Today, you can snag Kate Spade’s “Tacky Bow” ornament in silver or gold on sale for $18.75. Even if your recipient isn’t as ornament-crazed as I am, she’ll appreciate adorning her tree with this whimsical take on a classic gift topper. I couldn’t resist ordering the gold version for myself this morning! It’s also a great item to stash away for the unexpected gift exchange that always seems to pop up at this time of the year.
On a marginally related note, have you seen Sugar Paper’s holiday collection with Target? I purchased three rolls of the cheerful gift wrap yesterday: mint and gold polka dot, gold stars, and knit hats.
Today’s gift guide is one of my favorites: presents for the person who would rather be anywhere but home! Opt for luxe, practical gifts the recipient can use on the road, like an in-flight organizer, travel flats, or a leather duffle bag. (I actually gave a Floto Imports leather weekender bag to Dave our first year together and loved it so much that I bought one for myself. It has held up beautifully over the years.) But, chances are your loved one can’t be on the road all the time and likely has a 9-to-5 to afford it, In that case, surprise her with trinkets to remind her of a special trip. I’m crazy about this book, a coffee table collection of vintage hotel labels amassed by Gaston-Louis Vuitton. There are also mugs with designs inspired by National Park stickers given to visitors in the ’20s for the outdoorsy traveler. I’d also be remiss if I didn’t mention these incredible cityscape rings by Ola Shekhtman.
