Finding the perfect gift is half the fun for The Laundress co-founders Gwen and Lindsey. Here, they share the gifts they’ll be giving to those who made their nice list this year.


FOR HER:

1. BURBANK SHAWL | KIT & ACE
This luxurious cashmere shawl is the perfect travel companion for the jet-setter in your life.

2. IN THE COMPANY OF WOMEN | GRACE BONNEY
Lindsey loves giving this book to inspirational women in her life. Needless to say, she’s given a lot of them.

3. OFF THE SHOULDER COVER-UP DRESS | MARA HOFFMAN
You can only gift so many sweaters. This bright, beautifully printed cover-up is a great gift for someone on their way to escape the winter chill in warmer weather. There are matching swimsuits, too!

4. CASHMERE MERINO JOGGER | LUNYA
What could be more luxurious than lounging in your Merino cashmere? This is a gift every girl will want to unwrap.

5. LIMITED EDITION VERY BERRY SET | DEBORAH LIPPMANN
This gift set includes a gorgeous range of berry colored lacquers – from the brightest to the deepest shades. The full-sized polishes are perfect stocking stuffers. 

6. KNIFE SET | SOINTU
Gwen loves to give the gift of a good knife, but always with a penny attached. The blade symbolizes the severing of a relationship and since pennies are considered good luck, the superstitious belief is that the penny protects the relationship.

FOR HIM:

7. CUSTOM HAT | SATYA TWENA
Each hat is designed by the client and custom-made in the heart of New York City by hat artisans in one of the last hat factories in the United States. Talk about a special gift!

8. NON-IRON SHIRT | TWILLORY
We all strive to make ironing an enjoyable task but prefer to avoid it at all costs. Gift the man in your life freedom to roam wrinkle-free in this tailored shirt.

9. SWEET BIRCH DEEP MUSCLE RUB | NATUROPATHICA
Gwen loves this warming rub for tired legs and joints, muscles, and tendons pre and post workout.

10. MEN’S GARMENT CARE KIT | THE LAUNDRESS
This kit was designed exclusively for men, including everything to keep dress shirts, suits, cuffs, and collars in tip top shape.

11. COLLAPSABLE BIKE HELMET | THE MORPHER
This genius design folds up to fit in your laptop bag.

FOR KIDS:

12. CHRISTMAS KARL LAGERFELD DOLL | KAHRI
Grown-ups and little ones will love this doll featuring original watercolor illustration by KahriAnne Kerr printed on linen/cotton canvas. Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Anna Wintour, Iris Apfel, and more also available.

13. BROADWAY PUPPET THEATER | LAND OF NOD
Lindsey loves to give her kids (ages 3 and 5) toys that can engage the whole family, and this puppet theater provides hours of entertainment.

14. ANGEL WING FOOTIE | MARIE-CHANTAL
This cozy velour footie with angel wings is a truly special gift for a new mom or new baby. It’s perfect for photo ops and comes in a keepsake box.

15. GIANT COLORING POSTER OF NEW YORK | OMY KIDS
This giant coloring page can be used on the wall, the floor, or as a tablecloth.

16. THIS IS NEW YORK | MIROSLAV SASEK
First published in 1960 and now updated for the 21st Century, the beautiful drawings and interesting tidbits in this book tell kids (and adults) the story of New York.

17. PEPPERMINT SNOW TUBE | BIG MOUTH
Because who doesn’t want to sled on a supersized peppermint-candy shaped tube this winter?
