THE IN-TRAY

Gift ideas for everyone in your group

There’s the globetrotter, the homebody and the girl on every guest list—chances are your gifting list has a diverse range of personalities to account for, and a one-size-fits-all mentality just won’t do. Whether they have Dom Perignon taste or opt for vegan turkey, our edited selection of gifts ensures something for everyone in your group. You can’t pick your friends but you can choose a stellar gift to suit them.

FOR THE NESTER

When it comes to the house proud, these elegant home accessories will make her the queen of her domain. From inviting home fragrances to exquisite candles, Byredo’s holiday range rules the roost. The much-anticipated Chai candle fills the home with the festive scent of spice, black tea and warm milk, while this trio of complementary sandalwood and cedar candles, Cotton Poplin, Bohemia and Tree House, will be right at home under the tree. We’re also pegging the Rose Hand Care Gift Set to take top spot in the guest bathroom this season. For those who appreciate a dose of whimsy, look no further than a pencil-holder-shaped Anya Smells Diffuser from British accessories designer Anya Hindmarch. It’s cute, nostalgic and available in three quirky scents: pencil shavings, chewing gum and lollipops. And for traditionalists, the Mon Beau Sapin Scented Candle from Maison Francis Kurkdjian, in an embossed gold vessel, doubles as a festive ornament while evoking the scent of holiday fir trees.
