It's October, so you know what that means: Mariah's already on repeat, you're wearing sweaters despite global warming, and dropping casual hints as to what you really want this year. (A Vitamix. It's a Vitamix.) It also means that retailers are not-so-sneakily pushing their holiday collections on you and you ain't mad about it. Here's the festive stuff we're already buying in prep for December:

West Elm LED Metal Leaf Garland, $39

Yeah, $175 is a lot for a piece of fabric that is basically a glorified dishrag. But consider this: If you have a nice one, you'll use it for years to come.

It's time someone said it: Most Judaica is just awful. Jewelry designer Marmol Radziner finally has an answer to all that with this elegant wood menorah.
