Holiday Gift List: Accessories

Penned by molly in Accessories, Design

Are you stumped? I am totally stumped. Holiday shopping makes me lose my mind. Here are a few things for guys and dolls to get us started:

Silver collar bones from Thomas Pink will keep shirts looking crisp. Those plastic collar stays melt and bend in the wash and don’t do the job after a while. Metal stays will bring any shirt collar back to life (also available at Thomas Pink SF and NYC).

The Reisenthel Collapsible European Market Tote would make for a chic dash to the corner store. Can’t you just see it brimming with kale and cut flowers at a farmer’s market? The basket has a frame so things are less likely to get smashed. I asked Santa to bring me one.

I love fancy dishes you can actually use. This set of eight nesting lotus bowls is gorgeous and practical. The bowls are dishwasher-safe so they’ll get used often. Available at Gump’s, class-y!

Old Navy has the cutest lounge wear and pajamas for women right now. The tie-front nightshirt in chastity pink (!!) is adorable. Fleece robes are always a winner — more colors available in stores. I bought one of these robes in green because I was freezing my tuchas off most mornings. Problem solved. Also available for men.

I just bought one of these reproduction World War II posters to hang in my workroom. They’re hand-screened and are available in four colors. Inspirational San Francisco design blogger sfgirlbybay is responsible.

Huzzah!

Honeycomb Lamp

This lamp is so awesome. I saw it and thought “Genius! Why didn’t I think of that?!” Because my name’s not Kouichi Okamoto, that’s why. All you need is one of those corded light bulb fixture thingies and voila! Working lamp. I bet it glows a lovely red. It’s for sale at accessories purveyor Poketo (who I profiled last year).

I’ve long had a sweet spot for pop-open-and-clip paper honeycomb-style decorations. I remember we had a turkey for Thanksgiving and maybe a snowman for the holidays? They also come in pineapple (which I love), wedding bell and snowflake formations. Oooh, I wonder if I could make a skirt in the honeycomb paper style. I’d need someone to clip me in!
