FOR THE LUXURY LOVER….
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.
3509 Northside Parkway N.W.
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.
3500 Peachtree Road N.E.
World travelers will appreciate this hightech carry on, and design enthusiasts will welcome the stylish dark brown leather and nickel zippers. It converts seamlessly from a 2-wheeled suitcase to a 3-wheeled trolley and is compact enough to fit in most overhead compartments.
3400 Around Lenox Road N.E.
Everyone on your list will love this versatile bottle, featuring a double-wall, insulated stainless steel design to keep beverages toasty for 12 hours and chilly for up to 24. It holds 15 ounces and comes in six colors (sangria, peacock, mint, pear, coral and polar).
2537 Piedmont Road N.E.
Give the gift of comfort for chilly winter days with this 3-part set, sized perfectly for a stocking. Let the lucky recipient pick a festive favorite from pumpkin spice, holiday fruit (pomegranate) and holly jolly (wassail, sans alcohol).
2099 Peachtree Road N.W.
Keep your little princess warm and chic with this adorable designer cape, made of soft European wool and featuring a hood for extra protection on windy days. For a more everyday look, this reversible puffer jacket fits the bill, with wind- and water-resistant nylon stuffed with soft down. They’re both stylish to keep kids cozy when Buckhead turns chilly.
4209 Roswell Road
This fun, interactive video game is designed for ages 7 through 14 (and really, anyone who’s young at heart) and works with PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Wii U. Lego fans will love assembling the 269 pieces, including figures and vehicles.
3500 Peachtree Road
You can find this Atlanta-based distillery’s ultra-smooth, unaged “white” whiskey on any number of Buckhead drink menus, but the cool bottle and ultra-smooth flavor make it a must-give for any home cocktail enthusiasts.
2357 Peachtree Road N.W.
If you’re going for an elegant present, this decadent cake fits the bill. Presented in a sleek black box, the cake’s three Valrhona chocolate layers are separated by coatings of bitter caramel and orange ganache, infused with Grand Marnier.
