“This Scentsicles set is the key to a great-smelling home for the holidays and is affordable and long-lasting. And they’re much safer to keep around the house than a candle!” —Adrienne Breaux, Real Home Director

“Along with holiday shopping season comes more travel, more time out and about, and more opportunities for package thieves to grab your purchases right from your door — before they can be wrapped and gifted to others. Well, this year, I’m trying Ring’s new Stick Up Cam Pro. It’s an indoor/outdoor, pro-grade, battery-operated camera you can ‘stick’ anywhere you may need an extra pair of eyes — like a porch, by your garbage cans, or in a hidden corner your doorbell camera might miss. I love how flexible and easy-to-use it is, and the video quality is next-level. A perfect and timely upgrade!” —Charli Penn, Executive Lifestyle Director

“Dualit’s Classic Kettle is a total splurge, but if you’re a tea person (or you really want to treat the tea-lover in your life this holiday season), you will 100 percent get your money’s worth out of this polished stainless steel stunner, day in and day out. It boils water in just 90 seconds and has easy-to-read cup markers, so you can see exactly how much water you’re adding for each use. It’s super-quiet while boiling and easy on the eyes, too, so you’ll want to leave it out on the counter — especially if you happen to have the matching iconic Dualit toaster.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

“I’ve been DIYing painted birch slice ornaments for both my Christmas tree and to give to friends and family, and these paint pens from Primrosia have been a dream to use. Last year when I made these ornaments, I used regular old paint and brushes, which I do still love, but the paint pen method requires so much less prep and basically no cleanup. While some paint markers on the market have fabric tips that dry out, this set has a nylon tip that stays airtight when not in use. I'm already eyeing all the other available color sets! (And psst: If this sounds fun to you, you can snag unfinished wood rounds for $10 on Amazon, too.)” —Megan Baker Detloff, Home Projects Director

No. 2

“It’s prime holiday hosting season, and with plenty of people coming over I have made it a mission to elevate the bathroom that my guests will be using. I’ve already upgraded my hand soap and swapped to fancier toilet paper (it’s wavy and ultra soft!). One more upgrade I made? I added this luxe-looking and smelling post-flush drops bottle for guests to use. The No. 2 post-flush perfume drops feature notes of mandarin, geranium, and lemon myrtle to neutralize smells and keep this space as fresh as possible.” —Stephanie Nguyen, Cleaning & Organizing Editor
