Newell Turner Interview on Holiday Gifts

To Give and to Receive: Top Gift Choices From House Beautiful's Editor-in-Chief, Newell Turner

With decades of experience covering design and architecture, House Beautiful Editor-in-Chief Newell Turner is a leading authority in the world of home design. With an excellent eye for style, Newell was a perfect person to ask about holiday gifting.

CasaSugar: What are your top gifts to give this year?

Newell Turner: I have a lot of nephews and nieces, so I try to find one thing that I can tweak with color or design for each person. It makes shopping less confusing and hectic. I've used ideas like electronic toys, camping hammocks, and (affordable) cashmere in the past. They're all growing up, so I'm thinking about having some fun with monograms this year. Have you been to Chris Burch's new concept shop C. Wonder on Spring Street in New York? Great things. Fantastic colors. Amazing prices. And, they have a monogramming program!

CS: What's on your personal holiday wish list?


NT: I always love a pair of cuff links (with special meaning) — really anything with a personal thought behind it.
