23 Holiday Presents Lucky Editors Give Every Year

"If the person celebrates Christmas—child or adult, male or female—they will love The Father Christmas Letters by J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien wrote (and gorgeously, gorgeously illustrated) these letters to his kids every year, pretending to be Father Christmas. They are beautiful and hilarious. Hoard a stack of them and hand them out to everyone! They're on Amazon and Barnes & Noble—but from sellers, not in print right now. But not wildly expensive!" - Jean Godfrey-June, executive beauty director
