The Perfect Hostess Gift

Lots of people are travelling this week for the holiday.  If you are visiting friends or family – make sure you bring a little hostess gift to show your appreciation.

I stopped by to the C Wonder boutique in Soho yesterday and loved just about everything in there.  They have bright bold home accessories (and clothing, bags, shoes etc) at a very good price point.  I think these monogrammed decorative plates make a great hostess gift!

I also love their selection of stationery, which comes wrapped in a pretty bow with a little charm.

A pen and paper set makes a good gift because it really isn’t something you would think to buy for youself… I really do love just about anything from Iomoi.

Jonathan Adler is another great place to start.  I am lucky enough to have easy access to his boutique, but they have a great selection online… these coasters are one of my favorites – they are even cuter in person!

The easiest and most fail proof gift is anything edible.  My favorite is this gourmet chocolate covered popcorn by funky chunky – it is delish and comes in a pretty glass jar that is perfect for giving.

What is the best hostess gift you have ever received? What is your favorite gift to give?


Nursery Design

Almost everything for my little one’s nursery has been ordered, now I just have to wait for it to arrive.  I cleared out my old office and can’t wait to fill it with all my new purchases!
