The way to a woman’s heart is through her backlogged DVR. Honor her marathon-viewing habits.
Like Lady Grantham would ever set foot (or cane) in the kitchen. Bequeath your countess premade dinners from Acton-based Blackbird Savory Pies. Beryl loyalists will cluck appreciatively over the ready-to-cook deliveries from Plated.
Game of Thrones
Get medieval on her ass with Lauren Passenti’s Gothic claw pendants, available at holiday pop-up Artistry (open through December 24). Your favorite Daenerys will happily gnaw her way through a year of charcuterie via Farmstead’s Meat Club.
Mom became a late-entry Trubie and promptly developed a serious silver phobia. Newly opened Impulse by Adamas Fine Jewelry stocks bracelets, hoop earrings, and bar necklaces in white, yellow, and rose gold. Warm her cold-blooded self with a recycled cotton throw from Fabricadabra.
Your roomie has a rogue sense of style (though she denies it up and down). Investigate Whats-Nü for right-turn designs — reworked cashmere sweaters, recycled T-shirt jewelry — from local indie designers. The surreal animal-print leggings from Bark Decor further betray her aberrant fashion sense.
Encourage relentless self-examination with an Estée Lauder zodiac powder compact in her sign. Hannah Blount’s new Herkimer collection incorporates diamond-like quartz crystal to glam, accessible effect.
Months later, she’s still obsessing over Megan’s groovy Howard Johnson’s outfit. Increase the love with a Jill Rosenwald chevron lamp, available in exclusive colors at Twelve Chairs. Come happy hour (a.k.a. 10 a.m.), she’ll dig the Boston street-map glasses and carafe from TheUncommonGreen, available at The Boston Shaker.
The Walking Dead
Back-to-back deadlines have rendered your boss a complete zombie. Revive her with Dead Sea-derived skin rejuvenators (she’ll kill for the facial peel) at newly opened Arianna Skin Care (151 Tremont Street, Downtown Crossing). Lest looters nab her stash, hide it away in an ikat cosmetic bag from Patch NYC.
