Gifts in Every Price Range: Alex's List

Taschen Modern Architecture A to Z Foodzie Tasting Box Lanvin Stationary Grove iPad Covers It's Tebow Time Aspen's Moguls Daniele Villegas Earrings German Shepherd Taschen Modern Architecture A to Z

So this Christmas list happens to be mine too, but it has items that work for boyfriends, girlfriends, clients, friends, and everyone in between. So, Santa Baby, pull out your checkbook or the Amex Black Card because here are some perfect holiday gifts for everyone on your list.

  1. The A to Z of Modern Architecture A to Z ($60).

    The definitive guide to modern architecture for those of us who know a lot, a little, and everything in between.

  2. Foodzie Tasting Boxes ($59-300).

    The perfect gift for cooks. This is also the ideal gift for clients as you’ll pop into the forefront of their minds when they get their gift pack in the mail every month.

  3. Lululemon Work-Out Gear (Every price range).

    A great gift for anyone, particularly those who have New Year’s Resolutions involving the gym, yoga, or Pilates.

  4. Lanvin Notecards (Around $115).

    If you can find 'em, get 'em. (Note, we have no link because they seem to be sold out everywhere). Every edition sells into obscurity, but they're mini-pieces of art from one of the best fashion designers in the world.

  5. Grove iPhone/iPad/MacBook covers (Around $30-150).

    We did a piece on these earlier in the year. The shipping time tends to be long (the iPad 7 may be out by time you get it), but give a gift card for our favorite eco-friendly covers for our favorite devices.

  6. Branchlers (Around $300).

    The eco-chic way to antler. Buyers beware. There are a lot of imitations out there, but Tim Clarke in Los Angeles still has my favorite.

  7. Mogul Camp in Aspen (Around $1000 for the camp).

    Three days of being outdoors, après-skiing at The Little Nell, and getting those legs in shape. The perfect vacation for those of us who vacation alone.

  8. NFL Playoff Tickets (Price varies by seat location and game).

    Two words: Tim. Tebow. I’m a Packers fan, but I’ll admit it if you do: We’re all secretly obsessed. Will Divine Intervention help Denver make the playoffs? GB2. (For those of you who don’t know, that’s Tebow for “God Bless” and “Go Broncos.”) Every boyfriend deserves a little trip away. And just think of how he’ll appreciate you when he returns home.

  9. Daniela Villegas Tarzan Earrings ($7950).

    Why did Daniela have to be our guest editor? Now I’m staring at her jewelry all day. (Alas, it's all a teeny-bit out of my price range.) To all you boyfriends out there: Any girlfriend wants insects hanging off her ears. Trust me on this.

  10. A Donation to Westside German Shepherd Rescue in Los Angeles (Any price, but priceless).
