I can’t believe it’s already November, we’ve officially entered the gift-giving season. Throughout the year, I always look for unique, quirky, and beautiful gift ideas that I can give to an amazing hostess, amateur chef, art lover, special mom group, and family (sometimes myself). Enjoying a range of personalities and passions, I try to find things that will excite and entertain, sometimes relating to a favorite food, a new hobby, or simply a new product that I love and think my friends will too.

My new never-leave-home-without-it is a natural-looking lip balm by Rodin that goes on smooth and leaves a lovely luster without feeling gooey. Laughing is my favorite and I found a tea towel that might amuse a few art enthusiast friends. I’m obsessed with the apt prose of Lingua Franca. Their collaboration with the Whitney Museum has created another favorite wearable and a perfect gift for the modern mom and activist friend. And for the hostess with the mostess, I love this cheese serving set and rustic tea towel (personalize it by wrapping it around a favorite wine, candle or soap). Not as good as the Infinity Mirrors at the Broad but the Yayoi Kusama-inspired kokeshi doll is pretty darn cute. Happy shopping!
