Whether your significant other spends hours binge-watching interior design shows or simply enjoys decorating (and redecorating) their home, home decor items make excellent gifts. Giving your partner something decorative for their home is also a great option for those who are design-challenged.

You need to choose the right gift when you’re shopping for someone special, though. Let’s face it: A random fake plant from the clearance bin probably won’t earn you any brownie points! Fortunately, there are lots of better options from which to choose.

You could go all out and help them get a good night’s sleep with a Nectar mattress, or you could do something much smaller like buying a delicious-smelling candle in their favorite fragrance. If you are searching for the perfect present for your partner, you are in the right place. Keep reading to discover a few of the best home decor gifts for your partner.

1. A New Bed and Mattress

Does your partner complain that they spend hours tossing and turning each night because they can’t get comfortable on their old, lumpy mattress? Or, if you live together, do you both have trouble getting a decent night’s sleep? If so, a new bed and mattress is the ultimate home decor gift.

According to the Sleep Foundation, mattresses should be replaced roughly every seven to ten years. Keep in mind, though, that poor-quality ones might wear out significantly faster, and high-quality ones could last longer. Either way, if your partner’s bed shows signs of wear or you’re waking up less refreshed than you used to, it’s probably time to invest in a new one.

If you are unsure what to pick, check out some adjustable beds. They definitely aren’t just for seniors and hospitals anymore! Today’s adjustable beds offer exceptional comfort, and some models even automatically adjust themselves when they detect snoring. If you nor your partner have ever slept in a premium adjustable bed, you’re likely missing out on the best night’s sleep in your life.

2. Sleep Accessories

Don’t despair if making a major purchase isn’t in your budget right now. Help your partner decorate their bedroom and rest better with sleep accessories. What are sleep accessories? We’re glad you asked! Sound machines that produce white, pink or brown noise, nature sounds and/or gentle music are the most well-known sleep accessory, but there are others too.

Give the special person in your life some new pajamas and a plush bathrobe to cuddle up in before bed. Candles and essentials are awesome bedroom accessories too. In addition to making the bedroom smell great, certain fragrances can make it easier to fall asleep faster and stay asleep all night long. Plus, few things are more soothing than enjoying the warm glow of a candle before trying to get some shut-eye.

3. Canvas Print or Painting

Canvas prints and paintings are perfect for sprucing up bare walls, and there are literally millions of options from which to choose. You could buy your partner a painting to add some color and texture to the room or, if you are artistic, you could even make them a beautiful painting that they’ll be proud to show off to everyone who visits.

If you are looking for something a bit more personal, have a photograph printed on canvas. It could be a much-loved picture of the two of you together, a snapshot from a recent vacation, a picture of their kids or pet or any other image that holds meaning for your significant other. Just be prepared to see some happy tears when you present this special photo gift.

4. Cozy and Stylish Blankets

When you are unsure what to give someone, you can never go wrong with a cozy blanket. In addition to keeping your partner nice and toasty, a blanket can add a touch of style and a pop of color to their living room or bedroom. Draping one over a sofa is also a good way to hide stains and spruce up older furniture.

Fleece blankets in aesthetically pleasing colors and designs are a good choice. If you want to spoil your significant other a bit, though, consider giving them a luxurious cashmere blanket instead.

5. Mirrors

You might not think of them as such, but mirrors make great home decor items. Sure, you use them when you’re getting ready in the morning, but they can do so much more. Carefully placed mirrors immediately make even the smallest spaces look larger. You can even use them to bring more light into a room and reflect it into poorly illuminated areas. Large, ornate mirrors make the best gifts, but even a smaller one can change up the entire look and feel of a room.

Tip: Large mirrors and those with fancy frames can be pretty pricey. If you’re looking for a deal, check out thrift shops and discount stores like Ross and T.J. Maxx. You never know what you might find. Remember, you can always paint or refinish the frame if it’s in rough condition or it’s a color your partner doesn’t like.

Closing Thoughts

When you want to give your partner a gift that’s a bit outside the box, home decor items are never a bad choice. Whether you live together or they have their own place, they’ll think of you every time they see or use their gift. The ideas above are just a few of the countless options. Start shopping today, and you’ll surely find a gift your significant other will love.
