The best gifts keep on giving. And giving. And giving. Long after mountains of wrapping paper meet old bottles of eggnog, these gifts give and give, day after day.

Here’s 16* of some of my favorite gifts. These creators show up everyday to make the world better. Using their skills, vision, and restless creativity, these people pave the way forward, lead us through the dark, and brighten the path. My world wouldn’t be the same without them.
