GIFT GUIDE | Black & White (with a pop!)





Topping off this week in Gift Guides is my favorite theme: black & white (often with a POP of color!).  Here we go…and stay tuned for a few wapping ideas so your gift looks great on the inside and out!

1. Rasymatto Manual Umbrella from Marimekko: Give the gift that will make any rainy day better.
2. 2015 DIY Calendar from Paper Source: This calendar encourages its recipient to get a little crafty each month. Use leftover DIY supplies in the office to embellish this blank canvas.
3. Design a Weekender from Kate Spade Saturday: How fun is this customized weekender in the cutest colors and patterns, plus a monogram?! Get a gift card and let them design their own, it will arrive just in time for Spring Break trips.
4. Work Hard, be Nice to People Poster from Etsy: For any one would loves a motivational plaque, this poster’s super fun typography and nice reminder is a perfect present for all your entrepreneurial friends.
5. Patterned Blanket Scarf from American Eagle:  Anyone living in a cool weather winter area will swoon over one of these. I am in love with AEO’s blanket scarves (my collection is growing) and BTW, they serve as a super compliment collector.
6. NIKE Blazer Mid Sneaker from Jcrew: Honestly, how cool is the Nike Blazer? I have been eyeing up these kicks for years, but now that the perfect color combo has been created, it’s time to get to purchasing. And since you already know your sister’s size, a matching pair would be a super rad gift.
7. One Cotton Chair from One Kings Lane: This is one of those decorating spurges that you might have to give yourself this holiday. A dalmatian print accent chair is just the right amount of pattern to add some excitement to your living space. Bonus points if you paint the legs a bright color!
8. But First, Coffee Mug from comes up with the most crazy cute items, and this mug is no exception. Give with your friend’s favorite coffee and you have a hit gift.
