Do you remember where you were when you realized it was suddenly very cool for everything to be gold? I was standing in the familiar, sacred place that is the home goods aisle of Target when it first hit me. Suddenly, everywhere I looked, there was gold. That lamp? Gold. That tape dispenser that looks like a pug? Gold. Those light-up letters that people always rearrange on the shelves to spell things like "POOP" and "LOLZ"? Gold, gold, gold, gold. I was a little alarmed by the shininess of it all at first, but that feeling passed quickly as it was replaced by another. That new sensation that was growing inside me was the realization of something that I felt like I should have known about myself forever: everything I own should be gold, too. And so, I bought the gold letters. The pug. A coffee table. A phone case. A spatula. A weird piece of glittery wall art that said something nonsensical like, "Live, Laugh, Coffee, Mermaid." I was invested.
And it seemed like just as soon as I caught on to the gold obsession, the rest of the world had, too. Internet banner ads for gold mirrors and side tables followed me around the web. The universe (and Instagram, for that matter) had discovered that pretty much everything comes in gold, and we were all running with it. Through the past three or four years, this love of gold has stuck around. Sure, marble gave gold a good run for its money for a while there, but once we all learned that we could combine gold and marble, that battle was moot. And thus a whole new group of gold products was born (I bought all of those, too). Whether you're into gold, gold with marble, or gold's newest popular variation, rose gold, there is something for you at Target. Here are 25 gold and gold-adjacent items you definitely will not be able to resist buying.
