  • Izola

    Neat Flask ($27)

    "I'm going retro this holiday season with these cool flasks from Izola. For my connoisseur BFFs, the one labeled "NEAT" gives a dual nod to their awesomeness and the best way to enjoy our favorite bourbon."—Danielle Nussbaum, Entertainment Director, Clique Media

  • Vita Fede

    Ultra Mini Clear Swarovski Crystal V-Ring ($150)

  • Wittmore

    Oh Wow Note Card Set ($22)

    “I’ll be giving these terrapin station note cards that are sold at Wittmore. The joke is that the sayings on the cards are what the owner of the store always uses as expressions. I love the “Oh Wow” set because it’s flexible. It can mean congratulations, happy birthday, or thank you. Who’s getting them? Friends who still love writing a letter and popping it in the mail!”—Laurie Trott, Fashion Director, Who What Wear

  • Sunset Wine

    Subscription ($130)

    “My parents love wine and love to cook so I am getting them a subscription to Sunset Wine Club. Each month, they will receive two bottles of wine—one red, one white—and two gourmet recipes to pair with each wine. It's the gift that keeps on giving all year long...”—Alex Taylor, Director of Content & Social Strategy, Clique Media

  • Restoration Hardware

    Luxe Faux Fur Hot Water Bottle ($25)

    "I'm giving this furry hot water bottle cover to my mom. It gets cold where she lives, and I know she'll appreciate this luxurious way to warm her toes!"—Kat Collings, Associate Editor, Who What Wear

  • Alexander Wang

    Shot Glasses With Case ($115) in Pale Gold

    “My little sister just turned 21, so I'm being a bad influence and getting her these outrageously awesome shot glasses.”—Nicky Deam, Market Editor, Who What Wear

  • Cobra Society

    Classic Slim Lighter Case ($50)

    Constantine I Necklace ($150)

  • Fornasetti

    Labbra Candle ($165)

    “For my best girlfriend: a Fornasetti Labra Candle. The woodsy mix of thyme and lavender makes for a sophisticated seasonal scent, and the jar will look great as a container for pencils or brushes after it has melted.”—Mat Sanders, Editorial Director, Domaine Home

  • Minox

    DCC 14.0 Digital Camera ($200)

    “Adult toys are perfect for the guy who has everything. The whole camera is smaller than a credit card and takes pictures large enough to blow up wall size.”—Brett Ramey, Art Director, Clique Media

  • Vintage Playboy

    "My friends are getting vintage Playboys!! Even online editors love print magazines and the writing in old Playboys—especially the '60s and '70s—is amazing. Essays by Helen Gurley Brown, Roald Dahl, Jack Kerouac, and even Ian Fleming accompany the not-quite-intellectual photographs. Also, it's a great conversation starter to leave on the coffee table."—Britt Aboutaleb, Editorial Director, Byrdie

  • Belstaff

    Black Absinthe Candle ($110)

    "My brother just started law school in Wyoming, and he's still adjusting to the frigid weather. To make his new space feel cozy, I'll be gifting him one of my all-time favorite candles: Belstaff's Black Absinthe Candle. It's warm, complex, and perfect for a bachelor pad."—Lexy Lebsack, Editor, Byrdie
