A. DIPTYQUE PARIS HOLIDAY CANDLES
Everyone likes a good scent. And with new boutique on Damen, the holiday line of fragrances will keep visions of sugar-plums dancing in your head.
B. MOSER PEBBLES SHOT GLASS
Grown Up Shot Glasses. Because we’re old now.
C. LULU FROST FOR J. CREW NECKLACE
This is a statement necklace to go with any dress or top. Added bonus: it would make a great gift for that hostess that’s also your BFF.
D. ARTFULLY DISHEVELED THE OUTLAW POCKET SQUARE
Perfect Pocket! This is for the guy that gets fashion. Or at least kinda. Plus, a girl would like this too (i.e. This girl!).
E. WEST ELM AGATE COASTERS
For those of us who aren’t so delicate this makes a statement while protecting that amazingly soft leather ottoman. These Agate ones are a great mix of edge and warmth.
F. WEST ELM PINE CONE SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS
I rarely use pretty shakers, but these are so great for a seated dinner party. Excellent table decor.
G. ST. GEORGE TERROIR GIN
Forget the wine—it’s so expected. Instead, opt for a great bottle of liquor with your fav cocktail recipe. St. George comes in a very cool bottle, and you can opt for trio of small bottles to boot!

H. WHITE TRUFFLE OIL
You should always have this on hand.
