Gift Guide 3 by pickwickstyle
Last minute shoppers, we hear your cries and we are here for you until the very end! This final gift guide covers everything from essentials to stocking stuffers and there is still time to get in and make these pieces a part of your holiday giving! Clockwise, starting from the upper left-hand corner:
Lady Pickwick's Pick: Swing Design Lacquer Jewelry Box in Soft Pink - $130
This three tier jewelry box was originally created by a group of brilliant design minds in Concord, Massachusetts and it is as timeless as it is beautiful. So immortal is its sleek lacquered look and pull out trays that the group's boxes were actually featured on Oprah's list of favorite things in 2012! We also carry a single-tier matching box for $70! Give them as a set or alone, with a single piece of glittering jewelry on the inside for her to stumble upon later?
Bronte's Pick: Joyeux Noel Elf Soap - $5
Not only does this sweet little soap smell great, it is all natural and has a cheery elf stamped upon it to keep the holiday spirit by your sink-side for some time to come! This is one of our favorite stocking stuffers, brought to you by the company that makes the legendary "Egg White Soap".
Jody's Pick: Baby Alpaca Blanket - $220
These blankets are an example of what I like to call an "ultimate gift"- something that combines beautiful form and superior function. In options of light blue, cream, or saddle brown, imagine someone you love wrapping up in this throw-sized ultra-soft blanket. Soft enough for a movie night, a lay-down under the stars, or to swaddle a little one, these fine blankets will beat off many passing seasons of New England cold!
Brian's Pick - Aqaba Men - $85
Perfume communities laud this perfume for being long lasting and possessing of a classic, desirable scent. Woody and green to its core, Miriam Mirani's Aqaba Men is also packed with such tasty overtones as cognac, Amalfi lemon, and leather. This would be the perfect step-up for that gentleman you know who is on the verge of outgrowing the tacky cologne baths of youth!
Thistle's Pick - All the Time in the World: A Book of Hours by Jessica Kerwin Jenkins - $27.95
I could go on about this book and its companion, The Encyclopedia of the Exquisite, for hours, but I will abstain. All the Time in the World draws its inspiration from medieval books of hours, which imparted the most desirable and fascinating ways in which to spend one's time. A quote from Ms. Jenkin's website sums the impact of the beautiful little book as I never could:
All the Time in the World revives forgotten treasures, while inspiring a passion for good living in the present, and suggesting some bold and wonderful ways to spend whatever time we’ve got left.
Perfect for the eccentric, history-buff, or lord or lady out of time in the family!
This brings our gift guide series to a close, but I'm so addicted to Polyvore now that you may yet some themed sets popping up of a sudden! Have the merriest of holidays, dear readers- may you pass it with good friends, good food, and good cheer. From everyone here at Pickwick's, may the days to come be merry and bright!
