I’ve spent the last few months adding some final touches to my latest NYC apartment. Shopping for the little things has reminded me of all my favorite colors, patterns and styles. As you can see, pastels are the theme of the aesthetic lately with lots of whimsical patterns. I hope it gives you a little inspiration for any of your holiday gift giving – or wishlist making for yourself 💛
Papier Monogram Rick Rack Notecard Set ($31.00 for 10) I love to gift monogram stationary because it feels like such a treat and snail mail is still my favorite. I think the rick rack is a so dang cute on this notecard set so I might be ordering some for myself.
Hedley & Bennett Rose Pink Apron Essential Apron ($85) These are hands-down my favorite aprons and the new rose pink color is my dream! You can use code GOURMETGAB for 10% off any aprons.
GIR 5-Piece Ultimate Tool Set ($50.95) I’ve had my GIR spatulas for 8 years and they are *still* in perfect condition. I’ve acquired each of the tools in this Ultimate Set over time since then, but I LOVE that you can now buy this set in their brand-new gorgeous Mediterranean color palette.
Urban Outfitters Ombre Taper Candle Set ($8.00) I have these beautiful ombre candles and I almost hesitate to light them because they’re so pretty, but they add such a gorgeous and sophisticated vibe to dinners or parties.
CB2 Marta Double Old-Fashioned Glass ($17.76, set of six) These glasses are on my wishlist! They feel like super chic restaurant glasses and they’re a super reasonable price. Fancy enough for cocktails, but simple and light enough for water glasses.
Good American Fit for Success Jumpsuit ($155.00) This is my absolute favorite piece of clothing in my closet (so flattering! comfortable! just stretchy enough!) and it makes such a great gift. It’s definitely an investment piece, but I truthfully wear the jumpsuit every other week!
Jonathan Adler Fleur Coasters ($85, set of four) I’m obsessed with Jonathan Adler’s pieces and these little coasters would add such a fun pizazz to any coffee table. Perfect gift for anyone who loves entertaining!
Bed Threads Scalloped European Pillowcases ($120.00, set of two) These pillowcases popped up on my Instagram feed and have been following me ever since! I love the dainty, whimsical scalloped edges.
Calpak Insulated Lunch Bag ($42) I take my lunch to work everyday and a fun lunch box makes it feel so much more organized and pulled together. This gingham print lunch box is on my list!
Otherland Dessert First Candle ($36) – Otherland kindly gifted me a set of their candles last holiday season and I’ve been obsessed with them ever since. Their scents are so delicious and their packaging is gorgeous. The Dessert First and Dappled Wood scents are my favorite so far.
Cloud 5 ($139) On shoes are hands-down my favorite right now for errands, cooking and more. These Cloud 5 shoes slide right on and keep your feet comfy for everything from Trader Joe’s runs to all-day cooking projects.
Bala Bangles ($55) – If you haven’t heard of Bala Bangles yet, hop on board! The 1 pound weights look practically look like jewelry in comparison to your average workout weights. I love to put them on for a light workout while walking around the city or even cooking in the kitchen!
