My favorite part of the holidays, beyond keeping amazing company with loved ones, is showing them a bit of love and appreciation with a well chosen token of affection. I love gifts that are little luxuries: pretty, well-designed gifts they’ll absolutely treasure but may never have picked up for themselves. Gifts that add a touch of sparkle and fun to the everyday and that will make them smile time and time again. That’s how I like to do holiday gift giving!
