No need to stress: Here are the items we’re adding to our cart for everyone on our lists.
Nifty Double Wall Mesh Bowl, $17.99Doesn’t this make every average fruit bowl look boring now? It’s thanks to the double-walled mesh material paired with the fresh pop of copper. Beyond just housing fruit, this bowl can become a centerpiece in itself.
Areaware Blockitecture Deco, $27.09Electronics and tech are cool and all, but we say go back to the basics with some old-school blocks for the kids in your life (or kids at heart). These Areaware blocks are not like others, though, thanks to the buildings and color scheme, which are inspired by iconic post-modern architecture around the world. A kettle might sound like an odd Christmas gift for a beloved—but have you ever seen a kettle so beautiful before? The ergonomic design is based on giving a slow and controlled pour (perfect for pour-over coffee, if you have a fancy coffee lover in your life), but the slender spout also just looks showstopping. We’re partial to the matte black shade, which is designed and manufactured in Japan. Leave it to Amazon to make a vase that actually steals attention away from the gorgeous bouquet of flowers it’s holding. It’s subtle enough to fit in almost any space or aesthetic and looks much more expensive than its $21 price tag.
High Vibrational Beauty, $16.18
This extraordinary book is unlike any other that has come before it, thanks to the authors—and founders of epic clean beauty mecca CAP Beauty—Kerrilynn Pamer and Cindi DiPrima Morisse. There are recipes for food and skincare and tips for living well—broken down by seasons.
A literal magnolia tree. Brilliant and unique, it also just happens to be one of the most fragrant and flowering trees. Maybe do BOGO—buy one, gift one—for this tree.
Amazon Echo, $69.99
Who doesn’t want an Echo? It’s your live-in personal assistant. A great gift for your roommate, yourself, and any of your family members.
Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC, $399
Maybe your beloved wants to go old school with a record player. This is easy to set up and sounds amazing—and isn’t it beautiful? You might as well throw in a vintage record too. The Boss is always a good idea.
The most underrated kitchen tool, they’ll swear by this squeezer. It also just so happens to be the best-selling juicer on Amazon, so it works flawlessly. Inspire your recipient to make lemonade or lemon meringue pie with their new gadget.
Le Chateau Wine Decanter, $42.95
Fulfill all your wine connoisseur wishes and caviar dreams with this hand-blown, crystal decanter. Let them know they (and their wine) are so worth it.
Diptyque Candle, $90
One of the most luxurious candles (and scents) around, this is basically extravagance wrapped up in a box for $90. (They won’t even know it’s a last-minute buy!)
