Welcome to Nifty, Gifty Holidays, our guide for all the little, magical ways we make the season sparkle. Today, we’re tapping our amazing buyers for all of the special things that are striking their fancy this season.
When your job requires you to shop for a living, you develop a keen eye for standout products that are a cut above. Our talented buying team—yes, those same trusty elves that bring you all of the beautiful home and kitchen helpers we sell on this site—can sniff out a bestseller from a mile away. It seemed only natural, then, that we hit them up for the wish list items they're hoping Santa will leave under the tree this holiday. (In some cases, they're not even waiting for Santa!)

I have been eyeing online jewelry store Mejuri for a few months now, and finally purchased over Black Friday weekend (they had a 20 percent off code running and felt like it was time to treat myself). I love how timeless the designs are and that prices are not insane. I'm hoping these earrings will be as high quality and lovely as they look!

I'm really into a few things right now: 1. earth tones, 2. pantsuits, and 3. corduroy. So when I saw them all together in this outfit, I decided to take the plunge and get the coordinated set. It's a lot of LOOK, but love the idea of being playful with fashion and wearing something that makes me smile. It'll definitely be my new go-to for any important meetings or upcoming winter trade shows.

I've had my eye on this brew kettle for a while! It will be a great upgrade to my existing 8-gallon pot for beer brewing. And with the false bottom, I will also be able to steam tamales for Christmas!
Induction cooktops are so precise. When it comes to home brewing, preparing delicate sauces, and melting chocolate, they're the way to go. I'm looking forward to treating myself to this guy this holiday.
