Whether stepping out meticulously dressed, or throwing a cocktail party with a festive theme, this master creative knows a thing or two about what looks good (have you seen his Instagram?). After giving us his tips and tricks for throwing an unrivaled, forever talked about cocktail party (see our December issue), we asked Patrick Janelle to share the gifts he always loves to get and give.
