Around this time every year, Curbed editors get together to share our personal wishlists for the holiday season. These lists, which reflect a myriad of styles, perspectives, and preferences, are picked apart until we’re left only with what we believe are the very best.
Our final choices, as you’ll see, range in scale, price, function, style, and mission: Some are decidedly on trend, many others are timeless, and all of them are things we’d all be eager to gift—or to receive.
Know someone who loves New York, LA, Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit, or Atlanta? Great. We’ve also published shopping lists that source our favorite products from local designers and artists in each of those cities. Get gifting.
