The Illuminated Tarot
What’s the hottest gift for that friend who loves a stirring conversation about rising signs and the Scorpios in their lives?

Not only do the cards double as a regular playing card set, but this gilded box comes with a booklet that outlines the symbols on each tarot card. Get your moon phases on!
A Record of My Vinyl
As you settle into a cozy night by the fire with the Charlie Brown Christmas album sprinning on your record player, watch your best friend or boyfriend unwrap A Record of My Vinyl, every record collector’s dream. One part catalog, one part advice guide, this journal gives vinyl store junkies the space to log their curated collection and keep track of their vinyl wishlist for years to come.
Rewordable Card Game
Do you know someone who always whips out a bag of Bananagrams at social gatherings? Yeah, us too, and this Scrabble-meets-Uno card game is bound to be their next party trick. Made to be played by small groups of word nerds and bookworms, it’s a great way to unplug and spend time with friends, no matter where you find yourselves. It’s compact and simple enough that it can easily tote along to book club meetings, picnics in the park, or wine night. It’s like Words With Friends—if it were offline, more fun, and still cool.

It’s that time of year again: when you spend your Saturdays hunting for the best holiday gifts for mom, your new boyfriend, your oldest friend, or that pesky white elephant gift exchange at work.

This year, give the gifts of insight, kindness, and joy with gifts we’ve hand-selected for everyone on your list. From the gilded The Illuminated Tarot card deck to the Wonder-inspired Choose Kind Journal for kids, we’ve got your list covered—and we checked it twice.
