  1. I love your little reading/relaxing idea- I think I’m going to give my stepmom that exact gift. She loves tea (being from Europe) and is a book whore. Perfect!!! Thanks Erin!

  2. Great gift pics! I esp. love the ikat bowls and necklace.

    I’m obsessed with the Stieg Larsson trilogy, too. Can’t wait for the third one to come out. We were in Stockholm in May, so it’s fun to read the names of places we’ve been. I would note that it is very graphic, so perhaps not a universally appropriate gift…

  3. I’m in the process of reading Larsson’s book right now actually (it’s been making the rounds in my family)! So far, it’s great and I’m hoping to get his other two books for Christmas. :)

    As always, love ALL selections.

  4. Great gift guide Erin… I think we are long lost best friends because I LOVE everything on the list.
    Let’s see… I own several pairs of Jojo blings (being a fellow Bostonian), some of those chocolate mice were given to me last year for Christmas, and I’ve been dying over the Ikat bowls (I think I’ll have to get myself an early gift this year!)

    Where are the stockings from?

  5. Erin, where did you find those monogrammed mugs? I have literally been looking for something exactly like it to give as a little pressie for someone! Also, I dig your blog! Thanks you!

  6. I love that embroidered clutch, and I just picked up a pair of party blings at JoJo’s website (! Thanks for the ideas!
