Great timing, my wife asked me yesterday when “my guy on the internet” was going to publish a guide.

The 2020 guide is the best of all time.

I appreciate the inclusion of Laurie’s recommendations. I set out to get my wife a great pair of earrings this year because earrings are her most worn accessory by far and I wanted to get something she could hand down to our daughter. There are pretty much zero resources I could find for navigating the jewelry world, it’s basically either the big brands we all know or whatever my local shops stock. I would have killed for a Hodinkee-for-jewelry to refer to. I’m filing Laurie’s links for future use.

you started this guide with “gift guides aren’t important”… I’d like to beg to differ. I’m going to step out on a limb here and say most of us use these key companions to our gifting. If it wasn’t for these guides to help me, everyone would be getting Amex gift cards.

These lists are always appreciated. Every year I think I’m finished Christmas shopping by now; every year I notice one or two items that would be perfect for one person or another that I just have to get them. Thank you!

Question, and if you don’t have an answer, that’s okay: any suggestions for kid luggage? My daughter is getting big enough to pull along her own suitcase, and she wants something that has a fun cartoon on it. Of course I’d like it to be built to last a few years at least. Thanks!

What a great list; I’m going to save this for future reference. I really appreciate the inclusion of the prior versions too. Thanks Michael!
