In the midst of holiday mayhem, it can be all too easy to lose sight of why we gift. But treating loved ones to thoughtful presents inspired by what they’re most passionate about is a brilliant way to bring it back to the basics of expressing appreciation and care. And for some very special people, it merits going all out with memory-making excursions and meaningful unwrapping experiences.

  1. For Their Well-Being

    Bring them to the spa, or bring the spa to them. The former calls for a majestic backdrop and easy-to-pack pool essentials. And the latter? Heated meditation mats, shearling mules, cushy cashmere sets—stuff like that.

  1. For Their Jewelry Box

    Sparkly people deserve sparkly things. Glistening gold and richly hued gemstones crafted into delicate, diamond-adorned blossoms are two exquisite ways to show someone just how much they mean to you.

  1. For Their Kitchen

    A gift for a gourmand who doesn’t cook can be as simple as springing for something bottled (like a wine cellar starter kit), premade (gingerbread dreamhouse, anyone?), or just really, really pretty (Italian ceramics are always a good idea).
