There’s nothing worse than being this close to Christmas and realizing that you’ve forgotten someone on your list. This is doubly-true if you prefer shopping online versus in-store—we’ve only got a few days left in the holiday season, and we’re coming up on shipping deadlines for many of our favorite online retailers.
Thankfully, Wayfair is still offering free two-day shipping on many of its items, meaning you can shop for Aunt Betty without leaving the couch. And for those gifts that aren’t eligible for free shipping, you can still get them in time if you pay for expedited shipping.
From blankets to baking appliances, planters to pillows, Wayfair has your homeware gifting needs covered in these last few days before the holiday. Check out these 15 gifting options before it’s too late!
1. The gift you can give other gifts in
Looking to give a gift this season that doesn’t waste any wrapping paper? The Laurel Modern Farmhouse wicker basket can solve your packaging problems. Throw a few of the other items on this list inside, or spruce it up with a bow and give it on its own.
Customers love the large size and depth of this basket. With rustic roping details on the handles and a classic look, this is a perfect gift for the person who has everything—or the person who loves receiving wine in nice packages.
2. A cozy blanket for the person that’s obsessed with hygge
Give someone the gift of cozy this holiday season with the Nader Tweed Knitted Throw—which, by the way, comes in 36 colors. That’s right—36. So even the friend that only likes home décor in that particular shade of Dark Citron will be happy.
This blanket is a hit among more than 7,000 reviewers thanks to being “super soft and cozy” and machine washable, so it’s bound to survive the hustle and bustle of the season.
3. A vase for the inevitable poinsettia delivery
Winter can get a bit dreary, and a pop of green (or red) in a space can make all the difference in brightening the gloom. Give people a home for their plant children with this sweet, distressed Payne Table Vase.
The vase comes in three sizes, and many reviewers noted that they bought the large and small sizes together as a matched set. They also call to attention the lightweight structure and understated color palette of the vase. It should be mentioned that the vase is intended for indoor use only.
4. An aromatherapy set for the person that needs to wind down
With scents from tea tree to orange, this six-scent Pursonic essential oils gift set is sure to help your giftee get in whatever mood they’re feeling. Use the oils in a diffuser or compatible humidifier to stave off the dry winter air.
Reviewers love giving this set as a gift! Some warn that several sets arrived with loose caps, but Wayfair replaced them almost immediately.
5. A lantern for the friend with many candles and few places to put them
There’s nothing more festive than a Christmas fireplace or mantle, and the Tall Wood and Glass Lantern from Beachcrest Home is a perfect addition to the stockings being hung with care this holiday. Wayfair recommends using the lantern with any 3 Watt battery-operated candle for the optimal effect, and reviewers love pairing the rustic wood of the lantern with warmer toned candles.
6. Metallic hanging planters for the one with a green thumb
Keep your succulents, ivies, and ferns high and dry (but not too dry) in the Engelmen 2-Piece Iron Hanging Planter Set. This duo of metallic planters is available in gold, nickel, and black, meaning they’ll look gorgeous regardless of your giftee’s home furnishings.
Reviewers wrote that the matte finish of the planters was slightly different from the photos, but welcome. Many noted that the lack of drainage hole meant that they had to watch how much water they gave their plants, so keep that in mind before purchasing if you know your giftee is a serial over-waterer (even though they claim they only watered those succulents “once or twice” before they died).
7. A classic mug by a classic brand
You can never have enough coffee mugs. Le Creuset makes many excellent cookware products, but this stoneware coffee mug will offer name-brand quality at a bargain price and keep your fanciest gift recipient happy. With great heat retention and fourteen colors to choose from, this gift is a sure crowd-pleaser.
According to reviewers, this mug keeps tea and coffee hot for longer than most expected, and most loved the size of the mug. And if you’re looking to bundle your gift, you can check out our favorite coffee products of the year.
8. A hand-mixer for the ‘Bake Off’ fan in your life
We love this mixer, and currently, Wayfair offers it at a bargain price.
It’s available in eight colors, including yellow, blue, green, and pink. The KitchenAid Ultra Power 5-Speed Hand Mixer is a great gift for anyone that’s been spending too many hours watching cozy baking shows, and wants to try their hand at baking, but doesn’t want to commit to a large stand mixer (yet).
Reviewers love saving space with this smaller mixer and tend to use it for low-maintenance mixing jobs like cake mixes or small batches of cookies. Grab it before it’s unavailable in the color you want!
9. A throw pillow for the person that won’t buy it for themselves
We all have a person on our list who wants to decorate more but doesn’t know where to start—so get them moving on the interior of their dreams with the Taylorsville Cotton Lumbar Pillow. Embroidered with a chic pattern and just neutral enough to mix with many décor styles, this pillow comes in six great colors, with a cotton insert included.
Reviewers love the pillow for their living rooms and bedroom sets. Many write that it’s softer than expected, but do you really know anyone who will touch a pillow and say, “You know what? This is just too fluffy for my liking.”
10. A trendy pouf for the person who needs more seating
It was a big year for poufs. Poufs are excellent because they’re versatile—they can be used as extra seats, as footrests, as side tables—you name it. The Guion Pouf is a great neutral accent for the home. The pouf is sturdy enough to support objects and people, but also soft enough to still be comfy.
11. Reusable containers for the cook in your life
Storage is a kitchen staple, and this set of storage canisters offers sustainable food storage with style. They’re a great gift for the person that’s buying in bulk, and while they’re not machine washable, reviewers are impressed with the strong seal on the top and classic look of the containers.
12. A bread box for the person that picked up a new hobby this year
We all know someone that picked up breadmaking in the last few years, and the Harter Bread Box is a perfect gift for the person that’s running out of space for all their artisanal loaves. The box boasts a convenient label and a classic wooden lid. Most people love the rustic look of the box and recommend it for smaller loaves of bread.
13. Cute wine glasses for any Christmas cocktail needs
Who doesn’t love adorable drinkware? The Jasper 20 oz. Crystal Stemless Wine Glass (which comes in a set of four) is a great gift for just about anyone on your list. The glasses currently come in two kinds of metallic finishes in a honeycomb pattern, and will lend any bar cart a pop of cheer this season.
Reviewers love to display these glasses and recommend hand-washing to avoid scuffing the finish.
14. The mixology gift that keeps on giving
We love an interactive gift, and this mixologist set is a perfect gift for that person in your life who’s looking to pick up a new skill. We would be lying if we said that this wasn’t a little beneficial to the gifter as well as the giftee. Complete with a shaker, a strainer, a bar spoon, a muddler, a shot glass, a set of tongs, and a labelled pint glass with cocktail recipes, reviewers report that this set is everything needed to update a home bar.
15. The weighted blanket we all need this holiday season
Really, no one would blame you if you gifted yourself the Nixon Anti-Anxiety Weighted Blanket this season. We love a weighted blanket and we know that getting enough rest over the holidays is very important. Treat yourself to this affordable stress solution that comes in two sizes. Reviewers rave about the blanket’s calming warmth, and love the neutral gray color and soft fabric.
