Little Luxuries: Holiday 2015 Gift Guide [& giveaway!]

What is holiday gifting for, if not for giving a little luxury to your nearest and dearest. My idea of luxury is a gift that you wouldn’t dare purchase for yourself – whether too frivolous, a bit too expensive or simply self-indulgent.

This curated gift list is just that: the items you want to buy for yourself but probably won’t. Let them unwrap one of these and you’ll instantly become a holiday hero.
Bonus: win one of these picks below!
