And since you’re a wise person who makes wise choices, here we go...

This is a nice-looking corkscrew that Shinola made in conjunction with celebrity tattoo artist Scott Campbell. And since you’re already here, might as well get one for yourself. $125, Saved Wines Corkscrew

You know someone who would appreciate this origami-inspired bracelet from Alexis Bittar. Just a vibe we get from you. $225, Crystal Encrusted Coiled Origami Bracelet

Sqirl. You’ve waited in its lines. You’ve eaten its sorrel pesto rice. You’re about to buy its cookbook. So that someone can eventually cook you its sorrel pesto rice without you waiting in its line. $40, Everything I Want to Eat: Sqirl and the New California Cooking

“That insanely beloved person who gave us three pints of McConnell’s ice cream each month for a year.” Hope you’re comfortable with that title. $132-$880, McConnell’s Pint of the Month Club

Here you thought the Broad was only good for showing you statues of Michael with Bubbles the Chimp and giant tables to walk under. Turns out, it’s also good for helping you stuff people’s stockings with Keith Haring dominoes. And that’s one to grow on. $65, Keith Haring Domino Set

Your friend has been bingeing hard on Westworld. Lure them back into the world of smelling great again with these solid colognes from Outlaw Soaps, scented like leather, gunpowder, bourbon and other things they won’t mind smelling like. $58, The Outlaw’s Life Solid Cologne Trio

This merino wool cardigan was knit in LA. And the dad type you’re giving it to may even be able to wear it in LA. Someday. Maybe. $648, The Cardigan, Caribou

She deserves a massage. In fact, she deserves the seasonal full-body massage at the Montage that involves hot buttered rum oil. Whoever “she” is. $220, Scents of the Season Massage at Spa Montage

Your social circle includes its share of Scottish lords and ladies. At least it will once you make a handful of your friends official lords and ladies with an official Highland title and their own plot of soil. It’s for them. Really. $42-$705/square foot, Highland Titles

You’re not saying that whoever you’re dating is disorganized. You’re just saying that they’d like this nice leather organizer bag from This Is Ground. That’s all you’re saying. $499-$599, Mod Laptop 3
