From staying on budget to finding that perfect present, holiday gifting options are as wide and varied as are your friends and family. What do you get your boo? The jet-setter? What's an acceptable gift for your boss? The stress! Put down the credit card, take a breather, and let your friends at The Daily do the scouring. Our team is sharing our holiday must-haves each week; check out the full bounty on Pinterest here.
Who: The Chic But iPhone-Abusing Pal
What: DANNIJO Tate iPhone 4 Case
Why: Her smartphone can barely keep up with her rollicking lifestyle; perhaps she'll be inspired to clothe that device with this mesmerizing print.
Who: The Boy
What: Marc by Marc Jacobs Edwin Sweater Glove
Why: When there's no one to hold his hand and the beau is left to his own devices on brisk days, these simple, stylish warmers will suffice in lieu of body heat.
Who: The BFF With An Appetite For Subversive (Baubles) Who: The Dad Who Designs Who: The Perpetually Wanderlust-Filled Former Roomie
What: Cast of VIces Ups and Downs Rx Ring [Percocet]
Why: In lieu of raiding the pharmacy for recreational drug usage (not like anyone's condoning that, cheris), let 'em wear a faux opiate instead.
What: MoMA Design Store Blueprint Cufflinks
Why: When he needs to roll up his sleeves and hunker down on the drafting board, it's only apropos for my dad's cufflinks to resemble the blueprints he's working on!
What: The New York Times 36 Hours: 150 Weekends in the USA & Canada Book
Why: One of the Times' most brilliant and practical weekly features, in our humble opinion, gets the Taschen treatment in this beaut collection of weekend jaunts.
What: C.Wonder Cheese Markers Set of 6
Why: Now it's easier to actually keep track of which dairy delicacy's being devoured next time the cheese and vino (inevitably) gets broken out.
Who: The Sushi-Obsessed Friend (Perpetually At-Risk For Mercury Poisoning)
What: Mxyplyzyk Chop Stick Basket
Why: How much spicy tuna, tartare, tataki, et al is just too much? Don't dare to pose that question to the sushi-mongering pal; instead, get her a thematic item that doesn't involve consumption of more rolls.
Who: The Stackable-Ring Connoisseur Sister
What: Sarah Richardson Small Single Pod Diamong Ring
Why: Because that collection of superthin, teensy-diamond-studded digit stackers is my sister's favorite accessory; might as well add another one to the mix!
Who: The BFF With An Appetite For Subversive (Baubles)
Who: The Dad Who Designs
Who: The Perpetually Wanderlust-Filled Former Roomie
