Sex Objects by Eric Kroll

"You can never go wrong by gifting someone a book. Whether it's your interest in its contents or the recipient's, this exchange has always felt so meaningful to me—especially when it comes from Climax Books. I have already purchased two photo books and some rare VHS movies to gift this holiday season."

Get saucy for $210

- Hannah Tacher, Marketing and Publishing Coordinator

Casa Dragones Joven

"Casa Dragones Joven is a small batch, master blend of 100% Blue Agave silver and extra-aged sipping tequila. After a long year, I can't think of any gift I'd want more. Each bottle is hand-made, hand-engraved, and hand-signed—adding a touch of intimacy to a guaranteed good time."

Get tipsy for $299

BjornQorn Holiday Tin 2022

"Bjorn Qorn is a family owned company based out of Kerhonkson, NY.  Their classic homemade sun-popped popcorn is hand tossed with nutritional yeast, and it's stupid delicious. Every year Bjorn Qorn releases a special edition holiday tin in a nod to Chicago-style popcorn—this year's features a limited edition chili crisp flavor in collaboration with Food52."

- Lori Warriner, Publisher

Parker Cocktail Mix Box 10-Piece Set 

"No one does a festive dinner—or upscale American dining, for that matter—quite like Ralph. For nights when the reservation book is full, or the cab uptown feels too far out of reach, I imagine turning to this cocktail kit for a Polo pop-up in the confines of my own home."

Be your own bartender for $4,495

- Joshua Glass, Executive Editor

Sculptural Vase by Charles Lutz

"The New York-based artist Charles Lutz makes vases that are as functional as they are sculptural. This vase is part of the artist’s Modern Made Leisure project, which he crafted during a 2020 residency at Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Fallingwater House, in Mill Run, Pennsylvania. The entire series from his residency is currently on view there through the end of the year."

Twin Peaks Abstract Hoodie

"I've been going to see Twin Peaks perform live since I was in high school. This holiday season, I'd like to wrap myself in one of their hoodies and reminisce about long nights out with friends."

Get cozy for $36

- Sophie Lee, Editorial Assistant

Hastens mattress

Hästens Vividus

"I’d splurge on a Hästens luxury bed. It might be my 30s, but it makes me excited to go to sleep. And right now when you buy one, the proceeds support Lauren Halsey’s Met rooftop commmission. Just like that, everyone sleeps better."

Sleep luxuriously (price upon request).

- Kat Herriman, Editor-at-large
