Of course there are many goodies outside of the world of beauty to indulge in so these are my picks (and perhaps some of my own heart’s desires) for life’s other luxuries.
Getting art is always fun, people don’t always think of it for themselves and while you do have to know the person’s taste well enough to take a stab at it, there are lots of great emerging artist that have affordable original art on or really, really affordable prints which make a person’s living space so much more wonderful. I LOVE Beth Hoeckel’s collage art because her pieces are nostalgic, kind of edgy and weird, but also ladylike. You can also try these, these, and these.
A little Jonathan Adler glam never hurt anyone and this adorable brass pony is perfect for beside ring and earring holding or as an adornment to a bookcase. Love him. (20% off whole site until 12/22!)
I love throwing Ban.do hearts on any outfit or bag that need a little something special. I wear my red and gold ones year round and they just came out with the matte black mini which is perfect for when I want some understated heart-y flair.
Ted Baker has been making these gorgeous scarf capes and I love them for their elegant drama that feels very unique. These suckers go fast and this one happens to be on sale.
I want all of the Byredo perfumes because they’re all fantastic, all special, nuances, and none cliched “perfumey” and what people hate about perfume. Gypsy Water is the cult favorite so a good one to start with because it’s amazing but I already have and love it so I’m going for Sunday Cologne next (uni-sex btw).
How pretty is the Jayson Home Athena Tray? It can be used as a object d’art or as a catch all for keys or small items but it’s just a pretty as an addition to anyone’s home.
Everything from the new home line A Sunny Afternoon is fantastic. These are the serving boards which are so beautifully made and do any kitchen proud but for a stylish lady who loves her home, consider the tea towels and the awesome table runners too ( I have the polka dot and adore it).
Fun brass bar earrings for a unexpected twist!
This is hands down the most beautiful candle that was ever made, ever! Jonathan Adler Muse Candle is ceramic, it glows beautifully, but I can stare at those amazing little faces forever. This is a fantastic gift, I love giving this one. (20% off whole site until 12/22!)
How amazing are these gold rimmed black and white mugs? Just one or a set of six, I adore them!
