The holidays are here again and I wanted to share my second annual gift guide especially for the wonderful women in our lives. Nothing is more inspiring than finding perfect presents for the loved ones who are there for us year-round.
For the friend with the fabulous, “character-laden” home:
Rejuvenation Titan Exterior Door Plate: This Mid Century Modern Entry Set gives a little nod to the Hollywood Hills
Three-ball hanging vase from CB2. Purchase one as a little “happy” or gift her with many to make a statement above her table.
Graphic Image Vogue Covers: A classic coffee table read with beautiful gold and black binding.
For the hostess who never ceases to impress.
Vintage flatware handles are repurposed as charming cheese markers each stamped with favorite flavors.
These gold-laced measuring hedgies are useful and double as darling conversation pieces.
These Sterling Crystal Cluster Studs help complete our hostess’s elegant and timeless look.
I love the simplicity of this tasting plate from Uncommon Goods. Pair with a variety of olive oils or tapenades.
For the Sexy, Creative Single living in the big city.
This NARS Edie gift set is the perfect present to give your “It Girl” friend. Presented in an authentic 16mm film canister, NARS celebrates Sedgwick’s iconic style with superstar essentials. What makes this bundle fantastic, aside from Warhol’s most popular muse on the packaging, is the wearability of the hues. They are timeless for day or night.
Carine Roitfeld Irreverent. Ok, If this book were under my tree I would scream with happiness. Roitfeld is a creative director and fashion icon, who has been credited with launching Tom Ford’s career at Gucci as well as turning French Vogue into the powerhouse it is today. This book is filled with her photography collaborations and tear sheets.
Chelsea Charles Galaxy Bangle Golden: Mixing metals is encouraged and this dainty bracelet offers gold, rose and sterling all in one cuff. Galaxy Golden is one of my most popular styles.
For the foxy, multi-tasking Mommy-to-Be.
Clarin’s Beautiful Beginnings Pregnancy Kit. In order to stay happy during this time of tumultuous change with our growing bodies, it’s important to make pampering a priority. These travel-sized formulas soften, firm, tone and improve elasticity—reinforcing skin’s resistance to stretch marks and stress.
Creative Curator! Citrus Lane Gift Boxes. Here’s how it works. You’ll get a box every month filled with cute and practical products recommended by real moms. Tell them your child’s birthdate (up to 3 years) and they’ll choose the rest.
Baby cloud beanie and jumper. My sister, Arianne, showed me this on Pinterest and it has the be one of the sweetest little outfits I’ve ever seen. The cloud pattern comes in multiple colors including blue, green, red and pink.
Sometimes ambiance can brighten her mood by dimming the room. These cost conscious Mercury votive holders by West Elm are the perfect way to set the scene for relaxation after a long day. Mix and match is a must.
For the graceful, dedicated dancer or pilates enthusiast
Dancers who read between rehearsals and pilates instruction will enjoy LOVED by Kimberly Novosel. It’s a coming of age story with a theme many women can relate to “Sometimes the wrong decisions lead us to the right places and people.” The young author is a rising star. I recently purchased this from Amazon and am having a hard time putting it down.
This year I partnered with Suffolk Pointe Company, a leading producer of luxury Pointe shoes in the US, Canada and Europe, to create Count Me Healthy dance and ballet bracelets. Just in time for recital gifting season, dancers can count their goals and accomplishments on our hand-etched, silver bracelets. The jewelry is available wherever Suffolk pointe shoes are sold.
Creative Curator! Twistband Best of Birchbox Sample Set is a mane-friendly way to secure your locks during dance, yoga, jogging or serious web surfing.
For your always positive and upbeat Mom
Neiman Marcus Chocolate-dipped potato chips. I couldn’t help adding this specifically for my mom who loves nothing more than her chips and dark chocolate
The intoxicating scent and subtle packaging of this Jason Wu Orchid Rain Candle makes the perfect addition to her cozy family room or entry hall.
Sophia leather bag by Katie Kalsi. She’ll love the hand painted, interchangeable straps and pewter metallic pebble leather.
Wishing you the happiest of holidays! Wanted to share a picture of a recent photo shoot with Today’s Charlotte Woman magazine. Excited for my little package due late February. – CC
