“As a jewelry designer, I use gift shopping as an opportunity to find inspiration. I love to browse for antique brooches and pins on eBay and 1stDibs. There is such variety in styles and materials; you can always find something really special and one-of-a-kind.”

“I like to give red Hanky Panky underwear because it’s good luck to wear red pants on New Year’s Eve! It’s always a hit at a White Elephant party.”

“Our Forever bangle is my favorite gift because we have so many iterations; every year we release a new design, so it’s fun to match the color or the pattern to the gift receiver. It’s a classic unisex piece that looks beautiful stacked with other bangles.”

“For me, the best gifts are experiences. Travel opens the mind and spirit and you never forget the extraordinary places. This Christmas we are taking our children on a safari in Africa for the first time: Kenya, then Tanzania, and finally Lamu Island.”

“Don’t skip the packaging! It is just as important as the gift. At Charriol, we make a snowflake ornament that goes on all our holiday packaging, which can be repurposed for your tree. At home, I like to add extra ribbon and a chocolate treat from my favorite Swiss chocolatier, Guillaume Bichet.”
