Homebody Gift Bundle
What’s better for a homebody than a bundle of cozy items that will add comfort to your life this winter? Included in the McGee & Co. bundle is a gorgeous neutral Anwar Throw made of silk and wool, plus a Mahogany & Musk 9-ounce soy candle, with notes patchouli, ocean air, and leafy greens. Light the candle, snuggle up under the throw, and call it a night.
Chic Slipper Slides
Slippers don’t have to be frumpy. In fact, I fully believe they should make you look as good as you feel! These classic smoking slippers come in a slide style that easily slip on, and have seven layers of comfort, vegan velvet exterior, and beautiful faux fur lining. So cozy, and SO chic.
Sign me up for any comfy clothing item that is casual enough to wear around the house, but cute enough to wear out to run errands or grab dinner, too! This cable knit sweater is perfectly slouchy, and the chunky coastal-inspired texture is the perfect addition to anyone’s closet.
Green Marble Box Tray
Homebodies can still live in style and have a beautiful catch-all spot for their keys, mail, or other trinkets.This scalloped-edge, green marble box tray is a gorgeous addition to any entry table, sideboard, or console (and makes for a fun color and texture combo to add interest to any home).
Midnight Recovery Face Oil
I love a good at-home spa moment, and that includes finding skincare products that feel as luxurious as they are effective. This Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate Face Oil helps hydrate the skin during harsh winters, and the blend of lavender, squalene, and evening primrose makes your skin glow-y and radiant by morning.
Cast Iron Dutch Oven
If I could recommend one thing everyone needs in their kitchen, it’s a great (and beautiful, of course) Dutch oven. Perfect for soups, stews, chilis, breads, roasts, and so much more, these heavy-duty pots are a necessity for comfort-meal cooking all year long. This one is much more affordable than many, making it a great, easy gift!
An Oil Diffuser with Essential Oils
I was actually gifted this oil diffuser and absolutely love it. I really like how it looks compared to other diffusers — very streamlined and simple. I can’t get over how lovely diffusing oils makes me feel. Where some scented candles can leave me headachy, essential oils actually help boost your mood, energy, and alertness. It’s pretty amazing, and these oils smell heavenly.
A Handmade Mug
Your homebody loved ones likely love themselves a cozy drink, whether that’s a tea, latte, or Hot Toddy. This gorgeous handmade stone and porcelain mug makes for the perfect special drinkware for their favorite warm beverage. I love that it’s unique and beautiful, but also dishwasher and microwave safe.
An Espresso Maker
Not going to lie, it’s hard for me to give up my pour-over that I listed in last year’s gift guide, but an espresso maker is on my wishlist this year. I think both can be beneficial for different occasions (and uses!). An at-home cappuccino sounds pretty divine on snowy, quiet mornings, and this espresso maker makes it easy to get that artisan coffee-shop effect in your own home.
A Bedside Organizer & Charger
This Catch:3 Essentials charging and organizing tray is pretty ingenious, not going to lie. It charges most electronics (including many phones, smartwatches, tablets, AirPods, etc.) by just setting them on top of it. And you can store your daily essentials like rings, watches, keys, or lotion in the storage area. Place it on your bedside or entryway table for easy (and fast!) charging and storage for your everyday items. Bonus that it also looks sophisticated!
A Body Care Gift Set
This brand carries the most lovely body and skincare products — and this Geranium Leaf body care gift set is no exception. It comes with a refreshing body cleanser, nourishing body balm, and an exfoliating body scrub in a fresh, citrusy, green aroma. So lovely for a cozy self-care night at home.
Stylish Claw Clips
A homebody is sure to love personal essentials, like the perfect claw clip. As someone with long hair, it can be hard to find clips that hold my hair well and look cute. These clips do the job, and are made with recycled materials for an extra bonus of sustainability.
Clean Nail Polish
An at-home mani/pedi can be a moment of respite if we embrace it. This line of non-toxic nail polish is my go-to when I’m doing my nails at home. The quality is perfection, the colors are gorgeous and rich (I’m digging this deep coffee color called Carob), and I love that they’re intentional about the ingredients used in each product.
Wine night, anyone? A decanter helps open up your red wines before enjoying, so you can experience the fullness of their flavor profiles as they “breathe.” This simple and contemporary decanter comes with a wood base for a sophisticated and balanced look.
Robe life is the best life. Who’s with me? And if the robe feels like it could be in a 5-star hotel, you know you’re living. This one checks that box,and its linen material makes it soft and light enough to wear year-round.
