anthology magazine!

You sing her praises with seasonal joy. Give your best gal pal a gift that will make her croon.

Home for the Holidays
She’s a nester. Outfit her digs with quarterly inspiration from Anthology magazine ($38) or an apartment-size bike ($34) and holiday tree ($11). If she’d rather skip town, send her off with a travel-ready clutch ($140) or bright carry-on ($76).

Silver Bells
Gift your bauble head no matter her preference: Go bold with a statement cuff ($120) or 2x3’s inaugural line of rope-meets-metal necklaces ($95 each), while dainty ladies squeal for delicate cross-stitched pendants ($25-$42) and stately ornaments ($44).

Help her prep for that special moment (Bieber included or not) with a certificate for guaranteed babe hair (from $35), courtesy of Drybar, and universally flattering, peppermint-infused Street Balm ($22).

Feliz Navidad
Celebrate like you’re south of the border with Papalote’s famous salsa, now available in a trio ($21), or Merry Carnitas cards ($14 for a set of eight) for your meat-loving sis.

auberge du soleil torte au chocolat!Eat, Drink, and Be Merry
It’s her mantra. Toast her festively with a bubbly threesome ($105), chic bottles ($17-$19) from Banana Republic, or even Chantal Guillon Kir Royal macarons ($46 for a 24-pack; to order, call 415-864-2400). Tempt her sweet tooth with wine from the Swansons ($75-$140), a decadent torte ($57.50), or 3rd nut caramels ($20).

Baby, It’s Cold Outside
She loves her cozy time. Keep her toasty in an infinity scarf ($54) or scoodie ($65) — that’s right, a scarf/hoodie — from Stolen Sunday.

You’re sure to strike a chord.
