Topiaries, candles, notepads, and macarons are my usual hostess gift repertoire. But this year, there are a few new books that would make for more personal and thoughtful presents.
My dear friend’s father-in-law’s memoir, ‘As It Was’, tells the story of being J.P. Morgan’s grandson and his early years in Locust Valley; my current hometown.
Style icon Lee Radziwill’s, ‘Lee’, is a must for my fashion friends—I’m sure it’s loaded with great images.
I missed Bunny Williams’ talk a few weeks ago, but her book, ‘On Garden Style’, is the perfect present for my garden club friends.
