'Tis the season for holiday gifting. We've had tabs open since October keeping an eye on what we're purchasing for the home décor lovers in our lives, and our choices for gifting just got easier.
Beloved actress, comedian, and screenwriter Mindy Kaling is teaming up with Amazon Handmade to curate the ultimate holiday gifting collection, with home décor galore all made by artisans and small businesses as well as a handful of items that Mindy co-designed herself. How cool is that?
Kaling partnered with 6 different makers who sell their goods through Amazon Handmade all specializing in different mediums, from candle pouring to woodworking. Her collection embodies some of her favorite things, and because of her love for décor and entertaining, she helped co-design some amazing products—like this adorable Christmas Tree Cheese Board Set with Amazon Handmade maker, Specialty Wood Designs.
"I'm super passionate about supporting small businesses, so I'm very excited for you to shop our unique items and help these brands grow," Kaling shares on Amazon.

After inspecting her incredible list of gift options, we couldn't help but save a few for ourselves and share them with you. And because these are all on Amazon, you know what that means—quick shipping and great prices. Here are our top picks from Kaling's curated collection
Flax Linen Napkins
This is a gift so good, we might just gift it to ourselves. Mindy co-designed these gorgeous linen napkins with Thing Stories, and they are just what you need to elevate any holiday tablescape. This set, along with its matching table runner and placements, is neutral enough to even use all year round.
Warm and Cozy Candle
Candles may seem like a cliché gift, but we largely disagree. We would be happy to be gifted a delightfully-scented, handmade candle like this one from Sweet Water Decor. With notes of orange, cinnamon, and clove, it's the perfect spicy candle for the winter and holiday season.
The Beehive Vase
This adorable vase by HoneycombStudio is unlike any other we've seen. It's handmade from porcelain with a creamy glaze over top with a clay bottom and gold detailing. The best part is when you order one, you can be sure it's one of a kind. As each are handmade, no two vases are exactly alike. This is the perfect, thoughtful gift for any flower or plant lover in your life.
Maple Hand Turned Bowl
We're already envisioning this rustic, wooden bowl by Specialty Wood Designs in our spaces. How cute would this look perched atop a coffee table, sitting pretty in your built-in shelves, or holding some fruit on a kitchen island? The bowl is handmade from tiger ambrosia maple, and it is sure to last for years to come.
Linen Bath Towel
We're suckers for luxury bath items here on MyDomaine. We're big believers that every bath or shower should feel utterly spa-like, and this gorgeous linen towel by Thing Stories is sure to get you there. Investing in quality bath products is completely worthwhile, and this towel boasts an ultra-absorbing material that is lightweight and long-lasting. We'll take 2, please.
Leather Valet Tray
Get your desk or entryway into tip-top shape with a gorgeous, leather organizer like this one. As made by Northwind Supply, it serves as the perfect catch-all for your keys, glasses, and everything in between.
White and Gold Ceramic Cake Stand
Our kitchens all deserve to be a bit more elevated, and this cake stand byHoneycombStudio will do just the trick. Display your holiday desserts on this porcelain cake stand for sophisticated serving, or gift it to the avid baker in your life so they can display their best-baked creations.
