2. A copper string of lights to shed some ethereal light on most anything.

USB-powered string made of waterproof, bendable copper wire and LED lights.

Promising review: "These little copper lights are beautiful and bright at night. I used one strand in a decorative lantern and the other strand in an outdoor glass globe that I move indoors for the winter." —KLA

Get a 33-foot string from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in two lengths).


4. A glow-in-the-dark clock as a standout on any gallery wall.

6. A luxurious candle in a lovely vessel that'll rise from the ashes as a storage accessory once all the wonderfully scented wax is gone.

TBH, Diptyque candles are sooo fragrant that you probably won't even need to light it for a while.

Get it from Nordstrom for $35 (also available in a holiday trio).


12. A serving bowl and dip dish duo for jar queso and a bag of tortilla chips, because like Madge said in "Human Nature," I'm not sorry.


18. A pair of bow earrings to help you hold on to your air pods!!!


21. A set of gold-handled utensils may help enforce that New Year's resolution you're totally going to make again about cooking more.

Made of dishwasher-safe stainless steel with brass plating. Includes serving spoon, slotted spoon, whisk, ladle, slotted turner, and turner.

Get them from Crate & Barrel for $49.95.


24. A Tarte highlighting palette you'll want to casually leave laying out all the time for others to gaze upon.


28. A desktop calendar to *also* serve as an objet d'art.


33. An activity baby chair you'll be sad to put away once your baby has outgrown it.

Includes a removable tray with squeak, crinkle, mirror, and rattle features to help stimulate the baby's senses. Has a harness to keep baby in place.

Get it from Land of Nod for $129.


40. A stacked marble lamp with some real gravitas that can match all kinds of decor schemes. (I know.)

I own this lamp and am *obsessed* with it! Though it's heavy, it isn't top heavy, so it's been fine on this nightstand I use as a side table in my living room.

Get it from CB2 for $149.
