Bagel best friend necklace. (Or this sweet one.)
Nothing to See Here, a hilarious novel that’s getting rave reviews. Says Taffy Brodesser-Akner in the New York Times Book Review: “I can’t believe how good this book is… It’s wholly original. It’s also perfect.”
A fig-scented candle from amazing candlemakers (or even a monthly candle subscription).
A peanut butter, caramel and pretzel candy bar, which combines all the delicious things, or sea salt caramels, which always hit the spot.
Downton Abbey Clue. Because a valuable object has been stolen, and Carson needs our help!
A plant for her bedside table.
Dior lipstick is a splurgy special treat, and it really is THAT GOOD. A makeup artist kindly gave it to me this year, and it brightens your whole face. The lip plumper is moisturizing and lasts forever, and my favorite color is a soft rose called “Dior Pretty.”
Book tote for making new friends.
Tarot card set, for beginners or experts, to play together.
An experience gift, like a Chelsea art tour with my friend Gisela (they’re incredibly entertaining, and you learn so much!), or going to dinner or taking a long walk or baking brownies together, just the two of you.
