It’s that time of year again — time to treat your loved ones (or yourself!) to a gift that can be enjoyed year-round. If you’re looking for home items that can make everyday tasks feel elevated, your search ends here. Our consultants rounded up three of their favorite items that are practical yet indulgent — ideal for any holiday wish list.


Touchless faucets make cooking and cleanup both easier and more hygienic. With a touchless option, you can turn your faucet on and off with a simple wave of a hand. And enjoy a cleaner environment as touching your faucet becomes obsolete.

If you’re looking for something a bit more technically advanced, consider a smart faucet with voice-activated technology. Turn your faucet on and off and dispense measured amounts of water with your spoken command.


It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but winter in Connecticut can be harsh and cold. While a hot shower offers a brief respite, winter’s chill lurks just beyond the curtain. And while leaving the warmth of the shower is dreadful, there is nothing worse than reaching for a cold, wet towel.

Instead, transition out of the shower in comfort with a towel warmer. Not only does it warm your towel and linens, the secondary heat source provides extra warmth while reducing excess moisture in your bathroom. It’s a small addition that makes a big, luxurious difference.


A heated toilet seat is an unexpected pleasure that you never knew you needed. More than just a warm and welcoming place to sit, a heated toilet seat comes with several features designed to maximize your comfort. Benefits include: Heat Therapy – Heat relaxes the muscles, reducing aches, pains and discomfort, especially in cold weather.

-Added Luxury – Most models come with several features including a massage function, LED lighting, warm air dry, and a hot water bidet.
-Hygiene – A bidet gently washes the skin while offering a superior way of cleaning and better personal hygiene.
-Energy efficient and easy to install, you (and your tushy) deserve the luxury of a heated toilet seat.
