What are the best, most amazing, always well-received holiday gifts? We asked a number of folks and came up with a short list, and then a longer list! Of course, depending on the ages and interests of your loved ones (and budget considerations), the perfect gift is sometimes challenging. Try to avoid getting too taste specific, like bold patterns in bright colors. Consider what the recipient wears, collects and has an interest in. But if these things are still not helpful, then go for one of the classics.
