Shoppist’s 25 Gifts of Christmas: Day 18

The coziest gift ever: an iron fire pit.

Now that the holidays are officially upon us, we here at Shoppist are in full gifting mode. Each day this month, we’ll unveil our 25 top gifts to buy in Philly this season. (Trust us: We’ve shopped everywhere to bring you the best of the best.)

It’s admittedly a bit unconventional , but we promise you’ll get more use out of it than you’d ever imagined. Terrain’s iron fire pit bowl is simple in design, easy to use and small enough (11 inches high, 30 inches in diameter) to fit in sprawling suburban backyards or tinier city patios. Throw a few rough wood benches or low-slung chairs around it, bring out the wool blankets, and host your next winter soiree—or cozy date night—around a roaring fire, complete with roasting marshmallows and mugs of hot chocolate, naturally.

The Details: Iron Fire Pit Bowl, $448 at Terrain, Glen Mills.
