I read somewhere recently that Christmas is to interior designers what tax season is to accountants. haha! Certainly for those of us who blog it certainly can be. I don’t know where you are, but I know that in at least 2/3 of the US the weather has absolutely sucked recently. Snow. Cold. If you live somewhere warm, I don’t want to hear how you have to “pretend” that it’s cold outside. Okay? However, for the rest of us shut-ins, why not avoid the crowds? Let your fingers do the shopping! Herewith is my list for some stylish, affordable (everything is $25 or less) last-minute gifts which should make it before the big day. Please note the links are embedded in the photos. (hopefully! if you click on a photo you’ll get to where you need to be if you want to get back, just hit your back arrow) If I had all my ducks in a row, I’d be set up so that I’d get a commission, but I’m not. Well… maybe one day!
This sounds like a great book for finding interesting places to visit in NYC– From Anthropologie.
I’m a sucker for anything Greek Key. I’m not sure about the finish here, but it looks like it could be repainted in something else, if you don’t like the way it is– From One King’s Lane.
How pretty and distinctive are these gold playing cards, if someone on your list is a card shark. From Anthropologie
I absolutely love this adorable little box that’s at One King’s Lane. They have TONS of last minute gift ideas on there!
I thought these vintage-y looking salt and pepper shakers from Pottery Barn were pretty cool.
Who doesn’t like hot chocolate? From Williams-Sonoma
A simple little monogrammed cutting board. Perfect for serving things like cheese or cutting up lemons; that sort of thing. Also from Williams-Sonoma.
Another pretty little platter from Pottery Barn.
I love this charming monogrammed key ring locket! Also from Pottery Barn
I like the title of this cookbook. When in doubt, a book is always a good bet! From Anthropologie
So, are candles! This one is still under $25 and from Anthropologie and when the candle burns out, they will have a pretty little canister to put things in. From Anthropologie
My grandmother had a collection of cut crystal perfume holders. It’s one of my favorite childhood memories and I found out from one of my first cousins that it was hers too. Again from Anthropologie. They have a great selection of gifts!
