2022 Gift Ideas for Homes and Hobbies
This is my official kick-off to the gift guide season. I’m starting with gifts for the home and gifts for hobbies. I guess technically, I already posted gifts for your book club, but that was so niche that it took no time at all. So here it is! At least 48 gift ideas for the home and the hobbies.
Last year I was a bit late with my gift guides. But this year, my weddings ended in early November, and I made sure to get to work on these gift ideas. Because I do love to give gifts, so I love to write these gift guides in the hopes that it helps others. All of these items will be found on Etsy. I love shopping on Etsy because it is often a small business making things by hand, and I am here for that.
Gifts for Outdoorsy Hosts
These gifts are for folks who have their friends and family over all the time and often entertain them outside.
Shop this Outdoorsy gift: Vertical Fire Pit Grate. My husband firmly believes in the “teepee” style of starting a fire, and I’ve been fully indoctrinated.
Shop this Outdoorsy gift: Hemisphere Fire pit
Shop this Outdoorsy gift: Modern Steel fire pit. The design of this fire pit container is so dope.
Shop this Outdoorsy gift: Custom Fire pokers. I love s’mores so much, and there is nothing worse than not being able to find a tree branch or wire hanger at the moment when the fire pit is going.
Shop this Outdoorsy gift: Custom Wood Cooler
Shop this Outdoorsy Gift: Balcony Bar for those with smaller areas where they host guests!
Shop this Outdoorsy Gift: Portable Side Table – I’ve already bought 2 of these for friends who have a great little pasture in Oregon where they grill over a fire pit and host their friends. I love the bottle opener on the leg – that is a thoughtful detail.
Shop many Outdoorsy gifts at this link: Classic Yard Games – I’ve got your Jenga, your Checkers, your Corn Hole, and more!!
Shop this Outdoorsy gift: Extra Large Charcuterie Buffet Board – I dare you to buy this for *that* friend. (And yes, the seller has smaller ones available, so click on through.)

How about starting needle felting as a new hobby? I’m told that Felted Sky is the best place to start for supplies and kits on Etsy.
Maybe needle felting isn’t the thing, but how about embroidery? Shop this beginner embroidery kit, below.
Neither embroidery nor needle felting the right cup of tea? How about crochet, then? I’m obsessed with the below bag, shop it’s pattern here.
Need more than just a crochet pattern? How about a whole beginners kit to make the below gorgeous blanket!
