This one's for the reveler; the eaters, the imbibers, the home cooks and the grillmasters. Cheers, y'all—to getting lit this Christmas.
This sartorially-inclined guide is for the social butterfly, the super Mom, the sisters and like-a-sisters. We kept a forgivable fit in mind for giving, so most of these pieces are easy on and off, one-size-fits-all kinds of finds.
We scoured the South, the web and our beau's brains for the kind of stuff the guys in your life actually want to receive, then field tested it for approval with the guys in our own lives.
Some girls aren't all that girly. They prefer Lucchese to Louboutin and Manhattans to Moscow Mules. This gift list is for the girl who's in touch with her feminine side ... but still kills her own spiders.
