Their Wish Is Our Command

How do we know what an ordinary, building-obsessed 6-year-old, a mod-design-loving architect, or a wine-collecting septuagenarian wants for the holidays? We asked them! And we did the same for 179 other people found at random on the streets. Then we went back out and handpicked the perfect gifts for each.


I want money, chocolate, a new winter coat, and a driver’s license.
Althea Sullycole, 18, Student
