If you’re anything like me, you’re still Christmas shopping!! There might be guests or friends that you’ll see beyond Christmas Day and you still have some time to shop. Here are my best picks below:
Fiber & Water prints:: Fiber and Water is a husband and wife team who love the look of silk screening on burlap (see above). Each item is hand produced in their Maine studio. They also do pillows and tote bags, including monogrammed options. Of course I’m partial to their food-inspired prints above!
Arlington Milne Rose Gold Wallet:::
This was featured on Oprah’s Favorite Things this year! “A gorgeous hybrid of wallet and clutch, this premium leather bag comes in more than 25 vibrant colors and fits credit cards, cash, even a phone. So you can drop your essentials into a tote, or use it alone when you’re traveling light.” — Oprah. Rose gold is all the rage this season and I love the quality and size of this wallet. It’s made from premium leather with black lining and 14-karat light gold plated hardware. They also make gorgeous totes: check out the April Tote in Rose Gold and their variety of coin purses, clutches, jewelry and scarves on Arlington Milne
Krochet Kids::: Krochet Kids was founded by three friends, read their full story here (it’s very intriguing) Krochet Kids – Out Story. Today, over 150 people in Uganda and Peru are working, receiving education, and being mentored toward a brighter future in through their non-profit. The products created abroad have been well received here at home and the collaboration of their staff and beneficiaries around the globe has created a sustainable cycle of employment and empowerment. Their hats are my absolute favorite! They are even HAND SIGNED by the individual who makes your gift. Their sweatshirt The Pocket Hoodie is the SOFTEST I have ever worn in my life. I might have to buy another one because I wear it so much! Shop around on their site, there is definitely more than one item you will fall in love with!
Molton Brown:: This company makes the most luxurious bath and body products. I became a fan when I first tried their “Pink Pepperpod” body wash: very long-lasting, a hint of spice, earthy and musky smells like you just stepped out of a posh luxury hotel. They have a variety of gorgeous holiday gifts. My pick is their Blissful Bathing Set Blissful Bathing Set which includes my favorite Pink Pepperpod plus Blossoming Honeysuckle & White Tea and the Ylang-Ylang. All of their products leave your skin super smooth and soft with unique, indulgent scents that make you feel pampered!
Seya Makeup Case::: Seya Inc makes the best quality makeup cases out there! From rolling make up cases for the professionals to small train cases (for those semi-pros), they have everything to get you organized. This is the perfect gift for anyone who loves makeup when paired with a Sephora gift card. My pick is their Silver Diamond Train Case
Body Deli::: The raw beauty magic happens in the Coachella Valley, California in the city of Palm Desert. The Body Deli handcrafts premium quality skin & haircare products in small batches daily in their state of the art Cosmetic Kitchen. If you know anyone who is a fan of Lush – they will be easily converted with this company. My pick is their Blueberry Line a luscious facial cleanser and scrub! Just try to refrain from eating them!
Derm Store Makeup Brushes::: You can have all the best makeup but without the right brushes, it’s pointless! My favorite skincare site, Dermstore has a gorgeous set of rose gold brushes Dermstore Rose Gold Brush Set – limited edition in a rose gold “envelope style” clutch – tres chic! The secret to a flawless face with an airbrushed finish is all about the application! This includes 5 professional-grade cosmetic brushes to apply everything from eyeshadow and foundation to blush, bronzer and everything in between. More durable than natural fibers, their synthetic bristles retain their shape and are suitable for all skin types, even sensitive. They’re also easier to clean and last longer than typical brushes.
