives in the kitchen, this display-worthy cookware set is it. These bad boys will add a stunning pop of copper to her kitchen, whether she’s boiling water or whipping up a five-course meal.
These eco-friendly straws that will look great in a home-mixed drink.
Straws are awesome – they save your enamel and look cute in a glass. But single-use plastic? Less awesome. Help your beverage-loving bff save her teeth and the environment with these super cute rose gold straws she can use over and over again.
These nostalgic candles designed to smell like home.
Give your friend the gift of nostalgia with these US-made candles designed to smell just like home, whether home is Oregon or Oklahoma. Each state’s candle is a unique blend of scents. Washington – my home state – smells like rain, steeped Earl Grey tea, cedar, and patchouli.
This guide to styling with plants (and keeping them alive, too).
Whether she’s a green-thumbed plant lady or an accidental plant killer, she deserves some more greenery in her life. Gift your friend this book to help her master the art of cultivating her own well-styled indoor jungle.
These serving bowls for your favorite hostess from Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings line.
This gorgeous set of stoneware bowls nestled in a gold-accented tray is perfect for the hostess in your life – whether she’s serving fancy hors devours or chips and dip. (Don’t forget to gift Chrissy’s latest cookbook, too, for some food-spiration from the funniest cookbook author out there.)
And finally, this cozy excuse to stay in on Friday night (or every night).
Sure, it’s cold outside, but your bestie will stay warm bundled up in this all winter. Plus, we all know a chunky knit pulls a room together better than some worn-out fleece blanket that hasn’t seen the light of day since last December.
