Top-Searched Home Accents by State, to Help You Gift Smart

Not sure how to gift for birthdays, housewarmings, holidays and other events this year? Go with the data. Here are Google’s top-searched home decor accessories by state.*
*Decor Trends Map data taken on December 22, 2021 from Google's Trend Report 1 and Report 2

1. Wall Art

Alabama, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington

A whopping 13 states prefer wall art over any other accessory, and we certainly get the hype. It’s one of the most expressive gifts out there – and with such a variety of subjects (from animals to architecture to landscapes and more), it’s easy to match the personality of any giftee.

2. Mirrors

Colorado, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee

At seven states, mirrors are in third place. We can’t say that these states are any more “self-obsessed” than the others (we’ve all been caught checking ourselves out in a mirror, after all!) – so we’ll just say they have a higher appreciation for what mirrors actually are: elegant wall decor!

3. Lanterns

Montana, Vermont

Second runner-up goes to Lanterns, at five states. We think it no coincidence that each of these states is a “big-sky” state, where the nights are full of stars – and encourage outdoor repose.

4. Planters

Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island

Right in the middle (at fourth place) are Planters, the favorite of three states, each of which see reasonably distinct seasons – and an abundance of seasonal plants. Notably, states with year-round sunshine don't appear to be the hugest fans of planters; perhaps it’s the lack of something that makes it all the more appreciated!

5. Wine Holders

Ohio

Ohio, singular in its appreciation for vino. Wine Holders – the favorite of exactly the one state, which, we can imagine, knows how to have a good time!

6. Bookends

Kentucky, New York

In second to last place (in a two-way tie), are Bookends. Kentucky and New York take home this most literary of honors!

7. Trays

Hawaii

Trays are the most-searched accessory in Hawaii – and nowhere else. We’ve never been to a party where food was served on trays that we didn’t like – so we’re going to call it: the Aloha state is the most hospitable of all!

8. Vases

Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachussets, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming

Almost half the country wants vases, stat. Vases, the favorite of a gargantuan 23. Why these chic decorative accents designed to keep our flowers alive and beautiful are so popular, we’ll always understand – but then again, if we had it our way, all eight of these home decor accessories would be tied for first place! (Note that some states have an equal amount of interest in more than one accessory; for example, New York claims vases and bookends as its top-searched gift.)
