Our Picks From the International Gift Fair

While most people are busy embracing the last few weeks of summer sunshine, magazine editors and shop owners are already thinking about the holiday season. This week, the New York International Gift Fair took place, and The Nest editors were beyond excited to get the first look at new products from our favorite brands. From pillows and cosmetics bags to lamps and the most impractical knick-knacks, this trade show showcased everything you could possibly need (or want!) for any occasion.

If you want a sneak peek at all of the gifting goodies that await you over the holidays, check out our top five picks from this week’s show.
