Gifts for Just About Anyone

Bespoke Baubles

Jalpa Pandit has never had to advertise her custom jewelry business, because word of mouth has done that for her. Her creations are original and breathtakingly exquisite. Pandit, who spent over 20 years developing jewelry for large houses such as David Yurman and Tiffany, specializes in repurposing old pieces that need updating and will sort through someone’s mess of tangled chains and broken earrings, then come up with a personalized portfolio of sketches and ideas. Her clients end up falling in love with their old jewels all over again—but first they tend to fall for Pandit, who is intuitive, kind, and patient. $500 and up

Go Green
There has arguably never been a more important time to nurture trees, and Little Saps makes it easy and festive by sending a one- to two-year-old robust seedling that’s ready to be planted. Each Little Sap comes with an inspirational quote or phrase (“All things grow with love!”), which might sound, um, sappy—but isn’t that what the holidays are for? $45 for Holiday Large Tin

Safety First
For the design-forward someone on your list, how about a gift that’s as attractive as it is practical? This Safe-T Brass luxury fire extinguisher will look like a piece of sculpture sitting next to the hearth, but it is made according to the strictest safety standards and can be counted on if it ever needs to be used. $249

Attention, Chocoholics
How is it that we at BJT—certified chocolate aficionados—had never heard of Hilliard’s Chocolates? The company has been making mouthwatering candy since 1924, which is approximately how many seconds it took for our staff to devour multiple boxes of Hilliard’s peppermint bark, almond toffee crunch, and craft beer caramels. $30 and up for Christmas specialties

Electric Slide
The Tesla Roadster is not available yet, but according to Elon Musk, it will incorporate Space X technology that will make it the fastest car (electric or gas) on the market, with 0-to-60 acceleration in an amazing 1.9 seconds. You can reserve one by wiring a $50K refundable down payment to Telsa. About $200,000

Craving Salt
Trust us on this one: a gift of Falksalt is a gift that keeps giving. This 12-can pack includes four flavors of sea salt flakes—natural, citron, smoked, and wild garlic—and will tickle the taste buds of any gourmand. We’ve been known to eat a few flakes directly out of the container. $40

Blue Inside
This sterling silver flowerpot from Tiffany might be perfect for that person on your list who is impossible to buy for. It’s whimsical and chic at the same time and can be used for knickknacks or cut flowers. (We couldn’t stomach the thought of filling it with dirt and seeds.) About $1,475

Carry That Weight
For the insomniac on your list: It may be time to try a weighted blanket, which users say reduces anxiety and adds comfort. We recommend Rocabi, which offers a wide selection of blankets with different weights and fabrics. P.S. We’ve found that weighted blankets are also a great way to calm children who tend to be worriers at nighttime or have trouble focusing on homework. About $200
