From the sublime to the fanciful to straight-up laugh-out-loud (in a good way), the coffee table book, For the Love of Shoes, featuring what can only be called works of art from the usual suspects (Louboutin, Choo, Blahnik) as well as Asian designers Aoi Kotsuhiroi, Kermit Tesoro, Noritaka Tatehana and YSL head shoe designer Chau Har Lee, is a no-brainer for any shoe lover (read: all women).

Cologne may be cliché, but Ermenegildo Zegna’s uomo, with its exclusive Zegna Bergamot citrus and the floral Violettyne Captive, is so good, you may want to steal a spritz on occasion.

Everyone loves sweet treats, but a box of 24 macarons from ‘Lette, with flavors like rose, mint, almond and violet cassis (perfumed with the slightest hint of floral), delivered to your door — now that’s indulgent.

Help support the Somaly Mam Foundation with chic silk krama scarves woven by survivors of sex trafficking. According to the foundation, the repetitive nature of weaving fabric “provides women with a sense of comfort and security in structure and routine, engendering a feeling of pride and accomplishment.” Not only does 100 percent of the proceeds go to the foundation, each sale helps exploited women pave a life of independence and personal empowerment. Now that’s a real gift.
