33 Eclectic Stay at Home Finds & Gift Ideas
Lovely Laser Cut Wood Puzzle
I’m not one for puzzles, but everyone else in my family is. This sweet and easy wooden Carl Larsson example is about all I have the patience for…isn’t it beautiful?
This gives you an idea of the pieces:
In fact, if you are a fan of Larsson’s art, here is a wonderful way to have an instant collection of prints to frame for a very low price.
Prime Time for Prime!
If you already have an Amazon Prime Membership, you may know how many amazing benefits there are to reap. But keep reading in case there is something new!
Prime is certainly not just about fast and free shipping anymore.
Membership gives us access to thousands of movies (Troop Zero, The Farewell, Bumblebee), TV shows (Hunters, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Making the Cut, Chicago PD, House, Parks and Recreation), new music and new books.
(BTW, here are the books Amazon thinks I may enjoy…books by Teilhard and Annie Dillard? Yes, please.)
Love to Read But Have Tired Eyes?
Bidet That Installs in 10 Minutes
If you have experienced toilet paper hoarding in your neck of the woods, then maybe this will be especially helpful. TUSHY is a delightful source (tap this next image and visit their happy happy site!) of clean booty things.
Contemporary Language Bible
Even though I grew up on it, there was a season of my life where I only cracked open my bible if I couldn’t sleep. It was years before I truly appreciated it. Do you like this translation of it?
Gorgeous Linen Loungewear
Because linen. And lounging.
Produce Delivered to Your Door
I feel extremely grateful and understand my privilege in being able to shelter in place comfortably. There are only slight inconveniences such as not being able to visit the grocery store as often as I typically do for fresh produce (a major part of my restricted diet).
Services like Daily Harvest bring the goodness to you.
Here’s How Simple Smoothie Making Can Be
A Book if You’re Struggling
This is my all-time favorite story, and I love sharing it with others. The Little Tern is the enchanting story of a bird who one day discovers he has lost the ability to fly. Beautifully illustrated by Lisa Mann Dirkes, this modern fable by Brooke Newman points to finding hope in disappointing or frustrating circumstances.
DIY With Clay
If it has been some time since you have worked with clay, maybe this quieter chapter is just right for re-visiting the medium. Ever tried the air dry variety?
What will you make?
Here’s an idea:
Even though they are not my idea of relaxing, these look fabulous!!!
Possibly the BEST Gift Idea (and you may be surprised at the low price despite the orange box!)
Did I just stumble upon the perfect Mother’s Day, Birthday, or Holiday gift? That orange box!
Sloth Stress Ball
I think we all know someone who would appreciate one of these!
Try On Lenses at Home
The Warby Parker Home-Try-On program is an amazing way for anyone to choose 5 pairs of glasses (or sunglasses) to try on at home for free! Then you have 5 days to take the frames for a spin before sending them back. Readers can also take a style quiz to find their perfect pair based on their face shape, color/style preferences, and more!
If you’re tethered to your screens and devices, a blue light filtering option for lenses may help. They filter more blue light than standard polycarbonate or high-index options.
Add them to any frame, with or without a prescription, for $50.
Flexible Stand for Your Phone
I need this for a variety of reasons, and just a reminder to frequently disinfect your phone!
Paint Color Fan Deck
There is a lot of home improvement going on across the country, and if you’re like me, you have painting to do.
This deck can be helpful for choosing paint colors or paint samples when you want to minimize your time at the paint store.
Try New Healthy Recipes
I love Sarah Britton’s blog (her method and recipe inspired my go-to, no-flour, no-knead bread!)
Play With Makeup
Whether you are working from home and busy with Zoom conferences, FaceTime sessions, and virtual meetings or simply want to look your best, here are some fresh finds I discovered.
In February, while on vacation in Hawaii, I consulted with a makeup artist who directed me to this for faking a glow:
I love it because it gives me that Korean lovely glass-skin look when I want it but doesn’t leave me looking like a disco ball.
Here’s another find from that trip…a lip and cheek tint that is divine and natural. I use it everyday!
Here’s the mascara from MILK that I have been using as well.
Makeup sticks are still really hot, and some of them can be pricey. This one is inexpensive and looks promising…
Soap from France
Bamboo Soap Dish
I don’t know about you, but my energy has been so low lately. When I can get my protein from plants, it’s a good thing.
Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrushes
A friend turned me on to this wonderful company, and these are the softgels I am enjoying. Is CBD helping you and yours?
Daily Tools of the Trade
Good brushes for scrubbing dishes and pans are such a help, and especially now with more dishes to do daily.
If You’re Missing the Salon
Since salons have been shut down, here’s a sweet little indulgence I’d like to try. It can be used for shampooing hair or just as a massager on dry hair.
If you have ever experienced a great dermaplane session, you know how wonderful it is to say goodbye to the fuzzy wuzzies and hello to a smoother base for luscious skin care and makeup.
While I haven’t tried to do my own, there are inexpensive tools for the task!
My favorite bath mat here at home has a border of linen, but this handmade one is ALL linen.
Everybody has their favorite style of ’em, and my current fav is all things boybrief-y! I love under things from Aerie, and these are in my cart:
Lounge-wear is very much a comfort these days, and I love me some French terry, so these are calling my name.
Sunwashed & Soooo Comfy Cozy
Have you visited AE or Aerie lately? I love AE jeans and jeggings, but there is much more beyond denim. If you visit the site, you may notice the diversity in models – some have Down Syndrome, some are curvy, and some use wheelchairs. Isn’t it wonderful?
I just love their sunwashed items which remind me of the 90s.
