1. Robinson’s Prime Reserve Samuel Adams lobster roll pack. Since moving to Boston six years ago, I’ve slowly but surely become a Sam Adams girl. (Sam Summer on draft practically sponsored my first season here, after all.) With all the fixings to make a Summer Ale–infused lobster roll – plus four Samuel Adams pint glasses – this little gourmet kit is the surest way to get that summer-in-Boston fix… even when it’s bitter cold out. Our The Holiday Spread: Steaks, Salami, & More Boutique opens Monday, December 10, at 11AM ET. 

2. Badgley Mischka gown. Question: What would Angelina wear? Answer: This. Our Badgley Mishka Boutique opens Sunday, December 9, at 11AM ET. 

3. Shun Chef’s Knife. I’ve come to accept the fact that my younger brother will always be a better cook than me. In lieu of waving a white flag? I’ll just gift him this seriously legitimate chef’s knife. (Well done, little one.) Our The Chef’s Go-To: Shun Knives Boutique opens Thursday, December 13, at 11AM ET.

4. Metrokane V1 Vacuum Decanter. For those (somewhat rare) occasions when a bottle of wine lasts more than a few days in my apartment, this vacuum decanter will ensure that every last drop tastes as good as – make that even better than – it tasted on the day of opening. Our Metrokane Boutique opens Friday, December 14, at 11AM ET.
