Seismic Gift
Behold: The 2012 Holiday Gift Guide

You don’t need much help when it comes to giving a great gift. Especially to yourself. But there are still a few things you might not know about. Like these five items with high gift potential.

UD - Didi Davis Salt Tower

FOR THE SPICE FIEND

Didi Davis Salt Tower

Salt: tends to skew on the boring side. Enter Didi Davis, who decided enough is enough, and from her iodine-rich Ipswich lair has created a tower of 12 different gourmet taste-enhancers like smoked paprika, porcini and one blending chilies from the Aleppo mountains. Syria: the original flavor country.

$28, available at Sault New England, 577 Tremont St, 857-239-9434
UD - The 2013 US Amateur Golf Championship

FOR THE PRO-AM

The 2013 US Amateur Golf Championship

We’re not sure how, but for some reason, you’re not playing in the 2013 US Amateur golf tournament at Brookline’s Country Club this summer. Next best thing: procuring tickets for it. Yes, yelling “Coulda made that” over your beer will be frowned upon.

$25-$500, Aug 12-18, The Country Club, 191 Clyde St, Brookline, tickets here
UD - Kathy Sidell Memoir

FOR THE BUDDING RESTAURATEUR

Kathy Sidell Memoir

Attention, budding restaurateurs: MET Back Bay overlord Kathy Sidell has just released a memoir tracing her career (to date, she has six spots under her belt). Included: MET recipes (see: steak sauce) and even a passage about customers’ naughty trysts in her restaurants’ bathrooms. We’re pretty sure your name isn’t used, thankfully.

$24.95, available at all MET locations
UD - Sir Jack’s Ox Horn Mug

FOR THE ALE FANATIC

Sir Jack’s Ox Horn Mug

You’ve got your unicorn champagne flutes, dragon-tooth whiskey tumblers and even wolverine-claw tequila shot glasses. Adding to your collection of gorgeous animal-based libation holders is this polished 16-ounce oxhorn mug from Sir Jack’s, handmade in England and featuring a natural horn handle, too. That’s one horny mug.

$120, available online at Sir Jack’s
UD - Ghurka Leather Umbrellas

FOR THE OMBROPHOBE

Ghurka Leather Umbrellas

Beautiful in the rain: Paris. Not so beautiful in the rain: your leather jacket.

Or just when it’s raining.
