Happy holiday shopping season! First of all, we realize that we’re cutting this gift guide a little close for those of you who celebrate Hanukkah, and we’re very sorry about that — this year has gotten away from us on multiple fronts, and the holidays sneaking up on us is merely the most recent example. Fingers crossed that it will all still work out — may the shipping odds, to mangle a phrase, be ever in our favor. Second: May you find something that tickles your fancy, or may tickle the fancy of someone you fancy, within! We’ve got everything from baby seals to shiny clutches, so surely something will work for someone. Happy shopping!

Oh, and if you’d like to check back at older Gift Guides for inspiration, you can find them all archived here. Our Afternoon Chat archive also offers an easy way to scroll back to various book recommendation posts, travel tip posts, our discussions of cookbooks and useful apps… so you might find ideas there, too. And all our past shopping posts are here! And if you’re in the mood to talk about worthy charities to support this holiday season, hang on: That is today’s afternoon chat!

As a general housekeeping note: Nothing here was sponsored; our gift guide gift allegiances are ours alone. Like most websites, GFY uses affiliate links where available, which means that we might get a tiny bonus if you click through and some some of these things. We can assure you that all these gifts were personally chosen while we sat around drinking and watching football.
