The holiday gifting season is already upon us at The Strategist. We’ve been cataloguing the best gifts for moms, dads, teenage girls, van lifers, even ASMRtists. But with December finally (almost) here, it means the holiday party season is also in full swing. You no doubt have plenty of cider-filled gatherings on your calendar, but we’re inviting you to one more: our first-ever (virtual) celebrity white elephant gift exchange. Twenty-five guests, from all corners of New York and beyond, are bringing (and stealing) gifts — and we’ll be unfolding the whole thing here at the Strategist, every day, from December 1 to 25.

For now, we’ll say no more than this: The whole shebang launches tomorrow, and we can’t wait to see you there.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.

Every editorial product is independently selected. If you buy something through our links, New York may earn an affiliate commission.
