Its that time of year that you think thoughtful thoughts about your dearest and how you can bring a smile to their face. I have a little short cut for you, a list of my favorite things for most everyone on the list.
The Garage Collective has many unique gift items that feel specifically from Cali. My favorites are the Seeing Eye Tea Towel and the Black Dot Bell (so memorable to mark the holiday, no one else will think of it). A signet ring personalized with her zodiac sign from Maison Mezcal? yes please. Minimalist jewelry is my jam and these agJc line hoop earrings are lovely (teacher or friend gift). I can never have enough cuff bracelets and I dig the organic shape of this brass cuff from Spark + Pepper. A statement stoneware necklace by Philo K is like wow.
I'm impressed with look and price of the marble chess set from CB2. It would make a nice gift for an older kid who is ready to meet your match. And his or her parents will approve of the look of the game set in their home. For the younger child, the coloring activity book Coloring Without Borders is a work of art that will engage them for hours. My kids love it and the proceeds go to the efforts of Families Without Borders. For the babies, I'm obsessed with any animal head from Maisonette. The llama is adorable and gender neutral. Your other baby deserves a stylish upgrade to a rust colored mud cloth dog bed by Back Up Designs.
For the home: Art prints are personal, but I don't think you can go wrong with a Hotel Magique poster or a stunning Laura Berger print. Any host or hostess will do back flips for an extra large black cutting board from Kate Lester Home. The new Bestia cookbook will inspire them to invite you back for a more intimate dinner. Surf & Stay will take them on a mini vacation. I cannot think of one person who would not be jazzed about a Lief windowpane cashemere throw. The sweetest little bud vase. Cork & Wood Candle holders.
Norden stoneware Joshua Tree candle for the last minute any gift.
