Great Gifting

Gift giving can be difficult. I feel it is so easy to get stuck in a gifting rut. Thankfully, I find so many talented people through instagram that I feel I have a “one-up” on my skills. While we aren’t close to Christmas, we certainly are approaching the summer months of hostess gifts, backyard parties, and the fact it is bound to be someone’s birthday! So, if you are my friend (you may be seeing these gifts soon), but for the rest of you, I thought you will enjoy some inspiration that will surely leave your recipient as happy as can be! Not to mention, you will have others eyeing your unique finds.

Here’s my lust list of gifts I’m loving right now…


C Buxton Art creates the most jaw dropping and Potted Boxwood worthy designs. I recently received her potted boxwood topiary notecards with my monogrammed initials and I have never received so many compliments on my own thank you cards! Her illustrations are so well done and vary in style. From tote bags to custom espadrilles to flirty and fun iPhone cases, Christina Buxton is a talent that will make any gift the ultimate personal gift.

Beautycounter is my new obsession. Seriously. It is about getting safer products into the hands of everyone. The truth is we don’t know what is in the majority of our personal care products. Beautycounter makes products that are safe, and safety is the one things moms tend to care about. Why not give a beautiful package of safe baby products?! I am a consultant so please visit this page:

Compartes Chocolates

The packaging is incredible (hello Kelly Wearstler) and the flavors will leave your mouth watering (donuts and coffee, honey butter and biscuits…drool).

I LOVE LB Originals. She made the most gorgeous monogrammed napkins for a shower I hosted last January, and she creates the most personally charming devotional pads. These monogrammed disposable paper coffee cups are next on my list! What a fabulous gift for housewarming, hostess, or birthday fun!

A great site featuring wonderful gifts such as a pom fringe throw and a gold pebble dish.

Any golf or tennis pros? I couldn’t think of a more unexpected and thoughtful gift than monogrammed golf and tennis balls by Kristin Henchel.
