Cover Story
The Gift Finder 2012

Our annual guide to triumphing over holiday-giving anxiety while picking just the right present for even the hardest to please: juggling balls, decorative matches, beard oil, and other stocking stuffers; 60 gifts for friends and family of every passion, including a domed saltwater aquarium for your pet-whisperer brother, a screen-printed leather clutch for your fashion-girl best friend, and much more; five New Yorkers confess their dream presents—and hear about some real-world alternatives; outsourcing your way to a Norman Rockwell–worthy Christmas; sea-salt-sprinkled-chocolate-chip, hazelnut shortbread, and twelve other delectable cookies; and how to help six Sandy-ravaged neighborhoods.
