To kick off the holiday season—and the biggest U.S. shopping weekend of the year—we bring you the Masthead’s first Holiday Gift Guide. Masthead members (plus one Atlantic editor) wrote to us about the people in their lives they always struggle to buy gifts for—then we asked Atlantic writers to make a few suggestions. It’s Thanksgiving in the U.S., so we’re taking a few days off, but we’ll be back on Monday. Have a wonderful holiday. This one has always been my favorite.

Register now for our call with John Green. We’re talking to New York Times bestselling author John Green on Monday, November 27, at 1 p.m. EST. Register here. We’ll discuss his new book—our first official Masthead book club selection—Turtles All the Way Down. Even if you haven’t read it, you won’t want to miss this. The book is about universal themes that will resonate for everyone. Email any questions you’d like to ask to Caroline Kitchener at ckitchener@theatlantic.com.
