nifty gifts to give 3.0…
Posted: December 10, 2012 Filed under: antiques & trinkets., nifty gifts to give.
can you believe Christmas is 15 days away?!
it seems to come faster & faster with each passing year. i usually have tons of last minute shopping to do but Gil & i bought almost everything on our list this year at Nordstrom on our annual house party day… our discount goes up for one day only so that we can shop our hearts out! our family is lucky to be surrounded by piles of silver boxes on christmas morning. i have just a few things left to pick up then it’s time to start wrapping (i bought the cutest wrapping paper at target, it looks like real black & white herringbone! love!) but i thought i’d share some of my current favorite gift-giving items with you all… enjoy & remember one for them & one for you!
1. diptique candles:
i love diptique everything, their paris made scents are to die for. this cute set includes baies: they’re best selling scent, roses: my favorite & a fig scent that’s just lovely.
2. whiskey rocks:
perfect for whiskey, scotch or bourbon lovers. these soapstone rocks keep the drink perfectly cool with out watering it down the way ice will…
3. poach pods:
poaching an egg julia child style is no easy task but these are a wonder! we use them ALL THE TIME & they’re amazing. perfectly poached eggs everytime & a fab stocking stuffer for your favorite cook.
4. tiffany key ring:
like tiffany says: “good keys need a proper home.” what better home than a sterling silver initialed key ring. for a guy or gal it’s just gorg & perfectly classic.
5. faux fur throw:
you can’t go wrong with faux fur in the winter. who wouldn’t want to snuggle up with one of these & watch elf? i love this restoration hardware beauty & with so many colors to choose from they’ll match anyones style.
6. bamboo keyboard & mouse
how cute is this?! both pc & mac compatible…
7. kate spade gumdrop earrings:
these subtle yet gumdrop sized studs will make any girl light up. i wear my black ones just about everyday, but each of these candy coated colors is a must have.
8. bodum glass coffee cups:
we all have coffee lovers in our lives (probably ourselves included) so it’s a good thing these come in a set of 2. the double-walled hand blown glass is incredibly lightweight yet heatproof… so you can easily hold & sip away.
9. a mini-rex rabbit:
i can’t say enough that bunnies make the BEST pets. they’re oh so cute, silent, they bathe themselves & require no vet visits or shots as long as they’re healthy. they run $10-$20 & are sometimes free. & our bun henry is litter trained & roams free around wtih house without a cage. make sure you find a quality breeder & check out the house rabbit society for some great info on raising rabbits.
10. chalkboard wall planter:
this vertical herb garden brings your kitchen to life while saving space so you can live small… 10 spaces are surrounded by an adorable chalkboard frame that allows you to keep your new herbs freshly labeled.
happy shopping & gifting! be curious!
