A confession: I haven’t done any of my holiday shopping.
Well, let me backtrack a bit; I’ve bought a few things, mostly small and falling in the “ancillary gift” category, but we’re getting down to the wire now and ABRAMS calendars for the whole family isn’t going to cut it.
If you’re in a similar pickle, I recommend Pinterest—no, not to distract yourself with photos of dream homes, foreign places, or fanciful desserts, but to find last-minute gifts.* We asked three of our colleagues to curate boards featuring unique presents and party ideas, many of which can be quickly made or quickly shipped.
Ivy McFadden, senior managing editor with a serious case of wanderlust, pinned Gifts for Modern Travelers with Vintage Sensibilities inspired by the Louis Vuitton luggage labels in World Tour.
There are enough ideas here for everyone on my list, and hopefully any fellow last-minute gifters will find inspiration, too. Enjoy—and happy holidays!
*I guess we covered the dream homes-foreign places-fanciful desserts trifecta, didn’t we?
