Welcome to Curbed's first gift guide, wherein our editors sort through a retail landscape rife with tech, toys, textiles, trinkets, and tchotchkes. This year we're shopping for some rather specific recipients—though we think you'll find the gift selection broadly appealing. Shop on!
From Kelly Wearstler's brand new designer dog houses to Jonathan Adler's timeless treat canisters, there's a plethora of gifting options when it comes to the dog whisperer in your life. Do you have a special someone who's got the swankiest kitchen but the most uninspiring food bowls? Meet Nicholas Newcomb, who makes handmade food bowls out of his studio in Brooklyn. Have a dear friend who's losing sleep because the original wool upholstery on her vintage Florence Knoll sofa is starting to look its age because the house canine can't seem to keep its paws off the sofa? Save the day with a throw specifically designed for defending furniture from pet hair and dirt. From funky cat caves to a photography book profiling dogs old and young, we've got you covered for all your canine and kitty gifting needs.
