Get ahead on the holiday season creep-up. With must-have finds at every price point – from stocking stuffers to big-ticket items – this Boutique makes it easy to satisfy every request in a snap. Read on for tips on how to turn two popular gifts (big and small) into ones they’ll never put down.

 Just-Right Gift Picks for the Holidays

Stocking Stuffers
One bracelet makes a statement – a whole stack turns heads. Gift a variety of metals and sizes by tying them together with a ribbon.

Big-Ticket Items
A minaudière is petite, but it packs a style punch. Fill one with night-out essentials (like lipstick) so she can grab and go after unwrapping.

Our The Handpicked Holiday Gift Shop: Picks by Price Boutique opens Monday, November 24, at 3PM ET.

Remember the holidays when you were younger? Taking laps around the toy store in wide-eyed wonder and mentally assembling your wish list? There were more games, wind-up gadgets, and remote-control gizmos than one kid could ever hope for. Well, Brookstone is kind of like that for grown-ups, thanks to its travel-sized appliances, tech accessories, and other goodies that aim to make everyday life a lot easier, comfier, and more fun. Here, three Rue associates share what they’d love to unwrap this year.

Brookstone Wish List

The Star Cruiser Remote-Control Indoor Helicopter
“Because there’s no better way to drive my coworkers nuts than having a remote-control helicopter buzzing around them.”
– Arash H., Senior Mobile Product Manager

The Steam Bug Travel Steam Iron
“I’ve always loved anything miniature, and this tiny little iron is the cutest possible travel item to keep all of my stuff wrinkle-free.”
– Emma L., Assistant Stylist

Bar10Der 10-in-1 Bartending Tool
“I can consider myself a professional mixologist once I add this to my collection, right? Bring on the bar cart.”
– Kelly H., Social Media Writer

Our Brookstone Boutique opens Monday, December 16, at 11AM ET.

Ah, the stocking – proof that size certainly doesn’t count when it comes to gifting. I personally find the stocking portion to be my favorite part of Christmas morning (along with the coffee-cake portion, of course), and I have a hunch that your loved ones hold the same sentiment.

Using the Get Gifty: Our Holiday Gift Shop as a guide, here are six easy ways to surprise and delight your favorites come present time.

Clockwise, from top left:

Patterned silk tie. Between wedding invites and the workplace, he’ll be beyond grateful for this little silk number.

Diamond studs. It’s little surprises like these that keep the stocking game fun.

iPhone clutch. There’s no way a phone can be misplaced when it’s resting within a little sparkle and shine.

Wine bottle stopper. Mr. Wine Aficionado will be thrilled (and you can bet he’ll share his vino).

Tortoise sunglasses. This logo (hint: it’s a spade) is what Christmas dreams are made of.

Kids’ necklace & bracelet set. Introduce your little lady the art of mixing and matching.

Get Gifty: Our Holiday Gift Shop is now open.
