December 2020 Home Item Recommendations From Monique Valeris

As Good HousekeepingSenior Home Writer, I come across tons of home related products, good and bad. But there are some special discoveries that are just too good to stick around for me. That’s why I share my favorite home articles with you – our readers – here on our website every month in the hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.

Lately I’ve been craving moments of self-care and finding some simple accessories to make the different spaces in my home more inviting. Between last minute gift shopping and thinking about the many challenges that have arisen this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, I am ready to experience a new sense of comfort in my home. Here’s a look at the home products I have my eyes on right now, including a relaxing aromatherapy diffuser, chic tableware, and a personalized charcuterie platter.
