Is there any place more convenient than Amazon come holiday season? With millions upon millions of products, there are a lot of gift options to choose from, which is precisely why we launched 10 Things That Make Me Happy, a series that asks designers and tastemakers to share their favorite picks for gifting or getting this holiday season. There’s something for everyone on your list, even at the last minute (thank you, Prime Two-Day Shipping). Each product is also available to see IRL at the Domino x Amazon Holiday Home in SoHo, New York. The convenience of Amazon, narrowed down by the coolest tastemakers—’tis the season, indeed!

Domino’s editor in chief and top tastemaker, Jessica Romm Perez, has a fresh point of view, informed by her career in design, travel, fashion, and home decor. This season, she’s decorating with a crisp white palette accented by cozy textures and pops of metallics. Her gift list follows a similar style, featuring a host-approved ceramic pitcher, balancing blocks for the young members on your list, and wicker baskets for clever storage solutions. Shop a few of the items on her gift list (and wish list) below.

Josef Albers in Mexico by Lauren Hinkson, $34

I’m a huge fan of Josef Albers’ colorful abstracts. This book, which chronicles his trips to Latin America from the 1930s through the 1960s, shines new light on his work.

Josef Sideboard Buffet by Now House, $798

I’m obsessed with the way Jonathan Adler has bridged mid-century and contemporary styles in his new collection. Those grooves rock.

There is nothing I love more than making a fire on Sunday morning, with nowhere to be but in that moment.
