Beauty writer and editor Deanna Pai, one of our fave contributors to The Cut and Glamour, tell us why it’s good to give gifts that are your own size…

Bring back the ’70s single-handedly with this cute corduroy miniskirt. The material is surprisingly stretchy (read: comfy!). Give it to someone who wears your size…so you can eventually borrow it.
Not only do these glasses feel substantial and luxe — no plastic here — but the double-wall design serves as an insulator, which keeps your matcha hot and your white wine, cool. Plus, the liquid appears suspended in the glass, which makes for a cool, unexpected look perfect for a party. Hint: They’re a good gift for a hostess or your social-butterfly sister.

Photographer Darren Almond took photographs of landscapes, from the craggy cliffs of Ireland to hillside waterfalls in Japan, in moonlight — giving them an ethereal, almost spooky look. It’s a good reminder of how wild and mysterious the world can still be.
Thank you, Deanna! XO
