Gil Walsh’s Annual Holiday Gift Guide

It’s that time of year when we open our homes and our hearts to the ones we hold dear, and the time-honored tradition of exchanging gifts commences. For me, selecting the perfect item for a loved one is like designing their space. Considering their tastes, personality, and proclivities, and distilling that into one gesture requires a high degree of thoughtfulness, yet getting it right is the most rewarding gift of all. Here, I’ve curated several fine things and personal favorites to help you find the perfect present for everyone on your list. 

Happy Gifting, 

Gil Walsh
