For the cost-conscious interior decorator

For the international appetite

For the timely jewelry lover

 Flashing new bling post- holiday is a rite of passage for both women and men. From the luxurious (like Omega’s stunning Ladymatic watch) to the trendy (Pandora charm bracelets), a piece of stunning jewelry is a no-fail classic gift.

For the hophead

Beer nerds can satisfy their love of the brew with membership in Home Brewing’s Adventures Mug Club, a bi-monthly delivery service of beer recipe kits and matching pint glasses. It’ll be way more satisfying than that mug you were eyeing.
