Ready or not, gifting season is officially here. Fear not though — I have you fully covered with ideas for everyone (yes, everyone!) on your list this year, whether they’re plant parentsdesign enthusiasts, or the cozy homebody types. As AT’s resident shopping editor, I did my fair share of gift-hunting this year to uncover some of the most stylish, unique finds your friends and fam will love. One particular spot I scored big? West Elm. That’s right, the beloved home brand has no shortage of pretty, practical, and budget-friendly little presents and stocking stuffers available for the buying. From disco ball ornaments to cheese boards and wine coasters, this roundup is chock full of gift inspiration. Happy holiday shopping!

Would it really be the holiday season without nutcrackers? I love this one, though, because it’s a contemporary take on the classic figurine versions. Made from marble and metal, this doubles as a design-savvy decor piece for any space.

Speaking of wine, let’s talk cheese: This board is an amazing option for anyone who loves entertaining. It’s spacious enough to stash all the charcuterie board staples, plus easy to transport with the two gold handles.

Go the extra mile, too, with these matching marble cheese knives. Because nothing says hap-brie (sorry) holidays quite like three stylish utensils made for snacking on gouda, cheddar, and beyond.

These candlesticks are a West Elm bestseller for a reason: they’re beautiful, minimal, and come in three sizes. You can also buy them in sets of two, four, or six, or gift an assortment of heights so they can mix and match.

Coffee table, meet cool coasters. This pretty agate set comes with four one-of-a-kind pieces, which pair well with any holiday mug — seriously, any mug.

That leads me to my next gift idea: animal-themed coffee mugs. Surprise the pet parent in your life with a cat, Cavapoo, or Boston terrier-inspired vessel, all of which support the ASPCA.

These candleholders are designed to look like a mini village setup — and feel too good to pass up as a gift for yourself. Choose from small or medium sizes, plus a ceramic or wood finish, and add a tealight to dress up any mantel or windowsill.
