19 Practical Home Items That Make Your Life Easier

When I started thinking about what kind of holiday gifts people actually want to receive after this crazy year, one word came to mind: practical. Okay, well, a few more words also popped into my brain, including helpful, time-saving, stress-reducing, and space-saving. And that’s how I ended up making this list of all the various home items that fall into these categories.

One of the items I included is actually my newest purchase: a robot vacuum. (Yes, I passed up the Net-a-Porter sale in favor of a home sale—does that mean I’m officially an adult?) It’s the kind of purchase that saves you precious time and checks something off your to-do list with little to no effort. Now that’s my kind of buy. Scroll down to shop some of my favorite practical home items.
