Unexpected Home Gifts That
Everyone Wants

In partnership with our friends at TUSHY

You got the invitation. Yes. You love the Smiths. They throw the best holiday parties. (Those maple and pecan puddings they served last year were insane.) Your outfit is set. Calendar cleared. You can’t wait.

But there’s just one thing: What in the world do you get them? The Smiths, in all their hosting glory, have everything. Every gadget, every clean candle, every bottle of carbonic Italian Sangiovese. Plus, you got them a crystal-infused decanter last year. How do you top that?

Here’s how: by getting them something they’d never, ever think to get themselves. That’s a tall order—so here’s your guide.

  3. Bottoms Up

    This bidet is an easy-to-install, easy-to-use tool that turns doing your business into a mini spa moment. (Anyone who has been to Japan—as the Smiths have–knows the glory of a light, cleansing stream.) Plus, it’s a responsible gift to give: Studies show bidets are beneficial for the booty—and this model reduces your toilet paper use by up to 80 percent.

    Trust us when we tell you these linen napkins can take any old Postmates delivery to the next level. Each one is embroidered with a cute hand-stitched motif: a takeout box, chopsticks, a fortune cookie, and a “be happy” fortune in lucky red.

  6. A+ Aperitif

  2. Tote Worthy

    For the chef or host, this tote is brilliant in its practicality. It’s designed to keep everything safe and organized on the trek home from the market.

  8. Woofin’ It

    Maybe the Smith you really want to spoil is the chihuahua, Pepper. She deserves to feel cozy in the softest, cushiest bed. (After all, Pepper’s the one you hang with most at the party.)
