Simplicity is always in style around here and come the season of excess, it’s especially apropos. But just because we’re doing the minimalist route doesn’t mean we aren’t buying (and hopefully receiving) some killer gifts this holiday. Ahead, we’ve selected some of our favorite gifts for those who love radical simplicity. Read on!
Subscription to The New Yorker
What’s simpler – and better – than enjoying a good read? Yep, that’s what we thought. A subscription to The New Yorker is a thoughtful gift we’ll be giving this season and one that requires no wrapping paper either. Win, win.
MoMA Glass Water Kettle
This teakettle is a minimalist aesthete’s dream: Simple, stylish, and sophisticated. Give this to anyone who appreciates gorgeous objects… or a good cup of tea.
Everlane Cashmere Mockneck in Black
Nothing beats simple black cashmere: It’s luxurious, it’s versatile, and it’s infinitely wearable. We have our eye on this slightly cropped, mock neck version from Everlane, which feels dually modern and timeless. This is a great gift for a special friend ...or for you. (We won’t tell.)
Pour This Wine Club Subscription
Drinking great wine is undeniably one of life's simple pleasures, and Pour This – launched by sommelier Ashley Ragovin – is ensuring that happens. Unlike some of the more generic wine clubs out there, Pour This is all about connecting its subscribers with high quality wines made from smaller, sustainable producers. Gift this to your drinking partner and reap the benefits.
Lululemon Reversible Yoga Mat
While we can’t exactly “gift” mindfulness, having a good yoga mat is a step in the right direction. This lightweight mat is designed for yogis on the go – perfect for that always-busy friend that needs a bit of Zen.
GiGi New York All In One Bag
Is it a clutch? A pouch? An oversized wallet? It’s all of those things, which is why this bag from GiGi New York is on our list. It’s both multifunctional and enduring, two things you might just say about eXO…
eXO Bio.digital Perfection Moisturizer
Gifting skincare products can be a difficult task, but we've made it blissfully simple. eXO's unique formula adapts to individual skin types, working with your own biology for rapid results. This makes it the perfect gift for anyone -- from your mom to your best friend -- who wants beautiful skin without the fuss.
