  • The Best Gift of All
  • I love gift-giving; there's no better feeling than seeing your friends/family/loved ones unwrap a gift tailored for them, but it's not always so easy.

    I've spent weeks on end planning the perfect gift, sitting at my desk head to hand with crumpled paper around me and embarrassingly specific Amazon searches on my screen. What I never find challenging, however, is compiling my own wish list. Knowing what to get music fans, festivalgoers, and travelers this season is my forté, and I'm sharing it with you.

    I may not know what to buy your fishing-obsessed uncle or Twihard cousin, but I have your best friend who has been to every festival on the east coast and your boyfriend who needs to be up-to-date on all the travel gear covered.

    Happy Holidays!

    If you don't find quite what you're looking for in this year's list, check out last year's gift guide. It may be a year old, but there are items included that I'm still hoping to receive and/or have bought for others.
