The North Pole Shifts South

Gifts for everyone on your list

All I want for Christmas is...a Rudolph sweater with a light-up nose?... a blanket with pockets?... a pair of socks with sewn-in heaters?


Uh, no. Banish clichés from your holiday list. Instead, spread joy with treasures that'll be cherished.


Carolina Woman has handpicked these presents based on interests with an emphasis on foodies and kids. While you're in a generous mood, toss in a few items for yourself!
