gift guide: ruby press

I was so excited that Catherine asked me to contribute to this series because I love everything about gift-giving- the shopping, finding the perfect gift, the wrapping, and most of all, the giving! I certainly hope that the people I'm buying these gifts for don't read this blog {!!}, so just in case they do, I won't mention who they are for...

At $12 a pop, these John Derian mirrored buttons make adorable stocking stuffers. {These same designs also come as button pins, for only $6 each, and are perfect for adorning my gift wrap.}

I suppose I can tell you who THIS gift is for, as he can't read! It's for my 8 week old son Sammy...without the flower of course! {Love this shop on Etsy- the knit hats can be customized- you pick the colors, etc.}

Encyclopedia of the Exquisite, An Anecdotal History of Elegant Delights- is a perfect gift for my girlfriend who appreciates the beauty in life as much as I do. {And it's written by a sweet former editor I knew back in the day...}

Champagne is on the top of my list for the girlfriends who have everything...and Veuve Clicquot is my go-to bubbly every time. {Maybe I think it's such a great gift because it's something I always love receiving!}

And I love stuffing everyone's stocking with candies...and I adore Hammond's lollipops and candy canes.

And of course, I always give gifts from our clients' collections. Every year. After all, they wouldn't be our clients if I didn't ADORE them!

Thanks so much Catherine! xxM

I like the idea of the champagne with the lollipop tied to it with a beautiful, red grosgrain ribbon! Thanks for the idea! Great list.
