Gift Guide 2014: For the Home & Kitchen

gift guide, this holiday, gifts for the home, gifts for the kitchen, gifts for the foodie, gifts for the kitchen lover, gifts for the house Sometime over the last few years, getting things for my home or kitchen has become nearly as exciting as getting new clothes or books. It really takes time to turn a house (or apartment) into a home and it’s fun to add your own little personal touches. I like to switch up the decor in my room from time to time and I’m slowly building up my baking tools (next on my list- a donut pan). These are a few fun gift ideas that I think many people would be happy to receive for their home and/or kitchen. I mentioned that I had a bunch of ideas for gift guides, but I think I’m aiming to do about five in total, so there might be a few more combo guides like this one. As usual, everything in this guide is under $75!

    i love this whole collection. I’m such a sucker for home goods stuff.


    • Thank you! I am now too, although I remember when I never really thought about it at all!

  • Those coasters are adorable. I also love metallic and the pillow is lovely.
    Rustic Elegance

    • I didn’t realize it at first, but I kind of went with a gold metallic theme for the home stuff :)

  • Jessica

    I love everything! I honestly can’t choose a single item, they are all wonderful.

    • Yay, I’m so glad you liked it! :)

  • SHE Jenmarie

    I’m seriously enjoying your gift guides so far! That “stuff” dish made me smile. How cute is that!? I also like the initial candle!

    • Thank you so much- I’m so pleased to hear that! The stuff dish is adorable and I love the initial candle because it can be personalized :)

  • I love buying housewares, so much so that I just stockpile them in my closet for when I finally have a place of my own. Those serving spoons are so adorable!

    Chic on the Cheap

    • That’s a good idea. You’re going to have so much great stuff when you move to your own place!

  • #8 & #14! love. ;)

    • Yay! I wouldn’t mind owning either/both of those ;)

  • So fun! I’m in love with that cutting board. I can’t wait for a day when I can have a kitchen with white marble countertops!

    • From time to time I think about my dream kitchen too! I love white marble :)

  • That is the coolest basket– if you lined it, I think it would make a particularly glam wastebasket.

    • Yes it would! If I had space for this, I’d totally buy it.
