A Well Appointed Holiday Gift List

I've always appreciated the irony when, the day after giving thanks for what we have, we immediately go out and buy more.  Of course it's under the guise of gifting and giving to others, but if I'm honest there are always a few "...and one for me..."'s that find their way into my shopping baskets.

Tomorrow has been named "Giving Tuesday", and since we're well into the week AFTER Thanksgiving, I'm here to tell you, Shop til' you Drop! Below I've curated a selection of gifts for the individual who's most content when their kitchen is full of family and friends, and who's hearth is never cold. Entertaining always brings me joy, but especially during the holidays. I also appreciate the effort it takes to keep a functioning kitchen and pantry that's ready for guests at a moment's notice.

You may even find a few things for yourself in this list.What better time of the year to fill one's home with those you love, feed them good food, pour good wine.  

Nutmeg goes with everything, but especially during the holiday season.
Nutmeg Grater, in 24 carat gold
Downtime, the cookbook from Nadine Redzepi, wife of famed chef Renee Redzepi 
These are insane, and the large tin will survive the holiday season and beyond.
Italian Black Truffle Almonds
One can never have enough serverware.
Cheese Stones from Farmhouse Pottery

I have these, and they are dream.
Zalto Universal Wine Glasses 
Lyngby Vase 
anything monogrammed... i love these napkins from one of my new favorite etsy shops
The very best maraschino cherries, by Luxardo
Spice Crate from Penzies - We received this as a wedding gift , and I've been buying their spices ever since.
Morning Basket from Zabars - who doesn't love a pass on breakfast, especially during the holidays?
because we can all use a bit more inspiration, Mimi Thorisson's latest cookbook
the very best truffle oil there is on the consumer market, Regalis White Truffle Oil
one of my two favorite winter/holiday candles - smells better than a wood fire, and without the soot.

the other one...equally pleasing - smells like spice and all thats nice, without being noxious.
i came across these over at Town and Country and couldn't resist -
Mr.and Mrs. place card holders by Jonathan Adler
ok, i'm borrowing this from Habitually Chic's gift list
I've just ordered it for myself,  there's very little I enjoy more than good manners
