FOR THE HOME

Candle

We love a good dough bowl … but a dough bowl that’s also a hand-crafted candle? A double whammy! Available in dark, natural, or cream, this 60-ounce candle comes in a 21-inch-long dough bowl container and can be filled with any of Alabama’s Crave Co.’s incredible scents. There is also a mini version for $40 that would make a fabulous gift. Find yours for $70 at Crave Co.

Potpourri

This Victorian rose autumn potpourri is perfect for the welcome transition into fall and Halloween decor. Although the blend (a variety of rose petals, flower heads/buds, mini pinecones, mini acorns, and putka pods) is unscented, the autumn herbs provide a light fragrance. Separately packaged as a DIY kit, fill your favorite tabletop piece with this blend and stick it anywhere in your house that’s missing a pop of seasonal color. Find yours for $14.40 at Of Moth And Moon.

These Spongellé buffers are infused with exotic extracts, rich moisturizers, and gentle cleansers that will leave your skin youthful and glowing after just one bath. Pick out your favorite unique fragrance blend, lather up, and indulge your body and mind. Find yours for $14 at Cradle & Bee.

FOR THE GUYS

Socks

When Kevin Wohlman founded Southern Scholar in 2014, he finally created great-lookin’ men’s dress socks that actually stay up on their legs. We love the classic look of these heather blue micro-chevron socks. Shop individual pairs or give a sock subscription as a fun gift that shows up throughout the year. Every guy needs quality socks … and he probably needs to retire a few pairs, too. Find yours for $22 at Southern Scholar.

Slippers

You likely know Stubbs & Wootton’s fabulous motif and monogram slippers and loafers for men (and women!). They have a new selection of sans-embellishments shoes that go with everything. The football slippers are hand-crafted in Spain and a great way to kick off a new season. Find yours for $600 at Stubbs & Wootton.

FOR THE LITTLE ONES

Monogrammed PJs

We love the light blue gingham pattern of this classic pajama short set for little ones. Petite Plume sleepwear is made from high-quality yarn-dyed cotton and blended with inherently flame retardant fiber. The fabric just gets cozier after each wash. Send your little one to bed in comfort and style. Personalize yours from Biscuit Home for $48.

Puzzle

This is a jigsaw puzzle with a twist: No two shapes are the same, and every piece in the puzzle is shaped like a cat — except for one that’s a dog! Complete with charming illustrations and a sturdy box, 299 Cats (and a dog) will provide hours of fun for avid puzzlers, families, kids, and pet lovers.
