The holidays are coming! And I’m pretty excited about it. Are you a “prepare-early-for-the-holidays” person? Or are you a “throw-everything-together-at-the-last-minute” type of household? I am somewhere in between. I love to freshen up our rooms pretty early and make our home feel really cozy for the holidays. However, I tweak everything right up until Christmas day. The whole process is fun for me. Today, I am sharing 9 items that you may need to freshen up your home for the holidays. All of these items would be excellent gift ideas as well.
If you need to replace your mismatched dinnerware set for the upcoming holidays, I HIGHLY recommend replacing them with these. Since they are neutral, they will match anyone’s decor. The metallic edge makes them festive enough for the holidays and they are also great for every day dishes. They have a nice weight but they aren’t too heavy. These would make a great gift idea for an upcoming wedding, a new homeowner, or simply someone who would really enjoy a new set of dishes. The price is phenomenal, too.
I will never forget the first set of matching dishes that I bought. I was probably 25-ish and had been using pieces that I had found at auctions for a few dollars. And I was, also, using things that people gave me… which was completely appreciated. But, I’m telling you, it was a pretty big deal when I bought my very first set of dishes around the holidays. They were neutral-colored and nothing really fancy. But, I felt fancy. And I appreciated those dishes for years and years to come.
If you are looking for something very versatile to add to your decor, these decorative vases are perfect. Add a little water, and you can use them for fresh cut winter greens. And then store them on a shelf within your decor when not in use. I love using them as candlesticks as you see here. They are excellent quality vases that will freshen up your home for the holidays. And they can be used for years to come.
This best selling cotton pouf will freshen up any space and add a lot of texture. The neutral color will go with any type of decor, too. Add it to your living room or bedroom to prop up your feet after you get done with your holiday festivities. Oh… and the price on this pouf cannot be beat. This is another great gift idea!
I love me a good artificial ficus tree, and this is a great one. Artificial trees are perfect to tuck in corners that look bare. And, they are great to bring life back into your decor after the tree is down. You can also add twinkle lights to these and make them festive for the holidays. This one is at a great prices and the perfect size, too.
I found all of these items at The Home Depot, which I find pretty spectacular. A lot of people think of The Home Depot as a place to purchase only DIY or construction items. But, they have a huge assortment of home items as well, including home decor, kitchen and tableware, bedding and bath, you name it. If you are looking for something for your home, they have it.
Keep scrolling for several more items that would be great to freshen up your home for the holidays from The Home Depot. As you can see, I chose 9 items that would be perfect for AFTER the holidays as well. And, again, they would all make great gift ideas.
