Our annual holiday shopping guide is here: File under Christmas gifts, cute cadeaux, out of place presents. We really did scour the internets for you and we're sure there is something for everyone in your life here. If there isn't, you should complain: info [at] wherevermag [dot] com . In the meantime, Jingle Bells Jingle Bells.
What's Christmas without Creams, Cashmere & Candles? In order to love, and care for, your loved ones, you have to take care of yourself. That's why this section works two ways. 1) Buy them for yourself so you are better equipped to love your lovelies, or 2) buy them for your loved ones so they are better equipped to take care of you!
Who doesn't love the idea of a luxurious bath? That's what the Barr-Co soak is for. It says you care about their well being, you want them to feel...soft. We love everything Tocca makes and this rollerball travel trio is a good intro. Argan Oil is passé in some circles, but the stuff works, and will hydrate you on your fifteen hour flight or on your road trip through death valley--we think Shea Terra make the greatest oils, so we're going with them. Dr. Alkaitis makes raw vegan skincare so #success. As for the candle, Diptyque is a crowd pleaser. We may not approve of beards (hence the grandpa razor set for a close shave), but if he's going to have one, he should groom it so we threw in the Billy Jealousy beard kit. The Moores & Giles hanging toiletries kit is for a cultivated touch, whether it's because he already is or because you want him to me. Oh, and the hipster/ TSA friendly tooth paste? You know this is a travel magazine, right? Honestly, everyone here wants one of those sets for their toiletry bags.
Do you want to be the one to get the writer another cute but predictable notebook? No, and we don't want you to be either. These are better:
Everything Terrapin makes is edgy, so there's that. The rest of these are a combination of ways to help with writers block, and ways to help writers feel more writerly--all good things, we promise. If all else fails, you can always send them on a writers retreat to Carmel by-the-sea. Better yet, we have some recommended vacation retreats at the bottom of this page.
It's almost 2016 and that's the future (after all the DeLorean made an appearance in midtown Manhattan in October so technically you should be wearing two ties by now) so you and all your loved ones should have great music and great pictures, no excuses. Oh, and they shouldn't have to lose their luggage either. Also, wearables are a thing now, we're all meant to get with the program.
the great out doorsy type
The handspresso was the best thing on the market until Wacaco released it's MiniPresso. A great gift for the coffee snob on the go. We like the picnic basket for the idea of retro camping more than anything else, not sure how practical it actually is, but it looks great and are all gifts meant to be practical? Existential questions. BioLite makes camping magic happen by not only creating fire but charging your iPhone, because why camp if you can't selfie?
house & home
For the grownups in your life who don't live in dirty cities, and can afford to care about their abodes.
The best gift, is the gift of freedom. Or is it time? Either way it usually comes in an envelope and includes a flight itinerary. Here's where we would send our loved ones (or, you know, go with them)
