2009’s Easy and Elegant Life Holiday Gift Guide: M. Lane’s Epic

If you’re anything at all like me, you are frequently stumped for gifts. Mrs. E. is a great gifter and thrifty to boot. In her spirit and in light of these economic times™, I’ve asked a few of my favourite people to compile a quick list of luxurious little presents all under USD$100, $50 and $25 in case you really have to splash out.

Today M. Lane of The Epic comes to our rescue with his suggestions. Mr. Lane knows a thing or two about livin’, as Mr. Sinatra would say and I think that his choices convey a healthy sense of luxury, style and practicality. Taken together, these seem like the foundation for the perfect evening, train trip or hotel stay.
