1-800-Flowers.com Money Tree, from $84.99
1-800-Flowers.com Money Tree (1-800-Flowers.com)
Brighten someone’s living space with this tree that’s said to usher in prosperity. With glossy, green leaves and a braided trunk, this stunner arrives in a beige-and-ivory seagrass woven vessel.
Big Blanket Co. Original Stretch (Big Blanket Co.)
You can’t go wrong with gifting someone a comfy blanket. Especially when it has 2,100+ five-star reviews on Amazon. This 10-foot-by-10-foot blanket comes in a host of colors to suit a variety of interiors.
The Novogratz Athena Plant Stand (The Novogratz)
Our other favorite gift for devoted plant parents is this chic plant holder. Marble complements greenery wonderfully, and if you’re feeling generous, you can even throw in a potted plant trio to complete the holiday offering.
Minted Personalized Stockings (Minted)
Give a loved one a gift they’ll use year after year with these premium cotton stockings that can be personalized for free with a foil-pressed leather tag. All designs are made by independent artists, and each stocking has plenty of room for gifts from St. Nick.
Vitruvi Holiday Bundle, $150
Vitruvi Holiday Bundle (Vitruvi)
This gift helps your loved one bring a moment of calm to their living space with four festive essential oil blends (Golden, Grove, Fireside and Afterglow), plus one of the brand’s chic stone diffusers — in colors ranging from blush to charcoal — so they have everything they need to get in the spirit with inviting aromas. Our two favorite scents? A toss-up between Golden, a warm citrus scent, and Grove, a holly and jolly Christmas tree-inspired essential blend.
Bespoke Post Gingko Smart Moon Lamp (Bespoke Post)
This gorgeous orb makes for a nice visual display in any room and features a textured surface of craters and mountains to mimic the moon. Even cooler? A strong magnet allows the “moon” to float above the handsome walnut base and slowly spin.
Choose from three light settings: Warm white, white, and — our favorite for a cozy glow — yellow warm.
Minted Custom Art Gifts, from $38 framed

Bespoke Post FLIKR Personal Concrete Fireplace (Bespoke Post)
