Aly's Newsletter: Happy Friday!
Lots of new stories pending for the weekend!
TGI-EFFING-F! This week has been so busy I haven’t even found time to make an appointment to get my brows threaded. Which takes 10 minutes. And is in walking distance.
Such is life during the holidays!
But it is Friday! And I’m taking a break tonight to - maybe yes - get my brows done - and then go with a friend to my favorite local Brooklyn spot for homemade fresh pasta and wine. Because, you guys, I’ve earned it this week.
Here’s what I’m working on!
All of my holiday gift guides for this month for Forbes have been wrapped up with the exception of, I’m still accepting pitches for best mail-order holiday dinners (or just fancy dinners). Stuff like lobster, steaks, etc that you can have shipped to their door.
Gifts for tweens: I'm trying to channel my inner tween on this one. As soon as I'm done living on caffeine and wine, that is.
Best hostess gift ideas: I'm going to be doing this one with a thanksgiving, not Christmas edge, if that helps with pitching!
Best/most notable books of 2021 (I'm actually updating THIS story https://spy.com/articles/lifestyle/gifts/best-books-2021-1202733059/) - if that gives you a feel for what I'm looking for.
Best Hanukkah gift ideas - from major retailers please!
Best Christmas tree ORNAMENTS you can buy online (yes just did a tree one. but you need to put something ON that tree, no?)
Best ROBES. I’m rounding up great cozy, comfy, luxe robes to gift this holiday season.
Best Hanukkah books for kids (please be sure to include a retail link when you pitch!)
For any of these, please make my life easier by starting a new email thread and changing the subject of the email when pitching. Email is email@example.com
