Our Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide
Happy holidays, friends! With just over a week until Chanukah and Christmas a few days after that, if you haven't already done so, it's time to start shopping. We're continuing our month-long celebration of our favorite things by giving you: Our favorite gifts. Sure, we gave you our favorite experiences last week. And you should absolutely do them. But gift giving is always in style, and we can help check everyone off your list -- whether they're naughty or nice! For every modernist on the list, head to Switch Modern. Our favorite West Midtown modernist mecca has Design Icons of the 20th Century – Included in Museums Around the World on display, showcasing furniture and accessories designed from the early 1900s through the turn of the century that are not only still in production, they are featured in permanent collections of museums worldwide, illustrating the durability of important design. You can't go wrong with a Philippe Starck Gnome, Aalto Vase by iitala or PSJS Juicy Salif juicer. Fashionistas? We got you! Mignonne Gavigan's cult classic earrings, neck scarves and other accessories from Tootsies are the jam. For every skin care product junkie on the list, look not further than Pure MD. Our gal pal Amanda Gorecki has launched Cocoa Glam, an amazing new hydrating, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant mask to promote skin radiance. How about a bookworm? We have two favorites by local authors: Michael Coles' Time to Get Tough: How Cookies, Coffee, and a Crash Led to Success in Business and Life recounts the failures and successes that led him from poverty and a near-fatal motorcycle accident to founding the $100-million Great American Cookies and becoming the namesake of the business school at Georgia’s third largest university—despite never having attended college himself. Kent Alexander and Kevin Salwen penned The Suspect: An Olympic Bombing, the FBI, the Media, and Richard Jewell, the Man Caught in the Middle, a captivating read that was a contributing source for the Clint Eastwood film Richard Jewell, starring Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm, Olivia Wilde and Paul Walter Hauser. No matter what you give -- or get -- make it a great holiday season!
