It's Giving Season!

One of my favorite things about this time of year is searching for the perfect gift for those I love. I always feel like I have failed when I just go the gift card route because it is not as personal - not as "them" - whoever they may be.

Sometimes I will simply find the item first, and then assign it's new owner. There is just a world full of great finds out there and I could endlessly be on the internet searching for them.

Here are a few things I currently have my eye on:

The Barn House

Okay - I have a thing for dish towels. I want to buy them all of the time. They may be boring to some, but not to me. I think these are adorable would look great in a few kitchens I know.

Have any friends or family who love mid-century decor? These 60's liquor bottles would be perfect. With a bottle for bourbon, rye and scotch, you can fulfill all of your Mad Men-drinking-in-the-office fantasies.

How cute is this spoon rest? I love it. I don't have a spoon rest in my kitchen because usually I don't like them, but this may change my mind. Perhaps this will be a little gift to myself? (This is always a problem at Christmas, isn't it???)


Aren't these great? I love how simple and versatile they are. Etsy, Etsy - you get me every time.

Pottery Barn

For that wine lover in your life: the wine holder basket. I imagine giving this full of a few of your favorite bottles, some good bread and even better cheese.

What are these, you ask? Cashmere-wrapped hand warmers. Sound expensive? They're not. For fifteen dollars, you can provide someone with warm hands for the winter season. I know a few people who could use these for sure.

What about you? Any fun little finds you want to share?


  1. Cashmere hand warmers? Oh ya!


  2. Great post! I spent about 15 minutes trying to choose my holiday dish towels in HomeGoods last weekend... I'm the same way. Love that spoon rest too! Happy Thanksgiving!



  3. ooh I LOVE dish towels too, and that spoon rest is adorable. I've been on the hunt for a cute one for a long while.
