The holidays continue to be both a little strange and extra special. We may still be separated from loved ones, and our traditions may be changed; yet feelings of love and togetherness are more vital than ever.

So our gift guide this year is focused on presents that can be purchased safely and sent to those we can’t be with. It’s focused on gifts that comfort and inspire. On local makers who need our support. And it’s focused on how we’re living now: baking more, spending more time outdoors and snuggling up in front of the TV, among other activities.

In spite of it all, we hope you find some gifts that bring you comfort and joy, so you can have a very happy holiday season.

Whether he's the man who has everything or seems to want for nothing, there's a gift on this list sure to make his Christmas or Hanukkah a bit sweeter.
