I’m really proud of the work our whole magazine team did on the gift guide for the December issue of Gold Coast. We worked hard to make it special – Nila and I spent hours – days, even – combing through gift ideas to find some of the most unique and functional products possible. Everything on the list is something one or both of us would either buy as a gift or for ourselves.
After we selected the products we wanted to feature, we sorted them into categories – him, her, home, gourmand, tech and stocking stuffers. We then reached out to the companies with product requests so we could shoot the items in-house. Coordinating shipment and delivery of more than 60 products was no small feat. Then, we assisted our photographer Jason on a full-day shoot of the items.
Though I never expected a story titled something as lighthearted as “holiday gift guide” to be one of the harder stories I’ve worked on, I have to say seeing the end result is so gratifying. Here’s a little sneak peek at some photos Jason shot, and be sure to check out the full gift guide, with 109 seriously awesome ideas to start your holiday shopping.
