A Colorful roundup for holiday giving

As the holidays and gift-giving deadlines quickly approach, my eye is of course drawn to the most colorful delights around.  Just for fun, here is my short list of goodies for all of your favorite people, including you!

From Hermès, one of my favorite perfume houses, this colorful collection is ideal for travel, for layering, for experimenting.  And, that signature orange box is heaven!  You can find it at Nordstrom, along with a smaller 5-piece set.


Because I know you don't want to ever show up empty-handed, here's a delightful set of colorful matches, just right to go with the candle of your choice, from Portmanteau Papers.  Ultra-affordable and highly unusual...two of my favorite qualities in gifts!  

The Museum of Modern Art Jumping Point Calendar becomes a rainbow-hued work of art with every passing day.  It's good for any aged recipient, at a terrific price of less than $20.


For the budding journal-keeper or the already super-organized, Paper Source has this lovely set of color-coded journals, ready to record by the date or by the topic.  They also offer a gorgeous selection of all kinds of lovely things that make fantastic stocking stuffers.  I love their papers and notepads especially and their gift wrap department is to die for!    

And for those who will be lighting Hanukkah candles, a gift of unusual hand-dipped tapers will always be welcome.  They can be found them at The Jewish Museum of New York among other places.

For the young, or young at heart, a rainbow of colorful eyeshadows might be just the thing!  These are from Urban Decay and can be found at Sephora, currently on sale for $39.

I love nothing more than to receive a practical gift and dish towels certainly fill the bill!  These colorful beauties, from Anthropologie would brighten anyone's kitchen through the dark days of winter. 

For the chocolate lovers (yes, that means you!) this little library from Vosges is sure to please.  Make sure you buy more than just one....because after all this shopping, you certainly deserve a gift too! 

As always, I hope you'll use these ideas to inspire but always shop locally first.   Happy Holidays!   xo - Amy
