In a season of seemingly compulsory consumption, it feels good to give a gift (or gift-to-self) with a story behind it. Whether you're crossing items off your gift list or your wish list, the wares in our gift shop are all dotingly made–most by hand, and all with an eye toward our greater social and environmental wellbeing.

As you browse our editors' picks for the weeks ahead, we invite you to also click over to our designer and feature pages to get to know the people behind these products, and discover what motivates them to approach fashion in the ways that they do.

As always, we've worked toward creating a different, more reflective type of shopping experience. We hope you'll feel, as we do, that beautiful things made for love of craft, love of the planet and love for other people truly reflect the spirit of the season. Happy holidays!
