  • Christmas Hat and Sweater Bottle Topper


    Top that bottle of bubbly you’re gifting to your hairstylist with this sweet red-and-white Nordic patterned sweater & stocking cap, and you’ll instantly make that $10 bottle seem more like a $25 one.

  • Succulent Garden


    Flowers die pretty quickly, but succulents are far too hearty to bump off that fast. This little green garden is a great way to say thank you that will last beyond the holidays. The sleek bamboo box makes for a subtle centerpiece, too.

  • The Whisky Advent Calendar


    Advent calendars with stale pieces of chocolate behind each door are best left to the kiddos. For a hostess gift that adults will drool over (and will result in you being invited back again and again), this over-21-only alcoholic advent tracker is a sure bet. Behind each of the 24 doors lies a bottled dram of a different whisky - one of them is even a 50 year-old Scotch whisky! We�d understand, though, if you wanted to buy this for yourself.
