From filling your home with fabulous scents to tech gadgets that will kick it up a notch, these gifts are great to give to anyone (or put on your own wishlist). Keep scrolling to see each of my favorite gifts for the home!

  • 1 of 10 Saje AromaGem Ultrasonic Nebulizer
  • Saje AromaGem Ultrasonic Nebulizer
  • Saje AromaGem Ultrasonic Nebulizer, $69.95 CA

    Everyone needs a Saje nebulizer in their home. This chic style fits well into any decor and creates a soothing, serene environment without using heat. For a complete gift, pair it with one of Saje’s lovely diffuser blend sets (like the Best of Saje Diffuser Blend Collection, $55). Available at Saje.

  • 2 of 10 Elgato Avea
  • Elgato Avea
  • Elgato Avea, $49.95

    Typically, I’d say gifting a lightbulb may not be the best idea, but in this case I have to say it’s okay. This smart LED lightbulb can be controlled by an iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch and can turn any color. Choose from the preset dynamic moods, or choose your own color. My favorite feature? The sunrise effect which gradually gets brighter as your alarm goes off in the morning. Available at Amazon.

  • 3 of 10 Heritage The Rock 12
  • Heritage The Rock 12
  • Heritage The Rock 12" Frying Pan, $39.99

    Anyone who spends any amount of time in the kitchen will know just how important a good frying pan is, and this rock-like one is by far the best one I’ve ever used. I never thought I’d be raving about a frying pan on a beauty site, but I think everyone needs to have one in their home. The rock-like surface makes it completely non-stick. Watch the infomercial—because it’s exactly as good as it looks. Available at Bed Bath and Beyond.

  • 4 of 10 Diptyque Coloured Glass 3 Candle Set
  • Diptyque Coloured Glass 3 Candle Set
  • Diptyque Coloured Glass 3 Candle Set, $100

    At any given moment, you’ll find at least a few Diptyque candles around my home. This limited-edition trio is not only beautiful to look at, but the tree-inspired scents will feel like you brought the beauty of nature indoors. Nordstrom.

  • 5 of 10 Kate Spade Two of a Kind Dot Shaker
  • Kate Spade Two of a Kind Dot Shaker
  • Kate Spade Two of a Kind Dot Shaker, $50

    The perfect addition to any bar cart or entertaining tray, this martini shaker is equal parts fashionable and functional. Available at Kate Spade.

  • 6 of 10 Beats Pill+ Speaker
  • Beats Pill+ Speaker
  • Beats Pill+ Speaker, $229.95

    The next-generation sound system that you can take with you anywhere. Available in black or white, you can pair up your iPhone any other bluetooth-enabled device for crisp, clear sound (and even a speakerphone for high-quality hands-free calls). Available at Apple.

  • 7 of 10 Nespresso Evoluo
  • Nespresso Evoluo
  • Nespresso Evoluo, $249

    As a true coffee addict, I can honestly say Nespresso machines deliver the best single-serve coffees and espressos I’ve ever had (and I’ve tried ’em all). It brews such a thick crema, my guests thought I had added cream to the coffee. It looks luxurious, and with the self-contained trash receptacle, you can place it anywhere in the home. Available at Amazon.

  • 8 of 10 Indigo Luxe Cozy Throw
  • Indigo Luxe Cozy Throw
  • Indigo Luxe Cozy Throw, $80 CA

    I received a luxe throw like this one several years ago as a gift, and I still cuddle up with it on my couch nearly every day. It’s incredibly soft and generously sized to share. Available in Canada at Indigo.

  • 9 of 10 Apple TV
  • Apple TV
  • Apple TV, $149

    More and more people are dropping their cable subscriptions in lieu of Netflix or iTunes and an Apple TV is the perfect alternative. The newest model features built-in storage to download apps and games, utilizes Siri to help search for the perfect movie or TV show to watch and has an improved remote for easy browsing. Available at Apple.

  • 10 of 10 David's Tea Perfect Mug
  • David's Tea Perfect Mug
  • David's Tea Perfect Mug, $23

    One of my favorite items to gift to a tea-lover, these adorable tea mugs are perfect for brewing a single cup instead of a whole pot. The mug features a fine-mesh infuser that sits perfectly in the cup, with a lid to keep the liquid hot and serve as a coaster when you’re finished infusing. I’m currently in love with this pink and gold pattern, but there’s always lots of other ones to choose from. Available at David’s Tea.
