We’re rounding up our favorite holiday picks this year for our annual gift guide.  Inspired by all the things you love about The James, including personalization, conscious living and a love of traveling, we hope you love our top gift ideas as much as we do for the loved ones in your life.

For the Kids
PUBLIC Sprout C1 Kid’s Bike
One of the most popular amenities during the warmer months are our PUBLIC bikes, available complimentary for guests to use. PUBLIC has also released a bike, Sprout, for kids who are in need of their first “big kid” bicycle.  The simple, stylish and durable design combined with the kid-friendly height makes getting on and off a breeze. The Sprout bike can be had for $169.00 with two sizes available.

For the Cook
Cook’s Books Set
As beautiful as they are functional, there’s something classic and nostalgic at the same time about this set of five essential cookbooks for any burgeoning or experienced cook. From James Beard’s American Cookery to the Joy of Cooking, something tells us that these will be passed down for generations to come. Purchase the set for $250.

For the Traveler
V.Backup
Leave the worries of batteries behind with Vianel’s personalized V.Backup. The handy backup device delivers an extra 27 hours of talk time for your smartphone and conveniently comes equipped with two USB ports. It’s compatible with phones, tablets and computers and is crafted with anodized aluminum and wrapped in lizard skin. There’s no chicer battery to gift to those constantly on-the-go.  All yours for $120.

For the Health Conscious
GFF Magazine
For a gift that will last the whole year, give the health-conscious loved one in your life a subscription to GFF magazine.  A quarterly publication for food lovers, GFF celebrates “good food” that happens to be “gluten free”.  Each collectible issue is filled with photos and recipes from top chefs and cookbook authors that are easy to master. A yearlong subscription (four issues) is $35.
