Homebodies — The Ultimate Home Gift Guide is Here!
There’s no place like home!
Since our Hip2Save team works remotely, we’re a bunch of self-proclaimed homebodies given we spend so much time in our humble abodes. We love the idea of incorporating decor that gives our space that homey feel by creating a warm and welcoming environment.
In this gift idea guide, we’ve pulled together the ultimate in cozy essentials that anyone will swoon over. In fact, we’re pretty sure after receiving these thoughtful gift ideas, your giftees will be so content they may never want to leave home!
1. Plant decor
Live plants are such a perfect way to add a homey feel to any house and really cozy-up a room. While some plants can be tough to take care of, pretty much everyone has a green thumb for succulents! Check out these Fat Plants San Diego succulents that you can have shipped straight to your door! Each package comes with a variety of beautiful, live succulents, and we couldn’t resist these adorable Owl Pot planters to go with them! These planters are neutral enough to go with anyone’s home decor and add so much charm to these cute, little plants.
Who wouldn’t love a good boost of oxygen delivered to their door every month?! If you know someone who just can’t get enough succulents, a subscription to Succulent Studio Plants is the gift that keeps on giving! This California-based company grows all of their succulents, and each month they’ll ship two seasonal plants anyone is sure to love.
Hip Tip: Dealing with a tried and true brown thumb? No worries! These plants thrive on bad gardening skills.
2. Essential oil diffuser
With so many benefits like improving your health, increasing energy, and sleeping better, diffusing essential oils is one trend we don’t see going out of style anytime soon! A VicTsing Woodgrain diffuser creates a relaxing environment with just a few drops of oil that any homebody will appreciate. This multifunctional diffuser uses vibrating sound waves to create ultra-fine aromatherapy mist and can also double as a humidifier; perfect for getting through those cold winter months.
This beautiful diffuser comes in four different neutral colors that will fit seamlessly in any home. And with four different time setting modes, you’ll enjoy the calming aromas for up to six to eight hours!
“This diffuser was on my daughter-in-law’s wish list so I got it for her. She used it at their house while I was visiting, and I enjoyed it so much I got my own! Hers is black and I got the brown. They are very attractive with good instructions included. I have used this every day since receiving it, even my husband loves it!”
3. Essential oil sets
If you’re planning to scoop up the essential oils diffuser as we mentioned above for your special someone (or maybe even for yourself) this year, you’ll be needing some oils to complete your gift. Whether diffusing or not, oils provide mood-enhancing benefits that help you to de-stress after a long day, like this Aura Cacia 6-oil set. Use with an oil warmer or diffuser, or simply add a couple of drops to a hot bath for a soothing experience. This is a gift that we think any homebody will enjoy.
Larger sets are available from ArtNaturals with their 8 oil set, or you can really enhance someone’s oil collection with this complete 12-piece set from the highly rated essential oil company, Plant Therapy!
4. Home decor books
The key to creating the ultimate home experience are rooms that invite you in and leave you feeling relaxed and cozy. However, not all of us know how to go about creating these spaces, which makes these books from well-known designers perfect for gifting!
From table tops to bookshelves, a curated home decor book can help anyone create beautifully decorated spaces you’ll never want to leave. We turn to books like Styled by Emily Henderson and The Nesting Place by Myquillin Smith for impeccable home decor inspiration. They focus on finding beauty in everyday imperfections and giving you the freedom to take risks to create the home and lifestyle that you’ve always wanted.
And who doesn’t love airy, farmhouse style made popular by the hit show Fixer Upper? Joanna Gaines has completely swept us all off our feet with her charm and timeless, beautiful home designs, so we couldn’t wait to snag a copy of her latest book Homebody.
“This book is so awesome. I love how Joanna takes us on a journey of our own taste and what we feel it would take for our home to feel like a place we never want to leave…by showing us how to find our own inspiration. I bought 3 more for gifts for my family because I am enjoying it so much. Wonderful, wonderful book! A great learning tool! You will not be disappointed.”
: Nest Candles
: Voluspa candles
: Wickology candles
I don’t know about you, but the second I light a candle in my home, I feel completely at peace. I love enjoying the aroma of a delightful smelling candle. They add such a relaxing element to any home, whether you’re curled up with a good book or enjoying the company of friends.
The flicker of a candle wick creates its own ambiance outside of just the fragrance. Plus, the jars can be repurposed when all the wax has been burned out. Whether they’re for creating a welcoming atmosphere in the living room, freshening up the bathroom, or keeping a little light on the kitchen counter, a gorgeous candle has its place in every room of the house!

6. Weighted blanket
Know someone who has trouble sleeping or wakes up with anxiety? I feel like we all know at least one person or struggle with these things ourselves. This Weighted Idea Calming Weighted Blanket is the perfect gift that can help with better sleeping habits!
The weighted blanket is designed to encourage deep and restful sleep for everyone and is even rated the #1 Best Seller in Kids’ Quilts & Sets. The inner layer features 100% premium cotton fabric making it soft and breathable. The added weight of this blanket helps to naturally relax the nervous system and reduces stress by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged. Who wouldn’t want to fall asleep like that?!
“After a month of using this product, I am very happy with my Weighted Idea blanket purchase. The material is soft, and the recommended weight guide provided the perfect weight for me, not too heavy or too light. The blanket definitely helps me sleep with less tossing and turning and is perfect for taking a nap, too. I would definitely recommend this blanket for anyone who’s hoping to relax and sleep easier.”

7. Canvas Prints
Some of the most meaningful presents I have gifted (and have been the most loved) are photos to hang in their home or office. We love the canvas prints from Easy Canvas Prints because of their high-quality materials, easy to use website, and their friendly customer service. You also can’t beat their prices! With their awesome promotions, you can gift multiple prints or even order some canvases for yourself.

Are you even relaxing if you don’t have a cozy blanket to curl up with? This is a homebody essential! As soon as I’m curling up on the couch or hitting the bed, I grab my favorite blanket. This Pom Pom Blanket is such an adorable one for gift giving.
I love the huge pom poms which add a unique and fun flair to this blanket you don’t see everywhere else. Not only is it eye-catching, but it’s the perfect amount of weight and warmth to enjoy snuggling all night.
