26 Slam Dunk Gift Ideas From the Women of Second Life

I am lucky enough to host our podcast, Second Life, where each week I speak with founders, creatives, CEOs, authors, leaders, and industry pioneers who are creating next-level companies, best-selling products, must-read books, and so much more. Through them, I have had the good fortune of discovering some pretty incredible items that also happen to make excellent gifts. From the book you need to buy your best friend to sure-to-be-loved beauty stocking stuffers, here are a few of my favorite things I found via Second Life, all of which are worthy of being on your holiday shopping list.

As the newly appointed creative director of Puma, June Ambrose is debuting some killer new designs for the brand… but not until 2021.
