Time for our semi-regular chat where you go into the comments and ask for specific recommendations if you need them, and/or provide those recommendations if you are able to do so! Given that we’re heading into a big gift-giving season, it seemed like the time to get into it — we’ve all got someone on our list who sometimes needs a little brainstorming to land on their perfect gift — but also feel free to ask for recommendations for things like great pet-friendly hotels in New York, the best place to find a handyman, delish non-alcoholic wines, or whatever else you might need! (I know we’re got at least one Fug National, for example, who is looking for a wedding dress for her forthcoming courthouse wedding!) Let’s get into it.
