Home gifts under $100

OK, the largest version of these octagonal marble bowls rings in over $100, but the two smaller sizes don’t, and one could use them for everything from serving nuts to holding jewelry, change, and what have you on a bedside table.

Just a really handsome handmade walnut cutting board, which one could easily utilize as a cheese board too.

This Orla Kiely vase has a deco-ish feel I like a lot, and green in general is just a good, versatile color for a vase to be.

These dish towels would brighten up any kitchen; I also quite like these.

I am such a big fan of this Roland pine candle from Soap & Paper Factory—it smells just like a December hike in the woods.

These smoked pint glasses would be just as good for serving a morning smoothie as a beer.

Such a cute little floral wireless charger from Rifle Paper Co.

A cheese dome is an awfully grown-up thing to own, and not something a person is likely to purchase for herself, making it an ideal gift.

A ceramic match striker that’d be the perfect gift for a friend with a fireplace, or maybe just a serious candle habit.

This 16oz. canteen keeps drinks hot or cold, and couldn’t be a whole lot cuter.

A leather oven mitt is awfully sophisticated.

I might order these salt and pepper grinders for myself: they’re so nicely minimal.

Puzzles are apparently all the rage at the moment, and this one from Christian Lacroix is especially pretty.

A ceramic berry bowl is another gift one would be unlikely to purchase for herself, and it really does come in quite handy.

Garlic lasts a lot longer when you place it in a pot like this, and I think it’s great-looking too.

And finally: you can’t go wrong with a classic Stendig calendar.

    Thank you for this blog, site, or whatever is the correct term. You lead me to so many sites I would never know of on my own.
    And, the Friday posts are very interesting and informative.

    The puzzles from Rifle Paper Co. are also quite good. I bought two of the designs and they were really fun to do and they are so pretty.

      I just ordered one from The New Yorker for my daughter. They’re of old covers, which is kind of fun.

    I have a small white marble bowl with a cover on my bedside table. It is the perfect size for my watch, rings and earrings. It was an impulse buy, because it is pretty and felt nice in the cup of my hands, but it has turned out to be one of the most useful things I’ve ever bought.

    I love those jewelry dishes! I’m also wondering what people like for holding their necklaces so they don’t get tangled? Anything pretty and stylish out there? My system of draping them everywhere is not working anymore!

      Definitely not for everyone , but you may want to check out this Etsy site. I had an earring holder custom made – the creator sent me in-progress pics and tweaked according to my comments. https://www.etsy.com/shop/ViolaByrdVintage?ref=yr_purchases

        Oh, I love those! Unfortunately, our climate is so humid for a good portion of the year that anything I leave out on my dresser gets ruined.

    Stupid home “decor” question that I’d never ask if you knew me in real life…..what do you guys put your q-tips in? I hide mine in the medicine cabinet because I can’t find a nice enough jar/holder….

      I use a (faux) antique apothecary jar, in a q tip size, a bought a set of three on Amazon, one for cotton rounds, one for q tips, and one for really colorful claus porto mini soaps https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B086YJ75PL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1&fpw=alm the whole set look very pretty on top of a dresser in my bathroom

    I can vouch for the dish towels that I first saw on a previous GOACA post. They are stylish but also absorbent and dry quickly. Fashion + Function!

      Ooooh … thanks for the hot tip!! I rather dislike pretty but useless kitchen towels. I liked these but suspected they would not be absorbent. Happy to be wrong. … … In other news, a factoid: I am snooping around on Nordys rack, and there is some Everlane there. Did everyone else know this? I do not Everlane myself, too boxy for me, but I know there are some fans here.
