The Giving Season


Pendleton’s Glacier National Park wool blanket in the iconic pattern that dates back to the early 1900s is just the thing to ward off a winter chill, $199; pendleton-usa.com.

Lucchese elevates women’s rain boots to high fashion with the low-top all-weather Garden Boot. Quality waterproof leather and side goring make the upper flexible, and the thick treads of the lightweight, durable outsole won’t hold on to mud, $195; Lucchese Bootmaker.

Michael Storrings, an award-winning illustrator, is the creative behind this 300-piece puzzle capturing the calm and beauty of San Francisco’s Japanese Tea Garden, $12.99; Into the Garden.

These sturdy acrylic vases in various jewel tones are ideal for anyone who loves fresh flowers, $135 each; Wright At Home.

A pair of onyx boxes from the Claire Crowe Collection showcases earthy colors and beautiful textures. Creedite tops the round box; the square design features slices of agate, $180 each; House Essential.

While we occasionally want to escape to the desert, living there is another issue. Oasis: Modern Desert Homes Around the World by artist iO Tillett Wright is beautifully photographed by Texan Casey Dunn. It transports you to Marfa, of course; Abiquiu in New Mexico; and a home in Mexico where boulders loom inside and out, $28.59; amazon.com.

Houseplants are hot, as indoor “farming” is doable year-round. Monsteras never fail to impress new or experienced growers. Check with your local nursery on availability.
