6 Helpful Christmas Gifts that Will Last a Lifetime

With Christmas fast approaching, you may already be thinking about which gifts to give to your loved ones. Finding a meaningful gift may seem daunting, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Let the act of gift-giving be enjoyable, but most importantly, meaningful. Besides, there’s certainly no reason to have to break the bank. A useful, affordable gift that’s also elegant and timeless will prove significant to whoever receives it. 

Here, we’re sharing a budget-friendly, useful gift guide for Christmas, which may be helpful for any college student embarking on a holiday shopping journey and looking to gift a stunning piece to someone special. Any of the following gift ideas can be purchased through our site and will elevate the home decor in anyone’s space.

Concrete Sponge + Soap Tray

Offered in gray, dark gray, and off-white, this concrete tray features a stylish pyramid design, keeping a kitchen sponge or soap bar in its rightful place. Exclusive for The Polished Jar, this beautiful handmade tray would also pair well with our acacia wood tray as a holiday gift bundle. This bundle makes the perfect gift for someone who has recently moved into their home, or anyone you know that wants to make major upgrades to their style while still keeping their home practical. To ensure these gifts last forever, The Polished Jar has made them from durable materials and included specific design elements that contribute to longevity. For example, the concrete tray features four small feet on its base to prevent it from sitting in pooled water. 

Botanical Ring Dish

This porcelain ring dish is a show stopper. Each cream dish is individually handcrafted and rimmed with 22K gold, featuring real impressed leaves that differ depending on the season. Perfect for seasonal cottage-core decor, these tiny dishes are also the perfect stocking stuffer!


Lovely for storing rings and everyday jewelry during showers or on lazy, dressed-down days, these little bowls keep your items safe for when you want to wear them again. Jewelry lovers will love to receive this gorgeous accessory as a Christmas gift, and it makes a beautiful ensemble piece for the nightstand or sink. 

Marble Round Tray

Marble is timeless, so why not give the gift of a beautiful, long-lasting piece to someone you love this holiday season? Our marble tray is a practical gift that still serves as gorgeous home decor. This tray can hold 3-16oz bottles or 2-32 oz bottles, showcasing any kitchen or bathroom accessories that deserve to be seen by house guests. The sleek, classic look of marble works well with virtually any style and will look beautiful for years (or decades) with proper care.

This particular gift set includes three 16oz glass soap bottles from The Polished Jar’s Signature Collection and one acacia wood tray. You can even customize the bottle and pump color. This bundle package highlights our most popular collection and would be a gorgeous addition to anyone’s bathroom decor. Another perfect gift for someone who has recently rented or purchased a new home, this gift set has pretty much everything someone could need to accessorize their bathroom. 

Bundle Package: Kitchen Sink | Hand Wash, Dish Soap Glass Soap Bottles in Signature Collection + White Ceramic Tray

For another holiday gift idea, we offer a kitchen sink package, featuring two of our signature 16oz bottles and a stunning white ceramic tray. Again, you can customize the glass soap bottle and pump color. This bundle package would be a great holiday gift for someone who enjoys cooking and spending time in the kitchen, especially during Christmas time. Simple and timeless, this is the type of gift your friend will use forever and get compliments on for years to come. 

Concrete Tray-Small or Large

This versatile concrete tray is the perfect catch-all for any of The Polished Jar’s glass soap bottles, which also make great gifts for a beloved someone. The concrete finish is clean, modern, and sophisticated, with a touch of stark minimalism for anyone obsessed with exposed brick, concrete, or industrial decoration. 

Offered in small and large sizes, this handmade tray is sealed and rubber feet are added to the bottom for extra protection. Usable in the kitchen, bathroom, your hallway, or anywhere else you need a little extra storage, this is a super versatile gift. If you’re gifting one for Christmas, you can also get custom engraved text, which adds a special touch to an already elegant accessory.
