Ever wish you had a holiday elf to help you with your endless to-do list? Well, now you’ve got something even better: Texture. In our Holiday Headquarters, you’ll find the tastiest recipes, the merriest cocktails and the brightest gift ideas (yes, even for your humbuggy tween!).


Here are a few easy ways to unwrap the holiday content in the app:

• Visit our Ultimate 2015 Holiday Guide on the Highlights screen. We’re regularly updating our savvy shopping suggestions, holiday party how-tos and Hanukkah hacks, as well as the latest on the season’s hottest flicks (can anyone say Star Wars?).

• Use the app’s search function to peruse more than 100 magazine gift guides. Shopping for someone or something specific? Narrow that down further, to “gift guide tech” or “gift guide home.”
