All sorts of inexpensive gift excitement, starting with this classic Stendig calendar, which I’d love to own. It’s as of-the-moment now as it was in when it was designed by the great Massimo Vignelli back in 1966.
Soap & Paper Factory has such pretty packaging that you scarcely have to wrap your gifts—and this lotion is really good, and smells brilliantly of neroli.
This ceramic tumbler by Helen Levi is just so pretty and handmade-looking.
This wee Le Creuset espresso mug couldn’t be much cuter, and it’s cheap enough that you can buy a whole set.
A really quite elegant small vase.
The differently-colored handles on these steak knives are so graphically appealing.
A poppy red duffel is unexpected and fun.
A stainless steel flask that comes with a canvas carrier: so streamlined and elegant.
This universal five-in-one adaptor may not be the sexiest gift, but I own it and can attest to its brilliance. Plus, it’s cute.
I feel like a bread basket is a very civilized thing to own, and aspire to such things.
These bright gloves are an instant good mood.
Just the simplest brass cuff—but so chic, especially in a stack.
These Minnetonka slippers just ooze coziness.
This graphite feather is so arresting in black.
I got this book, a look back at the iconic brand behind many a GOACA’s adolescent fashion obsession, a while back and am so enjoying it. It’s got posters in the back, which is a fun bonus, and will add a lively graphic punch to any coffee table it’s placed on.
A compact, space-age clock from the MoMa design store.
This beanie comes in New York, Paris, and London versions, too.
This passport case looks fancier than it is.
I can’t help it, and am not certain why, but I love this tumbler so damn much.
Such a stunning Georg Jensen wine stopper.
