Personalize a set of linen napkins or pair of hand towels for a powder room with a super stylish selection of monogram styles!

Totally obsessed with this gold rimmed zig zag tray (available in many colors) from Jill Rosenwald!


The little glass trays made from copies of vintage items are darling little gifts for a dresser or bathroom

I think everyone would love a little faux fur throw and this one is very affordable!


I found these birdhouses made of old books by Dave Vissat in a home store called Procopio in Vermont- they are so amazing. Call (802) 332-6400 to get info on all the books available! I love this Julia Child one!!!

These little numbered pill boxes are much prettier on a counter top than those plastic ones from the drugstore.

I am pretty obsessed with this carafe set. The gold is so chic! The small carafe and glass would be fab in a guest room next to the bed!


GORGEOUS little polished horn votives add a touch of natural glamour to anyone’s home- modern or traditional. I also am mad for quartz ones as well! Who doesn;t like a little candlelight?

Everyone seems to love the Mexican Otomi throws, but not everyone can spend $300 to get one- so gift a hint of one with these little pillows that would look great on a bed!

Maybe someone is having a tough year- instead of trying to cheer them with the classic “Keep Calm and Carry On” make them LAUGH with this version!


These fun items from Alice Supply Co. would help my mom the gardener weed in style:

This gorgeous stationery library look like a collection of bold colored novels- so pretty to display!


LOVE these little bud vases by Jonathan Adler for HSN– in gold or silver, particularly.

Cloche terrariums are a magnificent way to bring the outdoors in so why not bundle this book, cloche jar and terrarium kit together?

  1. like your gift list for the home… the “keep calm and… “take is too funny. these are creeping up everywhere. love the one from urban outfitters: “screw calm and get angry” a book of like-minded quotes. i just blogged with a list of my own stylish home gifties: (check it out if you have the time, thx). i admire your dedication to daily blogging! keep them coming.–deb

  2. awesome ideas! I have the Terrarium book and it’s really fun! Love Loaded Trunk’s pillows, and the Vagabond House (or looks like) pewter starfish in the top images with the linen napkins.

  3. Erin,
    Your are a wonderful supporter of the the little guys. I am thrilled to have been included in your stylish and affordable gift list. I am on the phone already for the Julia Child’s birdhouse. Happy Holidays…


  4. May I just say, not that you haven’t heard this before, that I so appreciate your blog! Your gift guides are creative, fun and unusual. Your regular posts are glamorous, inspirational and aspirational. I like your style. There. That is all. xoxo

  5. Erin, this is awesome! I love every item in here, very unique finds! Thank you SO MUCH for including our Freak Out and Throw Stuff Print! I am so appreciative! Happy Holidays to you and yours – Bridgette (aka Earmark)

  6. These are so great! I love the “Freak out and throw stuff” print even more than the “Keep calm and have a cupcake” version I’m starting to see everywhere, AND the fur throw is perfect for my impossible-to-shop-for sister-in-law who just moved into an austere apartment. Love it!

  7. OK- so this BY FAR the best gift idea blog entry Ive read so far this season- fabulous finds- I want basically everything on this list. I am loving the Mexican embroidered pillows for my daighters bedroom, and the gold bottom carafes-stunning!

  8. The stationery library is sooo cute….! I actually went to world market and saw the throw…it looks good but the hair just comes off all over you.
    The best throw i found for the money is at Pier 1, they have white SILKY one that is gorgeous… :))))))))))))))))))

  9. Similar minds! My first gift guide is going up tomorrow and my jaw just dropped when I saw 3 of the items already posted here. Haha. Well, if I have the energy I’ll find replacements but…… energy is a hot commodity these days.

  10. Erin,
    Just checked in recently to see what Jill had for the holidays and didn’t catch the chevron tray, glad you posted it-I love it and added it to my wish list.
