gift

as nice as the response was to giving tuesday, i still received requests for a “goodnite irene holiday gift guide.”

ask and you shall receive, you insatiable, credit card maxing, commerce-happy, everyday-santa’s.

so if you just can’t bear to show up empty-handed to the ugly christmas sweater party, here are a few gifts i think are swell:

254480_114739737_product_1024x1024for the dog and book lover these jack russell bookends from biscuit home will be adored; also available in rosey the poodle.

veuve

for the champs lover in your life, add a little more bubble to theirs with personalized veuve clicquot stationery from minnie and emma.

Tostapane-Smeg2

and how cool are these smeg toasters?

this is definitely over-the-top, and most people don’t need a new toaster….but they will dig setting this out on their kitchen counters come christmas morning.

jamand who will pass up a gourmet peanut butter and jam collection from blackberry farm?

who will pass up ANYTHING from blackberry farm?

towel

i was given these japanese hand towels last year as a thank you gift.

who knew hand towels could bring such joy?

they are a gorgeous addition to our powder room, and i can attest a lovely gift to receive.

for the hippie in your life these smudge sticks make for a fun and unusual present.

for that manly man in your life these matterhorn glasses will make their gallant, after-work scotch appear even more strapping with its carved crystal alps.

so there you go…a little gift giving guide courtesy of goodnite irene….

i must admit babbling about stocking stuffers and beauty dust given yesterday’s tragedy seems vulgar and off tempo to say the least.

at the end of the day the real gift we can give each other is our kindness, our attention, and empathy.

love to all,

katie
