One of the best gifts I received this year was so incredibly simple and easy to recreate. A friend bought an antique wooden crate and filled it with several different herbs. You can find these kinds of crates at pretty much any flea or antiques market (she found this one at Sunbury Antiques Market outside of London) and fill it with the herbs of your choice. It's a nice, practical decoration that you can easily recreate as a gift for friends.
iomoi, one of our "greatest hits" from last year has rolled out even more wonderful and completely customizable products this year. The personalized lucite trays and canvas notebooks are super cute. Enter "iomoi4goop" to receive a 20% discount for purchases over $100 between now and November 17.
Lucite trays - prices start at $150; Canvas Notebook starts at $58.
This is one of my favorite gifts to give friends. It's a retro handset that you connect to your mobile phone. Because I spend so much time on the phone, I worry about cell phone radiation, and this is a great way to avoid it. Enter "GOOP2BUY419" for a 10% discount on your purchase.
Retro handset, $39.96 each
This season, The Elder Statesman, purveyor of understated luxury cashmere and alpaca goods is rolling out his custom service. Customers wanting to have bespoke goods made—from socks, to sweaters, to blankets—can make contact via email for a consultation. Once you have a consultation booked, you can choose a style (from their vast catalog) and take a look at swatches to come up with a design together.
Just two of the kinds of things The Elder Statesman can do, price upon request.
Made in England, these pillowcases are hand-stitched with the name, number or message of your choice. A friend had some made for my kids last year and I've held onto the idea ever since.
Prices from £38

The workshop's high quality, handmade knives come in both carbon and stainless steel and the handles come in walnut (from an ancient tree in PA) or in several vibrant colors. Twice a week, Cut Brooklyn posts the new knives available here. I gave one to a chef friend last year and she's hooked.
Prices range between $250 for a paring knife and $600 for a chef's knife.
My friend Thatcher Wine (he took me to Eddie Murphy's Raw at Madison Square Garden in 1987—that's how far we go back) runs an incredibly unique and bespoke service for book collectors, providing design, organization, custom covering, maintenance services, and more for library/book collections. Uniquely, he also works with customers to come up with a design to wrap their entire collection. If you're not quite there yet, he also sells small themed collections. Current favorites are his exquisite, vellum Jane Austen Set, and his Cook's Book Set.
