We spend a lot of time at home during the holidays—really, the whole winter. It's a time for restful relaxation and nesting. Make someone's home even happier with a thoughtful gift that's one part practical and one part luxurious. The key here is to get something they might need, but won't get for themselves. A richly scented candle or luxuriously lathering soap. Maybe a vintage serving board for the friend who's always hosting. Perhaps a cozy quilt or handsome personal heater for the person who can never get warm during the winter. Here are some of the items our team is giving (and asking for) this season.
