There are a few outliers on my list whom shopping for has always been an immobilizing experience. Truthfully, these contented few don’t really want or need anything, so gifting feels trite. But because it’s just rude to show up empty-handed at the holidays, I will be tying a large bow around my current favorite piece of pottery: a blue and white-ish hand thrown, one-of-a-kind pitcher made with love and taste by the Brooklyn ceramicistAmanda Moffat. And to make this pitcher even jollier, I might just fill it with eggnog.$490; John Derian Company, 6 East Second Street, New York, (212) 677-3917.
