Bobby, walk us through what the men in our lives need.

First, it’s shoes. Everyone loves shoes. To me, it’s a crowd-pleaser. I would say number one are the Birkenstock Boston clogs in taupe, specifically.

Seems like a classic choice, but an actual true shaving set. With a great razor and more luxurious shaving cream. Super fantastic and instant life upgrade if the man in your life has not tried one.

Another fashion gift I always think people are going to invest in staple accessories for themselves. If you’re not going the designer way and are on a budget, Mango and JW Pei do great statement bags. Fun colors, fun prints. I think they will always add something to an outfit. 

Taking regular, necessary items and making them chicer. For example, makeup bags and travel bags. Shay Mitchell’s brand, Beis, does that really well. Her makeup bag is so good. It fits so well. It’s done in this black leather and it’s TSA-friendly. That’s a perfect gift for everyone.

If you have a higher budget and are willing to splurge, I think you should go on Stock X and find those It sneakers. That if you really love this person and are willing to spend a little bit more on the New Balance 550s or the Adidas Sambas, these trending sneakers. You can make someone very happy.

Glossier released a collab with Olivia RodrigoIt’s not that expensive, it’s a great gift and a small thing. The lip gloss and lip balm… That collaboration would make a great gift for someone who is obsessed with her.

Indya, can we talk about what’s on your home gift guide?

I’m so into the ethos of little luxuries, especially when it comes to home. Home is super personal. It’s a place where you rest your head at night. It’s a place where you recharge.

I think that connecting that and adding that element into gift-giving can really make a gift feel super special. Whether you’re shopping for a co-worker or the mailman or your best friend, candles are always going be a crowd-pleaser.

I do love a Bath and Body Works candle, but I think if you want to upgrade that candle element, then probably go for something like Byredo, Boy Smells, or Diptyque. Those are really tried-and-true brands to go for.

Athena Calderon is one of my favorite people in the design space. She recently collabed with Crate & Barrel for an amazing collection. It’s beautiful. Within that collection, she has a few marble objects that are really fun and beautiful. More specifically, there’s this marble board. It’s a red marble. You can kind of use it as a cheese board, as a display, a catchall. It’s really just whatever you want it to be, and it’s super elevated.

Another brand that I love is Anastasio Home. It makes beautiful marble objects. They’re not just the basic white marble that you see everywhere—they’re a little bit more complex.

I love Hay Design. They have such cute organizational things. Those colorful crates. Those were another Instagram famous called item.

I’m like, How can home decor be so cute? You just want to eat it, but they make those things and they’re not super expensive. They’re probably $10 to $50, depending on what you get.

If you notice that your co-worker has to have their morning coffee or tea, get them a beautiful mug. Choose one that’s made locally by a local ceramicist.
