As a general rule, we share recommendations for the best products, period – it doesn’t matter when they were released as long as they are exceptionally useful, beautiful, surprising, or worth recommending. Last year, we asked celebrities about the best thing they’ve bought themselves during the pandemic. This year we’ve gone in a different direction, focusing almost entirely on the world of novelties. Here you’ll find a wide assortment of new arrivals for everyone on your list, from knee-high riding boots for the reformed equestrian to a handsome white oak desk organizer for the person who never returns to the office. . Plus, of course, dozens of other ideas, like some paper mache buzzer to a (3,283 piece model of the) Tesla Cybertruck. (You can also see our picks for gifts under $50 and gifts under $200.)
