Fall is officially upon us {although I swear it currently still feels like summer in the south}. Traditionally a time which always brings about warm memories of the upcoming holiday season, and inspires us to swap our sundresses for chunky sweaters. Along with providing the opportunity to actually enjoy outdoor activities that we all know and love. A visit to the pumpkin patch, a backyard fire pit, actually dining outdoors…and let’s not forget football season. Go Noles!

It’s the time of year that give me all the cozy feels. Which, inevitably, makes me want to bake for the first time all year haha. And let me tell you, that journey had already begun! From banana bread {granted maybe that was more TikTok/Covid quarantine induced} to these incredible vegan, gluten free muffins I’ve now made twice. Fall just does it for me.

In addition to the baking and porch sprucing, I can’t help but get into the spirit of gifting. The holidays are right around the corner, and although I am 100% a year-round shopper for Christmas gifts {love picking up personal tid bits here and there when we travel or I spot something special that reminds me of a family member}, I really ramp up around fall. So wanted to put together some tasteful house warming gift ideas. Which are also all well suited for hostess or entertainer in your life.

House Warming Gift Ideas

I have absolutely fallen in love with etuHome offers a beautiful selection of wooden boards in a variety of sizes and colors. Not only are these practical {hello charcuterie boards galore}, they can also serve as kitchen decor. Prop it up behind your oven or to the side or the stove in front of a potted plant and seasonings – instant added warmth to the space!

A fellow entertainer after my own heart! I had the pleasure of meeting the Author, Courtney, of The Southern Entertainer’s Cookbook: Heirloom Recipes for Modern Gatherings on a brand trip to Nashville, and have been a fan ever since! Her newly released book is a perfect gift for any home owner or cooking lover. image credit @pizzazzerie

Give the gift of fragrance! Our sense of smell is the strongest sense for triggering memories. There’s nothing more memorable than those first few nights spent in a new home, or gathering around the table for a holiday gathering. Gifting someone a lovely candle like Yankee Candle’s new 3-wick fall fragrances, or straight to Christmas vibes with your favorite Fraser Fir scent – your friend will thank you!

Home linens are always a good idea. Whether you opt for a beautiful set of everyday napkins, or a monogrammed tea towel – it’s a practical, yet thoughtful item we all could use a little more of!
