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 pop-up in SoHo, New York. The convenience of Amazon, narrowed down by the coolest tastemakers—’tis the season, indeed!
Potter, designer, and author Jonathan Adler brings his iconic POV to a holiday list filled with colorful entertaining gifts, like pink plastic champagne coupes, red lobster cracker tools, and high-style coffee table books.

The king of whimsy has just made holiday shopping so much easier.

I was photographed and interviewed for this book—it’s a lush dive into the substance of style from some of my favorite creatives.
The best thing in the world? Lobster. The worst thing in the world? Trying to hack into one with some tool that looks like it’s straight out of the Middle Ages.
I don’t drink, but these champagne coupes are cute enough that no one will realize I’m sipping sparkling water.
