Gift Guide: Gifts for the Home

For your favorite host to your favorite family, gifting something for the home is always a sweet sentiment around the holidays. We have 7 ideas.

1. Ring Doorbell 

We just installed our own Ring Video Doorbell and now can’t imagine how we survived without it. You get notified on your smartphone every time someone is at the door (or you get an amazon delivery) and are able to see and speak to whoever is here. The video recording is a great added security bonus as well.  Perfect gift for the smart home lover. $179.99

Available at JCPenney

 

2. Soundwave Art

 

Magical. Having a baby’s cooing or wedding vows or a special someone’s message carved on wood & then hearing it on an app is technology done right. Soundwaves produce a pattern & that pattern is turned into art by Soundwaveart, a super creative company. You can add media with their new easy app. Record online, upload your own audio or video file. Pictured is cut out of Birch Wood, then framed in Italian Wood Molding with Glass front. $319.99
Available at soundwaveart.com

3. Molekule Air Purifier

Molekule is a chic and modern new air purifier that completely destroys pollutants. Unlike other air purifiers that simply capture dust and mold before releasing those particles back into the air, Molekule completely destroys indoor air pollutants. Molekule was just named to TIME Magazine’s list of 25 Best Inventions of 2017, a list that honors the best inventions making the world better, simpler and even a little more fun. $799

4. GuruNanda Mini USB Tree Diffuser 

For the essential oil obsessed, the GuruNanda Mini USB Tree Diffuser is the perfect gift. The diffucer utilizes ultrasonic waves to diffuse essential oils for up to 4 hours. It comes with three therpature grade essential oils (lavendar, peppermint an frankincense) and is a great way to add some serious spa vibes to any home or office.  $24.99
Available at Walmart and GuruNanda

 

5. Away Luggage 

 

Away Luggage is changing the game in the luggage industry. It’s light, affordable, durable AND has some amazing collaborations with companies like Madwell, West Elm, Photographers like Gray Malin. It has a built in USB charger and you can monogram, permanently or with their line of stickers. $245 for carry on sized.

6. Pom Pom Throws 

Stock up on cozy pom throws for everyone on your list. These are affordable, under $15, throws are totally on trend and festive with their pom poms. Easy affordable and easily giftable, just wrap with a ribbon and give. Don’t forget to bring gently used coat to donate and save an additional 10% of your entire Burlington purchase. $15
