Holiday Gift Guide

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.
