Nate Berkus Has an Amazing Gift Idea for Everyone You Know
From your boss to your mother-in-law
You’ve made your list and checked it twice. Too bad you’re still desperately seeking the perfect gift for your mother-in-law/sister/13-year-old niece. Nate Berkus to the rescue! We gave the design extraordinaire (who has his own gorgeous line at Target) a roster of the most difficult people to shop for and—cue the Christmas miracle—he delivered a genius gift idea for each one.
Your Classy Mother-in-Law: Gorgeous Baubles
This luxe pendant—featuring a rose-cut rainbow moonstone—is something she’ll treasure and wear often. (Yes, we know it’s pricey, but she did birth your soul mate.)
Irene Neuwirth ($680)
Your Favorite Aunt: A Fancy Candle
Adorned with gold stars, this limited edition (and extra-large) candle burns for up to 150 hours—and can be repurposed as a planter when it’s done.
Your Beloved Babysitter: A Pretty Pouch
Unique and a lifesaver when it comes to keeping everything organized—just like her.
Your On-the-Go Sister: A Sensible Tote
Hey, if she has to run from soccer practice to the grocery store, at least she’ll look fancy while doing it.
Your Dog Walker: A Cozy Scarf
To help keep him (or her) warm on those extra-long walks.
Your Too-Cool-For-School Niece: A Great Read
Nocturnals is the first installment of a mystery series for middle schoolers about a crew of animals who keep disappearing without a trace. It’ll keep her occupied for hours.

This natural home spritz will restore her classroom to its fresh scent.
Your Tireless Mom: A Massage
Because nothing says “treat yo’self” quite like a spa treatment.

Your Colorist: A Coffee Table Book
This tome is a keeper—one that she can have on hand for clients to read while she works.
Your Dad, Who Has Literally Everything: Suede Slippers
These shoes are a splurge, but they’re truly one of a kind and feature handmade workmanship he can appreciate.
Belgian Shoes ($440)
Your Meticulous Housekeeper: A Steam Clothing Care System
OK, so this no-iron system is a gift for you—but also a major time-saver for her.
Your Jet-setter Brother-in-Law: A Leather Tech Carrier
Nothing beats a sleek (and monogrammed) organization system that keeps every cord in its proper place.

Your Boss, Who’s On Time for Every Meeting: A Nice Bottle of Booze
Come on, she earned this.
