Confession time. We’re home décor junkies. HGTV is on a loop on our TVs and we love imagining new projects we can do around the house. Whether it’s a rug to tie a room together, holiday decorations to celebrate the season or incense to spread a peaceful aroma — we are obsessed with finding things for our humble abodes. Here’s a list of our top 10 home & décor gifts made by women-owned businesses.

1. CAMBRIA WASHABLE RUG by JENEVA BELL at RUGGABLE

We’re dog people and we can’t tell you how many rugs have been destroyed by long nails or tiny accidents. Honestly we stopped buying them altogether. Until Ruggable. Washable rugs? Get out! This Cambria Ruby Washable Area Rug features classically inspired pattern work presented in beautifully rendered hues of ruby red, blood orange, beige and brown. It is stain and water resistant and designed to fit in home washing machines.

2. NUTCRACKER COASTER SET by ANNA BOND at RIFLE PAPER CO.

We have a special place in our hearts for all things Nutcracker because we grew up in Boston and saw the Boston Ballet’s holiday production every year as young girls. So, when we saw this whimsical Coaster Set, we knew we had to include it on the list. The art whisks you away to the land of magicians, mouse kings, toy soldiers and sugar plum fairies. Handmade in Sweden from lightweight, FSC sourced birchwood, these coasters will protect your surfaces and add a festive touch to your coffee table.
