GIFTS: Yes, Already

We know, we know — it isn’t even Halloween yet. But our news feeds are already starting to fill up with fun gift ideas, so we’re going to start including a few of them here each week. We’ll try to keep things under $100. (If you see something we should include, let us know in the comments!)

This week: Four new things we wouldn’t mind unwrapping:

  • This Is Ear Hustle, a new book from the hosts of the award-winning Ear Hustle podcast.

  • Woman Made, a book that celebrates 200+ female product designers from 50+ countries because design is not, and has never been, a man’s world.

  • Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace, a new book about LA’s famous disco rollerskating venue, with contributions from Cher, Laura Dern, and other big names. Perfect for those who still love to rock on 8 wheels. 

  • Finally, what do you give the person who has everything, including expensive taste? Hermès nail polish.
