A highly-curated guide to gift-giving from some of our
most trusted sources.

The holiday season may be in full swing, but many of us are still casting about for unique gift ideas. What to do when you’ve exhausted all your resources, your go-to gift is sold out or you need to find that perfectly unexpected present for the one who has everything? Departures called on ten of our favorite people—experts whose advice and taste we regularly rely on—to divulge their picks for the season. From artist John Derian’s favorite Armenian bakery to the Taffin ring that’s on interior decorator Muriel Brandolini’s wish list this year, they offer their insights into the pleasures of giving—and receiving.
