Santa is bringing the teal one for me for Christmas (shhh!).  How could I not?

Leather & Canvas Pillows, $29 Sm. & $36 Lg.- Corner Cartel

These pillows are so cool! I don’t want to call them a “guy gift” because they would look great in my home. However, they would make a great gift for a college age guy that needs help accessorizing or for someone that has a more rugged utilitarian feel in their home decor.

I fell in love with these little leathers bracelets. They are neutral in gold, silver and brown/copper leather for everyday wear and can be worn solo or with a grouping. The fine black script font phrases and words of encouragement on them are perfect for anyone at any place in their life. Who doesn’t need to be lifted up and reminded that they are wonderful?!

Waterproof, kissproof, smudge proof, offered in 70 different colors and can be mixed and mingled in to hundred or other hues and shades then topped off with a gloss. The staff at Dang Sassy make me laugh. They have little color stripes on their hands where they have been testing and showing colors to customers. They kind of look like little mocha, pink, red, berry zebras.

While on my hunt for the perfect gift in JAC’S (it’s hard to find just one) I chatted with the owner and they said, hands down this marble and mango wood cheese board is their #1 seller all year round. She casually mentioned that they sell about 10 a day during the holiday season. It’s personal with the initial, goes with all home décor styles because it’s neutrally beautiful and incredibly practical. Really, who doesn’t love cheese? The cheese spreader is made of stainless steel and mango wood and they carry this item in 18 letters.
