By Style Girlfriend | Last Updated: Nov 25 2020

During uncertain times, it’s good to go back to the basics. That’s why this year, we went heavy on feel-good fashion for your wardrobe and stylish gift ideas for home in our 2020 Holiday Gift Guides.

Travel-size toiletries and fancy dress-up clothes can wait. This holiday season, you’ll find stylish picks on Style Girlfriend that will have you and your space looking like a million bucks. 

After all, while you’re spending more time at home, you might as well spruce it up.

Whether you’re an OG part of the SG community, or new around here (welcome!), get ready to knock out your wish list and your shopping list.

Shop holiday gift ideas for home:

Animalist Art

Animalist Art, from $67

Why it’s a great gift: With a few clicks, you’ll create a work of art worthy of your four-legged companion.

Just select your dog or cat breed from over 150 options, and choose the design, color, and size of poster. It’s that simple.


Fredericks & Mae Palo Santo Incense, $18

Fredericks & Mae Palo Santo Incense, $18

Why it’s a great gift: Palo santo may remind you of your DMB-loving days, but it’s back in a big way.

Light it like a smudge stick and let it smoke out for a pleasantly hippie-ish home scent.


Rayo & Honey “Be Better Today” pennant, $75

Rayo & Honey “Be Better Today” pennant, $75

Black-owned biz!

Why it’s a great gift: Brooklyn-based artist Roachele Negron crafts these popular pennants featuring affirming phrases with a clean design aesthetic (Oprah’s a fan, so you know they’re cool).


Dusen Dusen for Areaware tissue box, $35

Dusen Dusen for Areaware tissue box, $35

Why it’s a great gift: A tissue box makes a great gift at the holidays because the recipient will wind up using it sooner rather than later, and they’ll have something nice to think about (“Look at this lovely tissue holder my friend/cousin/beloved co-worker gave me!”) rather than dwelling on the cold they’re nursing.

Designer Ellen Van Dusen originally launched Dusen Dusen as a womenswear line known for its bold, original prints before expanding into home goods. The collection is inspired by fine art and commercial design, as well as the brain’s reaction to color, movement, and contrast.


The Sill plant

The Sill Calathea Medallion in planter, $67

Why it’s a great gift: If you’re ever going to become someone who’s good with plants, now is it.


Havenly x Skillshare decorating class

Havenly & Skillshare “Interior Design Basics” online class

Why it’s a great gift: Online learning: kind of a bummer when it’s mandated by the threats of a global pandemic…kind of fun when you’re doing it for fun!

This virtual class from online decorating service Havenly will give you the basics for zhushing up your space on your own.


Kin Euphorics High Rhode gift idea

Kin Euphorics High Rhode, $39

Why it’s a great gift: We’d bet that a lot of people will be setting a resolution around drinking less—or not at all—in 2021.

It’s easy to get into the habit of pouring a glass of wine, crafting a cocktail, or cracking open a beer at 5pm (okay, 4:59) when working from home. Kin is a new non-alcoholic brand using adaptogens and nootropics to produce a happy buzz without the hangover.

Its first formulation, High Rhode, has notes of earthy florals, tart citrus, and warming spice. Try mixing it with juices, sodas, and bitters to make it your own.


The Little Market falalalala candle

The Little Market “falalalala” candle, $36

Why it’s a great gift: Candles are as easy to snag as gift cards, but somehow come off much more thoughtful.

Take advantage of that!


Sonia Kashuk bathroom counter organizer

Sonia Kashuk bathroom organizer, $13

Why it’s a great gift: Technically this is a makeup organizer, but if you or a loved one shares a bathroom, you’ll know there’s plenty of equal opportunity organizing to be done.


Great Jones pie dish

Great Jones pie dish, $45

Why it’s a great gift: Did you know cool kid brand Great Jones makes bakeware now? Good news, they do!


Joanna Howard Lagom throw blankets, gift ideas for home

Joanna Howard Home “Lagom” throw blanket, $150

Black-owned biz!

Why it’s a great gift: Much like candles, throw blanket are a universally acknowledged “good” gift.

Who can’t use another blanket in their house? It gets chilly! Bring on the blankets!
