Unique Night Lights
A few really nice night lights are great for the safety factor, as well as looking nice. My friend who has a lot of overnight guests thinks night lights are especially good for visitors who aren’t familiar with your home. There are so many interesting styles of night lights, so here are a few that might fit the personality or style of home for your special lady.
Oprah’s Favorite Things
There’s something for everyone for any gift-giving occasion. Below are a few of my favorites that are still under $50. Browse all of Oprah’s favorite things.

Unique lighting is really fun to add special touches to all rooms in the house. Battery operated and electric lighting avoid the safety risk associated with burning candles. Here are a few ideas that come with excellent customer review ratings, and I’d love in my home:
Food is always a good choice….a girl has to eat! Gift an assorted nut tray or maybe a sweet treat.
Wooden Closet Hangers: an Inexpensive Luxury
- Keep clothes in nice shape.
- Look stylish in entryway closet to hang visitors’ coats.
- Makes a closet look very organized and put together.
- Quality, sturdy wood will last forever.
- Wooden hangers are great for hanging damp clothes to let them air dry.
At less than $1 a piece, these AmazonBasics Wood Hangers beat the heck out of the cheap plastic hangers or relics from the dry cleaners.
I’ve purchased 2 sets and I’ll keep ordering more until all the plastic hangers are gone from my closet. Some wood hangers that come with a men’s suit coat have such a big contour shape and take up a lot of room. These hangers are a perfect size because although they’re thick wood hangers, they don’t take up too much room in the closet.
Wooden hangers are an especially perfect gift for people of all ages who like little luxuries. As a side note, these wooden hangers are also great if you’re looking for hangers to personalize for a bridal party.
Aromatherapy with Essential Oils
Essential oils smell great, and each type of oil offers different health benefits. I have used the NOW brand and Radha brands and recommend them both. Young Living is also an excellent name brand.
How to Use Essential Oils
- Applied directly to skin: Similar to perfume, only all-natural and you’ll get added health benefits.
- Added to massage oil
- Inhaled: Place a few drops in a bowl of hot water and place a towel over your head an inhale deeply. Or, place a few drops in a hot, wet wash cloth and place over your face. (Think spa!)
- Cleaning Solutions: Essential oils help make your house smell good and fight germs. There are lots of recipes for solutions, many using just water. Popular oils to use for cleaning are: lemon, orange, tea tree, cinnamon leaf, eucalyptus, pine and peppermint.
- In a diffuser (read about diffusers below)
Because there are so many essential oils, an essential oil sampler gift set is a great way to get introduced to lots of different oils. The Radha Beauty 8-piece set includes lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus, lemongrass, orange, peppermint, frankincense and rosemary. The Radha Beauty 18-piece set includes lavender, tea tree, peppermint, lemongrass, orange, eucalyptus, rosemary, frankincense, lemon, bergamot, ylang ylang, patchouli, geranium, pink grapefruit, cinnamon, clary sage, oregano, and clove.
To go along with the oils, an essential oil diffuser can help your special someone reap all the benefits of the oils. Essential oil diffusers are easy to use, help a home smell aesthetically good, and provide many health benefits such as: improves breathing, strengthens the immune system, and helps to lift your mood and relieve stress.
Suggested Essential Oil Diffusers Based on Customer Reviews (and my personal choice)
- The URPOWER 100ml oil diffuser has over 20,000 Amazon customer reviews with an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars. It’s fairly small but runs up to 6 hours. It’s perfect for small bedrooms, hotel rooms and office spaces. I purchased this diffuser because I like to switch oils often, so I wanted the smaller size. It’s a inexpensive yet quality.
- The URPOWER 500ml oil diffuser has almost 8,000 Amazon customer reviews also with an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars. It can run 10 hours per use.
- The XPLUS 300ml Aroma Diffuser only has 90 Amazon customer reviews, but the average rating is 5 out of 5 stars!
Himalayan Salt Lamps
Himalayan salt lamps add the most beautiful, decorative lighting to a home. The lighting creates a warm, relaxing, and comforting atmosphere in any room. Himalayan salt lamps are also said to improve air quality and boost mood and energy levels due to the negative ions they emit.
I have a few Himalayan salt lamps and candle holders and wrote a whole post about why I have so many. (Read Himalayan Salt Lamps: Why I Love Mine.) Amazon has the best prices I’ve found for Himalayan salt lamps and candle holders. Here are my top picks:
