Flowers are a nice gesture. Then again, flowers die. Better just go with this flower-shaped iPhone amp from the High Museum gift shop instead. It’s the kind of thing that’d look great in a minimalist loft. A regular house, even. Maybe on a desk. Hammock? We’re done now.
Give Free or Die
It’s Okay. Your Gift Guide Is Here Now.
You’re a selfless person. We know that. You know that. The loved ones who are about to unwrap these certifiably astounding mini treasures know that. Great. Now that we all know that...
Turns out, it’s okay to give a gift that’ll also ultimately benefit you. So if a cookbook from Billy Reid with 130 recipes from a James Beard Award–winning Mississippi chef happened to find its way under an aspiring cook’s tree... well, that’s just strategic generosity.
The perfect gift. You’ve searched high. You’ve searched low. You’ve search—oh, hey, here it is: a pre-gift-wrapped Moscow Mule set including a bottle of spicy ginger shrub, two copper mugs and a recipe. Extra points for remembering to wrap some vodka.
There’s a time and a place for dainty diamond trinkets. Here and now: not it. So direct your lovely muse’s gaze to this oxidized gunmetal necklace from Ann Mashburn. It’s basically sexy chain mail. It’s that or a sexy shark suit.
Chances are, you know someone who can ride a bike. So when you wheel out this Brothers Rich road racer with a vintage frame, Portuguese tree cork grips and a big red bow on it for them, they’re probably going to like it. If not, more bike for you.
