Crosley Vintage Portable TurntableTo be honest, I don’t have a single record in my house — but the look and feel of this turntable is total #HomeDecorGoals. Especially, if you pick yours in pink! Shop: $89 at Bloomingdales.
Coddle Memory Foam PillowNot many people remeber that updating your pillows regularly is as important as replacing your tooth brush. The newer it is, the better is your sleep. And if you really care about your health (or the health of a person you are gifting it to), memory foam pillow is the way to go. The pillows we have at home are by Coddle and I can’t recommend them enough! Shop: $69 at Coddle.
Soap RocksThese gem-alike pieces are actually… soap! Made from mild, extra long-lasting vegetable glycerin soap, these soap jewels come in different scents — that make them a perfectly giftable option. Shop: $13 at Bloomingdale’s.
Architectural Digest at 100 Coffee Table BookI don’t know a person who’s not inspired by big, glossy, and fabulous coffee table books. And this book documenting the visual history of Architectural Digest, has a foreword by Anna Wintour. It’s a limited edition book dedicated to the magazine’s 100th anniversary. Shop: $100 at Anthropologie.
Villeroy & Boch Metro Chic DinnerwareLatest and greatest collection by beloved brand, created in art deco style. Perfect for a city dweller (or a metropolitan family) with a sophisticated taste in dinnerware. Shop: from $35 at Bloomingdales.
Plover Gray Squares NapkinsThis gorgeous set 100% cotton napkins is perfect for anyone who loves to host dinners and entertain at home. Or for a foodie who’s all about natural fabrics and textures.

Rachel Zoe Jewelry StandYou don’t have to have a big collection of jewelry to enjoy this gorgeous stand. It doesn’t matter what jewelry you have — it looks so much better when properly displayed. Not to mention that you are more likely to wear jewelry pieces that are open for a display. Shop: from $29 at Pottery Barn Teen.
KitchenAid Countertop BlenderI was all about my NutriBullet until I realize that it’s not big enough if you want to make a smoothie for two people or cook a soup. This time around, I’m all about full-size blenders that are not only functional but also super chic. Shop: $179 at Amazon.
Copper Measurement CupsIf you are looking for a gift that looks more expensive than it cost, definitely consider this set of copper measurement cups from World Market. Not only the quality is impressive (these actually look designer) but they go for under $10. Shop: $9.99 at World Market.
MacKenzie-Childs Bow Dots Napkin RingI love bows, I love polka dots. What else to explain? LOL On a serious note, these are the most unique napkin holders I’ve seen in a while — and I’m certainly getting them for my own home. Shop: $18 at Neiman Marcus.
Cook Once, Eat All WeekI’ve been raving and I continue raving about this cookbook. Guys: if you don’t know (or don’t like to) cook, this book will change your life! The idea is that you use 3 main ingredients to cook a week worth of food, plus freeze some meals for later. I went through a few weeks already — every single meal tastes like a restaurant meal, and it takes under 2 hours a week to cook it all. Shop: $31 at Amazon.
WMF Function 4 Stainless Steel Cookware SetMy friend Lora has been raving about these pots for a while and I finally got a set for myself. What makes them different is a lid that has holes in it — so you can use it for staining by turning the lid a certain way. So unique and so handy for anyone who cooks! Shop: $305 on Amazon.
DeLonghi Dinamica Fully Automatic Coffee Maker & Espresso MachineI’ve been waiting for the opportunity to get this automatic espresso and coffee maker for the longest time! And when it finally went on sale, I was so so happy! What was especially important for me is to find a coffee machine that will not use pods and just real coffee beans. This one is exactly what I wanted. Also, it’s so easy to use! Basically, it’s a barista-level coffee machine — where you just need to press one button to get a cup of joe. Shop: $999 at Williams Sonoma.
