  • Curiosa

    Curiosa

    I posted about this book on the ReadyMade blog a couple weeks ago and realized that I’d never mentioned it here. It’s one of my favorite gifts for thinkie types. Here’s what I said: Curiosa has me spellbound. If you were the type of kid who saved special pebbles, scraps of paper, or important leaves, Barton Lidice Benes’s book of “obsessive assemblages” will hook you.
    I couldn’t skip a single item-the communion wafer from JFK’s funeral, a bit of mummy dust, jelly beans from Ronald Reagan’s desk, Roy Rogers’s nasal douche. Item by item, the artist explores our acquisition instinct by grouping small, fascinating objects in illuminating ways. Something about this book satisfies the part of you that wants to be remembered with love. So ispiring.

  • Silogirl Folds

    Silogirl-folds

    Letterpressed silhouettes of women’s profiles. I know we’ve all seen this motif before, but these cards are better. Just beautifully done, gorgeous paper, and the artist represents women from different cultural backgrounds.

  • Lisbon Lemon Olive Oil

    Lisbon-lemon-olive-oil

    Yum! This is my new favorite host gift. It’s about the same as a cheap bottle of wine, but so much more unique and thoughtful. Plus, it’s lemony delicious – fantastic in mashed potatoes, pasta salads, or as a light dressing for veggies or white fish.

  • Smith’s Rosebud Salve

    Smith-s-rosebud-salve

    This is the balm I use when my lips are cracked and thirsty for love. It smells like tea roses and has a flattering pink tint. So soft and healing, use it to get rid of icky skin flakes. Also makes a great cuticle cream.

  • Anchor Old Potrero 18th Century Style Rye

    Anchor-old-potrero-18th-century-style-rye

    A pet project of the Anchor Steam Brewery on San Francisco’s Potrero Hill, Old Poetrero Rye is their attempt to recreate the original American whiskey. Rye is nearly impossible to find in bars or liquor stores, so if you know a whiskey lover, this is a can’t-miss gift. Old Potrero is made in a small copper pot still at the distillery, and aged for a year in Oak barrels. There’s never enough to go around, so get yours while it’s in season and available.

  • Ohto Tasche Fountain Pen

    Ohto-tasche-fountain-pen

    Wouldn’t you feel classier, more official, writing with a fountain pen? This one is a wee-tiny pen when closed, but then you open it and stick the cap on the end, and it makes for a full-sized fountain pen. A portable penmanship upgrade. (via Uncrate)

  • Ingenuitea

    Ingenuitea

    My friend Heather cannot say enough about this teapot. The site has a very clear description of how it works: “When tea is ready, simply place it atop your cup. This will cause a valve at the bottom to release: crystal-clear tea flows down, while the mesh filter retains all the leaves.” Golf claps all around.

  • Fresh Hand and Body Lotion

    Fresh-hand-and-body-lotion

    Raw Beauty sent me a bottle of their “Black Raspberry Vanilla” lotion a while ago, and I didn’t pay much attention. This is because I’m a packaging whore, and I didn’t like the bottle. After all, half the appeal of a good lotion is how it looks pretty on the counter. Then I set the bottle on my desk and started using it when my hands were feeling chapped. It leaves my thirsty hands feeling silky and it has a subtle scent – like rich-girl neck. It also reminds me of a bowl of cream with a few raspberries tossed in. Anyway, when I realized that I might just order more when my stash runs out, I figured it was high time to tell you guys about it. Hemp oil plus carrot extract equals crazy softness.

  • Magpie Outfits for Your Nano

    Magpie-outfits-for-your-nano

    Maggie Stephens of Magpie recently sent us one of her super cute, durable vinyl covers. It’s a useful bugger, especially if you’re active. The cover secures to your clothing, or dangles from your purse strap from a removable keychain. The vinyl won’t get sweat stains from jogging or trips to the gym, and when you clip it to your waist, your iPod hangs upside down. This means you can read it without falling off the treadmill.
