Have you ever gone Christmas shopping and can only seem to find gifts for giving that you actually want yourself? Happens to us ALL THE TIME. We can spend all year long with our eye on something special and, as soon as the opportunity strikes, allow ourselves to make the purchase…but usually for someone else! Here’s what we’re gifting this year, but really wouldn’t mind having ourselves. (Hint, hint.)
EMILE HENRY POTTER STONEWARE
Thomas Pence, Associate Buyer, Bakeware
I’m gifting this beautiful Emile Henry Potter stoneware set to my mother. I love that it is both gorgeous and functional. The French Burgundian clay is naturally nonstick, cleans easily and high heat resistant (it’s even broiler safe!). At the same time, it also is a great way to add an accent to the dinner table as it can be used from oven to table.
MARTINI GIFT CRATE
Laura Logan, Buyer, Linens and Flatware
Perfect for anyone who loves a good cocktail! Our martini gift set makes it super easy to create this classic cocktail at home! All of our gift crates are also a great way to send holiday cheer to those you’re not able to see this year.
OLIVEWOOD SALAD BOWL
Clare Langan, Senior Content Manager, Video
I’m going to give the 9” Olivewood Salad Bowl to my older sister, who just purchased her first home. Not only is it gorgeous, but it’s the perfect size for smaller groups (or one really hungry salad lover!) When it’s not holding my sister’s favorite Caesar, it can double as a beautiful vessel for fruit.
HEATED HELIOS LOUNGE CHAIR
Raffaele Flauto, Creative Manager
I’m going big this year and gifting my husband the Galanter and Jones Heated Helios Lounge Chair so I get to enjoy it too! This alfresco lounging piece features heated seating, which makes it ideal for enjoying the outdoors all year long.
BREVILLE JOULE SOUS VIDE
Tommy Tran, Director of Visual Merchandising
I LOVE this Breville Joule Sous Vide as a gift! It connects so easily to your phone and literally cooks ANYTHING PERFECTLY. I’m getting it for my cousin this year. He is obsessed with anything techy – gadgety – foodie related. Perfect for him!
STAUB 4-QT DUTCH OVEN
Drew Chase, Associate Buyer, Cookware
I am gifting my mom the Staub 4qt Round Oven with glass lid in La Mer because it’s such a versatile and beautiful item for the kitchen, perfect for cooking anything from casseroles to bone in meat. It even has a self-basting lid!”
KITCHENAID PASTA ROLLERS
Jenn Yee, Senior Content Manager, Social Media
I’m giving my parents the Pasta Roller attachment for their KitchenAid mixer this year. There is nothing like homemade pasta and having the attachment makes it SO easy to have a family pasta night at home, even on a weeknight. I like to make the dough the night before, then it’s simple to roll it out and combine it with sauce for a quick, comforting meal.
TECHNIVORM KBGV SELECT
Jeremy Meyer, Associate Buyer, Electrics
After almost 2 years of heavy work from home use, my parents’ coffee maker finally stopped working. For the holidays this year they’re getting an upgrade to the Technivorm Select, which brews either a full or half-carafe of delicious, SCA certified coffee – and also looks great on the counter.
SCHOTT ZWIESEL PURE WINE GLASSES
Bianca Richardson, Senior Manager, Brand Creative
These are the best wine glasses because they are break- and chip-resistant! My best friend is part of a wine club and these are perfect for her because she can drink all her wine in style, and not worry about ever breaking them or replacing them. She’ll have them forever!
ZWILLING 8-PIECE STEAK KNIFE SET
Jennifer Linsley, Buyer, Cutlery
This set is one of our best deals for the holiday season! The sleek, stainless steel knives come in a black box that’s great for gifting. They’re perfect for not only anyone who loves steak, but the also dinner party host and entertainer that wants something sturdy enough for protein, but also beautiful to put out on the dinner table.
