They’ve got gadgets and gizmos aplenty. Find what those impossible-to-shop-for pals are really after at the gorgeous corner boutique.
Coral & Tusk Pillows and Art, $65-$115
Nature lovers will give a hoot for tiny removable owl pillows and embroidered animals framed in shadow boxes from the ultra-cool, New York-based line.
Patrick Keesey Serving Boards, $70-$275
Tree huggers will be be swayed by the ripple-edge cutting board and serving platter made from beautifully polished, 100 percent postproduction sycamore wood.
Glass Piggy Bank, $25
For he who lives a charmed life, Roost’s mouth-blown glass pig with hand-fashioned wood snout is money in the bank.
Advent Village, $90
Even the most well-traveled of pals will be in awe when exploring an entire village of wood Advent houses. Each structure contains five drawers engraved with numbers 1 through 25 that are perfect for hiding sweets and treats. It’s the cutest thing we’ve seen in a while.
Lucia Soaps and Candles, $3-$25
They may have time and money to burn, but highfalutin hostesses will still want to light the soy candles (tea leaf and honeysuckle) and lather up with organic soaps (watercress with chai tea) sourced from fair trade-supporting farm collectives all over the world.
