1. Arbor Ardor
These dramatic, if untraditional, holiday trees were first crafted by Matt Bliss’s grandfather Lawrence “Bud” Stoecker in the 1960s. Today, it remains a family business and Stoecker’s signature still graces every tree. A portion of all sales are donated to the Alzheimer’s Foundation in his name, and the trees have celebrated Christmas in some of the most iconic mid-century homes in the country as well as the Colorado Governor’s Mansion.

2. A Dove to Love
The holiday offerings from Jonathan Adler are always fun (the Dachshund Menorah is a favorite), but we love the simplicity and beauty of this delicate dove in Adler’s signature white porcelain.

5. Let It Snow
One cutter, 18 cookies. We like those numbers. The Lékué snowflake cookie cutter means you’ll have almost as many sugar-frosted snowflakes inside as you have icy droplets falling outside.

6. Festival of Lights
Artist Melanie Dankowicz crafts menorahs (and dreidels, too) from laser-cut stainless steel, and the results are breathtaking works of art that dance with abstract swirls or flowers.
