How do you celebrate the holidays?
I am very family-oriented; all holidays are spent creating memories with my family. One of my favorite holiday traditions is that everyone wears Christmas-themed pajamas on Christmas Eve and gathers in the living room to watch movies.

What’s the most memorable gift you’ve ever received?
I’ve received so many meaningful gifts over the years, but one of my most-prized possessions is a birthday card that my father gave me. It’s a good reminder about what’s most important when it comes to gift-giving: a good gift, big or small, is all about the thought that goes into it. Rather than writing a short card, take a minute to tell the recipient about how much they mean to you or share your favorite memory with them from the year.

It’s always tough to make gift decisions. How did you choose their gifts?
The Pebble Grain Zip Pod Backpack is sleek, modern and minimal just like my sister’s personal style so that’s what drew me to that bag for her. My father travels often so I knew he would love a classic durable traveling bag like the Florentine Medium Duffle. Finally, the Beacon Domed Satchel is elegant, modern, classic and ever so functional—it can be worn casually or dressed-up. My cousin likes functional pieces that can carry her from day to night, so I thought it was a good fit for her.

Everyone has that one loved one that’s impossible to shop for. Who is that for you?
My sister! She is very detail-oriented and particular about what she likes. I’m observant though so she’s always happy with my choices.

We’re all about taking care of our loved ones, but there’s nothing like a good gift for ourselves. What Dooney & Bourke gift would you choose for yourself?
Tough call. I love Dooney & Bourke’s Pebbled Grain Collection, especially the vintage line. I also really like the structure, detail and smoothness of the Beacon Collection. I’d be very happy with a satchel from either collection.
