It's not uncommon to know that one person who (we think) defines sophistication – but with their air of elegance comes the inevitable question of what to gift them this holiday season. This is where Jeremiah Brent comes in to help.
'Some holiday nostalgia left me inspired to curate a gift guide for every age group in your life, from the little ones to the mentors you look up to (and everyone in between),' Jeremiah shared alongside a snapshot by the Christmas tree. It's the latter of these people that are often the hardest to buy for.
'For the effortless friend or colleague that you know, love, and rely on – the one who seamlessly balances work and play,' he describes, and we can picture them exactly.

Our top picks from Jeremiah Brent's gift guide
So, what exactly should we pick up for the figure who seemingly has everything they could need? Jeremiah's guide includes a marble candle vessel to one of the best stovetop kettles we've ever seen – here are our top picks.
There's glassware, and then there's wine vessels designed by artisan master Yoshihiro Nishiyama. The Japanese artist creates handmade glassware hundreds of miles from Tokyo in the Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture, resulting in one-of-a-kind pieces that radiate sophistication.
Designed in Los Angeles, this candle holder is a celebration of Jeremiah’s love of texture, form, and odes to the past. He designed it to stand the test of time, making it the perfect modern heirloom whose thoughtful design will live on through the centuries.
This corkscrew comes courtesy of French cutler Jean Dubost, who designed, shaped, and manufactured a wide range of internationally renowned and coveted flatware for over a century. This piece is an entertainer's staple, created to wow guests for years ahead.
This book is a collection of Aleix Plademunt's project Matter (Spector), his most extensive work to date. It features 603 illustrations and tackles eternal questions regarding our origins and existence.
This kettle showcases the unmistakable Aldo Rossi cone design – something that is constantly present in his architectural creations. It's an example of how his designs covert to modern-day icons.
As mentioned, Jeremiah also penned a gift guide for the young creatives in our lives, alongside children, inspired by his son and daughter. 'Everything is better in miniature form,' he says. 'For me, the most special part of the holidays is crafting memories with Poppy and Oskar – I love seeing the world through their eyes.'
Whoever we're buying for, these suggestions are sure to impress, the hardest part will be deciding which product to go for.
