Believe it or not, the holiday season is upon us (but don’t panic just yet). This year, stay on top of your gifting game with a little help from our merchants. They’ve scoured the market for all things indulgent so you can check off wish lists with ease. Below, three Rue buyers offer advice on giving luxe items.

When Gifting for the Home

Knife Block Gift Pick

 

Everedge by Henckels 16-Piece Knife Block Set
There’s an unspoken rule among chefs: If you do the cooking, someone else does the cleaning. This, however, can turn you into a full-time cook if your roommate (or, ahem, your significant other) is totally content washing every dish and cutting board in the kitchen each night. The best way to convince them to put down the sponge and pick up a sauté pan? A set of shiny new knives that dice a tomato and mince garlic like it’s nobody’s business. Just make sure you have a convincing and motivational speech to go along with it.

Our A Gazillion Gifts Boutique is now open.

Goof-Proof Gifting Reason #1: Free returns. For everyone on your gift list. Learn more.
