With his impeccable taste, keen eye for detail, and unique knack for helping people celebrate their individual style, it’s no surprise that fashion expert and TV personality Tan France is also an ace at picking out the perfect present—whether it’s a chunky knit throw, a set of custom-blended coffee beans, or a luxe linen robe that complements its recipient to a T. “When buying a gift, I try to consider who the recipient is, what they have, and what they would want, not just need,” he says. “I love to show that I’ve paid attention to their unique aesthetic.”
