Check out the best in luxury giving this season with our full list of the latest and greatest in every category from food & spirits and style to wellness, adventure and children’s gifts.


Michter’s 20-year-old Bourbon Weathering the fork in the road at 17 years old, when many barreled whiskeys take a turn for the worse: ethereal, powerful, worth the wait. $450. MICHTERS.COM

Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth Your old Manhattan may seem a lusterless imitation after trying this lip-smacking vermouth. $35. DEANDELUCA.COM

Cook’s Illustrated’s The Science of Good Cooking  The hidden stuff–how high heat develops flavor; how fat makes eggs tender–that underlies the whole activity. $40. COOKSILLUSTRATED.COM

Fiddyment Farms Sea Salt & Malabar Pepper Pistachios Peppery and addictive, from California. $6. FIDDYMENTFARMS.COM

Emanuel Andren Chocolates Andren, scion of generations of Swedish patissiers, fills his confections with everything from Champagne to foraged forest berries. $98 for four. EMANUELANDREN.COM

Goose Creek Rockers These wooden rockers have reportedly found their way to the children of Ivanka Trump, John Travolta, and Victoria Beckham.
