With the holidays coming up, it’s no secret that the home enthusiasts in our lives can be tricky to shop for. While we think we’ve discovered the perfect gift that our friend or family member will undoubtedly love, we might be left wondering: What if this person secretly hates their gift? What if it doesn’t match their decor? And even worse: What if our gift is so bad that it ends up tucked away in a closet, only to be regifted next year?

We’ve all been there. We’ve endlessly searched the internet for that one show-stopping gift for our home-obsessed friend, neatly packed it in gorgeous wrapping paper topped with a big colorful bow only to find out that our present wasn’t so fabulous after all.

To help you find a gift that’s actually great (and not just to you), Bustle teamed up with Walmart to assemble a list of 10 home appliances and decor products that any home fan can be excited about. Whether you’re shopping for someone who is redecorating during quarantine, throwing endless virtual happy hours, or simply takes pride in maintaining an Instagram-ready home, our collection is ready to help you narrow down the perfect holiday gift for your loved one.

It comes in coral, blue, and white, and it’s the cutest mini fridge you’ll ever find. Your skincare-obsessed friend needs this portable personal chill zone to keep all of their face creams, masks, and serums cold. Just pop it on the counter, plug it in, and voila!

It’ll look equally gorgeous on a bookshelf, TV stand, or coffee table. Pair it with a few candles for an extra cozy vibe — Walmart has some beautiful options.

We are all embracing our inner chef as we spend more time at home, which makes food and cooking gifts the hit of the season. For the person in your life who is always whipping up the latest trending smoothies and seasonal soups, this blender is an absolute must.

Speaking of ideal food and cooking gifts, there’s nothing like a cup of piping hot coffee in the morning — and it’s even better when it’s convenient and fast.

For those who love movie and TV marathons, Drew Barrymore Flower Home’s velvet decorative throw pillow will make lounging on the couch that much more comfy.
