Throughout the year, I like to keep a running list of items that catch my eye, from furniture to fuzzy slippers. I wanted to share these coveted items with you in hopes that they will inspire you or someone on your list.
1. Hans Wagner Papa Bear Chair
The Hans Wagner 50's Papa Bear chair was love at first sight. It's incredibly comfy and incredibly expensive--that's IF you can find a vintage piece. Several companies are now hitting the market with some pretty good repro versions.
2. Early Bird Olive Oil Granola
I have indulged in this brand of granola for years. It's definitely worth the shipping, and it's a great "out of the box" dry snack – crisp, salty, and perfect! Or, if you prefer, you can make it yourself with this recipe from Thekitchn.com
3. Everyday Tapers
Plain and simple, yet elegant, these tapered candles by Green Tree Home Candle are a great way to celebrate everyday moments. Available in a variety of colours, they are perfect for mantles or table settings.
4. Lake & Skye Fragrance Oil
I pretty much love all products from Lake & Skye since they are conscious and clean (ironically, fragrance is often not!). Each one is handcrafted using responsible practices to create aromatherapy solutions from perfume to floral waters. Visit the website for some worthy blog reads that validate her knowledge on developing this incredible product line.
4. The Citizenry Mercado Storage Baskets
Who doesn't love a multi-purpose basket? Sturdy and heavy-duty, they have a clean contemporary vibe for all sorts of uses! And they look great anywhere you place them.
5. Botanical Tales Mini Everlasting Wreaths
Simple ideas with a nature vibe is my gift wrapping style this year. These handmade mini everlasting wreaths add such a unique touch to home and gifts, and it boosts the simplest of craft papers. .
6. Emotional Barometer
A good stocking filler, these cards help us define and gauge our emotional mood with prompts to understand 20 inner moods with wisdom and clarity. It's also a fun piece to keep on your kitchen counter to encourage conversation.
Shira Gill has such a great approach to the balance between emotional well-being and our environment. If minimalism in any form appeals to you, then this is a worthy book to keep at your bedside.
8. Black Chai Tide Tea by Field + Supply
As an avid tea drinker, this organic loose leaf teais an absolute must for any morning or afternoon pick me up, but only if you can catch it in stock! The taste reminds me of faraway lands with a combination of strong, spicy Indian masala, with delightful notes of ginger, cardamom, and star anise.
9: Anya Hindmarch Kennedy Naplak Tote
This one is on my shortlist. Anything from this collection is trendy and carefully designed. The design is a masterful representation of functional chic; it's got enough storage to tote your essentials while also being on-trend with the color and materials. www.luxedesigners.com
10. Rumpl Blanket
If you haven't experienced Rumpl products, they are amazing. You can enjoy a good snuggle with anything they have. They are lightweight, super warm, indoor and outdoor use - even for dogs! They offer 25% off when you sign up for emails.
