2. A luxe faux-fur throw blanket your guests will love cuddling with so much, it'll make your cat jealous.
3. A macramé photo display to show off photos of your family and friends (they'll be so flattered when they visit and see they've made the cut!).
4. A truly *genius* sugar cookie candle that'll make everyone nostalgic for those blue tins that always seemed to be hidden away in the closet and contained pretty much everything but cookies — hence why this candle says Mentiras, or Lies, on it!
5. A portable fireplace for those of us who don't have Roy family levels of wealth to install full-size ones in every room. Not only does it provide extra warmth, it'll also look cool on your coffee table *AND* can be used for indoor marshmallow roasting. S'mores party in February, anyone?
6. A sleek serving tray that looks way more expensive than it is, but will make your guests feel like they're at a 5-star resort when you use it to serve them breakfast in bed.
7. A set of "Be Our Guest" hand towels, because even your bathroom should feel welcoming. Just remind your visitors that the West Wing is forbidden.
8. A mini bar cart to impress your friends with all of the natural wines you became an "expert" on after, like, one tasting.
10. An (inter)stellar star-shaped succulent planter to add a little green to your home, even if gardening is your nemesis. If you're able to show you can care for plants — even low maintenance ones — you might even be able to convince your family that you're a responsible adult the next time they stay over.
11. Or, an artificial ficus so you can rid yourself of plant responsibilities altogether. After all, what better way to make your space feel more friendly than with a big ole tree (fake or otherwise)?
13. A assortment of sparkling mixers to have on hand juuust in case your guests decide they want to stay for a nightcap. Use them to mix up a cocktail or enjoy on their own!
14. A giant beanbag sofa chair that you — and anyone else who enters your home — will want to sink into and never leave.
15. A felt letterboard so you can share customized messages with friends and loved ones upon their arrival.
16. A sunrise-simulating alarm clock to help anyone who spends the night wake up on the right side of the bed.
18. A micro-fleece weighted blanket that'll wrap around you like a hug and serve as a piece of decor in its own right.
19. A botanically scented room spray you'll want to spritz in every room, on every piece of bedding, and basically every square inch of your home.
23. A handmade LED bread night-light because nothing says, "This is a safe space" like softly illuminated carbs.
25. A lovely macramé plant hanger to help breathe some life into your home, even if you don't have much floor space. If you're looking for a surefire way to get guests to compliment you on a piece of decor, this is it.
26. Some festive speckled wallpaper that's easy to remove if you're someone who likes to change things up every so often.
27. An organic soy wax cube bubble candle you won't want to light because it's so pretty (but you should, because it'll make your space smell like flowers, coconuts, and peaches).
28. A strand of fairy string lights, because your living space deserves a soft, cozy glow all year-round.
29. A ceramic oil diffuser that'll make your home smell so good, everyone might just need a moment to stop what they're doing and inhale.
32. A Sonos speaker that'll fill your home with streaming music, podcasts, audiobooks, and practically anything else you'd like to create a heightened auditory experience.
