2017 Holiday Gift Guide
The tinsel is strewn and the eggnog is chilling…what’s left to do? Ah yes, it’s time to get giving!
We spend most of the year collecting ideas for our annual Holiday Gift Guide, and we get all the holly jolly feels when it finally comes time to share them with you! Keep scrolling for a look at this season’s faves that are sure to delight everyone on your list.
For the Style Icon
Hermès Scarves – We all know those little orange boxes are the stuff dreams are made of, and there’s nothing quite like the silken texture and deep, exquisite hues found in an Hermès scarf. With three sizes to choose from, you’ll have no trouble finding something tailored perfectly for your nearest and dearest. (PS – Did you know they sell bow ties? Stocking stuffer for that special man in your life – check!)
Joe Malone Fragrances – Whether your nose prefers citrus, floral, or spicy, Jo Malone’s got you covered! Deliciously unexpected scents suited to any style, divine packaging, and bottles that can be engraved for a personal touch all add up to gift-giving magic!
Plum Pretty Sugar Robes – The only thing better than lounging around on Sunday is lounging around in a luxurious, uber-stylish robe; and, when it comes to robes, Plum Pretty Sugar’s where it’s at! Perfect for all of those besties, bridesmaids, and mamas-to-be on your list, we love these so much that we actually partnered up with the PPS team to give 2 of them away this season [get all the deets here!].
Sugar Paper Leopard Print Note Set – If you don’t know Sugar Paper, it’s time to get acquainted! The ladies behind the brand are just as stylish as the stationery they create. We can’t get over their playful papers that have garnered attention from editors at Martha Stewart Weddings, VOGUE, In Style and Vanity Fair to name a few. This set is ideal for that thoughtful friend or relative who relishes putting ink to paper.
Diabolo de Cartier Pen – And why not accompany those new pieces from Sugar Paper with a writing instrument that’s just as timeless? Cartier pens are some of the finest, and they’re available in a wealth of finishes including lacquered, leather-encased, mother of pearl, and solid gold. Pick one out that celebrates your writer’s unique sense of style and then pack away the wrapping supplies because there’s no need to wrap when your gift comes in a splendid red box!
Aesop Hair Products – Backed by meticulous research and formulated with only the most exceptional ingredients on the market, Aesop is a one-stop-shop for cleansing, conditioning, and treating locks. From the packaging to the scent, this is a gift your loved ones will appreciate every time they step into the shower!
Kumi Kookoon Eye Mask – The perfect complement to that new Plum Pretty Sugar robe and a luxury gift for your peeps who travel, this light-as-a-feather eye mask is everything they’ll need to kick off 2018 looking fabulously well-rested! We picked one up at Biscuit Home where we can guarantee you’ll find a little something for everyone, even if eye masks aren’t your bag.
Filson Twill Duffle Bag – We all know travel essentials take a beating, and this highly durable, rain-resistant carry-on was developed to stand up to anything thrown its way! With lovely little details like a rustproof brass zipper and interior pockets crafted from dry finish Tin Cloth, it’s a handsome, functional piece that’s sure to enhance anyone’s luggage collection.
Ollo Clip 3-in-1 Lens Set – Ever wonder how tastemakers capture the most amazing iPhone shots? Tools like this bring the magic! The Ollo Clip 3-in-1 lens set can be attached to your iPhone where it offers up fish eye, super-wide, and macro lens options – perfect for the jet-setter who loves to document every move!
Condé Nast Magazine Subscriptions – Stuck on a crowded plane filled with fussy children? We’ve got a cure for that – pop in your ear buds and flip through nonstop moments of beauty a la team Condé Nast. In honor of Cyber Monday, subscriptions are currently $5 for an entire year making this a gift that keeps on giving!
Carry-On Cocktail Kits from W&P – Remember that crowded plane filled with fussy children? This travel companion is here to further ease those troubles! With offerings that include the Aspen Hot Toddy, the Old Fashioned, and the Moscow Mule, your loved ones will be soaring above it all as they sip away in style.
For the Homebody
Amity Home Thomas Throw from Perigold – Okay, guys, 2017 has been the year of Perigold! From exceptional service to a wealth of home décor goodies in every price range, you’re bound to find something that speaks to you! We particularly love their collection of throws and picked up a couple to make this year’s MFI gift-giving season a warm and memorable one.
Casa de Perrin Chloe Gold Rimmed Lowball – Husband and wife turned business partners, Josh and Diana Perrin are straight up geniuses! Following their epic wedding where hundreds of mismatched vintage place settings served up food and bevs, they created Casa de Perrin where you can now rent and purchase the most exquisite collection of tabletop goodies. With a deep red hue and a 24k gold rim, the Chloe Lowball would make an elegant addition to any holiday table. But don’t stop there – check out their vintage rental offerings and scroll through pages of tabletop inspiration that will leave your head spinning!
Angelica Bowls from Interlude Home– The holidays call for glitz and glamour and there’s nothing more glam than these matte gold bowls! Minimalist and chic, they’re the perfect holiday accent. I put these beauties to work holding sprinkles at a Cookies and Cocktails event and they held their own against all of the creative little hands! Although shopping Interlude Home online is only available to retailers and designers, one of our local faves, Mecox, carries the collection. Their team would be more than happy to help you cross a few names off your shopping list!
High Camp Supply – With founders who adhere to the philosophy that “experiences are more valuable than things and a deep seeded memory of something lovely is longer lasting than anything someone can buy,” you know it’s gonna be good! Spoil a loved one with fresh gardenias shipped straight to their door from California, and may we suggest throwing in a bottle of champers too? Because who can resist fresh flowers and bubbly!?
Poetry of Place by Bobby McAlpine – We can’t stop collecting coffee table books. Seriously, it’s a problem…and the latest from Bobby McAlpine is a true gem! Bobby was a guest on our blog series, The Finer Points, and we were #blessed to receive a copy of Poetry of Place before sitting down to chat. We’ll just say this – Bobby is pure inspiration, and every individual who has ever contemplated the deeper meaning of home should experience his latest masterpiece.
Caitlin Wilson Rugs – Honestly, Caitlin Wilson anything, but we’re particularly fond of their floor décor. In addition to each rug being super cute and handcrafted, the pieces also boast a reasonable price tag. So, go ahead and treat someone to a layer of color and texture that will feel at home in nearly any space!
PS – We can personally vouch that they’re comfortable because we spent a morning wrapping gifts on our new friend, the Kira Rug.
Thymes Frasier Fir Gold Candle – We know, we know, candles always seem to make the list, but we have to share our latest obsession! Thymes’ Frasier Fir is a holiday staple and we can’t get over the sassy new gold packaging . We actually picked up loads of these at Kuhl-Linscomb for this week’s Telluride install and we’re loving that Thymes is committed to planting a tree for every product sold from the Frasier Fir collection.
