Latkes to Love

It's not always easy to find a great Hanukkah gift. These bite-size latkes taste like my grandma used to make. Send them to relatives, or heat and serve as party snacks.

2. Throw in the Towel

I'm crazy for this new line of plush, Turkish cotton bath towels. What's unique is that the patterns are modeled after ethnic rugs. I give them to friends to add a pop of color to any bathroom.

3. Happy Feet

My nieces and goddaughters are going to love these sequined boots: They're a fresh update on a popular style, and the faux-shearling lining keeps feet toasty.

4. Cutting Edge

A gift can be the start of a new collection. I give these razor-sharp knives all the time—you can never have too many.

5. Better Off Red

I didn't know I liked red wine until I had this one, coproduced by my friend actor Kyle MacLachlan. The label is reason enough to give a bottle.

6. Prints Charming

These tissue-weight cashmere wraps are the easiest way to add personality to an outfit. They're light enough that the recipient can keep one in her purse.

Children of all ages love these infrared-remote-control helicopters. Good for indoor or outdoor use, they're incredibly nimble.
