What to Buy for the Person Who Truly Has Everything This Holiday Season

The season may have crept up on you—with the pandemic, election, and general state of affairs in the world, we don’t blame you—but it is time to turn your attention to the holidays. What on earth could be an appropriate gift to buy your friends and family that adequately shows them some love during such an unprecedented time? Especially for your particularly finicky brother, who insists he doesn’t need anything; or your mother, who “loves everything you give” until it somehow makes its way to the return counter; or your significant other, who shrugs when you ask what they’d like. Plus, there’s the potential for any visitation plans to be scrapped in December. Winter vacation still might be up in the air, but luckily, brands are catering to those staying local this year. Buy some of these gifts online and have them delivered to your loved ones—or, if you’re lucky enough to pay them a visit, deliver them in-person. However you hand the presents over, you’ll find something for everyone on your list, here.

Eat Nünchi Cake, Price Upon Request,

These fanciful jelly cakes—made by Los Angeles-based fashion designer Lexie Park—are only available in the Southern California area for pickup. But if you’re in the region, don’t sleep on her chic, dainty creations in pastel colors, flecked with edible glitter and studded by her signature flower-shaped gelatin cutouts. —Maxine Wally

Christophe Robin Signature, $125,

For the person who already has everything, I always like to gift an experience. A favorite of mine is the Christophe Robin signature from Whiteroom Salon in Brooklyn. Outside of Christophe’s salon in Paris, Whiteroom Brooklyn is the only location that offers this luxurious hair treatment. The team applies a mask that cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates and they finish it all off with a 30-minute head massage. —Jenna Wojciechowski

Hand painted Ceramic Trompe L’Oeil Plate, $195.00,

A part of the Farm-to-Table by Moda Domus fall 2020 collection, this plate is the perfect gift for the person in your life who’s got it all—I can assure you that they will not have this corn plate. —JW

Loewe Wax Candle, $80,

Yes, giving a candle as a gift can feel like a phoned-in gesture. (Another Diptyque feu de bois? Groundbreaking.) But these unusual scented wax tapers from Loewe are the exception to the rule. Elegant, sculptural, and infused with scents like “Luscious Pea,” “Scent of Marihuana” and “Tomato Leaves,” they’ll be sure to please the most exacting design snobs and perfume connoisseurs alike. —Andrea Whittle

Bottle Bag, $49,

Wine obsessives almost always have corks, openers, and racks to display their bottles. But what they might not have is this hand-tied bottle sling bag made out of nylon cord. It comes with a drawstring closure and adjustable strap, so it makes for a perfect carrier when bringing a bottle of wine to a park or party, and shows off the label. You don’t even have to use it for wine—there are different sizes, so you could use it for water bottles or cantines, too. —Brooke Marine

Candy Puzzle, $48,

Artist Robyn Blair transformed her signature candy art into a 200-piece jigsaw to put her spin on the 2020 puzzle trend. With sayings ranging from “Think Happy Thoughts” to “In Case of Emergency, Break Glass,” this gift provides both an activity for the holiday season as well as something sweet to get framed later. —Jenny Oliver

Hill House Home Eye Mask, $50,

“Je Suis Tired.” Give the gift of a good night’s sleep with Hill House Home’s silk eye mask this holiday season. There’s no doubt “the person who already has everything” already owns the matching silk pillow cases, so the coordinating eye mask will make the perfect addition. —JO

Honey Mama’s Bar 9-Pack, $48,

For the finicky friend who is gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo—but a lover of sweets nonetheless—this is the ideal treat. Honey Mama’s honey-cacao bars are absolutely delicious and focus on clean ingredients. They taste like truffles, but are made of of raw honey, unrefined coconut oil, cocoa powder, Himalayan pink salt, and sprouted almonds, shredded coconut, or sesame seeds. That’s it! Order this pack to try one of each unique flavor; they will not disappoint. —Allia Alliata di Montereale

LG PuriCare Mini, $199,

This is a small, yet powerful portable air purifier. It’s lightweight and the size of a water bottle, so it fits perfectly in your bag to bring with you on a flight, in an Uber, or at your desk, using LED smart senses to detect any impurities in real time. —AM

Celine Miniatures Coffret Eau de Parfum, $335,

They say good things come in small packages—and in this case, they can smell good too. For the woman in your life who likes to make an entrance and entrance simultaneously, gift these nine miniature Celine perfumes with scents ranging from a fruity “Saint-Germain-Des-Prés” to a musky “Nightclubbing.” While mini in stature, (a perfect fit for any handbag or desktop,) these scents are sure to pack a chic punch. —Laura Jackson and Christina Holevas

Aligheri Il Leone Medallion Necklace, $277,

Each piece from the jewelry brand Aligheri is inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy—necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and charms from the London-based company corresponds to one of Dante’s poems. This gold-plated necklace makes a statement while remaining chic and understated; and it’s gender-neutral. —MW
