|Holiday Gifts |
BY CORKY POLLAN
Is your holiday-gift list turning out to be more complicated than a tax return? Corky steers you to the cool and the classy in all price brackets, from 50 ideas under $50 (a watch made of Legos, anyone?) to five under $5,000 (a Cartier diamond pendant? A Gucci fireplace set?). And for the truly generous, some surprising things $100,000 will buy (a school library, no less).
A Store for All Reasons
Designer boutiques are taking high style to new lengths, with an eye to not only what you're wearing but how you're living: Coach has branched out from preppy handbags to chamois ottomans and sofas; DKNY's new flagship sells salsa CDs and Ducati bikes alongside sweaters and skirts. Four stores that offer more for stylish giving.
