{gifts for the kitchen}

{silver-plated coffee, tea and sugar canisters for your favourite Parisian cousin's ex-girlfriend, who just may be the coolest girl ever, and whose quintessential French-ness gives her impeccable taste}

{organic Christmas pudding for your British boyfriend's lovely British mother who has never made it an issue that you do not know how to cook, tries to fatten you up with decadent cakes and other delicious desserts, and has always treated you as part of the family}

{hand-made multi-coloured sugar tablets for your favourite friends, because even skinny girls in skinny jeans can't resist breaking off pretty pieces of pastel sugar tablets in their morning latt├ęs}

{organic fairtrade chocolate for your hairstylist who looks like David Beckham, refuses to give you bangs, and since you always leave the salon feeling like the most beautiful girl around, who are you to argue?}

{hand-stencilled tea towels for your elegant grandmother in the south of France who loves to bring out all the old photo albums of when you were five, has beautiful table manners and loves anything that's monogrammed}

I love love love the silver sugar caddies- I think theyll make a great gift for my mom this Christmas.

Also, for anyone that has heard of Gilt Groupe, they are an online sample sale company. They sometimes offer home items, such as bed linens, towels and various home goods. Might be worth checking out- the goods are seriously discounted.

Here is an invite if anyone is interested-

Love those silver canisters.
I wonder if they can ship to the US before Christmas?
Of course, they are so beautiful, they will be worth the wait.

Hello everyone! Hope you're well on this chilly Tuesday morning. As always, thanks for all the lovely comments about these gift ideas -- the silver caddies and pretty sugar tablets really caused a stir! So much so, that the tablets are temporarily sold out -- apologies to those of you to tried to purchase them.

Happy week,
xo
