Holiday Gift Guide: The Culinary Cutie

Sure, Santa may get a lot of credit when Christmas rolls around, but the biggest holiday hero is the one who tirelessly puts the finishing touches on everything from appetizers to dessert—and doesn’t mind one bit. Give the culinary cutie in your life something she truly wants: a secret weapon to up the entertaining ante. I’ve heard fabulous things about those salt and pepper mills…

1. Sucre Sucre, $8 // 2. West Elm, $32 // 3. Le Creuset, $120 // 4. Marimekko, $69 // 5. High Street Market, $22 // 6. JCP, $75 set of four // 7. Mark & Graham, $39 // 8. Williams-Sonoma, $8 // 9. White Whale, $48 // 10. L’econome, $48 // 11. The Kinfolk Table, $35 // 12. Crate & Barrel, $25 each // 13. Grandiflora, $28 set of two

Holiday Gift Guide: The Frequent Flyer

image

The seasoned traveler on your list will always appreciate a luxury luggage tag and a beautiful satchel to attach it to, but a gift that reminds her of a special trip will be even more treasured. Even though they’re a splurge, a pair of bistro chairs can bring back memories of lazy afternoons in Paris. A little brass elephant is a wallet-friendly way to commemorate an adventure in Thailand. If she’s more of a U.S. traveler, a set of mint julep cups (not pictured) will bring her back to the horse races at Churchill Downs. 

1. Naked Decor, $27 set of 2 // 2. Julie Vos, $165 // 3. Air Repair, $12 // 4. Uqllu, scarves start at $85 // 5. High Street Market, $28 // 6. Tory Burch, $325 // 7. Julie Vos, $165 // 8. Flight 001, $28 // 9. Cotton On, $15 // 10. Tiffany & Co., $85 // 11. Diane von Furstenberg, $95 // 12. Floto, $299 // 13. Lauren by Ralph Lauren, $48 // 14. Williams-Sonoma, $295
