Welcome to the Hunker Holiday Gift Guide. From joyful decor picks to gifts that give back, these items are sure to delight everyone on your list.

Even if you're not into the cottagecore trend that completely took over in 2020, you probably have a friend (or multiple friends) who are. And we get the appeal. Cottagecore celebrates a return to nature and the simpler things — baking loaves of sourdough, foraging for natural home decor instead of buying it, and even just spending nights at home with a warm cup of tea. Accordingly, gifts for the idyllic, nature-lover in your life should have a sense of simple beauty. Here are some of our favorite cottagecore holiday gifts for the season, but they'll work as sweet tokens for your loved ones all year long.

2. Swahili Imports Petite Bolga Lace Basket, $40

And they'll absolutely need a little basket for all the things they forage. This particular one from Swahili Imports is handwoven in Ghana, super durable, and Fair Trade certified. Plus, it can double as the perfect tote for trips to the market.
