Sure, our team loves window shopping for gifts you can wear, but what about your home? It wants to look good, too! That’s why we put together stylish gift ideas for home in this 2023 #SGapproved Holiday Gift Guide.

Now that many of us are working from home on a permanent basis, it’s no surprise gifts for sprucing up your surroundings are more popular than ever.

All items featured on Style Girlfriend are independently selected by our team. However, when you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission.

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:

Cost Plus World Market watercolor cocktail napkins (set of 4), $10

Why it’s a great gift: Buy a set (or two) of these festive, non-denominational cocktail napkins, pair with your host’s favorite booze or non-alcoholic spirit, and boom. Easy, thoughtful holiday present.

Samsung Jet Bot+ Robot Vacuum with Clean Station, $799

Why it’s a great gift: Yes, it’s ::rubs fingers together to make international sign for pricey:: but if you work from home and/or have a pet and can swing it, a self-guided vacuum might just be the gift that takes 2024 from good to great.

Houseplant ceramic ashtray set by Seth Rogen, $100

Why it’s a great gift: If you, like us, are all in on Seth Rogen’s character arc journey from stoner actor to cannabis ceramicist, then this is the gift for you.

SodaStream Terra Sparkling Water Maker, $99

Why it’s a great gift: Because staying hydrated is always a good look!

Brightland ‘the duo’ extra virgin olive oils, $74

Why it’s a great gift: Did you know olive oil can be trendy? It can! And this brand is the trendiest of them all.

If you want to impress a home chef, wrap a ribbon around this pair and wait for the ooh’ing and ahh’ing to begin.

Velograph custom cycling art, starting at $49

Why it’s a great gift: Designed by self-professed “bike-loving map nerds,” the team at Velograph will create a custom cycling map. Just punch in an address and the platform renders a map of a sixty minute bike ride.

Great for weekend road warriors who wish they could frame their Strava reports.

Courant dual device charging pad, $150

Why it’s a great gift: If you’re anything like me, deciding which device to charge—my phone or my earbuds—at the end of a long day is a constant struggle.

But no more! This elegant dual charging device not only looks good on a nightstand or end table, it keeps your electronics fully loaded.

Dartwood candle warmer lamp, $150

Why it’s a great gift: Because this type of candle warmer lamp is all the rage on TikTok, and you will seem very cool to someone who spends way too much time on that app by getting it for them.


Lake Como Idyll (Assouline, 2023), $105

Why it’s a great gift: Coffee table books are always a good idea. They’re chic and they suggest you believe the recipient to be the type of person who enjoys receiving a gift as a gift.

Virtue signaling on both sides? Maybe. But who cares! Look at how good that thing looks laid open!

The Sill Calathea Medallion in planter, $67

The Sill plant

Why it’s a great gift: There’s never been a better time to become someone who is good with plants.

Animalist Art, $70

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 (the above is ‘Abstract’), color, and size of poster. It’s that simple.


Target doormat, $13

Why it’s a great gift: A doormat is one of those things you can look at every day and know needs attention but you just keep bypassing. Like flossing for your front hallway.

It’s why giving a new (totally affordable!) doormat as a gift is so thoughtful and unexpected. Pair it with a bottle of wine or a small plant for a thoughtful host gift at the holidays.


Dusen Dusen for Areaware tissue box, $40

urban outfitters dusen dusen tissue box

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.


Figlia non-alcoholic apertivo, $43


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 2024.

Which is great. With the sober-curious lifestyle gaining steam, so many new and interesting non-alcoholic options have been birthed. Like Figlia, a spicy-sweet aperitif that makes a perfect holiday party gift.

Drink it on its own, or make a Fireside Fiore, the brand’s booze-free take on a hot toddy.


Public Goods cedar and suede candle, $12

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!

This one by Public Goods is a great dupe for the luxe (read: $$$$) Le Labo Santal 33 scent.


Target bathroom organizer, $15

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.


Jiggy 800-piece puzzle, $49

jiggy puzzle

Why it’s a great gift: Each JIGGY puzzle comes in a reusable glass jar and includes a tube of glue, a straight-edge tool for completing a frame-worthy masterpiece.

This Natasha Cunningham–illustrated puzzle features a surrealist portrait, perfect for hanging in your home.


Johanna Howard Home “Lagom” throw blanket, $165

Joanna Howard Lagom throw blankets, gift ideas for home

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!
