2. Walford Home Pot and Tray Set

3. Comfify Key Holder

Editor's Notes

July 23, 2019:

At this time, we've kept a selection of items that would suit various stylistic sensibilities — but that are still usable. These include the Ozeri Nouveaux II Electric Wine Opener, the Comfify Key Holder, and a new addition, the Walford Home Pot and Tray Set. We like the latter because of its rustic styling as well as its usability, as it can accommodate everything from greenery to forks. We should note, though, that it's best for smaller herbs rather than big, bushy plants. As for other new additions, we have elected to replace the Simplehuman Dish Rack with the PremiumRacks Professional, since the former has been known to rust over time. We also like that the PremiumRacks is customizable, so the new owner can set it up to his or her liking. We've replaced the Belmint Bambüsi Cheese Board, as well, which seems to crack just a little too easily; we might suggest the Norpro Cheese Dome as a gift for the foodie, instead. It's attractive and easy to clean, pairing well with a fine cheese slicer.

Special Honors

Swoozie's State Bamboo Cutting Board If your friends are making a home in a new state, you can help them cultivate some pride with Swoozie's State Bamboo Cutting Board. Each is made from eco-friendly materials that will go the distance with proper care.

Scrabble Luxury Edition For making memories in a new residence, it's tough to beat game night, especially if it features this Scrabble Luxury Edition. The wood cabinet and faux leather scorebook give it an elegance that can be hard to find in a board game — with a posh price tag to match.

Tiffany & Co. Octagonal Vase A vase is the type of item that many don't think to buy for themselves, although they do come in handy sometimes, which could make this Tiffany & Co. Octagonal Vase quite a hit. It stands 8.5 inches tall and has classic styling that's reserved rather than gaudy.

4. PremiumRacks Professional

5. Norpro Cheese Dome

6. Prepworks by Progressive Ultimate

7. Apache Mills Masterpiece Home Stone Doormat

8. Kidde FireX i4618 Smoke Detector
