For the past two years, CityLab has given you on-brand recommendations for the urbanists in your life, tailored specifically to the crises of the day, whether it be a pandemic or a supply chain snarl. This year we’re back with variations on the theme that are a little more distraction-oriented.
Give the gift of getting lost in a video game, a painting kit or a cross-country train trip. Pamper your friends and family with home goods they can enjoy in between having adventures in the outside world. Whether your crew considers themselves Frank Lloyd Wright disciples or Brutalist babes, Amtrak Joes or cycling bros, we hope you’ll find a few ideas for everybody on your list.
