Gifts of Note

Ideas for the holiday giving season.

Diptyque Reed diffusers are my preferred scent vehicle since I woke up one morning and found a scented candle burning from the night before that I failed to blow out. Yikes.
Anya Hindmarch Okay, so Dairy Milk is my favorite chocolate. That’s why I like this cheeky handbag.
West Of Breakfast The height of bedroom elegance is either silk or white cotton pajamas.
Banana Republic Now that I am a dog grandmother, I actually care about dog gifts.
Anya Hindmarch Another cheeky accessory. This one gets stuck to the back of your phone to carry credit cards or your ID.
Club Monaco This is technically a menswear belt, however, I see it as unisex. If you are wearing a monochromatic outfit, there are times when you will not want to break it up with the jewelry pop that a gold or silver belt buckle provides. For a clean line, this black hardware is perfect. Women, you are likely somewhere between a 30-36 in menswear belt sizing.
Wolf & Badger I love tartans for holiday times but what to do when the season changes? This happy looking multicolor blanket is all season friendly.
Club Monaco Everyone needs to reach into their handbag or back pocket this minute and assess their current wallet situation. I am sure it needs freshening. Salvatore Ferragamo, below.

Totême This dress could be perfect on your next holiday to somewhere warm. It could double as a day dress and coverup. Or, it would be a perfect as a hedge in your wardrobe to looking crisp next summer.
Target These cozy little shorts are super mushy comfortable. Since they aren’t full length they aren’t hot and overwhelming.
William Sonoma I don’t drink wine but I do serve it. A wine coaster preserves table cloths and lends a finished look to a well dressed table.
Birdies This is such a fun gift because these are not likely to be purchased by anyone for themselves.
William Sonoma I was unaware of the varieties of popcorn until I saw this. Maybe this isn’t as welcome as chocolate for some, but then again, I am a popcorn person so I think it’s cool.
William Sonoma I added this for you people who think my popcorn suggestion isn’t very fun.

At A Glance, November

Things I find notable for the month.

Mango I love a cropped tweed jacket with jeans or over a long dress. I may or may not have purchased this for someone’s Christmas gift. Shh.
I found DKF Estate Jewelry on Instagram, @dkfarnum. I have been blown away by the stunning jewelry pieces featured. After a bit of digging, I learned that DKF’s attention to detail and incredible sourcing makes them a premier source for those with a discerning eye. Dana Kraus’ excellent sensibility is a must follow.
As the holidays approach, don’t forget to sharpen your knives. I was reminded of this recently when I had two quite severe cuts on my hands from working with a dull knife. I used a mail away knife sharpener person. They mail you the materials for you to send your knives to them, and back, for a fixed fee. Within a week my knives were back and expertly sharpened.
Clarks Shoes, When I was in college I took an overnight train to Scotland and met Nathan Clark, the great grandson of Clarks Shoes, and founder of the Desert Boot. He was lovely, and I have favored Clarks Shoes since then. This Wallabee style is shearling lined. It will look so cool, keeping you warm.
Alberta Ferretti I don’t know if you are having trouble finding quality belts without big logos. The flower detail on this belt would elevate a simple outfit. It is jewelry for the waist.
Kellogg’s All Bran Buds happens to taste really good–that is may help with other things is just a plus.
Dualit, I am keenly aware of how quickly my small appliances age no matter how well I take care of them. This toaster would up my counter game. It is a bit pricey.
Vegan, at Times, I have made many of Jessica Seinfeld’s recipes so I look forward to her newest release.
&Daughter, Though I am a bit of a neutrals person, I love a pop of red.
