N Magazine’s treasure trove of gifts for the 2019 holiday season.
With only twelve days left until Christmas, the 12 days of Christmas just got a whole lot more… real. And Hanukkah? We’re in the single digit countdown (and we already feel like we’re burning the candle at both ends). So if you’re like us and are still trying to check people off your gift list in under two weeks time, our advice is to skip all the guesswork of sizes and colors and get them what they really want – something from the Grey Lady! Below is our gift to you: a guide of foolproof, festive, and fun gifts that will delight every Nantucket-lover on your list.
This Nantucket Red ribbon belt from Murray’s will make a great gift for any guy on your list. Simple and ready to pair with any pair of pants (sorry, #dadjoke), he’ll be excited to wear it for years to come. $55.00
Nantucket Looms‘ entire holiday shop is top-notch, but if we had to pick one favorite it would be this handwoven alpaca & silk wrap. Any luxury-loving-lady would want to be cozied up in this accessory, but it’s the very-Nantucket ‘fog gray’ color that really has us sold. $400.00
Leslie Linsley has captured the essence of an island Noel in her latest book (aptly titled) Christmas on Nantucket. From photos of yesteryear to new island traditions, leafing through this gem will transport any longtime Nantucket-lover back to the shores of the Grey Lady. Grab an autographed copy from Nantucket Book Partners to make it extra special. $29.95
This might be the ultimate ACK trifecta. Nantucket-based artist Meredith Hanson’s hydrangea handiwork on a Beau & Ro Bag at The Skinny Dip. Does it get more Nantucket beach-ready than that? (P.S. There’s only 1 left in stock!) $158.00
Help make their dorm room feel like home with the sweet-smelling scent of Sconset. Nantucket Candle Co. uses local beeswax and donates part of their proceeds to the Nantucket Conservation Foundation, but all your student will be thinking about is the feeling of being on-island when they’re really only steps away from their dining hall. $65.00
What better way to toast to their new marriage than with a holiday cocktail book? We love this one from 28 Centre Pointe, and it goes perfectly with this mixologist cocktail jug and stirrer. Cheers! $19.95
7. For the person you-just-can’t-quite-figure-out:
Everyone loves getting a gift card. They’re the perfect size, right color, and instant good-time creator. We recommend Lemon Press for coffee addicts, CRU Oyster Bar for luxury lovers, and Petrichor Wine Bar for oenophiles.
