5 Gifts to Go Gaga Over

A Mano's Little Luxuries

Cozy home store A Mano is packed with creative finds everyone on your list will want to get their hands on.

Demitasse Spoons and Salad Servers, $17.50-$125
French tableware company Sabre has just introduced a line of mix-and-match acrylic spoons and servers in shiny hues like hot pink, gray, and forest green. Your design-addict boss will reach for them every time she sets the table.

Jonathan Adler Astrological Sign Pillows, $48
Your new-agey sister-in-law will have stars in her eyes when she lays them on her new needlepoint throw pillow. Whether she’s a feisty Leo or logical Cap, she’s sure to dig the brightly colored velvet cushions.

Collars and Leashes, $95-$135
Wrapping one of Alpen Schatz’s collars around his neck guarantees your four-legged friend holds his head high. The red or black leather accessories (and matching leashes) are decorated with gold-colored brass charms and medallions that’ll earn him best in show.

Cheetah Slippers, $65
She might not be able to click her heels and get back home, but your bestie living abroad will feel warm and cared for when you present red leather moccasin slides lined in cozy animal print.

Candy Tins, $15-$48
Plastic candy canes filled with M&Ms might have sufficed in grade school, but it’s time to step it up for the office gift exchange. Be the best Secret Santa by delivering a clear paint can or extra-large glass jar filled with gummy bears, Swedish fish, or gum balls and wrapped in bundles of holiday ribbon.

A Mano, 1677 Wisconsin Avenue Northwest, at Reservoir Road (202-298-7200 or amano.bz).
