LAFCO Library Candle ($60)

This luxurious candle fits the bill for most anyone on your list. The rich fragrance of walnut, green sage and chestnuts will perfume a space for ages, thanks to the 90-hour burn time of the clean soy and paraffin blend.

Le Mystère Sophia Lace Cinnamon Bra ($72) & Bikini ($28), Saxx Buffalo Plaid Boxers ($32)

If you’re close enough with someone to give him or her skivvies, this new Phipps shop has a terrific selection. The lacy bra’s memory foam cups offer a push-up effect, and the sweetheart neckline keeps it sweet, while the low-rise, body-hugging style of the bikinis is subtly sexy. The Saxx men’s boxers are breathable and moisture wicking. The black and red plaid is festive, and the stretchy fit allows for unencumbered movement.
