Pig 2
“Pig” Set of 2 Salt & Pepper Shakers
If she likes unexpected doses of whimsy at home – a white paper-mache deer head in the living room, say, or a few gold-cast elephants splayed on the bookshelf – look to this teeny pair of pigs for a pop of dinner-table joy. Nickel-plated and just three inches long, they come perched in their own little gift box. Add only a bow and she’ll squeal with glee.

mophie Juice Pack

mophie “Juice Pack” for the HTC One 
Considering the texting, emailing, Instagramming, Facebooking, Tumblr viewing, picture taking, moviemaking, and tweeting with which our culture is currently obsessed, the life of a smartphone battery isn’t always an easy (or long) one. Exhibit A: The friend whose phone always powers down in the middle of an actual call to make plans. The solution? A portable power pack that charges his phone with the flick of a switch, so you can live out those fun plans together and not have to watch them unfold online.

Gift Pick: Franchi "Alma" Silk Clutch

Franchi “Alma” Silk Clutch
You know this friend. She always has plans when the weekend rolls around and her closet is stacked with party dresses and six-inch heels. Finding a gift that will match it all? Easy. It’s this studded silk clutch. Guaranteed to jazz up any LBD, she’ll have room for all her going-out essentials – credit card, phone, and lipstick. And with its convenient gold chain strap, there will be no awkward under-the-arm juggling once she’s working the room with a flute of bubbly in hand. That sounds like something worth toasting to.

Cole Haan Messenger crop

Cole Haan “Hudson II” Leather Messenger Bag
Everyone says that, in relationships, it’s best not to try to change your man (or woman). But when it comes to his fashion sense? A little nudge never hurts, especially regarding his work wardrobe. The fastest route to a look that says professional without being professorial is a clean-lined crossbody bag in luxe leather. He’ll carry everything from his laptop to his most sacred files – and himself – with a whole new kind of confidence. And he’ll have you to thank for it.

Missoni Umbrella

Missoni “Sara” Long Umbrella
That friend of yours with about 15 Birkins in her closet? She isn’t the easiest to shop for if you aren’t in the mood to shell out thousands. So here’s your solution. Present her with an umbrella bearing one of this beloved fashion house’s most iconic prints. The Missoni logo will send her shrieking at decibels reserved mostly for opera halls. And you won’t be shrieking at your bank statement. Win-win.
