Gifts for a Happy Home

This time of year, we treasure quiet moments at home as much as gatherings with family and friends.  The good news is gifting the host and the homebody can be one and the same — either way, they’ll delight in gifts tailored to turning their pad into a souped-up sanctuary — making your trip to the mall twice as efficient.

 

See our previous gift guide round-ups here, and check out the rest of our gift suggestions for a souped-up sanctuary below.


In partnership with Cadillac Fairview

Candles are a go-to gift, so your hostess is bound to receive at least a couple this season. You know what she won’t receive? A candle wick trimmer. A cleanly cut wick allows for an even burn, ensuring those candles last her till next holiday season.
