The decorous domicile

Nordstrom’s home department isn’t large, it’s true, but if you’ve got new homeowners on your list, this place is a must. All its carefully selected items share a sweet, personal—dare we say hip?—touch that says I put a lot of time and thought into this gift, instead of every item at Nordstrom is adorable so I picked up your present in two minutes.  

Of late, Nordstrom has teamed up with Etsy to offer a whole line of crafty home products, including some almost too cute gifts for the kitchen.
CircaCeramics Spoon Rest ($25) and Nesting Bowls ($65)

Weapon? Or graceful acacia bowl for keeping your bananas pristinely bruise-free? You be the judge.
Nambé “Fruit Tree” Bowl ($125)

Available in six colors, these are—wait for it—like buttah.
Nordstrom at Home Butter Knit Throws ($68)

The scent of Bamboo Teak pleases without overpowering.
Archipelago Botanicals Signature Soy Wax Candles ($24)

Easy as 1-2-3: get fancy notecards; order your custom stamp online; get to thanking folks for all those housewarming gifts in no time.
Personalized Stamp & Notecard Set ($60)
