If you’re not quite sure what to buy, we’ve got a few suggestions:
Pass the Peas
Bring the whole family together with this tasty word game! It’s a perfect gift to challenge your child’s spelling skills.
Biobu by Ekobo
Give these eco-conscious bowl sets to that little foodie. Designed by Boo Louis and made from sustainable bamboo.
Eric the Memo Elephant
Eric is cute as well as functional. He’s the perfect gift for the person who has everything, but might need a friendly reminder.
Know someone who is a word-game enthusiast? They probably already have Scrabble, but do they have the classic word game coasters?
Lila by Marilynne Robinson
Any voracious reader will have this highly anticipated novel on their wish list. It’s bound to become an American classic.
Roll the dice on this gift. The master chef will love it.
