This wireless charging speaker table
Most design-minded types would never dream of putting yet another mismatched Bluetooth speaker out in their home.

It even features a tabletop wireless charging station for your devices!
These hanging wall planters
One of the best things about succulents is that they can bring a pop of life to corners of the house where traditional houseplants usually can't survive. These handsome hanging wall planters by Umbra are a great way to liven up hallways, bedrooms, or stairwells with tiny pops of color. And if your giftee is less keen on adding greenery to their home, they also make for great makeup storage in the bathroom or pen holders in the office!
