Gift Guide: For Her


(1) I’ve had these bags by Valhalla pinned for ages now. A very Brooklyn bag. (And P.S. Did you know you can buy Etsy gift cards now?)
(2) The Gilmore Girls Complete Series on DVD–because they’re not on Hulu or Netflix, darn it!
(3) Round out her collection with still-relevant, out-of-print issues of Domino Magazine.
(4) A beautiful Turkish Towel.
(5) Classic riding Boots will be a huge hit. It’s a thrill to open the giant box and get that whiff of leather. And these will last forever.
(6) These will come in handy when the weather warms up: A set of waxed canvas Panniers for riding bikes together.
(7) The new Eames coffee table book.
(8) I think the LemLem Split Scarf is gorgeous. But it’s the sort of thing I would never splurge on myself. I’m guessing there are many others out there who would love this just as much as I would.
(9) A gold-dotted dish for keeping her earrings in.
(10) Gorgeous coasters. I don’t actually like to make people use coasters, but for these might require an exception.
(11) A perfectly simple, gold, Michael Kors Women’s watch (that’s big enough to fit on a man’s wrist).

(12) All of the best cafes in New York seemed to use these Classic Italian Cappucino Cups.
(13) Cashmere socks  Completely decadent.
(14) Swedish Hasbeens 877 Zip It Emy Boots. These might be really for me.
(15) A trendy necklace for wearing with t-shirts and jeans.
Wishing you a lovely...

Let’s Discuss

    I have a pair of the Zip It Emy boots – best purchase I made in a long time. I didn’t think they’d be so comfortable right out of the box, but they were. I think your gift guides are great!

  2. had my eye on that eames coffee table book too. love these lists today! ed still loves his bose headphones that aron recommended last year. :)

      Thanks and that’s awesome! I’m actually wearing Aron’s pair right now–he has the over the ear and I have the on-ear. They’re hard to beat. xo

  3. I’ve banned myself from shopping at Target for the past several months, simply because of the fact that I always end up buying more than the one item I originally walk in to purchase. Well, I broke my Target ban a couple of weeks ago when I was there helping a friend run her errands. I walked around the corner to find Gilmore Girls priced at only $8 a season. $8! I audibly gasped, and then snatched every season I don’t own as fast as I could. I then turn to find a woman staring at me like I was insane. Slightly embarrassing, but worth breaking my Target ban over. Seeing Gilmore Girls on your wish list makes me feel a little less crazy : )

      Haha! I often feel like the town we’ve moved to is straight outta GG and it makes me want to watch it ALL the time. So odd that they aren’t online. You’re not crazy at all, in my humble opinion.

  4. i love up in the air somewhere! gosh those dishes are to die for. <3 and i've loved valhalla's bags for SO long, i really need to just bite the bullet and get one…they are amazing! let us know if that one makes its way to you…i want lots of photos so i can live vicariously! haha.

  5. I’m so happily surprised to see Gilmore Girls on your list! It is a FANTASTIC show! I haven’t watched it for a long time; I think it’s about time I make my way through all the episodes again!

    Have you watched Parenthood? Lauren Graham is in it, too, and it is AMAZING!

  6. I love that little gold dish! It looks perfect for delicate necklaces and earrings. And that Turkish towel looks like it’s making its way onto my list this year! :) Great gift guide–thank you for the suggestions!

    My love for you & this blog is tenfold with the Gilmore Girls gift idea! I got the series set two years ago for Christmas and it was so fun to watch all the episodes again with new eyes :) The only problem is that it comes in this hilariously bad puffy DVD case. But I will overlook to drink a cup of coffee and spend the afternoon with Luke and Lorelai
